I am not a graduate from this school, I graduated from The Salter School in 2000, I have been a CMA for 11 years and have had an opportunity to have a few Medical Assistants from this school come and do their externships with me all I can say is that this school is not preparing their students for the field there is a lot more to working in a physician's office than weights and blood pressures. If anyone is considering to go to school for Medical Assisting I would caution you about this school I hear its very expensive in fact on of our local LPN programs is actually LESS than this school's tuition. After finishing classroom time a medical assistant should be able to hit the ground running at their externship my experience with this school's MAs has been very bad

Everest Institute in Southfield Mi is terrible! My classmates and I will tell you--avoid this school at all costs! The Medical Assisting program does NOT prepare you for the field! The instructors are so-so! The career services department does not help you find a job unless you are African American and live in Detroit. My GPA was a 98.97 percent! They found me NO job interview/job. Also, I was forced to find my own externship after they promised to place me at a site! That was why I paid over $9 thousand to attend their 9 month program--because of all their promises to help find me a job, to help get me ready for the state certification--it was all a lie! The staff is extremely unprofessional and when there is any kind of problem, the dean will not do anything but tell you to go to coporate. What a waste! Not to mention there are NO jobs for medical assistants here in Troy, MI unless you've had 1+ year experience-another false statement by Everest!

Everest is a joke. Do not go here. Its a huge waste of money. The staff is rude and unaccomidating and clueless. The administration office in Grand Rapids allows other students to act in an abbusive mannor.. not to mention that the price is way to high for what you get. some of the instructors really are great.. Ms G is awesome.. But the professionalism of the admistrators is unacceptable.. They are unresponsive, unsupportive, and just don't care. DO NOT GO HERE.
They gave it 5 stars cause the rating star optin is not that obvious.. i almost missed it here.. i also have a friend that went through the dental programm and can't get a job because she is not allowed to give xrays.. why would you have a dental assistant program without a xray certificate. Worse school ever!!!!!!!!

I am a Student Ambassador at the Norcross, GA campus and let me just say that this school needs HELP! Maybe it's just the campus because I have read some good things about other campuses. Today it was RAINING IN the school. I litterally mean that. At the Norcross campus they have replaced the ceiling tiles I don't know how many times since I first started here. Today is my last day and yet again, for maybe the 6th time, it rains inside. The student lounge was flooding and the labs were ALL leaking. The point I'm trying to get at is that if you expect us to learn here, maybe you should replace things so that we can learn safely and without having to hear that our EKG machines don't work properly because they got rained on. On another note, I am a weekend student and they have been promising a full weekend staff for us since day one. As with everything else I have brought to their attention, nothing seems to have been done about it. The extern coordinator for my program (MA) has done nothing to help me and a few other students I know find externships. Do not promise me that you will help me after you sucker me in to paying $15000 and then just flake out on me. If you want my opinion, this schoool really is out for money. While my instructor has been a good one and I have learned a lot, I had to teach myself MEDISOFT.
Let me also say, and Im just going on and on, but I do have a personal experience with someone not hiring because the name EVEREST was on my resume'. I went to an interview for my externship and she was about to hire me and when she spoke to her business mgr., he said they no longer take students from here. When I asked why I was told that several students have stod around and done nothing as if they were never taught what to do in the first place. I have a 95 average and was willing to fight to prove myself but he said taht they simply could not do it because I came from Everest.
Long story short, while I have learned some of what I need to succeed as an MA, I have had to fight to get there and now I can't even get an externship like they promised or a job. Do not waist your time and/or money coming here. My advice to you would be to go elsewhere for the sake of your career.
TRY BROWN MACKIE, MAYBE EVEN GO TO NURSING SCHOOL, BUT DONT COME TO EVEREST GUYS PLEASE!

Everest Institute Kalamazoo/MI
Not what I agreed to pay 15,000 for, there is only maybe 50 minutes a day spent in lab. My instructor seems to know alot but we don't, the majority of the day is gossip! I have only a couple of days until I graduate on the PRESIDENTS LIST + PERFECT ATTENDANCE. Still, there is no extern NO ONE WANTS A EVEREST STUDENT in there practice at all. This school is a very bad choice to make, you have better odds playing the lottery.

I am currently a student a Everest in Chelsea MA, I habe to say that overall my experience here was not the best. At the beggining I had a very good instructor that really cared to teach but then suddenly they switched her for a instructor that does not care at all. I WOULD'T RECOMENR ANYONE HERE!! Is a waste of time and money. Before u even think of coming to this school check community colleges that cost less and u can get more....

I AGREE WITH EVERYONE I GRADUATED ON PRESIDENTS LIST JUST BECAUSE I SHOWED UP HALF THE TIME WE NEVER HAD A TEACHER AND WHEN WE FINALLY GOT ONE SHE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT MASSAGE THERAPHY AT ALL. MY WHOLE CLASS GOT STUCK AND SCREWED AND NOBODY CAN PASS THE CERTIFIED EXAM THAT THE STATE REQUIRES YOU TO TAKE. PLEASE PLEAS PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY I AM STUCK WITH FIFTEEN GRAND WITH SALLIE MAE AND NO MASSAGE JOB IN MY FUTURE TO HELP ME PAY IT OFF. DO NOT GO TO THIS COLLEGE YOU WOULD BE BETTER OFF BUYING BOOKS AND TEACHING YOURSELF. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT HOW HORRIBLE THIS SCHOOL IS. ALL THE BEST TO EVERYONE TONI

I am a wannabe MA student. I have done accounting for 12 years and I am looking to make a career change. I visited the campus, did the tour and chatted with some of the staff. They made me feel really welcome and all were very pleasant to talk to. I left excited and gunhoe about proceeding with my career change at Everest.
A girl friend of mine suggested that I do some research before I made my actual decsion. Well, I did and the reviews are terrible. I am not comfortable spending $15,000.00, taking a $10.00 an hour paycut to find out that these reviews are acurate and true.
I thought to myself that maybe the people who are writing the terrible reviews are terrible students but there are so many terrible reviews all similar in a way that I find that hard to believe also. I am truley crushed that what I thought was going to be so great doesn't seem to be.
I am asking That if you have good reviews for this school and positive experiences and final outcomes to please post POSITEVE FEEDBACK!
Thank you for taking the time to read:-)
