Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

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.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

It is a doctoral program so I expect it to be challenging, however I would have hoped to have more assistance with financial situations such as help in looking for scholarships, which I have received none of thus so far.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I have been accepted into the program, and have yet to begin classes. Thus far the only con is the cost, which is why I have been applying for scholarships to help fund my education.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: The program is professional and provides a great deal of diversity in staff and students. There are plenty of activities and groups to participate in. The quality of education is excellent. Cons: The cons are probably the same for any Psy.D. program at the moment. There are more students then there are practicum and internship sites available. The training department at Adler does work hard to help students get placements.

While the Adler School has little in the way of scholarships, the program is excellent and the school champions its mission of educating socially responsible practitioners. I'm glad I decided to attend the Adler School.
