Student & Graduate Reviews (44)
When I was young I paid dearly for attending this school for a career in electronics . There were no jobs when I finished And when I went back to school wasn't able to transfer one single credit! So paid student loan for 10 years for a program that was a dead end! Got scammed! And the name has changed 2 times since then of the school ! Do not go to school here ! Go to a accredited transferable college !
Best program they help me get a high paying job . Because of all the amount of information that this school tonight me I was able to find the perfect place to work. I don't just get good pay but I know exactly what I am doing and feel confident in what I do .
Loved it! All the instructors previously worked in the field they taught it. I felt completely supported the whole way. It is an expensive school but i feel was worth it. I am now working as a medical assistant in a clinic and am glad for the education i got at the school. All the teachers really cared about my success. Just like any school though you will get out of it as much as you put in.
Seeing as all Sanford Brown locations have voluntarily closed due to fraudulent promises regarding finding work and transferring credits, I just wanted to get my say in because I attempted to transfer my supposed 42.5 "college" credits and was denied by an accredited college. I heard rumors about the lack of respect for my school from the medical industry. At the end off training, one of my instructors suggested my class accept even a $10.00 an hour position (uh oh). The career unit sent me job openings off Craig's List. Finally, my unpaid internship business only wanted free help and was so cheap they squeeked. The office manager told me not to waste money getting certified because computers were capable of accomplishing the coding instead of actual humans. Also, bilingual students were more apt to be hired. My GPA was 3.92 and I did enjoy the challenge and a few of the instructors. Too bad a bunch of decent people were essentially scammed.
I went to Sanford Brown after my business closed. I was 48 years old and looking for a new career. I had always been interested in medicine si I inquired about the medical assisting program and was assured I was a "PERFECT" fit. I attended 11 months, maintained a 3.86 GPA and was a student ambassador, yet when I graduated no one would touch me. The best reason ever given was that I was a man, too old and not the "type". I have never worked one day in a doctors office and most of the people I graduated with didn't either. It is ALL about the money!
Um, the Houston campus is shutting down and we all being treated like crap here, its not my fault they make the program so hard that they cant afford to keep her open bc everyone drops out, is discouraged, the wrong color. ahem not black and not chummy w the professors.I'm seeking legal help to get my loans refunded. the program chair is showing his true face and treating ppl how he wants. I came here to learn. Not drop out. Not make friends. I came here to make $. If I wanted to be treated like crap, I'd be married and a housewife.
This school was a waste of money. Teachers don't have the knowledge they should. You can't transfer to a regionally accredited university but advisors there will tell you that you will be able to. Learning experience is not what you would expect from college. Many of my my classmates regret it as much as I do.
Please do not attend this school. It's a debt trap!!! They claimed they are accredited, but liar, liar! Please take the long road at a community college where your credits will always be transferable and you will obtained a job. Sanford Brown makes me a laughing stock at my job. I have a degree, but its worthless. Stay clear of this aweful school!!!!!!
The policy's at this school are ridiculous. If you have a death in your family, it is not an "excused absence". The Program Chair's are shockingly lazy and would rather say NO then take the time to help you with anything. Many of my instructors were incompetent, rude, made inappropriate remarks. Many of my instructors spoke broken English. There is nothing wrong with English being your second language, but medical terminology courses require medical jargon and some instructors could barely pronounce the words correctly or spell properly. Also many of the instructors were constantly speaking Spanish in classes. An institute is a business. If you are paying like I paid (cash in full), you expect to be treated with respect. Not the case with Sanford Brown Fort Lauderdale. I am immensely disappointed with how this school conducts their student relations.
This was a big waste of time and the worst waste of money I have ever experienced in my life. No one who was in my class got a job in the field after completing the program. No one from the career center answers the phone and no one calls you back after you leave a message. I now owe $25,000.00 for a worthless piece of paper a.k.a. a diploma. I actually had a potential employer to tell me my credentials aren't worth the paper they are printed on. Should have went to community college or at least someplace other than SBC!!! My advice....don't go here!!!!!
