"I attended at Lauderdale Lakes location. I'm a Honor student with 3.5GPA. No help with finding a job after graduation. I been on tons of interviews and still no hired. The employers looking for candidates with more experience and bilingual. They screw me on externship. Did my duty but no hired because I wasnt bilingual. The manager. At my site told me that grad service know she request for an MA that bilingual but they sent me to the site anyways. Im glad I gain some experience but I was looking forward as being in my career as a MA by now. It been almost 3yrs w/o a job. I have to pay for student loans and have 3 kids who need my support. Worse school ever. I dont recommend this school to no one. They fail me badly?."

"Sure the school was great for the first classes everything I hoped for but after a few months things went down hill like fast. First it started with a teacher that didn't even try to teach the students it was so bad That I actually tough the class how is that possible you say. I just read the book in detail and got things moving after a week of sitting in our ass doing nothing. I noticed the the school was not even equipped to give proper hands on experience. Also some teacher quit and got new ones then more quit to the point that they hired there own graduates to teach medical stuff I was LIKE WTF is this. This was a huge red flag should not have stayed Other students left also competently disappointed I should have followed . But since I started this I wanted to finish I did after that the school called to sign in for more classes by saying that I am smart have a bright future bla blah blah. Later I noticed some teachers that were teaching 2 different classes at the same time I hoped that will not happen to me but it did this time she had to teach 3 different classes that time I learned nothing had had to help the newer students instead of doing nothing for the whole class. After I got out for the real world I noticed that I wasted my time and money in that school I could not do nothing right in the field I studied on so I left because its better than getting kicked out right. Now I have a huge 30+ thousand federal loan to pay and more loans that I will have to file bankruptcy for used up all my grants have nothing left. I really want to start a protest to help other students from the going to the school and I also want to die if I do it will be in front of that school I want the media to be there. PLZ DONT GO TO THAT SCHOOL AND IF YOU ARE THERE PLZ LEAVE NOW."

"The best advice I can give anyone looking into this school is to run and don't look back. I came to Florida career college to better my education and have a successful future . I was enrolled from one day to another and they made everything very easy. After some research and realizing their M.A.T program was going to cost me 21,000 something I decided it was going to cost me too much money for a technical profession. I attended this school for two days after I enrolled. First of all the teacher never showed up to class. We had two different substitutes both days. On the third day I decided to unenroll and explore my options before financial aid went through. The students that were already in this school told me it wasn't worth it but they were in school because it had already been past 30 days. When I came in to un-eroll they made it very difficult said they wouldn't consider taking me back if I wanted to come back and when it was time to speak to the director he avoided me and then yelled at me and told me he was disappointed in me took the materials they gave me and walked away. I felt very disrespected ."

"I'm embraced to say I attend Florida career college. My current employer still makes fun of me for attending. NOT WORTH THE MONEY! Worst mistake I could have made. Better off attending SPC. Don't let admission fool you, they are way over priced $19,000 for an MA degree"

"I honestly won't recommend this school to anyone! I am still attending it and have tried to drop out but they somehow convinced me to stay (mostly because I don't want to be home doing nothing and not want to stop what I have started blah blah blah) but now it's back on my mind to not come back for the next module, just trying to see how is the best way to get out. The teachers are great ppl and that's what motivates me to actually come to class, along with some friends I've made but I have to be realistic, the school only wants your money. They call you a lot during the first week of enrollment if you don't show up to class just so they don't lose a student (money). I wish I would have done some research before I got into this mess but now I'm stuck with a debt and I don't work so I fear if I leave now I would have to start paying my debt. Classes are mediocre, I don't feel like I really learn anything and I still pass with all A's. I don't feel like they test my knowledge to the best of my ability. Also the staff are so stuck up (most of them), they are all giddy with you when you enroll and then act like they don't know you the following week. I'm going to do some research on what my best plan should be to get out sooner rather the later, so don't be like me. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!"
