Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

I wish there were more collaborations with the other graduate programs here. We are at the opposite end of campus away from most other graduate schools. However, since our program is in the city, we do have more social opportunities and with other professionals.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The MPA will enhance my work experience and educational qualifications of MD and MPH with a better understanding of public policy, leadership and governance issues. It will help me work towards poverty alleviation through better global health.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I am currently a first year graduate student at Temple University. I just found out that I have been admitted to master of education program in human development and psychology at Harvard for full-time study for the 2013-2014 academic year. There are many pros for transferring to Harvard, most importantly, the incomparable quality of education. The only major con about Harvard is the high cost of tuition. I plan to transfer to Harvard in fall if I can find the funding to make it possible.

There are tremendous availability of learning sources and assistance in the learning process. classes are challenging and interesting. Professors and TFs are always available for help. The workload is huge and sometimes is a bit stressful.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros is a high quality education and wonderful networking opportunities. Living in Boston is great lots of museums and historical sites to see. The cons are how expensive Boston is to live.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The rigorous education and the dynamic professors that are at my university stand as the greatest benefits of my program. Knowing I have the support of staff and faculty, who will go to great lengths to assist me in solidifying my future career, is an unparalleled experience. Minus the inadequate transportation of the city of Boston and the egregious cost of graduate school, I can say with certainty that I chose the right program for me.

The students are the school's most valuable asset - we challenge each other and support one another, ensuring advancement in our own studies. Everyday is a learning experience.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Professors are very brilliant and passionate about what they teach. The learning atmosphere there is one of a kind. The student-professor combination makes for great learning and discussions. The only con I can think of was that too many students wanted to participate in discussions.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: incredible network, outstanding guest speakers, dynamic student body, great social life. Cons: case method is difficult for more tactical courses (finance, technology and operations management), being on the other side of the river as the rest of Harvard gives it a somewhat isolating feeling (but the size of the student body mitigates this con).
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Global MBA brand, access to exclusive recruiting opportunities, method of instruction helpful to broaden the mind. Cons: Method of instruction not effective for technical courses like finance/ operations, cohort too large to foster community feeling.
