3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Attending Brown Mackie College has been a great experience so far, but there have been a few problems with the classes. Depending on what classes you are taking there are designated times you can attending those classes. If you are taking basic courses you have two time frame options, morning 9am to 1pm or afternoon 2pm to 6pm. With these two times, it is hard to work your work schedule around them. If you were working a full-time job prior to school, you have to cut your hours back. The only places that work around those hours are jobs like retail, healthcare, food services, or graveyard shift jobs. Once we start our fieldwork we will be working a full-time job from 8am to 5pm or later and that will also effect any outside jobs we have to cover rent and bills.

Online Courses: Our classes are not online, we attend class within a classroom, however we do use blackboard to turn in assignments, gather paperwork, and much more to complete our classes. Our blackboard system is not any different from other schools, there is a place for discussions, dropbox, doc sharing, etc.

Career Services: Like I have mentioned before, we have the opportunity to obtain a temporary license after we complete our fieldwork to work within our field while we prepare for our certification exam. Past graduates from my current college within my degree have been offered jobs from their fieldwork sites as well. The career services department is willing to try to prepare us for interviews and building a proper resume/cover letter for future job prospects.

Overall Experience: My classmates have been the same from day one. There are 18 students within my class and we have all grown together and became a small family. Even our teachers have become an important part of our lives. We all joke and laugh together when there is time to be silly during class, but we are mostly serious with the criteria we cover. Our professors give out their phone numbers and we are allowed to contact them with any of our questions/concerns (during a reasonable time frame).

Overall Experience: I have heard of previous students that have attended and graduated from my college within my degree were offered a job from their fieldwork sites. We also have the opportunity to obtain a temporary license after our fieldwork while we are preparing for our certification exam. Within the degree program our last class before fieldwork is dedicated to management and preparing ourselves for interviews and resume building. The career services department also helps us with preparing for job interviews and resume building as well. Everyone at this college are dedicated to helping their students achieve success outside of school and get a job within their field.

Academic Experience: As an Occupational Therapy Assistant I get to work hands on with patients of all variety that need help to regain independence in completing their daily activities that are purposeful to them. While attending school we have multiple classes that vary from neurological rehabilitation to functional anatomy to pediatrics/geriatrics. Each class is broken up into four weeks with 3 quizzies, multiple in-class assignments, discussions and lots of laughter. We do learn a lot of information within a short time, but the way our class is set up it works out greatly and learning everything is not as difficult as people would normally think. Before we graduate, we get the opportunity to work out in our field during a four month internship/clinical experience. Our fieldwork coordinator sets up two separate facilities that fall into the facility settings we enjoy the most, like I want to work in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), therefore our fieldwork coordinator will try to put me in that setting. As for the workload for a COTA (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant), it all depends on the amount of patients that enter your facility and the type of facility you work in. In a hospital outpatient setting you could see more patients than you would see in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), due to the fact that in a SNF the patients are continuously there and do not come and go like outpatients do.

Overall Experience: When I first started at Brown Mackie College I did not know what to expect. I went in only knowing that the school was broken up into monthly courses and that it would take a lot of dedication to complete my degree. As I went through my classes I began to realize this was a great fit for me. My professors have all been so caring and dedicated to each student and their success. It has been a completely different setting than a bigger college like University of Texas and it is really nice. My classmates have been the same people since day one. It has been a great opportunity to make those longlasting friendships with others that will be in my field of work after I finish my degree. Lastly, since the professors are the same as well we all build those friendships and get to know so much about each other. We have inside jokes and learn to laugh along with each other throughout the program. It is possibly the best school I have attended!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The flexibility and one class per month is an absolute pro. The work load is somewhat overwhelming. Curriculum is manageable, and staff pleasant

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall a great college. Tuition, travel time and commute is the only hender

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think at times this school has helped me a lot to get threw and make it possible for me to graduate. I think the overall experience is great for someone who hasn't ever been or has a problem transitioning to being in school. I wouldn't choose the school again I'd probably find me a better one or something more tailored for me and my life style. I graduate in about three months and its been the longest struggle journey and life changing experience. It's become something for me to be proud of. I do want to continue my degree else where as soon as I'd finish here.

Academic Flexibility: With classes being ofered day and evening most people should have no problem attending this school and working full time

5 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Online classes were straight forward and as long as you were disciplined and followed the outline, participated in class discussion questions on time and completed all assignments on time i had no problem getting an A in the three online courses i took

Career Services: Career services took the time to help me write a nice professional resume as well as interview tips and provided me with many job prospects.I definitely would not have obtained a new higher paying job without all the help from career services.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The instructors were readily available for extra help and tutoring also they were very understandinf if you had to leave early or missed a day.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I would say depending on your career path it ok.I graduated in may of 2015 with an associate degree and was able to obtain a job in the legal department at a financial co with a starting salery of 60.000 per yr.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I was enrolled in the criminal justice program the core classes were good such as the criminal investigation and police procedure class where we learned how to lift fingerprints off iteims, fill out police reports and participated in mock crime scenes. The legal writing class was helpfull we learned how to prepare case briefs,reports and memos tothe courts.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The one class a month makes it easier to focus on school if you work full time the drawback is some classes cram to much information in a short time and it would be better if some classes like college algebra were 2months also tuition is expensive and financial aide is often hard to reach and they do not tell you the real cost upfront if you have other obligations such as a full time job or family i would say give this school a try other than a few drawbacks it is decent.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: From the moment I walked through the doors, I felt as though I had found my second home.My favorite expirence with this school was the day I recieved Deans List. I was given an award and a pin. This school is the best thing that has happened to me.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far so good. I just recently started and have been enjoying the fast paced schedule. They worked with me to transfer out of the Art Institute and I feel this is a far better opportunity.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: You have to be more driven to get things done. I liked it though.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I haven't personally had a problem. However, I have heard other students have problems with transferring credits. I am glad I didn't have any that needed to be transferred as I feel it would have been a headache. Having one class a month is nice, but trying to cram all that into three weeks at some points especially at Christmas was a nightmare.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really wanted to go into Medical Surg Tech program. This program was being cut, but instead of telling me that they discouraged me from entering that field. Glad they did, because a couple of students were accepted and then told, "No". I went into computers (IT) as something I thought I might like to do. Again another program that had a lot of problems. The school just can't get it together. Now that I am almost finished, I feel like I wasted a lot of time. Considering that you need a bachelors degree in IT for most basic jobs. Since none of my credits will transfer to another college in town, I am stuck. So, now I will transfer to Business and get my B.S. there.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of the professors are really good at their jobs. Others are just going through the motion to get a pay check. Some aren't even qualified to teach the subject. It is sad when the class knows more about certain aspects of the subject then the teacher. Speaks volumes that there have been four professors teaching an IT class, when the first professor was there for years.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of internships, but it seems like there isn't much placement afterwards. I think it has a lot to do with the field that you are going into. Big problem because there are too many students going into the same field.

1 College Sophomore

Student Body: I don't think we even have one.
