Career Point College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (62)
Please save yourselves and do it through a 2yr college. Only one or two instructors are great the others not so much. All the office staff have really bad attitude problems especially the one that runs the whole program. She is just awful! Very poorly organized! No jobs consider the graduates from this school as qualified. U will have a hard time finding a job! They help by referring you to jobs that require experience which being a new grad you do not have! So much lacking education wise. And over your head in debt. Honestly...biggest mistake of my life. :(
I'M STILL HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING A JOB FOR MY CAREER, AND OWN LIKE OVER 12,000 FROM MEDICAL ASSISTANT, HAVE LOTS OF FRIENDS THAT DON'T HAVE JOBS!! IT JUST RIDICULOUS HOW THEY BUG YOU ABOUT MONEY AND CAN'T GET ME A JOB!! AND THE TEACHERS TALK MORE THAN TEACH GOOD LOOK IF YOU GO THEY CHARGE A LOT OF INTEREST AND IF YOU GET A REGULAR JOB THEY THREATEN TO TAKE MONEY OUT OF YOUR CHECK!!
I loved this school! From the teachers, to the other students, it was a great experience. I loved how the program let me go at my own pace. There were a few classes that were quicker than others, but I loved all of them. Especially the medical coding! Even though I have my medical assisting degree, I plan on contiuning to get an education. I'm just not sure where I'm getting my degree. Several students are getting their Medical Billing and Coding degrees at different schools. If they ever offer the LPN program, I plan on going again to get it. I would LOVE for them to have a LPN to RN bridge program as well. Thanks Career Point!
So I just graduated from cp my experience was so awful I just prayed I could get out of there quick and put the whole experience behind me. Why didnt I get out you ask? They actually collect most or all of your loan before youve even completed a month. So when you start to realize you made a huge mistake, its too late. Your basically at their mercy.
The classes are very hard to focus in due to loud obnoxious students. The instructors are disrespected, overworked, burnt out, and so scatter brained mistakes are made often at the expense of the students. This explains why there is such a high turnover for all positions at the school except for the three stooges that run the place because they are all very close or related. Well its actually four of them.
The school is often understaffed and when such is the case, they have un qualified teachers teaching subjects they have no knowledge of. Classes basicly consist of an instructor who cannot lecture or teach because they are so busy processing students in or out of the class everyday so basically you get books and packets of work and little to no instruction. Alot of times they dont even grade your work because I did an assignment and was unsure of a couple of questions I was sure I got wrong, when I guestioned it, they were wrong but my grade didnt reflect it.
It goes around the school all the time students telling others just write whatever, they dont actually grade the work. Theres so many other things I could go on forever, thankfully I was able to find work because of an associates degree I acquired before the cp nightmare. You do not in anyway get what u pay for here. Oh and all the comments on here are posted by cp staff, but anyone with any common sense could see that. No one actually loves the school so that alone should be a dead give away, I went there for a year EVEYONE I knew at the school was regretting it.
Oh on a side note if you have already gone there and they screwed you, all you have to do is NOT sign a forbearance, thats how they stay in buisness, the government watches how many students default and thats how they can shut them down. The problem is, they hunt students down to sign it and they are in the clear while you get screwed. Make them help u find a job before you sign that thing. Or dont sign it. Either way ur screwed and in default, dont let them talk you into saving their own butts, it will take years before the government comes after you for the money it only takes one year for cp to hide all the defaults on their record and they continue on screwing ppl. Thats why they hunt cp students so aggressively to save their butts from getting shut down.
I am getting ready to graduate and the year and a half I have been here, iv'e loved every minute of it. The instructors are great and the deans are always there to help you. I feel like I am fully prepared to experience putting my training to work. Take my word, I loved the training I received at Career Point!
Im not gonna sit here and argue with all these coments. Instead im just gonna say that im grateful to career point. I dont know where i would be with out the experience i got there. I can now say proudly that i did something in my life that actually paid off. I can single handedly support my familly without having to send my pregnant wife out to work just to pay the bills. I apreciate what this school has done for me.
I dont know what school the other people went to, but my experience at career point was completely different. First off, the school is not all runned down as the previous person described it.
I constantly see the maintanance working on projects here and there, retouching a wall with a fresh coat of paint, fixing anyting that needs attention. Oh, and the vending machines are there. If you miss them, you may need to go get your eyes checked out. Besides, i dont know why anyone would rate a school on vending machines.
Most of the coomputers have windows xp. The only ones that have windows 2000 are the ones in the typing class. But who would need more to type, its not like your gonna be typing at 3000 words per minute. As far as the free laptops go, you have to be enrolled in the associates program, and in the online program. You cant just walk up to your teacher and request a laptop, everyone is gonna laugh at you. What i see here is just negligence.
One person somehow managed to miss everyting, and is now venting with a review. And please take pride in what you do, self pitty will get you nowhere.....Fast!
First off I would like to thank Career Point for helping me be the first in my family to graduate from college and set a great example for my kids. I started off in the IT program about couple years ago and not only have I found a job in something interesting and that I have a passion for, I now also gain the ability to take My A+ certification and diploma anywhere, and have tons of options and roads to pursue in my skills area. Let me just add I think this is a great school for someone like myself with kids and want to be able to do something thats going to be around for a long time.
I was interested in the LVN part time program & scheduled an appt to speak to someone.I spoke to a young lady.I was only there for information but was told before I could get any I had to take their test. took the test & passed,after about an hour I still didn't have any info.
I asked 3 different people there what the price of the program was & all of them said the same thing we can't tell you because everyone qualifies for different things.I think they are all trained to say this because I couldn't understand what the big secret was.I also wanted to know how often classes started & was told that there is no way of knowing until they start again but I already knew the next class was to start in Jan.2011
About an hour & a half later I still didn't have all the info I needed but they said I needed to return for the LVN entrance exam.After a few days of thinking about it I decided this the worst school I hade ever gone to,they are not organized,lied in my face & I knew it so she called me to remind me of my exam date I told her that I decided that I'm not going to this school she said"uugh" & hung up on me.
After having a bad impression from my information appt.I just felt like this was not the school for me.I have since toured Galen nursing school & just fell in love w/it.My tour guide& info person gave me all the info I needed the price.it was just an awsome experience.I've decided to take my entrance test July 17 because I know this is were I'll be going.
This school is a good jump start for all of those who have commitments in their lives already. The instructors knowledge is vast, and the students are very welcoming. Its been a very good experience, and i would encourage anyone to give it a shot.
