"I've just completed my first year of the IP Phd program (trauma concentration). It has been a great experience. The professors have a wealth of knowledge, they are concerned about you're academic well-being and are quick to respond if you have questions or concerns. The university is fast with responding as well. My cohort's field experience was canceled 3 times no fault of the TCSPP, but due to political atmosphere in one country and covid-19 in 2 other countries. They were concerned with the safety of the students and faculty. It has been an absolute please being a PhD student at TCSPP and I look forward to my continued studies and I am very happy that I made the choice to attend."

"How tremendously disappointing! I had been thrilled at the time of my acceptance but have become increasingly broken-hearted at the lack of support, the disengagement and lack of interest on the part of instructors and the "disconnected-ness"of the entire educational experience. This is not a school that cares about the success (or satisfaction) of its students."

"Do not attend this school. It is overpriced, and the faculty are unresponsive. They harrass and retaliate against you for complaining and your complaints fall on deaf ears. Everyone from the president to faculty is terrible and unresponsive. If youre a white male you might get treated a tad better. Stay away from this school. They are HORRIBLE."

"Most of my classes were done online and so I barely spent any time on campus, aside from the few classes I took on campus. Though the time that I was there, was always one of the best experiences I've had. The people are so nice, my teachers were amazing, their instructions were great and I found myself understanding everything. I think the Chicago school can take pride in the fact that they have some of the greatest teachers making sure the students pass their classes. It was rather stressful at times, but isn't any school stressful? However, once you apply yourself, and take discipline, you'll find that everything else becomes much easier and you kind of have fun with your classes. It helps if this is your passion, and if you love helping people. I would have rated everything excellent, but not everything is perfect, though this comes quite close to it."

"I spent about 8 years studying in this school for my PhD. I was lucky to begin studying early at 17 years old. Although I knew what I was getting myself into when I began on my journey to get a PhD. I always prepared myself for the worst and focused solely on my studies. I must say, Chicago school makes it easier than expected. I didn't get that stressed as I could have in other schools, and I was really thankful for this. But I guess it depends on your level of discipline, when you start on a long journey such as this. This is a really great school, from the beginning they teach you new skills that you can use to start getting ready within your desired field. With this, I started working in a related field in Psychology, with kids and teenagers before even graduating. It helps that they see you are capable to deal with this though. I wasn't treating the kids, I was simply helping and assisting and working in the offices where they did. If you have a love for the job, then you will find it really rewarding. Before this, I had to support myself working on other jobs unrelated to the field I work in now. Like post offices, coffee places, and so on... Anyway, as long as you persevere with your chosen field I believe you can go far. I came here without expectations and free of a mind with a set future. I let the journey take me where it had to, and that helps a lot with the stress of having to hand in homework on time, while also balancing a job. I've finished graduating at 2012 and am now working in Psychology, with my very own patients and it definitely gets easier. You get to choose your schedule, and you work at your own pace while maintaining a good relationship with your patients and being financially stable. I didn't give it such a perfect rating, because there were times when the teachers were definitely unfair, but that's not the school's fault. You just have to learn how to choose your teachers, and deal with the ones that you don't like, just like in any other school. But if you know where to go, you can avoid immature students as well as teachers. Most of the teachers that taught me where indeed very professional, and wise beyond their years, and I appreciated that they were always willing to help me out. So, if you're looking for a good choice of school, this one is it."
