"I dont know what school the other people went to, but my experience at career point was completely different. First off, the school is not all runned down as the previous person described it. I constantly see the maintanance working on projects here and there, retouching a wall with a fresh coat of paint, fixing anyting that needs attention. Oh, and the vending machines are there. If you miss them, you may need to go get your eyes checked out. Besides, i dont know why anyone would rate a school on vending machines. Most of the coomputers have windows xp. The only ones that have windows 2000 are the ones in the typing class. But who would need more to type, its not like your gonna be typing at 3000 words per minute. As far as the free laptops go, you have to be enrolled in the associates program, and in the online program. You cant just walk up to your teacher and request a laptop, everyone is gonna laugh at you. What i see here is just negligence. One person somehow managed to miss everyting, and is now venting with a review. And please take pride in what you do, self pitty will get you nowhere.....Fast!"

"First off I would like to thank Career Point for helping me be the first in my family to graduate from college and set a great example for my kids. I started off in the IT program about couple years ago and not only have I found a job in something interesting and that I have a passion for, I now also gain the ability to take My A+ certification and diploma anywhere, and have tons of options and roads to pursue in my skills area. Let me just add I think this is a great school for someone like myself with kids and want to be able to do something thats going to be around for a long time."

"I was interested in the LVN part time program & scheduled an appt to speak to someone.I spoke to a young lady.I was only there for information but was told before I could get any I had to take their test. took the test & passed,after about an hour I still didn't have any info.I asked 3 different people there what the price of the program was & all of them said the same thing we can't tell you because everyone qualifies for different things.I think they are all trained to say this because I couldn't understand what the big secret was.I also wanted to know how often classes started & was told that there is no way of knowing until they start again but I already knew the next class was to start in Jan.2011 About an hour & a half later I still didn't have all the info I needed but they said I needed to return for the LVN entrance exam.After a few days of thinking about it I decided this the worst school I hade ever gone to,they are not organized,lied in my face & I knew it so she called me to remind me of my exam date I told her that I decided that I'm not going to this school she said"uugh" & hung up on me.After having a bad impression from my information appt.I just felt like this was not the school for me.I have since toured Galen nursing school & just fell in love w/it.My tour guide& info person gave me all the info I needed the price.it was just an awsome experience.I've decided to take my entrance test July 17 because I know this is were I'll be going."

"I will not disregard that CPC does provide a service to the community that is much needed. The compact timeframe that a certificate can be achieved is high need. The problem though is that the school takes advantage of that need. A person comes in to learn more about the school and isn't allowed to leave without signing up to start school the next week. The kicker is the financial aid. In order to attend school you go into serious debt taking out loans. Yes, school is expensive and loans are many times necessary. The problem is that the population who is being forced to take out these loans can't afford the loan now or after they graduate. The jobs they get just don't cut it, which is why staff will not answer questions about how much the program costs. Going into debt for education isn't bad, just make sure you are getting what you are investing in. What we have here is a situation where the wealthy see an opportunity to make more money and don't care who they are stepping on in the process. If you decide to go here, you will gain the skills you need to achieve in the work place, just know you might not make enough to pay off the debt. Invest in a future you can afford."

"The instructors were very knowledgeable and cared about my education. I had family issues that prevented me from coming to school. My instructors helped me out to finish. I now have a good steady job thanks to the instructors at Career Point."

"The faculty at this school is inadequate of teaching the curriculum. One teacher's teaching methods are different from every other teacher's methods there. The Medical Division Director displays demoralizing etiquette to students who seek out help and guidance. Teachers as well talk down to students and belittle them if things do not go their way. The structure of the faculty department overall needs to be improved dramatically. The curriculum is great knowledge but the faculty and employees there need to learn etiquette and mannerisms."

"After being out of school for a while I was really scared of going back to get the education I should of. I can happily say that after a week I am in the swing of things. The work load is something I can handle along with my job and family. The instructors really know their stuff. If I had a problem I can go to them and ask for one on one help. The deans are great they care about you and your success. The school just put on a Fiesta day for all the students and provided drinks and tamales for all. 98 the Beat was there and plenty of food to go around. The school does plenty to show their appreciation to us the students.I am happy I chose Career Point College I am getting valuable skills and a quality education to get ready for a better job and future!!"

"Career Points helped me find a great job. No I am not making $55,000 a year to start out, but I know I can learn enough to earn that one day. The best thing of all is I am proud of what I do and I know in my field of study the possibilities are endless. Career Point changed my life."

"I started school here in Sep 08 after considerable research of the different schools in San Antonio. The price for an associates degree was very comparable to the other schools I researched.The instructors in my field were very knowledgeable, since many have worked in the private sectors of their chosen fields and now are teaching and sharing those experiences with us. They are also willing to take the time to help and answer questions. All you have to do is ask.Most of my classes were self paced and I was able to get ahead of the normal time line that is in place for completion of courses.The campus is small and friendly. The student body is diverse and from all walks of life, as you would find on any campus. The school is growing daily. I always see maintance painting and improving the look of the classrooms and grounds. If you want a small campus life, instructors that have real world experience, hands on experience in the classrooms, then Career Point College is the right place to be. I am glad I came here. I have learned so much since I started and made many new friends."

"I came from a poor high school and learned long time ago that the building you learn in has nothing to do with what type of education you receive. I am almost done with my externship as a Medical Assistant and feel that I have learned alot since I first started. It's been hard working nights and going to school during the day. I can truly say that I dedicated myself as much as I can to my studies and my teachers have been great. I believe the office that I am externing at now would be a great place for me to end up after I graduate. Career Point has made it easier for me to go to school while still keeping my present job."

"In response to previous reviews, the school is not understaffed. The school is nationally accredited and you can't be accredited without certified instructors. The prices are comparable to other schools in the area. The school certainly doesn't have walls that are falling down. I had a very good experience at this school. I took the medical assistant course and loved the lab classes. I feel that I was very well prepared for my externship and job that I got after I graduated."

"This is not a good education choice. The place is a wreck and they charge about triple what the same thing would cost at a community college.I went here for almost a year and didn't get some of my books until about halfway through. The teachers are not certified. I found this out after I started, that they are not required to be since the school is not part of any public school group.It is definitely in the "for profit" arena. The walls are literally falling down. The "Deans" are basically secretaries that are there just to make sure you come to class. If you are thinking about going her, be warned. Ask around, and you won't get any good responses. Career Point is overpriced, understaffed, and falling down."
