John Paul the Great Catholic University Reviews
The only reason I gave this a 4 star and not 5 is that the school is still new and getting fully established. In 3-5 years I believe it will be the well run machine that it's been intended to be from the start. So long as ambitious, faith filled, & hard working students are filling the seats in the years to come, I really believe this school will be unstoppable. Their mission statement "Impact Culture For Christ" is great, and while the school may be still newer, by going here you join a community driven to a cause worth rallying behind.
In terms of "nepotism" here, I never experienced it.
