"I finished and graduated from everest in 2007, i was an ambassador, and thought that everything would go perfect after that... I was wrong! Now I'm in debt so deep u can literally dive in it, and now i wish i never went there.. so my advice is think twice"

"I've read every one of these reviews and am honestly shocked that there are so few recommending the school. Then I remember all those people who dropped out of class half-way through their first month. I personally believe you need to do your fare share of research on the school you are going and more importantly which field. I chose medical assisting because right now, the medical field is BOOMING anywhere you go! I attend the Kalamazoo Institute in Michigan and I couldn't have made a better choice. I have an amazing teacher who knows her stuff and genuinely look forward to going to school. I put forth the time and effort though! This crap about this person with a gpa of 3.5 is crap, everest doesn't do their gpa's like that. The crap about having unqualified teachers, is just that, more crap! If you look at a job add for everest it says that you must have 3 years experience in the field! On to MY experience at everest. Have I seen trashy people who have no business there? ABSOLUTELY! Are the majority of students foul mouthed, inappropriate and unprofessional? ABSOLUTELY! However, it is all about YOUR willingness. If you give up half way into your first mod you have NOBODY to blame but yourself! If YOU put the effort into learning what is in your text books and STUDYING the appropriate material then you WILL go somewhere. I am in my 6th mod, I am an ambassador, and I have a wonderful class of peers who all look forward to going to class and learning. Its how YOU make it."

"I started attending Everest for Dental Assisting in July 2009. I really was excited when I went in, took a tour, and got signed up. Wow, did that take a turn for the worst. I was there for a month (I think I gave it a fair chance, and a fair amount of loan money..) and for the majority of class I sat. Yes, simply sat there. I finished my work within an hour of getting there and the teacher barely was in the room - unless there was a hands-on activity. I felt cheated and lied, and I made the decision to withdraw and pay the $2,500 to get out of there. I'm now attending a REAL college and am much better off. Please reconsider before going to this school."

"I was a student at Everest in Gahanna Ohio for MA, I was also 5 months pregnant. Through the course I had to leave twice because of complications with my pregnancy. I had a 3.4, went everyday, did all of my work and was very excited to graduate and stat my career, however they had a different plan in mind. When I tried to return to school they would not allow to come back at all. They said I with-drew too many times!!!! I was about sick to my stomach, because they still want me to pay for my schooling!! Please do yourself a favor and do research on fly by night schools. If it sounds too good to be true it usually is. Good Luck out there!"

"I would like to start off saying that everyone that has written horrible reviews about Everest probably did not try very hard there! I have a week left starting today, and I already have my externship set up and a future job. SO that says something about the school. Secondly if you are writting bad reviews have you looked at yourself in the mirror? Do you have visible tattoos? Do you take care of yourself? You have to remember that you are working in the medical field if you do not look professional or speak correctly then your never gonna get hired! All of you are talking about the instructors well I would like to know what schools that you guys are going to?? Everest Institute has one of the best teaching staff there is! All of the teachers are way over qualified for the job! I have friends in almost every field there and i have not heard one bad thing about and of the staff. So if your going to talk negativly about programs and schools make sure that you state which ones, Because not every school is the same! I am so happy that I put my money into Everest because if i didnt I would not be where I am today!!!!"

"This so called school is a joke!!! I was told that I can change programs without a problem to just find out it was a lie. After they told me it would not be any kind of problem I come to find out there is a gap in the loans and that I have to pay almost $4000.00 before I can even sit in class. Who can come up with that kind of money? Then later I come to find out I have to pay $5500.00 for a only a month and a half of classes that I attented. Please save your money and go to a college that is worth. They told the credits there can be tranfered to other colleges to just find out they are not. Please like I said save your money and time!!!"

"Hello everyone. This school is a very bad choice. I did attend the school for pharmacy. The people writing these great reviews keep saying that we have these problems because we DIDN'T come to class. I never missed any class, but felt like I was in high school while I was there. The point I am making is that I worked very hard and did NOT have 2. People that NEVER came GRADUATED. There are some very unqualified people out there with these diplomas. Be careful! Don't waste time or money."

"Honestly when I read these reviews, they make me laugh. Everest is a terrific school. I can guarantee there is whole other side to these negative stories. You should probably get your facts straight before you start talking negatively. There isn't a single teacher here that isn't qualified. They have to have 3 years plus experience as an LPN or RN to be a MA instructor. Also, the school does not cost $25,000.00. What i have to say to those of you who have something bad to say is apparently you are not coming to class. It's easy to point the finger at someone else when you need a reason to account for why you aren't successful here.You have to show up and keep up with your homework. The teachers will do everything to help you be successful. Good luck finding that elsewhere. Why don't you try OSU. Let's see if they give a darn if you show up. Teachers at Everest actually do care."

"I went to school.And entered the massage program. the Teachers were not good they did not help you prepare for the state boards.and half the students that go in to take the state boards fail.So you spend all that money learning. And than go take the State boards fail it. you are out of luck because you cannot work in that field.So What do you do. I think you should be able to work in some aspect of the profession. This school is not worth looking at."

"I went to Georgia Medical Institute which is now Everest Institute. I was lucky enough to have a fabulous teacher and that was the only reason I am a good massage therapist. The school is absolutely horrible and they abuse their teachers in that the teachers are reprimanded and/or fired if they lose students. Some students are not intellectually equipped to be in the medical field with all the latin verbage and other things that must be learned in order to pass the certification tests. Anyone can get into the school because the entrance exam has questions like, "what is 9 + 3?" and "what is this a picture of, a cat, bird, dog or squirrel." Once you are in the school, if you can't keep up, the entire class is slowed down to wait for the person or people who are having trouble. Please find other reviews online about this school before wasting your money on the tuition."
