Student Reviews and Ratings for Midwest Institute
Over priced 👎🏻 (Almost $15k!) Wish I would have looked into st.louis school of phlebotomy’s medical assisting program (website says $1800) before enrolling here. (Fenton campus) First instructor I had was absolutely useless. Never answered any of our questions and wasn’t very helpful. Thankfully she was fired shortly after I enrolled. Second instructor was amazing. Majority of our supplies like gloves, test tubes, needles, etc was expired. How pricey it is you’d think you’d get up to date equipment, guess not. 👎🏻Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Midwest Institute in Fenton was honestly the worst experience I've ever had and I caution anyone who is considering going there, DO NOT waste your time, energy and money. The school was ran so loosely that no one knew what was going on at any given time. The educators and administration had zero communication and the "education" I received was subpar to say the very least. The entire program was really a sad joke. When I entered the work force on my internship (which I had to coordinate myself, even though we were assured that would be a part of the program) I was not even remotely prepared for any of the things I would be doing. It was truly an embarrassment to be lacking so many "basic" skills that I should have learned in school. Everything I know and the skills I am using as a Medical Assistant I was taught by the doctors and MAs I shadowed on my internship, not by Midwest Institute. "Classes" consisted of our instructor having us sit in the classroom for 6 hours and do "book work" AKA play on our phones and listen to her talk about her personal relationship and family drama. Then she'd have us cram for a test and take it the next day. We weren't allowed to review the test to see what we got wrong and why. The "homework" was never checked. We had maybe 10 or less "lab days" which consisted of an hour or less in actual hands on training. Most of which was HER doing it and us watching instead of actually practicing ourselves. Overall I feel like I wasted $15,000 and a year of my life. Literally the ONLY plus that came from the entire experience was the friends I made suffering through the same nonsense as myself. Horrible horrible school. 10/10 DO NOT recommend.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I would never recommend anyone to attend this school. You pay tons in tuition and are told by Amy that you will have 32-34 credits to transfer to another college just to find out it is a lie. She even stated these credits were transferable over the phone and then when my current college informed me they are not she denied ever stating that and hung up on me and refuses to accept my calls. I now have college credits and a 3.8gpa that accounts for nothing. TOTAL SCAM!!!!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I really wanted to attend this school but had some issues with transportation and I was also homeless...the admissions rep told me I was wasting their time and she didn’t think I wanted to go to school because I was struggling and needed a bit more time before I could start...she didn’t want to work with me and stopped returning my calls and emails after she told me how she felt..Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Ill give the school that the teachers are amazing. Some of the nicest and smartest ive had. They are the best thing about it. However. The woman that does the financial aid/tours didnt help at all. She didnt tell me this program would be 90% test grades. If I would have known this I would have never signed up. So i tried anyways. It didnt work for me. If you wanna be a Vet Tech you need to know that this is not an easy program its extremely fast past. It would be good for someone that knows how to study well or that doesnt have a social life cause this school will take it away with the amount of studying you have to do. When I quit the school apparently the financial aid woman there didnt finish my financial aid (I had been there 3 months) and was calling me back in after I quit cause she needed tax papera from me. Very unorganized. On top of all that there is a massive amount of drama here. I was there a week and people were trying to start stuff with me. Not so friendly. If you want to do this program know youll have to work your ass off for it and possibly deal with some unorganized and rude people.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
