Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

Attending online has provided me the opportunity to share in life experiences with professionals in the field. Online cohorts are small which assists in getting to know one another. The courses are challenging but applicable.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The Masters of Counseling Psychology program is set up to train students to hit the ground running in the job market. They emphasize diversity, but are only slightly successful at executing the concept. For being a campus that considers themselves culturally aware, they certainly do not train the students well in how to work with a diverse population. I have had nothing but positive experiences with the faculty, include core, adjunct, and alumni professors. They are truly experienced and passionate about the field. The administration, on the other hand, is poorly organized. The cost of tuition is also very expensive, as it is a private school whom does not receive research funding. Overall, though, I have had a positive experience.

Cons: It is annoying when the faculty and the administrative staff are not on the same page when updating the required reading material for the semester. Pros: The faculty for the most part are dedicated to making sure their students understand the material and do well in the program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

After debating for a number of years to go back to school to get my doctorate degree, I was immediately impressed and confident to go back and attend The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. They are eager to support and help transition adults back into being a student as well as have class schedules that are suitable for the working professionals. What I like the most is that the professors treat students are colleagues with respect and collaboration!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The school has great professors who have all worked in the field and bring real life experience to the classroom. The school has a great Applied Professional Practice that assists students in finding 100% placement for practicum and internships. The student body is competitive and active in extracurricular activities. The school has relatively small facilities with an incredibly small and limited library. The school does have 3 small computer labs although at any given moment there are several computers out of function. Printing can be difficult in these labs with frequent ink and paper shortages.

It gives me a wide range of perspectives to work with. The Cohort is small and we know everyone. Working and going to school is difficult but i work in the field and i see it as a benefit on both sides. I have no regrets and would not change it for the world.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The Chicago School in Washington, DC campus is relatively new to the DC area. It is located near the metro bus and rail. The Counseling Psychology program provides training for students who are interesting in counseling. There are three concertations: child and adolescent, generalist, and trauma. The faculty members are very helpful and supportive. The workload is not too bad. It compose of read and writing papers. As for safety- when you enter the building you would have to use your ID to get in and there is a desk receptionist at the front desk.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is perfect for individuals who want to be a part of an accelerated program that is taught only by individuals who are currently practicing psychology or counseling in some facet. The core faculty is amazing, yet the administrative staff is subpar. If you're willing to take advantage of opportunities, this school has many. It has a community partnerships department in addition to numerous volunteer and internship fairs. The biggest downfall is their lack of a screening process with high standards. It's not a competitive program, and it's expensive because it's not a research university.

The school focuses on assessment and evaluation and not specifically on counseling or therapy.
