Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

MCB is a great graduate (PhD) program. The program includes PIs with a large variety of research interests. Courses are stimulating, and there is a lot of opportunity to present your work both on campus and at international meetings. The school has a very collaborative feel, and students and PIs from other labs are almost always willing to help you with your research (troubleshooting ideas, sharing reagents/machines, offering protocols). It can be grueling at times, but I feel very prepared going into the Pharma industry. My number one piece of advice would be to not be afraid to ask for help, people are very nice!

Tuck is a academically and culturally diverse community nestled in the heart of Dartmouth College's New England campus. Lovely classmates, globally focused curriculum, and first class education.

Great place to go to college. Fantastic faculty and staff.
1.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2010

Think about this degree before doing it. The school is top tier with fantastic resources but this is not a typical masters degree in that it is highly subjective with no real value. It is very expensive and the lack of a single focus student body leaves you without peers in your field. If you want a master's degree get a real one in a specific discipline or don't do it at all. Contrary to perception the reputation of the school doesn't really translate to this degree.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros include world class faculty and facilities, while cons (and not for everyone) include being isolated in rural New Hampshire.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Difficult place to come when you're single if you're hoping to meet a partner. Beautiful place to live though, and a friendly/supportive community within the school. Very collaborative, not competitive.

The approachability of faculty and the resources available are top notch. The professors and research staff are there to help you learn and grow into research scientists and teachers.
