i took the dental assistant program at kaplan and everything is a waste of time my tuition was $19,000 and the book u only use 2 of them out of 4 and i feel that they care more about ur shoes looking extra white to school other than caring about ur learning! all they care about is trying to make the school look good when really its not what everyone makes it sound! u get barely any hmwk and everything is so fast pace and you will never go thru the checkoffs u do in the lab for each course again ...so u tend to forget how to do the procedures bc u only did them at one time! ur only there for 4 hours and they give u 4 break! i ten min then a 20 min and 2 ten mins again they r a waste! bc all that adds up an u are paying twenty dollars an hour and many many times you wont even do much at school! so u find u are paying $20 an hour for nothing! and ur garb u get in the lab is the same one u keep it and wont get a new one for liike 3 months and it gets dirty and u wear the same masks for like 2 months or until urs breaks! my mask was dirsty from my makeup and was ripping and still didnt want to give me another one isnt that ridiculous!!??? i broke it o purpose just so they can give me another one! xray course is a bitch everyone is always stressed and angry bc u only have 1 month to do it the same day u start that course they throw u in the room and start ding it and the teachers get mad bc of all the retaks u have and everyone has 4 patients to bring in for 1 month an its a mess

I attend Kaplan College in milwaukee WI and... well it sucks I am so disappointed with the education I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it. I feel unprepared for the work force. Kaplan College is a joke it is ghetto on the part of both the faculty and the students it lacks discipline and they will let anyone in. I have made high honors and I still ask my self what have you learned. My plan was to just get some information before i knew it I was visiting blink of an eye I was enrolled. I should of quite when I had the chance but I felt trapped. I will never ever ever recommend Kaplan to anyone. Their reputation here is so bad no one wants them for interns its awful... I am so depressed and now I will owe $15,000

Kaplan College should be fully investigated by the federal government. When I came here I wondered why no cameras were allowed and why everything had to be shredded. You do not have to have a masters to teach here, you have to be in a masters program, and I guess a person can stay in graduate school forever. It shows in the quality of the teachers and employees. Until the law catches up with Kaplan, there is nothing we can do about their fradulant practices.

Went to Kaplan in Phx for the Vet Tech program. Its been well over a year and I still dont have a job as a VT. When I started there, I was told "Oh yeah, as a VT you will start out at 16 to 18 bucks an hour!" No...I was offerred a job at 8.50 an hour part time (but considered full time) 30 hrs a week! No benes or anything. How lovely! Wonder where Im supposed to live on 8.50 an hour. So.... I now owe 20K in loans and I am doing the same job I was doing BEFORE Kaplan making 12.37 per hour. At least these guys have benes. It has nothing to do with pets and my education makes no difference to the job I do. I wish I could actually give my worthless degree back for the money I owe. I HATE Kaplan College. Dont go there.

To whom this may concern,
I am recently employed under the supervision of Mike Burkett at Kaplan College located in Jacksonville, Fl. on beach Blvd. It would be to your advantage to have someone, please investigate his management style. His idea of management is to bully and intimidate employees to the fact that he has created a hostile work environment for everyone with exception of his favorite two employees, Brandie and Zena. I am requesting for your immediate attention to this matter before extreme measures be taken. I would hate for such a great school to go under due his bullish behaviors and intimidating attitude. Also, please investigate his side kick, Lindsay, that is so submissive to him and does any and all unethical demands Mike request her to do knowing that it is wrong and defying. I am thanking you in advance for your immediate attention to this request.

This school totally SUCKS!!!! You pay all this money to get your degree and then you find out its WORTHLESS. Google kaplan college riverside news and you will find out what i mean.
This school gives you all these books and you only use half of them and half of those are outdated. As long as you attend class everyday you will pass the class even if you don't do the work. The tests are soooo easy because the day before they give you all the answer so all you have to do is memorize the multiple choice and if you still fail they give you another chance to do the test again. So is it fair for others that do the work and study and at the end you get the same grade as the other people that don't do anything? Another thing about this dumb school is half of the work you have to do has anything to do with what you there for. For example we had a project about selling computer programs?????What is that about.
After you graduate and need help looking for a job all they say is we will contact you to make an appointment so they can go over job opportunities and they NEVER call you all they do is ignore your calls.
Please DO NOT go to this school its a waste of time and money!!!!!!

I just got a phone call from a kaplan college in midland texas, that woman needs to learn how to respect people`s privacy, don`t ask personel questions, what company are you working for, where? how much? and when ?, don`t be sarcastic, truck driving is a good job by the way, after that phone call kaplan will be the last place i`ll look at.
