Everest College, Santa AnaIncompentency

This school targets the minimally educated, low-income student who chooses a school depending on how easy it is to obtain Financial Aid. Most students have learning disabilities which have steered them away from traditional college. These students are being set up for failure in the "real working world" as they are "pushed" through this school with an easy "A". It is nearly impossible for a student to fail, even though they may be told they will, they will only be forced to continue attending (while financial aid is charged over and over) until the student finally meets the very very low requirements (of attendance) or drops. Once the student graduates, the majority will soon realize that they will not be able to secure employment since they are missing key components of hire-ability. Most employers do not hire everests students because of the poor quality of education and poor skills/ presentation of the applicant/student. This is a school that only cares about your money (or the governments money). Once the money is secured, they only thing Everest cares about is not letting you drop until they secure the full amount of your tuition. It doesn't matter if you are sick or dying or have a drug or alcohol problem, no one leaves Everest. No one in management knows whats going on and no one cares. Once you graduate and find that you can't get a job in your field, you will get pissed, want to file a class action lawsuit (with your fellow students against Everest since most of you are not working in the field) and you will be saving your paychecks from Safeway to pay off your massive student loans which have now accumulated enormous interest..a loan that will follow you for the rest of your life.

This decision could ruin your it has ruined the life of many. There are actual attorneys that focus their business on filing lawsuits against colleges like Everest, that is how corrupt this school is.
Everest will only last another 5 or 7 years or so..they are already suffering financially and the schools forecasted to open have been slashed to 1/4 for this year. Close them sooner by boycotting them.
Put your money into traditional community colleges. You can get financial aid there, tutoring by real tutors, attention from people who care, counseling by teachers with Masters Degrees..any vocational program that you are taking at any FOR PROFIT college can be taken at community college for 1/10th of the tuition. Do yourself a favor - I wish I someone had told me this soon.

    Let me guess, you couldnt keep up with the education, or didnt attend faithfully, Or, failed to complete your homework. OR, maybe you were dismissed from the program for your attitude. I too am an Everest College Graduate, and I am currently working in a Hospital, and climbing the corporate ladder. Its ME that did it, with the HELP of a diploma to get my foot in the door, Cause without it, I wouldn't have even gotten the interview. So, maybe you should not bash the school, but fix your OWN issues. Good luck in your future. :)

    I'm sorry you had to learn all this the hard way, but you sound like an intelligent woman who has all of the qualities you need to get where you want in life once you get on the right track and with the right people.

    However, Everest and ### like it will always be around. Everest used to be Bryman, and before that it was something else. Every time its sleazy reputation finally gets the best of it, it'll change its name yet again.

    You want a rude awakening, check this site alone, much less the entire Internet, for Everest (enter it in the search without the Santa Ana part; you'll see all of the complaints that way).

    I worked in the medical field for many years, and most high-quality, ethical practices would literally rather hire someone right off the street with zero education than one from Bryman, that's how awful it is.

    Best of luck with your future, and please, always, always, ALWAYS check out any school, company, agency, etc. before signing your name or committing your money. Same with buying a car (or hopefully a home one day), accepting a job, etc.
    Google the organization with terms like fraud, or lawsuit, or scam, or complaints.
