Degree: Psychology

As an International Student, there aren't a ton of funding opportunities available. Otherwise, my first impression of the school (I only started this semester) has been positive. Great environment and friendly/helpful profs/peers.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is very focused on diversity and training culturally competent mental health professionals. The curriculum often includes a diversity element within every class that I believe is beneficial for the future of all mental health professionals in the United States and the world as a whole. Our location is in the center of downtown Chicago and our campus is beautiful and clean, but also has a very intimate environment. The one drawback is that there are several milestones each student must complete within the program and they typically are due in the middle of the semester. This deadline makes the already heavy and stressful workload even more intense due to the tendency of students to put their classes and practicum responsibilities on the back burner for several weeks as they work to complete a milestone assignment by the deadline.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: the quality and dynamics of the program provides ongoing intellectual satisfaction and stimulation for me. The class sizes and professors are also very efficient. The location on In downtown Chicago is definitely awesome and provides a perfect backdrop. Cons: tuition is very expensive, which can be expected however, the financial aid packages are very insufficient by only offering student loans. There aren't any grants, advertised research opportunities or fellowship offers available through the institution for masters students. Parking is very difficult and/or extremely expensive, because classes can be held very late it would be safer for some individuals to opt to drive instead of taking public transportation.

The Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL is an excellent choice if you are looking to pursue a graduate degree in psychology. Adler provides a supportive learning environment conducive to the needs of the students and their success. Professors and faculty are easily accessible, and the campus is equipped with the resources and technology students need in order to ensure a well rounded academic experience. Adler goes above and beyond the standard of other schools in order to enhance every student's learning experience both on campus, and out in the field. The only con I see is that moving to Chicago can be expensive depending on where you live. Adler makes sure to provide information on the most affordable neighborhoods in the area and helps facilitate roommate matches.

It is very accessible and the professors are very easy to communicate with. The tuition is pretty high, but seems to be worth it to me.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

There are not really any cons I can think of from my graduate program. So far they have been extremely well-mannered and seem eager to help. The faculty and staff are extremely knowledgeable and always willing to lend a helping hand or just talk for a short while. The networking opportunities are great as long as you are determined and willing to put in some time and effort.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Adler is a great school in a great location. The classes are informative and engaging, as are the faculty members who teach them. Administratively, the school is still experiencing some growing pains and may seem a little disorganized at times. This does not detract at all from the quality of my education.
