I am giving a semi negative review becauseAverageOther
I am giving a semi negative review because i am disgusted with how rude people are over the phone to me and unhelpful. The website is not very informative. I did take a speech class and the professor never emailed back or ever, ever updated us with our grades. I now am going to RVC for medical coding and it says absolutely nothing about pre reqs, pretty important to know. When I called the woman was from the 'catalog or course schedule' phone number was very rude to me, told me i can register "in October" and told me i had about four pre reqs and pretty much was no help. I then called the general number , the girl was nicer, put me on hold and I was now told I only have two pre reqs. Its tough to get an app. with a counselor if you have a life and can't just get into any random time slot. So i'll probably have to just go up there one day and try to figure it out. I searched high and low on their website for this info it is not there. online, it looks like you can just get right in to the program (most other programs at least list pre reqs so you can be informed). Would be nice if this info for that class was online (somewhere!) and if the people were more informative, helpful and acted like they actually cared about giving you the CORRECT INFO (kinda important). whenever I call, everyone acts like they don't want to help. I am unsure if this is normal for colleges but I was upset that I couldn't get the correct simple info

Their website is so convoluted and confusing itAveragePreMed and Medical
Their website is so convoluted and confusing it will make you crazy. Communication is not good because they don't return phone calls and rarely respond to emails. The two guidance counselors I spoke with acted as if they were so disinterested and indifferent it was a waste of time, and it was like pulling teeth to get all of the information necessary. The Biology class I just finished required a textbook - teacher never had us open it once...big waste of money. I would not recommend this college.

I've attended for 1 year and now thinkingQuite BrightComputer Engineering
I've attended for 1 year and now thinking of quitting and going to a REAL college. They are a joke!!. The classes are too easy I'm get 100% A's with little to no effort whats so ever. Heck don't even try to email them if you have a question, 95% of the time you will not get a answer (especially if its a online class!!!). After acing my recent class, which directly dealt with the career path I am interested in, there was a offer for a internship to a local firm. My Prof said send him a resume and he would get back to me about more details. Can you guess what happened next???. You got it no response, none. I got a 100% A in the class!!!. So now all that money was wasted on these classes because of a bad mouthing professor. You ask why is he a bad mouthing Professor, because I emailed my info directly to the firm that was offering the internships. Can you guess what happen next?? nothing, no response whatsoever, yet this firm has a ad on Craigslist for those very positions.
