Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2017
"I think that all these bad reviews are from lazy people who feel that the degree should just be handed to them. I have had nothing but helpful, encouraging instructors. Whenever I have not understood something,I emailed or called my instructor and most of the time received a response right away. Of course you are teaching yourself. It is an ONLINE school. What did you expect. If you don't have the mental capacity to learn from the discussions ND assignments you are screwed, and are wasting your time. I agree that the discussions are tedious sometimes but, it is what it is. I have seen what my classmates post. The words they use are at a fifth grade level at best. I research every discussion topic above and beyond the lecture material. I post an entire page, with examples, and my classmates post 3 sentences. That is what annoys me. And when we ask each other questions, none of them can form an educated response to keep the discussion going. This is not the fault of the instructors. It is grown adults being lazy, trying to get a degree but, not putting forth the effort to do anything productive to earn it. The posts where people say it is two years later and you still haven't found a job in your field, how is that possible? I emailed career services and they are helping me find one as we speak, and I haven't even graduated yet. Again you have to put forth the effort. Most employers want people with experience. Therefore,having career services help you, is what you need to do. My only complaint is the ignorant students they allow in this school. Ghetto language, and the fact that I work my butt off and these other students just do a half-baked job and still pass. I tired to befriend a fellow classmates, and she was so annoying and negative. Always complaining about the assignments, the instructor, etc. And always asking me for the answers. She would ask the instructor for help , and since the instructor did not just tell her the answer, but told her where to find it, she complained to the academic advisor and the advisor told her the instructor did nothing wrong. I laughed at that then blocked her on everything. I am here to earn my degree not be dragged down by someone else's negativity. Bottom line is if you are attending this school, you are an adult. Step up to the plate, don't do a half-baked job,and don't complain about the cost. Nothing is free, this is America. You are going to lay no matter what college you go to. You fell it isn't worth it because you don't put forth the effort to make it worth it. Grow up people!"
