Kaplan Course

Seems like everyone bashes Kaplan's course or at least rec's testmasters over it.  I took kaplan last spring for the june lsat, got freaked out and postponed to october and since I enacted kaplan's higher score guarantee, I get to take the course again for free.  I am hoping to put a lot more in this time and hopefully I get a lot more out of it.  Any thoughts from others about Kaplan?

i dont like it.  they are very limited in the information they teach.  the most i learned was from self-teaching.

one negative thing i experienced from kaplan, and i hope this is an isolated incident, was that the teachers at my center would bash the students behind their backs. i would be near the front desk and they'd be talking about how some student didn't improve at all between the diagnostic and the midterm, etc... in my opinion, that's pretty unprofessional.

my instructor came late to every lesson, i think thats very unprofessional considering we are paying him top dollar... considering he only teaches 8 classes at three hours a pop thats 24 lesson hours at $1100 thats close to $46 an hour.

saying "yeah, john didn't do the homework. no wonder he still got a 148 on the midterm!" in public where any student can hear it.

i would consider that negative encouragement.  it would have been better if they had the balls to say it to his face.  i bet he was pasty.
