Harris School of Business Reviews
Graduated a few years ago and if you're reading this here's the breakdown. Some of the teachers (back then) are great but the education you get there is very basic. You do not get credit for any of the classes you take. You can take a full accredited program at MCCC which is down the block and it will cost you less than Harris. The only thing I got out of this school is phlebotomy. They tell you that you can make $19 per hour as an MA which is false, you start off at $12 and after 20 years maybe you will make $19. You may be able to get a job but for the price they charge for a certification it is not worth it. Instead try looking at MCCC or other accredited schools that you can actually use in the future if you plan on becoming something worthwhile (like St. Francis school of nursing). Don't rush into things until you do your research, I wasted $11,000 on this program and could not get a decent job for more then $13.50 per hour.
Currently attending this school and it SUCKS. Their definitely is a shortage of the amount of teachers that actually know what they are doing. If you get Mrs.Tarlboro/Mrs.Viv RUN. She is a cool person but she does not know how to teach. She puts words on the board, tells you to define them and that's going to be the test, meanwhile their is only 31 words on the board and apparently 50 questions. And when you ask about the rest of the stuff either she ignores you, or says don't worry about it. I'm pretty sure I should be worried about it especially if this is my future. One full class of her phlebotomy failed and her current class is failing all tests because they aren't learning anything. (She teaches you to draw blood with you non dominant hand) explanation enough....... When anyone goes to higher ups about her they won't do shit..... And this is not the only teacher like this....... Run for the hills
This is a joke, very unorganized, unprofessional, rude, ghetto! This is such as waste of money, the staff is so unprofessional, how can they lead by example? I am kicking myself for this bs program, this is full of the lowest of lowest class of people I have ever met. Linwood, nj thank you for robbing me.
I started this program in July of 2014 I wish I didn't. The place is unorganized, the so called teachers don't know what their are talking about half the time. I did not get my books until the second week of class, in lab we never have the things we need. THEY WILL LIE TO YOU SO THEY CAN GET YOUR MONEY WHEN YOU FIRST COMEIN.NOTHING THEY SAY ISTHE TRUTH
This place was not worth it... total joke learned nothing... feels like in a prision... school is not even worth one star.
I attended the Wilmington, DE campus and let me tell you that if I could go back in time, I would have chosen a totally different school to attend! The entire staff, whether they were instructors or not, were rude possessed the lack of knowledge when it came to financial aide, programs, scheduling, etc. They allowed me to attend school with the sense that my financial aide was handled, but in reality it WAS NOT!! They NEVER helped me find an internship and about a month later I found one on my own. After I completed my internship, I couldn't even get hired b/c I was NEVER informed that since I couldn't get a job in the state I worked in, MD, b/c I attended a school in DE. Not only that the school NEVER kept up with their records. They tried to fail me b/c I "Didn't complete" my internship and tried to send me 3 1/2-4hrs to Newark, NJ to complete it. They also promised to help me find employment. After 6yrs of calling and harassing b/c no one will hire students from that school I'm still waiting for help!
Cherryhill, NJ Harris School of Business is defiantly a good choice. My instructors have been very helpful and caring and the staff well they are very informative and they know you and always put a pleasant personal greeting as they pass you in the hall. One downfall is SOME enroll just to go whenever they want and make it seem as if the school is bad however that is far from the truth maybe if they apply themselves 4 days a week instead of 1 day a week and miss the other 3 days they will benefit from the program offered. I say its only a few who like to play the foul card and thats because its obvious they can not apply themselves to what they signed up for so those few are the only ones who will not make it in the school or a place of employment. YOU!! have to treat this school as a job because it is IT IS your first step towards the medical field and patients will not wait on those who think time is at their leasure. For the most part those who are there taking this carreer choice serious are extremly helpful, friendly and will always greet you in a pleasant way. I have had a great time so far and I am looking forward to graduating in 2015. So approach this positive and Harris will give you the tools to success. Cherryhill Harris is a good start and its up to you to absorb it all and direct it towards your future. I read some of these reviews and everyone is entitled to their opinions but honestly most are from those who could not handle their choice like an adult. staff is wonderful students are amazing and the instructors are your key to the future and they will always be there for you.
I just recently started Harris in July. My first MOD was the best. Some work was difficult but the teachers who taught the class made sure everyone understood. Second MOD I had a previous teacher so i knew what to expect, the other class we had a new teacher and it was HORRIBLE !!! All they did was preach to the class about how we needed to act like adults and this and that when the teacher was the o e causing the most drama. Not only did we not learn anything helpful, we the class got talked to like we were a bunch of kids all MOD. Not only did the teacher disrespect us as adults she disrespected us as humans as well. She did not have any problems talking about our religion views, our personal life, etc. If a student tried to speak she would have a problem about that, if we chewed gum that was a problem, if we laughed that was a problem, if we breathed to loud that was a problem. But did I forget to mention this was a typing class !!! I just hope our next MOD is not this intense, I came to learn an education as an adult not be belittled or treated like a child.
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!! I am currently going there now and let me tell you I regret ever even coming here. I gave these motherfuckers over 14,000 dollars in loans and grants and still have to pay 8,000 dollars back after I graduate. Mind you you only get one uniform yes one uniform and my books came a week late from the first day. The school is so fucking ratchet it's just full of welfare mom's whoneed time so they can keep tthey're cash benefits and foodstamp benefits on. Please I am telling you personally do not go to this school unless you want to waste your time and your money go somewhere else don't be a fool like meand give these people your money because the only one that loses in the end is you.
I went for orientation on July 14th 2014 and I was disgusted I will not pay over 17,000 for a school who wants to give you one set of scrubs and you only get that one after you start attendingI was promised things in the beginning and when I approached them about it yesterday now they have to check into it.. well huge red flag!! why do they not have supplies on hand for students for the amount of money that they charge they should have the supplies on why do students have to wait I am NOT going to go to the school and I highly recommend no one at end of school this is absolutely a disgrace the staff look like they rolled out of a pure trailer park so unprofessional and all they're doing is selling themselves might as well be on a corner staff members because I will not be attending your school I could not believe how disgraceful this business is and how they can be allowed to be in this on just absolutely disgusting
