Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a new attending student in FIU. So far, the financial aid and admission staffs are very supportive and helpful. The graduate nursing program is quite well known in the local area. Student diversity which I checked it online, it is about 61 % of students are Hispanics. So interesting.

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The advantage of the graduate program is that it a makes me more competitive in the workforce market. The disadvantage is that it is expensive and may not get a suitable job right after graduating.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program at Florida International University is fantastic. Its highly competitive within the design studio and the professors are or have been part of the surrounding firms in Miami so it is easy to make connections before you graduate. The classes are rigorous and you work at a fast pace. The only cons of the program is the rigidity of it and doesn't allow you to take any courses outside of architecture in your beginning freshman years and little time for on campus activities.

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.
