The biggest con is their lack of scholarship money. The pro is that it is a really good school and the name will follow me into my career in a good way.

TCSPP is a decent school to attend. The on ground programs are better than the blended programs. I learned a lot and gained a ton of lifetime friends.

I chose The Chicago School because it prides itself in diversity and incorporating the community. Though I am have a great and challenging experience, I feel that there is always room for improvement, particularly within the sense of community within the student body. The faculty is extremely supportive and encouraging and the president of the university is extremely open and approachable. The campus is easily accessible via the CTA brown line and the campus seems relatively safe.

Pros: Clean and new facility Passionate faculty Diverse student body Convenient location near metro Wide range of accredited psychology programs Cons: Fairly new location, so there are kinks to be ironed out

Blended program, which means a lot of useless busy work and no time to read what you would love to read and learn. Teachers: it is getting better now, but the general tendency is to be very strict but rarely giving you feedback on your work, and rarely respecting deadlines; whereas if students are late 2 minutes, they get a ZERO, not a lower grade. Campus is really cool, technology.. there is a lot going on, but there are only a few computers with old OS for so many students. classrooms are cool. It is located at downtown L.A., with its pros and cons. Very well connected for practica though.

I think that the Chicago School of Professional Psychology offers a unique opportunity to be involved in a community focused on psychology. The cost of classes are a bit high, but the professors are very knowledgeable of the subject matter and truly wish to develop students into successful psychologists.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

My experience in the CES PhD program at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology has been challenging yet very rewarding. The program has challenged me to think critically about modern day counseling issues, to find unique ways to apply theory to my current work in the field, be more receptive to change, and to improve my time management skills. Though I am still in my first year I feel that my application of counseling techniques, understanding of the counseling profession and critical thinking skills have grown tremendously which is extremely rewarding.

Quick but quality program. Little notice of major changes that could impact your abilities to complete the program.

I am entering my first semester of graduate classes. The amount of technology available for blended classes is outstanding. The courses offered a relevant to the present requirements of the profession. The staff that I have interacted with throughout my application process were friendly and attentive. The tuition and fees are significantly higher than similar programs offered in the area.
