Prism Career Institute Reviews - Associate in Paralegal
This continuing educating program was a waste of time. I completed this course in 2009 and have not been able to obtain employment within this field. Went back to school in 2011 and none of my credits were able to be transferred. I restarted my education but unfortunately I cannot restart my debt. I am in debt for 20k for this program and there is nothing I can do with it. I can not even become credentialed under NALA because the course does not offer the basic eligibility requirements. They no longer offer this program and personally they should reimburse all attendants of the program. They offer lifetime job assistance and they have been unable to uphold this task.
I also believe that the Department of Education should be liable as well. The Department of Education should ensure that all technical schools be regionally and nationally accepted. This would ensure that credits received from the technical school are valid and people such as myself would not feel that I owe money for nothing!
The degree I received from the Prism Career Institute was not sufficient for me to obtain a position with a law firm due to the curriculum Prism Careers offered. I am in debt for $26K+ dollars and cannot use the degree. All schools approached after graduating, wanted to further my education, informed me that none of the credits obtained from Prism Careers where able to be transferred and I would need to start at the beginning to obtain the needed courses for the profession. The school also offered job placement but the only position they would come up with were McDonald's, Lowes, Walmart, etc. No dedication to this process from the job placement staff. If I could sue, I would!
Went to school around 2010 2011 stayed for two and a half years for Paralegal studies which they now no longer offer they were ghetto a rip off they cared more about the day classes then their night classes they never offered their Paralegal class internships to any law firms so I never got to practice what I learn which by the way was nothing towards the end they started making up classes that had nothing to do with the course they kept changing teachers and people who run them we were taught by so called teachers and lawyers who did not no what they were doing I did have one good law professor and that was Dave Kline he tried his best to do what he could so that we could get the best experience and get our monies worth but he could only do but so much. None of the people I graduated with got paralegal jobs I remember one time they lost their accreditations and was on probation I want to go back to school but I'm afraid that other schools would look at my transcripts and shake their heads I learned nothing from that hole in the wall and also I'm staring to wonder if my associates degree is even real .DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL GO TO A REAL SCHOOL BECAUSE I DONT EVEN CONSIDER IT TO BE A COLLEGE Its a playground for ghettoness I went to the one in Upper Darby PA stay away or you will regret it I sure am and I never did find a job what I studied for smh
DK has taught me everything that I need to know, and I feel positive about knowing what I need to know to succeed. DK has really prepared me for the real world, using actual cases and giving us opportunities to do meaningful things.
He is a motivational teacher and takes his time to make sure I knew what I had to know. He was the best teacher I had at Prism.
I graduated from Prism in February 2013. I studied in the paralegal program under the direction of Lawyer / teacher David Kline. Mr Kline was a very good teacher as well as a humanism. Dictating the rule of law and directing students to research information from Westlaw was very interesting
My experience of being a student at prism, as well as my being an elderly man of sixty, allows me to appreciate the way teachers handle their students in acheiving maturity, but more importantly,to prepare the younger students for the reality of the job market.I would highly recommend students to attend Prism Career Institute for a new beginning in the job market and then to transfer credits to an accelerated college program,for getting their bachelor degree.
Mr. David Kline and his supporting cast of teachers do a superb job at Prism and negative talk should be omitted.I say go to Prism and meet Mr. Kline, it may help you in the long run. You will enjoy the adventure.
I was in the paralegal program. Dave Kline, the evening teacher, was an attentive teacher who really knew his stuff cause he is a working attorney and he made it easy for me to understand. He was fair and non judgmental, and because of this he was fair to EVERYBODY. All my legal teachers were very educated and made me feel like I was learning from experts. What I learned has really helped me as I have continued my studies toward my bachelors degree.
I have had a lot of different legal courses, giving me a broad education. I have had more computer classes than I thought but I have used those skills in the work place.
The teachers are caring and one in particular, D K, has really given me a real experience. He gives us interesting assignments that really help me grow and he takes interest in us individually. D K does not teach out of a book, he teaches from experience, and that is key to being a good teacher. I am very pleased with the teachers I've had here.
I've been at this school since July of 2010. I think I have learned a lot and what I needed to know to become a paralegal, thanks to my legal classes with D K. His courses are challenging and make me think. D is a hands on teacher who gives me practical assignments from past cases.
Ive been taught lots of different classes, like real property, civil litigation, legal research, drafting projects, criminal law and other courses I found to be interesting. D K has always been there for me and is a really good teacher who has taught me so mcuh.
He makes sure every student knows the point he is making and understands the material. I am so lucky to have had most of my legal courses with D K.
