Sacred Heart University

Our daughter has been in the OT Graduate Program, and is so discouraged. She is an A+ student who strives for perfection in everything she does. She studies and applies herself every day, yet it seems nothing is ever good enough. The teachers are arrogant and nasty, are not approachable, and insist on only cramming enormous amounts (100 pages at a time) of intricate medical information, yet only give them 10 question on the test. Every single student in the class fails the test because it is way too much to comprehend in such a short amount of time, and it is impossible to prepare without adequate preparation by the professor. Each student is forced to self-teach themselves, and half the time, the grades need curving by at least 20 or 30 points at a time because every student fails the test! When a student asks a viable question, they are shot down by the teacher who makes them feel embarrassed as if they are asking below standard questions. After 5 years in the program, our daughter is made to believe that her interest should be in another field because she just can?t hack it, or handle the load. The advisors have no answers and do not help at all, and there isn?t any encouragement by the teacher or the staff! This college is more interested on outward beauty on the campus, and they hope that their students fail their courses so that they can continue funding their campus improvement projects. How sad is that? This university should get its priorities straight! These OT students are more than eager to excel, and are very intelligent students who are putting their blood sweat and tears into their healthcare careers, and are hoping to make a difference in the world. Maybe they should be given some respect, information and coaching so that they can be successful. If you are considering this college for your son/daughter, please think again. It may look nice on the outside, but is just a money-grabber, and all smoke and mirrors. They should focus more on preparing their students for the amazing careers ahead of them.

The University of Tampa

I had a terrible experience at the university of tampa. Graduation and retention rates are both very low. Both are below 60% and that means many students here are not happy, so they transfer to another university. I transferred after my second year to another university in Florida since I was paying +50k and it was not worth it at all. DO NOT COME HERE.

Santa Clara is expensive but completely worth it. Overall it is a great investment and a well respected university not only in the west coast but in the entire country.

I am so grateful for coming to Santa Clara. I had a great time here that could not have been better. I got my dream job after graduating and I am making +100k in California and so happy with my job. Santa Clara is getting better and better each year. SCU is a top-notch university and it is just perfect. Location, rankings, campus, professors, and the community is what make Santa Clara unique.

Coming here was the best experience ever. Santa Clara is an amazing university. You will probably have a wonderful experience too because SCU is unique compared to other schools. Amazing campus, community, and location. Santa Clara is at least top 50 in the country and top 5 in California. The location, campus, and strong sense of community are what make Santa Clara unique. The good thing is that SCU is getting better and better.
