Platt College - Riverside Reviews
I've always been interested in the Ultrasound program, I picked Platt because it was much more of a realistic choice for me. It's a 2 year program (including your internship) each class is 5 weeks long, Monday- Thursday, and each 5 week Module you take 2 to 3 class. Which ends up being 5-10 meetings per class a mod. So it NO JOKE when they say it FACED PACED. This program is very hands on & the instructors want to answer every question you might have. But the school provides made up syllabus, tests & power points for lectures for the teachers so they really sound like theyre reading a script at times, unless you ask questions on the subjects. DMS program is mainly about whether you're good at scanning or not. In the end that's mainly what matters in your career field. So this school has students scanning pretty early on which is very exciting & makes learning about different pathologins easier to understand. Attend school & you'll pass with flying colors! As long as you attend school & show you want to be there. The school & instructors will help you make it through it all. You can say they hand feed/ spoil us at times.
Platt College Riverside has a great energy about it. The staff & teachers are really nice which can go a long way... for them (especially when they need students in order to get paid). I feel like the "counselors" need to be more informed about each program, besides how much the courses cost. For example, since Platt Riverside isn't accredited in the DMS program, I asked how that affects me when I join and the best response I got was "Oh all that really doesn't matter unless you don't go through the Bachelors program they offer" (because i had already said I was interested in the Bachlors program) in reality there's more to it. All trade schools run the same and isn't for everyone. School like these are for people who really want to extend their education but don't have the time or don't want the hassle of public school waiting lists and it's also for people who aren't really into school, but know they need a college degree to feel moderately comfortable in their lives. With that, some short cuts are taken in order to get us there and that's where people start to contaplate and question whether or not it's the right fit for them.
The teachers work very hard at making sure we understand the material that we are learning. The career services department is very open to helping us find jobs within our different fields of study and to prepare us for future job searches and interviews.
