"It's not the best. For the amount of money I spent, it's not worth it. The teachers are amazing but the staff was pretty rude at times, some of the students were so young and immature, there was way too much drama, and two faced people. I won't recommend this school to anyone unless your using it as a stepping stone and can igrone the bull crap and immature children fresh out of high school. I did enjoy my time there and did get a lot out of the classes but a lot of the stuff was wxpired or out of date. For the amount of money you pay you'd think it would look better but it doesn't. Three teachers left during my time there so that told me a lot. Plus we had a lot investigating going on while I was there for students being discriminated against and being wrongfully charged for dumb things. When I first started many of the people that had been there for a while were very stuck up and rude. Some people I had in class became two faced. It was all just a bad combination for me."

"PLEASE do not waste your money or time. The only thing more horrible than the worthless classes and useless diploma are the family that owns it. They lie, cheat and steal. They use strongĀ arm tactics to force students to do whatever the "rules" say. Only problem is the rule change depending on who breaks them. I have seen 4 students get caught and only 3 of them punished. I have seen students fail a class only to be passed because of who they were. The owner care about 1 thing MONEY! They take advantage of anyone they can. They will try and swindle every dollar from students including charging for water! Again STAY AWAY! This is why they lost 5 instructors in 1 month and they are under investigation by both state and federal authorities."

"Abdill is a good school. It is a good option if you want to get an education in a short amount of time. There are times when it seems like the work load is a little too heavy for the time frame, but it's worth it in the end. They have a knowledgable staff and I would probably recommend this shook to a friend."

"This school saved my life. It was just what I needed to start over again. It gave me back my confidence. I went through 2 programs here, and am now, I'm having job interviews that look to be very promising. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to start over, and get a degree quickly/"

"Abdill is a great school. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in an 8 month program in order to obtain a certificate. The teachers really are interested in YOUR progress, future, and success. My favorite part of the whole program would be being placed into my externship. You get a full feel of what your career will be like, and in some cases you can get hired on to the business you are working with."

"I attended Abdill Career College when the company I worked for after ten years closed their doors. I chose this college because it was a quick way to start a new career. I would recommend Abdill Career College to someone who needs to make a change in their life in a short amount of time. It was very challenging and fast paced. I enjoyed the instructors and the office staff. I learned a lot and I cannot wait to use what I have learned in the real world."

"I received adequate instruction from this school, material was relatively easy and i was able to complete the program and become prepared for my new career path in a very fast amount of time! I would have liked the instruction to be a little more in depth rather than teaching solely out of the textbook but i did achieve my goals. it is also expensive but student loans are easily available yet will leave you in debt. also with so many females there is too much drama but i reccomend it to ppl with thick skin who just wanna get in and out and can ignore the drama!"

"I attended Abdill Career College in the medical assistant program. I did receive adequate instruction in order to be successful in the Medical field however it was mainly because I worked very hard to succeed. The material was taught strait out of the textbook and when asking clarification questions it became clear that the instructors did not fully understand what they were teaching. Most of the instructors are former abdill graduates and have never actually worked as medical assistants. There is also a significant problem with conflict of interest at this school. the three main administrators are related and the rest are close friends, therefore if you have any problems with one of them it will effect your overall progress. I was not pleased with the professionalism or lack there of. I do, however, feel like I have a good understanding of the medical assisting career path. I would only reccomend this school to someone who is looking for a quick and relatively easy way to gain a new career. do not attend if you think for yourself, tend to stand up for what is right, and would prefer to be treated like a human being. It is also outrageously expensive however they make it easy to attend with student loans but you will be in debt when you leave. good luck!"
