Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2014

Courses so far have been great online. There is a great deal of work but it has been manageable provided that you budget your time wisely.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a wonderful program for full-time students. The program is small, enabling students to form connections with one another that will serve them throughout the program and in the future. The faculty is knowledgeable and has made Boston University's Deaf Education program well-known in producing quality Deaf educators.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I would highly recommend this program. The faculty members are all very helpful and approachable. They really care about helping students to understand the class material and to succeed in the program. I feel that I learned a lot during my two years at Boston University and that the Medical Sciences program really helped me to stand out during the application process to further education.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Boston University's Psychology Department is highly rated, high achieving, and extremely ambitious. This school has offered everything I have wanted and needed to advance my career in global mental health awareness. At BU I can work towards my ultimate goal of bringing mental health awareness to youth around the world, who usually go unheard. The faculty and staff that are working in this field have thus far been helpful, knowledgeable, and motivational leaders in my life. There is no better school nor graduate program for me than what is offered at Boston University. The only drawback is that the Masters Program does not offer financial assistance to its students. Because Boston University is a private school it is costly, to say the least, to attend. I am already in debit due to past education costs. In addition to my struggle since my parents have gone through a very difficult and messy divorce I do not have the luxury of obtaining a co-signer on any credit based loans to help towards tuition and living costs. This opportunity for some extra money would greatly help me. Without it, I will be unable to start in the Fall and will remain living at home, searching for a job that could be a career, and hoping for the best.

I have not started school yet so I do not have any pros and cons about my graduate program as of now.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The lack of diversity is the biggest blaring con to this program. The expected level of academic ability is high, which is a good consistency to present to future employers or other peers.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The Physical Therapy program at Boston University is very challenging and requires many hours of studying. The labs and classes also take up many hours, so I found difficulty juggling social life with academic life. However, it is DEFINITELY worth it! The professors are amazing, and they include many top physical therapists in the country. I am very proud to be in this program.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

I recently graduated from the Masters in Medical Sciences program. I came in as a prospective medical student who's college GPA wasn't competitive enough to apply. In the MAMS program, we took actual medical school classes to simulate the med school work load and prove that we were capable of performing at that level. The support from faculty in the program was incredible. Everyone wanted to help you and they all were very knowledgeable on the various requirements of different medical schools. The ultimate metric for the strength of a program like this though is the medical/dental school acceptance rate. Although I cannot speak to the overall numbers for the class, I can say that out of a group of about 20 close friends of mine, 19 of us are going to medical or dental school next year, many at top tier institutions. I cannot speak highly enough about this program and would recommend it to anyone who has doubts about the strength of their current med school application.
