"I was really excited when I first started John Jay in 2019. I began school during the year Covid hit so unfortunately I wasn't able to experience beginning school in the actual building. Besides for being completely lost and being given no assistance, once school began in person it just got worse. First of all, the guidance is terrible. My counselor knew less than I did. I had to research intensely and pretty much figure things out myself. Also, if you have any learning disabilities or require special assistance, this is not the right place. I put a lot of effort trying to get special help because of my issues, and after all that, the school simply sent me an email and said if I needed assistance I could watch the video they sent on how to get help. They are very against actually sitting down with a student and trying to help. They will just keep sending you emails of other people to email. I'm in my third year and I don't think I'll be finishing here. I'd rather go to a smaller school where they care about the students, than a large school that cares only about their name and publicity. This is pretty much a school that will keep you sending you in circles just so each person who is supposed to do their job doesn't actually have to do anything. I met only one person out of the many I spoke to who actually did what their job title claimed. And their claims of financial aid - pretty much one big lie. For a big school with many offices and workers, it is very disappointing."

"John Jay college despite being a city school where the campus isn't that big, was able to offer me everything I needed to progress and continue my education. I was able to take online classes when needed and in person when required. I can say that John Jay was very important in my life."

"Out of all the CUNY colleges, I personally believe John Jay was the best. The faculty was the most amazing and were for the most part always willing to help you further your education. I have created more ideas and generated the best connections with people in this school. I have learned more about who I am as a person, and what I want to become as a person. When I started John Jay I really had no idea what I wanted to do but thanks to the faculty and the variety of classes offered in John Jay I was able to start a path to where I want to be."

"People often discredit CUNY schools but by far attending John Jay was the best decision of my life. Not only is it affordable, but the instructors are extremely knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated to their students. There are so many internships, fellowships and research opportunities that offer hands-on experiences that truly prepare you for the real world. Their student organizations also give you a chance to meet new people and gain lifelong leadership skills. Most importantly, my education has helped me obtain great employment opportunities and further my education! John Jay is a WIN-WIN university!"

"I graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in 2013 and I cannot envision myself graduating from another school. I would recommend John Jay College to any student who are interested in pursuing a degree in criminal justice or forensic psychology. There is a large variety of courses to choose from such as juvenile delinquency to sociology of violence. Some of the professors are very knowledge and try to work with you. The location is very convenient and commercial. Tuition is very affordable around 2k a semester."

"Tell us about your college experience.Even though I wish I had went away to school, I did enjoy John Jay College! I joined clubs and became an active student So my experience was great and fulfilling.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes I would because I love what I learned about which is the psyche of Adolescent Offenders. Only thing I would change is that I would have done the 5year program they offered so I could get my Masters and Bachelors in 5yrs.What advice can you offer other students?I found that I performed better in school when I didnt have a job. My senior year i focused strictly on school work and I had and A in ever class! and was able to spread out my classes so i have breaks in between to study or not be as stressed during mid terms and finals. So my advice is if you can afford it, try to stay home with your patents as long as possible and just focus on your classes so you can perform to the best of your ability!"
