"I would recommend this school to anyone interested in the medical field ,if you want to get your foot in the door in the field its a good school. I am finishing up my degree at the Fort Worth ,tx location and have learned so many new things . I want to say thank you to all staff and advisors that help the student achieve their goal. Especially greatful to my academic advisor for being persistent of my signing up for classes and helping me every step along the way , Im really glad I took a leap and finished the Ma program"

"I have to say this is the most unorganized school I have ever been to. I have been here 8 months and cannot tell you how often I think of leaving because of how unfair and ridiculous this school is. Teachers place different due dates and assignments in different locations, sometimes you just have to rely on word of mouth from other students just to know what needs to be done. Something will say it is due at midnight but they expect it days before or you get a zero. It is ridiculous. Cheating incidents are not taken seriously but rather blame is placed elsewhere. I would never recommend this school to anyone. I have been to other colleges and have yet to see one this childish. I have to say, certain teachers keep me going. Without the few good ones, I wouldn't have dealt with this this long"

"I attended and graduated from Brightwood College, I attended knowing success always depended solely on my sacrifices and effort that I put in and their radiology programs are not easy. They arre determined their students who pass the program to pass the exams and start a career, the teachers are great, especially my director Mr. James G. Murrell and Mr. Robert Medillin III, they would always make time for me to help me understand the concepts and reasoning. They don't spoon feed anyone, you put effort they help you; now expecting them to give you answers without effort better think again. They were always there for me and classmates. The general ed classes for the Math and psychology were great, but not the speech, that was my experience. The staff is great, they try to connect the students and graduates together for learning and with jobs as a network which is essential for careers."

"For overall experiences at this school, I would give 3 out of 5 stars. I enrolled in Medical Assistant course, this school has offered all new students for 21 days provisional period to try-out. If you dont like it (just like me) you can bail without any student loans applied. So, I gave it a try since some of the reviews in here are totally opposite. I have no medical background and learning something new was tough, but it would have been easier if the school had given me cleared prints out or lend me some textbooks. Although, I understand that the school tends to be online and visual learning base but some power point pictures and texts are not cleared enough especially when you need to learn the details of skins layers (Integumentary System) Also, PowerPoint presentation left out too many details. I found out that I was struggled while doing in-class assignment or homework; I most relied on Google search. However, I decided not to continue the course, solely on my personal preferences. Ive seen many students happy about the class and decided to continue. For me, I would rather spend less than $15K for MA certificate."

"I have been here at Brightwood College for 5 months and it has been great. I have attended 6 different college or universities. This campus in Corpus Christi has been the best at communicating with me. The men who got me started, J and D, were great at getting the information that I needed to me so I could decide whether or not to start. T., is the lady who referred me here, I can't thank her enough. The teachers, all, have many years of experience out in the field and freely share their experiences with the class. The classrooms here real tools that you need to practice what we will be doing. I am also pleased with the front office staff. Thank you to all at Brightwood College."

"If i could give this school negative stars i would. Nothing but uneducated teachers who teach you incorrect information. Very rude to the students. Very unorganized and financial aid/ funding has no idea what they are doing at all. I feel robbed out of my money for the horrible education i have received. I relied on google and teaching myself from a textbook because all my teacher did was read from the book. I will NEVER have anything good to say about this school and neither will any of my classmates. We all have had a horrible experience and regret ever considering this school."

"The Military Student Center for veterans receiving MGI or Vocational Rehab financial aid assistance, has terrible customer service. Two gentlemen who work at the Military Student Center, Garry Roberts and Morris Jones were not only not helpful, but wrote a highly inappropriate and unprofessional email to my VA case worker on a he said/she said basis that resulted in my withdrawal from the program. As a student and veteran, I highly discourage any other people seeking to enter any program to reconsider not only the curriculum but the best treatment any student paying for their education to look at all the other institutions and universities that offer a much better education and customer service to their students. Brightwood college is overpriced education with very poor and limited success at retaining quality students."
