me about coming here because i REGRET coming here now my choice of coming here left me in debt.
when i came to check out the school i was excited because i wanted to start school soon well i wish my eyes were more open then my ears, i told them i was looking at other schools and didn't come to make a for sure decision well right away they had me take a "entry test" said just do all the ones you know out of 50 i did like 24 of them i know i did pass it but what happen "congradulations you passed!" they had me try on uniforms and do a bunch of finacial aid which seem to fast and eager but since i was so blinded by them selling me into the school i didn't realize they were just selling me in and scaming me. they told me that the school provided the textbooks and school uniforms through the enrollment fee which was 100$ then also the school only worked through loans which i didnt like thats where i had seconds throughts but of course they sell you in " OH WE WILL HELP YOU! DON'T WORRY YOU DON'T START PAYING ON YOUR LOAN TIL AFTER YOU GRADUATE YOU HAVE 10 YEARS TO PAY IT BACK"" THE PROGRAM 10K BUT YOU GOT APPROVE FOR A GOVERMENT LOAN FOR 3,500 SOME OTHER CRAP THAT LEAD ME TO OWE 5K.
this school is overpriced not worth it! the people in the class are from 19-28 of age
they act like if there kids i was not expecting that from this school, the class was said to be from 7-12 people especially the night class which i was in for the past 3 terms it has been almost 30 kids!
the way we learn is not even helpful the teachers use powerpoints just talk we don't work in a books during class or do worksheets we just sit there listen from a powerpoint that the teacher makes. they say we get hands on LIES! the few days were in lab we get in groups do one procedure thats it in lab we dont do noting else in there! it's like okay shouldn't we be doing and learning more!? untop of that the air condition either they don't turn it on or doesn't work because our class is like 90 degress everyday some kids are sweating i actually started getting my migraines from this we complain the teacher even complained nothing has been fixed with this.
i am also very upset because last week i posted a question on yahoo explaining why i was unsatisfied at concorde my bad experience has anyone had the same what was there judgement
the next day the president called me in was upset said none of that is true that no kids have complained about the school "lies!" because the new kids who just came in were unsatisfied! were already complaining the surveys we get nobody takes the time to do them we just christmas tree them. and what makes me more mad was i don't know how she got it or found it because i went by a username thats not my nickname or real name doesnt say where i live my picture is cut off i doubt a student found it i havent yet to confront how she did but i will when i go to withdrawl. and also back in feburary i wanted to leave because of personal and unsatisfied issues with the school of course i got pressued into staying i spoke with the dean we had a personal talk about why i wanted to leave she said nothign would get out! the president knew everything i dont cae if shes the president CONFEDENTIAL IS PRIVATE REGUADLESS i felt that my rights were invaded.
this school is joke if you have money then be my guest to pay debt but this school i do not recommend they will sell you into buying the school it's all about money i know graduates who came back from clinicals said they had to do things that wearnt taught at concorde, some still looking for jobs some seniors even nagging about the school. this school needs to be shutdown.
get this they expect me to pay the uniform and textbook fee which was included in the enrollment fee! they are scam and money education scammers!
