Remington College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (79)
I went to this school looking for a bit of a step up in the employment area. I should have done my homework, for real. I graduated AND got state certified, I have yet to get a relevent job lead from them. Student career placement is a joke, I graduted as a Medical assistant, but they send me jobs leads for STNA, HHA and other jobs I had no concideration for. None of my fellow students have jobs in what we studied for. THIS SCHOOL IS A RIP OFF! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!
If I had known I could have just bought the books to study for the pharmacy technician certification on my own I would have not wasted over 13 grand at this ghetto school. It is not worth the money at all. Even after I graduated, they were still claiming I was a student there to get my pell money from the state of tennessee, then when I tried to enroll in a real school, I had to wait for the next academic year to start, because all of my available funds for that year were used up.
The Memphis Campus is a joke. I wish I would not have wasted my time and money on something I could have done on my own!!
I attend Remington Colleges Fort Worth campus and i finds that it is a great experience my only complaint will be some of the teachers study habits the are a little unorganized other than that its a good school in my view..But i have One question does Remington send out refund checks like other colleges ???someone please tell me
Remington has some good and bad spots. Sometimes as a person you have to know what you want. I sometimes knew what classes meant more to me than others. I knew in my mind what I could get away with. And as a person starts to get older they can also recognize that in other people. Some Instructors are very versed, others may be looking for something that is totally irrelevant. Although I may not get back to school at those costs there's some good people there. I developed Schizophrenia at age 22. I was completely exhausted when I graduated Remington College. I can tell you, your going to get a benefit from it as long as you sit through it.
I went to Remington for Medical Assistant. All they seem to care about is your money. Poor communications, they pass the buck. They lie to get you in there and even worse I still have not found a job!!!
I would ask that next time the folks of Remington College show a little more respect.
I attended Remington in 2003 for the MA program. They told me everything I wanted to hear esp about getting a job as an MA! My attendance was good. I maintained very good grades! I even made the Dean's list several times. Point is, it's been several years since I attended remington and I still dont have a job as an MA because I don't have any work experience. I dont know how people expect u to get work experience if they're not willing to hire you! Im stuck paying on a $9000 loan w/ no job. So if you're considering Remington College( garland campus)for the MA program( or whatever) please reconsider. Dont waste your time or money.
When I went in to my "interview" they were telling me everything I wanted to hear. Yes, everything seemed to good to be true. I guess you can say that it's my fault for believing them, but I was young, and I think they used that to their advantage. Straight up they told me I would only pay 10 grand of the 30 grand tuition because I qualified for financial aid. They told me I wouldn't have trouble finding a jib when I graduated. WRONG. And they also told me that if I wanted to get my Nursing degree right after I can easily transfer my credits. BIG LIE! There is no one here that take Remington credits. That school is full of lies. All they care about is trapping a student in and sucking the money out of them.
I attended Remington College,and just graduated in October. When I first visited the school I thought I was doing the best thing,being that it only took 9 months and I thought for sure that I would be getting certifed in a career that would pay very well.All the instructors told us we shoudld expect at least $13/hr which I thought was pretty descent,Well not only did almost every instructor we had get fired but some of them seemed uneducated and they made the work so easy that you really didnt learn anything.
And just to let anyone considerin medical assisitng know,most jobs only want to start you out around $8/hr with a certification and no experience,thats close to minimum wage and $2/hr less than what i mkae at my current job,so this MA diploma isnt going to get me anywhere,If I had known this when I signed up,I would'nt have,Now I realize it was a waste of my money and I'm now looking into getting my degree in nursing,at another school of course!
And not to mention that we constantly got mixed information about everything while we were in school,my whole class was mad and very uspet that they chose remington because they were'nt getting what they paid for,And when we needed to find out about important information,each member of the faculty had a different answer or would tell each student something different,so we were always confused on everything,it seemed the faculty and teachers really didnt know what was going on.Im not trying to downgrade the school,Im just passing on my experience and I've got the other 13 students that were in my class that feel the same way.please do your research before you make a decision!
The teachers make fun of their students go weeks without teaching/lecturing. One mod my teacher lectured one time total. When you need help from someone they are always in "meetings", not available, don't return your calls or send you in a run around with no help.
