The school pretty much only cares about whetherBrightLinguistics
The school pretty much only cares about whether or not they're going to get money from you. Even my advisor has said to me many a time that this school will not hesitate for a second to charge you for something. Considering how much money I pay a year (56K to be exact), I expected SO much more. In my residence hall, one of the two elevators has been out of order since before we left for winter break! They spend our tuition money on things that only last a day (at most) like a huge fireworks display for a christmas tree lighting ceremony. They get 56K minimum per student and yet our dance team still had to create a gofundme account to be able to go to a competition. This is supposed to be a really good basketball school but the team is terrible!

You get what you pay for.
There are two distinct groups at St. John's: Those who go there because it was the cheapest school they got into, and those who go there because it was the only school they got into.I went here because it was cheap for me since I did very well in high school. The "honors" program is a joke, however, if you get in it, take honors classes. You'll meet some intelligent people and get to graduate with a honors. I studied maybe two hours per final this semester and got straight As. If you did well on AP tests, this college will be a breeze.

Finance major.Quite BrightFinance
Finance major. Undergraduate. The school only cares about money. They will try to get you to go there longer so you have to pay their high tuition longer. They will make you go 5 years for a 4 year program like some people I know. Give you extra classes for no reason. Don't trust your advisors. They work for the school not for you. The school costs $36000-38000 a year but they are not worth that much. They charge that much to make it "look" like a top quality school. They give a massive amount of scharships and use government aid to maximize the money they bring in while attracting enough students. They are totally unfair and unreasonable when it comes to tuition. They ripped me off by charging me a bunch more for my tuition and then tell me I have to take out 7% loans to pay the extra tuition I shouldn't be charged. Very money-hungry school. Would not go there if you have to borrow a lot because this school will not land you a good job. Terrible experience. Not worth it. Go some place else.
