I have a co-worker currently about halfway through this program, and she's been telling me about it. She makes it seem so attractive, d/t the fact that the program does not require all the common English, Lit, History, Government courses most programs require.
As I have very few of those "basic" courses done, not having to take them would be very appealing to me. Of course, Kaplan is VERY expensive...double or triple the cost of most other online programs (UT-Arlington, for example).
The program is regionally accredited, offers MSN in Admin and Education (and maybe Informatics...), has no tests, is 100% online. All very attractive.
So, I guess my question is: What's the catch? Besides the horrendous price tag, what are the other negatives for this program?
Do any of you have any real experience with Kaplan? Anything that I'm overlooking?
Thank you for any information you're willing to share.
