Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

In my opinion the pros of graduate school is that it helps contribute to enhancing your educational background within your field of choice with room for growth and development within your career. Additional pro of graduate school is that it be a stepping stone to starting a new career path. Another pro of graduate school is that it can contribute to promotions/advancements within your current company based on the additional knowledge you will obtain in the program. Final pro of graduate it can help prepare you for your career as if you were in that particular work environment through interns, trainings ,work shops, and actual hands on activities. I think the only the main con for graduate school would be time management, majority of the time graduate students are full time workers who have a busy prior to even considering school. It can hard to balance all of your daily tasks and adding school on top of that. The second con I think in graduate school would be the actual assignments they are a lot more advanced, but on a graduate learning level you should be able to provided more complex answers and be prepared for a larger amount of work flow anyway. Those are my main pros and cons of graduate schools overall I wouldn't change anything about my experience so far I am doing it to better myself.I never really came from of a lot of money and my main focus and motivation for myself is to be most successful woman I can be and know that I accomplished one of my major life goals for myself.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Coming from a PWI to an HBCU, it was a completely different world. I did not feel as though I was a part of a graduate program, rather I felt as though I had been sent back to High School. The instructors showed no interest in being there neither did they care to take control of their classes. The course work was not challenging in the least bit. One course I had, the instructor had questions that related to personal experiences rather than information taught in the class on our midterm. They did not use the textbooks hardly ever but they required us to purchase them. Financial aid was not the least bit friendly let alone helpful. The undergraduate experience must be a lot better than the graduate experience, but I would not recommend their graduate program to my worst enemy.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013

The program is good if you want to be certified to teach in the state of Alabama quickly. It is not a very demanding program. Most of the professors are understanding that the graduate students have day jobs and families. They really work with you as you matriculate through the program. The downfall is that textbooks are not used as much as they should be. The level of excellence is not set very high, therefore poor students can go by without learning much.
