"It was a great school that provided lots of resources. Perfect for anyone who has a family. There is plenty of opportunity to take online classes if needed. The best part of the program is the internship. They provide hours in the site of choice which gears you up for the real world practice. If it wasnt so expensive then it would be a perfect school."

"I am currently in the Clinical Psychology program at Nova Southeastern University. The professors at the institution are extremely brilliant and helpful in all of the students endeavors. I do wish there was more academic competitiveness and social life available at this program, but the extracurricular and opportunities available are unlike any other."

"Overall, the Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at Nova Southeastern University's Center for Psychological Studies is an amazing program. It is interesting because many of the pros of the program are also its cons, and vice versa. For example the Psy.D. program is very large compared to other Psy.D. programs. This gives students an opportunity to interact and study with a very diverse population and encourages us to advocate for ourselves if we need help from a professor or other faculty member. However, the large class size does make it difficult to get noticed and to get opportunities to work with faculty on research projects, which can foster a competitive atmosphere among students. Similarly, it is great that NSU offers courses taught by a variety of professors. The upside is that each professor has their unique teaching style which again allows for a diverse and exciting learning experience. The downside is that there are often varying standards and workloads between professors teaching the same classes. I am about to start my second year in the program and overall I am very pleased. I knew I wanted to attend NSU and in fact, it was the only graduate school that I applied to. Every school has its issues, but overall, I think the pros outweigh the cons of the Psy.D. program at NSU's Center for Psychological Studies and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to earn a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology."

"Nova Southeastern University has been the best decision I could make in completing my doctorate. The faculty in the program are very supportive and hands on in their teaching approach. The work load is reasonable and assistance is readily available. The campus is very clean and beautiful. Cons associated with attending Nova solely fall under the cost to attend the institution. As a doctoral student in the Psy. D program, it is very expensive and financial assistance (aside from loans) are hard to secure. Another con to the doctoral program is the small amount of classes the institution is willing to take from students coming into the program with a Master's level degree in a directly related field."

"Pros- My graduate program offers a range of classes and concentrations that are really tailored to the interests and passions of the students. The professors are extremely helpful and understanding concerning class or program questions. The class sizes are very small, which offers a more hands on form of learning. I also appreciate the amount of resources available to graduate students that make studying and learning easier; like the student studying center and computer lab where students can use the printer. Cons- The only real con of the graduate program is the cost. I would like to live debt free however, student loans, tuition fees, and books are very expensive causing me to stress not only over my classes but my finances. Other than that typical complaint, my graduate program facilitates my learning and is efficiently preparing me for my future."

"Some of the pros in my graduate program is that the students benefit from having the expertise of full-time faculty whose primary interests and expertise are in the field of school psychology. The courses are strictly taught by professors and not teacher aides of any kind. Graduate students in the program will have the opportunity to link theory to practice by observing, consulting, assessing, and intervening with children, teachers, and parents at the school's Mailman Segal Center (MSC) for Human Development. Cons, about the program would mainly be related to the costs of the program since this is a private university and they do not have many financial assistance programs."
