"Pros: The staff are generally polite and knowledgeable in their field. Cons: The new CUNY academic excellence fee was very sudden and unexpected. I am disappointed that such a high fee is being put into place without any information having been given to graduate students in the program."

"Hunter is a great value. The programs are competitive because the cost is so low. There are literally the same professors who teach at Columbia, NYU, Fordham at a fraction of the cost. The downside is the logistical aspect. So you have to be proactive about any information you need, registering for classes, requirements for your program etc. they don't just provide it for you and things can slip through the cracks if you're not on top of it."

"Overall, the mental health counseling program has a great curriculum aimed at current issues, theories, as well as necessary counseling skills. It teaches upcoming counselors how to work with such a multicultural and diverse world. The campus is shared with undergraduate programs, but it located in the great location in Manhattan. The library and other campuses are being renovated, a bit slower than I would like but what has been done is great.There as several campuses to Hunter College on the east side but most classes are held at the main campus. The professors have a variety of experiences, and most are supervising or have their own practices. Everyone I have met in the program have been helpful with career ideas and tips. The tuition is much less than private schools. Their are events throughout the school so social life is 'okay' just because most people in the program have other responsibilities . That being said, it is a program that is just a bit more flexible than others with evening courses available for those who work full time. Workload is manageable, reading, responses and even an internship is required for the program. If you are interested I say do the research and speak with advisors to get a clear picture of the requirements, etc."
