How is this school still in existence? I attended there two years ago....I am currently looking for work because the place they send you to for work is usually someone who is on thier way out. Can't believe I paid so much and still owe a student loan!!!!! for nothing.
I have going to this for a while and I hate the adminstration. I have a son and attend night classes. I applied for a refund check for day care. After 3 months I called my school and they kept saying I was approved. I called the cherry hill campus and they told me it was never processed!!! I hate the ppl in adminstration and the front desk. Dont go to this rip-off school! I am just getting a certificate and I am paying 16,000. wow.
I went to this school because it was a good location and it was very nice. I was excited to go there because I thought it could push me into the medical field. However, it did the complete opposite.
For the first 2 months we (my class and I) typed on a computer. From 6-10pm all we did was learning to type. For me and half of the other students in the class this was a waste of time. Reading from a book and typing however many words per minute didn't seem to relevant to the job/education.
Also, there was a time when there wasn't a teacher for us. They either quit or just called out. We were supposed to take a 20 min lunch break from 7:30-7:50pm that turned into a 2 hr lunch break.
They didn't teach and when they did it was more about what they were doing this weekend rather then what we should be learning. One teacher, Mrs Beilecki was one of the teachers out of the 10 that actually did teach and did care. We only had her for a short period of time though. It was so stressful to know this is taken up so much time and we are learning nothing.
I was "supposed" to graduate in March 2009 but then it got changed to July 2009 and no one contacted me and no letters were sent out to me so I never actually walked down the isle. They don't help you with job placement. I know many people that have had the same problem as me and my fellow class members. I DO not recommend this school to anyone.
I can't stress enough just how HORRIBLE this school is!! I am soooo embarrased to say that I went there. I could list 100 reasons why not to go here
I attended evening classes at Prism Carrer Institute. I really don't have anything positive to say about the experience. As far as attendance - people come late and sign in as if they have been there the entire time, and while staff and administration are aware of this, I sign in and out for my truthful hours and end up staying 3 months longer than the rest of my class so I can make up hours. Rediculous!
Just so they can say my butt was in the seat! We went through several teachers, and were at one point without a teacher for about a month, but again, our butts must be in those seats, even if we aren't being taught. I elected not to have the school help me find a job that I simply am not prepared for. The director of the school asked me why I didn't have interest anymore, to which I replied, " I do not feel as though the education I received here is sufficient enough to go out into the work field and feel competent about what Im doing." The reply.."Where ever you get a job, you have to learn the way they do things." so, I ask...why am I going to end up paying over $20,000 to go and learn on my own. Total waste of time and definately a waste of money. I absolutely DO NOT recommend this school to anyone. All I want is my money back....we all know that won't happen.
its crazy how they have students that have criminal records that damn well know they cant get a job and still allow them to get in to the school for classes. They should be sued for everything they got just because they don't tell the students if they have records they wont get hired any where
Overall I was very diappointed with this school. They constantly stressed professionalism and that is the main thing this school lacked. My last instructor could careless if you learned anything at all. This instructor made everything very difficult and was very negative. When I complained to the campus director they did nothing and back this instructor all the way.They even promoted this individual. The program was very unorganized. You never knew what class you were going to next. There was always an issue with receiving a textbook for your class.
I wish I never attended this school.I paid too much money. I felt like I was at the zoo vs a tech school.
PLain and simple dont go!!! i graduate almost a month ago n still didnt get set up with my extern!!! And the eduation is so unorganized and what i mean by that is you dont really learn anything...and they dont give you the books you really need like the ICD-9 books because there to much money haaaa!!! and im paying 6,000 to you for whaT??
I currently attend the Cherry Hill Campus of Prism in the Medical Assistant Program. I hold a 3.96 gpa; My first couple months at Prism i had no complaints. Now i am suppose to be finishing school October and i am not the least bit satisfied. I have learned from all my teachers i feel like i have recieved a good education.
BUT, my last week of Phlebotomy the director had to come into the class for over an hour just to try and figure out what classes we need next and where everyone was going. I have no idea what class im going to on monday! My main problem is the new Externship Cordinator..that is her job title.
They told us in our orrientation how the students with the highest grades will have oppertunities at hospital but now when i ask the Cordinator she said she cannot do that. I have been in her office 3 times and still have not recieved any information regaurding externship. I refuse to finish classes and sit around until SHE is ready to extern me, there are only 5 students externing at the same time. I love the friends I made, and the teachers are good as well, but the new externship cordinator is a NO, as well as the confusion with the schedules
