My daughter's ready to graduate as a medial assistant! She's excited and so am I. Thanks, MTI!
Mti has its pros and cons just like anywhere you go. – I attended Mti College and I wouldn't say it's the worst college in Sacramento. I will say that the staff makes and break the experience. There were few teachers that I absolutely adored and there are teachers who I wouldn't want to ever see again. I can't stand the financial aid staff they are some of the least helpful and most disrespectful teachers ever. What I learned at Mti was helpful and furthered me in my career choice. I would have to agree with the review that you need to make your opinion about this school. They were very helpful with fitting classes around my schedule. There is a fair number of teachers that will take their time and help or stay after class and will try to help you understand something. There are other teachers that will give you the feeling that he or she would rather be somewhere else. This is college you can't expect someone to hold your hand and tell it's OK you do better on the next test. It's not going to happen. This is a fast-paced school its meant to get you out in sort period of time. So if you have time a little extra time and don't want to fast track your career I would suggest going to a Community college. But if you have a tight schedule and need a fairly quick education to start your career off it couldn't hurt you. My overall experience wasn't horrible, but it wasn't fantastic. I think that you should make your own opinions though. Ones person's opinion shouldn't dictate your entire choice. I hope this will help someone.
Fast and Thorough Education – I attend MTI and I am a student in their Business Administration degree program, and I would definitely recommended this college over any other especially after wasting my time at ARC. The classes are small and their placement department found me a job after my first year. The second year classes are offered at night and parking can be a little tight, but it is free. Love this college so far!
I just got a job – Thanks MTI - I just got a job in the legal field. They have great teachers and helped me with my resume. Sure I had to look for the opening on the internet but they were looking for me also. My advice work hard while in school, and network for the open positions.
Do not waste your time or money here! – I graduated from MTI in 2010 as a Medical Assistant with a 4.0 GPA and Honors.
It was a complete waste of time.
First off, they don't teach everything an MA needs. They do not cover suture removal, wound care, lavage, or any other number of things that are needed on the day-to-day job.
Secondly, they're "externship" program is a joke. After you get your "training", you work at a doctor's office for a few weeks with real patients...except where I was placed (and I've been told this is the norm) that you end up working on everything else except patients. I was stuck doing file work for about two weeks, and was told point blank, "you do this more than anything until you get some experience"....isn't an externship where you get hands on training working on patients? If what they are saying is true, then why in the heck is there even an externship anyway?
Lastly, don't even think about getting any use from their placement services. First off, they tell you to do most of the work, where you go out and post your resume and apply for jobs you find on your own. Then, they use your hard work and place their "pet students" in positions you've applied for and give them the school's recommendation instead of you. This happened several times to me, where I would post my app and list I was a graduate, then tell the school where I applied for, and hear time and and time again that other students (who got lesser grades than I did AND heard about a couple of students who were only able to complete their training with my help because they could not finish their lessons on their own and needed outside assistance from me) where given the direct recommendation from the "placement department" and I was left holding the bag and without a job.
Run, do not walk, far away from this school. It is nothing more than a diploma mill and is only after you for your money.
MTI hates older women – I won't even dignify this "school" with a rating. I submitted my application in January 2011. THREE DAYS BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS AND 3 1/2 months after initiallally applying,AND countless delays, the "board" determined my money was not good enough for them to be accepted. Because of their time-consuming charades, another semester has passed. I must take my educational grants and my hard earned money elsewhere. I am disgusted by their treatment!
Great Job MTI – My daughter graduates from CSUC and can't find a job after a year of looking. She then goes to MTI College and after a year gets her paralegal certificate and has a job a week after graduating. And she makes more $ than any of her friends. I guess a four year college degree is not worth as much anymore :-(
Great Cosmetology School – I just finished the Final Phase Program at Paul Mitchell the School - MTI College and that was the best thing that I could have done to get ready for my state board. All the learning leaders were amazing, and I don't think I would have passed without it. If you're going to school for cosmetology, you definitely want to go here.
MTI College is worth it! – Loyalsoul, I can appreciate your right to share your opinion, but question how you think the teachers and staff are so great but give the school a low rating. I felt I needed to respond. I worked as a student intern in the graduate placement department at MTI. As you must know the college has a long history and a solid reputation with employers in our community. While it is true that the graduate percentages are calculated on those students who are activated with the department, in order to count in those figures, they need to be working in their field. And not working at McDonalds like you posted! And why would you expect them to be accountable for people who did not care to register for placement services? MTI is a good college, but like anything, you have to do your part to make it a success.
TRUTH ABOUT MTI – I decided to make an account just to comment on MTI. I sure wished some one told me the truth about schools before I sign up. So I am willing to say it out. I have no reason to lie. People will have to pay a lot of money to go to this school so they should know what they are in for.
MTI is not a bad school. I had a great experience at MTI. The teachers really help you when you need it and are willing to work with you and your situation. There were definitely a lot of awesome and truly caring teachers at that school. I learned a lot there. The students were also really cool I made some friends that I think I will be friends with for a long time. The small class sizes are very helpful also. They have study hall available for help. There is usually always an available computer lab for you to work on homework, projects, or to surf the net.
MTI costs a lot of money (just as any other vocational school). If you are not one of the students who's tuition is getting paid for through some program or unemployment, paying back student loans really blow. There is no guarantee you will get a job and depending on what program you go to MTI for career services arent that big of a help and can be useless. PLEASE FULLY READ THIS NEXT PART> I personally chose to go to MTI because it said there was a 96% graduation rate. I heard advertisements from MTI saying even with the tough economy their students were still getting hired. THIS WAS WHAT LEAD ME TO MY DECISION IN GOING TO MTI. What they failed to mention was there employment rate of 96% are only of the ones who graduate and signed up with career services. That means if 100 people graduate and only 10 people signed up with career services and 8 people got a job they would say they have an 80% grad. rate. Not only that even if a graduate finds a job they don't necessarily work in the field they went to school for. That means if you graduate then get a job at McDonalds you will be included into that employent percentage.
I sure wished I knew this before I enrolled into this school and piled thousands of dollars in loan over my head.
Overall I had a good experience at MTI but if I could go back and change my decision I would not have gone to this school.
But it is your decision to determine if this is your right path or not. My intent is not to convince some one to go or not go to this school. I just think students showed know what they are in for before they make the decision.
