Brown Mackie is less than honest. | Brown Mackie College review from Phoenix, Arizona

2.0
Details
I was at the start of my divorce, and I was looking to do what I always wanted to...start a medical career I wanted when I graduated high school. I picked Brown Mackie, because it fit into my life...one class a month. I wouldn't have been able to do it otherwise. Then I graduated...only to find out that their financial aid department and career services department was a joke. I graduated with a zero balance, and 8 months later "they cleaned out accounts" and was an overage in my account of $1236. They were supposed to send me a check so I can endorse it back to them...that never happened. This matter should've been taken care of at my exit interview?? There is no talking to any of them...they turned my account over to collections. Nobody is interested in clearing this up, I'm just supposed to pay a debt that was nonexistent at my exit interview? I'm probably gonna end up paying it, because it's the only way I can get my transcripts, and because I don't want this to end up in some legal matter. As for the career services...Absolutely NO help whatsoever. I have been out of school for 3 1/2 years...the only job I got was a 3 1/2 temporary assignment, because of Steve Hamiliton, who is no longer with them...I can't imagine why!!!! Brown Mackie is the worst school to be associated with. Next time I'll go to a REAL college.

Most of the Career Services Departments in schools don't help the graduate find a job, you can go into the office and look at listings, but it is strictly up to you to go out and apply for the jobs, and "ACE" the interview. If you obtain a job bagging groceries the Career Services Department still considers that job, placement. I have never heard of any school having an exit interview when a student graduates.

Well, if that's the case the shouldn't tell their potential students that they do. I did have an exit interview...that's when I got my cap and gown, and my financial obligation was zero.

Brown Mackie College - Program Review from Fenton, Missouri

WORST PLACE EVER !!!!!!!! i wouldnt recommend it to anyyone for anything! Its allllll about money at that school. I was in the nursing program (only 18 months) and after going through about 15 teachers, new dean, president and constant bs 'lab time' clinicals im out of that *** hole.. The only thing the staff is worried a month before graduation is making sure we pass boards so they keep their jobs.... They are supposed to help us get there from the start isnt that what we paid for ???? Hate the place, dont like staff, and thank god im out of there with my degree and passed NCLEX. Sorry for anyone who even thinks of going there.....

Brown Mackie lied and credits are not transferable. | Brown Mackie College review from Miami, Florida

They lied. Started school in 2007 and still can't transfer any credit and it's 2015. They will tell you with a straight face yes the credits you can go to any school just to find out brown mackie is not what they say that are. The teachers and staff has no training and going to class is useless because they don't train or teach you. They just want your money. No degree but loans I have to pay back. All I wanted was a career and they killed that dream by lying to us. No hope just failure. I wouldn't recommand no one. 7864595129

Brown Mackie College Loan Review

Details
Brown Mackie College has ruined my credit because of my inability to pay back student loans.I was told that the remainder of monies not used would be returned. BMC never returned the money. My loans are over 20,000 dollars. IRS and Federal loans are garnishing wages. They took 10.000 dollars of my husbands military disability. I don't have the AS degree because the loan isn't paid off.

Brown Mackie College - Loan Review from Columbus, Ohio

My friend's husband works in the financial aid dept. He was a mortgage loan officer , we know how they put people into houses they can't afford. He does the same thing with students. Everyone person that I've met that work at my office . They are in debt and most of their credits didn't transfer. So now they go to a State College so they can complete their degree.

How bought *** no you'll never see anymore of my money, do yourself a favor never go here....

Brown Mackie College - Program Review from Bisbee, Arizona

I attended Brown Mackie College in Cincinnati from March 2014 until November 2014 while trying to proceed with a teaching degree for 2 years of college. Although, I never finished my two years I decided I wanted too switch my program halfway through out the program to criminal justice. This aggravated me because when I signed up for the college I told the woman in the admissions office that I wanted to receive a associates degree in criminal justice and she insisted to convenience me otherwise. Then here it is halfway through the school year I am changing my program from ECE to criminal justice just like how I wanted it when I first signed up. I changed my program to bachelor's within the financial aid office and find to come out the VERRY rude egotistical financial aid officer rushed me through my paperwork and made me sign papers that I could not read because he wanted to go home. Two months later I received a letter in the mail stating that I owe Brown Mackie $402 dollars. I was confused at first considering this is the first time attending college and I was told by financial aid in the beginning that I did not have to pay on my school loans until up to year after graduating. I reported to the financial aid office to resolve the issue and they told me that the man that did my paperwork for financial aid quit a week after doing my paperwork!! That shows he planned on quitting therefore he didn't give a care to throw me an extra 400 bucks on my higher one card. Than the financial aid officer had enough AUDACITY to point the finger at me and blame me for the issue because I should have called them and told them. How should I have known when it was normal to receive so much cash back each semester. That's what really aggravated me and he told me I had to pay for their MISTAKES! Thereforem I quit at the end of November. Than today..3 months later I receive a threatening email from Brown Mackie explaining I owe them money and if I do not pay them they are auditing me too the credit bureaus. Not fair! So, I called the toll free number and a woman answered the phone with her name but couldn't even address the company. I had to ask, is this brown Mackie college? She responded, yes. So I explained her my issue and I asked for her to repeat it again because I was still unsure of what was going on. The woman got rude with me and said "I JUST EXPLAINED TO YOU WHAT WAS GOING ON!" I carried on and kept my cool. Then she explained I was getting these emails and being charged for the month of December 12 & 20 when I wasn't even attending Brown Mackie cOllege in the month of December and I had proof! They don't even have legit attendance sheets anyways because they pass the class voucher around and anyone can sign your name when you wasn't even in class. She argued with me on the phone because I told her how the situation ACTUALLY played out and she did not want to hear the truth. Without being said.. This school is a freaking joke! It is nothing but poor moraled corporate junkies all fighting for a salary Ben fit. They are not worried about their students they are too worried about getting their sign on bonuses. The classes are cheap and poor managed considering they let most students walk all over the teachers and when they want to blame the teachers instead of the hood rats coming into the school being disrespectful and RACIST because some of us students are white!!! The only thing good I can say about the school is a few teachers and most of them resigned anyways because the school is a hoax. If you want any worth of your money for a degree that is worth having go to another institute like Miami Jacobs down the road instead of messing with this drug infested corporate stealing lieing FAKE conspiracy career college!!!

Did you just call people 'hood rats' and 'racist' all in the same sentence? Wow. You wrote a very long grammatically incorrect dissertation, too.

I was attending Brown Mackie College for the past 6 months and doing well in their Nursing program. On Monday without any warning they called over 50 of us into a meeting and basically told us as of today we are back out on the streets!!!!!! I'm mad as *** because I worked real hard to try and achieve an educational dream , that no one else had done in my family and that was to graduate from college and be a Nurse. We had nothing to do with their problem, my grades were good, my attendance was good and I had a good attitude because I really got into my classes. Now they want me to do GED CLASSES when I already have a high school diploma. They trying to say its because my high school was not accredited[so the *** what] I passed all of your classes!!! I'm mad as *** and I don't know what to do.

Whether or not a high school is accredited makes a big difference for a lot of things. It is a really big deal when a high school gets a certain type of accreditation. I can't remember what the type is but do some research on your high school and see what is going on.
