UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (216)
All these comments are true! All this school wants is your money. The teachers are unprofessional, & once you graduate, you are on your OWN! They say they'll help you, but they DONT. UEI is the worst mistake I've ever made. I was better off before attending. Graduation= No job & a 14000 debt!!! Go to a community college, & get your self a REAL education without having to pay thousands.!!!! I wish someone would have told me this.
1st of all this school sucks. they dont care for you only for your money. this school is acredited but yet cant teach the right way. the teachers suck soime dont even know what or how to teach. they say they will help you look for jobs but if you live an hour away they cant help you. it is a bad school its small and tagged everywhere. no manners the staff suck theyre disrespectfull and bottom line it all sucks. the money they charge is not worth the education.
THIS SCHOOL IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME AND EFFORT. THEY WILL PASS ANY DUMB ASS JUST TO COLLECT THERE MONEY. THERE EXTERN SHIP SUCKS MORE THAN ANYTHING THEY PLACE YOU WERE EVER JUST TO GET YOU OFF THERE BACKS. NO ONE THERE IS PROFESSIONAL. ALL THE TEACHERS ARE JUST PEOPLE THEY PULLED FROM THE SIDE THERE ALL RETARDED. I REGRET GOING TO THAT SCHOOL AND NOW I OWE 10,000 DOLLARS FOR NOTHING AND THEY NEVER GOT ME A JOB SO I'M BACK WORKING AT TARGET. THEY DO NOT PREPARE YOU WELL FOR WHAT YOUR GOING FOR I TOOK MY A+ EXAM AND I GOT 10 RIGHT OUT OF 100. DO NOT GO THERE!!!!!
Im in medical assisting class and my teacher is wonderful. My teacher is a doctor form over sea. She has been a doctor over 10 years from where she come from. She listen to us and go into detail on when are in lab. She make sure that we know what to do and ask alot of questions. I think the campus in morrow, ga is a great school..
I GRADUATED FROM UEI VAN NUYS ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS MONEY AND THEY GIVE YOU ALL THE ANSWERS TO GRADUATE YOU DONT LEARN ANYTHING AND THEN THEY DONT GIVE YOU YOUR DIPLOMA BECAUSE YOU OWE MONEY EVEN THOUGH THEY ALREADY RECEIVED PAYMENT FROM THE BANK AND MY FEDERAL GRANT MONEY THEY SUCK
All trhe bad comments on this school are not true its a bunch of bullshit. im studying the pharmacy tech. program and its very good. these people that say are bad its just them. it depends on youo and if your willing to work for it. its very good.
I finished my Pharmacy Tech schooling (including externship)in Jan. 2010 from the Ontario campus. My GPA was 3.93 and was highly recommended by my teacher, who, by the way, was absolutely excellent. He taught things and answered questions that nurses or even doctor didn't know. However,my problem was not the education I received. It has to do with the career placement dept.
They got me one,yes one, interview with an actual Pharmacy. They sent me to a couple places that "packed" pills to be mailed out and got so desperate about their reputation, they sent me to a couple places that didn't even have to do with phar-macies; they were the type of jobs that I held in the past. I went to UEI to get away from "those other types of jobs" because they were unstable and I was always getting laid-off.
Now, if that wasn't stupid enough, they would e-mail me potential jobs to look into (however, that e-mail was going to everyone in the school in the Pharmacy Tech dept.)So much for the "personal touch". They were pretty much the same jobs e-mailed the day before and the day before that.
BUT, this wasn't even the tip of the iceberg! Half the time they weren't even paying attention to what they were e-mailing. They would e-mail me letters to apply at other technical schools like Kaplan, ACC and others.
I'm going to stick my neck out to get chopped off, but what the heck, I still have no job, I lost my home, have a gov't loan to pay back and had to move in with my son and his family. First, there are dozens of these schools out there spitting out grads every month, not to mention the Jr. Colleges and Universities. That means the market is flooded. If you're not bilingual, forget about it. OK, here comes the kicker, if you are white, male and middle aged, save your time and money.
Go into the pharmacies around town and see who is working there. The pharmacies are hiring family members, friends of other techs, friends of friends, etc, etc. My problem is not with the young men and women getting hired, more power to them; that's just the way it is. However, I think the some of career councilors aren't on the up and up, either. What does anybody in the school care, anyway. They're getting a paycheck.
So, if you are a WASP, young or old, save your money and go to truck driving school.
WELL I STARTED U.E.I A MONTH AGO AT SANMARCOS CAMPUS. I LIKE IT SO FAR, THE INSTRUCTORS HERE ARE EXTREMELY HELPFUL THEY WILL HELP YOU IF YOU NEED IT, THEY EVEN OFFER TO STAY AFTER SCHOOL AND DO PRIVATE LABS WITH YOU UNTIL YOU LEARN HOW TO WHAT YOURE HAVING TROUBLE WITH. THE INSTRUCTORS ARE PATIENT AND TRY TO TEACH IT IN A WAY YOU WILL LEARN (BC EVERYBODY LEARNS DIFFERENTLY)THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT I KNOW THAT HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THIS SCHOOL ARE THOSE WHO JUST SLACK OFF IN CLASS, THEY CONSTANTLY TALK AND DO WHATEVER THEY PLEASE AND THEN THEY WHINE AND COMPLAIN ON HOW THEY ARE FAILING. PEOPLE GROW THE FUCK UP.
THIS ISNT HIGH SCHOOL ANYMORE ,..IF YOU WANT TO BE AN IDIOT AND PAY 15,000 TO GO TO A SCHOOL WHERE YOURE JUST GONNA SLACK OFF AND NOT DO SHIT..AND EXPECT TO PASS AND GET YOUR DIPLOMA AND A FUCKEN JOB THEN U.E.I ISNT THE SCHOOL FOR YOU. YOU FUCKEN LAZYASSES. OTHER THAN THAT I LOVE THIS SCHOOL.
IM A STUDENT ALREADY GRADUATED FROM UEI AND IM SERIOUSLY THINKING IN SUING THEM... WE SHOULD FIGHT FOR AT LEAST GET OUR LOAN MONEY BACK CAUSE ITS NOT WORTH IT... I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR A JOB IN THE PAST 14 MONTHS, NOTHING YET... AND BESIDES THAT I HAVE TO PAY A NEW BILL... PLEASEEEEEEEEE DONT GO THERE...... DONT WAIST UR TIME AND MONEY......
THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE, MY BOYFRIEND ATTEND THIS SCHOOL FOR PHARMACY TECHNICIAN. WHENEVER HE NEEDED HELP THE TEACHER NEVER REALLY HELPED HIM MUCH. HE SAYS THE TEACHER SEEMS LIKE SHE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE IN PHARMACY TECH. THE TEACHER DOESN'T CARE IF YOU TURN IN YOUR HOMEWORK OR NOT, SHE STILL LET YOU GRADUATE FROM SCHOOL. THE STAFF THEIR ARE NOT FRIENDLY, ALL THEY THINK ABOUT IS MONEY MONEY MONEY.
I SEEN THEIR COMMERCIAL MANY TIMES ON T.V AND IT MAKES ME SICK BECAUSE IS ALL LIE!! DON'T BE FOOL BY THEIR FAKE ADVERTISEMENT. THEY DO NOT HELP YOU GET A JOB NOR DO THEY CARE IF YOU GET IT OR NOT. MY BOYFRIEND WAS LUCKY TO GET HIRE AT HIS INTERNSHIP. A COUPLE OF MY FRIENDS WENT THEIR FOR PHARM. TECH AND ITS BEEN 1 YEAR FOR THEM ALREADY AND THEY HAVENT GOT A JOB. U.E.I HAD TOLD THEM WILL THEY FINISH THEY WILL HELP THE STUDENTS GET A JOB, ITS NOT TRUE.
ALSO, AFTER MY BF GRADUATE, THEY WOULD SEND HIM MANY LETTERS REMINDING HIM TO PAY HIS LOANS. EVERY LETTER AND PHONE CALLS WAS REGARDING TO MONEY. HE RECIEVED A PHONE CALL AFTER 3 DAYS HE FINISHED THE PROGRAM, AND THEY TOLD HIM TO GO THERE, BECAUSE HE OWES THEM MONEY. THEY ACTUALLY TOLD HIM HE OWE THEM 3K MORE THAN HE SUPPOSE TO PAID..
ANNYWAYS ITS A REALLY BAD SCHOOL. I WAS THINKING ABOUT GOING THERE BUT AFTER ALL THE THINGS I SEE HAPPENED TO THE PEOPLE I KNOW, I RATHER GO TO A JR COLLEGE.
