Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University is a high quality school. The professors are knowledgeable and helpful. The staff is supportive and proactive in doing everything possible help students find employment after graduation. The dean is friendly and his passion for student success is great. The students in the school are extremely friendly and interactive with one another. The class that I am in is highly competitive because everyone does really well. Due to the grading curve, students who have been straight A students all of their lives can easily be B or C students in law school. However, this is probably true for most high quality law schools. The only thing that I think ASU can do a better job at is offering more scholarship money. Besides that, it is a great school with amazing programs, competitions, and opportunities to gain hands-on experience.

Graduation Year: 2016

I really do feel that the positive aspect of ASU is how involved they are with their students. They care about them, and they stay in contact, whether it be with games or just social campus activities happening every weekend. ASU really does care, and they do want you to do well academically as well--of course--which is why they allow this freedom for a study break. The libraries are very well equipped too. A negative aspect of ASU would have to be the area. It is kind of dangerous in Tempe, along with any city area at night, but other than that it is a great campus. You just have to be safe, applying to most places.

ASU excels on all fronts. I have open access to faculty, access to all of the technology I need, and total support in my work.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Graduate program in power and energy systems at ASU is one of the renowned program in US. The professors are the innovators in this field. The program has seminars every week wherein the experts from industries and professors from different universities present about current obstacles and relevant innovations. The placement after graduation is excellent.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel fortunate to be a part of ASU. I however am a little upset with the financial support I should have received being an International Student.

The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law was a wonderful institution. The faculty made themselves available and the curriculum has served me well in law practice. I loved law school!
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros - > The faculty are renowned in their field of expertise, > The classes are stimulating and challenging > The graduate life has a good feel - very academic and intellectually stimulating > The surrounding area is wonderful - Phoenix is a blast with lots to do > The graduate climate is NOT competitive - if you are competitive you are shunned. Cons - > Classes are CHALLENGING - get ready. > Assignments in classes are sometimes unnecessary and do not have any value toward career progress (e.g., taking mid-terms and finals - who does that in a graduate program?) > While the graduate climate is fun, graduate students do not often hangout together outside of school (you have 3 to 4 close friends) > As with any graduate program, money is tight - but this is expected with the territory.

I liked the program as a whole. It helped me advance my career.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

When I attended Arizona State University, I was seeking teacher certification. The pros of the program stem from the fact that the program offered was accelerated. Soon after I graduated, I obtained employment through a job fair provided by the university. They did an amazing job of walking me through the necessary steps required in order for me to enter my career. Though I felt well prepared, education is forever changing. When I exited the program, there was a significant need for supplemental education in order to prepare me for my career. Overall, Arizona State University gave me the direction I needed to move forward in my career.
