I think the field you choose and were you live has a lot to do with finding work. I attended Bryman in 2005 for Medical Billing they found me a place where I had to do a no-pay internship for 30 days. The company where I did my internship in LA highered me At $17 an Hr to start, I was there for two years and I was making $19 an Hr when I left. Then I moved, but was unable to find a job that would pay me the same or better. Then, I finally found one a year after I moved but it's 40 miles away from home.

Everest College is a waste of time even here in Canada. I wasted hard earned money only to be back in a government funded college.

I could not get a job, actually I never even had a interview.

It was the worst experience ever.

My advise go to a government or recognized college and earn a real diploma.

i currently go to everest college (247 jackson & state) and i have to say that school is BACKWARDS! they have no order, the material taught isnt what you're supposed to learn. any good teacher breaking their neck to stand up for us and teach us properly gets fired. a great teacher, Dr. Karen Dunson, was fired last week for standing up for us massage therapy students. they were trying to cram us into clinicals and our hours werent going in like they were supposed to. that new ignoramus mr. mackey fired her for fighting for us. they didnt want to pay her right, nor did they honor her title. they kept calling her Ms. Dunson instead of Dr. she was really in the massage and chiropractor field. she actually KNEW what she was talking about, and she didnt give us a bunch of crap we didnt need. now she's gone, and in these last two mods, we have to fend for ourselves now. mods arent counted down right, they are forever changing things around. why i ever went there, i dont know, but this is the LAST time i enroll in ANYONE'S school, unless it's martial arts. at least i know i'd be getting good training and no one can fire my sensai for some bull.

I'm not in the dental field but I read that Corinthian Colleges/Everest College/Bryman School (they're all owned by the same company) were busted for fraud by the government and ordered to pay over $6 million to former students as part of a settlement. They falsified their hiring rates for graduates in order to entice prospective students and they provided false information to the state boards and other agencies that oversee such schools. They have had to dissolve a lot of their classes because they were substandard. Stay away from Everest and the others named above. Use Google keywords "Corinthian Colleges complaints" or "Everest Colleges complaints" and the same news stories should turn up. I've been searching for good programs for my girlfriend.

Everyone who has been ripped off by Bryman/Everest/Corinthian, et al: are you not aware they were busted for fraud by the government last year? As part of the settlement they are required to pay over $6 million to compensate the many students who were cheated and lied to by these so-called "schools." Google it online and you will find the news stories about this as I did. They are crooks, bigtime!

It is interesting to note that most of the people who complain about not getting a job are lacking in basic English skills -- as demonstrated by their writing.

There is a reason we require four years of English to graduate from high school. If you can't write a paragraph with it being full of mistakes, who wants to hire you?

If anyone knows how to begin legal action against Bryman/Everest, I would love to know, I was never given an extern for my last month of school... therefore never graduated. I am now am struggling to find a way to pay my student loans. Any help would be awesome. They are very misleading, any one looking at attending this school I would think otherwise. My aunt also went to Bryman and she's babysitting in her home....

To amlsi3 in Seattle, WA: Last year, California's Attorney General forced a $6.5 million settlement by Corinthian Colleges/Bryman College, Everest College/National Institute of Technology, with $5.8 million going to reimburse students who attended these schools. This was to settle a lawsuit alleging that these schools engaged in false advertising and unlawful business practices by presenting inaccurate salary and employment information to students. The State's news release, dated July 31, 2007, can be found at www.ag.ca.gov/newsalerts.

Obviously, you are in another state, but I would encourage you to complaint to your state's secondary school licensing agency, the agency that accredits private secondary schools in your state, your state's department of consumer affairs and your state's attorney general.

Judging from the comments posted here and elsewhere, the problems with Corinthian/Everest/Bryman/NIT schools are not confined to California.

In reading these postings there are several things that stand out. It does matter how one reflects him or herself in writing. Most employers that are paying decent wages want employees whose skills are good in speaking and writing.
Additionally, it is never wise to only speak to the representative of a school or business to make your decision. This also applies to establishing relationships. It is always smart to ask someone else about this "hot" chick, job, school or opportunity.

skeet in Chicago, Illinois

I wrote an entry a few days ago that I did not complete. I am seeking information from anyone who may have attended Bryman in Chicago for computer programming. I attended Aug/1981 - Feb/1982. The school also offered training in medical and dental assisting at 17 N. State Street, Chicago, IL and in Oak Park, IL.
Although I completed with a straight "A" average, the school did not assist me in gaining employment. However, I was able to get a referral from one of the instructors and got my first job.
But as I mentioned in an earlier E-mail, during my visit to the school I was checking them out as they were checking me out. I had taken an earlier course in computer programming and although I had not done well, I knew some questions to ask before I signed on the dotted line. At the start of the class I there were nearly thirty students. During the first week, I reasoned that half of them should have never been accepted and I encouraged them to withdraw to lessen what they would have to pay back. To make a long story short - there were only 10 that completed the course and only 3 got jobs.
And I agree with what some have said - you need to get a "real degree". some 20+ years later I am out of work and many doors are closed because I lack a 4 year degree or recent certification. Nevertheless, if someone has any information about the Bryman School of Computer Programming, Chicago, IL - please respond. I am hoping to somehow get a transcript or some proof of my attendance at this school. Any help is appreciated.

Went to Everest college in Gilbert, AZ. Complete JOKE!!! Got lied to left and right. Was actually excited to go back to school but had that all flushed away once I got into class. Five different teachers who teach very differently, one teacher who didnt even know what she was teaching. A director who doesnt even care and just makes you feel stupid all the time. A president who lies to you all the time. Staff who doesnt give you the time of day when you need help. They say they will help you find a job but if you cant get through a temp agency they say "well you should go out and hit the pavement" without even trying to help. They are professional liars over there. If there was any way I can start a lawsuit I would. I wasted thousands of dollars on nothing!! They lie about your salary in the field. It is just a joke. DO NOT GO TO EVEREST COLLEGE ANYWHERE!! I hear the same thing over and over.

I am top student and visible minority ( most of marks were above 90% ) inspire of my health condition and they have been aware of this since enrolling and have medical letter. Their teachers are not licensees and don’t how to control class or teach properly.

They have been sued many times. Still doing racial abuse and fraud. many of them seems to be racist too.
They are not appreciate with our intellectual. just fraud and money is the best things that important to them. misinformation and wrong advertisements . They have been abusing and humiliating me with their power and now have been trying to supply me in a placement where healthy students refused to do their placement there!! .
Everest College has to sue and we must get together to take off their Credit.

Stop doing such these fraud and abuse and discrimination,, they have done many discrimination and humiliation inspire of being top student there….. Come and get together and sue them/ make the local Ministry of education to take off their Credit. And shout down the Everest College door and any College doing improper jobs.

sharris06 in Arlington, Texas

I attended the Everest College in Arlington, Texas and it was the worst experience ever. I was in the Medical Insurance Billing and Coding Program. First of all we never had the same teacher and there were times when we didn't. I felt that some of the teachers that taught there were under qualified and dind't know what they were doing. When I enrolled they told me that they had a 90% job placement rate and a 98% graduation rate. Well I did graduate ,but I'm not working and it's been 5 months since I finished. The teachers told us that on our resume's we could use Everest College as experience and jobs will take that and that's not true. Most jobs, at least the 100's that I've applied to want at least two to three years experiece and going to Everst is not expierence. The thing that got me the most is that I wanted to continue my education and get my Associate's Degree and Bacholar's. My admission's representative Mrs.Walker said that I could transfer my Everest credits and go to any school I wanted. NOT TRUE! No one exepts Everest credits and that sucks because now I have to pay $12,000 in student loans and start all over. No one at the school tries to help you. I felt I have spent all my time in that school for nothing. The certification test that you can taked is bologna too. That certification is not even recognized.

Gizmo in Bradenton, Florida

I have worked in the medical field for the past 38 years. Specifically in large hospital settings. As part of my job I have coordinated externships with various schools. For example, here in Bradenton, Florida we have academic relationships with Manatee Community College (MCC) and Manatee Technical Institute (MTI). Both of these schools are public institutions. Tuition at MTI averages $700 per term while MCC charges by the credit hour. To enroll in MTI you will be required to take a general academic placement exam which does not require a H.S. Diploma. MCC's policies vary depending on their courses but a H.S. diploma is not always required. Everest is part of the Corinthian College corporation. Our experience here has been that the average Corinthian (Everest) student is a poor choice as a job candidate. Their skill sets lack sound academic fundamentals. We do not pursue externships with Everest or Corinthian College. Before enrolling in a school that requires you to pay tens of thousands of dollars based on the bidding of a television commercial, you would be better served by checking with your local school board as to the availability of less expensive and more promising alternatives. They can also assist you with student loan and scholarship programs if you have that need. You can find the phone number to your local school board in your phone book in the 'local government' section at the front of the book. A quality education need not be expensive. Good fortune to you all.

I have been attending Everest College for a month now, I am taking the Medical Assistant Degree program. At the moment I don't have anything bad to say about the school. I am still having my doubts, I hope I have made the right decision before I get deep in debt. I agree the program is very expensive. For the MAD3 program it is a total of $31,000.00 for two years. I know each persons experience is different but it seems like every comment is negative. I thought I did my homework before I enrolled. I have researched and I know the Everest College in Portland, OR is accredited through ACICS. I wish I could speak with more graduates to see how their experience was.

I have a question. Why is it that the people who complain about how much these diploma mills charge did not research the much lower cost and more highly respected vocational programs at junior colleges and state universities and attend such programs instead? For instance I have a San Francisco State University College of Extended Learning ABA Paralegal Certificate. The cost of the program was approximately $5000.00 as opposed to the $10,000.00 + it would cost at a diploma mill like Everest College, Heald College, Western Career College, etc.

Dana in Illinois: Glad to hear you are having a good experience with Everest College in your area; that's how it should be. Perhaps this organization is cleaning up their act. However, here in California, Everest College and all its affiliated schools (Corinthian College, Bryman Schools, etc.) were hit with a $6.5 million fine by the California Attorney General for fraudulent business pratices including misleading students about the curriculum and job placement. So, at least in California, they have a very bad track record. Thankfully, my wife chose to attend a community college for her dental program.

Dana in Skokie, Illinois said: I am personally SHOCKED to the response people have to Everest. First off, it's not the SCHOOL'S fault you don't have a job. That's your own. Not only do they have an extremely reliable and resourceful career assistant program, they even help you find the jobs. WHILE IN SCHOOL. The school in general is a hands-on learning program, you take away what you learn and all they promise is the degree.I have been at Everest since april this year, and I love it; it gives all the necessary tools you'd learn at any other college (I however am in the Medical Assistant program). SO to those of you who want to be big babies and cry over how the school is a waste and a fraud, see if you ever get yourselves the job you desire while going to Harvard. And that way, when you fail, you'll know IT WASN'T THE SCHOOL THAT CAUSED YOUR PROBLEM!

Find a good community college program or consult your local adult eduction or Regional Occupational Program to obtain a good education at a much more affordable price. Everest College and its affiliated schools have a terrible reputation for poor curriculum and fraudulent practices here in California, and since all their schools in the U.S. are part of the same company, I would not be surprised if this occurs in their other locations across the nation.

I strongly advise anyone who is planning to attend Bryman ( now Everest ) not to go to this so called college. You will only waste your time and hardly earned money and they will not find you a job.
Please take this advice or you will regret you went there like me.
I cant sleep at night thinking how they ruin young peoples lives. I wish i went to Tacoma Community or Pierce College.
I will do everything that is in my power to make shure this marketing company called EVEREST COLLEGE goes out of business!!!
Everest SUCKS!!!

I personally have not applied or gone to this "school" if thats what you want to call it but here in Washington that school has a reputation for being one of those "fake schoools" that are always on the television. I have two friends who have gone to as well as completed courses at this school and have yet to be employed in the field in which they were "certified". Each has been out of the school for well over 1 year.

Vika London in Los Angeles, California said: Hello everyone. I am looking for any information about Everest college in Los Angeles,CA. I have done a lot of research on the school but i still don't know if it's for me. It is extremely HIGH. Do employers really hire these graduates. Anyone who has gone there and graduated from their dental assisting program , please let me know before i make the biggest mistake of my life, PLEASE HELP ME!

I went to everst college when it was olympia to be honest that school sucks, I could not get a job when I walked out of that school, I finally found a job at a dead end place nothning like they promised me. To be honest it wasnt even because of everst, Now that I am continuing my education I find out that mmy credits were not transfer over, after I was told that they were, I have a diploma that means nothing and a loan that I am struggling to pay off being a single mother. This school sucks.
