I went to Everest and I still can't find a job. I am here sitting at home and I am not doing anything. WHY! Because I can't find a job. Everest does not offer any help and they don't care about you. The teachers there are a joke. They don't teach. If you happen to find a job you will be making very little money. You will make about 7-10 dollars on hr. Which is nothing!! They don't even care about the students. I am not happy at all. I only had one interview in a whole month. I applied in 20 different places. And still no response. Everest will tell you how you should go out there and look for a job. But they will not go and call you and tell you where the jobs are at! or what places to go to. Right now I will probably have to go and work a regular job. That's my story! Please if you happen to read this it will safe you time and money. But just don't go there! Everest Needs to CLOSED DOWN !!

First off let me start off by saying that I'm a former student of Everest. I went to the Paralegal program and graduated with an Associates degree. It cost me $28,000 dollars to go to this school. So the person that said it doesn't cost that much you are wrong!! My school payments were 500 a month and I got them lowered to 300 a month thank goodness. Also the same person said that the teachers who teach the MA program have to have an RN or LPN degree, I don't know who told you that but you are wrong. How do I know that? My best friend is a Medical Assistant and she taught the MA program at Everest. She did not have a degree as an LPN or RN!! As for me, I was on the Dean's list the whole two years I was at Everest. I don't have tattoos and piercings all over my body. I worked very hard and studied very hard to earn my degree only to be VERY disappointed. Once I graduated it took me awhile to find a job. Every interview I went to wanted to pay me $9.00 an hour!! I have a degree and if I wanted to make close to minimum wage I would work at a fast food place. I'm now going back to a local commnity college to start all over and get my Bachelor's degree. Thank goodness I work for a family owned business so I can pay for my loans and afford to live. $9.00 an hour is a slap in the face when I have to pay $28,000.00 dollars in loans.I also did lots of research on Paralegal jobs and the outlook was well and the pay was decent, boy was I wrong. To everyone who thinks this school is good it's probably because you got grants and don't have to pay any money out of your pocket. Anyone else who is considering on going to Everest don't go there.

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
