In short: Over-valued education if you're paying full tuition.

Pace provides a decent education with a mediocre reputation. You'll learn what you have to learn but employers will not be enthusiastic about hiring you (at least not at the entry-level). Obviously, they'll be more inclined to hire NYU and Columbia students.

The facilities at Pace are definitely adequate. Campus is clean and is located in an excellent area. Female to male ratio is about 3 to 1. A lot good-looking female students (at least when I was there).

The school offers a great accounting program. Almost all of my friends who majored in accounting received job offers from the Big 4. However, all other programs are mediocre.

Pace does not seem to care about reputation (or rankings). When I was a student in the school, Pace went from a 4th-tier school to a 3rd-tier school, which was not very competitive. I thought that by the time I graduate, the school will be a 2nd-tier school. But, I thought wrong.

I've made several communications with some of the faculty/management expressing my concerns about the school's ranking, but none of the faculty members responded to any of my communications. I understand a university is like a business - it needs money to operate - but at least respond (whether positively or negatively) to your students'/clients' requests.

Pace is good for people who already have good work experience who just need a degree to take their careers to the next level. However, for students who go straight from high school to college expecting a decent job after receiving a bachelor's degree, go to a school with a better reputation.
