Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

The Education Policy program is very small. That means you have the same professors for required courses generally more than once. That can be great if you are in sync with the professor but it may not always work out that way. Before committing, I suggest sitting in on a class with one or more faculty. The program faculty are generally very accessible and supportive. Methods faculty mentoring doctoral students are less accessible given their heavy doctoral student advising loads. The program faculty are really good about helping students network and access high quality internships, contract work, and future career opportunities. I see this as a big plus for the program.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

The math department is very passionate on research, and there is plenty of support given by the professors. The only cons I see are some professors care more about their own accomplishments than the students, and don't give much thought into teaching in better methods. However there are others that outweigh them, that are great teachers and do care.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The location of the campus is great since it is right in the middle of Washington, D.C. The location allows you to intern or work at many prestigious institutions or at the headquarters of various organizations. Though it may be costly to live in the city proper, D.C. always has something going on, there is always something to do. The Elliott School is well known in the area and it has a great program in International Trade definitely worth checking out.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I am in my third year of a PhD in political science. I love the department, in particular the sense of collegiality. Professors are very supportive and accessible. That being said, getting in to academia is tough so I worry about what will happen once I finish. But the program seems to be doing its best to prepare us!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Great access to top D.C. leaders and professors. Classes are challenging but well worth it. Classes are also very applicable to real life scenarios. Skills are stressed over theories.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Good all around, its expensive, jovial, safe, wondrous, faculty and staff (professors) have real world experience or are accomplished researchers, but not as accessible as i'd like. Financial aid is a drag and since I have had to take out loans, my education is worth it, but the general feeling regarding the economy and job prospects is grim. The quality of the education is good, but there is too much competition or too much egoism flying around. The environment aesthetically, culturally, professionally, and tranquility is good as well. A large support network exists, much doing is encouraged, much effort required.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

My Grad program is great because there is a large emphasis on Community service and helping others through healthcare. Unfortunately, the program is extremely expensive. It is also often difficult because we are in class for 6-8 hours consecutively, and there are no windows in the hospital.
