I feel inclined to put in my 2 cents...
I had recently looked into BMC in Cinti regarding their Medical Assisting program. Rather pricey, I am finding out, and, while I'd really like to attend college there, it's just not going to be a 'go'.
I was advised by Ivy Tech in SE Indiana that "Brown Mackie isn't accredited" in that one's credits won't transfer anywhere. I've been seeing confirmation of this online.
Anyway, one feature that is appealing about Brown Mackie is that a person doesn't have to wait to get started.
All schools will have their pros and cons. I would say that the best thing that any student can do is get all of the facts about schools that they're interested in and then make an informed decision based on the compilation of all of those facts. Yes, it's time consuming and exhausting, but I personally am not commiting myself to any college until I check out all that are of interest to me and then and only then will I be able to make a decision.
Brown Mackie used to be Southern Ohio College (Laidlaw Ave. off of Paddock Rd/I-75). The new campus is on Glendale-Milford Road. I go through Woodlawn to get there. Most people would take I-75. The admissions rep that I've spoken to on numerous occasions has been there for nearly 30 years. Yes, the college is expensive. They are twice as much regarding credit hours as Ivy Tech. I do not know what the credit hour cost is at other Cincinnati schools.
Good luck to everyone trying to choose the best school that fits their needs!
P.S. I've now turned my interest away from medical assisting (for now) and am focusing on becoming an LPN, although I would definitely need to get the pre-requisites out of the way...
