"In the Television Production program we didn’t touch on half the things in the syllabus. And I’m technically supposed to graduate in couple a weeks. This entire experience has been me telling myself it’ll get better, but our equipment was outdated and falling apart. Made sent as to why the tuition was “cheap”. For what I paid and what I got I can easily say this wasn’t worth my time. Cert or not"

"Do Not Go To This College. This is a terrible and unorganized Techincal college. I signed up for Pastry course in Aug of 2023. I was joyous to start the class. But that joy was removed very quickly once the class started. The instructor is terrible, and unorganized. She is always on her phone. She is never willing to help you. I simply want to withdraw from the course. But I think it's too late. I'm just super disappointed and frustrated."

"McFatter is the biggest scam and a JOKE! You will regret ever attending this school just like I did. They deliberately construct these courses in a way to fail you which results in repeated classes and more money in their pockets. Beware of tests EVERY DAY in your first course for nursing. There is a line between difficult, and EXCESSIVELY Difficult, and they chose to be excessively and unnecessarily difficult. Nursing school itself is not easy! But when you’re giving students tests everyday (literally everyday, they give us a chapter to study and we take a test on it the next day) how do you expect them to pass with flying colors?!?!?? You are teaching future nurses!!! It is important that you teach them and test them on the material while also giving them a reasonable about of time to study it, that way they are able to RETAIN AND REMEMBER the information!!! How do you learn and memorize material in literally less than 24 hours and take a test on it?!? You will forget everything you learned either way because you’ll be studying and stressing over the next test the following day. Not to mention in the first block if you don’t pass the first 9 tests with a 70% in total in a span of 2 weeks, they make you start the course over again!! The first block is 10 weeks but they decided it was appropriate and necessary to have students study for 9 tests based on new chapters in a span of 2 weeks. To my friends with financial aid!!!! BEWARE!!! If you fail those tests 2 - 3 weeks into school you will be expected to pay the school $600+, plus Pay for your tuition if you decide to try again! You’re expected to pay this $600+ because you didn’t reach the required hours to continue receiving financial aid! Hence why I say they set you up to fail early and dip into your pockets! I know most of you reading this probably aren’t going to listen to these words I have typed, but trust me.... you might want to listen. Be very careful and study hard! Don’t be afraid to ask about the teachers and the syllabus before you really commit to this joke of a school. Good luck!"

"Mc Fatter Technical College is a joke. A complete waste of time. Mc Fatter prides themselves on having students to repeat their courses 3 and 4 times over. They are one of the least expensive schools for nursing which is why people attend and keep trying. However their program is designed for you to FAIL. I would hope this review would help someone, because it's honest an true. Don't be fooled by the cliche "Nursing is difficult" Sure it is, but Mc Fatter deliberately makes it even more difficult. Instructors seem to hate the essence of students attending. If you're doing well, they up the antics. The Director tells the instructors their test are too easy. So they have to make them even more difficult. Some may read this review and still give Mc Fatter a try, only to find the memory of this read stuck in your mind when it all comes to light."

"This was an excellent experience. The instructors were amazing! I had Jay Gunsten and was overly impressed with his level of knowledge and how much he cared. There were approx 10 instructors total and all were excellent. Excited for what's next to come. The classes were great, the test were definitely tough but I passed my National EMT exam on the first try so they def prepared us."
