I have loved my time at Our Lady of the Lake University. The faculty have extensive experience and knowledge. The university has an associated training center for psychologists and therapists in training. They also have a beautiful and calm campus. The campus is in a historically impoverished neighborhood. However, this fits the social justice principles of the Catholic university. I would recommend this school to my loved ones. Tuition is very high and financial aid is low given it is a private school. I strongly advice financial planning and preparation to ensure you can pay tuition and complete your program.
Review Our Lady of the Lake University
The online Msw program is very high for what and how the professors teach. During my internship the professors were highly unprofessional, cancelling on important Skype meetings at the last minute through a text message, calling my someone else's name. My aid and class schedule got messed up during my internship to a point where I was getting harassing calls and text all hours of the day. Now that I transferred to a different msw program I am having a difficult time with receiving my internship contact and elevation so I can receive credit for it. Very unprofessional.
I have visited with OLLU and they were very helpful and inviting, I enjoyed the campus tour a the help Priscilla Elizondo gave, she was very helpful and answered all my questions even the uncomfortable ones. The interior of the building even though they are old they were very nice and well maintained. The young girl that gave me the tour of the campus provided some interesting facts about the school and the grounds. Over all my experience with the school has been great.
