Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I have FA LOWER RATING BECAUSE THEY DO NOT OFFER FELLOWSHIPS AND HAVE FEW OPPORTUNITIES TO SUPPLEMENT EDUCATION WITH BEING A TA. Most is through loans. Otherwise, it is like any other school. Some professors are awesome and others are terrible. It's the same everywhere.

It is a challenging and comprehensive program. I like the blended on-campus and online course. I wish the campus was in a safer area with better parking.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is fresh, innovative, and moving up in graduate schools for psychology ranking. I look forward to my studies and work associated with the program.

The Pros of the graduate program is that it is a community based education; that means you get to go out and have hands on experience with other professional psychologists. Secondly, it is a small classroom of students, so professors will have more time with their students one on one. The cons of the graduate program is that I feel so rushed sometime with so many assignments that have to be done.

This program is academically everything I want in a graduate program. However, the website needs to be better organized to answer questions.

Pros-offer various locations for the courses and has many different areas for helping their students to succeed Cons-the only thing is that there is only one time to take all the courses at each campus and you can't attend different locations

Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program is the diversity of the faculty and students, attention on providing assessment classes and weekend classes. The cons of my program is that it is a new school and in the beginning it was very disorganized and classes are very expensive.

Workload is inconsistent. Some professors do not expect enough from students while other overload students with presentations, quizzes, midterm and final, along with 3 papers. Pros: Do not have to take the GRE (Clinical PsyD), easy schedule (EO weekend or 2x week night classes), professors have a lot of experience, fellow students, nice surrounding area Cons: cost, not APA accr.edited, difficulty with finding placements and organizing practicum placements, and inconsistency with teachers expectations. Disappointed with some professors teaching style at a doctoral level...should be discussion based and students should be expected to read and come ready to discuss but many professors teach with power point.
