Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2013

I went to Carrington College in 2013, I majored in the PTT program. I can tell you Carrington is a giant scam! First everything sounds great they tell oh you will get a job after graduation. I went through the program got good grades, when I went to externship, every tech I worked with said Carrington is a scam. The reason why they said this is because you don't need school to become a physical therapy tech, you could literally walk in volunteer for 2-3x a week once the PT trusts guesw what? Your a technician, after I finished my externship I didnt get any job help, they are supposed to help you, rather the lady gave me copies of how to make a resume. No job leads, i kept going a week after then after; still nothing. Eventually I applied at places on my own and got one call back for a pt tech job starting at 9 an hr. Thanks Carrington!! After all this I talked to most of my class and they ALL said they didn't get jobs after! After 13 graduates only 2 walked away with a tech job. Stay away from this school and apply at a REAL school. Was it worth 10k+ debt and no help?

Graduation Year: 2011

I went to Carrington College and graduated July of 2011. I am only 19 years old.If you want to go to this school, i suggest you DONT take the medical assisting program. Why? Because over 600 people graduate at the same time as you do, WITH YOU. And do you think all those 600 medical assistants will find a job after they graduate? NO. I currently work at a law office now, and thinking about studying law.

I feel like i wasted 16,000 dollars on this program. They dont help you to find a job, you sometimes might get a call from you advisor saying " oh theres a lot of ads on craiglist, ill email them to you so you can send your resume" . Little that they know that I go on craigslist EVERYDAY and apply, so I stopped answering their annoying calls. If you have a hook up after you graduate, GO FOR IT. If you don't then your pretty much screwed or maybe you might just get lucky! Again.. waste of money. Just trying to help people out.
