    I took a few years off of school after I graduated high school to save up. Next thing you know, I' m a secretary at a law firm because is the only place hiring in the area. Not my ideal job. So I looked for schools that offer medical training and ended up deciding between becoming a medical assistant and a licensed massage therapist. For those of you considering which one is best, massage therapists can choose their own hours if they work for themselves, whereas massage therapists can't. THAT was the biggest difference for me that sold me on becoming a massage therapist. I wasn't really ready for the level of education this school offers and my first year was really tough but the faculty was SO helpful. By the end, I aced my finals AND learned the real value in being a student here.

    The school is geared towards individuals looking to make a career out of what they learn. Before you make a decision on which school to attend, be sure to visit NY College and talk to their faculty and former graduates. It will give you a good idea if this is the right school for you or not.

    I have attended a C E course here and am pleased to say that it had exceeded my expectations. As a licensed Acupuncturist, I wanted to learn more in acupuncture as I'm always growing.

    Great school to attend. I study massage therapy and have long classes, but the faculty keeps my attention and takes time to thoroughly explain anything I have trouble with. I like the cafe we have as well - it's convenient, inexpensive and a good combination of comfort food with quick snacks. The staff is very friendly too and considering the amount of time I spend there, it has become a second home.

    Quality is what I think when New York College comes up. The school sets high standards and expects everyone â?? from the faculty to the staff to the students â?? to follow it. However, each student receives the help they ask for which can be so rare in health care schools. Typically those schools stuff their classes with volume, without much consideration for the quality of education. Considering Oriental medicine covers a myriad of techniques and principles and is a masters degree course, individual attention is a MUST and New York College instructors provide it.

    Iâ??ve always wanted to study massage therapy, but finding the right school was a challenge for me. Iâ??ve heard too many horror stories about people wasting their money on a program they got sold on. Any time I called schools, I would be very skeptical of the people at the schools telling me how great their programs are and it all seemed staged to me. When I went to the New York Colleg e open house, I was greeted genuinely and was impressed that they have flexible schedules in multiple places which was what I needed to fit in with my current job. It was re-assuring and working out great for me.

    If you are interested in studying the therapies mentioned above, visit New York College's open house or offices. Keep in mind that they do have 4 locations - 3 in the city and 1 on Long Island - so choose the one most convenient for you.

    I started last year in massage therapy and I really like it. I came here straight from high school which I don't think a lot of people do because most students here are older than me, but I prefer to be in a more sophisticated atmosphere. It definitely is no-thrills College as there aren't many (if any) clubs or Greek life, but it definitely helps focus on studying for the career ahead.

    Students that are looking to pursue a career in a holistic health field, such as massage therapy, HAVE to visit New York College. Their private-school environment allows for professors to deliver high quality education to students, while providing them with individualized attention.

    The one aspect that attracted me the most to New York College is how the information is taught. Being that the College is a non-profit, private establishment, the professors are able to dedicate more attention to each student. For me this is necessary as I have been in private schools my whole life and I learn best in such an environment. Many of the professors are practicing in the field and itâ??s comforting to know that I am being taught information that will be relevant once I graduate.
