"Highly don't recommend. Most of your professors are adjunct or PhD candidates. You won't be learning from people who have been in the field longer than you have (sometimes I was in the field longer than them!). This school also does not care about minority groups. They talk about diversity and inclusion but their words do not match their actions. Do not expect to be treated equally here. The worst part was the thesis. The thesis process was the most aversive thing I have ever experienced. They kept sending back my thesis approval for the most ridiculous reasons (e.g., they changed their IRB phone number) and took over 6 months to give me approval for an exempt thesis (i.e., no vulnerable population). I took an extension thesis course and will likely have to take a second because of this absurd lack of professionalism from a school that calls themselves "professional" psychology. Unbelievable. Entire experience was soured by this process. And the school has the audacity to blame me and not assist or give me an alternative in anyway so I can graduate. They took over 50,000 in tuition and want me to pay for their mistakes. The least they could do is give tuition back for the extensions (or better yet, not charge a student for an extension that is clearly the school's fault!). Do not go here. You can get a better, cheaper education somewhere else."

"The professors were AMAZING. They really helped you with what you needed and went out of their way for you. Small classes hep so you can ask questions. The admin in the other hand was a pain. They always send you to someone else if you have a question and that was annoying. Overall I enjoyed my time there and it was really because of the professors. They all really wanted to help you succeed."

"After having graduated and having had multiple interviews no employer seems to appreciate the value of this degree. I have networked my butt off. Increased my LinkedIn network by 500+ since starting the program and I still have not found a job. Get this degree to end in recruiting and job requires nothing."

"Do not attend this school. It is overpriced, and the faculty are unresponsive. The program I am in is a "hybrid" program, mostly online and classes 2x a month for 4 hours. Well, it is supposed to be for 4 hours, but certain teachers dismiss after 2, wasting the money paid for specific credit hours. Out of all the professors I had since 2014, I would only say 3 (out of 7), are worth their salt in terms of knowledge, rigor, responsiveness, professionalism and teaching ability. The thesis, and arguably most important, is basically completed independently, because the Department Chair (Mary Anderson) is so unresponsive. Not entirely her fault because the department clearly needs more PERMANENT (it's all adjunct) faculty, but still this is wasting students' time and money, and not helping them become competent researchers."

"The Chicago School is a great campus if you desire to learn on a more intimate interaction; the instructors are awesome and the input that they give to your career and also to the field of counseling is awesome. I really am impressed with the school and I am excited about going into the field."

"The Chicago School of Professional Psychology has definitely had a positive impact on my life. I enrolled knowing that I would be willing to commit to a career in psychology. My professors and fellow students at the Chicago School reinforced my convictions in my career choice. The professors were firm and stuck to their schedule, but they always found time to help you out if you had a question or just wanted to talk. I'm the kind of student who would always like to take advantage of office hours and I knew the emails of my professors on the top of my head. I'm happy that the professors patiently helped me since I hear that other professors in other schools don't have as much time to help students. My fellow classmates were fun to be around and I made plenty of friends and study buddies. I'd have to say that my experience at the Chicago school was exceptional. I should mention that the guys at the college asked me to write this review. Overall, I would recommend this school to any student serious about committing to psychology."
