I was in the esthetician program at the South Philly location. Although this school will teach you the basics, it would be beneficial to extend the program or spend more time reviewing text book material to truly make sure the students understand the skin. It seems that the main goal at JM is to get as many clients in as possible to make money. The supplies which are supplied by the school are ALWAYS low or completely gone! For example, distilled water for steamers, disposable gloves and small cups, wax sticks, trash bags, quats (which is a hospital grade sanitizer necessary for disinfecting comedone extractors, tweezers, etc..) and all of the basic cleansers/lotions which should be on the cart in spa room. So basically, you use all of your own supplies which you purchase in your kit on all of the clients who come in. And you are required to bring in "paying" clients to practice on as part of a grade. The reality is, you pay tuition and buy your own supplies and the school makes pure profit off of it's students. I did have a lot of practice and felt confident getting a job, but the bottom line is: I feel used!
