It was only a 9 month course granted BUT I don't think it was worth it & the loan I had to take out was a waste of money. I was & still am disappointed with this institution! Also this school IS NOT ACCREDITED PEOPLE when I started college I had to retake classes I had already taken in Sanford Brown disappointing and frustrating so basically I had to start from scratch. Do lots of research before going to this school and make sure it's for you. Best of luck!!

Overall Rating:

The school should have been a lot more responsible to their students especially when it came to realistic expectations. Supposedly, we were being trained to start a career and get work upon graduating but it didn't happen for everybody. Instead of just collecting money (tuition) they should have dealt truthfully with the people who trusted them.

Truthfully this school wasn't for me, I went for medical billing & coding. I should have researched the field more before I got involved with this school, but lesson learned. I will say that i did have some nice instructors, but i took out a student loan which was a waste of money.

BIG "FOR PROFIT" SCHOOL SCAM, DONT GO HERE12 former students filed a lawsuit against Sanford–Brown College in texas and its parent company, Career Education Corporation, alleging that Sanford–Brown engaged in aggressive and misleading recruiting tactics and misled them about the transferability of Sanford–Brown's credits and the nature of its curriculum and training. 4 nursing students filed a class action lawsuit alleging that the college ;quot, fraudulently induced them and the class to join a medical assistant program through a number of deceptive acts;quot In late 2010, this lawsuit was granted class action status.SAME BS TODAY IN 2015

If I could give less than 1 star I would! I attended an ultrasound program back in '09, and what a disappointment it was! I was promised small classes, individualized attention from the teachers, all the study material I'll need to pass my exams, and extensive support from all faculty when it comes to review classes and job placement. They're really good at selling their program in the beginning, but once you sign up and pay them the story changes. The classes were too big (18 people were in my class, and only 4 working ultrasound machines!), and full of people who would not even qualify to work at a Macdonald's. The teachers might know the material, but are unable to properly teach the students what they need to know. There was too much material left out during the lectures, for which the students were responsible to learn on their own, but without proper explanation it's impossible to do so. Sharing each machine with 5 or 6 people might not sound too bad, but trust me no one got enough time to learn how to scan. And how can anyone expect one teacher to be able to help out every student when there isn't enough time? There were plenty of days when I didn't get any time on the machine at all, all I could do is watch others scan and hope that there might be enough time left in the class for me to practice as well. Honestly, I could go on and on about how bad this "school" is. After they get your money, don't expect to get any support from anyone, you will be on your own to teach yourself what you need to know to obtain a job in your field of study. I don't know about other branches of this school, but stay away from this particular one. Do your research, don't listen to the school representatives (they're just salesmen), look up the lawsuit history against this school! Save yourself the wasted time, energy and money and go to a different school otherwise you'll be sorry. I wish I knew how big of a mistake I was making before I lost so much.
