Ultimate Medical Academy Reviews - Associate in Medical Office AdministrationSee reviews of all programs at Ultimate Medical Academy
They discriminate. They disqualified me for a 14 year old misdemeanor. I already have an associates with honors. What a shame they can't further my aspirations. They have wasted alot of my time. Don't apply if you have misdemeanors no matter how old.
I had the school help me find a job and im still with out a job, the jobs they are trying to place me at is not in my field, i thought when i m got my degree that i would be placed in a office or something but they jeep trying to pull me for jobs that i know for a fact i want get because my are is big on hands on and liscense, ile only get an inter view but thats as far as ile make it and the position their offering me is no more than 10 an hour. I told tge lady that i would like to find my own job i no longer needed their help and today my mom tells me that the lady called her phone. That is harassing, thats something you dont do. Great school but not good at job placing and they harass alot
Furthering my education at Ultimate Medical Academy is one of the best choices I could have made in my life. I am currently a 4.0 student, a member of the ABK, and also an Ambassador for UMA. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in a medical career. The staff is great and always just a phone call or email away ready to assist you.
If I could give UMA zero stars I would. I applied for my bachelor degree, with another college and was told during the transcript review that my associate degree is a diploma and UMA is not regionally or nationally accredited. I'm in debt up to my eyeballs. I do not have the funds to re-take my associate degree and my bachelor degree plus at my age, I do not want to graduate in my 50's. UMA states they are accredited and I do in fact have an associate degree, this came from a manager. UMA has blamed the other college saying that it is up to the individual college if they accept UMA credits or not. So four different colleges telling me the same thing about the accreditation and me having a diploma instead of an associate degree is every college's fault but UMA's. Career services is a joke they send you for jobs not even in your degree field. I graduated as a medical admin assistant and was being sent for jobs like a pharmacy tech and dialysis technician. UMA's response, well you use your degree in those fields. I was a paramedic, there is a major difference between a dialysis tech and a medical admin specialist. UMA always points the finger at everyone else, they refuse to take ownership of their own faults, like accreditation and career services sending you random jobs you are not qualified for.
UMA was the best decision that I have ever made in my educational journey. I have never been so satisfied with all the services that UMA offers us students. From start to finish, I have maintained a 4.0 GPA, Straight As, placement on the Deans List, acceptance into the ambassadors program, and placement with the Honors Society. I have worked very hard but if it was not for my instructors, advisors, and UMA I dont know if I would have made it. I am so happy and proud of all my hard work and look forward to my future.
First off let me start by saying I love this school. All of my instructors have been very helpful and my advisors have been even better. I am a few classes away from graduating and I cannot wait. I see all of the negative reviews and I honestly feel that everything is what you make it. Although they state that they will help with finding a job, interviewing, and taking the MAA certification, everything else is really up to you. Finding a job is not going to be easy but if you stay persistent and focus on what you really want you will get it. This school keeps in touch with you and they really encourage you to be the best. I am currently in the honor society and I am also an ambassador. So again it is all about what you make of it.
UMA is a great school I would tell any and everyone that wants to go to school either online or on campus UMA is the place to go. I signed up straight out of high school they had a high school program that they dropped but I was lucky to finish the high school program and go straight into college for my degree. The instructors call to see how you doing as well as let you know how your doing.
First of all I enrolled in this school because a former friend of mines was enrolled and I thought it was a good ideal note my friend didn't finish with this school because of their on reasons, let me say I'm 3 classes in and I have opinions of my own about UMA. First of all I feel like i have wasted a lot of money going to this school which in loans that I have to pay back, the reason I feel like this is because it took forever to get in contact with a instructor and by forever I mean forever. Also I just feel like this school is not legitimate and I tell you why I'm in a class now with an instructor who name is Dr. Magby no picture on this person no information on this person like other instructors and I just don't trust that it makes it's seems like it is a random person who is just giving out grades just because you complete the work rather it's wrong or right. I just think this school is out to just get money, I hope I'm wrong and I can use this degree in a professional matter. I worry that this is just a piece of paper that I will have that won't work for me.i graduate in 2019 and God willing I will write back and tell how all goes. Question does anyone who graduated from UMA with AAS in Medical administrative Assistant has this degree helped you in anyway with getting a job in the medical field? I hope that my feeling about this school being a scam are wrong and I can put my faith in them.
The school is good but the career services is awful. I had a baby at the end of my degree (unplanned) I choose to stay home, when I asked if we could close my case until I am ready to work I was told no in a rude way. They call all the time and email non stop I reply to every email and never hear back. The classes were great and helpful. If you know you are going right to work this is an awesome school but if you may have something come up this isn't the school for you.
UMA has given me the opportunity to accomplish my dream. I had an opportunity to finish my Associates in Administrative Medical Assisting online this year.My classes were online this gave me the flexibility to handle my personal life, work and school. The instructors were very helpful, knowledgeable. This is the best school I have ever attended, I do recommend this school to other new students looking for online courses in the medical field.
