"So far my experience with the Forensic Science faculty and student body has been very positive. Your peers are there to help as long as you ask and faculty members are more than willing to provide advice and counseling. I should have done my Undergraduate degree at CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice!!"

"The pros to the Forensic Science Graduate program at John Jay College are that the classes are small, granting the students improved access to the professors. Also, the professors who teach the courses are well-known and very accomplished in their prospective fields. The cons are that the graduate program is very similar to the undergraduate Forensic Science program. There should be a focus on what is actually done in a forensic laboratory along with a didactic teaching of the theory behind forensic science. Also, much of what is taught in the Criminalistics track is outdated. There should be an introduction to automated instrumentation and modern forensic science procedures."

"This program is renown and held in high esteem by many law enforcement agencies. The work is familiar but far too similar to the undergraduate curriculum. However, there are plenty of research opportunities for students to take advantage of, which allow for valuable laboratory experience. Unfortunately, graduate students do not get enough grants and have to rely on loans to pay academic expenses. Other than that, the program is fine."

"The MS program in Forensic Science at John Jay College is one of the nation's premier graduate programs in forensics. With faculty who are leaders in the field, new laboratory space, and several crime labs nearby with internship programs, the graduate experience at John Jay is top notch."
