I made the mistake of asking for information as I wanted to learn something new. They call me EVERY day...I asked them not to. They refuse to send literature (big red flag here for SCAM) but want you to come into the office to "discuss" it.

That way they can pressure you into signing papers. I didn't go and am not interested but they refuse to stop calling me. Stay away from this place...they are only out to get your money...

Anthem is it the business only to make money. I know a couple people who went to the school when it was Chubb and it was very respected for teaching programming.

OK, let's be real honest. The school is bad. But why? The first thing that you need to do is to read the postings on this page. Your fellow students are morons. They can't read well enough to understand the material, and they can't write or spell. I already had a college degree and was going there to make a career change. I would have been better attending a community college because then I would actually have credits that transferred and had gone to a real school.

Anthem is probably no worse that DeVry, which is the national joke of schools. And you won't get stabbed by your fellow students like some of the inner-city schools that are there again only to make money. Bottom line: Anthem doesn't pay their instructors much, so they don't attract good teachers. The administration is not interested in education, only in the school as a business.

It's EASY to point fingers when you fail.I did the 9 months for Medical Assitant training,My instructor truly care she invited us to come in on saturdays for workshops, they helped me with my resume , my cover letter(RAUL)and help me find PT work while i attended,i got the skills & knowledge i needed to pass the NATIONAL certification exam(tested at the Jersey city location)

now i work in the medical field as a RMA and im in nursing school . If you cross your arms for 9 months and expect others to do what YOU need to do .DON'T point fingers when reality hits you.. the problem is NOT the school the problem is YOU!! i know because i was i class with people like you.

THIS TRAINING WILL HELP IF YOU ARE WILLING TO RECIEVE IT !!!

I couldn't stop laughing when I saw what the last review said. You absolutely can sit and take your CMA test when you graduate from Anthem in Cherry Hill, I just took it!! And in reference to credits being transferred, I work for Cooper Health Systems making $15/hr and they are already paying for me to go to whatever nursing school I want. So don't listen to some of these negative people, it could easily have been a person in my class who just didn't make the most out of it. If you put time and effort in here, it will pay off. I could not be happier with my results after graduation!!

This school is a lie. Program is only 4 weeks per one class then you move on to another one. They make you think that you will be able to sit for the CMA exam which is not true because they aren't accredited by CAAHEP or ABHES which is what you need to be allowed to take it. They also never found me an externship site, but it doesn't matter since 6 weeks of experience didn't get anyone that went there with me a job. What they dont tell you either is that the average salary for being an MA is $9-11/hr which is what I made at a job I already had.

They also don't tell you that MA jobs are near impossible to get nowadays since there are so many school churning them out. Couple that with Private doctor offices closing left and right and you will never be able to get a job doing this! There credits don't transfer so I have to start from scratch if I want to be a nurse.

All in all a waste of $12,000!!!

I went to anthem..it wasnt that bad of a school in the beginning we had a great teacher, but some of the material was basically spoon fed to you, then corp changed everything around and some of the students didnt really like that..I know some of the students were told different things,but my cousler never told me anything that wasnt a suprise..right now im at my intership and I love it. You have to work hard for what you want. But i can say now the new teacher that the students have isnt very promising, he doesnt follow the notes the manger gives him and he always goes off topic.

Response to Barbie: 1) When it comes to credits one of the first things in the paperwork you sign says credits will most likely not transfer. That is up to the college you are going to. Not the school you went to. 2) Everything IS included in the tuition if you read your paperwork. Cherry Hill actually offer the MA cert at it's campus and was very helpful with everything I needed to obtain it. MY admissions person was very helpful and honest about this process. 3) The Cherry Hill campus not only set me up on my first interview but several after and still keeps in touch to see if I need any other assistance. And to anyone else who is complaining on here and says that this is a scam, I would not be where I am today if it were not for this school. I know a lot of people that feel the same way. So to any future students looking at this to help them with their decision, do not let a handful of unhappy students change your mind if you are serious about your education.

I graduated from the Computer Networking program in Cherry Hill and I am already a manager for HR Block. They allowed me to hire a few people under me, and i recruited them from Anthem as well. If it weren't for this course I would still be sitting home on unemployment, but now i make $40K+ a year. I really can't speak to north brunswick but the cherry hill campus is awesome. If you put the time and effort in here you can definitely be successful. So anyone looking at anthem do not base your decision off 2 disgruntled people. I know PLENTY of happy graduates who appreciate what the Anthem Institute has done for them.

A total scam! Total Scam ! I was told that the school was accredited and I could transfer my credits to any college. That was the 1st lie. I was also told that they place you on your first interview for a job. That was 2nd lie. I was told that everything was included in the tuition. Thats was the 3rd lie. Now that was three strikes with me. Credits are not transferable, there is no job placement, and certifications have to be paid for by your self after you locate the sites to take the test on your own.....I got great grades mostly A's but really didn't benefit from it. All in all if your going to school medical assisting, please just consisder taking it at the Community College cause they offer it, and less expensive.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, TAKE MY WORD FOR THIS AND DO NOT GO TO THE ANTHEM INSTITUTE IN NORTH BRUNSWICK! this "school" was the worst decsision i have ever made in my life. Every single teacher in that so called school has no idea how to run a class. every class we sit for 3-4 hours doing absolutly nothing!!!!!! I would drive over and hour every single morning to leaern about my feild of study to instead sit on the internet and look at pointless stuff. i wasted a whole year of my life at anthem, i thought about dropping out numerous times but couldnt see wasting money. PLEASE PLEASE LISTEN, ANTHEM IS A SCAM! ALL THERE ADMISSIONS PPL WORK ON A QUOTA AND WILL GET ANYONE INTO THE SCHOOL. THEY PLAY T OFF GOOD!! this school should be shut out of commision and never be aloud to ruin students life. Anthem is the biggest regret i have in life, i hope every teacher there understands that there LOSERS!!!! AND HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE ON HOW TO TEACH A STUDENT.
