I am a current student at Everest College, and i first want to say sorry for the bad experiences you all had to face. Fortunatley I dont have the same problems you do, i attend Everst in dallas tx. Yes there is are alot of people there that are ghetto and pwt but im there for a reason i dont care what their issues are i am there to learn and thats all ive been doing from day one. Im in my second month now and yes i have a different instructor,but me and my first instructor still talk and she still helps me even though i am no longer in her class.So far i am maintaining a 98% average, ive recieve 7 recomendation for the ambassadors program and i am about 4 months ahead on my computer lab work. I say all this to say it is what you put into it if you sit back and expect someone to spoon feed you then you are going to complain. I dropped out of school 6 weeks before graduation because my mom got really ill and i had to work and pay bills for my family. Everest paid for my Ged. They are going to provide me with the additional certification classes for free, all because i ask. So i dont agree fully on the statements being shown here because everest can be a life changing experience for someone and reading this page could change their minds completly.I dont think thats fair because some of you arent self motivated.

Well I reside in georgia and work at Philips Arena, where most of the students go to Atlanta Metro or Brown Mackie. One of my Co-workers went to Everest and completed it... Unfortunately, she could not find a job and a manaager at one of the places in which she applied, advised her to take Everest off her resume'. He stated it looks bad... To make a long story short she now attends Brown Mackie for the same exact thing she completed at Everest.

IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE LOCATION. I'M HAVING A WODERFUL EXPERIENCE, MY PARALEGAL INSTRUCTORS KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING AND I AM LEARNING SO MUCH THAT I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT MY CAREER. EVEREST COLLEGE ONTARIO METRO AREA IN CALIFORNIA IS WORKING GREAT FOR ME. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL. STAFF ARE INCREDIBLY NICE AND EVEN THOUGH I'VE HEARD A LOT OF NEGATIVE COMMENTS, IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING EVEREST IN ONTARIO METRO, YOU WONT REGRET IT.

I am attending Everest College right now, I'm on my six month, and I agree with you all. This College is just after getting people's money, they don't care about the students needs. I feel like I'm learning on my own, and I agree with the guy that wrote about the teachers giving us the answers for the test, how are we going to learn that way?. It feels like we are just memorizing stuff with out knowing the real meaning. I really want to know what should I do to not pay my 13,000 loan. I am not getting the education I'm paying for. College like this should not exist.I think we all should file a complaint report with the state, that way hopefully we don't have to pay for our loans and they'll refund the money to former students that already paid for their diploma.

I am about to graduate from everest college with my B.S. in criminal justice. It's a great school! My boss actually came to my school looking to hire students here. He hired me a year ago as a private investigator. I am still working in the field and will soon be licensed as an investigator. Everest is not for everyone, but it's great for people who have a different type of learning style. I CAN NOT learn in big classroom settings. I can't retain the information in that type of environment. Everest gives one-on-one attention some people need. Plus, not everyone has the opportunity to go to a state university, live in the dorms, not work for four years and have mommy and daddy send them money every few weeks. I have heard a lot of bad stories about Everest, luckily I have obtained a great job in law enforcement and it is all thanks to everest. Reserach schools before you make judgments.

That sucks for you. I am at Everest institute in Jonesboro,Ga. My teacher is excellent! She lectures us and pushes to do more than what we are learning there. She lets us use Everest instead of the other way. She also is preparing us for the state exam. She gives us practice tests etc. She also teaches the way the state does it, and what to expect in the real world. Maybe I am one of the few, but my experiance has been wonderful. And I graduated high school and 85 and finally went to school! I have no complaints!!! Good luck to you who do. And between grants and Sallie Mae, I will end up paying back about $5000! Money well spent!!! When I graduate, I will further my education, and at least be working in my field. I love being a PCT...

I went to Everest back in 2005 when it was still called Bryman. And know my experience with them was not great. But I would like to believe that that is because the school was brand new to Missouri had a lack of staff and no direction at all. I am currently planning on going back to take a different course at Everest. I know some people are wondering why, if you've already had a bad experience. And my answer to that is simply because a bad experience is only as bad as you allow it to be. It is up to each individual to get the best out of everything laid before you and if Everest was bad to you it's not because they failed as an institute it's because you failed as an individual to get all you can while you were there and making that best out of that.. It's your money that you're spending so make sure you get your money's worth by being a bug in someone's ear until you begin to see the results that you want. Don't be afraid to ever ask questions and Demand results from anyone or anything. I graduated in St. Louis, MO first Gradauating Class and although my sucess after graduation wasn't all that great I have plenty of peers who are doing excellant one being my own sister. So I say it's not Everest that is bad it's the students that want everything handed to them on a platter. This is college you have to work as hard as you want them to..

I am currently a student at Everest in the MIBC program in Oregon, and I must say there are some problems but none compared to what's been said on here.
Yes, there are some students that get on my nerves. But, there will always be people that get on your nerves wherever you go. Right?
And yes, some teachers are more into teaching than others. This is a "college" level school. It's not high school. They expect you to do your work and take some responsibility. They are not babysitters.
I am only in my second month. My teacher for this month is different than the teacher I had last month. These two teachers are so different in their styles but that's ok. One is more relaxed than the other, but they still care about whether you do well or not. The one that's more relaxed doesn't harp on you about your homework and gives a lot of time in class to work on your homework and study for tests. She is more into you doing the work for you, not standing in front of the class lecturing all day.
The last teacher I had was the opposite. Most of the class was lecture and we had about a half hour to work on homework and study.
It really depends on where you go to school and who your teacher is. There are some things you will like and some things you won't. It's like that with ANY school. Not just Everest. And just cause you have a bad experience doesn't mean ALL Everest Institutes are like that. So far I am liking the program and don't feel it's a waste of money. I don't think every Everest is going to have a teacher that talks about smoking pot all day. True, she shouldn't be a teacher, but instead of complaining about it on here, go to the board and take care of it there. Keep going up until that teacher loses her job. We can't help you here.
I just feel that unless you have gone to 100 Everest Institutes you can't say they are all bad. Cause they aren't. You are going to come across teachers you don't like in Universities and Community Colleges as well. It's just a fact of life, so deal with it and stop complaining. Do your work, take your tests, ignore the people who drag you down and just get it done.

I am an everest student and the school is all about you catching on. If you are simple, yes it will suck. the school is what YOU make of it. It is definately NOT for simple simons it is for intelligent people that can catch on.

I am a current student with Everest in Eagan, MN and all I have to say about the negatives with this school is that it depends on your instructor and your location. My instructor is just that, an instructor, she has 10+ years worth of experience in the field that she is teaching, and the same goes for our lead instructor. They educate us exactly on what we need to know and learn, we practice the work we will be doing in the work feild in our class room. Every person on the staff does what they can to help and assist struggling students, I am doing great and am picking it all up fast.
I have tried the community college route and it wasn't for me, I also looked in to ComputerTraining.com, and if you want bad reviews search them up in google.
Everest is right for a lot of people and not right for some. If you are hands on and know a little about what you are interested in then go for it. The job placement rate is fantastic and I am looking forward to becoming a Pharmacy Tech and graduating with my head held high at graduation.
