Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Online courses; quality of faculty; current information Cons: Expensive
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros of the program are getting to work with great faculty, who have deep passion and knowledge of the doxumentary film industry. Also, the courses are all hands-on, so I learned extensively how to use new, industry standard equipment to film compelling stories. The con is not getting enough financial aid.

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Physical Therapy is the most competitive field to get in to right now, Chapman University knows that and makes a huge effort to support us and show us that our hard work is appreciated. The faculty is excellent, they are always available to enhance the student's experience and assist in learning via email or in person. Although the workload is strenuous, the upper class men of the DPT program are very encouraging and make time for social events with everyone. I am extremely happy to be here and I feel especially fortunate to be able to pursue my dream career in such a beautiful part of the country. Orange County is the most beautiful place I have ever lived and I feel happy to wake up here every day because the quality of life is exceptional.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program are that the professors are great educators who are very knowledgeable and always willing to assist and support the students. There is a lot of work but it is all reasonable and I feel more prepared to go out into the education work field. My program also made sure we received all the resources needed to pass state tests and other requirements. I passed every state test and TPA task on the first try. The only con of my graduate program is that it is a lot more expensive than state schools (since it is a private university). But I do feel I received a higher quality of education.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

The school offers a lot of scholarship money to those who did well in undergrad and on the LSAT. The school also makes it manageable to keep the scholarship going into the next year. The school's ranking has progressively gone up every year. Partly because the school has one of the best bar passage rates in CA. The faculty is also great, many come from real world experience or from teaching at other top tier schools. The only issue is the name recognition is not quite there yet, making job opportunities a little harder. But if a student buts an effort into networking it seems possible to get a decent starting job after graduation.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2017

The pro is that I get to network with students,distinguished faculty, and filmmakers of Hollywood. The con is the tuition of going to the graduate program.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The program has an extremely small cohort and very extensive supervision and support which allows students to receive constant feedback and provides a great learning environment. One of the cons is that the program is on the more expensive side but the cost can be justified by the quality of education.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

The pro of being a film student in Chapman is the great film resources and networking opportunities with faculty, students, alumni, and associates of the college. The con is the expense and fees of the classes.
