John F Kennedy University is an amazing school. They have an extremely helpful and supportive staff. They have an amazing graduate program and the opportunity to make close connections with the staff are amazing. I really love everything I know about the school thus far. The only difficulty is finding affordable housing in the area especially with the large financial commitment the school itself is.

I feel so lucky to be able to go to graduate school and advance as a professional and as a person. I would say that all aspects of my graduate program are wonderful the only part that is hard for me is how much it costs.

This graduate school has the wonderful benefit of being catered to older students. However, if I wasn't an older (30+) student, I don't think it would be a good fit for me. As it is, though, it's perfect.

The instructors at the San Jose campus are great, but this campus is fairly disconnected from the larger university. The quality of the program is very good and I have really appreciated being in the Holistic program.

The MFT program for Counseling Psychology is for students who are interested in learning and creating better futures for people and themselves within the personal community of JFK University. The Staff and Professors are always available and extremely helpful in any guidance of your educational journey. If you are seeking for an intimate, personal school community that is there in any means to help you, JFK University is the place for you. Coming from San Jose State University for my undergraduate Bachelor's Degree with a graduating class of over 3,000 students, JFK University is very small, personal, and hand-on with every student to make the experience that much better.

Ever since I started to attend this school I have learned a lot about myself that I would have never learned otherwise. It has challenged me in every way possible; physically, emotionally, and intellectually. I have not found anything that I do not like about this school. They are everything that I have always wanted. The only thing that I have an issue with is the cost of living but that's because tuition is high and the area in which the school is in just has a high cost of living. I do not necessarily blame the school for this because the area that the school is in allows some great career opportunities. As for the cost of tuition, I see all of my money going to great things and incredible professors. I only wish though that loans were enough to cover everything but they never are. This scholarship would help me a bit to afford what I have not been able to which would be greatly appreciated.
