I can't speak of the quality of the education at the school, only the administration. I made the decision about a year ago to leave the military to pursue a career in physical therapy. In order to get into PT school I needed a handful of science classes, as well as several hours of observation/volunteer ours at a PT clinic. It looked like it would be challenging to do both at the same time but then I found JFKU's weekend science program. By taking one class a month during the weekend I would be able to focus on my volunteer hours during the week. As a vet I planned on using my GI Bill at the school and I was ensured by the veterans' rep that I would be able to do so last summer. I was pretty excited to take the first step towards a new career. I found an internship at a brain injury clinic in San Jose to get my hours, my fiancee started looking for jobs in the area, and we started looking for a place to live. Everything was going fine until a little over the month ago when I made contact with the financial office to finalize my GI Bill paperwork. Despite what I was told before (I still have the email) I was informed that I would NOT, in fact, be able to use my GI Bill. The Weekend Science Program was not approved by the VA. This is something that the veterans' rep at the school obviously should have known. The school is expensive and I could not afford it without the GI Bill. With the help of some friends I was able to scramble and find another school that would work, as well as a new internship. This was not the first time I had problems with the administration. It would often take weeks and several emails to get a response back from pretty much every office at the school. My adviser changed several times and they never really seemed to know their job. I get the feeling that there is a lot of turnover at the school. This interaction, of lack thereof, was always unsettling but I was able to overlook it because the program really fit my needs to a T. The GI Bill fiasco was merely the last straw. As a soldier I moved around a lot and I went to several different schools of varying size, both private and public, and this is by far the worst experience I ever had. The quality of education may be fine (although the fact that the VA didn't approve the program leads me to believe that the quality is indeed lacking), but the administration is incompetent. There are plenty of school in the South Bay area, I would look elsewhere if I were you.Read More
If you are interested in attending, go to an open house and speak with someone about the program in a one-on-one. In addition, it was invaluable for me that I sat in on some classes to get a feel for the education I would experience and the caliber of students I would be working with.Read More
