Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The Masters of Public Health Program at Emory is distinct for a wide array of reasons: (1) you are taught by public health professionals, many of whom are leading experts in their fields, e.g. one of my immediate advisors was cited in the original CDC report describing the initial observance of HIV infection in the United States, before the virus was named and identified. (2) Your role as an MPH student at Emory affords you access to careers at the CDC, the Carter Center, Emory hospital, and Grady Health system. (3) The courses are directly aimed to preparing students for work in the field of public health. (4) Emory is located in Atlanta, which is a great and affordable place for persons in their 20's to attend graduate school, while still having access to plenty of social activities. Since I have enrolled at Emory, I note how the program yields a very high return on investment, but the investment for the program is very pricey: (1) The cost of the degree is very expensive ($17,000+ per semester, not including living expenses, cost of books, computer etc.) (2) The nature of the degree program can be quite competitive, and it may be difficult to maintain a 4.0, with the rigor of the classes. (3) Student diversity, while high, is not entirely representative of all backgrounds/ethnicities.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Emory University graduate school of nursing is a well established and prestigious school. The education material is pertinent and the professors are very helpful. However, this is a very expensive graduate school to attend and there are not a lot of financial aid options provided.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

It's been a lot of work but I certainly learned a lot. I don't think the school runs as smoothly as it could but it's been a great experience people-wise. I honestly believe I've received a top-notch education here at Emory. My biggest complaint would probably be the building but that's a pretty big problem to fix so I can't complain that much. Otherwise I love it.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2020

The most important thing for me to recognize in a graduate school are some of the "pros" I have mentioned; Emory University's Chemistry graduate program provides an exceptional education and network upon which I can build my future career in research and academia. The program is incredibly competitive, only 6-10% of applicants are accepted to the chemistry graduate program. This is for a good reason--the intimate environment that Emory provides is worth the risk of applying. Professors teach extremely small classes which breeds an environment where students can interact with each other, the professor, and sincerely learn to their highest capabilities. As an organic chemist and somebody who wishes to broaden and advance the field of chemistry (especially in novel ways of creating molecules) this kind of rigorous and influential learning environment (provided by professors who have almost all attended Ivy League universities) will provide me with the best tools possible to succeed and excel in my field.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The public health school at Emory is great if you find the right mentors, courses, and people. Overall, I had great mentors, however, many other students I knew were very dissatisfied with the classroom experience. There was too much busy work at times, professors that were not very invested in teaching, and a lack of critical discussion or skills focused learning in several departments and classes. I loved my department, Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, and felt like a peer with my professors, advisors, and mentors. However, the classes outside of my department were not very interesting and there were too many required courses to take. Great networking and job opportunities with organizations based in Atlanta such as CARE, CDC, American Cancer Society, The Carter Center, several consulting firms and non-profits, but many of the outside of the classroom experiences were more valuable. Overall though, great friends and peers at school and I would recommend the school but only for the epidemiology, behavioral sciences and health education, and health policy and management departments/tracks.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health is one of the best programs for public health. I'm excited to be a student at Emory and grateful that I have the chance to receive a first-rate public health education in my major of Global Environmental Health. Unfortunately, the costs of my Masters Degree are a large financial strain and the University has limited financial aid for public health students. This scholarship would be a very helpful contribution to my education and my training for my future career in public health.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The Emory University Rollins School of Public Health is the place to be if you're looking for a career in public health. With the CDC literally next door, you couldn't be in a better place as far as networking with the stars in the field is concerned. The professors are experts in their field and also extremely approachable and interested in working with students, and the classes are directly useful to your future career. Add to that, Atlanta has pretty perfect weather and is very affordable!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a valuable program with great resources, faculty, and quality education. Because it's private, expenses are a little high.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The good thing about this school is that it has the best anesthesiologist assistant program in the United States. The bad thing about this school is that it is more expensive than other schools!
