Okay so I left the school.. never once took out a loan for this school but guess what they forged my signature on paper work n now I owe money that I didnt even take out.. thanks a lot for putting my name on paper work I didnt sign.. ps you can take class for 6 week in va to become a pharmacy technician n only pay a couple of hundred.. how the hell do you think I owe you $25,000 .. such a scam of a school ..
This program helped me gain employment in my career field while still attending!! UMA helped me manage my time to stay determined while caring for a large family, working and continuing my education! This opportunity still feels unreal! The advisors and staff communicate effectively and timely, and the curriculum is beyond manageable. My family is very thankful for UMA!
My review of (UMA) ULTIMATE MEDICAL ACADEMY is that when I first starting out at this university in 2016 as an online student everything seemed great, I had the opportunity to work with great learning instructors who were very informative and knowledgeable in assisting me with learning material and inquiries relating to my coursework in pharmacy math and calculations. At the time I felt inspired and it felt good to have the guidance and support of my experienced instructors, but, after a short while into 2017 all of a sudden that changed the university had cut the pharmacy learning labs indefinitely without warning, or notice which drew up some big concerns to me as a loyal student trying to exhaust all resources in me gaining the required skills to graduate and earn my degree but shame, shame, this university has truthfully robbed me of my tuition, I am not getting the best education that I am paying for, and I'm am furious with this university I want to know what is my tuition going towards, and what is the means of this. This university had taken away one of the most valuable resources to me that was meant to assist me in growing as a student and professional, this is tragic to me and now my overall experience I hoped for from this university is not close to what I expected. But what I especially hate about this place is working with the academic advisor they tend to lack diplomacy and knowledge in accurately maintaining a positive student-advisor relationship. I do find that the university is deficit in a lot of areas and that organization is their biggest sum, they're so unorganized and it's so extreme that you will question your decision of why choosing UMA was the best choice, to begin with, and after learning about the character of this university it will be upsetting big time!. My only positive experience I have had at UMA is having the pleasure of work with the greatest instructors there Mrs. P. and A. H. other than that I would definitely say that this university surely needs a big upgrade in staff, administration arrangement, and professionalism because right now it is a big headache and very unorganized.
LET ME START OFF BY SAYING THAT I JUST STARTED UMA. AND PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY DO NOT I REPEAT PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. THEY ARE TERRIBLE. MOST OF THE GOOD REVIEWS ARE FROM THEIR OWN DEPARTMENT. I CANT TELL YOU HOW DISGUSTED I AM WITH THIS SCHOOL. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO ELSE WHERE. I AT FIRST READ THE REVIEWS TOO AND THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE THEM A CHANCE. WRONG!!!! AND I SERIOUSLY REGRET IT. I WISH I WOULD HAVE STOPPED AT THESE REVIEWS AND CHOSE SOMEWHERE ELSE TO GO. THEY ARE LIARS, THEY RAISE YOUR TUITION WITHOUT TELLING YOU AND THEN SAY THAT THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO DO IT WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. DON'T DO IT PLEASE ONE STUDENT TO THE NEXT. WHEN I TOLD THEM A MONTH LATER THAT I WANTED TO DROP OUT THEY THREW EVERY EXCUSE THAT THEY COULDN'T TRANSFER ME TO THE DEPARTMENT THAT HANDLES MATTERS LIKE MINE. I TRIED CALLING BACK TO GET SOMEONE ELSE THEY WILL PUT YOU ON HOLD TO READ THE NOTES AND THEN SAY OH IM SORRY THAT DEPARTMENT IS NOT AVAILABLE. LOL. THEY ARE A JOKE. AND IT WONT BE LONG BEFORE THEY ARE SUED. IF YOU WANT TO GET STOLEN FROM, LIED TO, STRESSED OUT, THEN BY ALL MEANS THIS IS THE SCHOOL FOR YOU. BUT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE THE HEADACHE THEN DON'T GO. AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME GO ON FACEBOOK TO THEIR WEBSITE AND YOU WILL TRULY SEE HOW CRAPPY THEY REALLY ARE. PEACE AND LOVE FOLKS.
I completed the Pharmacy Technician program and went on to get my Associates Degree through UMA. I was able to fit both programs into my schedule while working full-time and raising my daughter. It was a struggle, but UMA made it possible for me to start a career and provide a better life for my family. They even set everything up for me to interview with a new and rapidly growing independent pharmacy, which landed me a great job as a compounding tech.
I was an online student at UMA. The advisers were very friendly and very helpful. I wish I could have met them all in person. I no loner use my degree tho bc the state that I live in does NOT except online degrees. So I now have over $14,000 in student loans on something I can't use. When going for online programs, make sure your State Board excepts the School and or Online schooling in general.
I started school at UMA in may of 2016 and so far I love my classes. They're not too easy but they aren't too hard either. I love my instructors. The only problem I have is that I can't ever get ahold of my student advisor for any questions I have . I always catch her machine which I always leave a message and never get called back. They never call me to see how I'm doing . other than that, ultimate medical academy is awesome. And the person above who said its not an accredited school, where are you getting your info dude?
Waste of time! The company you work for will train you On their operating system, none are the same! Having your certification is enough! The classes were not challenging at all. The Book was very helpful regarding the industry, the classes were irrelevant.
