Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2010
"I began on-line classes with PCI in 2009. In the very first week, I observed errors in the definitions of anatomical terms and pointed them out to the staff at the school. They did not send out a student wide e-mail advising of the errors until week 6 to the student body, taking these same courses. 2) The text books had additional editing errors, as there were entire paragraphs that had evidently been cut and pasted into the middle of a sentence on a topic entirely unrelated to what they had pasted. You would be reading a sentence and mid way in it, another had been pasted. Causing the paragraph as a whole to make little to no sense. 3) The text is not written in proper form; meaning it does not build on your knowledge from one topic to the next. It has poor flow. Nothing like what you are taught grades 1 - 12. 3) They fired the super intendant of the Medical billing and Coding department, my enrollment advisor and all of my teachers, during the 10 months I was there. They advise the staff and students that the school was growing. Why then would you not hire more staff vs. firing them during the middle of a class. Not a singal teacher ever appeared in the assigned time chat discussions and students were discouraged from chatting with each other for assistance. 4) They charge 14K for no teachers. I was teaching myself and a 4 pt. student, with computer generated exams that were grading incorrectly. And always referred to the success coordinators (though kind and gd hearted individuals), knew nothing about my courses and did not have access to the books or exams to see what I was talking and asking about. Told me, "you seem to understand the information from what I can tell per what you have been sharing with me." 5) The teachers (the one min. you may have to catch one before they were fired, explained they were being fired, because the school was growing). Who thinks that makes any sense? 6) I have since learned the school changed it's name after having been previously sued by 19 students who took classes in person at the school and said the teachers would give assignments, then leave the classroom. The students won the law suit. 7) I want a refund. I do not feel I should have paid for anything but the books, given the obvious fact that I had educated myself. 8) Who needs success coordinators when you are paying $14K? That should be more than enough motivation in itself. If anyone learns of a an active lawsuit to get bk what you loss, please post here and let me know. 9) I too did not receive help from them in passing my licensing exam or getting a job and it is now Nov. 2013. What does that tell you? I have had a couple other jobs, but they were temporary and I was laid off and unemployed when I took the courses."
