Carrington was the best decision I could of made in a school. After recently getting my GED and graduating in November 2011 I knew I wanted more and didn’t want to stop there, I always had a dream to go into the Medical Field but always held myself back due to fear of failing. That fear was gone now and I was ready so I chose Carrington. It’s fast paced program was a very good fit for me! I enrolled in December 2011. Started my first day in January, at first I was nervous that I maybe I wouldn’t be able to handle it, but as my first grades started coming in I saw that I was an “A” student in Lab and Lecture, by the time by first Mod was over I saw that my GPA was 4.0, I was amazed and felt that I was in the right place. Through out the rest of the program I was able to hold a steady 4.0 GPA , made the Dean’s List 5 times, and the President’s List. I started my externship in August and was ready to put to use what I had learned and practiced in the classroom so many times. Carrington prepared me for almost everything I could encounter out there in the real world, the teachers; Ms. Baltodano, Ms. Sterling , and Ms. Jenkins, and Ms. Arnold were the best and helped me to become the best I could be! I am happy to say that I recently got hired at my Externsite as a Medical Assistant! I can’t believe how far I have come in less than one year! Thank You Carrington College – San Leandro Campus!!
