ECPI University Reviews - Associate in Medical Assistant
Review of Medical Assistant Associate Degrees
Still no job graduated 2016 Went through three people in career services last time spoke with them in January 2018 said would set up with contacts for job interviews. Never heard back from career services the person said go to craigslist and try. I have had interviews and told no experience. After I worked so hard in school for this big let down.
The Associates Degree program for Medical Assistant is amazing!!! The program offers really good certifications as well as real career time coursework. As a result of my studies and training, I was offered 2 positions for the same office upon completion of my externship. I want to extend a huge thank you to all of my classmates, teachers and the other staff members who helped me on my journey to becoming an alumni of ECPI- Charlotte.
I was very happy I decided to go to ECPI University. The clinical classes were hands on and the career department helped us with our resume, our externship and prepared us for job interviews. Even now after 3 years I still get email on job listings and job Faire. I love all my professors and developed a life time friendships with few. Going to ECPI was the best decision I made.
Don't waste your time with this school. I graduated 4 months ago and still can't find a job. All the ads say 1, 2, or 3 years experience and a couple stated no new graduates. I did very well no criminal record good credit and job reference. Career Service don't really help you. Also they don't teach you everything I went out on my externship and didn't know how to do some things because the school didn't teach it. Just overall waste of time I have an Associates Degree I can't use and a student loan. ECPI worst decision I ever made. Don't you make it.
Don't go to ECPI/MCI University they are the biggest joke in the world. The administration team and academic dean are nice to your face but behind the scenes it isn't what you signed up for in the beginning. I had to apply for financial aid and they were really quick about that process but in the end I didn't recieve anything no degree! Main reason why is because the school broke their contract with me as the student also they don't tell you that you only get three chances to pass your externship and if you don't pass that then you ultimately are dropped and failed the area of study (No repeating). I don't even know how they can still be operating along with recieveing goverment financial aid.
This is the WORSE SCHOOL EVER. I was having issues with math (SUPPOSABLY beginning algebra). Ended up sick two days. So I continued to do my assignments then made the mistake of asking my teacher for my grade AFTER turning in like SEVEN ASSIGNMENTS AND GRADE NOT UPGRADED IN A WEEK. SHE made it a point to tell everyone in the class that she graded papers at her own convenience when she had to open assignments back up for people who were out sick. I was PISSED. I had already contemplated quitting as I wasn't catching on or understanding the math. I had sent the head over the MA program SEVERAL emails expressing my frustration with the teacher and class in general. NOT ONE THING WAS DONE TO TRY TO RECTIFY THE SITUATION. SO I QUIT. And now they think I'm suppose to still pay them for a semester after LESS THAN FOUR WEEKS. I THINK NOT. And not to mention one of the days we didn't even have a teacher. This place is a joke. I would not recommend my worse enemy to go here. It's ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN AWAY FROM THERE IF YOU'RE EVEN CONSIDERING IT. THERE'S NO CARE, NO COMPASSION, THEY JUST DON'T CARE AS LONG AS THEY GET THEIR MONEY.
