Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program is great at this university. The small classes makes the quality of education extremely beneficial. The relationships between students and professors are very personable and entails great communications. The small classes also makes it easy for students to get to know one another better. It forces students to reach out to new people and gain the best of their education through dialogue. The cons of this school is the financial accessibility for low income students. It is extremely pricey and financial aid does not provide any grants. There should be more financial aid given to students in need.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Loyola Marymount is a great school academically. I feel that the schools provide resources needed to get the best education possible at their university. However, I believe that it is not financially accessible for students that can not afford their expensive education. There is not a lot of financial aid, and students are left in the hole after graduating.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that attending grad school will help develop professional growth and feed my intellectual needs. It will provide me the necessary tools to be able to one day lead a successful preschool programs. Unfortunately, attending grad school is very expensive and therefore can become discouraging. I know that sacrificing now will pay off for a better future.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Small class size and in a cohort program which is great. School support is terrific. They really hold your hand and guide you through the program ans assist you in reaching your goal of a Masters and credential in 2 years. Tuition is expensive, but scholarships do help.

Degree: Counseling

One of the biggest pros that has come from my graduate program is how knowledgeable all of my professors are on the subject matter. One of the cons is that there is not enough financial aid
