I love this university. Besides the high costs, I do not see any cons.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently enrolled in an online MSN program and I am so happy I made this choice. While it does require you to be responsible and organized, having the flexibility to complete my courses from anywhere is wonderful. Also, because it is online, my classes have students from all over the world, living and working in their own states or countries, which provides an enormous range of perspectives you just can't get in a brick and mortar type class. The faculty are very open and engaging and the technology support is also very responsive. I highly recommend this program.

Degree: Social Sciences

Although Duke has been in the news for issues with racial tension, the education that I received is phenomenal. I am being formed in academic theology in a way that I will be able to change the conversations of culture and religion.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Duke University is, of course, one of the best in the country. My favorite aspect is the opportunity to work with and learn from faculty that are doing cutting edge research in their respective fields. The biggest con is the cost to attend, hence my application for this scholarship!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Currently ranked #6 in the nation, the Duke University MSN-NP program is challenging and rewarding. The curriculum involves various aspects of technology and provides various learning styles and activities. Faculty are very supportive, readily available, and have a true desire to see students succeed. The only con to a Duke degree is the cost to obtain one! Graduate school tuition and fees are hefty but the value of education and the name of the university are well worth the financial sacrifice.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The big pro for this program would be the situations that the students get put in. We are able to care for a large variety of patients and see some pretty complex cases that you may not be able to get otherwise. The con is the curriculum is new and as such it has many bugs that have yet to be worked out. The professors set up a theoretically good program, but it needs some refinement before it can live up to what its made out to be.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The Nicholas School of the Environment has a stellar reputation, exciting and relevant course offerings, and offers a wide range programs to meet students where they are at in life. The only downside is the high cost.
