The biggest problem with this educational institution is internship assistance. In two years, there have been 3 internship coordinators. The first one did not help me at all, as she was focusing on wrapping things up with the students that were ready to graduate. She never notified all the students and finished the end of the school year. The new internship coordinator did not start until after Labor Day of that year. She tried to help, but was not very successful in finding internships for many of the students. There was no "up-to-date" list of companies/organizations the school worked with. She left after one school year. There is now a new internship coordinator, and he leaves at 4-5PM; however, students attend classes in the evening, so he is never, ever available! I have sent out hundreds of letters/emails and made phone calls, to no avail. I do not have any faith that I will be properly trained or educated with field experience to find a job in the counseling field, and I do not anticipate ever being prepared to sit for the state test to get my license. I am now in debt (over and above of my expected financial aide borrowing) and job prospects are slim to none!

I have attended a few colleges/universities and I have to say I am most disappointed in the over-all experience. I have had no luck with my internship, which is mandated by the State of New York Higher Education. I was told (and other students as well) that it is my responsibility to find an internship. In the meantime, when contacting organizations or psychology based companies, I was told they do not deal with the students, but only deal with the school. I found two internships that have nothing to do with my major and after two semesters, have only accrued 1/2 of the first set of hours! In order to remain in school, I had to take 3 courses (as electives) in addition to the required coursework . . . . just to remain in school so I could "work for free" through my internship. I probably will not gain the necessary or required "internship experience" needed to find a job in the field, and I am now well over budget in the anticipated student loans borrowing process. I cannot work because I have to put in 20-25 hours per week for an internship, but I cannot drop out of school and get a job that is not in my field (because I won't be able to graduate)! It is a catch 22 and I am not feeling hopeful that I will ever get out of this mess! All I can say is, ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS ABOUT INTERNSHIPS REQUIRED BY THE STATE AND SCHOOL AND MAKE SURE YOU LOOK WELL IN ADVANCE. I searched about 6 months prior to when I thought I would be starting and it was not enough time! Also, stay away from Mental Health Counseling AND Marriage and Family Therapy, and focus on getting a degree in Social Work. Depending on your state and region of the country, research, research and research some more as to which degree is in demand, where you can get an internship, which specialty (if any) you are looking to focus in, and make sure there will be jobs after you graduate (during the temporary licensing period prior to taking the state test and pursuing your permanent state license.

Masters programs are usually rather standard with a few choice electives. Professors teach several courses. More group assignments and presentations, vs. APA style term papers. Also, many professors require test taking, which is most frustrating at a Masters level. Also, syllabus is given at the beginning of the semester and many professors constantly change the curriculum, which is very frustrating when the majority of students work full time jobs. More lax than other educational institutions I have attended. Class sizes are relatively small, and usually no more than 20 students per class; however, registration caps at about 25 per class. I have been in classes as small as 4-6.
