"Okay so first of all of you are a minority meaning Latino, Black, or Asian etc do not come to this school! They only cater to their own kind of people which is Jewish. They treat minority students like we don’t matter and they do not care about the complaints that you give whether it’s about class or your internship. When it comes to academics unless you’re lucky to get a professor that actually is really good, you are on your own learning and teaching yourself. They do not give you any financial help or scholarships unless you’re Jewish and you’re technically on your own financially. I do not advise anyone that is a minority to come to this school. Stay far away and please consider other schools !!"

"The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is a great school! I loved almost all of my professors, and friends who transferred to "better" schools (NYU, Northwestern) told me that the quality of instruction they received went way down, as their professors were primarily hired for writing and not for teaching. Cardozo has a great selection of journals for students to be on. As a final note, the location is really just amazing -- Greenwich Village is just such a great place to be, not only for networking purposes, but for the nearby parks and variety of life experiences available to you. Seriously, walk to the comedy cellar after class, and you might see a few legends perform."

"One of the best things WSSW has to offer is their helpful, experienced, and well-connected faculty. Every professor I have encountered has been passionate about social work, social justice, and educating the future of the profession. They are all filled with endless knowledge and experience and are enthused at any opportunity to impart that knowledge to their students. Their guidance has helped me navigate educational and career opportunities in more ways than I can ever express."

"Yeshiva University is a great school because of its vast network in New York City. It has alumni in many different areas of business, medicine and non-profit all around the world. My experience was additionally enhanced by the quality of the professors. A majority of professors are experts in their fields who shared their real world experience with the students."

"The Wurzweiler School of Social Work's block program is very intense but very rewarding. Being able to complete all of your courses in less time is definitely an advantage; especially while learning valuable and useful lessons in the field of Social Work."

"It was nice going to a top ranked university. It wasn't cheap and it will be a journey to it back this debt but I think that it was worth it and I would do it again the same way if I had to."

"Ferkauf has it's good and bad like any graduate program. It is quite expensive considering many Clinical phD programs in the area support their graduate students. However, the mentorship is great and the school is very invested in it's students matching at APA internships. It is working hard to become a better school with more possibilities"

"My program pushes has a dual curriculum. Meaning I spent everyday four days a week from 9-645, and later on lab days, in a classroom. It was super competitive and I really did not enjoy it."

"The biggest pro is the quality of the education. The con is the commute. Anything nice and near the school is expensive. The long commute is worth saving money on rent and you can read on the subways."

"The pros are the professors really want the class to do well. Therefore they give us alot of resources and study guides. Also the school knows how to really pick awesome students. The entire class is very friendly. Cons is that since its a Jewish school, the food is kosher and doesnt have a great taste. The dorms are like apartments and are really affordable. It is near alot of food places (restaurants and grocery stores)."

"My school has provided me with a decent education. I feel that I could have had much better professors overall. The faculty and career services are there to help when needed, but they do not go out of their way to help you succeed."

"I feel that the pros of my graduate program are the teachers and academic advisors. The teachers and academic advisors are very personable and are there to help the students in the present and the future. I have taken a different teacher for every class thus far and have enjoyed each one and the unique style that they bring as educators. My academic advisors have been very supportive in helping me gain what I want to achieve out of the program. I feel that the cons of the graduate program is the school's inability to connect its students with each other. The school doesn't host many interesting social events that would potentially create an improved sense of student community and support. I also feel that the administration at my graduate program is inefficient and often last minute in their communication to the students on very important information."

"Our school is staffed by top faculty who truly care about the growth of students, the quality of learning, and one's ability to secure a job. Its students can compete with those of top schools upon graduation and leave a real mark in terms of scholarship and teaching. The major downside is the small size and funding of the institution. Students are not exposed to the kind of ongoing academic programming available at larger institutions that have large sources of funding. On account of this, students cannot become immersed in cultural and other studies and programs the same way their peers are elsewhere, which does create a bit of an uneven playing field for graduates. That said, despite the small size and means of the institution its produces extremely successful students and it continues to grow and, perhaps most important, is amenable to making changes upon receiving feedback from students."

"The biggest con of this program is its financial aid. Unlike other PhD programs, students have to take on HUGE financial burdens for their degree. The education and reputation of the program is solid but often questioned by students because of the huge demand on time and lack of compensation."
