    For prospective students, I would recommend that you get involved. One of the best parts of college life is getting involved. Join clubs, organizations and events that encourage you to meet people and learn new things. John Jay College is a great place to learn what degree/ career you want to pursue and how to get there.

    If you are interested in Criminal Justice, Forensics, etc., please look at other schools before fully committing to John Jay. Pace University, for example, has a great criminal justice program. Whatever you do, make this school your LAST RESORT. This is a horrible school. Don't find out the hard way.
