I absolutely love vet tech institute, here in Indiana. The teachers are always going above and beyond what is expected when coming to teaching. I appreciate all my counselor as well. Any i have anything wrong i go right to them, they are all so helpful. I wouldn't want this school to change anything about their college. They care about your academic year and the counselors help you set goals for yourself!

Being going to school here for almost 8 months, and I love it! Since it’s such a short program it’s fast paced and keeps you engaged, which I like a lot! It’s a challenging program but the sense of achievement is amazing! If you are thinking of attending VTI keep in mind that you will be in class from 8:30-3:20 most terms and will have lots of studying to do! The staff definitely has some professors that pick favorites as if we’re still in high school, but they are all knowledgeable and helpful!
I had to pay a $200 deposit to hold my place, housing included. They told my 2 weeks before we started that I needed to also bring $400 for housing when I first got there. The teachers don’t know how to teach different types of learning styles in a short period of time. The school mainly cares about their reputation as a whole, not your success as a student. I failed 1 class due to being in and out of the hospital. They would NOT let me retake the class and basically kicked me out. They did this to many others students as well. They won’t give you a second chance if you don’t succeed at first and will tell you that you’re a failure. So that’s reassuring. Now I have tons of debt for 18 months when I only was there for 1 term. Pretty sure it’s a scam and they just want a good reputation and your money.
