Degree: Taxation
Graduation Year: 2015

The MST program is one of a kind in this state. It offers me a competitive edge in my future career goals.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The fully online program option is amazing and one of the main reasons I chose IUPUI. It allows me to work as an associate librarian in Illinois while still completing my Master's degree in Library Science. They are also ALA accredited, which is an absolute necessity if one wants to get a full-time job after graduate school. One thing I found annoying, however, is their policy on living in Indiana for 12 months before receiving in-state tuition. I cannot afford to be a full time student as planned for two more semesters due to that rule, even though I proved I did not move to Indiana to receive in-state tuition. The registrar's office was very helpful in figuring finances out though.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Indiana University School of Medicine is the second largest medical school in the country. This has some benefits and some negatives. I will state, that for 1st and 2nd year, students are located in any one of the 9 campuses throughout the state of Indiana. I do not think that where you are located matters as all campuses have their advantages and disadvantages (good and bad professors ect). During the first two years, students hit the books hard and I think that being at a small campus certainly has some benefits. Third and fourth year are best in Indianapolis. Students are able to work with "big names" in medicine. We are also able to practice in separate hospitals with separate patient populations: a VA, a community hospital, a hospital for under served, and a university hospital. These separate hospitals provide students the opportunity to view all different patient populations, as well as develop a proficiency with several types of EMRs. I do not know of many other schools that offer this type of diversity. One large con is that the school is growing, however, I do not know if the administration is growing at the same rate. For example, scheduling rotations for third and fourth year has become a nightmare. We did not receive our schedules until weeks after the promised date.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The overall quality of classes is good. Scheduling and academic counselling could be better, however the career counselling and professional interactions have be very helpful

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Campus safety is not always the best. I receive emails multiple times a semester about a student being robbed or attacked etc. The campus is urban (it's in the middle of downtown). However, much of the crime occurs when it's dark. One should always use caution. Overall, I enjoy the school. The faculty is easily accessible. My major complaint, however, is tuition. If you are an out-of-state student, be wary of attending this school. Tuition is ridiculous. Each year I am denied in-state tuition. I hope this helps.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is great mainly because of the flexibility it allows me while I am completing the work. With one hundred percent online classes, I am able to work at a library to gain experience and still work toward completing my Masters degree. The faculty, however, rarely responds to emails, making it difficult to get in contact with them, which also makes it difficult to network. The campus is nice, but I do not spend a lot of time there. Another great bonus of the school is the affordable price. Especially for in-state students, the cost is less than most graduate programs.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I am really grateful for my experiences in the Master of Social Work program. Working and attending graduate school has been difficult as well as being in my practicum. I did not qualify for other financial assistance other than student loans; however, I believe this program is worth the time and effort that I have put into it. I know that the learning and experiences gained through this program will enhance my professional practice and service delivery.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

IUPUI does a wonderful job of marketing their program to all different types of people. I've been able to network with people from various areas and learn more about the education field in general.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros, many of the professors actually worked within the field they were teaching and could offer insight not typically found in the books or academia outside of the real world. A con would be that the typical campus atmosphere was not extended to those of us in evening programs. In my opinion, since many of the offices and events were either scheduled during the time when non-traditional students worked or while we were actually in class instead of having a segway between midday and the evening classes.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

Very good program for students looking to go to professional school for medicine. Not a great program for someone who is looking to go into the workforce because this is more medicine based classes without a thesis.
