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." 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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I wasn't getting my loan money until the second week of classes. It made buying books a bit difficult, especially since I had to buy them online." 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." Report Response
