Academic Experience: I wasted 18 months in their "Computer Support Specialist" program, in which I had multiple teachers openly admit that they had yet to read the book. Aside from one teacher, the remainder saw us as a paycheck, or realized the farce they were participating in & left after 1 10 week session

We didn't look at one server rack. We didn't work with any modern computers. As far as SSA, SAAS & cloud computing, all we heard were the names. If you can explain the difference between RAM & HDD you are overqualified for this program

The level of support was so poor that we did not have a functioning internet connection to run any tests, download software mentioned in textbooks, or use Office 365's Lyve, a webcam/chat client we spent a week learning about. Furthermore, bringing these issues up to staff, we were met with denial, ignorance, & in Melanie's case, she laughed at us

I was told they would be expanding their computer lab, that we'd be getting new computers & our own classroom complete with tools. In the 18 months I was there, they did nothing to expand our program, provided us with personal laptops running windows 7 when 8 was current & 10 was on imminent, taking close to $1000 dollars of our financial aid to pay for the laptops. Looking up the model online after receiving it, they were listed closer to $400

In that same 18 months, they built a new, "state-of-the-art" Cosmetology wing

The only way we could work on our networking assignments was to set up an intranet between all of our computers, using donated hardware. We had to set this system up EVERY CLASS, because we never had a dedicated classroom

The externship program asked students who worked full time being to work on unpaid internships. I personally was never contacted until the placement advisor was about to hit her deadline, & by that time I had found a job that would count for this externship of my own accord. I Have never been contacted by their job placement advisor, & no one has yet to follow up with me

Academic Experience: At this IBMC mostly everyone is either a MA or in Cosmo which is very helpful when it comes to needing help with a class. Everyone here is very friendly. It's nice because you get to do a lot of hands on training which I know many students love.

Academic Experience: I am currently taking classes to be a medical assistant, the classes are great and we get homework everyday. Everyone here helps one another and everyone is nice. The professors are helpful and patient with the students and help you understand everything that is going on in class. The homework we get is easy and the books we get are amazing and a great benefit.

Academic Experience: I only have to go through a few general classes and then I get to do hands on training.
