Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The law school does a tremendous job fostering a collaborative student body while maintaining a competitive environment. However, the placement office could bolster the diversity of symplicity listings.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida State University (Law) is a great program. The professors, placement office, and the deans are accessible and always eager to offer help and advice . The student body is pleasantly diverse, lively, and respectful but also has a healthy dose of competition.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The FSU College of Medicine is very student friendly and centered. There is great support for myself and my colleagues to help us succeed in this stressful environment. We are still a new program and still working on improving the curriculum and leadership, but I think this school's mission will be the future model of medical education.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

There are many pros to this graduate program such the availability of professors, cost of education, campus life, as well as access to other resources. Some of the cons I have encounters are not really associated with the graduate program directly but are related to the cost of living expenses.

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program is that it is very specific to what I want to do. Transportation around Tallahassee is pretty good, and the bus system is free to FSU students. The teachers are knowledgable, and although it is a very hard program, I am learning a lot. The cons are that it wasn't as hands-on as I was expecting, at least not yet. I have been disappointed with the "practicum" class which should be the most applicable to my learning, but we were just cleaning the gym most of the time - not training the athletes like we should have been.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Most of the faculty is very good and open to working with you and helping you with your experiments. However there are certain politics within the faculty that can make it difficult to feel very comfortable around some professors, and the fact that the programs are separated between Biology, Biomedical and Psychology departments can leave a feeling of isolation among the three. That being said there are many funding opportunities in all three departments and even sponsors within the program. There are MANY core facilities available for use. The classes often feel a bit useless, but I think that is a common feeling of graduate students getting a Ph.D in research. Tallahassee itself is a bit of a cultural wasteland. If you are able to find a niche for yourself, such as an interest in nature or are self-motivated to find communities for singing, dancing, kickboxing, rock climbing, etc, it is easy to become socially isolated among the undergraduate scene. Of course that is true for any place--but I really wouldn't consider Tallahassee as a very interesting place for people entering their mid-twenties or early thirties. Unless you are hardcore about doing research!

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

A fairly competitive graduate program that is supported generaly well by both department and faculty. Students are given a large degree of responsibility in the creation and management or their graduade career. Most graduate students are funded through fellowships or teaching assistantships, additional funding for research is available and highly competitive. Overall I think any potential graduate student should serously consider FSU if their academic or research interests align with any of the faculty here, you will not be disappointed. (Allthough the Tallahassee area could have more to offer!).
