Review of John Carroll University

My review

The Good:

What attracted me to John Carroll was its excellent reputation for academics. John Carroll prepares its students for the future, which is extremely important in today's competitive post graduate programs and career fields.

The Bad:

The worst thing about John Carroll might be the manner in which the administration handles controversy, conflict, and tragedies. Their reaction time to matters such as these as well as the poor way in which the administration reacts is unfavorable to students' welfare.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I had an amazing time at JCU. I honestly could have done much more during my four years. I could have become more involved in Immersion Trips, student government, ect. I loved my experience in the Greek community, though, and wish every day I could go back. Also, looking back, I could have improved scholastically.

About the reviewer

Went to Bishop Rosecrans High School

You might also consider Kent State U. Kent Campus, Walsh University

Favorite class is Child Development

Favorite professor is That's a tough one!--I would say Sheri Young, Psychology

Favorite activity is Greek events

Another awesome thing is How close the campus community is. It's small enough to get comfortable but big enough that you don't know everyone.

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? Make sure you have a good amount of community service on your resume. You will get financial aid for that! Also, get the highest ACT you can.

I wish I knew How challenging the curriculum is

Preparation for the workforce

Time needed to find a job post-graduation 1-6 months
