Overall Rating:

The instructors are great (so they seem). I feel like the tuition is WAYYYY too much for a certificate program and Dorsey should be offering way more than an Acer tablet. You have to deal with younger students interrupting the class multiple times.

I came here for the massage therapy program a few years ago! I was overall happy with the class size and my instructors. Even after I failed my test I was allowed to come back and get help. They really do help you even after you obtain a license by making sure you have a job. Dorsey made it so easy for me to go to school AND have a job that I actually went back to school get my Esthetician’s license to add on to my massage license. Basically the school is what you make of it.. if you really want to succeed don’t be afraid to ask questions because they seem to be eager to help!

The only positive thing about this school were the instructors. Clinicals sites were by far not enough of skills. The main problem were the staff behind the scenes. This school only wants your money!!!! This school run like crooks and thieves in the night. They lie the whole time until your tuition is paid in full and than you see the true side of them. The finacial aid department is horrible. They pass the buck all the time claiming its coroporate. Now here it is coroporate is right on campus but act like casper the friendly ghost! Totally invisible and not able to be reached. Sad sad sad!!!! If they approve you for the Dorsey grant don't hold your breathe on getting it because it is just a space filler on paper because they will never apply the money.This school only cares about the money and for $30,000 they need to do a whole lot more. I strongly advise you to do some reviews on your own before selecting them. Ask previous students like myself. Not enough bang or respect for your buck! So this is a big CAUTION TO THE WISE RUN RUN RUN AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL!!!!
