I truly read the yelp reviews to confirm that this is the school I wanted to go to.
They are truly the best which includes fees and also the quality of education they provide is excellent. No Fluff! Just what you need to master the skills and pass the exam. It was such a blessing to find this school. Ms.Kay is a sweetheart. She taught our batch, she is the best.
First day I got in, I was a lil nervous but Ms. Kay came in after the orientation and started teaching us and the rest was history....
We all passed the exam thanks to Ms.Kays awesome notes and guidance.
Again don't look any further if you are looking to become a Phlebotomist. The best deal, easy to understand and also you finish off quick.

I had many misconceptions about the school- and have thus far been proven wrong on every negative perception that I'd been socialized into believing. The professors I've worked with have been largely kind, and some of the very best (I'm looking at you, Mr.Lee, with the *awesome* Biology lectures). There are many resources on campus, from the Transfer center that helps you every step of the way with guidance and feedback on your college applications, to the Writing Center, where your work is critiqued by the helpful tutors they have on board. My appreciation of the staff aside, our school has several new buildings, and the campus has definitely grown more beautiful in the past two years that I've been attending. I'm transferring out this semester, but ELAC will always be a very special place to me.
My experience at East Los Angeles Community College has been a very good one. The professor's are there to help and guide you, as well as the tutoring services provided on campus. There are also many informal events for students to help guide them through college. The upgrades are a major plus to the campus!
