Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007

I attended when the ABA program was new. The school is in a great location and facility is nice. The program had some kinks to iron out but overall, I learned a tremendous amount and felt prepared to work in the field

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010

While I really enjoyed the diversity aspect of the school, I did not feel that they prepared students well enough to transition into the working world. I wish that there would have been more support, throughout the entire process of finishing out practicum and applying to take the exam. Lastly, it was very costly. I believe I could have found a more affordable but equally as competitive program.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The greatest pro of this graduate program is that it is a professional school, so future therapists are taught from the very beginning how to become a competent therapist. Professors also foster learning in a variety of ways to cater to different learning styles. The con of this graduate program is that some classes should be more thorough, more often than not 1 unit classes are only one hour and it's not enough time to have an in depth lecture about any given topic.

Degree: Psychology

The Clinical Psy.D. faculty are amazing but the fact that the school is run by a bunch of business professionals does horrible things for the school as a whole.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2020

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is where I found my educational home. I was very flustered this summer trying to pick a graduate program. I was torn between three schools. But, gradually, like the story of Goldi Locks. One school was 'too big'. One school was 'too small'. One school, The Chicago School, was just right! The campus is well kept. The faculty are kind and interested. The classes are just difficult enough. I love this school!

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

the Pros of my university are the vast resources available for students during their practicum semesters. There are writing seminars and programs to enhance writing skills of the students and they work with you to find a balance between work life and school. The areas of improvement for my university is the lack of financial aid offered and the obscene tuition rate for the university. It makes it difficult for students to balance jobs, family and school all in one with little to no scholarship.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I really enjoy the opportunities given to apply what we are learning in the classroom to real life situations and using actual organizations to analyze and develop strategies and interventions. One of the downfalls for me is the online learning component. I prefer classroom learning.

I enjoyed my program overall. They have good connections to schools in the community for internship placements and jobs after you graduate.
