Pros: Various tracks and specializations to choose. Qualified teachers. Small classes. Evening and Weekend classes. Textbook rental. Cons: No practical skill learned thus far. Not all teachers cater to the need of working students. Average reputation. No notable alumni. Financial Aid is nearly impossible for part time students.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The Forensic Mental Health Counseling program has many great qualities. First, it allows students to interact with amazing faculty - people who are not only excellent teachers, but also knowledgeable mental health professionals. Second, the extensive curriculum gives students the opportunity to learn about and be exposed to various aspects of the field, from empirical research to practical clinical application. Moreover, the program offers a thesis and a clinical (CASAC) track, making it appealing to different groups of students with varying interests.The program has very few weaknesses, which tend to be administrative, rather than educational, in nature. For instance, certain required classes are not offered at numerous times throughout the day, making them inconvenient to take. Despite such minor shortcomings, I am very happy and fully stand behind my decision to attend this program. It is simply one of the best!

One pro of my graduate program is that since John Jay is very diverse, various experiences and opinions are present in class discussions. One con of my graduate program is that it is very competitive, which may not be a con at all since challenges are what make us stronger.

Degree: Public Policy

My graduate school program is higher than the cost of other programs at my school. Despite this, there are resources available to help students succeed such as some networking events and flexible schedules.

There are no cons about the graduate program I am currently enrolled. The most important pro about the graduate program is that after I finish this program it will provide me with the knowledge I need to succeed in my career.

As a previous student of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, I have researched and found the pros outwieght the cons in the graduate program. The faculty would be accessible and supportive to students needs. The campus is a safety environment with a deversity of students to participate in various social activities. I feel the graduate program would be an excellent opportunity to exceed in any career.
