The bottom line is this...were not in high school anymore...sorry this is the real world...some places dont even help to find you an externship or help with job placement...you cant expect everyone to hold your hand on you will never make it through this course called life. U have to prove yourself in you want great things...as far as wasting money...guess what education costs...its what u are able to learn from it and take from it that matters...and another helpful tip I have learned from one of the amazing teachers there...u want something go out there and grab it...if u want an amazing extership site ...or if u didnt want to wait a week or 2 for one..u should have been looking for it before the time was due...things cant be handed to u on a silver platter...or u will never know the meaning of hard work and acheiving your goals..I attend this school and currenlty I am going into my 6th mod..and honesty Ive seen some of the students act like there still in high school and Im the same age as most olf them...and those are the ones that show there true character and wont make it...not anything to do with the school...Anytime Ive had a problem or issue it was delt with on the spot and they cared..

NOT worth your time and money... You learn a little of this and a little of that which is expected for a 9 month program but its not much. The classes are a joke and pretty much anyone can pass with an A. I was in the president's club (4.0 GPA & perfect attendance) 3 times and that has not help me one bit with finding a job. Most of their internship sites just use the interns as "free" labor so don't except to get hired.

The school is ONLY interested in trapping people and making money. They claim that there are so many jobs and we are in high demand because we are new to the field and eager/willing to learn but that is NOT the case. MOST places want EXPERIENCE people and all you need is the 1 person who has experience over you and there goes your chances. The school claims to send your resume to places but who knows for sure and it doesn't help if they send 10+ resumes to a place hiring 1 person.

I did well at that school and feel I was prepared for the real world office situations but I still have NOT had the chance to prove myself because I can NOT find a job. Interview after interview after interview...

Oh... by the way if you do go to that school "good news Monday" is a complete JOKE and don't believe everything that they say. ASK questions before you sign up, ask lots of questions, starting pay, benefits, how many jobs there really are, are we really in high demand, do they hire people with experience over people without experience... 160hr internship is nothing, i finished that in 1 month.

Question them and see what they say. They will prob try to bs you and sugar coat everything so you sign up and they can get the money. Don't waste your time, money, gas, etc... Just go to a REAL college where they will work with you and help you. Also, on the side volunteer at a hospital or doctors office to gain experience so you have a better chance at landing the job.

SOo HORRIBLE... I wish i knew someone before i wasted my money and time going there. You learn NOTHING and teachers dont care. They dont tell you when your done with your hours that graduation is 6months later. It took them over 2 weeks to place me at a site to do my externship. If you leave a message dont expect a call back EVER!! they onnly want your money
