Everest College / FRAUDS

1 Colorado Springs, CO, United States Review updated:

I recently dropped out of Everest College after 3 weeks of attending.. This school and its curriculum is a complete mess!! Since when do the student teach themselves the material they need to know to work in the field that they have chosen?! I don't know about anyone else but this is a total difference to me on the term of "hands-on" Our teacher was constantly leaving class to do whatever she had to do while we pretty much did our assignments or whatever it is we wanted. after 3 days of being in class we were to start doing injections. Now for me that is a little too fast. I understand its an accelerated program but damn!!! I feel in the short time that I was there that I learned ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! if you give me a spelling test I could probably pass that but as far as a test asking my knowledge on a chapter I will completely fail it.. So this is a warning to anyone that is looking to possibly attend Everest ... check your options very carefully.. I am now enrolled as a student at College America and I couldn't be happier that I am getting an actual Associates degree instead of just a diploma!

    I graduated from Everest College with honors. It has been 10 years since my graduation and I am a successful Medical Assistant. I am proud of being an Everst graduate and recommend it to everyone.

    I believe it depends on the student. Dedication is required. In order to remember a whole chapter/unit requires studing. They do not give diplomas for free. Just because you paid does not mean you get an automatic "A".

    Maturity is a factor. This is after all adult education. So actually having to work hard is the key.

    By the way, we started injections the very first day. I thought this was a great idea. Gives the student a better idea, if the program is right for them. Why wait 3days later?

    It just irritates me when people bash the school because they simply were a failure.

    Next time try harder in what you do. You might be successful.

    By the way don't use children as an excuse. I had a toddler, worked, took care of my husband and my house and did it.

    Some lessons Ive learned after having been screwed by a "business/career/trade" college.
    1)If the school is Private, stay away from it
    2)If the school is for-profit, stay away from it
    3)If the school offers people the ability to finish a course offered at a public college or university in less that half the time it normally takes, stay away from it
    4)Do the credits transfer to other PUBLIC colleges and Provincially funded universities? if not, stay away from it
    5)are there multiple posts about the institution on educational forums and on the internet in general that are negative in nature, if so, stay away from it
    6)Does the school offer job placement assistance, guaranteed high paying jobs after graduation, scouts/employers from companies that come to the school to look for grads, a 70-90% graduate employment rate and a whole bunch of other really over-the-top gurantees?!, if so, stay away from it
    7)Does the school have multiple "campuses" spread out all over the country?if so, stay away from it
    8)Is the school on the third floor of a scummy building? if so, stay away from it
    9)Does the school seem to change names every couple of years? If so, stay away from it
    10)Does the school go through a constant change of instructors and management? If so, stay away from it
    11)Does the school employ ex-grads as teachers?, if so, stay away from it
    12)DO they advertise on tv, have a 1-800 number and do they have glossy print ads? If so, stay away from it
    -If I wouldve had a list similar to this before I enrolled in that institution, I wouldve thought twice about making said decision

    Just because a business calls itself a "university" does not mean it is a UNIVERSITY, and their "diplomaz" are not really DIPLOMAS...get my drift...of should I say, Get my Drift...bro?
    Bottom line:DO YOUR RESEARCH!!
