Brown Mackie College - Indiana, South Bend - Nothing but trouble

Posted: 2015-09-27 by    Reviewer10334
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I enrolled into the occupational therapy assistant program last year. I had credits from a few years back and they transferred to this degree, so I could have completed my degree in less than a year. I applied for financial aid. Got my lons and grants. Everything was settled, and I began going to class. I received an overage check for about $300 from them. Asked about it, FA said everything was fine and this money was extra, so it was mine. I cashed the check and paid bills with it. A week later, they called and told me I had to return the check or pay it back, they made an error. I couldn't pay...

Brown Mackie College - Kentucky, Fort Mitchell - Low, poor quality education

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
I began attending this school in August 2009, and it wasn't long before I discovered that they weren't even accredited. They had people with no more than associates degrees teaching, but this was updated before I received my own associates. The selling point for me was that I could walk to school, and it was only one course per month for full-time enrollment. Brown Mackie is a business and medical school which makes a half-hearted attempt at teaching information technology (IT). They had no computer lab; in class, four used PC's were our "lab." Earning a Comp-TIA A+ certificate was...

Brown Mackie College - Georgia, Atlanta - Misuse of money and misguided education

I have been here at Brown Mackie College for more than a year now and I don't feel any closer to learning what I was suppose to know. This school has seriously scammed so many people out of their money its ridiculous. I haven't seen not a dime of the money I received from federal grants or either of the loans I have taken out, but instead I am in a position of owing them money and eventually having to pay back my loans. getting the very expensive iPads that they like to hype people up into getting usually sets you up to having a balance you have to pay. For some reason even though its...

Brown Mackie College - Kansas, Lenexa - Denial into nursing clinical

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
My complaint is I was denied entry into nursing clinical after completing all nursing pre-requisites, physical, immunizations, CPR and everything needed to be considered for the nursing program at the time of my enrollment a teas score of 50 was required. After finishing all courses and submitting my application into clinical i was denied because my teas score was not a 58 which they now required without notification to any students. And BMC students are only allowed to take the teas test 3 times in a two year period which my submitted score was my third attempt i was told i could not take the teas...

Brown Mackie College - Ohio, Cincinnati - Biggest Mistake

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Brown Mackie is not who they say they are. I graduated from the Vet Tech program less than 9 months ago and have nothing to show for it. No jobs and no leads. I have had interviews and work interviews, but they never lead anywhere and at a couple of them I overheard and was told directly that they don't usually hire Brown Mackie Students. The teachers in the program are awesome, but in order for them to get paid they also have to act like Brown Mackie has a good rep. They would always say how well respected they were in the community and how they are AVMA accredited, but I have doubts that...

Brown Mackie College - Indiana, Indianapolis - Educational Quality and Treatment of Instructors

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
I was an instructor at Brown Mackie College in Indianapolis during 2013. If you are considering working for or attending this school, do yourself a favor and look at the facts. They offer an accelerated program--a semester's "learning, " as they call it, in one month. This is their main selling point. There is a reason why no one else offers this--it's a terrible idea. It doesn't work.
If you are a student taking a course, you cannot absorb information in classes that are four hours long. More importantly, you can't possibly expect effective instruction from a professor...

Dear Syndney Sattler and Brown Mackie College-Atlanta staff,
This is my last attempt before exhibiting my experience with the college. October 2, 2012 is a day that has unfortunately negatively impacted my future plans and educational outlook due to the transactions of Brown Mackie College. When I first visited the college that Tuesday I spoke with Michael Smith who insisted I come to the campus. Based on scrambled handling and vague information provided to me in our encounter, I now strongly believe because of him I am in a horrible predicament. I never expected that a friend of the college...

Brown Mackie College - Kentucky, Ft. Mitchell - Fraud, Deception, Coecion

There are so many things that are wrong with, Brown Mackie College's, it's hard to know where to even start! First of all, the entire recruiting and enrollment process is not only deceptive and misleading, students are flat out LIED to everything from class scheduling to financial aid. BMC doesn't want to let the cat out of the bag that they don't have a regional accreditation, thus non of their credits will transfer to other local colleges. They are a college for profit and believe me the only thing they are interested in is lining their corporate pockets. It's definitely...

Brown Mackie College - They are not fully accredited and their credits do not transfer to other universities

Complaint Rating:  75 % with 4 votes
I graduated with a 4.0 (1 of 4 students). Brown Mackie boasts a lifetime job assistance program. They didn't send me on 1 interview in 11 months. They are not fully accredited and their credits do not transfer to other universities. They do not inform their prospective students of this info and they still recruit for programs such as paralegal and vet tech when there is no market for these in the area, leading students to believe that there are. They won't even hire their own graduates for positions open on their campus....

Brown Mackie College - Indiana, Ft. Wayne - lack of community support

Parkview Hospital and Lutheran Hospital will not accept a Brown Mackie application. They are 2 of the largest medical providers in the tri-county area. Brown Mackie College cannot offer community supported clinicals other than hole-in-the-wall offices that want free help with cleaning and tasks any high school student could perform. I am paying a parent plus loan until the year 2027, my daughter has the same job (cna) she had prior to attending Brown Mackie College. She was on the honor roll every semister 2005-2007, Associate Degree in Medical Assisting. She has a solid work history with perfect...

Brown Mackie College - Indiana, Merrillville - Credits not tranferrable, not creditable they lied

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
My problem with BM is that they claim to be acreditable school, but after attending there and graduating from my program of medical assistant I still have not been able to get a job. I am not attending Ivy Tech in Valparaiso and none of my credits from BM would transfer. I had to take almost all of my classes over again due to the false notion about credit transferring. I also realize that BM level of education that they provide is way undersatisfactory. I am taking the same classes at Ivy Tech that I took at BM and the level of education that is being taught is night and day. Brown Mackie's...

Brown Mackie College - Florida, Miami - Lies and Manipulation

I graduated Brown Mackie College with an "associates degree" in Paralegal Studies in October 2006. Made straight A's and B's the whole time I was there only to find out that the school is not "regionally accredited." They lied to me from the beginning by stating that my degree will transfer to either Barry University, St. Thomas University and/or Florida International University. I even had a professor, which he stated was an attorney, only to find out via FLA Bar Attorney Search that he IS NOT an attorney. What's even crazier is that I had a very bad medical emergency and was not...

This “so called school” wow! Really..how does our Government allow this type of business to function.? Talk about organized criminals and schemes to give people trying to do good things in their lives false hope and a mouthful of lies while they collect their profit. I should have listened to all the complaints but instead I trusted Brown Mackie College and completed my program only to find out I cannot even sit for my required National Exam that is required in order to do the job. This should so be against the law..Last time I checked most people going to college are going so they can...

I too was taken by BMC many years ago in Overland Park, KS. I worked in the investigative field, and thought I had researched them...boy, was I wrong!! I enrolled in the now long defunct court reporting program. You were supposed to be up to 45 wpm to go to the first speed class..none of us attained that, and it just snowballed from there. As it turns out, only 2 students in the entire time they had the program actually ever did get a decent job when they somehow managed to graduate. I switched to the paralegal program when I was tired of being lied to by the CR instructors..another mistake!! I...

Brown Mackie College - Ohio, Cincinnati - Worthless School/College

Complaint Rating:  88 % with 8 votes
I was a full time student attending the Veterinary Technician Program at Brown Mackie College in Cincinnati. First off, it would have taken me just 2 months shy of 3 YEARS to graduate their program because of all the BS they put me through and they kept failing me in my classes so they could get more money out of me. Then when I was finally at a place I really liked doing my externships, they decided to KICK ME OUT OF MY PROGRAM over a mistake! Hey, is'nt that why we are in school; to learn...So now I am about $30, 000 in debt in student loans, and probably spent close to $10, 000 out of my...
