Tuition & Financial Aid:
I think this school would be super great if the tuition wasn't so high. my financial aid covered most of it but I wasn't planning to pay out of pocket. Hopefully my career will pay it off in the end

My Experience With Online Classes – My school doesn't offer online classes. When I was in high school I took 4 online classes: Emplyability Skill, Spanish< Art and Music. They were easy but I didn't like them very much. It was a lot of work and it took a lot of time. I had three online classes in one school day that were 50 assignments each. I worked really hard and to my luck I passed them all with high marks. My teacher in my Emplyability skills class didn't really like me or the 50 other students too much because we did our work late. But that was only because our principal enrolled us in a class that started Jan. 4 and ended on Feb 2. on Jan. 15. We had a lot of catching up to do and some of us barely passed. But I did! I enjoy online work. It probably would've been better and less pressure if I didn't have three classes in one day, though.

If I Could Do It All Over~I Wouldn't – Everest Institute is not for everyone. I thought it was for me but I'm not so sure anymore. I love all the people that I have met so far. I love my teacher and my classmates so much that when I leave here I am going to cry so hard. I couldn't ask for better friends here. I go to school with people that are decades older than me and it doesn't even feel like it. However, I don't feel comfortable AT ALL with the faculty. If I had a problem, I wouldn't go to them for help. I would talk to my friends or the other students. Although, I would ask my teacher because she is as cool as the students. I absolutely hate talking to my financial aid advisor or any other faculty in this school. They are the upmost misereable people in this school. They never smile or aound happy when they greet new people. But just because they act the way they do doesn't make me feel bad, becasue I know that i can always turn to my friends who always smile even if they don't want to. To answer the other part of the question about what makes my school so unique, is that the students here are more of a family with each other than they are with the faculty and staff. If we could do it all over we would do it together.

The Weight of the World on My Shoulders – I love school. So far, I have learned so many things about Medical Insurance Billing and Coding. I love my classmates dearly and my teacher is like a mother to me. However, the financial aid department in my school frightens me. My Genesis loan was canceled and my payments have increased. I am expected to pay $101 a month in school and $180 out of school. I come from a family of 8. My mother is a single parent and she is our only source of income. I am 19 years old and I have never had a job before. I've tried so hard and looked everywhere. I have probably applied for 30 different restaurants, 15 department stores and over 50 different fast food chains and no one has hired me. I 've went on 15 interviews out of the 100 places I have applied for and I didn't get the job. I feel hopeless now. I already have a late payment on my loan. I don't know how I'm going to pay for school. Everest promised me that they would put me on a Work Study program, and there were two options: Work in school and file papers all day or work out of school at a middle school 3 miles away from the school. Since I don't have a car or I'm am not liscenced yet, I chose to work in school. I waited for 3 months for that job and I was told that there was a "freeze" in the work study jobs for in school and that I would have to wait longer. I recently applied for 6 jobs online and I have been calling and visiting them everyday. They still are not hiring. I have another loan payment coming up on Feb. 5 and I have no clue how to pay for it. I have no money. My family is struggling to make ends meet. All I want is to succeed in life. But it just seems like there are so many things in my way that are stopping me from getting there. I don't want to quit school. But sometimes I feel that I have to in order to save money. My bus fare is about $10 every two weeks and I have to get that from all my family members. I have to get money from my mom for the bus and she's the one buying my food, clothes, paying my loans and my orthodonist bills which is $140 a month on ONE income. If I could get a $10,000 scholarship that would be the happiest moment of my life. A big weight would be taken off our shoulders and I will feel like I can do anything. But right now I just feel hopeless and I have no where to turn. Sometimes I just want to give up. Times are hard. The weight of the world is on my shoulders.
