With Keiser University there were so many red flags, I wish I had paid attention from the start. Now I am 30, 000 in debt making no more money than I started out with.
First off, let me tell you- STAY FAR AWAY from this school.
They will lure you in, paint this picture that it is an excellent school and that the counselors have your best interest in mind. Well they don't. All they want is your money. Here is my experience with Keiser University:
First off, several years ago I toured the school just to see what it was about. The admissions counselor- Chris, was so friendly and nice to me. I wasn't sure if that is where I really wanted to go, I wasn't even sure if I liked any of the programs. He asked me what I was good at in everyday life. I told him I use computers a lot so he suggested the Computer program. He said I was a perfect fit. Blah blah blah. I wasn't sure if that was the field I wanted to choose so I said I will think about it. Well he started calling me every day without fail. Then when I stopped answering his calls, he would call me from ANONYMOUS NUMBER! That was a red flag right there. Anyways. A year went by and I decided maybe I want to go back to the school again and see if there was something that i really wanted this time. I saw Chris again and he was raving about the X-Ray tech program saying he really sees me in it and that it is an excellent field to go in at my age. So he convinced me to sign up. They are SO CONVINCING. Anyway. I completed all the Gen-Eds. Some of them were so easy, I had never made such good grades in my life. But it was weird because I barely tried. I figured maybe I really am learning with this "individual student focus." Well once I finished all my Gen-Eds I realized maybe X-Ray isn't what I really want, so I switched to the Medical Assissting because I could get right in. The program director for the Medical Assisting was excellent, I won't lie. He knew his stuff and I really learned from him. It is a shame to see him in that rat-hole school. Well graduation time came, I completed all my classes for my Associates Degree, completed my externship. Keiser's bursar said I was financially cleared so I would be good to go for graduation. I was excited. I had a couple interviews once I finished school, but never got hired. I harassed and hounded student services to find me a job. THEY HAVE NO CONNECTIONS. When you are in the program, they make it seem like they have endless doctor's offices and employer's who come to the school seeking out "highly educated" Keiser grads. Well that is BS! They do not. I was given the run-around every single time I would speak with the job placement idiot. I would be SHOCKED if at best, she forwarded my resume out on Craigslist. I know she didn't. So I went through all that schooling. All that time. ALL THAT DEBT! And once you graduate (in my case and MANY OTHERS!) Job placement is a JOKE!!! They will NOT help you. So now I am going to have to pay off all this DEBT. And I am no better off than I was. I just have a degree from KEISER UNIVERSITY. They just suck money out of you. And give you free hotdogs and hamburgers now and then. Because at Keiser University, students come FIRST. Do you know why? Not because they want to see you succeed. No. They want all your money, no refunds, so Dr. Keiser can fly around in his fancy f***ing jet.
Live and learn is all I can say to this. I hope other students considering going to this money-trap scam school will think twice. Don't say you haven't been warned.
