Worst college. Totally money minded people. Very few knowledgeable professors. Less value for money

Degree: City/Urban, Community and Regional Planning
Graduation Year: 2013

San Jose State University offered an amazing staff and a diverse student body. The Masters program focused on real world learning as opposed to others which concentrate on book learning. This meant that there was far more opportunity to learn, gain experience, and gain in-roads with future employers. On the opposite side the program was relativity easy if you wanted it to be, the assignments themselves where fairly simple, and hard to fail. San Jose State's Urban Planning program gave amazing opportunities and you get twice as much as you put in BUT if you need to be pushed to be your best this may not be the best school for you.

Amazing school. I work with other individuals who all went to Berkeley and have no problem competing with them in a work environment.

The school has a lot of programs and good professors. But what makes the school are the student lead organizations. They are connected and get you in places that really benefit you. It is important to at least talk to people and try new things. The business department is big and have a lot of courses but also be prepared to crash classes if you are not prepared and plan your time accordingly. A lot to do and a great area to take advantage of it all.

San Jose State is a good school IF you choose the right professors within the right majors. Otherwise, there's a lot of classes and professors that were a waste of time. If you're going to go there, seek out the departments for which it's most respected. Many of the others aren't worthwhile.

San Jose State provided a good balance of hands-on learning and academia.. Although I believe the program accommodated too many sub-par students it gave you the opportunity to "get out what you put in" to a very high level.

SJSU is a great place to get your degree. I understand people want to go to the UC's because of the reputation they have. In all honesty, I am working with many folks who all went to UC Berkeley and never felt as my degree from SJSU wasn't good enough. Here we are in the same job working together!

Okay classes, hard to register, take night classes, winter, summer, whatever you can to get units in. Double check that all your classes count for graduation. There were mistakes in the class registration book, and I ended up taking classes that didn't count for anything. Huge waste of time and money because of a typo.
