Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

FIU Law is a great law school. Although it is a rather new institution compared to most law schools, the faculty, career office and the overall administration has made it a great environment for learning. My favorite part about FIU Law that sold me when I was considering what law school to attend was the small class size. With only about 130 students in my class, the intimate environment has made it easier to become personal with the professors, other faculty and even the Dean, who is extremely approachable and truly cares about the law students. The career office is also great, and genuinely cares for the students to become successful. In addition, FIU is not expensive compared to other law schools, which will really help me financially once I graduate. Overall, FIU has managed to jump ranking spots significantly every year and in only 13 years we are ranked in the Top 100. I am a very proud to be an FIU Law student.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate level international relations program at FIU is home to some of the most well known thinkers in IR theory and security studies. The professors are always available to help students and the department is always willing to work with students in need of financial assistance. The only con towards the university is the general cost of living in Miami which is much higher than most other cities.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I've always been interested in helping others overcome their obstacles and unfortunate situations in life. The Counselor Education program will help me do just that. The courses are very interesting and I hope to learn a lot on this new journey.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I lived off the campus and have a remote opinion about it. Workload could be more intense in my opinion. Few professors are not very dedicated, but the majority are great.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Great for any parent pursuing a masters. The courses are taught by directors and even vice-presidents of education or student affairs. The classes are typically small so you can to know everyone. The work load is not overbearing. Cons: The classes tend to fill up very quickly so you may need to re-plan your schedule often.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program has helped build a strong foundation and understanding of the legal system and as I continue to pursue this program, I realize how lucky I am to be a part of it. My professors are very knowledgeable and they are ready to share this wealth with their students. As a new law school, FIU still has to establish a great reputation in the legal community. However, with the hard work that the students and staff are putting in, FIU will be able to earn an amazing reputation.
