Academic Flexibility at Brown Mackie College - Louisville: Everything went smooth I had no trouble getting anything transferred over and started. The scedule and information I was provided with before attending has been exact.

Career Services at Brown Mackie College - Louisville: I have not graduated but they are already assisting us with prospects, networking (how to), creating a good resume and how to interview geared specifically to the degree.

Overall Experience at Brown Mackie College - Louisville: I have had a great experience here. From the very beginning with administration I have felt as though I was the only one being attended to and that I was cared about along with my progress. Here if you miss a day they will call and be sure everything is okay and jelp you in any way as they do not want anyone to get behind. The professors are very involved in our learning always finding new ways to make it more realistic and apply it to our profession. Setting up real life situations and teaching us how to handle all of the different areas that will be worked with, within our career. The class size is 27 people just the right amount not to big, yet not to small either.

Overall Experience at Brown Mackie College - Louisville: Networking is something stressed, we get opportunities to communicate and put ourselves out there for prospects. When we attend our fieldwork this is a very important part as many have received jobs strictly on there behavior and actions during their time at a particular facility. The quality of the career center is great, they are very involved in assisting in jobs for each of the students and training students on resumes, interviews and many other things to get our feet planted after graduation.

Academic Experience at Brown Mackie College - Louisville: This college is one course a month, this is very helpful in the way that you can focus on the one subject and really understand it instead of juggling 5 different subjects. The workload is fast pace but set up in a very organized manner. The curriculum is very OT specific, we get hands on, guest speakers, and personal experiences from individuals who have been under the care of an OTA. Everything we do is geared toward the profession and how to handle each type of situation as a Occupational Therapy Assistant. It is required of us to have 12 hours of observation time at a facility before going into our fieldwork 1 and then to have 12 hours of volunteer time at a facility before moving into the 4 months of fieldwork 2, where we put our knowledge and learning into real live situations.

Overall Experience at Brown Mackie College - Louisville: I have really enjoyed attending Brown Mackie College, I had gotten to the point that I thought completing a degree would be impossible for me. I have 3 children and have had to turn my life upside down to do it but the fact that it is one course a month and a steady schedule has made it possible for me. Everyone has been so helpful there, setting me up with everything and getting me going. I would take this same path if the choice was mine to make again, it fit my life. The only issue with college for a person in my shoes is there is not much room for working during school, leaving me in a tight spot and often to the point I want to give up. I must not though, this college has provided me with the opportunity and I will do everything I can to go forth. I appreciate scholarship opportunities out there and can only hope that one comes to me. After financial aid was completed for me this year I was left with a bill of $800 for Brown Mackie College, I am now at the point that I absolutely cannot pay it and still attend. Scholarships will be a blessing for whoever shall receive it, as times can get tough when you have a family and trying to complete a degree. Good Luck to ALL!

Academic Flexibility at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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 at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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 at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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 at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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 at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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 at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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 at Brown Mackie College - Phoenix: 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!

Online Courses at Brown Mackie College - Boise: I haven't had any strictly online courses. I am able to check my grades and submit assignments online but right now my courses have all been in the classroom. The website is easy to navigate and understand. Grades are posted when the professor says they will be and I haven't had any issues with the website either.

Career Services at Brown Mackie College - Boise: Brown Mackie goes above and beyond to prepare each student for their career. They also do what they can to make sure you are prepared for an interview and that you have chosen a job that fits you best.

Academic Flexibility at Brown Mackie College - Boise: I haven't personally tried to transfer any credits from this school but I have heard from many people it is not possible. I wish it were possible because I would like to further my education but I would have to start over if I wanted to do that. None of my credits from TVCC transferred so I had to take a couple classes again. The classes are sort of flexible, they work great with my schedule so I can't complain. There are morning and evening classes and it's only 3 days a week. Classes aren't offered on the weekends but I believe that would be very helpful for people who already have a heavy work load during the week.

Online Courses at Brown Mackie College - Boise: The students I have been around have been very friendly and helpful with studying and understanding things in class. The professors do a great job as well of making sure you understand what is going on in class. The website is easy to navigate and my assignments are always graded on time and posted so I can review them.

Overall Experience at Brown Mackie College - Boise: All of my classes have had under 10 students which is awesome for me. having less students helps me to concentrate better and to be comfortable within my class.

Academic Experience at Brown Mackie College - Boise: I cam to Brown Mackie in order to obtain my degree in a timely manner and because I heard so many good things about their courses in the program. Here at Brown Mackie College there is one separate building that is only for student in the vet tech program. The teachers go out of their way to help your specific needs in class. There lectures are clear and they allow time to ask questions which is extremely important to me. We are also able to have hands-on learning classes in the vet tech program which was a huge part of my decision to come to this school. I learn best by being hands-on, so the school being set up the way it is, is very helpful to my college success. I never have more homework than I can handle. the professors are really good at working with you when personal issues arise making it hard to get assignments in on time.
