Need the scoop on Kaplan schools/anyone here a student of theirs

I have been thinking of going to a local Kaplan school (NOT online) and going for my MA in ten months or so. So what's the scoop with these cats? Are the professionally respected enough for me to get a job after having gone to their school?

Has anyone here gone to Kaplan?

They want something like $16,000 for tuition which just seems ridiculous to me.

Re: Need the scoop on Kaplan schools/anyone here a student of theirs


I am a recent graduate of kaplan university. I attended online class to obtain an associate's degree. I passed the certification exam through AAMA. Kaplan was a wonderful school. My advice is to go for it. My total tuition was $18,000 only because I had transfer credits. Hope this helps and good luck to you.
