Great Lakes Institute of Technology Reviews
I am enrolled, but I have not began my program yet. However, I have had nothing but a fantastic experience so far. The admissions representative, Heather, is such a thoughtful, caring, and sweet human being. She'll go above and beyond to help you throughout the application process. It isn't necessary to complete any ACT/SAT testing to enroll, it is a career-based program without those unnecessary classes/courses, and the test you take to get accepted is to help the school evaluate if you will be successful within that specific program. There of course is the financial aid part of things, which I thought would be way more difficult and complicated, but they make it pretty simple and easy to understand. I have been treated in a very wonderful manner and I think this would be a wonderful school to attend if you don't want to commit to a four-year program.
My experience with Great Lakes was and still is awesome.. I'm really not the school type of person but Great Lakes showed be different, they welcomed me with open arms and help me tremendously . The vibes are so comfortable u will not feel out of place... I would recommend Great Lakes to anyone . Greak Lakes shaped me into a responsible person. All the staff is helpful and nice . I wouldn't change anything because they are awesome.
I tried to go to a regular 4 year university but i soon realized that it wasn’t for me. The hands on experience and small class sizes are super beneficial for continuing my education. I am so excited to start my career as a Surgical Technologist! Great Lakes is preparing me for the future of the rest of my life.
