What a crazy ride it’s been! March 2, 2013 I was sitting in my house job searching on craigslist when a Carrington College commercial came on. I had thought about going back to school but hadn’t really done anything about it, so I quickly grabbed my phone and called for more information on the medical assisting program (before I could talk myself out of it). I requested an information packet, and was offered a chance to come take a tour the following day. Again, I accepted before I could talk myself out of it. Not only did I take a tour the following day but I took and passed the entrance exam, filled out my application and met with a financial advisor. Now, less than a year later, I am lucky enough to have been hired right away and am working full time looking forward to the future. Carrington gave me the opportunity to prove to myself that I can succeed, and succeed I did!
