Overall Rating

80% of Cincinnati States students drop out and don't graduate. 0% have graduated from Sonography General Imaging in the past 10 years. White males account for less than 10% of graduates from their medical programs (this does not reflect enrollment or local populations). On time graduation is less than 15%. These are all public statistics that you can verify independently. I attended Cincinnati State for two years starting in 2007. At first I enjoyed the school and the teachers were great. The first odd thing that happened was when I first enrolled I did not sign up for student loans but they gave them to me anyway. I was still thinking about whether or not I should get it, so I just decided to take it and not say anything. I didn't know what major to go into and they advertised that the medical field was great and sonography. Another strange red flag- they had brochures advertising what looked to be unrealistic pay for some of the majors. They claim that Surgical Tech people start out at about $20 an hour and that Sonographers make about $80,000 a year. I called up hospitols and they said Surgical Teches start at $12-$13 an hour and Sonographers don't make that much. The other majors may not have this problem, but there are four programs in the medical department: Sonography General Imaging, Sonography Cardio vascualr, Nursing and Surgical Tech. Each head of the program is a female. The Sonography General Imaging head is an extreme sexist and racist hating white men. The other program heads are less extreme but go along with this and demonstrate a lot of bias. They also play "favorites" generally picking who they want in their classes and who they don't and denying people an education. I really don't care if they exclude me from their class. The problem here is that Cincinnati State commits fraud when they encourage me to take a major and when I'm 95% finished won't let me take the final classes I need. This maxes out my financial aid and means I have to drop out of college. Then the school just uses the excuse "well our students are all lower class ghetto people anyway. They are just too dumb for an education and here to get the financial aid check" Reality check- there are plenty of community colleges across the nation and they don't have 80% drop out rates. If the drop out rate is that high students and staff should start pointing fingers at the college itself. The first real problem was when I signed up for an EKG class that I thought would be interesting. It wasn't part of my major and I guess was normally part of the nursing program. When I showed up the first day of class the teacher got real hostile towards me and said I wasn't one of "her" students. She said the next meeting would be in the room where they did their nursing thing last week. I asked her where that was and she said second floor of the medical building. Well for one, the student hand book says a teacher can't move class rooms without a valid reason, but ok. It was not on the second floor. After wondering around for a long time I found it on the third. She moved the class again after that and once again would not tell me where it was. I got an F in the class because I could never find it. All of "her" students happened to be female. Then when I had finished all my classes I went to sign up online for my clinicals. I had met all the pre-reqs. It would not let me sign up online. When I went to the office to ask about this they said I just needed to meet with the program head first and she would let me sign up for them. I met with her and she wouldn't. There was a long drawn out battle where she made every excuse asking me to drop out of college, to quit, to change majors, I'm not smart enough, I'm not good enough etc. but people with lower gpas were whisked right through the program. When I pressed her many times she finally said she doesn't like men and does not think they are suited for the medical field. That's when I realized 100% of her class every year is female. Well she promised me if I switch to Cardio vascular sonography that I could take my final classes. The head of that program was with her and agreed. I did and when I was ready to attend class, they wouldn't let me in the class. When I tried resolving this they wanted secret meetings behind closed doors where they made promises that they never kept. I was told if I switch to Surgical tech 100% for sure I could take it. I talked to the surgical tech lady and she wrote my name down as number 6 on a list out of 13 and said 100% for sure I could start in the fall. I waited several months for fall to come around. I was signed up on the computer. Everything seemed good. When I showed up for the first day of class I was told I couldn't do the program. I said "My name is on the list right?" She said "What list? We don't have a list, that is just a rumor started by students". They don't care about their students and commit fraud against them and discriminate. I have complained to the school multiple times about this over the years and it continues today and its 2015. I asked them to do something about this and just quit doing it and threatened lawsuits, protests, contact the FBI etc. They don't seem scared at all. Seems like they have gotten away with this a lot and pretty confident about it. The Department of Justice and FBI also seems to ignore my complaints about civil rights violations.

Overall Rating

OVER ALL THE SCHOOL IS A VERY GOOD SCHOOL. I LIKE THE MOST HOW THE STUDENTS REALLY LOVED COMIN AND WAS ABLE TO GET ALONG WITH OTHER CLASS MATES AND I LOVE THE FACT THAT WE HAD SOMEWHERE TO GO TO STUDY IF WE DIDNT WANT TO GO HOME WE WAS STILL ABLE TO STAY AT SCHOOL AND WORK THERE. ALL I CAN GIVE AS A TIP IS: " WE ONLY LIVE ONCE... WORK HARD... STUDY HARD... BECAUSE EDUCATION IS YOUR LIFE AND WITHOUT EDUCATION WE HAVE NO LIFE"
