Star Technical Institute / Rip off/scam
Went to the school through the surgical tech program. Most of our nights there were spent sitting in the classroom looking at the wall while one person at a time went and did practice procedures on a dummy that was so worn out and beat up. You would think 14, 000 could at least buy some good equipment to work with though we were always told new ones were coming soon...never happened. I asked countless times if we were learning enough to prepare us for the operating room because it felt like we were not learning all that much. I was told we would be fine and that we had the information we needed. Wrong. The school did not prepare us at all for what we encountered on our extern. I keep in touch with many from my class (who still have no jobs in the field) and they all feel the same. For paying 14, 000 out of pocket, I never felt so ripped off in all my life. Waste of my time and money. I should have known something was up when one of the women that works for the place was talking to our class and she stressed that we not bad mouth the school. Alarm bells should have went off then. You blow 14, 000 on a crap product and tell me if you will keep your mouth shut.
