This is a technical school, you should pretty much know what you're getting yourself into when you sign on. Most technical schools are overpriced and the "instructors" that are hired on have little to no teaching experience, let alone have teaching certification. You are "taught" the basics, and you really learn the field through your one month or 160hr internship.

This isn't high school, you can't expect things to be handed to you. You have to take initiative! There were times when I went to school, and felt like I was in a daycare. I was one of the younger students in my class, and had more sense than people in there that were twice my age.

I attended Everest for dental assisting a little over a year ago and found employment not long after I finished. But I did deal with lots of rejection because of my association with the school.

Was I ill-prepared? No, because I took initiative to learn. We had an intern in the office I work at a few months ago who did a dental assisting program through a nearby community college. She paid thousands less, but knew absolutely NOTHING! All she did was bookwork, no hands on training whatsoever!

Would I recommend Everest? Yes, but to someone who is going in knowing that you are really going to have to work hard for yourself and make the best out of whatever is given to you (call it settling if you want to), but if you're lazy and expect things to be handed to you. ABSOLUTELY NOT!

But not from Everest! Experience has shown me the majority of the graduated students are not well prepared. This is not to say all students weren't capable. They were few and far between though. I do not have the time or financial resources to interview, do a pre-employment check, hire and train a new employee for a month only to find out they are incompetent. Sorry, but this school has the reputation of being a diploma factory. Good Luck to you if you attend there because it's doubtful you will find gainful employment in your field any time soon.

Honestly i don't even know why i wasted my money going to that school.Here home with 2 kids and still paying back them stupid loans . They make those stupid commercials interesting for a reason ,they wanna make u believe they are a good choice.

Honestly these dumb 9 months programs are a waste of money better of going to a real college.Instead of changing my life it left me with a huge bill. They don't really help u find jobs either. Plus i graduated in 2008 and is 2010 and i still have no job.

I went on 2 interviews for the Decatur campus and after reading these reviews i believe my instincts were right. While on one the interview, the recruiter whsipered under her breath that I was too "uppity". Now, for someone who is trying to bring business into the school, approximately $28,000.00, that was a stupid and unprofessional thing to say. If you were trying to bring in a paying customer worth $28,000.00 in business to your school, would you insult the customer? I think not. I figured if the administrative staff was that ignorant then how ignorant and unprofessional would the instructors be. On the second interview I was attempting to apply for a loan while the financial aid rep was busy playing around and partying with the rest of the staff while I prayed she did not make a mistake on the application. Since then I have decided to go to a college and after reading these reviews, I am so glad I changed my mind.

I finished my dental assisting extern over a month ago. When i went to pay my remaining balance of $60 and pick up my diploma i was told i have to pay an additional $120 because a payment from the state didnt come thru. but they were supposed to tell my this during my last mod of class and didnt. So until i can come up with the money i cant graduate. The school lacked the necessary supplies we needed to learn effectively. We couldnt keep a teacher. now my job search is horrible because they dont certify u in xrays so i have to pay $300 for that class in order to have a chance for employment. It was horrible. I wouldnt recommend this school to my worse enemy.

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.
