"I just had to leave this school because of how expensive it is. This is my MAIN complaint. I thought it was going to be worth the price but I do not think it was. It was not very compatible to working a full time schedule of 40+ hours. The professors were there to help but I needed more support. They started me out of order and I did not do as well as I COULD have due to lack of prior knowledge. This school is great if you are only doing grad school and not working full time. But other than that I understand most programs and facility members at this school are amazing. I unfortunately can't afford to stick around to see this, for financial reasons. I will still recommend this school to those who can afford it and are not working full time."

"I enjoyed the size because it felt like a small community. However, there were some times when the religious aspect of the school was a bit more noticable than I thought it would be. I know it's a Catholic school but things like the Dunkin Donuts on campus not being able to serve meat during lent was a bit much."

"This program is very rigorous but also very relevant to the real-world Mental Health Field. The professors are knowledgeable and have a wealth of experience outside the classroom."

"The program at Assumption College is really preparing me for my future in the rehabilitation counseling field. The faculty really values our opinions as a class and understands that we want to learn as much as possible within two years. There are very few cons to this graduate program, other than some of the material is dry. But that is common in any type of schooling."

"Assumption's graduate program offers the options for completing either on campus or online, either part time or full time. Classes are offered usually in the afternoon hours which gives the people who work during the day, an opportunity to go to work then classes. This can be a pro or a con for some based on one's employment situation. The instructors are helpful, highly qualified and accessible and class size makes the classroom environment more comfortable. Overall, assumption college is , so far, providing an enriched graduate school experience."

"Pros of my institution: it is quite diverse, beautiful surroundings and facilities to enhance student lives. They provided added support for career enhancement and development. There is a shuttle that goes to all the colleges in the area and it is FOR FREE. It is easy to talk to staff and peers. There is a wonderful administrative system and strong Catholic presence. Excellent volunteer organizations and opportunities. Cons of the institution: it is not as diverse as many schools. There are not enough opportunities for international students and employment on campus is extremely limited and there are not many opportunities. In addition, there are no scholarly awards for graduate students that recognizes all the hard work and dedication they put in to achieve excellence."

"Even though this is my first year in the MBA program at Assumption College, I have fallen in love with the school and the program. The professors are great and they are always available for questions or concerns with the material. The small classes are great for one-on-one learning and the classes are very relevant to business today. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to further their education."
