It's so sad that an institution offering higher education uses commercials with graduates praising the school, and using improper grammar to do so. For instance, "if I wouldn't have went back to school". Am I the only one who cringes to hear the English language so misused? Especially when education is what you're advertising. Bad,bad,bad.
Proper grammar should be a top priority when it comes to getting ahead in today's rat race. It seems that someone in charge of advertising should be more on top of things. These adds are at the very least, an insult to the intelligence of the American student.

I received my Associates Degree from Everest College in Phoenix, AZ in July 2008 and I am back getting my Bachelors. I called ASU to see if I could join their school and my degree was 100% accredited and transferable. The thing to remember about this college is that it is a Corporate College. Meaning it is run by a corporate office who over sees many other schools and they have a beuracracy issue. Good school over all

Everest is just a huge money pit. I was enrolled for four months before they notified me that my financial aid didn't go through. They called me and harassed me saying that i owe them $8,000. The financial dept. at Everest just assumed i would be able to pay out of pocket since my financial aid didn't go through. They are very rude and they only want money. DO NOT ENROLL AT EVEREST!!!!

Everest College sucks. It's 5 months since my graduation and I haven't had 1 interview as promised by the school prior to my signing the dotted line. Then I asked them about that and they denied it and gave me the run around. I now have no job and bills coming out of my behind. Now I owe about nine thousand dollars not including interest. Luckily some of the $14000 was covered by grants, but I still owe so much. My 1st teacher was awful and I had to change classes. Then I finally graduated and they tell me I owe $700.00 to the school before I can get my diploma. Mind you, this $700.00 was suppose to be covered by one of my loans but I guess the full amount of the loan didn't go through and they didn't tell me until I was suppose to be finished. So now I'm done with school, I finally have my diploma along with extra payments to the school I wasn't suppose to have. And now my loan bills are coming. What a waste of my money and time. Don't Go To Everest College! I'm sure some people find jobs, but more people don't then do.

Everest College is over-rated and way over priced. The Everest in Phoenix wants $333 per credit hour. They have a nice facility but talking to the admission reps etc is like dealing with a car dealership.
They are hustlers and want the $$$ at any cost. If you are looking for a post-secondary college I would look into Brown Mackie College in Phoenix.
Brand new facility. Brand new equipment. State of the art. I start classes there on May 4th.

No problems at Everest so far -- I've had some good professors, and you have to study hard and do some work on your own, but a little self-motivation goes a long way! Everest promises a job placement program that will help get students out there and noticed after graduation, I'm looking forward to that!

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Everest College. At the time I attended it was called Skadron College in 1998. I had no problems finding a job or keeping a job. It depends on the adult learner. Alot of immature students attend and expect an automatic diploma or certificate. No! You need to earn it. Hard work and determination is the key. As for the tuition price...consider it a convenience fee. I needed something fast...so a 4 year college was not suitable for me. I would pay the price for the convenience of class schedule and a career in 8 months...anyday! Only lazy people complain about everything. They feel that people owe them!

Did lots of research before I decided to attend Everest College Phoenix. The school is not a vocational/tech school, it is a regigionall accerediated priviate post secondary college. The program training was very fast, lots of hands on training with knowledgable instructors. Career Services Department assisted with job leads, interviewing skills etc.... I was given the tools necessary for me to begin my new career and had to do some foot work myself. That meant submitting my resume, attending job fairs, showing up for interviews, contacting career services rep during the week to get feedback. For my fellow posters who conitinue to complain...We are responsible for our own success...What are you going to do about it? This school believed in me, until I believed in myself. My life was changed and I have seen ity change my fellow students lives too.

everyone says the jobb problem let me tell you guys, job is always based on the luck of the person and how hard you try to look for job, some people can find job
within 2 days, because they use the whole 2 days to look for job, examplse if you spend 8 hours a day for 2 days jus to look for job, the chances are you will find a job becuase your utilizing your time just for one thing, if you just going to call and send your resume to just 2 or three companies, you wont get a jobb, you should flood your resumes to companiess for 8 hours a day since you have no job you can use that whole time doing that and i gurantee you, you will find job with very reasonable time frame other than that you jus being lazyyy, you think you paid this much for school andthe companies should call you lol good luck, people with barely any education have good jobs becuae they make links at placess and knows how to look for jobs properly,its proven fact, 80% are the jobs are with references and not education or how your resume looks on paper its words of mouth, wish you best luck all of you with job of your dream.

Having read many of the complaints, I agree with the fact that individuals must work hard to achieve specific goals in life. But on the other hand, achieving goals can only be achieved with the proper instruments. A person must research, and do the homework, before they choose that instrument of success. I also agree with the commercials that represent the college in an adverse manner. Grammar should be of the utmost, and appearances should be of professionalism, and not gangster dressed individuals who obviously could not yield a job if they were to present themselves in an interview in such attire. Good luck to those who have sacrificed.
