4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The application process was very easy. The staff and faculty are very friendly and helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: We have career counselors to help us personalize our resumes and help us find careers right out of school

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They have a computer lab constantly open to students with staff and tutors available for help.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There is only one graduating class at a time, your class stays together the entire 2 years, same classes, same time. You have no say in when classes are.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is very expensive for a 2 year course, but it is a trade school so it makes sense.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: The class sizes are small which creates strong relationships between the student body.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The workload is a lot but the teachers make it very manageable.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are only a few career choices with PIMA medical but if your career or degree is applicable, its great.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Its easy to do on your own schedule. Course was easy to navigate.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: I have yet to start school at Pima.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I think the workload is a lot, but not bad for a 2 year program. The professors are always there to help and to do tutoring sessions when needed. The teachers are pretty involved with the students. The registration process was a long process, including testing and interviews, but well worth it.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Most of my school consists of people that have jobs, children, families (working class people). The students that live close to each other or don't have children tend to get together more often than others. Socializing is not a main priority in my class.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is very diverse. The age ranges are from just out of high school to middle-aged. The life experiences vary greatly from people getting life back on track after rehab to single parents to people out of the military. The classes tend to be cohesive and a good environment to get acquainted with new and different people.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are generally accessible during and even after business hours. The curriculum may be review for some students (algebra, basic communication, basic computer literacy, anatomy & physiology). The teachers are not experts in any field except radiography so the math, A&P, communications lectures come directly from the textbooks with little additional explanations. The registration process is automatic. The class size is good at 30 students. The workload consists of 8 classes the first semester and 6 classes the second semester. Externship goes from semesters 3 to 6 for four days a week and two classes one day a week on campus. Externship is working a full-time day job without pay. It is difficult to work more than part-time a couple of days a week on top of extern.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: Since the pre-requisites are built into the program, some or most of the information may be review for some students with previous college experience. Transfer credits are accepted but dropping below full-time status may affect financial aid. The class schedule is predictable for the most part. No one teacher is an expert or has a degree in the subjects being taught (biology, math, communications, anatomy & physiology). Since I have college experience and a strong math background, the lack of knowledge by the teachers was frustrating many times. Assignments are accepted after the due dates and are given full credit many times, which is unfair to students who work hard to turn everything in on time. The academics are not overly difficult. The difficult part is the workload, time requirements, and multiple tests each week on top of working a job.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Classes Are Difficult – The first two semesters of the program are very difficult. Students put in about 32 hours a week for studying apart from class. There was a lot of information that we needed to learn. It was a huge workload and took a lot to motivte yourself to get through it, but it has been worth it so far.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: My computer class is pretty simple for the most part. This is the first class that I have taken online through this program. It is easy, but I have learned a few things. Some of the other classes have a few things that need some assignments done online, but mostly everything is done in class.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Only Classrooms and a Computer Lab – The school is in a business building so all of the classes are on one floor and it only has the administration area, classrooms, and a computer lab.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Happy With the School – I really enjoy going to this school. I get along with most of the people in my class since we all have a common interest and desire to become vet assistants. But even with all of the fun it is still school and there is a lot of work.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Interesting but Could Be Better – I really like my major of veterinary assisting but the classes go really fast and we have a lot to learn, so sometimes I think we aren't learning everything we need to know or getting the practice we need to do things well. The good thing is that all of the classes are focused on vet assisting and there are no pointless elective classes.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: There is a financial aid adviser that will walk you through everything you need to do. The tuition amount is good based on the rate of people they have graduating and getting jobs, and compared to a university it costs less, but its still a lot of money.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid staff is helpful is finding options for every situation and what they think will work best for you. They want to make your education a reality and will help you do so.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Amazing Private School – I think that this school is amazing. Every time you walk onto campus you feel like everyone cares about you. They know you by name and are involved in every step of your education. Teachers put out extra effort to help their students if those students are willing to put forth the same effort. They truly do care about seeing their students succeed!

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have not had any difficulty with Tuition and Financial Aid. The school is expensive, taken into account that I already have school debt that I have been trying to pay down. I have gotten great assistance and know my advisors personally.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Why I Chose PIMA Medical Institute – I selected PIMA Medical Institute because I was completely bored adn felt stuck in the career that I had previously gone to school for. I did not feel that I was doing anything of importance and wanted to make a difference in people's lives on a daily basis. PIMA has been nothing but challenging and encouraging. I knew after the first week that I had made the right decision for me. After graduation and working a bit, I hope to once eventually return to PIMA for specialized education in my chosed field.
