The school has some great things and some not so great things. Academically, I cannot complain. The way everything is set up is great and the professors are really dedicated and want to you pass. Socially, the school is terrible for me. Everything is so dead on weekends and evenings and the school has ZERO school spirit. There are some events happening around campus all the time but they're never advertised well so they're all pretty dead. Other than that, the campus is pretty and very perfect for something in NYC. Overall, I don't think its worth the cost!

St. John's is a great place to learn and meet new people. However, it comes with a huge price. If the price is affordable to students, then I think it's highly recommended for students to attend St. John's. I say this because of the experience I have had here at St. John's. I would have loved to stay and be a part of the class of 2019. But financial issues were holding me back. I'm sure this goes for many of my peers there.
