i agree with jill. i also attend everest and this school is a joke!they do not get you prepared for the state exam and my teacher has told us that. you have to go out and buy a prep book fir 70 plus and learn on your own. these teachers do not care about teaching us, they just make us pass their tests by giving us exactly what will be on the test. they just want to get paid. this is not a school it is a business. i hope no one decides to go to everest. go to your local community col. they offer programs and are much cheaper, but take a little longer. DO NOT GO TO EVEREST!!!! biggest waste of money i have ever spent. =(

Everest Institute is the worst school out there and I hope you all do your research before dropping 15 grand on this bull crap so called school. I currently attend everest and i am in my 5th month. I am on the presidents list and i do very well learning ON MY OWN! The teachers do not care about you or your success. we basically sit around ALL DAY while most of the class is talking, sleeping or arguing with eachother. The teacher does not punish anyone for their behavior and my teacher talkis crap about other students all day when they are not around. My teacher graduated from everest in 2006 and has never has a medical assisting job and is very open about that. She tells us on a daily basis that she wants to quit. she spends her day talking about smoking pot and saying that she wished she had a blunt. this school is the biggest mistake of my like and im paying 15 grand for it. so do your research before you decide to go to everest. WORST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!

I went to UT at Arlington for my undergrad degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Midlevel teaching certification. For Masters, I decided to go to Everest and take online classes towards an MBA. I had also taken undergrad online classes from the UT system. I must say that the Master level classes at Everest are indeed more difficult than the undergrad classes from UT (online classes). The level of work that you have to do for the classes is grand, if you are actually reading your book and doing the work. I just finished the first year of a two-year program. I have not had any problems with Everest letting me down. I was even living in Italy and the school sent my books to me there and on-time, which I can't say for UTA when I needed books sent to Italy during my undergrad online classes. Yes, you do most of the learning on your own, with some support from your classmates and professors. So far, so good. However, I am about to start taking some even more intense classes involving math and economics, which I am not looking forward to. I know I am going to have to put more time and effort into my studying. When you look at the classes and take the exams, you will see that they are not so easy and the work really is university level. My only worry is how employers feel about Everest. If they have negative attitudes about it, it is probably because they have heard rumors and really do not know anything about it. Maybe it depends on what classes and degree you seek as well as the location. I can't complain about the online classes, so if you don't like your on-site campus, maybe you should try online classes. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I pose a question to those that had a bad experience with EVEREST: What was your attendance like? Did you actually SHOW up for the 4 hours a day it takes to get the material or READ your book you paid for? Did you come to the school with the drama of your life?
I was in a class that had a few people that really had no desire to actually change their life! What pissed me off was when my teacher had to go back a help those that did not come to school because they didn't feel like it! Or deal with those students that had crap attitudes. I have 3 kids and worked while in school. SUCK IT UP! I missed 3 day of the 140 days of class time!
I have been through the program and am now, 1 year after graduation, the lead MA for a the general practice. I did not get hired from my extern site, I, ME, NO ONE ELSE BUT ME, got my job. Just like every other job I've had in my life I looked for.
Everest is not a bad school, the teachers are people too. You get what you put into it. I chose to do the best I could. I did not graduste with honors, close but not honors.

I'm curently a student at Everest Institute in Chelsea MA. I can say that I'm getting what I'm paying for, plus the teacher that I have is great. It's one of the schools that has really motivated me on doing something with my life. It only takes seven months to get out and go to the real world to do what I was taught. So if you have a choice on going to Everest or any of the Corinthian Colleges would be a good choice.

I went to Everest Institute in Southfield Michigan for Practical Nursing. I will admit, the program has it issues. However, I can not diminish the value of the education I received. The program is staffed with qualified instructors, registered nurses with advanced degrees, I will say that. Like I said, there were pitfalls along the way. But here I am, less than three months out of school and I have my nursing license and I am gainfully employed. Success is possible in this program. I do not know about any other program, but the PN program definitely served its purpose for me.

i graduated from everest institute formerly known as olympia and i believe that it was the biggest waste of money i have ever spent in my entire life, just the though of it makes my somach drop. Sallie mae should stop funding loans to people who want to attend this school because thats all they want is your money, they have sales representatives that talk the school up and make it sound like it's great when the program is a complete joke. I was told when started that if i graduated i would be making over $20.00 an hour and if i wanted to further my career that it would count as credits if i decided to attend a community college. Absolutely none of this was true and i now have a job that pays no more than what you would make if you worked waitiing tables and stuck with a $13,000. 00 bill with nothing to show for it. I believe that it is a scam and the institute should be investigated as to where their funds are going.

Today I took a tour with my fiancé. I notice that they were trying to rush her to enroll with the school. They asked a lot of closing questions like “would you be able to start on the 20th of this month? Or what time would you like to come during the day for class?” when the closing questions wasn’t working she started to get an attitude. The course for dental assistant is $15052.65 for 8 months. I came home and did research and I found schools for $895 for 4 months..hmmm. Huge difference. While we parked our cars we notice students in the parking lot blasting music like they were in the hood. The school parking is not well lighted so during night time you don’t know is hiding in the shadows. Overall I’m not impressed with the school.
