San Joaquin Valley College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
Don't do it. Buy the book at Barnes n noble and take the exam yourself. Itll save you thousands of dollars. I am now in debt, and the school promises to find you a job. Let me tell you, they don't. Pharmacists appreciate more a individual who took the time to learn it on their own rather than have it spoon fed to you.
I graduate back in 2007 from San Joaquin Valley College. I thougt it was a good idea to have a short career to start earning money and then continued with my education.I made a big mistake. Teachers are awful, and our classroom members did complaint about this, they promise big earnings....do not believe them...there is no job placement avaliable but the papers stick to the wall. Nobody is gonna hire you with this type of certificate.
RN program itself is Very challenging but I will highly recommend it. The school is great, the instructors are great, the learning atmosphere is great. Again, it is a hard program and students need to work hard and study intensely to do well and pass the classes/clinicals. The passing score is 75%. Good luck to everyone.
The school is a joke! I can remember when some of the teachers would basically give you the answers to make sure that you passed their class. Alot of the teachers had their favorites and so I felt left out sometimes. No one in my class found a job, and it was ridiculous. Where these teachers come from, is beyond me. I remember correcting the teachers sometimes, and I was the student. I owe $22,000 dollars and have to go back to school to be able to get a job. Career Services was really horrible. I graduated with Honors! Alot of good that did me.
I had an awesome experience with this school. I had a great Pharmacy instructor, Mrs. Sapp! If you are interested in going to school to be a pharmacy technician I highly recommend you take her night classes. It all went down hill for me when I started my externship class with a new pharmacy instructor, Mrs. Cervantez. I felt like she didn't really care about me or my well being. She was unprofessional. She was late to class 75% of the time and did not inform me when she made changes to the schedule. My license got to me 2 months after I graduated because I believe she procrastinated on the processing. She would also have a sub come in when she couldn't make it to class and would not leave any plans so I would waste my mornings twiddling my thumbs with nothing to do. In all honesty it left a bad taste in my mouth for SJVC because my last impression was of her. I wish Mrs.Sapp could have taught my extern class because I had the best experience with her through my journey!
This school helped me with work and made me understand many different programs such as Excel, Quick books,etc. The only problem is when I want to transfer to UC Riverside, I can't because the school degree is valued less than any other community college.
I attended SJVC from Jan 2013 to May 2014. I studied Aviation and it was a blast. I learned everything I needed to know to pass all 9 test (3 written 3 oral and 3 practical) the first time taking them with no problem, I got a job about 10 days after graduation working on propellers no problem. I had many compliments at my job for knowing so much for a new grad. The classes for my degree was not hard but definetly not easy. If anything its time consuming but5 if you want it, you can obtain it. My only suggesting, go to school for something that actually needs you to go to school to obtain the job.
It's not worth it, they get paid as long as you go there. After you externship if you don't get hired they lag it on finding you a job because they send you to all of these places but the employers are so picky and discriminating you will not get hired!!! I finished in January 2013 and still don't have a job plus i still have to pay back that student loan and I'm stuck working a minimum wage job
