Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely LOVE IU McKinney School of Law. Choosing to attend law school here was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Indianapolis is vibrant, exciting, and quickly expanding. The legal job market is great and the experiences are plentiful. You are steps from big law firms, government and TONS of possibilities. The professors care about your success, as does the administration and alumni. I couldn't imagine being anywhere else!

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

The biology graduate program at Indiana University-Purdue University of Fort Wayne is an excellent program with a variety of classes for a wide range of interests. Classes include subjects in ecology, molecular biology, and conservation biology. The staff are well-known for their study interests and are easy accessible. The biology department feels like a second family that is always there for advice and guidance for whatever questions students may have. Being involved in research is a plus and very beneficial to the students.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Special Education Graduate Program is directed by and taught by professional teachers already in the field. Classes are pertinent to my current teaching job and I feel that I am a better educator because of this program. The downside of the program is that some of the classes I need are not offered at the time I need them.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

The graduate program isn't very large at IPFW, therefore, courses taken were mixed with undergraduates. Instead of professors tailoring the course to the graduate level, they did the exact opposite. I didn't really feel challenged at all, so I was able to maintain good academic standing while not putting in too much effort. I don't think I left the program feeling any better as a researcher than I did coming in, considering having no previous research experience. The individuality of the program is unique in that your advisor lets you focus on a research area of your own interest, rather than the advisors. However, with that, students may struggle if the work is out of their advisor's area of expertise. Overall, I did enjoy my time at IPFW, but I felt to some extent that my degree wasn't earned compared to other students in graduate school.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The tuition costs of attending IPFW were the main reason for attending as I had taken my undergraduate classes here and I was paying for my MBA. Overall the workload and class difficulty seemed very similar to the undergraduate level. The reading and case studies are really the only difference. I have had many other groups members share these same thoughts with me. I would rank many of the professors as average. There are 3-4 that are really good and push students to think and are not just there to collect a paycheck.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The programs can be tailored to fit into your schedule. As a working professional it is really nice to be able to continue to work and be able to go to school. The downside is the financial aid office does not seem to be geared towards graduate students and many of the opportunities such as work co-op are not offered for graduate students. Being that it is a small campus there are not many positions available for graduate assistants.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The Counselor Education--School Counseling Program at IPFW is well established and encourages students to develop into dedicated and competent school counselors. The cohort program allows students to work part-time while obtaining their education. Instructors are well-educated and open to working with students outside the classroom. My education thus far has encouraged me to promote school counseling as a profession through professional development activities.
