I attended Sanford Brown Institute in 2010 and it was quite honestly the worst mistake I made in my entire life. If possible please email me at [email protected] to join the class action suit.

To all the students who attended these colleges I totally agree. I attended the campus in Atl. did the MA program there and one year later am still job hunting. Let's face the facts the students do not get enough clinicals to prepare for the real world, and 180 hrs of internship is not sufficient, lots of theory hardly any clinicals. A recent employer looked at my resume' and stated "you really do not have enough experience". So although she loved my personality and work ethics the experience was inadequate. Almost all of my former classmates and pass students are facing the same thing. Then there is the headache of student loans, and bear in mind those who have a family, plus utilities and still no MA job is forth coming. Its truly disappointing. What a total disaster.

This is utter crap. Everyone here complaining about the useless degree can shove it. Yes it is useless. Clearly you're just as useless because you got suckered into the crap. Not only that, you wanted a quick easy way out. Well you got you're quick and easy, now enjoy the repercussions.
Joe ~ Are you really that big of an asshole that you think everyone is looking for an easy way out? If they were, why would they put in their time at the school, find out when they try to sit for the exams that they can't because they were lied to about their course...it's not an accredited course. Most of the students worked full time while attending this scam school, yeah that sounds pretty lazy to me. I think you should take your attitude and your mouth somewhere more suited to your type of personality.~ Just saying

IAM AT SANFORD BROWN COLLEGE AND THEY LIED TO ME ABOUT GETTING THE HELP I NEED TO DO BETTER, AND WHEN THEY DID GIVE ME HELP MOST OF THE TIME THEY WAS ON THE PHONE OR WATCHING PROGRAM ON THE COMPUTER. SANFORD BROWN COLLEGE PROGRAM IS REALLY A TWO YEAR PROGRAM NOT A FIVE WEEK PROGRAM. I HAVE LEARNED SOME THINGS, BUT YOU DON'T GIVE ANY TIME TO STUDY YOU ARE GIVING SO MUCH HOMEWORK WHICH HAVE T BE DONE IN TWO DAY. HALF THE TEACHER DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THE TEACHER BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE THE CLASS AND THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT SO THE DO WHAT EVERY ANY SAID WHAT EVERY. I CAN'T GIVE NO NAME BUT ONE OF THE TEACHER TOLD ME I NEED TO GET A MONTHLY CHECK INSTEAD. THEIR ENROLLMENT IS GOING ALL THEY WAY DOWN. AND WHY IN THE WORLD WE HAVE WAIT TEN WEEK OR MORE TO GET OUR MONEY, BUT ONCE ONE SIGN THOSE PAPAER THEY GET THEIR RIGHT AWAY. SANFORD BROWN IS NOT CREDIT SCHOOL THEY LIE ON THAT.
You're right. Sanford Brown is horrendous. I attended Trevose, PA. But I'm pretty sure nobody is going to understand even half of what you're trying say. You need to go to a grammar school, not a med school.

Hollywood smiles in Tampa Florida is a joke. This company will take advantage of a person in pain and over charge you for an extraction. Run and stay away from this pace!!!!!

I would love to get involved with this law suit. they did give poor education. I attended the Hazelwood campus and it was very ghetto. people always fighting and the teachers we very unprofessional. We were promised assistance with job placement. And they lied about that. Staff were stilling money from the students accounts and charging you for your loan even before you were finished with school. I was the last class to graduate from there. And still have no job as a medical assistant due to them having no accreditation which they told use that they had.
what a crock

Is the lawsuit still going on? I attended in collinsville and graduated in 07. Although I have paid back a portion of my loan, as soon as I found out my degree was useless and they lied about their creditation, I began to try to fight it. Now they have closed their locations around here without notice.
so not only are the credits I earned considered crap and non transferble, but I cant even go back to the school I got them from and further my education...which was promised as well.
Now they have put thia loan on my credit and I have no way of removing it. Help!?

I am sorry to hear so many sad stories. It is very important to do research before choosing a school. Your research includes if the program is accredited, how many students get jobs after graduation and so on.
Good luck! http://www.ultrasoundtechniciancenter.org/

SBC, has ripped off, and the Gorverment.. I've got 19k in loans and NO JOB! In the field I went to school for, So therefore they need absorb the whole cost of this loan.. And the government need to do some investigation work on these vocational schools , cause they are getting paid big time, plus bonuses..

I hope Im not to late.Im from the SBI in Trevose PA class of 2008.Never got a job. We was lied to. The teachers was giving the answers. I signed up for ultrasound but was told i had to go for a medical assistant afterwards.I was told that the credits was transferable. I went into depression behind that school. And got to pay for something i had no success in. They guaranteed to find us a job.
