Brown Mackie College - support of graduates and credit transfer
I attended Brown Mackie Ft. Wayne from 2003 to 2006. Upon enrollment I was offered an account where they would handle my tuition and disperse my funds and re-enroll me for loans and FAFSA and other grants and I would not have to worry with it due to being a single mom..i was also told how my credits would transfer to other colleges to further my degree and that I would be given resources upon graduating for job placement and provided assistance if ever need arises..none was farther from the truth...my credits were unrecognizable to other colleges or universities. As soon as I graduated my federal taxes were taken for 10 yrs to pay off debts they incurred on my behalf...$35000+ and I was originally told it would be half that around $17000. I was unemployed for 2 yrs during recession period of society..i returned to BMC for assistance and was met with we can put you a job placement class..i have since filed a borrowers defense application..
Brown Mackie College - cincinnati campus
I attended Brown Mackie when I was approached to attend and come visit the campus they lied about many things the first was that they were accredited the second was that I didn't have to pay back a lot of my students loans because it was free money from the govt. I took out extra money because it was free money and in the end that was a lie. I was lied to about how much money I would make after I got my degree and I was lied too about my job placement there after. I told the lady I wanted to do teaching she said no told me there was a huge waiting list and my only other option was healthcare administration. There were many lies they told me know I am in debt up to my ears with no real pay and most places laugh when I tell them where I went to college. I wish I could take it back I would habe never never never attended there or took our that much money.
I'm currently suffering from the debt I have in student loans because of the lies that I was told by the staff at this school. I dropped out after a few months of classes and now I'm left with debt...Read full review

Brown Mackie College - Lies and program requirements
my complaint is that I recently attended BMC Lenexa campus in the LPN program having completed all my prerequisites and taking the nursing teas test for the third time and completing all requirements to enter nursing clinical I was denied entry in to clinical because my teas score was not acceptable as they required a score of 58 which was not the case when I entered the program. There requirement of a teas score of 58 was just introduced into the program with no notification to students currently attending the nursing program with hopes of getting into clinical. As soon as I was denied entry it was suggested I might consider enrolling into the MA program which would make attend school for another 10 months and following completion of this program I would be able to make less money than I make now and be thousands of dollars in debt with nothing to show. the teas score at the time I entered school was a passing score of 50 which I have. I finished my pre-requisites with one month delay in starting clinical as I had no more classes to take. I spoke with admissions, the director of nursing, medical director and financial aid before taking the month off during this time the teas score requirement went up and I was told I was a new enrollment and has to follow the new guidelines for entering clinical. I should be doing clinical now instead I'm trying to find a school that will admit me in to clinical. My graduation date should be August 2014 but now I have not a clue as to when and where I will graduate from. my teas score is above 50 and my GPA is 3.4
This is by far the WORSE college in all of the USA. They have stolen money from injured Iraq War Veterans, Veterans, Non Veterans and etc. Their education does not mean anything once your out of thi...Read full review

Brown Mackie College - Financial aide dept.
First of all I must say I am extremely upset with the fact that I had completed my FASFA in February of this year (2012) It is now May 10, 2012 and my FASFA hasn't been added on because they have still not received the software needed to add it on? This is something that should have already have been done. I am also upset about how you are treated when asking for or turning in a stipend. I shouldn't have to stand in the main entry and be questioned about how much money I have in there, am I sure and so on before I receive my stipend, same thing happens when turning it in and now I have to actually have a meeting with the President of the school bring in my bills, rent and etc to even receive the money I am suppose to get! I feel this is ridiculous! Last month I had to have a class in a motel due to lack of space in the college, not to mention the news was at the school this month. If I must say if we don't have room now why would we publicize this school at this moment? This is just a "few" of several issues going on here at this college. I will by all means not be referring anyone to this school. Everything about it is wrong all the way down to some of the most "ghetto" acting teachers I have EVER seen! No professionalism what so ever from the majority of the teachers there but they sure will grade you on yours. I will be letting other student know about this site so they to can bring their issues here and hopefully something will be done about this school. I would just drop but it's hard to once you've already got so much tied up into it already. I should have done a little more research on the school before I entered I just learned their success level is 41%
