Harris School of Business Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (50)
This school is out of hand the first day I went someone was smoking weed in the bathroom and the some of turned staff are very ghetto. The security people let people get away with anything. There was also a fight the first day I went there.
I went to Harris school in 2007. I went to the Harris school in Wilmington Delaware. This was the worst school. They pretty much accept anyone, welfare moms who don't want to work but have to either work or go to school/training program. The teachers are very rude also with very limited teaching experience. We never got uniforms, or stethoscopes. But we were never reimbursed for this we still owe the same amount of loan. I wish there was a way to have this loan forgiven cause I could have spent $8,000 going to a real school or community college.
I seriously can't believe I almost went to that school can't believe that they didn't give me copies of none of the papers I signed. Thank god I was smart enough to tell them to cancel me. The dude was basically making me pick what I should study I really wanted to go for medical coding but he told me what he thought I want it. They really make u think they care but all they care about is money. & that's all there is. I seen half of the students were talking nonsense in the classrooms. The teachers weren't even teaching. It's super ghetto there I wouldn't even try to step a foot their.
This school is the absolute worst!! Well I am sure there are others but so far for me this is the worst!!! My class and I sat in a room by ourselves on several different occasions with out an instructor maybe totaling a whole month worth of time if we add it all up. They sign you up and dotn even give you any papers of what you have signed ( what kind of mess is that and shame on me for not even asking) HINT HINT that's when I should have known things were wrong there. The instructors they hire are only there to get a check ( In that case they should have hired me to be an instructor ) one teacher I had was only worried about getting home to her husband and let the class know she had food stamps etc, hello we are in cherry hill a nice area and then we are trying to learn and they only thing we get is look at my pedicure, highlight this highlight that, and I have food stamps but drive a benz!! Now lets give a round of applause to that broad and just give her teacher of the year right. Ohh and lets see lets nor forget the 2 head women of the lovely (sarcastic) Cherry Hill campus. The 2 ladies whom have no idea what they are doing while one is trying to be a spy and searching for money to come in the other once is too busy asking the students ridiculous and inappropriate questions. It is very sad to say that there are only about maybe 2 DECENT teachers in the school. There is no reason why every time I ask an instructor something they say they don't know, the list can go n and on about this piece of shit nothing but a scam of a school which I will get to the bottom of how to get my money back from these bastards waste of a time school but it is sad how they can just sit and take the money of these people knowing how unorganized and full of crap they are! Ohh wait and the best part is for some reason there is a large majority of students whom think they are done with hours and then they suddenly have more hours to make up which I pretty much think is nothing but a scam for extra checks as while your on your intern your still enrolled in school so those bastards are still getting checks!!! SMFH the school is nothing but a scam!!!! PLEASE JUST RUN AWAY AND DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT OR GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT TO GO TO HARRIS!!!
This place is the biggest joke of a school ever. Out of the 4 teachers I've had so far 2 were a disgrace. You practically have to teach yourself. If you have Ms Woodard RUN!!!!! She only leaves you confused and dazed. It's obvious she has no clue as to what she is teaching or talking about. And regardless of the number of complaints they get on her they won't get rid of her because there are no other teachers out there who want to deal w Harris because of how disorganized the entire administration is. Save yourself.
THIS IS THE WORST IDEA EVER!!!!! PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS INSTITUTION. THEY MAKE YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOU CAREER.. BUT IN REALITY THE DONT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU. ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY. TEACHERS ARE OK (SOME)BUT MANAGEMENT IS TERRIBLE. OUR CLASS WAS WITHOUT TEACHER FOR 2 WHOLE WEEKD BC SEH/HE WAS ON VACATIONS AND THE DIRECTOR DIDN'T GIVE A CRAP IN FINDING A REPLACENT. ADDING MORE CRAP TO THIS IS THE FACT THAT SOME OF US DIDN'T PASS THE CLASS (ARE YOU SERIOUS?) PLEASE STAY AWAY
I was so excited about attending Harris and becoming a certified Medical Assistant. The first Mod was good, then it all went down hill. We had a person in the class who had kidnapping charges and other felony's on his/her record, and caused a lot of trouble with the class. Then, the second MOD was a pure nightmare. We did not get the books for our A & P and Medical Terminology classes until the last day of our third week. For most of us it was very difficult to learn, but that was not the biggest problem, the biggest problem was there was so much b@tching about the books, that we did not get anything out of our classes. After, hearing about all of the negative things about the school, (I still tried to keep a positive outlook), I started researching and found that I could attend a community college and receive an associates degree for only $5,000 less than I am paying Harris for a certification. I have meant the most interesting people in while attending Harris and the instructors are great, but they are not trained instructors (and they were not happy and let it be known). So, I would not recommend Harris, just because if you really want to be successful, you need to be able to learn and practice what you are suppose to be learning and not being distracted by all of the negativity.
Have big dreams? Want to advance your career and make more money? Read all of the BAD REVIEWS before you incur almost $14,000 in debt. The cost for this so-called "school" isn't justified. You may get a $5,500 grant & wind up paying back the rest + interest for a career you may never have as the quality of the education you get here (where most of the teachers have admitted to "hating" school and not doing well even in high school).
I'm disclosing the cost of the programs since you won't get anyone to reveal it over the phone. There isn't enough room here to list the MANY COMPLAINTS I have about this place. This Harris is located in upscale Cherry Hill, yet you'll feel you're in the GHETTO whenever you enter the halls or classrooms. Oh and watch that you don't trip over all of the STUDENTS SITTING ON THE FLOOR IN THE HALLS!
I went here expecting a quality education, instead this school is very unorganized and does not prepare you well for the work force. I am left with this huge college loan I have to pay back when I could have gone somewhere cheaper. Not to mention medical assistants do not get paid well.
I am very happy with my job that I got but the school did not at all help me find my job. When I needed help with my resume because I had an interview coming up, they did not respond for 3 days, by then I had already had the interview. I could go on and on but I will just say that the school is completely unorganized, the education is not at all challenging, and I would not recommend anybody going here.
Go to a community college if you want to be a medical assistant, or better yet, go to a community college with a major that will pay you well when you're done.
I Just finished SChool There love the teachers the courses arent really hard but I would love to go back In time and choose a different option.
I Planned to finish Harris and Find a Great Job But Harris Have bad reviews from the extern sites and not many doctor office wanna deal with Harris nor there students.. so I suggest whom ever read this think twice before settling this school paying 13,000 is not worth just a diploma and Offices that dont wanna hire you.
i Believe Your best option is to RETHINK im not trying to down talk Harris im just trying to help I just wish Someone would have told me ahead of time.
