Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently pursuing a Master's of Public Health degree from Boston University. This program offers an incredible opportunity for experience & knowledge gain. The faculty are the best I've ever experienced; they're all highly regarded in their respective fields and do all that they can to help their students. Outside of the classroom, BUSPH, while located in Boston, provides an incredible amount of opportunity for gaining experience. Completion of the degree requires that students partake in a practicum, which is very easy to come by in this hub for public health. I am so happy that I decided to apply to BU, and that they accepted me! The best decision I have made in my life to date. BUSPH is an awesome program, however, it's very expensive. GraduatePrograms.com offers an incredible amount of information for curious people interested in graduate programs. A scholarship from this fantastic tool would greatly help my financial needs while continuing to remind me the well-rounded support they provide graduate students!

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I had to rank items that I did not experience first hand, since I am an online student. I am a student in the Metropolitan College Master's of Computer Information Systems. So far, the program has been incredible. The accelerated pace is rather enjoyable, and the faculty members are top notch. I enjoy the support structure in the courses, and feel as if my success is a priority to all involved in the program.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the public health graduate program at Boston University! I am surrounds by impressive peers, and I know that I am receiving a great education. I am not only inspired by my courses, but challenged as well. The biggest downside of the program is the cost of living in the area, and the steep price of education.

The MPH program is an amazing opportunity filled with multiple components and the ability to customize your studies. The price however, is less than desirable.

BUSPH is a great program. There are a lot of resources available to students to help them achieve success. Additionally, teachers have an "open door" policy and go above and beyond to make themselves available to you when you need assistance. You can't beat Boston for a location! There is a lot to do and with all the hospitals in the area, the school is really on the cutting edge of new developments in the field of public health!

Good school, obviously the city location raises cost of living and housing. Professors are very accessible and helpful, really seem to want students to succeed.

Very excellent academic environment, faculty is renowned and extremely available after class hours. Social life of grad programs is a little lacking at Sargent College - very few school-hosted social events.

Degree: Nutrition

Top notch professors that make you feel like you go to a more intimate school. They're always excited about teaching, which rubs off on the students and makes the classroom environment enriching and fun. Administration is always quick to answer questions about financial aid, parking, transportation, etc. The only complaint is MBTA transportation, which can be extremely overcrowded and devastatingly slow in the mornings. Boston is an amazing setting for the university, and it invigorates the campus with energy and diversity. Course load has always been reasonable, but challenging, and always applicable to my future career goals.
