I have a family member who went to MacCormac and she talked a lot about how she enjoyed the school and the program, so I came to check it out. I enjoy MC because it is a small environment and the instructors are really informative in how they bring real-world experiences into the classroom.
I chose to study Paralegal Studies at MacCormac because the program is approved by the American Bar Association, it has been around a long time, and I heard a lot of good things about it. A former student recommended the school to me.

MacCormac provided a solid education and continuing support many years after graduation to give me the confidence to take the chance to try new ways of applying court reporting skills.
I have worked for 35 years in the paralegal field. Five years ago, I finally got my degree professionally framed. Thank you for giving me this career that helped me raise two kids, buy a home and be active in a field I love.
MacCormac is not hard to find - you can take the bus or two trains – if doesn’t make a difference because we are right here in the middle of the Loop. It is small so you know everybody at the College.
MacCormac is a very positive environment; all the teachers and staff want the students to succeed. It is always helpful when your teachers are available anytime you need them.
MacCormac College not only prepared me for my career in court reporting but also gave me a great background in business to ensure my success. The teachers and administration at MacCormac College are very knowledgeable and helpful. They always gave encouragement and support when I needed it.
What I enjoyed the most was that the professors actually had experience in their field and I found that to be extremely valuable. They were able to teach from the textbooks and bring in their own experience that would allow me to better understand the material.
I came to MacCormac College because it’s the first court reporting college in the nation. The reputation is huge. It is known as the Harvard of court reporting colleges so it was a no-brainer for me to come here.
The court reporting professors are very, very knowledgeable not only about the actual skill on the machine but the behind-the- scenes aspects of the job as well. They are giving us a very well-rounded education for what we are going to need once we are done with school.
When I came to MacCormac I loved it immediately. The staff members are amazing, and I knew that I would get the help I needed. The teachers care and the class sizes are small, so no one gets left behind.
MacCormac is in a good location downtown. I’m originally from down south and have always wanted to live in Chicago. I like that MacCormac is small, so the teachers are really attentive.
