Sanford-Brown Institute Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (124)
I attend the philly campus and in the begining it was good i had some of the best teachers there which weren't many. As i started getting more into the program it got worse n worse. this school is a waste of money and time i am a student who works hard.its the instructors its like they hire people only off field experience vs. people with teaching digrees.
I am a MA student i want to go for ultrasound i heard the ultrasound program wasnt as bad i'm debating if i want to persue ultrasound there or somewhere else. there is too much bs at sanford brown. oh and when they get you in they dont tell u everything. they are constantly changing things and never inform the students. i can go on n on. Good luck to those who give it the benefit of the doubt.
I graduated from Sanford-Brown when it was UDS. I took the CVT course, I must say in defense of the school if you wanted to learn you will. The MA classes were just plain GHETTO!!! it's like they steered them to that course,my class was very professional, no one failed the course. I will say it WAS very expensive but i think worth it. Think real hard before you apply though it's a big decision to make.
Stanford Brown is a GREAT school! The professors truly care and work extremely hard to help us succeed, but YOU have to apply yourself. Our success in learning and in the medical work place is on us. The truth is the professors are doing their job but ask yourself are you doing you're part to succeed?
There are a lot of negative reviews on Sanford Brown. Being a former student, I can agree with most of them. But what people have to understand is if you want to be successful in the Ultrasound field, you are going to have to work hard to get what you want & you will have to be aggressive about it. We can blame others for our predicaments but you have to look at yourself & be honest and say, "did I do my best to get what I want"? I read all these negative comments & I laugh it off. I am close to my class & I know others from the next class that came in. People have graduated & found jobs. Now they are registered in their respective specialties. You have to work hard. When there is a setback, you can't blame others but you have to keep pressing on.
The school has many flaws. But it is what you put into it that will make you successful.
It doesn't surprise me that most comments are coming from MA students. It also seems as if no matter what state you are in, we have the same issues. I am a student in Atlanta and I do see some of the students not handeling themselves as ADULTS. The DMS and CVT programs you HAVE to be mature. College degree or prev. college credits is required. With anything it is what you put in to it.
The staff and financial office is all about them. Just Finish the MA program in Trevose PA. This is so True, what you put in is what you get. I put in and still has not received my CPR certificate nor my Diploma. Found my own extern site found my own job. They have a career center no help from them. I have a GPA 3.92 and applied myself very well. But the school don't do thier part.
Our programs are accredited and the price for the ARMDS exam is included in tuition (along with tutoring courses if needed.)
I've had teachers bust people for cheating, and not pass students for going a half hour over the 10 hours allowed to miss for each class. Maybe other campuses aren't as strict?
also nowhere guarantees you a job. my boyfriend graduated from a top college with a 4.0 gpa and still took him over a year to find a job. blame the economy not the school.
