Brightwood College - Hammond Reviews

It has been a great experience as an adult student attending school online at Kaplan. I was very nervous in the beginning but now it is smooth sailing and I have been sailing with a current GPA of 3.75. The online choice was my only option in going back to school working full time prevented me from attending traditional schooling. To me now online studies is now second nature; I will probably get bored when I finally finish, you never know I might even tackle getting my Masters!

Kaplan gave me credit for my prior learning as a Medical Assistant and for my previous work experience in the mortgage industry. My program is geared in giving me the knowledge that I need for my new career choice as a Healthcare Administrator. All my professors have all been supportive in my success. Last comment if I can do it anyone can attend Kaplan online studies. First of my family attending college, immigrant parents, mother to 4 adult children and 9 beautiful grandchildren; Yes you can do it look at me I did it !

The online portion of the course is fairly easy to complete your lessons with. In addittion to the class sizes offering close knit relationships with both peers and professors. The workload only demands consistant focus and dedication. The staff also is helpful with anything you would possibly require assistance with. However, the accelerated program is really what sets this school apart from the rest.
The career aspect of this school is absolutely brilliant. The program prepares each student, for the workforce enviornment they are expected to corresspond with. Any additional serivces are always easily accessible. The staff aim to aid all students with the drive and tools to succeed and grow. Overall, in my opinion, the rate of this college is no less than acceptional.
