What impressed you positively?

"I had two interviewers-one professor and one current student (interviews were seperate) who were both very nice. The grad student seemed very happy with what the program provided her and the professor seemed interested in getting to know my interests and why I felt I was a good fit for their program. Any other staff I came across were very friendly and helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"Warm atmosphere & friendliness of faculty & other applicants" More from this Member | Report Response

"They have wireless internet access, 4 computer labs, a big library, and are linked to the UC and Cal-State systems for inter-library loans and articles. (This was at the San Francisco campus)" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is no financial aid funding other than student loans and even then they don't allow you to take out enough to get by on. Ideally they don't want you to work while you are in a doctorate program but I find it difficult when I only get about $5,000 per semester after paying tuition. I had to take out another loan (Gradplus). The San Diego campus got rid of their bookstore which means you have to buy all your books online." More from this Member | Report Response

"Vague on the subject pool that will be used for research thesis" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like the school was trying to sell themselves to me rather than finding out if I am a good match. Other applicants were not very competitive- many had not taken psychology classes prior to interviewing or have research experience. The school does not offer funding." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer seemed to hurry us along a bit. I'm not sure if he was trying to sound engaged in our answers or if he really just wanted a very short answer. He did it to everyone, with a lot of ''mmhmm'' and ''yes'' while we were talking." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Despite being expensive I am very happy with what the program has provided me so far. The faculty are passionate about psychology and very supportive, they really want to see you succeed. My peers are nice and we all seem to get along well. I am very happy with my decision to attend here." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus was not impressive, and is not up-to-date with technology (eg: wireless campus)." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience. I liked the facilities; they are bigger than they look from the outside. I think being directly across from Pier 39 may become a negative thing with the traffic and tourists, but at least the campus is near things. The student giving the tour really tried to sell the school to us; she seemed happy with her decision to go there." More from this Member | Report Response
