An absolutely impeccable program with such a strong focus on the individual student. Class sizes are very small, which leads to individualized instruction and a great deal of rapport being built between faculty and students. I feel truly blessed to have experienced such a rewarding program that has given me the tools to succeed in my social work career.

Incredible faculty, incredible staff. This program really prepares students to continue their education in graduate programs or professional schools. The Biomedical Sciences program at Barry University caters to those who need a little extra something for their application to medical and dental school. I am confident when I say that, without the Barry BMS program, I would not be such a competitive medical school applicant.

This is an example of responses I received from a professor when asking for clarification on an assignment . Please correct me if I'm wrong but NOWHERE in that rubic am I asking about what plane that muscles its in. Emergency occurred out of my control and teacher responded this way- I understand that s*** happens....but it happens everyday. Spend 4,000 dollars to be critiqued harshly by a professor that was not helpful. Will not be continuing at school . I wish I invested my money else where . Was promised an environment where teachers cared about students yet when I asked for help I was belittled. Did not get to experience the positive teacher to student relationship they pride themselves on . If you are looking for a school that will help you grow and build strong educational relationships with your professor this is not the school for you .

Barry's BMS program is probably one of the biggest reasons for my success in getting into dental school. While there are many various programs out there to help prepare students for medical/dental school, Barry's is unique in its ability to bring out the best in each student, and giving personalized attention to each student. All the faculty are greatly knowledgeable and make an active effort to build relationships with students and help them succeed in the courses. They want so see the students succeed and become better versions of themselves, and thus will push you to do so. While the program is in no way easy, there are a vast number of resources available through which you can truly build your path to success. The administrative staff are there to guide you through every step of the way, from class related planning to dental application help and prep; from words of encouragement yet being realistic. I would highly encourage anyone looking for a bridge masters program like this to apply. You won't regret it.

Barry University through its PACE program gives you the freedom to take classes at your own pace. It's a good fit for working adults with a family. Since being at Barry University, the insight of the professors have been tremendous, they are always willing to help whenever possible.

I was so excited to attend Barry for my MSW, but I was disappointed in the lack of communication and unprofessionalism that was allowed in classes. The field office was very unprofessional and rude. It seemed like some people in the office just wanted power. Majority of non teachers seemed to just care about power not actual students. I was so disappointed that some of my professors allowed students to show up late to class almost every class without consequences. It was always the same few students who showed up late to almost every class. On a plus side I have to say the quality of my education was probably a 8/10 stars. I loved that Barry was such a faced paced program which worked out wonderfully for me. The environment of the school itself is also great. I would recommend Barry but I hope changes can be made to make it a all around better program.

Enrolling in the Master's Program at Barry University was the best decision I ever made. The administration definitely cares for each and every student in the program and will go above and beyond to help you reach your goals. If you are extremely focused, dedicated and utilize the MANY opportunities to build yourself as an applicant for professional school, you will definitely be successful.

Barry's Biomedical Sciences Masters program has been the best decision I made for my future. This program gave me the opportunity to continue on to dental school. I feel confident that I will be more than prepared for my dental program. Also the student community is extremely important and at Barry there was always somebody willing to help. Would highly recommend this program !

There are many masters and bridge programs that are geared towards preparing students for medical or dental school, but I believe that I made the right decision to attend Barry's BMS program. Every aspect of the program is designed for you to succeed, from the curriculum to the supportive faculty. I attended one of the largest Universities in the country and I easily became just a number throughout my undergrad. When I started the BMS program, I was surprised to see the small class sizes and how the professors actually cared about developing a relationship with their students. What I loved most about this program however, is how it has helped me realize my potential and achieve goals I never thought I could. I've become a better student by attaining efficient study habits, discipline, and critical thinking skills, which will all have an impact in medical school. It is a challenging program but the benefits are priceless and attending was the best decision I have ever made.

Attending Barry University's Biomedical Science Masters program has been one of the best decisions that I have made. Not only has this program helped me improve academically, but it is also a great way to prepare yourself for the rigorous coursework of dental school or med school. The faculty and staff are very helpful and are easily available. They give you the tools that you need to have success not only academically but also in your application process. I recommend this program to everyone who is looking to further their academic career through a masters program.
