My initial impression from the time I wasQuite BrightComputer Engineering
My initial impression from the time I was applying for admission into Hallmark was not questionable from the beginning. I was a transfer student from a real "accredited" university and I was getting the run around on what credits would transfer over or not. I reached a point where I was turned off and made an attempt to walk away. The advisor brought someone else in and she provided me with a education plan and highlighted the classes I would get credit for. I went along and completed enrollment. On a prior to starting the term we met with the school's president and drank some of the Hallmark's cool aid and promise their number one priority was the students. After 6 months of going through the program, I became disillusioned as I was able to conclude their number one priority if to satisfy their enrollment of students from one week to the next. I experience several issues with the registrar's office placing me in the wrong classes and when I attempted to reach out to the instructor's, I got no response. I elevated the issue with the Program's Dean with no success. I was pretty much told the predicament I was placed into by the registrar's office had been addressed and that it would not happen again. My last term there proved to be very challenging as the class I was place in was a level 6 class and they had skipped me from taking the first 5 prerequisite classes. I manage to complete and pass the class, but they made the same error again for an upcoming term...even when the Dean of the program had promised me it would not happen again. It became obvious the school did not have my best interest in mind and they really didn't care if I managed to pass or not...they would still get paid regardless. I elected to drop the program/school and go back to the path I was on with another local, legitimate, university.

I recently graduated from Hallmark College.Other
I recently graduated from Hallmark College. They promised job placement after graduation with stress on externship site. My externship site had no interest in hiring anyone and I have been unemployed since graduation. I have an associates degree in Medical Assisting and a RMA license. My family paid out of pocket way too much money for this school for me to be sitting here without a job. Unless you are planning on spending tons of money to advance to another University after graduating from Hallmark, do not waste your time or money here. As sweet as some of the staff are, it doesn't help the fact that I basically have a useless piece of paper sitting on my desk that claims to be an associates degree.

Do not attend this college.Super BrilliantAerospace Engineering
Do not attend this college. The staff will mislead you. Once you are in this school, you realize how cheap your surroundings are and what type of teachers and students go here. They will not explain to you the most basic of things and they are very deceitful when it comes to enrolling you. They are FOR PROFIT. They dont care about anything but numbers and money. By going to this school, you will get caught up in a contract and they will try to force you to continue going here and use scare tactics so you dont quit. If you do quit, they will harass you to pay them money that they say you owe them because of the contract. They dont' tell you this when you sign up for the school. The classroom environment is of trailer quality and so are the rest of the facilities. Money first and student last here at Hallmark. You are better off going to a major San Antonio university for the money you will pay at this school. Credits here are very hard to transfer to a major school and honestly, when you even mention that you are attending this school, people look at youwith a face of pity. DO NOT GO HERE! Safe yourself the grieve and headaches.
