Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Academic competitiveness - medium because I was able to get in with mediocre GRE scores (but I do have a 3.9 GPA, research, internships, and club involvement) Affordability of living -- Tempe, AZ has very affordable near-campus apartments/condos Campus safety -- very safe! Career support -- N/A for me because I've just started school here Education quality-- we have distinguished faculty in the physics and MSE department, especially if you are interested in electron microscopy Faculty accessibility and support -- lots of office hours and easy to get help if you need it (not just from the TAs) School use of tech -- not sure how to answer this, but I have a free subscription to Matlab and Mathematica, so that is good Social life -- research groups are tight knit and often have social gatherings Student diversity -- good! Surrounding area -- Mill ave. has great food and bars, close to Old Town Scottsdale and many hiking spots Financial aid -- full ride if you have competitive application Grad program value -- very high because affordability and quality of education; there are also a lot of industry ties since Phoenix is a "mini silicon valley" Workload -- high, but this is a good thing because you are getting a high-value education that will develop the skills you'll need to conduct your own research and/or coordinate projects and development in industry

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The Educational Policy & Evaluation PhD program at ASU is incredibly rigorous, challenging, and exciting. Throughout the past year and a half, I have completed research with a variety of professors throughout the University and I have presented our research at many academic conferences. You are truly completing new and pioneering research when you study at ASU. Your professors care about you, are accessible, and want you to succeed.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

There are few electromagnetics professors, so high-level EM classes are not offered on a highly regular basis.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: This program will make you really prepared in the field of ABA, and the professors are really great Con The work load is too much at times, and it can be financially hard to get to places when you do not have a car

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Very affordable online program. Workload is very manageable with a full time job. It isn't the highest caliber of program, but for working adults looking to fit an advanced degree around busy work and home schedules at a great price, this is a great fit.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate program is that I have the added flexibility of taking my courses online. Online courses allow me to spend time with my family as well as complete my homework on my terms. Granted there are deadlines one would need to meet; however, it is nice to have time for life outside of school. The cons of graduate school is contemplating on whether it is worthwhile to go through the added stress of completing it. My undergrad experience at a different school was more organized and engaging. ASU is totally different. Even though it is online our semesters are broken down as if we are completing the courses on campus. From what I have experienced most online programs are more flexible and allow the student to take one course at a time to absorb the information they are learning. ASU makes students take multiple courses.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

As a Business Analysis M.s student, it is challenging to afford the tuition and text books required to get through the next two years of my professional development. I'm grateful to Graduate Programs for being so supportive.
