I have read nightmare reviews about Kaplan University's financial aid. Has it improved within the last year? How are their Better Business Bureau reviews?
It is always difficult to give a specific yes or no on whether or not an online college or university has improved since their past consumer reviews. In most cases reviews are written by people who had some sort of a negative experience, while those with positive experience merely go on there way without writing a any. I did some quick research, and it would seem that the BBB has rated Kaplan University with a B, which is admirable, and there are a number of online reviews on other sites that give them both good and bad reviews. So, what I am going to suggest you do is a little more research on Kaplan University as well as a number of other online colleges and Universities. This will give you a well-rounded understanding of not only a wide range of schools, but also will give you perspective on the entire field of online education. There are a number of Pro and Cons when it comes to earning you degree online, and it is better to be aware of these before you settle on one specific school.
