Once I took the Allen School tour I knew it was a perfect fit for me. All the staff was there to help me with every step of my enrollment, especially in filling out the paperwork. Also, my adviser explained my curriculum in detail. Every professor I've had so far has been excellent. The teachers know how to give and take with each other, when to be really strict and hard on their students, and when to lean back and teach them slowly. Also, they're a very charitable school because each class has their own cause, like my class which raises money for meningitis and the school is helping us out to raise that. It's a great school to go to and it exceeded my expectations.
I always knew about the Allen School because of the location. It's in Downtown Brooklyn. I enrolled there because of their small class sections, it's easier to get one-on-one attention. Enrollment was quick and I got to know exactly what the school is about, how much it costs, and what to expect. Everything they said was exactly what I experienced. The classes are very good and interesting. There is a lot to learn like stuff that I didn't know about the body from before. The professors are hands-on and really get you to understand. If it's difficult, they will bring it down to something students do every day so that they could grasp it and remember. If anyone wants to go back to school to learn in the health field, Allen School is really good. They teach students how to be professional and how to be ready for the world out there.
I heard about Allen School online. I didn't like the other schools that I was looking at so I chose them. Their enrollment processor was really good and I had a great experience with my enrollment. Learning was good too. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, it was easy. The professors were good, very hands-on with some things and they made sure that we understood.
I have a degree in Criminal Justice and wanted to try something new in the medical field so I went to the Allen school to see what it was about. I liked the program and stayed. I had Lina as my enroller. She showed me the school and explained to me all the details about it. Everything was a smooth process. I learned well from this school. I learned a lot of stuff that I never knew. There were some that were really good teachers and there were some that were really excellent. I'm on my internship and trying to apply what I have on my internship now. Hopefully, when it's done, I can get a job soon. I'd recommended Allen School to a friend.
I was looking for somebody that actually went to Allen School and know the whole backdrop of everything. Apparently, a friend of mine went there a few years ago, and she had a great experience. So I decided to go there and get some info. I was sold the first time I walked in. By the time I was ready to leave, I had all my questions answered, and I signed up right away. I like the fact that even if I'm not available during the day, I can always do the evening classes which was good for me. The teachers were great and I had a great time. I met a lot of friends and I took in as much as I could. They taught the basic even for computers. A lot of people that came in didn't really know about computers and I like that they had to teach that in the first month because that's going to be a great asset when we get out there and start working. So, they break everything down, and the teachers were always there for us.

I chose to go to Allen School of Health Sciences because of its location. The enrollment experience was quick. The daytime instructors were really nice but because of personal reasons, I had to switch over to the evening. I feel like the evening instructors, with an exemption of two, don’t really care for our education the way they should. If the students complain about the quality of education or professionalism amongst the instructors, somehow, the students are reprimanded because it’s pretty much like 'Don’t say anything. Keep your opinions to yourself.' Overall, the school is okay but, for that, my experience wasn’t the best at the Allen School.
It was raining on a Monday that I woke up and I really wanted to do something with my life. I Googled some sort of medical schools and Allen School popped up. Their representative called me right away about Allen School on Jamaica Avenue and she was very helpful. She told me to just never give up and continue fighting for what I want to become in life and just keep on striving. She right away set up an interview for me and then I went in there and she really dug me down as to why I want to become a medical assistant.
Studying there is very motivating and a growing experience because I always want to build on it. It's also very evolving because I always want to keep on trying to learn more and more on top of my education I already have. The professors are very helpful. In anything that I was stuck in and wanted to know, any questions that I personally needed to know for myself, they were able to answer it. They stuck with me and I was able to get through. Sometimes I would have questions even for me or my family members and they could answer it for me too. Then it was so helpful for me to go home and share it with my family and friends. I was really grateful and I’ll miss the experience that I had with them. It was a good step for me.
The only dislike that I have is that they didn’t have for the evening any coffee machine to help us students stay up because everything is close in the night time. I’m an evening student - 5:30 to 10:30. Maybe eventually they would have something for the later on students coming in. But other than that, the school is a great site. If you really want a stepping stone in life, Allen is definitely the place to start because I feel like I’m not stopping here at my medical assistant. My next step is to become an occupational therapist and work with patients. It’s very motivating and it’s a growing experience because I always want to build on it. It’s very evolving because I always wanna keep on trying to learn more and more on top of my education that I already have. I’m excited to be finishing and I’m going on to my internship soon. I learned a lot of new things becoming a medical assistant.
The program at Allen School was very interesting. The campus was also near and I had visited it. On that same day, I had everything processed quickly. The enrollment was very educational and I liked that everything was hands on. The learning experience was open and very interesting. The professors were good and they broke lessons down enough for older students to be on the same pace.
I was impressed with the program from Allen School of Health Sciences, so I decided that this is where I wanted to be. I wanted to do a Home Health Aide Program and they walked me through it. It made the enrollment easy and I did it with the financial aid. The instructors were there for me, and the learning experience has been a dream. They have the knowledge and do their part, but I have to do my part as well since I only get what I would put into it. However, there are students here who don't know what to expect and don't respect the instructors and that makes me upset.
My friend currently goes to Allen School and I like that it has a short program where I could be out in the field working within nine months. It was very easy to enroll because you talk face to face with the lady that helps you and she guided me through all the steps. The whole program was explained all the way from the beginning. They also explained how well the internship was. The teachers are very good. Each week, we got a syllabus and the teacher goes through on what we will be learning for the whole week. If they see that I'm not doing so well on a certain subject, they'll sit down and speak to me face to face. It's a really good school. It's a very close family experience wherein everybody is there to help everybody. It's easy to learn and easy to get along with the staff and the students. I would recommend Allen School to my friends.
I just got here in January, and I don’t like sitting down and a menial job is not for me. Since I'm in a new country, I have to do their formal education to fit in. I went to Allen School with an open mind, and I love every minute of it. I learned so much. I deal with figures back home, so I wanted to try something else, and Allen School is so new to me. Also, I needed to focus on something that will not be expensive. There are no words to describe how professional, warm, and welcoming Lena is. With open arms, she welcomed me like I was a part of the family. She’s that good. The professors are awesome. They are professional, and they have never done anything negative to me. My learning experience has been overwhelming. There were good days and bad days, but I will never trade this experience. I tell everybody that I know to come to Allen School. Everybody's experience is different, and they can get more than what I’ve gotten as well as the same.
I was looking for a school to go to and I heard a lot of good reviews about Allen School from people. Enrollment was easy. I love everything with the classes and it's smooth but I'd love it if they wouldn't go through the slides so quickly, so I can have a chance to copy it. The materials are understandable and I have great professors since I can get in contact with them anytime if I need help with something. Overall, it's been a helpful and a learning experience.
I've been enjoying being a student in the Allen School and it has been very beneficial for me. I had wanted to do something to help people and the school was a way to do that. I wanted to do something along the lines of the medical field or with children, but I'm more comfortable with doing something over the phone so it's more in line with my personality.
I've had an easy time enrolling. With the way I had to fill out the applications, and the advisers walking me through it step by step, it's streamlined. Also, there's a few things that need to be signed through DocuSign. They talk to the applicant and make sure that they're interested to go to the school and a good match for the program, but it's very easy.
The professors explained things very clearly to everyone. There was just one time when no one could sign in. It happened when I got to the school and I've heard from teachers that in years, they never ran into that issue. Some of my other classmates were upset but I thought if they never had that issue in years it was just a technical problem and that it could be worked around and dealt with.
I was looking online for medical insurance, billing and coding schools and Allen School came up. I liked the way that I could pick the times I wanted to be in school. Also, what they charged was a lot lower than other schools that I had researched. They called and once I decided I wanted to go, they helped me with trying to get financial aid. They detailed what everything would cost and how the payments would be. I didn't have enough even after I tried to get my loans, so they set me up on a payment scale that had no interest on it.
All the instructors are very knowledgeable. If I have any problems all I got to do is email them and they'll call me right away. They are so easy to talk to. The longest I've ever waited for someone to get back to me was a day. They even call every so often to see how I'm doing. It's been phenomenal and I love it. When I'm finished with my degree, Allen School even had job placement. They will help me with making my resume right and they even try to help me find jobs.
I was looking for schools online and something regarding nursing or in the health care range. I got a call from Allen and the person that contacted me was Lori Ann. I stuck with her the whole time and I pretty much kicked everybody else out the door. She talked me through everything and helped me get everything I needed. She was open and was always there if I had a question. She knew about everything she needed to know. Every question I had, she answered. And if she didn't know it, she'll find the answer and then get back to me. She also made the enrollment fairly easy. I felt like I didn't have to do anything.
The professors at Allen School were the same way. They're really easy people to get along with. They actually take the time to answer your questions and they're not judgmental. If you get the wrong answer, they're not gonna be snobby about it. The online options really help with the time that I have. It's a better schedule for me and the teachers are really interactive. Everything that Lori Ann told me was true. I love the whole learning process. I've actually gotten my whole process system down. I know exactly where to find what I'm looking for. I know how to get in contact with everybody with no problem. I've also learned some stuff that I have had no idea about. I love it. I sometimes actually look forward to going to school and I've already recommended it to a few people.
I read some of the reviews about Allen School and looked for the negative ones. Anybody can build up things, but I want to know what the complaints were but the people who were complaining were also the type of people that didn't put that much into it. In comparison with other schools that the complaints were really broad and varied, a lot of complaints about Allen were stating that "Man, I went to this class for so long and I wasn't ready for the test, that's not fair". But in other schools, it was things like “The softwares were difficult to understand, they use a style of notation that's applicable only to the school, like nobody else in the world uses it, so why are we doing this?” It was a lot of things about the academics.
The enrollment and classes were phenomenal. I had a really extensive interview with a few people and didn't just throw me through the program. They really wanted to know me personally and if I was going to be a good fit for them. And I had the feeling that if they felt like it wasn't going to work out, they would have told me so, or at least cautioned me against going in to the program. My only concern about the entire learning experience overall is my peers relating everything to their family or children, which I don't wanna hear. I even had substitute professors that come in and said, “I heard this was a really talkative group.” And I said, “Yeah, you have no idea.” If they were talkative about something that was actually related to the learning experience, then I wouldn't have any issue with it.
I'm extremely happy about being there. I love the online learning environment and the school itself have been more than accommodating with me. They have an several schedules and because of problems in life, work and things of that nature, I've actually been on all of them since I started. It has been an extremely well experience with them and so I brought another student to them.
My brother made an appointment on my behalf and everyone at Allen School that I got to talk to was really passionate, and the atmosphere was really great. Alicia and Amy helped me a lot during enrollment. They definitely made the process really easy for me. They explained everything to me and gave me a clear idea of what the process was. So far, my experience has been really great. The teachers are really helpful. If you're struggling there, they would love to help you out. And the lessons that they teach, they make it so you can understand it in a way that you can learn. The students and the people that works there are really friendly, so you enjoy going to school.
I went online looking for a school to do billing and coding and the time, the schooling fees, and the helpfulness of Allen School with getting information that I needed to get started was pretty good. But the person that I've been talking to since I decided to go there is really the one that made me make up my mind to say that this is the place where I want to do it. I feel like I could be successful there with all the help that they offer.
The enrollment process was quick and easy. They helped me and worked around my schedule to get it all done. They laid them into steps and made it a real smooth process. So now I'm taking two classes and I love both of my teachers. They stay on after the whole class is over if ever we have any questions. They're always stopping in between, going back to make sure that everybody is understanding it all. Neither one of them leaves anybody behind and they take a lot of time to freshen up on something that we may have missed.
I've had a little bit of a medical background and I've done medical schooling before, but this is my first experience doing it online. The school work itself does get deeper, but right now it's good and I'm catching on fairly quickly. The only problem that I had was when my work schedule changed at the beginning of school. But I'm making them work by getting up at 5:30 in the morning to get to class from 8:30 to 1:30. It's a bit of a struggle for a while, but it'll be worth it at the end. As far as the school itself, it has been wonderful and I've had a great experience.
I’m already in the medical field, as I was in high school. I wanted to finish it up, so I could finish my career. I enrolled with Allen School and the enrollment process was good. It was efficient and they were right to the point which is something that I like. They didn't give me the runaround. It was straight to getting everything done in a timely manner.
I was looking for a medical assisting program and came across Allen School online and they asked me to go visit the facility. At that time, I wasn’t living very close but they kept in contact with me and didn't push me and that was how I ended up going there. My learning experience has been awesome. The professors were all very good. I’m in my internship right now and more prepared than I thought. I enjoyed going to the school and they made it possible for all their students to succeed. They’re very persistent in helping their students out no matter what.
I’m doing an internship right now through Allen School of Health Sciences. Alicia, from my high school, motivated all of us to go in and would explain how the school was. I like my learning experience. The professors are all good and they know what they’re talking about.
Everything’s great with Allen School so far. When I signed up, someone called me right away and invited me to talk to a person who worked there. Everything was set up and was really quick. The people were very friendly and helpful.
I went to Allen School and that was where I did my program as a Nursing Assistant. I was well-taught when I was in class. I passed all my exams because my teachers were great. I really enjoyed the phone party that we’ve had the last day of school. All the people exchanged their numbers. I always thought before that I’ll go back to Allen School because when I finished, I was home for months, then I got my first job from them.
I worked for seven years and I wasn’t feeling so good. So now, I just came back to do my program again because I lost my license; it expired on me. I called them and then I asked if Jackie was still working there. She did my resume when I needed it—and anytime I needed something, I just go to them. They'd give me some printout. And even this summer, the fee was like $1500. Then they gave me a break since I'm coming back so I'm only gonna be paying less than $1,000 which is good.
The lady there helped me during the enrollment as well as the lady that was at the front desk. She was working when I came in and I was offered a seat because they were taking care of somebody else. And while I was there, I was able to ask the questions that I had in mind, because I have not been there for a long time. Then I did my testing. We really talked at length from first to the final stage – when school is going to start, if I could not be able to start, what will I do, the number to call, and it was okay. There are other schools all over the place and I came back because they did everything right. I highly recommend Allen School.
I was interested in starting back to school. I got online and put down some of my interests and somebody contacted me. He gave me a list of about five schools that would be calling me and I talked to four of them. The Allen School seemed to fit the bill in terms of what I was looking for. There's probably somebody else in this area that could do the same thing but their enthusiasm and professionalism made me go ahead and choose them.
The enrollment process wasn't difficult and we've been through the financial end of it. Once that was approved I talked to student services and I've been online several times doing tests or preliminary classes on how to work your way through the online process, like how to get in the classes. And they had to have a tech service person call and make sure my computer was going to be okay with the process. I still have a couple of things I needed to do before I actually start. But so far I appreciate everybody's helpfulness and willingness to make it as easy for me as they can.
Allen School came for a little college day on campus. I felt that they were more personal - that they cared about my education more than my money unlike the other schools. Enrolling with Allen was very simple. I thought it was tedious just as any other finance process, but it went without a fuss because all the people were very friendly. It's been a great experience overall.
Allen School is a small school which I like. I had first heard about them through my sister who's going to school with me, and enrolling there was pretty easy. They walked me through the whole process of applying for school. They also helped me out in dealing with it financially. It's been an amazing experience with them and I have learned a lot more than I have. The instructors know what they’re doing. I understand what they’re talking about and the courses are pretty good and easy.
I love Allen School. A friend of mine suggested it and the enrollment process was very easy. They're also close to where I live. It's a great experience especially for a person who hasn't been in school for a while. The teachers are excellent and they help me adapt very well. Studying there is tiring but it's paying off.
I have only been there for a short amount of time but I've learned a lot. The professors are awesome. I love each and every one of them and their teaching styles. They also take their time and make sure we learn. I'm learning everything I could so I can take it with me. I'm having a wonderful experience and I look forward to going to school. I have a 4.0 GPA and I'm honors platinum. I'm looking forward to graduation too.
I found Allen School of Health Sciences online and their credentials were good so I decided to enroll with them. They were patient with me and very helpful with any information that I needed for the enrollment. The learning experience has been enjoyable for me and the professors are A-plus. Overall, my experience with them was more than what I expected.
I was looking at going back to school. I put my name on a website and Alicia from Allen School called me the next day and I had an appointment to see her. I saw that everybody at Allen School was super friendly and wanted to help. At other schools I wasn't a priority but I am at Allen School. The enrollment process took a day and a half to do but it was really easy. The professors were also very knowledgeable - I love them all.
