Bryant & Stratton College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (37)
They were very pushy to sign me up and fill out student loan applications. I wasn't thrilled with that but I thought that I was doing something good for myself. I asked them about not having to take online classes and was told that I could take all my classes in a classroom. This was only the case the first semester. I did really well the first semester taking classes that I didn't need but was pushed to take them. when I went to sign up for next semesters classes I was told that they were only online. the one thing I didn't want, and they didn't seem to care . I never finished because I couldn't take online classes. quite frustration and a waste of my money and time.
I wouldn't recommend this school to no one. You pretty much self teach yourself. I was told that the program was accredited before I entered the program and it's not. The schedules aren't flexible at all. You have no choice on what's your schedule and the dean doesn't care if you have kids or if you have to work one day a week. They tell you it's nothing they can do. The dean doesn't care about the students at all. All she care about is having her numbers look good. She had several complaints about an instructor in med surg that wasn't properly teacomg is and the whole class was failing. Her excuse was nursing was hard. Well at the end they had to curve the grades so that everyone wouldn't fail. Besides the point we didn't learn anything in that class. They have an ATI testing that's worth 40% of your grade your last semester. If you don't pass it you pretty much fail. Once again the dean told me she had to do something really drastic to the students. So many people failed it, they had to do some to those that failed to earn more points because she was concerned about not becoming accredited. She don't care about the students learning at all.
To start off this place is a joke. Teachers get excited about when they can fail students, and when you go to talk to the Dean she treats you as if you are 8 years old, dismisses you right away as if no one can talk bad about her staff. Also there is no one that is above her that you can talk too, even in New York they won't do anything. SO the Dean can do whatever she wants. This is the most unprofessional school that I have ever attended. Then was told that the LPN/LVN program was accredited when it is not. This school just lures people here so that they can get their money. And the commercial and everything says their schedule is flexible which is another lie. There are a few teachers that I have absolutely enjoyed and have learned a lot from but aside from that, like stated above, most of the teacher get their jollies from failing students. BUT if you kiss their butt they might let you pass.
This school is a waste of money. Their slogan "for every & in life" is bullshit. They tell you what you want to here to acquire your financial aid and out of pocket money and they have no intention on working with your schedule. I highly recommend ANYBODY not to come to this school. It's a waste of time and money. You have to teach yourself and your convenience is always disregarded. The teachers are very inconsiderate of any family crisis. They have unrealistic and almost impossible to obtain expectations. If you are a hands on type of person, this school is not for you. You have to teach yourself everything on your own time. Nobody answers your emails when you have legitimate questions or concerns that are time sensitive. Nor are they available when you show up in the office to inquire. None of the directors know their job in and out to be able to answer your questions and they always have to ask someone else for reassurance. Answers are half a** and inaacuarate at times. The whole experience was a waste. The only thing I'm learning is that sometimes it's better not to go the fast route or cut corners at all costs. It costs you more here to get nothing out of it.
To begin with, I went through the police academy at Bryant &Stratton. The academy itself was fine. Bryant & Stratton itself is a joke and a scam. I ended up with an extra $200 in hidden fees that weren't listed in the financial aid agreement. They will not return phone calls. It took two weeks of daily phone calls before the "financial aid advisor" answered. This school is NEGLIGENT in returning calls, or certified letters sent in the mail let alone assisting students. This school is a fly by night operation. This school should be sued for it's business practices or for fraud. Please, consider other reputable schools for your education. I hope you learn from my nightmare with this school. Going to Bryant & Stratton is a decision I regret.
They make a lot of promises in career services and help is almost non existent with that and finding an internship. Classes are all theory based with no hands on opportunities. Library is too small. Lack of parking. Teachers have a high turn over rate.
The nursing program in the Milwaukee region is horrible. Do not waste your money here. The Dean of Nursing is an absolute joke, there was a student kicked out for blatantly using their cell phone on an exam. Guess who was cleared by the Dean to re-enter the program, yup that's right the same student who was caught outright cheating. All they care about is getting your money. They sell the program as being flexible but this is far from the truth. The nursing scheduling is done in blocks. You are able to submit a preference sheet, but you are at their mercy where you get placed and it is up to you to figure out how to make things work with childcare, a job, etc. Also, you often will not know your clinical site until a few days before it actually starts. When it comes to the instructors there are some good ones but with the majority it comes down to whether or not they like you. If they like you they will bend over backwards for you. If they don't they will make things as difficult as possible for you and set you up for failure. Good luck of the Dean of Nursing doesn't like you, she will advise the instructors to look for reasons to dock you points and to fail you. The ADN program lacks consistency, with the addition of many other programs these inconsistencies are likely not to be addressed. Save yourself the money, frustration, and stress. There are plenty of other programs in the area that will view you as a person rather than another dollar.
The is a college for with only interested making money of student loan and the are not good at all. They interested in getting debt than enhancing your learning . I would not recommend this school to any the teacher's can not teach . it would be a waist of time and money you would get more from a Junior College that accredited because the school is overrated .
I loved this college. I found a job pretty fast. I found a job less then 6 months after graduating. They helped me with my resume and helped find jobs to apply for. The teachers where very helpful and love the labs. I don't understand why people give this school bad results. I had no problems with them. They are expensive but I found a good job and can move up in my career. I will go back to this school to get my RN.
First off, I guess I didn't believe the Advisor when she told me that I wouldn't be able to work while attended the program. This college is horribly expensive and caters mostly to the right out of high school crowd. They say they cater to working families, but it simply isn't true. They schedule you into 'blocks' that don't necessarily work out for home/work/ school balance. Second, I have a hearing deficit. I didn't think it necessary at first to have an ADA counselor, but soon found that not to be true. After talking to the ADA counselor who is also the Dean of Nursing, nothing was done to accommodate me. I have filed complaints with the ADA (response pending). I was only able to check off on competencies using a SIM man. Being competent listening to a machine vs. a real human does not give me confidence that I will be able to go out into the world and apply my knowledge to real life situations. The professors were, for the most part, great. They all had something different to contribute to your education. The problem is that B&S treats them so poorly, that they can't retain any of them, so each new semester consists of a new professor trying to 'learn' what they need to teach us. I am switching schools, but after completely one semester, I am already way more in debt than I should be. Don't let the idea of finishing earlier than most schools entice you into attending this school It will just take you more time in the long run. Financial services is awful. They make mistakes they shouldn't, and average response time with my financial aid advisor was 1 1/2 weeks. Around the time you are supposed to clear for the next semester, that is absolutely horrendous.
