EVEREST IS A FRAUD DALLAS TX - 12/12/2014
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014
"EVEREST IS A FRAUD ! THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSE TO ENROLL NEW PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY'RE IN DEBT. I WOULD RECOMMEND GOING TO A COMMUNITY COLLEGE !!!!! WE NO LONGER HAVE A SECURITY GUARD BECAUSE EVEREST FAILED TO PAY HIS COMPANY FOR FOUR MONTHS. WE COME TO CLASS AND DO HOMEWORK ONLY ! THE TEACHERS DON'T EVEN PAY US ANY MIND. IF THE TEACHER GETS MAD AT YOU, THEY THREATEN TO LOWER YOUR GRADE."

"First off Everest is a waste of your time and your money. I went to Everest in 2008 because I wanted a quick career change I was will still am I CNA at that time 7 years I wanted to make more money so I choose Everest because I had great luck with my CNA class 6 weeks 800 dollars I made all that money back and sum so I was like lets do it again. I was lied to from the time I walk into the door til about January 2009 when I called into the office to complete a new fasa that's when i realize the truth of this school I submitted my fasa in the office financial aid sent me a letter as they do with all submits that when I found out I had 5500 left over in my account I called financial aid they told me the school has the money so I went to my school and I ask for my money they were acting like they don't know anything about so I called financial aid on my phone and the lady told them I have over 5500 that is owed to me and they have less the 3 weeks to give me my money. at that point in time I informed financial aid how many people have they stole money from over the years because so many people don't open mail or respond to letters for example their was 28 students in my class at that time 8 of us got money back because of the new fasa between us 8 in one class we got back 12,000 now think about this there are 10 classrooms on this campus if there is 30 students in each class and each class has 8 people getting a refund that's 120,000 that school would of kept in their pockets if I never opened my mail not to mention at that time it cost 15,500 for the 8 month Medical Assistant program that means 4,650,000 dollars was paid to the school and they wanted the extra 120,000 form who ever financial aid paid extra im just saying shady ain't it. so I went to every classroom in Eagan campus and told my classmates if you graduate this may2009 and you have done a new fasa for the 2009 year they got your money go get it so many people went in the office requesting money that they close the office claiming a maintenance problem people where walking up to me telling me that they getting back 1000 to 6000 dollars from this school. Everest is a joke your diploma or AAS or bachelor degree don't mean shit just like that the paper its printed on. I'm still in school only this time I went to a real collage I figure I should go for what I want so criminal justice major graduate next fall 2015 please please please know what you paying for and make sure you really want it or you'll be like me fighting to improve justice for all"

"I attended everest institute in southfield, Mich and from my first day of walking into this school and starting my journey with Everest seemed to be wonderful...the adimissons staff were friendly as well as the rest of the staff working there, teaching or not. I went through my full program before I began to have problems with the school...I got up to the point where I was completing my externship and we were told that there would be help setting us into job placement which I was excited and looking forward to all we need to do was go see a counsoler for that. I made an appointment and met with a lady by which she had all my information showing how I was an honor student every mod and never late...after meeting with her all but 5 minutes she told me to call back the next week and see what she had for me...called the next week (3 times) and could not reach her...as I'm getting for graduation I am constantly trying to reach this counselor that is suppose to set me up with a job and am never able to reach her or get help from anyone else that she us working with...why can't I get any help??? Because I have graduated already, the job placement service is for students that have not graduated yet...anyways long story short, I never was placed with a job by Everest Institute regardless of the model student that I was and my persistence to get help with getting a job through the school, I tried and tried for years on my own to get a job as a MA on my own with no success. My time and education with Everest Institute has been a complete waste of time energy but most of all, my money."
