The absolute worst. Unorganized. Credits will not transfer. They will not help you with job placement and good luck getting your transcripts. I completed an associate degree there that is basically worthless. Such a disappointment. Worst mistake ever.

The will not release my transcripts although my classes were all paid for. After I dropped a class during the allotted time they kept my pell grant and loan money. All I asked for was transcripts for my current college and they refused I had to take all my classes over.

As a current student of Brown Mackie, I am starting to get out of attending classes here. This campus is completely unorganized and from what I understand, in danger of losing their accrediation. If they lose their accrediation, we are all screwed. I know of no other schools in this area that takes credits from BM with the exception of Trine Unversity, which I just learned from the previous poster. At least we have one option to go to, as opposed to starting completely over.Simply put, this school is a complete waste of money.
