Everyone is Tyler Simone here? So today on my channel, I wanted to do a video all about St John's because I was so man when I realized that no one does videos about St John's, like where the same John YouTubers at? Because I know I'm right here. So I just sent that over to St John's and I applied for early action to which the deadline is November 15th. I believe, Well, that's that's what it was for us. It might be different now if you're wondering, I'm gonna put all of St John's quick stats wishes like acceptance rate. I wouldn't get into the fun stuff that St John's has to offer, So I chose St John's because it made me feel comfortable when I went there, you know, the campus environment was very welcoming. I loved everything that St John's had to offer for me and for the career that I'm looking to dio, if you're wondering, I'm currently undecided, but I do know what I want. If you're wondering, I'm in the College of Professional Studies and basically St John's has a great pharmacy program. That's what they're really well known for because they actually have some sort of connection with the pharmacy. So if you are looking to be a business major, you cannot go wrong with going to St John's because it's right in your city. I'm not close to St John's, but I do live in a your ex. If you live in New York, I was F take advantage of going to St John's because not only do you get that away for school type feeling, but you also get more money like guys. It's great, so I would definitely say St John's is a good choice for me or for any New York student because you get more money. I would take, you know, extra quickly is very seriously. I would take, you know, be very up front in your resume. I think that was a reason of one of the reasons why I got into St John's. One thing that's important for St John's, because the St John's mission includes, you know, giving back. I think a big thing that they really installed in us at orientation was that, you know, we have to give back. So if you do a lot of community service, that looks really good for Saint John. So I would definitely recommend, you know, participating in a lot of community service activities. If you have a really, really topic in your life that you can run a lot about, that's what I would go for for my essay. I would go for something that's real to me because someone in admissions will read your essay and someone will be able to sympathize with you, and they'll be like, You know what? This student is gonna do great here, like I feel them. Or don't take someone else's idea or make something up right? Well, some yes, real to you, even though if it might not sound serious to you like it could really touched the one also for St John's. So if you're worried about paying for St John's, if you are interested in going, I would say still apply because although tuition is extremely expensive, it's 38,000 and room and board included with tuition is 57,000. St. John's offers a lot of loan opportunities and a lot of grids, and they give you scholarship money, so don't worry about it. I definitely recommend, you know, applying to a lot of outside scholarships. All they got was a scholarship from Saint Jobs, which was a blessing, but I could have got so much money, if I would have wrote more essay, so definitely do as many scholarship opportunities as you can because you won't regret one thing that I really loved about St John's I think is like why I chose a job. Like If you don't know St John's has campuses in Europe, I'm going to put them here, so I don't sound stupid because I don't remember all of them. So definitely take advantage of all the opportunity St John's offers, like they literally give you so many opportunities. You know, Naomi, and so definitely take advantage of the opportunity going into my freshman year. I'm definitely gonna get involved, because one thing like I said, they installing you at orientation is getting involved being, you know, the best. Everything I say John's perfect, But I do want to just, like, talk about some things that I really wasn't feeling a lot with St John's. Now, campus eyes is really big, But I didn't like the hills and every like the hills, and walking was crazy, like students who go there told us like, Listen, don't worry about freshman 15 because you won't get it here. Maybe you might love it, but if you're one of those people who, you know, I'm just not comfortable in the big campus, I would definitely go for a smaller school. I do want to let you know that they're gonna be a lot of parts of orientation, that you're gonna be fall asleep like it's honestly so boring because of all the seminars and sessions that you have to do and, you know, fire safety. Like, why St John's makes you take liberal arts courses? You know, what course would you have to take? You know how St John has built the history of the museum? It's like, so tiring. They're gonna help you, like and yourself up and Also, when you go to, like, eat for lunch and dinner like you're goingto have that break for, like, an hour or so, and you're gonna be able to, like, loosen up and you're not going to be shot. Like at first I was kind of really reserved and shy because I didn't know anyone. After a while, you just like, warm yourself up and it's really fine. I really love St John's, and I honestly haven't even started class yet. I really hope that this helps if you wanted to know a little bit of stuff about St John's or what the campus life it's like I'm gonna be having you guys follow me through my whole college experience with different cause, blocks and constant videos and Dorn tours and meet my roommate tags and stuff like that. So you guys will definitely get the feel of St John's.
