Harris School of Business Reviews - Certificate in Medical Assistant
Review of Medical Assistant Certificate Degrees
Do not waste your time with this place, they will promise you everything and get you nothing. My class waited till our second 5 weeks before we got most of our supplies, teachers all leave. Had two out of all that actually taught me something. You'll never get the job they say you will, career services does nothing to help. I have requested transcripts to be sent to my current college and almost 2 months later, they still don't have them. My advice to you is RUN LIKE HELL! Do not let them talk you into it with all their promises, nothing will happen. The only good thing I took from here was some great friends I made in my class.
I absolutely love the school not only did I finish school with all A' s. I got my certification before I even went to extern!! I enjoyed all of the staff they are awesome i learned some very good skills while i was there. If you really want to change your career I recommend going to Harris they treat you like family. If u want to be productive you have to want it you have to strive for the best. Harris school of business was a awesome choice I made and I wouldn't change it if I could.....
I am still looking for work!!!! I graduated in 2016, was told you'll get this job--just show up. Well I did, went in early, stayed late and the girl told me that the doctor never hires a student from HARRIS only uses them to file and do filing. When I called to switch sites I was told no. I spent 16k to learn to file. I am still at my previous job (cashier). They never call you back and all the good teachers are gone!!!!!!! This place is a joke and I am so very sorry I went to them. The girls on the westside was right--this place is a joke and only want your money. From what I hear, the teachers they have now are not real teachers, not one of them are certified or experienced. DON'T GO HERE!!! THEY ONLY WANT TO MAKE YOU PAY A LARGE STUDENT BILL AND LAUGH AT YOU BEHIND CLOSE DOORS.
Run!!!! These people are preditors. They prey on the poor and they will lie to you deceive you, tell you that are YOUR HARRIS family and as soon as they get ALL your money-no HELP or return calls, especially that ghetto b they have in career services. The school is so ghetto-from admission to the loud mouth director and the smart mouth short miserable person. I was told by a potentuial employer I should've went to another school--they WONT hire a Harris graduate--not the lie I was told. DO NOT GO HERE---YOU ARE BETTER GOING TO DEL TECH OR SOME OTHER SCHOOL BUT NOT THIS SCHOOL--THEY ARE CROOKS and you will be their sucker!!!!!!
I would not recommend this school at all, it is a waste of time and money. The school has no supplies, no working scales or appliances. All they worry about is getting there money. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT attend this school. I wish i did not waste my money on this school at all.
Graduated a few years ago and if you're reading this here's the breakdown. Some of the teachers (back then) are great but the education you get there is very basic. You do not get credit for any of the classes you take. You can take a full accredited program at MCCC which is down the block and it will cost you less than Harris. The only thing I got out of this school is phlebotomy. They tell you that you can make $19 per hour as an MA which is false, you start off at $12 and after 20 years maybe you will make $19. You may be able to get a job but for the price they charge for a certification it is not worth it. Instead try looking at MCCC or other accredited schools that you can actually use in the future if you plan on becoming something worthwhile (like St. Francis school of nursing). Don't rush into things until you do your research, I wasted $11,000 on this program and could not get a decent job for more then $13.50 per hour.
Currently attending this school and it SUCKS. Their definitely is a shortage of the amount of teachers that actually know what they are doing. If you get Mrs.Tarlboro/Mrs.Viv RUN. She is a cool person but she does not know how to teach. She puts words on the board, tells you to define them and that's going to be the test, meanwhile their is only 31 words on the board and apparently 50 questions. And when you ask about the rest of the stuff either she ignores you, or says don't worry about it. I'm pretty sure I should be worried about it especially if this is my future. One full class of her phlebotomy failed and her current class is failing all tests because they aren't learning anything. (She teaches you to draw blood with you non dominant hand) explanation enough....... When anyone goes to higher ups about her they won't do shit..... And this is not the only teacher like this....... Run for the hills
This place was not worth it... total joke learned nothing... feels like in a prision... school is not even worth one star.
Cherryhill, NJ Harris School of Business is defiantly a good choice. My instructors have been very helpful and caring and the staff well they are very informative and they know you and always put a pleasant personal greeting as they pass you in the hall. One downfall is SOME enroll just to go whenever they want and make it seem as if the school is bad however that is far from the truth maybe if they apply themselves 4 days a week instead of 1 day a week and miss the other 3 days they will benefit from the program offered. I say its only a few who like to play the foul card and thats because its obvious they can not apply themselves to what they signed up for so those few are the only ones who will not make it in the school or a place of employment. YOU!! have to treat this school as a job because it is IT IS your first step towards the medical field and patients will not wait on those who think time is at their leasure. For the most part those who are there taking this carreer choice serious are extremly helpful, friendly and will always greet you in a pleasant way. I have had a great time so far and I am looking forward to graduating in 2015. So approach this positive and Harris will give you the tools to success. Cherryhill Harris is a good start and its up to you to absorb it all and direct it towards your future. I read some of these reviews and everyone is entitled to their opinions but honestly most are from those who could not handle their choice like an adult. staff is wonderful students are amazing and the instructors are your key to the future and they will always be there for you.
I just recently started Harris in July. My first MOD was the best. Some work was difficult but the teachers who taught the class made sure everyone understood. Second MOD I had a previous teacher so i knew what to expect, the other class we had a new teacher and it was HORRIBLE !!! All they did was preach to the class about how we needed to act like adults and this and that when the teacher was the o e causing the most drama. Not only did we not learn anything helpful, we the class got talked to like we were a bunch of kids all MOD. Not only did the teacher disrespect us as adults she disrespected us as humans as well. She did not have any problems talking about our religion views, our personal life, etc. If a student tried to speak she would have a problem about that, if we chewed gum that was a problem, if we laughed that was a problem, if we breathed to loud that was a problem. But did I forget to mention this was a typing class !!! I just hope our next MOD is not this intense, I came to learn an education as an adult not be belittled or treated like a child.
