$24,500 for an associates degree? That's more than it would cost to get a bachelors from TTU! Outrageous!

I'm an Instructor at Medvance and it's true, it is a joke. They don't have proper working medical equipment and the books they use are outdated. Students pay top dollar for books and Medvance pockets most of the money. Most of my students are not getting jobs in their field. They are no better off then when they started. Vocational Colleges like Medvance are in trouble and they are not making the same money they use too. So they take anybody that knocks on their door. Even a retarted student. Which could not fucntion but they pushed her through the system anyways, for the sake of money......

Most students who enter a school like Medvance, want something fast and easy. That's why they get sucked into a rip off situation. At the beginning they will tell you anything you want to here just to get you in the door. Remember, these are sales people, no different than a car sales person. They make a living on the new students, you can't trust desperate people. The manager of each location is judged on how many new students they bring in, not the quality of education. Quality of education is not on their plate. The retention of instructors is very poor, they go through them like toilet paper. The schools are goverened by sales people not the instructors. They treat the instructors like shit. So very little is done in raising the quality of education.....

I am a student at MedVance and they do care what happens to their students. From what I have seen, the people who drop have some sort of life issues that keeps them from staying in school. The others that drop are typically the complainers that will never be happy no matter where they attend school and usually have the worst attendance. The sad part is that these are the types of things that happen in every school. Those who complain the most are just covering for their inability to do the things they need to be successful. Success takes a lot of work....obviously some just don't want to work to be successful. If you believe these complainers you will end up like them....sad.

It's obvious with your comment that ignorance is not always bliss. I would gladly have a battle of wits with you but you are unarmed! If you have something worthwhile to state, please do so. If you want to continue to show your ignorance, please spare us.

so tell us sweetgirl90 what program are you taking at Medvance? You seem to know alot about the school but have yet to tell what program you are taking. sounds to me like with the comments that you are making that you are in fact NOT a student, but an employee at Medvance trying to make yourself and the school look good.....what would be really sad is if you were in fact an employee and you are on here posting comments as a student that would be a REALLY SAD FORM OF HUMANITY on your part and the schools..I would think you would have better things to do with your time!

What's really sad is that you have the time to keep writing on this site and still haven't made a point about anything! By the way....Medical Lab program. Get a life.......

did Medvance change its name to Fortis and go through all that advertising to get the new name out there, only to be changed back to Medvance just a few short months later? That makes NO sense.

And now supposedly offering HVAC? How is that medical?????

I have been going to MedVance for some time. The President of the campus came to our classroom and explained that the school here has done nothing wrong. There's an issue the with branch campuses in Florida and that is being resolved soon. They expect everything to be resolved soon and return to Fortis next year. The people are great at the school and I don't see that changing no matter what their name is. My understanding is that they offer HVAC now to offer more to the community than just medical. I also heard that they will offer truck driving next year. I think this is great for Cookeville and surrounding area.
