Please look into Community College first, At Collin, the program only cost 4K including bar exam fee and bar reviews plus job placement. Concorde is accredited by Ciara but not registered but Certified, hospitals don't hire CRT's anymore. I pass the examination here for CRT but I am so glad I look into community college and got accepted at my first try.
Tuition cost way to much,everything is rushed,you really don't gain any skills to where you feel confident to get a job or go on an interview ,they only care care about making the school a 5.0 they force you to take internships that are not close by where you live,they care all the way up until they get that loan money, Go to a technical college its way cheaper and you will save money and learn more I'm disappointed at how greedy this school is for money.teachers are passing you have so they look good instead of really trying to help you.
This is the most unprofessional college I've ever seen. They allow certain students to get extra points while others who work hard can't catch a break. Then they lie about it!!! Students get caught cheating and nothing is done about it too. Thy staff are incompetent. Honestly it's not even the teachers either. It's the administration.
My college is an accredited school that gradually helps you earn your credentials. There is also external support provided within the campus. Attending this college motivates me to want to further my education and experience higher entry levels. I would most likely recommend my college to anyone seeking to further their education.
They lied from beginning to end. When I first registered I specifically asked if they were an accredited school. Comes to find out, the DANB does not recognize them. Therefore, all my hard work was for nothing. It has been next to impossible to find a job as an assistant because of this. Not to mention, the other students are the ones that are showing you how to do things, not the teachers.
I am a current student. My first term was amazing! My second term has been a nightmare. They started a new curriculum for new students so they're doing a teach out with my term. The provided us with an incompetent instructor, and she screwed is over. So far, no major steps have been taken to fix the issue, and we may be stuck with her for two more terms. This isn't right or fair. We're paying lots of money for this education that isn't fairly being offered to us!
I attended Concorde in 2015 and it was the best decision I ever made. At first I was skeptical and worried reading all of the negative reviews online but I decided to give it a shot. I got great grades and did my externship at one of the best hospitals. They offered me a position which I turned down, I turned down many positions until I found the one that was just right for me. Finding employment was not a problem. I now work in an amazing hospital and make good money while I am in school again to become an RN. I would definitely recommend this program.
It's been 10 years and I still regret attending Concorde not to mention I'm still paying my loan and have never been late on a payment. They get you in the door take your money and never give you the proper training. The instructors that I had were a joke. PLEASE RETHINK ...Never want an education that bad to put yourself I this situation........RUN and Run fast.....
This program has been a big waste of time and money. It is very disorganized and I feel I have gained nothing from being here. The instructor is incompetent in teaching and frequently teaches wrong information. It is not even worth it to show up for class the majority of the time, it is just wasting time that I could be teaching myself the information at this point. The instructor doesn't even use recommended material for the subjects we are supposed to be covering, he often just makes up a lesson with no educational value. There is a lot of class time wasted on doing absolutely nothing, while he runs to print off PowerPoints or searches for YouTube videos that are not credible for the subject we are on. The entire program has been a mess from the start, we have had to deal with multiple firings of instructors, and even a change in program directors in the short time that I have been here. I strongly advise that you DO NOT waste your time and money here.
This school is all about getting you in fast so they can get paid. I just finished my CNA program at UTA before checking this school out for medical assistant. It was close to my house, and wanted to see if it would be a good fit in furthering my career. Not the case at all. The program cost was ridiculously high; $16,000. At the University of Texas at Arlington, the same program cost $4,500 and it's way shorter (3 months); plus they pay for your certification exams too. Before I could even find out how much my school was going to be covered by financial aid through Concorde, they had me enroll. Gave me my supplies before class started, and told me not to worry. Second week of class, financial aid advisor comes and tells me something totally different from what Admission counselor told me. I would have been paying back the school privately for 48 months, and the federal government for student loans. Was not looking to have more student loan debt, and be making the same money I make now on average. Along with my financial battles, the caliber of some of the students was too unprofessional for me. How do you expect to be working next to a doctor and you are acting disrespectful and loud? Would not recommend this school to anyone that is professionally oriented, wants to make a rewarding change, and likes to make informed decisions before executing anything.
