"They change advisor’s and then they never notify the student that they are switching to advisor’s until you or some will notify you that have been changed to another department and that to much of a high turn over. As for jobs seeking is left up to the career counsel if they do their job which most have not or will not do. I am grateful that I had other skills that I was able to use along with my Masters degree. I work for a non profit organization assisting the disabled and homeless veterans as administrator and it is very rewarding. I enjoyed my instructors some more than others but this is higher learning and one has to be resourceful, and devoted to wanting an education nothing is given everything is earned. Make the best of your experience and just learn, and take nothing for granted."

"Bad experience at Everest I had bad teacher and never recieved my Rda certificate. All that money got nothing and I had to look for my own job they didn't look for it. Also when you need assistant they never help you have to do it on your own. Don't go to Everest"

"Everest College shouldn't be considered as a college. You cannot move forward with your degree because most of the credits "earned" aren't accredited. Most of the "professors" I had weren't knowledgeable in the field to which they were teaching. Also, you might as well go to an actual, accredited UNIVERSITY because the amount of money you pay to go to the school at Everest for two years is the same amount you would pay to go to a 4 year University."

"Well, I will start off by saying that I did let myself get sucked into the quick tongues the recruiters have. I had some troubles during the first half of my time in school, but managed to come out with a good GPA and my certification. I had received some financial aid, which in perspective only removed the steel toe from the boot that went up my butt following my graduation. I had a lot of trouble getting into a job for massage therapy, as most places that paid well required at least 2 years of experience, leaving me with the options of Massage Envy, or some other low-end massage parlor. The Education I received was well executed and very helpful, but what they failed to mention, is how difficult and almost impossible it is to get one's foot in the door with that career. The amount of hazards, and potential for being labeled as a sex offender, or malpractice for males in that field is just too risky. Furthermore, after I had finally gotten a position working for Massage Envy, I was only making minimum wage during the whole time I worked there, making me unable to pay for my debt, my bills, gas, food, ect (I literally went without food for days out of the weeks following, and a few months with no electricity.) The program needs to find better ways to help men who want to work in that field be more protected, and for everyone to be able to land a better paying position. I didn't enroll into a program that cost me about $20k ($14k currently) so I could work at a minimum-wage facility. I am very sad that I had to give up my dream of being a massage therapist because I wasn't able to afford getting my continuing educational credits I needed to renew my license. For all persons considering the program, think really hard about what you want and what you'll really get, and BE SURE to check both the good and bad reviews about the field. For you men out there thinking of going into massage therapy, PLEASE consider the dangers involved in the field; you'll be massaging people, who could easily ruin your whole career on the spot, in which you'll only be making minimum wage doing so (unless your lucky)"

"I am disappointed with the Everest College Board and all affiliate who have robbed so many well ambitious students of their real potentials,many of us are still lost in our shock of learning since graduation that most of the units were not properly accredited and highly marketable. I personally did well and made sacrifice whist attending to an austistic kid fulltime this wasn't fair as I expected to secure a legal job from the placement and didn't receive much help.I think we should be compensated richly, thanks"

"School is bad only if you don't communicate often as you should. But anyway I have learned a great deal at Everest Detroit Campus. The instructors are somewhat decent. Homework is to be done in class. However, you are being tested anyway most of the time weekly. The homework is based on tests that you will be taking. It's not like it's not part of you curriculum because it is, otherwise you don't pass tests. If you have the option of doing homework in the room TAKE IT because  you won't be doing the same work anyway. There are many hands on projects to do and for me to be able to do work in the classroom is a plus, honestly because it is a lot to take in, so don't complain about the homework class because lectures do happen A LOT and you need all the knowledge you can get. So far I have to say I am satisfied."

"I went to the school in Bremerton. The teachers were very nice but HORRIBLE at their jobs. It's basically a self taught course for a certificate you don't even need to do the actual jobs. They will come at you mercilessly for the useless tuition. My advice is to stay clear of this terrible institution, you're much better off using wikipedia to get the skill sets they teach, honestly. On several occasions the "counselors" pulled me into their office and tried to coach me on professionalism, they had nothing but pompous and arrogant attitudes and were honestly quite useless. They do a lot of flash and pizazz to get you to think you're actually getting an education but you're not. Don't end up like me with a useless certificate and $16,000 in debt, it's just not worth it."

"I began a day late on the 28th of February 2015. I received a syllabus, reading material, a backpack, IT tool kit and shirts. I did not receive my computer until February 2nd or my external hard drive (WD My Passport) until the 5th. Since the beginning of school to the present date 2-23-15 many red flags have gone up. 1. There was only one instructor for two classes happening simultaneously; which forced both classes to share part of our 4 hrs 2. The class was not geared towards beginners, as my admissions manager had said. She said “The instructor shows you everything from how to turn on the computer all the way up” My first and only class was over Linux and Mac (two separate operating systems) 3. The internet speed is inadequate to conduct classes that rely on computers to produce work and learn. I have 11 speed tests done over 6 days at various times to prove this. 4. There were no lectures or step by step demonstration done by the instructor; with exception of 2 YouTube videos. 5. The syllabus was not followed. There was a test given before it appeared on the syllabus and out of the 4 weeks I attended we only got through week 1 of the syllabus. 6. The work that was done was not able to be turned in. The instructor would not accept it until he finished his portal; which wasn’t ready until 2-16-15 and to date has not been graded. This allows no way for students know if what we had completed and studied to be correct or not. 7. February 20th there was nothing for students who were done with their work to do since there were no Week 2 handouts or labs given to us but there was a due date for the work of February 23rd at 11:59pm. (We did not receive them that day or over the weekend) 8. February 23rd I arrived at school to find out from 3 of my classmates that the Professor would not be coming back to class. He had called or texted those students to deliver the news. We sat without an instructor the entire day. I withdrew from classes today and was told that I would be liable; more accurately, FASFA would be liable for the entire time I spent in class regardless of these reasons to be billed a lesser amount. I was also told by the Director of Education that only the President of the campus at Greenspoint could make adjustments but he declined to meet with me. This situation was handled in the same accord as everything to this point has been...poorly."

"I enrolled at Everest College on a whim, just a single mom looking for a way to better her career. I absolutely loved the medical assistant program, my teacher was amazing and I learned so much. The career services department on the other hand, made the process of my externship absolutely miserable. My 2 year old got sick half way through my externship, I was out for 3 days and they threatened to drop me from the program. They would call me 4 times in a row and leave me rude voice mails followed by nasty emails. They talked down to me like I was a 5 year old and were extremely unprofessional. I would repeat the program all over again if they weren't there."

"I can honestly say that this was the worst school I have been to. The finance staff were lazy and slow at processing anything. Lots of excuses made. The Vp on campus was terrible at resolving issues and accommodating students. It would actually be easier to explain the few things I did like about the school. The receptionist, M. was great at her job, and always friendly. It was nice to only be in class for half of the day. I feel like I did retain information from the books and some of the teaching. Dr. Lee was good at teaching classes about the anatomy, and Ms. R. was good at teaching the administrative classes. Those three staff members were the only ones I actually think did well at their jobs."

"DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!! When I went in they made all kinds of promises that were all lies! When I went into do my financial aid I had a pell grant for almost $6,000. They told me the rest was going to be a grant except $2,835 that I would have to pay back. When I finished school I got an email from a loan company saying I owed the $9,500 and just last week another loan company emailed my and said I owe the around $3,000. When I asked where my pell grant was they said I see you had a pell grant for $1,700 I then said that is not right where is the rest of it and they said they did not know. I feel completely fraud! I have all these loans to pay back and still haven't even found a job in the field I went in for. Loan companies are harassing my I keep telling them I had no knowledge of any of this and that the school lied too me. with all of this said if anyone knows where I can get some help with this manner please let me know. I just want all of this to go away so I can go to a real school."

"I learned after graduating with high honors that this college was really only a program. Only real colleges have credits toward a real credited university. The career department is a joke I had to come up with all of my own career path decisions everything from the resume to enterviews and getting and actual job in the field I had study for, to find out that only temporary agencies were only willing to hire me. Medical billing and coding is a joke because this title equals to bill collector in the medical field which is very rear in real world. Look I went two year depending on My MEDICAL BILLING AND CODING TITLE while being told over and over again that I basically needed a real college education to work in this field in a hospital or clinic. I just graduated from a community college which gave me an associates degree so that I can really transfer my college credits to a university to work in administration is in the hospital which are what medical biller and coder do there. AND now I'm stuck with the $12,000 bill from Everest that a complete waste of time and not to mention my money.but what can I say I love and I learn.....please go to your community colleges or universities please stay away from all private colleges that you cannot use your credits to go towards university or real associates or bachelors degrees that the real world ask you for in order to get a nice respectful paying job or career......"

"This was one of my biggest mistakes. I am a great student passed with 4.0 across the board and had perfect attendance. I choose this school cause it was recommended to me but didn't check everything about the school. First off organization of staff seemed well organized when I applyed they are great at getting you started. However they have failed to mention that there has been an influx in teachers in the pharmacy technician program causing a lot of confusion among students, I did a lot of self teaching. The head of the program defiantly displayed her favorites which means even if you are a great helpful student don't expect any recognition. In matter of fact they continue to recognize people who were view by other students as bullies or wine like children. Second even those whom you feel are looking out for you may drop the ball. I had passed my national exam months prior to graduating and turned in all my paper work thinking I was done only to find out a month later that my state liscense was never filed. So now not only will I not be paid for what I am essentially certified I will have to wait a month for the liscense and then an additional month for my pay wages to change."

"Ok let me make this clear....everyone on here that are leaving short and vague negative reviews, MOST LIKELY SEEM to have not been independently motivated enough to take what is theirs....basically more like people who seem to have thought it was a free and easy ride to a better future. Now that being said, ANY PLACE that offers those medical billing/electrial/6-9 month programs should always be suspect, a prospective student should have taken a proper tour and evaluated the teachers based on what they have seen during the tour. Also compare reviews of people you know that have attended everest and graduated. Now on to my personal experience at Merrillville everest college, every teacher that I have had except for Ms. Cheryl has been outstanding, even with our class size (28), each instructor has made more than enough time for each student without discrimination. Ms. Boyd, Mrs. A, Mrs. Hein, Mrs. Pattengale,all of them were outstanding. Everyone in the class was able to click and work in study groups for the entire year and so far everyone except 3 people have passed boards from our class, on the first attempt. It is rigorous, it is demanding, and it does require you have some sort of support outside of school (i.e. family friends,financial support is a biggie). I can say without a shadow of a doubt had it not been for the friends i made in class to my parents and spouse being the pillars while i began my Lpn, I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT. Thank you God and thank you everyone that has been there. My future is brighter because everyone from the intial enrollment to my graduation has been a tremendous factor."

"I signed up at Everest College because I am not good in school. I figured going to school for one year would be much easier and more beneficial then going taking the 'same' course at a 'regular' college for 2-3 years. I was promised one on one help with my teacher (there were almost 30 of us in the course.. there was no one on one support, even after hours, because my teacher had 2 other jobs). I was promised flexible school hours so I could continue to work, one month into the course we a had no choice but to attend the 1-5 class, which cuts right through the day shift and the afternoon shift at my job. I would have to leave class one hour early so I could go to work, not fair because I missed out on some lessons and often my exams were cut short. I had to pay my rent and bills somehow! During one of the modules, I became sick and missed 4 days. I was not allowed to continue the course until I picked up that module. I was told I could pick it up ASAP. Of course, I had to wait a few months before I could finish it. At this point I had no choice but to continue the course because I was already past the date where I could cancel my student loan... Then came the end of the course. I had to fight and fight and put multiple complaints in to head office so my teacher would get me the placement she offered. I finally got the placement, and it was great! Unfortunately, all these places we are told we are qualified to work at, only hire social workers. You are told when you sign up that Everest college only offers courses that are in high demand in the community. There are no jobs in the addictions field. it has been 2 years since I have graduated and all I can get is a 12$/hr job in security... I now work in something not relevant to my field of choice, and I can not return back to school because of the money I owe after wasting my time with Everest. I am 22 years old and am already going no where in life. Thank you for wasting my time and money. I should have read the reviews first..... I knew it was too good to be true."
