Everest College Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (94)
I am so glad that I made a choice to drop out of this place, considering all the stuff I've heard in the news about shutting down campuses and students trapped in student loans. I had inherited a little money from a life insurance policy from a parent passing away, so I decided to use it to go back to school and I researched majors and schools and chose Criminal Justice and Everest, after watching their commercials. They did try to sucker me into financial aid, but as mentioned earlier I already had financial resources so I didn't apply for financial aid or student loans and paid out of pocket. After a few weeks, I had noticed some of the same tricks that this school was up to that other students complained about prior to campuses being shut down so I decided to pursue my education elsewhere and dropped out. When I dropped out I was told I wasn't allowed to come back. LOL! Good, cause I didn't want to go back, the whole point of dropping out HELLO! I was also told I couldn't transfer my credits which was fine considering it was the first quarter. I am now attending a different school in which I am about to graduate with my Associates Degree in two more months and my school's career services is already breaking their backs to help me find a job. I have already been on a few interviews and I am excited and hopeful. Now I heard that Corinthian Colleges had closed a lot of their campuses, leaving students unable to transfer credits, trapped in student loans, and without a degree/diploma. My heart breaks for those students and I pray that their situations will work out, will still be able to pursue the careers they have chosen, get their loans forgiven and these schools and their company will reap what they sow. This makes me glad that I got out of there before I ended up in the same situation these students are in or have been in. I think my mistakes I made when I chose Everest before was that I didn't do enough research about accreditation and student reviews and I just listened to my television, chose a career all because it sounded good, and picked the first school that appealed to me. I was also still very young, 20 to be exact, so I hadn't really had much of a grasp on what reality and the real world is really like and I never understood that a school can stab you in the back and screw you out of money and a career that you want. So my advice to people here is really do your homework on schools and majors, don't take the commercials word for what they promise nor believe every word an admissions adviser tells you, do your research on what your state requires to obtain any licenses or certifications that your field requires, and what a lot of employers want when it comes to what kind of degree you have and what school it is from before choosing a school and/or career field and stay away from this school.
Coming into this school was a very bad idea the instructor Dr.S threw papers at students if they get a answer wrong and he would get mad if your confused and would ask questions he explains things once if you don't get it he would hit you I would always feel and seen threads in this class he even said his said I'm a very angry man and crunched his fist he has anger problems and will continue telling people to never attend this school because nobody in this school seems to care
I'm already at my 1st month in this school and just dropped out the instructor dr.S seems to be nothing but a bully to his students I explained to the office what happened and they seem to not care don't recommend this school for anyone in Woodbridge, VA and now I still have to pay the full amount
Turn back around Verry bad school they would be fights and bullying in the class the teacher Dr.S doesn't like black, Spanish, Arab or any type of people that don't come from where he comes from would always call out random people in the class and make the class know that person isn't smart
Honestly worst school I ever attended the teacher for dental program Dr.S is rasist doesn't like anyone that's not from India and would yell in class if you ask him questions and lhe would lower the classes grade if he doesn't like you told the school all 7 months I was there but they never did anything they just care i about money and when you finish with your classes they don't want to help you find a job and they never pick up the phone
Please don't waste your hard earned money here. This school is a joke and an embarrassment to all other Colleges. I graduated in 2008 and still have NEVER seen my degree. Two weeks before i graduated I went to the finance dept to make sure i was clear to receive it. They informed me i was just fine and all schooling had been paid for. After three weeks of graduation I didn't not receive it so I contacted them and they gave me some B.S story on how I now owe $3000 in tution fees that they some how over looked. They will not send it to me until i now pay this. PLEASE do not attend this fraud of a school.
I graduated from this school back in 2014 and I have yet to find a job in the medical field. Im not saying it CANT be done, but can be extremely difficult. It is overpriced for a diploma program, but I was told the price before I enrolled so that's on me. I know plenty of people I did go to school with who has found jobs, so this is can be a individual thing, or based on being bilingual or more aggressive job seeker. I graduated with a 3.54, and still haven't been fortunate enough. I had SOME pretty good professors but not all. Career services is a joke. Do all your research before enrolling PLEASE! or if you're like me, and are looking into medical assisting, your local community college will probably be a better option. I hope i was of some assistance. and GOOD LUCK!
I graduated from here back in 2004 and it's now 2016 and I still have not found a job in the Medical Field! I'm thankful I have a job but all they did was lie to the students selling false hopes and dreams. Even one of their employees said the same thing!
I attend the school here in Brampton back in 2012 unfortunate the program and the co-op was not very successful and finding a job in that field did not happen you have to at least volunteer with more experience and I try to apply in hospitals and clinics and I have a hard time to get in. It says you need more volunteer experience. So I try to apply in agencies but they do not have only general labor and other industrial activities. I didn't graduate and now I owe lots of money to government and it was a waste of time . My CPR expire and I wont be able to renew it's too expensive and have do it all over again. Even my classmates too they cannot find a job in the medical field and some of them drop out because it was a waste of money... and now the time I drop out they closed it do to number of student drop out. Now all I want to do is pay off my student loan and change my career.... maybe I want to do something in writing stories or doing stuff in the computers. I just need to find my way out.of this situation....
Your there to pretty much teach yourself. If your not there to make friends & be talkative to others, your going to fail. They want you to be social like a high schooler. Good luck hearing your instructor in class. Good luck if your not social and you miss a day, to figure it out on your own, nobody will help you with what you missed. They will hold you back, make sure you fail at MOD so you have to retake them. They don't care about your financial situation. I haven't ate myself in over a week. If your a smoker & you accidentally forget your lighter in your pocket, you'll be accused as a drug addict. Talk a lot and be rude to others and this college will love you. If you go to try your heart out, you'll be made fun of, like I have been, was supposed to be my 4th mod, but I get to retake this mod due to a medical deal, I missed part of a week. Others go on vacation for a week or more & don't have to retake the mod. Shows be rude, talk a lot, you'll pass this college in a heart beat
