Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The Emory Neuroscience Program is great, the faculty are much more laid back than at other institutions I interviewed at, and they are super attentive and responsive to feedback from students--which often leads to real, concrete changes in the structure of the program. The culture and environment is one of immense collaboration that is hard to picture until you're here. The pay is better than other institutions but is still low (all grad student stipends are), but it's possible to live off of and have a social life. Overall I can't picture myself being happier in another graduate program anywhere.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Emory is one of the top programs in the country in this field and a degree from this program will help me be more competitive when it comes to applying for jobs. It is very rigorous training, but that is what makes a good program in this field of study.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

This was the right fit for me. I am in Global Health with a concentration in nutrition. I would like to develop programs and implement them in the field and Emory allows me to develop the skills needed for my career of choice. Although transportation in Atlanta isn't the best, it is a very affordable place to live with plenty of things to do. It is a larger graduate program, so I don't know my entire cohort, but there are numerous opportunities to network. Overall my experience has been positive.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I am extremely happy with my graduate program. The program is reasonably priced compared to other public health programs and goes above and beyond to provide students with the best possible education. I have found my courses to be a perfect balance of theory and application. Professors are approachable and really want students to succeed. The program requires 250+ hours of public health experience which allows students to practice what they learn in the classroom and helps students determine where they want to be after graduation. I feel that the combination of diverse courses offered and hands-on work experience prepares students for life beyond school. Plus, Atlanta is a great place to live!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is one of the most well regarded in the country. It combines in class technology and real time experience to further your education. The only downside is the Atlanta traffic and the expense of the private school.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2011

Emory is a wonderful academically, however the majority of the students in my graduating class had the same appearance, female mid 20's with light hair. Professors had great relationship with students who fit into Emory's ideal student but for those like me, African American and mid-aged, no support, no scholarships, no encouragement, poor clinical sites where as preferred students received ideal worksites. Even during lectures it was almost impossible for my opinion to be heard or considered. Every subjective document was carefully scrutinized and when I read the works of my preferred student colleagues I saw flaws that where not marked or considered and most received high 90-100s on submitted assignments throughout the program. Some even bragged about completing the assignment 2-3 days prior to the due date. My education is what I made from it because Emory forced me to, the lectures where excellent, but I found my own practice sites to gain the needed experience that I needed. I reviewed my own work, for flaws and true errors and I sought out my own information to learn health policy. The only true class that I felt was equitable was research.
