Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The school's workload is appropriately difficult and there is a lot of support available to students who are struggling with any of the topics. It is in a great location and the pass/fail system in the first two years allows for a significant reduction in the competition between students. The financial aid is extremely generous with a substantial middle income initiative and a reasonable base loan amount.

HMS is a diverse and exciting place to be a student; we have the opportunity to learn from the leaders in every field, and have access to wonderful networks and opportunities. We are around major hospitals, and receive training from them.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Very generous need based financial aid. Great support for students from faculty and staff. Endless opportunities for career advancement and networking. Cons: culture really emphasizes academic medicine and creates a strange pressure to do a lot of research. This is not necessarily a bad thing but I think it puts a little bit of unnecessary pressure on first year students, especially those without substantial research experience.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: High caliber faculty and students, great career services and resources, flexible course choices (can enroll in any Harvard course or cross-register at MIT and in one school at Tufts), flexible program (only 3 required areas-can build own program) Cons: Living in Boston/Cambridge is expensive! Financial aid does not necessarily cover difference between EFC and cost of attendance, even with loans included-expect to fill gap from outside sources.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

love this school! Pros: strong brand, great education, plenty of resources for almost any career path, and great student body cons: it's challenging to get the hang of the case study method and it's cold in Boston

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Harvard's top-notch faculty members lead engaging, detailed lectures that simplify complex topics. There are boundless opportunities to meet leading scholars, political leaders, entrepreneurs and social change agents both as students and as visiting speakers. To improve programming, professors could be more active about serving as mentors.
