"In my opinion, I feel the courses are both challenging and insightful. The professors are very knowledgable of the field. I do feel I am getting the necessary education to prepare me for my future in counseling. The only drawback is the availability of the courses. Some courses are only available one semester out of the year."

"Lewis University provides the perfect blend of quality professors and students working within the field of study to assist adult learners achieve at high levels. The immediate feedback received helps students take what is being learned and put it into immediate action. Lewis gave me the chance to grow as a professional while providing the opportunity to prove not only to myself but to my undergraduate institution that the grade point average I achieved was not indicative of the kind of student I am capable of being."

"Chance to Work with Professors As a graduate student, you will find many opportunities to work with professors. Working with professors will provide excellent work experience in your specialized field of study and most likely you will get paid in the form of financial aid or a stipend. Learn More About a Subject You Enjoy Of course this is assuming you enjoy the subject you are considering going to graduate school for. You'll get to study subjects much more in depth than you did in undergraduate courses. Earn a Higher Salary On average, students with graduate degrees earn a higher salary than students with only a bachelors degree. Many jobs now prefer to hire applicants with graduate degrees, and so a graduate degree could present a job opportunity unavailable to undergraduates. Cons More School Many students are/were aching to finish up undergraduate studies, and the thought of five more years in college to earn a doctorate degree just isn't very appealing. Cost of Graduate School Graduate school can be expensive if you don't have any source of financial aid. Contact prospective graduate schools to find out what is available. Stress Graduate school can be stressful for some because of the depth at which graduate students study their subject."

"Pros: From what I know, and have heard, it's very in touch with the students needs, as far as preparing them for future careers. The instructors all have varied backgrounds, and offer insightful perspectives on how to do well as a counselor/therapist and are always available to discuss personal questions, class work, or inquiries into the field."
