We are not sure how the chips may fall in this situation, but we can no longer sit idly by and watch our peers get taken advantage of by Medix College in Smyrna Georgia.  If we didnt write this letter then we are no better than the crooks running this institution.

Medix College practices aggressive/manipulating recruiting tactics, willingly participate in NOT providing accurate information about the cost of the institution, the ability to transfer credits and starting salaries of their graduates.

When telling the prospective students the expected amount they could make, admissions representatives obtain information from the U.S. Department of Labors Web site and not from Medix College own data collected concerning its graduates.

The admissions representatives quotas are based upon figures determined by financial forecasts and budget calculations which have NO relationship to the education of the students, but are PURELY profit driven! The admissions reps act like car salesman, telling prospective students whatever they want to hear so theyll go to Medix College.

In addition to maladaptive recruiting practices, Medix College currently has non-degreed educators teaching degree programs! Explain to the students at Medix College how this could go on! Moreover, the educators who do not have a degree are currently enrolled in Medix College On-line degree programs with the students that are currently being taught! Talk about conflict of interest.  The educators who are currently enrolled to attain their degree are GIVEN a passing grade for compliance.  Whats more, many of the educators and department heads have falsified degrees/files to ensure accreditation. This is FRAUD!

Two or three months prior to writing this letter our college had an educator by the name of Donald Williams teaching the Medical Assisting Associates of Occupational Science program without a degree and selling exams to students. He was fired, but the college allowed the students who purchased the exams to remain and finish their studies with full knowledge-the buying and selling of exams from this teacher has been going on for quite some time.

Additionally, our college failed each student at the graduation this past Friday November 12, 2010 and previous others. The college failed to provide a rehearsal, not enough or no programs, not even the college faculty and staff were all present at the ceremony. How embarrassedly sad and shameful! We the students pay anywhere from 13,960.00 to 46,362.00. Why is it that we cannot have a decent graduation?!

Please Please Please investigate our college on every level! We the students at Medix College invite your agencies to come and speak with us concerning these matters. Ask former students, especially the recent graduates. We the students are tired of getting the short end of the stick.

What are we the students at Medix College looking for? We are looking for accountability on every level! We want Medix College to be required to demonstrate their graduates are not saddled with too much debt. Prospective rules that would curb incentive payments to college recruiters and require Medix College to disclose graduation and job placements rates to prospective students.

I graduated from Medix in June 1994 & will say they almost guaranteed you would have a job at graduation.  The school claimed that most students were hired by the doctors they did the extern for.  Not true. No one I went to Medix with was hired by the MD they externed for. It took me almost 2 yrs to find a job in the medical field & now my medical assistant degree from Medix is virtually worthless.
