"I started this program in July of 2014 I wish I didn't. The place is unorganized, the so called teachers don't know what their are talking about half the time. I did not get my books until the second week of class, in lab we never have the things we need. THEY WILL LIE TO YOU SO THEY CAN GET YOUR MONEY WHEN YOU FIRST COMEIN.NOTHING THEY SAY ISTHE TRUTH"

"I attended the Wilmington, DE campus and let me tell you that if I could go back in time, I would have chosen a totally different school to attend! The entire staff, whether they were instructors or not, were rude possessed the lack of knowledge when it came to financial aide, programs, scheduling, etc. They allowed me to attend school with the sense that my financial aide was handled, but in reality it WAS NOT!! They NEVER helped me find an internship and about a month later I found one on my own. After I completed my internship, I couldn't even get hired b/c I was NEVER informed that since I couldn't get a job in the state I worked in, MD, b/c I attended a school in DE. Not only that the school NEVER kept up with their records. They tried to fail me b/c I "Didn't complete" my internship and tried to send me 3 1/2-4hrs to Newark, NJ to complete it. They also promised to help me find employment. After 6yrs of calling and harassing b/c no one will hire students from that school I'm still waiting for help!"

"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."

"DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!! I am currently going there now and let me tell you I regret ever even coming here. I gave these motherfuckers over 14,000 dollars in loans and grants and still have to pay 8,000 dollars back after I graduate. Mind you you only get one uniform yes one uniform and my books came a week late from the first day. The school is so fucking ratchet it's just full of welfare mom's whoneed time so they can keep tthey're cash benefits and foodstamp benefits on. Please I am telling you personally do not go to this school unless you want to waste your time and your money go somewhere else don't be a fool like meand give these people your money because the only one that loses in the end is you."

"I went to Harris school in 2007. I went to the Harris school in Wilmington Delaware. This was the worst school. They pretty much accept anyone, welfare moms who don't want to work but have to either work or go to school/training program. The teachers are very rude also with very limited teaching experience. We never got uniforms, or stethoscopes. But we were never reimbursed for this we still owe the same amount of loan. I wish there was a way to have this loan forgiven cause I could have spent $8,000 going to a real school or community college."

"I seriously can't believe I almost went to that school can't believe that they didn't give me copies of none of the papers I signed. Thank god I was smart enough to tell them to cancel me. The dude was basically making me pick what I should study I really wanted to go for medical coding but he told me what he thought I want it. They really make u think they care but all they care about is money. & that's all there is. I seen half of the students were talking nonsense in the classrooms. The teachers weren't even teaching. It's super ghetto there I wouldn't even try to step a foot their."

"This school is the absolute worst!! Well I am sure there are others but so far for me this is the worst!!! My class and I sat in a room by ourselves on several different occasions with out an instructor maybe totaling a whole month worth of time if we add it all up. They sign you up and dotn even give you any papers of what you have signed ( what kind of mess is that and shame on me for not even asking) HINT HINT that's when I should have known things were wrong there. The instructors they hire are only there to get a check ( In that case they should have hired me to be an instructor ) one teacher I had was only worried about getting home to her husband and let the class know she had food stamps etc, hello we are in cherry hill a nice area and then we are trying to learn and they only thing we get is look at my pedicure, highlight this highlight that, and I have food stamps but drive a benz!! Now lets give a round of applause to that broad and just give her teacher of the year right. Ohh and lets see lets nor forget the 2 head women of the lovely (sarcastic) Cherry Hill campus. The 2 ladies whom have no idea what they are doing while one is trying to be a spy and searching for money to come in the other once is too busy asking the students ridiculous and inappropriate questions. It is very sad to say that there are only about maybe 2 DECENT teachers in the school. There is no reason why every time I ask an instructor something they say they don't know, the list can go n and on about this piece of shit nothing but a scam of a school which I will get to the bottom of how to get my money back from these bastards waste of a time school but it is sad how they can just sit and take the money of these people knowing how unorganized and full of crap they are! Ohh wait and the best part is for some reason there is a large majority of students whom think they are done with hours and then they suddenly have more hours to make up which I pretty much think is nothing but a scam for extra checks as while your on your intern your still enrolled in school so those bastards are still getting checks!!! SMFH the school is nothing but a scam!!!! PLEASE JUST RUN AWAY AND DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT OR GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT TO GO TO HARRIS!!!"

"This place is the biggest joke of a school ever. Out of the 4 teachers I've had so far 2 were a disgrace. You practically have to teach yourself. If you have Ms Woodard RUN!!!!! She only leaves you confused and dazed. It's obvious she has no clue as to what she is teaching or talking about. And regardless of the number of complaints they get on her they won't get rid of her because there are no other teachers out there who want to deal w Harris because of how disorganized the entire administration is. Save yourself."

"I was so excited about attending Harris and becoming a certified Medical Assistant. The first Mod was good, then it all went down hill. We had a person in the class who had kidnapping charges and other felony's on his/her record, and caused a lot of trouble with the class. Then, the second MOD was a pure nightmare. We did not get the books for our A & P and Medical Terminology classes until the last day of our third week. For most of us it was very difficult to learn, but that was not the biggest problem, the biggest problem was there was so much b@tching about the books, that we did not get anything out of our classes. After, hearing about all of the negative things about the school, (I still tried to keep a positive outlook), I started researching and found that I could attend a community college and receive an associates degree for only $5,000 less than I am paying Harris for a certification. I have meant the most interesting people in while attending Harris and the instructors are great, but they are not trained instructors (and they were not happy and let it be known). So, I would not recommend Harris, just because if you really want to be successful, you need to be able to learn and practice what you are suppose to be learning and not being distracted by all of the negativity."

"Have big dreams? Want to advance your career and make more money? Read all of the BAD REVIEWS before you incur almost $14,000 in debt. The cost for this so-called "school" isn't justified. You may get a $5,500 grant & wind up paying back the rest + interest for a career you may never have as the quality of the education you get here (where most of the teachers have admitted to "hating" school and not doing well even in high school). I'm disclosing the cost of the programs since you won't get anyone to reveal it over the phone. There isn't enough room here to list the MANY COMPLAINTS I have about this place. This Harris is located in upscale Cherry Hill, yet you'll feel you're in the GHETTO whenever you enter the halls or classrooms. Oh and watch that you don't trip over all of the STUDENTS SITTING ON THE FLOOR IN THE HALLS!"

"I went here expecting a quality education, instead this school is very unorganized and does not prepare you well for the work force. I am left with this huge college loan I have to pay back when I could have gone somewhere cheaper. Not to mention medical assistants do not get paid well. I am very happy with my job that I got but the school did not at all help me find my job. When I needed help with my resume because I had an interview coming up, they did not respond for 3 days, by then I had already had the interview. I could go on and on but I will just say that the school is completely unorganized, the education is not at all challenging, and I would not recommend anybody going here. Go to a community college if you want to be a medical assistant, or better yet, go to a community college with a major that will pay you well when you're done."

"Please don't waste your money on this school do your research first before considering attending this school. I attended some years back and I regret it. While the staff and all the instructors were really nice, I have to be honest for the money they charged you could have received a college degree. You are better off attending CCC or BCC and earn real credits that can be transferred. BCC offers many of the same programs that this school offers but much cheaper. I learned the hard way and went back to school and now I'm working on my masters in chemical engineering. I took the time out to write this review because I was contacted by them to do a "where are they now" review. By no means did I want them to think they had been instrumental in success but that was the purpose of me being contacted. So I decided to do my own review. The purpose of this review is not to say they are a bad school but is to say that there are many other cheaper options out there. That goes for pretty much all technical schools including the ridiculously over priced prism."
