ATA College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (24)
This is the worst school on this earth. If you have the option to choose another place do it. I have been here for 8 months now and 3 weeks out from graduation. My externship was about over and they took my Externship site managers side over their students and accused me of lying on my hours when i did NOT. The school brushes you off when they don't care what you have to say. They only care if you are colored and not anything else. The staff is rude and don't ever respond to you when you need help. I'm paying $14,000 out of my pocket to go here and I don't get respected like an adult. They treat you like a child that doesn't no anything. They don't help you find a place or job at all like they tell everyone. DO NOT GO HERE
I decided to go back to school in my middle 30s. I chose ATA college and it was one of the best decisions I made. When I was enrolled there the instructors were very knowable and was available to me for tutoring at anytime. Although its quite expensive to attend this school. I'm glad I did. I received my A.S degree and been working in my field of study since. When I graduated I felt very prepared for the certification exam and employment in the coding field. School is about what you put into it and if your willing to give it your all ATA will help you achieve that.
Im wanting to continue my education and I can't use any of the credits from ATA! I have to retake everything none of them transfer to any of the schools in my area! I actually haven't found one school within 250 miles from me that will use any of them! So after spending a year there I have to start from scratch!
Ata college really helped me with my career in dental assisting. I was looking for a college that would work with my schedule and the classes they offered were perfect. The teachers help me understand the material and the hands on work they allowed us was what I need to succeed. I have been able to find a great new job as a dental assistant in a local dental office and love my new career. All possible with the help of Ata college.
ATA is an amazing school, they also have amazing staff that help you with anything that you need or have a question about. The classes are small which is more time if a student extra help they can help you. The course went by really fast I couldn't believe that 10 months could go by as fast as it did.
I had a good experience with ATA College. When I was going to school, it was nothing but school, but now that I am finished, I am working at a nursing home as a licensed practical nurse, and I enjoy it. The class size was just right for learning at the pace I am used to so I highly recommend speaking to ATA College if you are interested in a new career.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE THEY WILL NOT HELP YOU TO FIND EMPLOYMENT AFTER GRADUATION THEY MAKE YOU TAKE CLASSES THAT DONT PRETAIN TO THE COURSE OF STUDY TO GET MORE MONEY OUT OF YOU! THE INSTRUCTORS KNOW NOTHING ABOUT TEACHING JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE DONE THE JOB DOES NOT MAKE YOU A GOOD TEACHER WISH I NEVER WENT!!!!!
The only negative would be is that if the main focus is LMR positioning, they need to have students get more time in in the lab to do so. Very few I have seen catch on quickly, the others very frustrated.
I am first hand knowledge that any soul considering this school, do an immediate about face.
It is way to expensive, you would be better off going to your local community college or university. It may take longer but the few extr months mean you are more likely to be hired into the position which you studied so hard for & extra bucks in your wallet.
Yes you would actually be able to buy a wallet if you do not attend this school.
They are only helpful after they got what they want from you & that is your loan given to them but you have to pay for it.,/p>
Yes you will be buying them new BMW's, Mercedes, Clothes, & Jewelry. Then "OH WELL" you tried.
I started in November 2012 for the Dental Asssistant program and I was going to my externship when I caught the flu by the same person that was training me, so the school staff stated that I fail and they wanted me to start again in January 2013, but the problem was they let another student who also fail her externship and let her look for a new site and start all over again.
But with me they told me different. so now Iam out of my externship and out of 14,5625 dollars that I have to pay back. I have written to my state senator and to the department of education hoping that someone will help me get my funds back so I can start some place new or have the school give me my externship.
Whatever it is I wanted to become a Dental Assistant . The staff lie to me and treated me different.
