Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel a pro to my graduate program is the amount of real-life and classroom experience that the professors have. The program is also very diverse, with a plethora of study abroad opportunities. A con is that the career development website isn't as strong as it could be, and it's often hard to find a job if you don't have specific industry experience, even though the school is located in the hotspot of Miami. I think that attending the school should hold a lot more clout with potential employers.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: it is a commuter school. You are bound to meet people from all walks of life, from working professionals trying to get their 2nd masters degree, to the research oriented 23 year old, to the newly arrived immigrant who is much smarter than you. Cons: It is a commuter school. FIU is everyone safe choice and almost everyone can get in after some effort. Therefore school spirit and pride is not a high as it could be.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

Being a graduate student attending Florida International University in preparation for Pharmacy School, I am aware of the various aspects of the campus' life. An example of a con is that FIU's campus has so many student organizations that it forces students to develop good time managing skills in order to participate in as many as they are interested in. A pro of my graduate school is the wide spectrum of diversity promoted on campus. It is very interesting to conduct surveys and stop to speak to other students because of the richness in opinions, backgrounds, ideas, and worldly atmosphere seen every day on campus.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program here is awesome, the professors understand that we also have lives outsie of school and the work load is moderate. The professors I've had have also been flexible and available for consulation and seem to care about their students.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

It's one of the best schools in the nation to study Linguistics or any other program which flourishes from an international perspective. It's location in Miami lends it a world-wide variety and influence. It really puts the international in "FIU." I chose it because it is one of the few FL universities with a good Linguistics program and even fewer nationwide with courses in historical linguistics.
