I am in disbelief as I write this, but I have to call Hopkins out for what I consider to be a lack of performance from the AAP Biotechnology program. Granted, Hopkins already has a reputation for not tending to the needs of its students and having a higher-than-average portion of undergrad students transfer out of its 4-year degree program. Nonetheless, I am surprised that after spending several semesters in their AAP biotech program, my opinion of the program is that it is a bit of a degree mill. The courses cost over $3,000 a piece. I have known multiple students who have started in an online course only to find that after a few weeks, they feel that course is poorly organized. Then the school promptly informs them that they would have to forfeit about $500 to drop the course at that point. My opinion, and the opinion of several of my fellow students, is that this program is not worth the money.

Hi Leslie,

Thanks much for logging on with feedback about John Hopkins University online. Can you specify for us what AAP means? Is this an online degree program?

All the Best Vicky
