Pacific Coast Trade School lied, uneducated, and all about $$ Oxnard California
I was looking online for schools that offered electronics technology and one day I happend to come across pacific coast trade school and I called them for more information about their electronics program. The phone conversation went so great that I was convinced that this would be perfect, I spoke with David Mutt, in admissions. I set up an interview with him and turns out that he was not as professional as he sounds. I got to the school, it looks nice, nothing out of the ordinary, went inside the school and waited for David. When I met the admissions director, David, He was dressed up all gangster and wore those big gold chains like what the rappers would wear. I told myself that it's fine, that's who he is And just continued on. All and all, after taking to David, I decided to want to take the course so he sends me to financial aid and we processed my financial aid and student loans and everthing was fine, no out of pocket, and no repayments until I'm done with school, perfect, or so I thought. I even set up a free one day trial for the program that was in two days.
Two days later, I went in for my free trial day and it was a disaster! I went in and met the teacher who barely knew any english, she didn't even introduce herself to me or let me introduce myself until i asked her who she was then she went to turn on the computer and pointed for me to sit down and plugg in the earphones and I did that for about two hours just exercises on electronics materials that I was BRAND NEW to! Then she brought in a printed circuit board and some wires and circuits and just told me to start plugging in the wires and then she handed me a hot stick and some solder wires and just told me to solder the wires onto the board and I am brand new to this, what and how am I suppose to do this??? I was frustrated so when the teacher wasn't around I spoke to one of the students and asked her how the class works, because I did not get any information on the syllabus and rubic or structure of the class. The student told me to think twice because she didn't know and know since she spent 8,800 on the course she is forcing herself to finish it, that this course is not like any other college or training schools out there, i'm better off taking this course online because they don't get lectures, they don't test you, no homework, and no structure just solder boards after boards until your time is up. by now, I had second thoughts on this program.
After that dreadful day was over, I went in to talk to David and he told me that he had bad news and that their school is currently being audit and they have to put student loan and financial aid on hold?? Have any of you heard of this before? I mean, if they were being audited, don't you think that they would'be told me that two days before I did my fianancial aid? Also, David offered to give me a discount price so i can pay in full. I declined because who can pay 8,800 in full even if discounted. I think this school is all in it for the money, one day they tell you something then the next, they tell you something else. Beware. I'm happy that I declined this school.
