The first day that i called to register in the M.A program they called me back like 100 times, it was ridiculous. Later i changed my mind about coming to this school.

In the state of Michigan you are required to attend an ADA accredited program to take the state board testing to become a Certified Dental Assistant. The Everest Institute does NOT offer an ADA accredited program. This means that if you attend this program, you will NOT be able to be certified in the state of Michigan as a Dental Assistant. I do not have any information on the other programs, but for $15,000, I would find this a great waste of time and money if I were expecting to work in Michigan after graduating.

I took massage therapy at NIT which is now Everst. It was a waste of my time and money. The insturtor was not helpful at all. She told the class to read the chapter and answer the questions. There was no lecture time. I graduated in 2006 and I am still looking to take my national certification exam but feel like I was not properly trained. Now I am in debt pretty badly. PLEASE THINK TWICE ABOUT GOING TO THIS SCHOOL.

you teach yourself. the teachers all hate the school the staff are okay but they dont push for change. they let the school go down the drain while they waste your hard earned cash on stupid little meetings parties and promotional perks instead of working on education. ITS A WASTE OF TIME. WERE DEBATING TAKING THEM TO COURT FOR FALSE ADVERTISING. i have yet to get ANY certifications and im three weeks from graduating. its not worth it.

I am in the Pharm. Tech. program here in MI and can't believe what I'm reading. Everest has and is preparing me to work in every kind of Pharmacy. My instructor has 12+ yrs in the field, and still manages to work once a week to this day. She was also named Best Pharmacy Tech within her Facility, which is Henry Ford Hospital main campus. Her knowledge and expirience in the field are all mine for the taking. I dream of questions to ask. I am an Ambassador and have been on the Presidents list since my first MOD. Believe me this was and still is a challenge.I also Homeschool my 15 yo son. Studying is a must. There are no if's and's or but's about it. There are nights when I fall asleep studying. I do this because I want to know my field inside and out. You cant excpect to enroll in an accelerated course and breeze by. It doesn't work that way, LIFE doesn't work like that. I researched my field, the school, and my instructor before I enrolled. This isn't high school. If what you want is an education by expirienced knowledgable instructors Everest is for you. Everyone isnt cut out for this type of eductional structure. By this I mean one that requires you to multi task, take intitiative, and except nothing less than Excellence. If it wasn't for you, it's because you weren't FOR yourself. You have to want it! Want it bad enought to stay at home and study when everyone wants you to do anything but. Enough to get up an extra hour early so you can study because this might be the only time you can get the silence you need to do so. The school has everything you need to become the top in your field. What you do with it is solely up to you. If your the type to drop out,Everest isnt for you. If your just going to make whomever shut up,Everest isnt for you. If you think you'll be able to cheat your way through Everest isn't for you. If you are inflexible, Everest isn't for you. If you hate tests, Everest definatly isn't for you. We have a test every Monday and Thursday,and finals once a month. I strongly recommend Everest if what you want is to change your life because it's already changing mine. Not for the better but for the Best!

I finished and graduated from everest in 2007, i was an ambassador, and thought that everything would go perfect after that... I was wrong! Now I'm in debt so deep u can literally dive in it, and now i wish i never went there.. so my advice is think twice

I've read every one of these reviews and am honestly shocked that there are so few recommending the school. Then I remember all those people who dropped out of class half-way through their first month. I personally believe you need to do your fare share of research on the school you are going and more importantly which field. I chose medical assisting because right now, the medical field is BOOMING anywhere you go! I attend the Kalamazoo Institute in Michigan and I couldn't have made a better choice. I have an amazing teacher who knows her stuff and genuinely look forward to going to school. I put forth the time and effort though! This crap about this person with a gpa of 3.5 is crap, everest doesn't do their gpa's like that. The crap about having unqualified teachers, is just that, more crap! If you look at a job add for everest it says that you must have 3 years experience in the field! On to MY experience at everest. Have I seen trashy people who have no business there? ABSOLUTELY! Are the majority of students foul mouthed, inappropriate and unprofessional? ABSOLUTELY! However, it is all about YOUR willingness. If you give up half way into your first mod you have NOBODY to blame but yourself! If YOU put the effort into learning what is in your text books and STUDYING the appropriate material then you WILL go somewhere. I am in my 6th mod, I am an ambassador, and I have a wonderful class of peers who all look forward to going to class and learning. Its how YOU make it.

I started attending Everest for Dental Assisting in July 2009. I really was excited when I went in, took a tour, and got signed up. Wow, did that take a turn for the worst. I was there for a month (I think I gave it a fair chance, and a fair amount of loan money..) and for the majority of class I sat. Yes, simply sat there. I finished my work within an hour of getting there and the teacher barely was in the room - unless there was a hands-on activity.

I felt cheated and lied, and I made the decision to withdraw and pay the $2,500 to get out of there. I'm now attending a REAL college and am much better off. Please reconsider before going to this school.

I was a student at Everest in Gahanna Ohio for MA, I was also 5 months pregnant. Through the course I had to leave twice because of complications with my pregnancy. I had a 3.4, went everyday, did all of my work and was very excited to graduate and stat my career, however they had a different plan in mind. When I tried to return to school they would not allow to come back at all.

They said I with-drew too many times!!!! I was about sick to my stomach, because they still want me to pay for my schooling!! Please do yourself a favor and do research on fly by night schools. If it sounds too good to be true it usually is. Good Luck out there!
