Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

One large con is that no Master's students are eligible for financial aid, which leaves many students extremely financially strained.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The Biotechnology program at Brown University is top notch. Being able to work with so many wonderful faculty has really enlightened me to the possibilities of science. All of my peers are really friendly and cool. The facilities are superb. Providence is an amazing town to live in. All in all, I have no complaints and only love of my school.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Brown University offers an incredible education and opportunity to students to survive and make a difference in the real world. The unfortunate part in this is that the lack of financial aid options makes obtaining a degree from this university something only left to dream about. The trade off of cost vs the importance of a degree from Brown can be very overwhelming.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

The people are so friendly that I felt right at home. The environment is collaborative rather than competitive. The faculty are extremely knowledgeable about their subject matter and how it relates to other areas, and are always willing to talk to students or answer questions. The staff at the math department are extremely friendly and helpful, making everything really easy and accessible. The only downside I have ever found is that the environment does not put a lot of pressure on you to work really really hard.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Brown University provides many resources for its students. They teach public health by doing public health such as conducting and writing you own journal manuscript. The staff and teachers are very supportive and helpful.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

One of the major pros of this particular graduate program includes the small size of the program. The student to faulty ratio is outstanding, thereby giving students ample opportunities to access individualized help of professors. Professors in the solid mechanics program are all very renown in their fields of expertise. More than anything, the willingness of professors to help individuals surpasses those of any other professors at other schools i've attended.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

The program provides pretty comprehensive graduate education. I definitely did work outside the majority and didn't have a lot of guidance in my research. Our program focuses a lot on certain methods, and on regions of the world, at the expense of others - students who work beyond those are definitely at a disadvantage.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

There is a free environment to choose your advisor. Graduate courses are suitable for Phd to improve the ability of research. Industrial Partners Program (IPP) provides a great opportunity for Master. However, the department is small.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

The program provides pretty comprehensive graduate education. Although I wish I had more guidance in my research. The university seems to focus too much on certain regions of the world, at the expense of others - hence making students who work beyond the conventional regions, at a disadvantage.
