"I am currently a student and would have been much better off spending less money at a community college. The criteria for entrance is "1st grade sub-mediocre" with people who say "Who do dhat" etc. The majority of students are on state aid and don't pay full boat so they have no real interest in the classroom and suck up everyone's time because they can't articulate a full sentance. Let's put it this way... Half of the class knows where all the courts are and the other half has no clue. RUN!!!!"

"i was told i should join a pc course...i did, there were 9 of us, then 6 then 4 .the men in the class who were familar with the information and technical aspects of the course were far ahead of the others in the class, so we proceeded at their rate, not a chance of catching up.then it was video games and searching the web....the other course was taught by a man with baggage and a bottle....nice guy bad time....i did not graduate, haha...and i am still paying off the educational fee for this wonderful academic experience."

"I attended the Southington campus last year for their "Health Claims Specialist"..some of the teachers were knowledgable, others not sure if they even knew the point hey were trying to make. It was great to meet new people and make soem friends and contacts. I was told I would have an externship with no problem especially since I had a 4.0 GPA..HAHA that was a joke! I was told that I would get a job, no problem!!! LIES!!!! My class graduated last December, I still haven't done my externship! 12 students in the class...3 have jobs!! The school hasn't even contacted me in over 3 months...wish I never wasted my time..cost me $15,000 and my family!"

"This is my last mod and i am truly dispointed and embarrassed that i went to this school. The teachers are way underqualified to the point of other techers having to come into the class to help us because our teacher had no knowledge of Medical Manager Program (why would she teach this class). One teacher constantly passes out and the ambulence is here on a weekly if not biweekly basis. One of our past teachers had controlled substances in her purse which was open for ll to see and she also has passed on occasion. Its a joke and i am not just saying this i am WARNING you don't come to this school, it's a waste of time and money. They say you can pick your own externship, well yes that would be the case if the woman in the office did her job but nope too much to ask. Some teachers are not only malicious but spiteful. This isn't a place for single mothers because of the unflexable hours. The school is not in the greatest of conditions considering the amount of money they are getting per student. One girl in the school (student) very obviously has something mentally wrong with her, overdosed in class had to have the ambulence come and you can bet she was back here the next day with her pills throwing up and spacey, we have people who come to the school to teach CPR and he told her that she was obviously going to the wrong field and proceeded to kick her out. It is just utterly ridiculous."

"I have 2 weeks left of branford hall and I must say it is the worst school I have ever been to. The teachers dont know how to teach and they only care about your money. The second class was when I started feeling like this. If I would have known what I know now I would have never came to this school. Any time you need to get in contact with someone in administration you leave message after message and no one gets back to you. Every one in this school is a joke and they dont care if you succeed or fail. As long as they have your money whats it to them. They have teachers that pass out in the middle of class and teahers who sit on there phone all night texting. I didnt pay money to come to this school to not learn. Your better off going to any other school but this one."

"This review is for the Springfield Medical Campus. The course work is very easy and the day instructors seem as if they have no idea what they are doing. There were no outside resources available to assit with our learning and the instructors most former graduates at least in the MA program are idiots concerned with their own personal lives rather than our success. I can tell you more about their personal life then I can about psych or medical law and ethics. The program director is no director at all most days she is out smoking and laughing rather than actually hhelping students i am not working yet and the experience was/is not worth my money"

"I started in January, the teachers don't even know how to spell! There are 2 teachers that pass out during class!! Ambulance must've been to the school 4x since January; and I attend NIGHT classes! The teachers aren't that educated, some shouldn't even be teaching. I wish I had more reviews to read before attending this school. They do sell it alot and care about getting your money! Its an old facility so it smells and not updated at all.They have a strict attendance policy, so if you have kids, this isn't the school for you! No room for that whatsoever. Its a glorified High school, even the night program, there are fights and girls screaming! I'm 32 yrs. old and wish I had gone to Sanford Brown. This school I do NOT recommend. save your money or get your education elsewhere."

"Seriously, They enroll people w/ the IQ of a 1st grader. No enrollment criteria in terms of testing learning ability. It's all about money. The state attorney general should be looking into this school's cirriculum for the money they charge and see if it's justified for the value. The medical assisting program is MISLEADING. You are pro-rated if you withdraw prior to 60% completion so on average you will owe $5,000 just to learn nothing. Real Medical Assisting training starts after the 60% enrollment period is completed, so they have your money and you have no choice to either withdraw and pay all of the $16k tuition or complete it. They teach 5th grade basic english courses and so on during the first few months. What a joke! Take a different program there I highly suggest if you want to obtain something valuable for the money spent that is more career focused."

"This school is what you make of it. Most of the day time students are fresh out of high school and unruly. Thus they will be treated how they act. All of my instructors except one were great, and work in the field that they taught. There is a computer teacher there that is who freaks me out, but I don't see him all the time. They do sell the school, but if you put in a lot of effort you will get what you want. Tose you wait for career services to help them out together a resume are stupid; she has to help so many people what do you think is going to happen? Take the initiative and do somethings for yourself. I think the admin staff should do a better job of who they let enroll in the school. If you are not there to learn, keep your attitudes at home!"

"The admissions staff do a great job of misrepresenting the school. You'll find out the correct information in your first module and by then it's already to late. You are treated like you are treated like you are four years old in some cases. Most of the classes are self taught. I would have been better off taking a online course. Save your money, and go to a real college. The bottom line for this school is the money not the students needs."
