Degree: Holistic Medicine
Graduation Year: 2018

Pacific college offers students the best Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine classes with great staffs and faculty. The campus is based in the heart of financial district which offers easy transportation and many local restaurants. The professors are here with passion to pass on their significant knowledge and wisdom. Hands on clinics are located downstairs where we get all the practical experiences. The class sizes are decent and classmates are very friendly. This school definitely helps to prepare students with their future career.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am surrounded by excellent teachers and highly competent supportive staff who collectively make my experience great. The only con is that I think the school should be more selective in admissions and more academically competitive.

Nothing prepared me for the amount of work required with this program. "Challenging" is an understatement. We get our butts kicked but we keep coming back for more because it's worth it. Our teachers are brilliant and very experienced. The material is fascinating. And we know that we will be able to take what we are learning and make a difference in people's lives. There is a tremendous amount of memorization involved- learning all the hundreds of Chinese herbs we use and the hundreds of acupuncture points we needle. There is no easy way around it. The location is safe and easy to get to. There might be easier acupuncture schools but I doubt if there are better ones.

This is a challenging but worthwhile program. If you do not have a sufficient support system while trying to maintain NYer lifestyle. It will be even tougher.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

PRO's: I find myself surrounded by Eastern Medicine sages from both near and far. The school also goes out of its way to provide many enrichment events and programs (especially through student council) that both broaden and deepen my understanding and experience of TCM both culturally and intellectually. CON's: Expense. This program is massively expensive to complete. I believe I will be somewhere around $200,000 in debt by the end of my schooling here. Every young professional's nightmare. Help!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

PRO's: This program is absolutely FILLED with Eastern Medicine sages from both here in the United States and spanning over the ocean to China. There are many extracurricular events held to deepen and broaden the understanding, application, and cultural experiences of TCM. I have had the pleasure of being constantly surrounded by new and interesting ideas and geniuses in the field. CON's: The schooling for TCM at PCOM is quite expensive..I think I will be in roughly $200,000 of debt before it is through...every young professional's NIGHTMARE. Help!
