I felt as if I was being taken advantage of. I went to this school assuming I would be prepared to seek a license. I asked numerous times (in writing), to which I was told by now a former advisor, "oh no, you're fine with the program you're in". My success team had all but moved on to another job or something, I couldn't contact anyone other than my advisor. From start to finish, I expressed my desire to become a therapist but was placed in the general psychology Master's program. I was very excited about going back to school and very enthusiastic about this new journey. I overlooked obvious red flags here.
Along the way through, I had a feeling I was missing something. I found out my state requires a degree in counseling, which I asked about changing a few more times and received no reply. I was an online student and was treated as such. My grades were good and ended with a 3.9, I didn't meet or see any of my professors at my graduation as we were rushed down the stage (Class of 2022) so maybe I'm bitter.
The fact that a well known repeated plagiarizer graduated with our class should say a lot as well.

NLU has a great team of admissions counselors, financial aid staff, advisors and faculty. I had a lot of angst, transferring at the beginning of the year. They jumped to my aid and helped me through. I have only been here for five months, but I feel at home!

National Louis University offered a Bachelor's program in my area that provided a general degree that could be used for many different areas. I really liked the idea of cohorts and that you have the same individuals through out your college experience.
What I like best about National Louis University was that I had the same classmates through out the cohort. We really got to know one another and provided each other with support. I still talk to some of my classmates now. The Professors were also willing to help when needed and very open minded. We would explore both sides of an arguement as well as the grey areas in-between.
My classmates were very mature and opened when it came to group projects. They were also very resourceful due to certains fields of employemtn. I apprecitaed their experiences and responce to certain sistuations that presented themselves while in class. I was fortunate to be in a cohort during my 12 months and we became very close. There are some classmates that I stay in contact with and with share different resoucrs to help our clients.
I believe that my school is best known for producing good teachers and good counselors. They have an excellent teachers program and an excellent counseling program as well. They also have a way with helping you learn how to do research appropriately.
Those who should not attend would have to be the students who do not really want to go to school, for it is not a cheep school to attened.
That I received a curriculum that was informative and the professors initiated support.
Not enough input from the students to allow for flexability as to each persons needs.
