"Great school, great connections with internship placements in the area. Not often great communication between the administration and the students."

"William James College has met, and exceeded all my expectations. The professors are outstanding, and the classes are rigorous but always relevant. For someone like myself who learns best by "doing", the clinical experience starting in the first days of the program has been most valuable. Being in Boston, I've met grad students from many other psychology programs in the area, all of whom envy my training and knowledge base I've gained from my experience and training at WJC. William James College deserves its reputation as training the best of the best. The college is small, nearly 800 students in all programs, and there are pros and cons to this. It allows for really personal interactions with professors and staff; you will always have access to someone who can advise or help. The college wants you to succeed. The cons are the limited extracurricular opportunities, although there is a real spirit of pride and belonging at the college. I couldn't be happier with the PsyD program and am excited every day to be a part of this program at WJC."

"My graduate school specializes in providing a range of psychology degree paths all striving to combat mental health issues at their core. William James' reputation strives to provide direct service to those in need. Within my experience as an enrolled doctoral student in clinical psychology, the school places great emphasis on impacting society through exposing its student body by focusing on direct clinical experiences through field placements starting immediately. The school is perfect for those that seek this kind of hands-on experience with diverse communities and populations. The major downside is this emphasis on clinical work forces research development and experience to take a backseat. This combined with the very limited finances of a smaller intuition comprises the two major cons to this graduate school."

"MSPP has so far met my expectations for a program that is both challenging and rewarding. The material we are presented with has helped my understanding in clinical concepts and what my role as a clinician is, in the practical setting of psychological therapy. The campus is small in size but continues to grow in community and support as well. I am pleased that MSPP offers a concentration in Latino Mental Health (LMH), which only reinforces my decision for having applied to the school in the first place. I've received so much so support as a first- year Clinical Psychology, Psy.D. student and look forward to going to school twice a week, full-time. The cons of this school only have to do with the space provided. Although the campus is large enough for the student body, it continues to grow and the building can sometimes feel too crowded (especially in classrooms). There are also very few school amenities provided and would have liked to have an on campus gym and larger library. I would also have expected some study room areas because sometimes the common areas can get a bit noisy. Overall, I would highly recommend this school to anyone that is serious about engaging in thorough training as a Clinical Psychologist."

"MSPP is a wonderful and enriching school. The faculty do go out of their way to make sure we, students, are taking advantage of the education provided. I thoroughly enjoy all of my classes and the work given is up to par with what I expected a doctoral program to demand."
