CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice Reviews - Bachelor's in Criminal Justice
Review of Criminal Justice Bachelors Degrees
I attended John Jay College and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree. Although I loved the professors, school location, and curriculum, I do not feel like my expectations after graduating from a well known school were fulfilled. It took me almost a year after graduating to obtain employment and I get paid close to minimum wage which makes me wonder if my degree was worth the time and money spent. I am not satisfied with my current pay compared to the loans I accrued while attending the school. I graduated with honors and consistently made it on the Dean's List but was never offered a scholarship or a grant from the school for my achievements. The school overall is great, but don't expect financial assistance, networking opportunities, or finding a job right after graduation.
John Jay is as fun as you make it. Everyday the school has different activities dealing with justice and can really help when it comes to networking, Once you build that relationship, the staff are very nice and helpful and does not mind when dealing with the million and one questions you might have. Many resources to start you career. I love my time at John Jay and cannot wait to go back for my Graduate studies.
It's a good college, no complaints other than the bureaucratic side which was very annoying to deal with.
Very good college! If you're into the criminal justice field, psychology, forensic, etc. This is the place for you.
My college experience was a very fun one. Right in Manhattan, all of my friends were there, did a lot of cool things and learned a lot about my field and myself in the process.
I would choose the same degree, I have a very fulfilling career now with much room for promotions and possibly working for federal agencies.
Try your best to keep your debt to a minimum. It is sad to say but "you can be anything you want to be" isn't exactly a term that is feasible anymore.
