Student & Graduate Reviews

This school is so unprofessional

"Sadly I do not want to use my full name, in fear that the school would go after me. My class mates and I have had several issues, form the school being dirty, the staff being unprepared. The director is rude and is not helpful as soon as they get their money , they do not care about you. Getting your final paper work is a nightmare even if you do get it. Please travel to a different school if you can, you do not need to be stressed and angary all the time like most of us were."

"It’s a great school that interacts with the students. My advisor was very helpful & informative. I reach out to Theresa any time of the day and she ALWAYS responds. I will definitely recommend this school & Theresa to my friends/family who are interested in pursuing their career."

"It's difficult to admit you've been scammed. The sales pitch with an "act now" gimmick should've been my first clue. I was in a difficult point of my life and wanted to make changes. I had a BS and MA, I should have known this was a scam. Truthfully, part of me did know on some level, "but how could this place exist in the open if it weren't on the up-and-up?" I thought erroneously. Their main focus is attracting new students/marks and their career placement is laughable at best. I would definitely advise any potential student to choose a different school."

"American Institute Toms River I am a graduate of AI Toms River. I can not express how wonderful this school was for me. I started there needing a career, sick of working in the food industry. I am a mother of 2 and needed some where with night classes. The teachers and counselors are supportive and go above and beyond to help you succeed. After I graduated the career counselor helped me with my resume and job placement. The instructors set you up for success in your field, and exams in school, and state exams. With the test prep I received I passed my radiology boards the first time! I can not Thank this school enough. They helped change my life for the better."

"Although I was successful, I realized too late that the reason why I was successful was because of my own perseverance and want to be in the field. It's like, this was just a way for me to get 8 months to take some time off of work and actually study. The instructor was nice, but it was obvious that he was not cut out to be a teacher. The books provided were not up to date and I had a lot of trouble with the poor netbooks supplied so that you can do your "Work". Overall, the American Institute Clifton NJ Campus is a horrible school to attend. If you're going to spend money, go to a community college, take an Information Technology course and gain exposure to theory while working on Networking at home. Afterwards, try keeping up to date with the field via email subscriptions to Tech DLs like SANS. I hope this review helps people out in the future because I had to pay off a loan that ultimately meant nothing for my education."

"This school is a joke. The program left us completely unprepared. We did not get a clinical rotation so we have no experience outside of a classroom. They promise to help you find a job but then never follow through. I would never recommend this program to anyone."

"This program was a joke. I would not recommend this school at all. The instructor taught us out dated and incorrect information. We were unprepared for our clinical rotations. I couldn't wait to be done with this program. I would recommend finding another program."
