Original review posted by user Oct 05, 2011

I am trying to start a class action suit against Brown Mackie. I received an associate's degree there and transfered to another school for nursing only to find that my classes from Brown Mackie would not transfer.

This was something Brown Mackie failed to tell me. I assumed that since some of my previous course work transfered in, that my credits there would also transfer out. Nope. Now I owe a tremedous amout of money for knowledge that I couldn't even pass the certification test for medical assiting with.

Again, I am trying to get as many people as possible that feel this way so that I can start a class action suit.

Please respond to krystalseals@aol.com if you are interested! Thanks!

Monetary Loss: $20.

I also wasted my money with bmc. They told me my credits would transfer to a four year college.

Like another poster, I had credits that transferred in to I didn't think much of it.

However, I WAS ABLE TO GET CAPELLA UNIVERSITY TO ACCEPT (SOME) OF THE CREDITS.

I think they are the only school who will take some not all.

I too received an associates degree from Brown Mackie. I wanted to further my education (not with them cause they suck), but my degree will not be recognized anywhere.

If I had know that, I would not have enrolled there. It's a scam and there needs to be concequeces for this.

I wasted 2 years and now I have a debt and I'm not really equipped to even get a job I have a degree in! I feel so ripped off!

I just previously went back to school after completing the practical nursing program at Brown Mackie in 2010. I to owe so much money for credits that would not transfer.

I will never be able to get out of debit. They increased the tuition at least 3 times in the 16 months I was a student.

Not to mention, obligating you to only buy there books.

Sorry I also forgot to mention that I tried to go to a local collage few yrs back in 09 & was told that none of my credits would transfer. I would have to start all over & go into bigger debt.

I will call the Ohio attorney generals office regarding this as well.

Thank you lissa winland

I just received a associates degree in criminal justice at BM, and I can't not one college that accepts my credits. I want to proceed with my bachelor degree in forensics, but the schools are telling me I have to start all over.

This is so upsetting becausethis school is very expensive and they did not tell me this when I sign up.

I will be contacting a lawyer about my case. creed720@hotmail.com

I went to Brown Mackie college in Akron, Ohio for the early childhood program. I had to leave school to help my father who had gotten cancer and when trying to return they informed me that they no longer offered my program.

Even though I had already completed and passed all of my ECE classes and I only needed 2 prerequisite classes to finish my degree there was nothing that they could do for me. I am now stick passing back more than $20,000 for a degree that I pretty mooch completed but do not have.

I have had the same horrible issues with Brown Mackie. I currently attend the campus in New Mexico and this school is a complete joke.

They are telling me that I need to pay $250 a month to stay in school or they will kick me out!!! After putting in over $20,000. This school only wants your money and none of the credits transfer. I have waisted almost 2 years of my life and have spent a lot of money that I will have to pay back with nothing to show for it!!!!

I would love to be part of this lawsuit!!

I am currently a student at brown Mackie in birmingham. I have noticed a lot of things such as teachers not really being qualified to teach.

Just because they did the job doesn't make them educators. I was going to transfer to another college. Brown Mackie said my credits are transferable yet no schools will accept my credits.

I am royally pissed because I have spent 13 months and $20000 for nothing. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL IT WILL *** ON THE LONG RUN!
