This school isn't as great as everyone thinksQuite BrightOther
This school isn't as great as everyone thinks it is. They have limited majors you can choose from. The extracurricular activities the school offers are of low quality and have limited variety. The courses here are a joke, especially discover new york, which I think is a waste of time in addition to being very useless. The events in this school are also a joke because they offer you free items, purcased from the money you pay for your tuition here. If you are very smart, don't go here, because you will only get bored here. If you are already studying at this school, make plans to transfer out of here as soon as possible, before the unchallenging courses here will make you dumb.

Question
Don't ever apply here, especially if you thinkQuite BrightUndecided
Don't ever apply here, especially if you think this school would be a great safety school for you because this place SUCKS BIG TIME. There isn't a lot of variety of extracurriculars that this school has to offer.The atmosphere of this school doesn't seem to exume an air of intelligence and the spread of liberal ideas. Some people here don't really seem to care about learning or improving themselves. They also seem to be close-minded. If you are in a high school that offers the extension credits for this school, don't take them, because if you feel like transfering to a top tier

university, there is a very good chance the school you wish to transfer to
won't grant you transfer credits for those courses. Don't be decieved by the ''positive" things people say about this school; you will only regret believing them.

Question
If you are contemplating attending st.Quite BrightOther
If you are contemplating attending st. john's university, run the opposite direction. Attending this school was probably the worst life decision I could have possibly made. Other than the social life, St. John's is a miserable place to be. The professors are terrible, give or take a few of them, the food is disgusting, the strictness keeps you from being a free adult, and the worst part about it is the financial aid. The school as a whole could care less about you or your education, all they care about is the money that they can drain from the average american student that can barely afford to attend such an expensive university. I hope that before you take that step and choose St. John's for school, keep in mind what I have said, because it is ALL TRUE!
