Hi all. I am currently a MedVance student and can I please just stay that that school sucks. I picked them because they are the only school around for the program that I am in, therefore I had little to no other choice. Back in the day when they were Cumberland School of Tech, they could not be beaten or even come close but now they truly suck. The education that you get is lame, they try and treat you like you are 5 yrs old. I have heard that they are or have been under investigation for not giving the students the money that they borrowed and can say from experience that I have run into this also. They still owe me from last year, but when asked about it,(after argueing that they did not owe me anymore until I kept on and made them add what I had gotten versus what I had borrowed) they said that they could not get it to me yet because pell grants had not yet come in..HELLO THIS IS FROM LAST YEAR, PELL GRANTS HAVE BEEN IN FOR A LONG TIME!! They want to call and hound the crap out of you if you owe them but when they owe you it is a whole diferent story. They try and make it like they are about the students..BULL CRAP!! they are only about the money there. I did have some wonderful instructors that is one good aspect of the school, that and the going only 4 days a week. MedVance is way over priced, its a total rip off, for what we pay we should get a whole lot more then what we do. To anyone thinking of MedVance for a choice.. think long and hard. Look at other options and try if you can to find somewhere else.

Med Vance is worthless. Just wait until you try to get a job.

I did not know that was a course the offered. Christmas break starts on the 23rd until the 4th. I am happy that MedVance was able to help you, however in the course that I am in and the people I have dealt with lately there is little to no help at all. I can't even get a straight answer. Sad Really.

I am personally acquainted with the director of nurses at a local facility and she has told me multiple times that if the resume says medvance then it is not even considered. They are not very well accredited.

i went there to sign up for school, and as soon as they started explaining how everything worked, i knew right then and there it was a joke. i personally think the school should be closed, you can't even get a full scholarship there, that is bull crap to me. i think they only want to put the money in there own pockets, and i also have friends that attend medvance, they are also having the same problem with there pell grants.
