Online Course Experience – Online courses were supposed to be more convenient for working people. I felt the deadlines and the amount of work were anything but convenient. It was not a convenience other than not having to travel to class every week. The interaction between peers was limited to discussion boards but that is expected.

Discussion Boards – The class interactions are pretty amazing. You check in for discussion boards every week and interact with others by responding to their posts. Some people are more informed than others and it can be an interesting mix. The Professors check in with the boards and if they feel you could expand on what you were writing, they are great about encouraging you so you achieve the maximum points. Don't get me wrong, they will not do it for you and if you miss the hint, I am sure it will show in your grade for discussions.

Online Groups – I have found many social outlets that are a part of my school. Not only that, but there are many honor societies that you can be a part of and communicate with your group members in a way that distance traditionally wouldn't allow. I would like to see more involvement, but realistically, considering it is an online school and students are from all over the place, they do pretty well.

Online Academics – The best things about the online experience with Kaplan is the fact that everything you need is provided to you. The Professors are helpful and encouraging and offer help at almost every turn! You, of course, are subject to get a couple not so wonderful instructors, but out of the last two seven terms, I have only had two I wouldn't ask for again. That's a pretty good track record for a school! The financial aid department has a few kinks to work out, but overall, if you are an independent and driven self starter, this is a great place to be!

I enjoy the students that are in class from other countries and learning about the diffrence in how things are done there. It's very unique.

All Online Classes – Some down times and log in trouble a few times in two years.

Specific Major – It is great studying for a legal major. The unique aspects of my program, workload, curriculum, facilities, and internship/job opportunities is that, the degree is earned on my time.

The student body at Kaplan is very diverse, All locations, races, religions, sex are represented at the school.

Online Experience – The online experience is very flexible, different fron traditional classroom.The worload is about the same, the professors and peer to peer interaction is waesome. There are seminars for open communication with everyone, and Discussion threads for further communications and there is always e-mails.

Quality of Post-Grad Services – I really don't know. I haven't looked into any of these things yet.

On-Line Vs. Classroom Studies. You have to be a self-starter and disciplined to go to school on-line. I am both of those. I like being able to work at my own pace and working from home fits my life-style. I do wish I could have a face-to-face relationship with the professor and my peers, but you can't have it all. I have made some friends from all over the country through email and that has been a pleasant experience.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Working with the financial aid department at Kaplan was an acceptale experience. They did everything they could to make it painless, never-the-less, it took almost a full day to complete everything. Finding out ahead of time, what documents will be required and gathering them before calling is the only way to get the process done in one afternoon.

INSTRUCTORS ARE ALL VERY PERSONABLE – THE INSTRUCTORS ARE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE EXPERIENCE HERE. THEY HAVE ALL BEEN VERY HELPFUL AND UNDERSTANDING.IF THE FINANCIAL AIDE PEOPLE COULD TAKE A CUE FROM THEM IT WOULD REALLY HELP.ALSO MY ADVISORS HAVE FOR THE MOST PART BEEN GREAT,EVEN THOUGH THEY TOO SEEM FRUSTRATED WITH THE FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE NEEDED INFORMATION IN A TIMELY FASHION.
Recent Alumnus 2010-06-20T14:12:41Z
tHE FINANCIAL AIDE DEPT IS LACKING ANY GUIDANCE AND CAN NEVER GIVE AND ANSWER JUST WANTS YOU TO DO WHAT THEY SAY WITH NO EXPLANAIONS. I HAD A VERY GOOD FINANCIAL AIDE OFFICER MY FRESHMAN YEAR BUT SINCE THEN HAVE HAD VERY LITTLE CONTACT OR HELP FROM THE 3 OR 4 SINCE. THEY SET UP PAYMENT PLANS WITHOUT DICUSSING THEM WITH ME,CANCELL LOANS WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE. I HAVE HAD MY RATES CHANGE DURING A YEAR WITHOUT ANY NOTIFICATION UNTIL THEY NOTIFY ME THAT I HAVE TO PAY HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS OR BE BE LOCKED OUT OF CLASS.FOR THE MOST PART I HAVE ENJOYED MY CLASSES BUT SOMETIMES HAVE HAD A HARD TIME GETTING THEM SCHEDULED. FOR INSTANCE I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TAKE AN EVIDENCE CLASS FOR OVER A YEAR THAT I MARKED REQUIRED,BUT I HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED BY MY ADVISOR THAT IT IS NOT GOING TO BE OFFERED ANY MORE,BUT SHE HAS NO IDEA WHAT IS TO REPLACE IT. I NEED TO KNOW SINCE IT IS ONE OF 4 CLASSES I HAVE TO HAVE TO GRADUATE IN FEBRUARY. THERE SEEMS TO BE A REAL LACK OF COMMUNICATION AND SUPERVISON IN SOME AREAS ,LIKE FINANCIAL AIDE AND COURSE OFFERINGS.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
