Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2015

When faced with the opportunity to pursue a graduate school level degree from the Florida State University, my emotions were immediately of excitement, and then followed by determination. A graduate school level degree from any university is tough, but when attending a university such as FSU, one enters the program with the belief that not only the course of study will be tough, but also with the realization that upon being accepted, a battle has already been won by that student. Since being accepted there has been one thing that I would consider a "con" so far in my experience. That one thing would be attempting to pay the tuition. If fortunate enough to receive any form of scholarship aid, I would be grateful in that I could focus my full attention on my studies rather than the vast amount in bills I am already accumulating.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Great campus life, and facilities. Lots of resources available for study and the school has a top notch career center. Teachers are passionate about their subjects and wish to develop a strong relationship with students Cons: As far as the Asian Studies program, its rather small. Because there are no mandatory classes finding a class that fits within the major is a hassle. Also the amount of teachers continues to shrink making it difficult to manage classes.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program covers all of your bases and is very educational. The problem though, as with most graduate programs, is that it is very expensive and there are not many resources to assist with the payment.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Pro of my program is that I was able to take all my classes online and at a flexible schedule. The con is that most of my communication was done vie e-mail and the staff tends to take 3-4 days until they responded.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2013

This program is great! I heard it was good from others, but it wasn't until I was accepted into the program that I actually experienced it for myself.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

Florida State is an excellent graduate school. The opportunities of educational care and support are endless. Everything I need to be successful as a graduate student is all there. The programs are geared toward practical experience and excellence. The professors are accessible, flexible, and willing to help. Also, there are a plethora of resources available whether it's academic, social, or financial. There is the career center, the wellness center, the gym, the technology room, and plenty of restaurants and university services available. These are just a few perks that makes the quality of education even better. Overall, I give my school's graduate program a 10!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Program at Florida State University is committed to providing their students with clinical experiences and learning opportunities to prepare them for their future careers as speech therapists. They try their best to provide financial aid to as many students as they can.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Knowing the grad school costs a great deal, the financial aid office should have been able to help much more with obtaining scholarships and the like since I was an undergraduate at the same school. However, I love the faculty; they are very kind and quick to respond. I was concerned about my deadline to apply, but the admissions and faculty were all very patient with my concerns.
