It's unfortunate to say, but the school's agenda (at least mine in Aurora, Colorado) reads nothing but "SCAM".
I enrolled in the school approximately three years ago, finished with the "in-class" portion of my education a little over a year ago, and have been waiting for an externship site since then. You see, the school will not allow you to find your own site, so you are forced to wait. Wait, and wait, and wait. The program I was enrolled in, Surgical Technology, is priced a bit over $33,000 and the waiting has forced me to have to start paying student loans, and those same loans to start building interest. I'm not only deeply in debt, but I'm deeply in a growing debt with no career path.
I should add that I am no where near a poor student. In most courses I have placed higher than all past students, so naturally a 4.0 GPA. I have received high praise from four different instructors, and I am even a Student Ambassador (I suppose you could call this position the "Honor Roll" of Anthem College).
I have been calling the school regularly, but the persons responsible for continuing the last part of my education have begun completely ignoring phone calls and e-mails. From what I understand, I am not the first this has happened to--just the first to be vocal about it.
I will likely have to collect information from past and current students, and see about hiring a lawyer to form a class-action lawsuit. This is not the path I want to go down, but I think it's the one I need to take--Anthem College put me in this position.
I wholly wish everyone who may have read this the best, and hope you do not decide to make Anthem your choice in education. This school is a trap, and you will be all the worse for making the decision to enroll.
