APOLLO COLLEGE / Fraud and just plain BS
Please do not go to Apollo College for Medical Billing and Coding course. They are nothing more than a bunch of liars there. They pull you into their crap classes with a bunch of people that look like they just got out of jail or off the streets just to MAKE THAT SALE to get anyone's butt into a seat. I was told that "Oh yeah we'll help you get a job" - sure they will all they do is send your resume out along with about a million other's and it's usually to the same darn company. They also DO NOT CLUE YOU INTO the fact that in the Medical Billing and Coding course that YOU HAVE TO OBTAIN A CODING CERTIFICATE - well guess what they don't offer nor help you obtain that certification, nor do they tell you up front about it. Oh yeah also... you have to be into the billing part of your field for TWO YEARS before you can obtain the correct certification for coding in order to obtain a job. I have been out of school since March 2008 and I haven't obtained a job yet - I am currently working in a kitchen at a Senior Center just to make ends meet. I should say that I was so thrilled and proud of myself to get my diploma for this coursework but now what a total 100% disappointment it has been - I am sure that the economy might have something to do with the no job thing but most of it is because these universities that are out there DO NOT let you into all the facts before they reel you into their scam classes and charge you out the nose. I did go to WIU (Western International University) and there they have good classes and also great teachers - that is where I'll be heading next to finish out my BS in Accounting which I should have in the first place. Oh well live and learn.
