Wastes too much of the student's money onQuite BrightPharmacy
Wastes too much of the student's money on the landscaping that isn't watered, so it's just replanted over and over. This is only the start of the incompetency. If you are in the pharmacy program, they will change the program anytime they desire if they see fit. They also still have old incompetent teachers that teach what they think is right not what is published in multiple resources in scientific journals and such. Some of the staff is great, but majority is not that great. They hire too many Indian Exchange students to teach lab classes, who still have thick accents that makes it hard to understand the material.

Don't come here.Quite BrightPreMed and Medical
Don't come here. I went here for one year. My suite had 6 people and only one of them still attend. One of my friends owed 25 cents on his bill and they went to his class and kicked him out of it until he paid. Everyone is very cliquey. The parties consist of a billion people crowding around a keg, you get one cup of beer, and then the cops show up by 12. Everyone goes home on the weekends. A non SJU guest can only stay until 12. only one bar people really go to. mixed opinions on the professors some really good some horrible.

The good stuff - the dorms are nice. the campus is safe and beautiful. very responsive to students wants -- we wanted more cafeteria hours so they kept it open practically all night.the nice campus fooled everyone into going but the retention rate is so high because once everyone goes there they realize it sucks. if you're looking to make great friends DONT come here. if you're looking for the "college experience" DONT come here. If you're looking for a comfy dorm to sit in while you waste away $50,000 a year, St. Johns might be for you.

Please do not go to this school.Super BrilliantUndecided
Please do not go to this school. Since this is a Catholic school, I expected the students here to be nice. Instead, I found out that the students are rude and have nasty attitudes. The academics here are horrible because the courses they offer are exactly like the courses you took in high school, only easier(especially if you came from a competitive high school or a Catholic school). The commute here is horrible because you have to ride in a crowded bus where the some of the people, especially the bus drivers, can be twice as rude and nasty. The school gives you useless free stuff, just to give you the notion that every cent you or your parents pay is worth it. If you want to be competent enough to go to an excellent grad school, you could make a better choice than to consider going to this school.
