I am excited to begin medical school this August 2014. I hope to become a pediatric neurologist and treat children with neurological disorders such as epilepsy. IUSM is a great place, and I'm privileged to be a part of their 2018 class.

This program is great for helping students transition from undergrad into graduate school. It also prepares students for medical school.

The program is very challenging and thorough. The students are prepared for real-world challenges and are taught to approach them in a confident manner. The faculty could be more available for support.

I felt prepared to be a better educator throughout the program. As a result of the education I received, I have a better understanding of students. This has helped me to become a highly sought after asset. I owe much of my success to IUPUI!

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

My specific program is Pathology Assisting. It is a very small group of people that care about your success and prepare you well for your future career. My professors have been excellent and truly care about our success both as students and individuals. The courses have been challenging and I feel they have been sufficiently preparing us for our board examination. I am thankful to be a part of such a great graduate program.

IUPUI's graduate Museum Studies program has a lot to offer. The program focuses on hands-on community learning with just the right amount of theory to supplement. The classes span a wide breadth of the museum world, so you will come out ready to take on any task. There is also the opportunity to specialize in whatever aspect interests you most. The instructors are all very knowledgeable, most working in museums and teaching at the same time, and they are always willing to give you their time. Another plus for this program is the location. Indianapolis is home to many museums so there is plenty of opportunity for work, internships, and volunteering. The only real issue I have with this program is the lack of funding. They are a relatively new program and have yet to establish the kind of funding needed to help students cover the cost of tuition. The good news is that this is one of the least expensive museum studies programs out there, so even without the extra funding, it can still be pretty affordable. Overall, I'm 100% satisfied with choosing IUPUI's Museum Studies program for graduate education.

The pros of the graduate program are the flexibility of the classes and the great source of networking. The downside is the cost of classes, the commuting to campus when the course is listed as "online", and the expectation that students shouldn't be working during school.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Love the small community feel and the opportunities that Indianapolis provides us as students. Our Office of Professional Development might be the best in the state, if not, the best in the country. These people bring in professionals to educate us for the "real world" and they are always posting job and internship opportunities for us students. The only complaint I would have is that the parking is awful and there isn't really "campus housing". Plus, the professors are evaluated BEFORE the exam, when I think they should be evaluated after the exam to give students the ability to leave feedback on the delivery of exams and/or the material. Overall, I would definitely recommend this school for aspiring lawyers.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty will help with absolutely anything that they are able to. It is a small program so everybody gets to know each other quickly and will help with everything they can. Sometimes with so few students in the program it is hard to get a variety of classes but the advisor is more than happy to accommodate in any way possible.
