Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

The on boarding process was simple and the school works with you every step of the way. They make you feel very welcome when first applying. They pointed me in the correct direction when needed. The email interface could use more work its kind of confusing signing in in the onboard process. The website is very helpful in showing everything you might need to immaculate in the school.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2017

Carey really is what you make of it. It's not perfect by any means - but if you put in the time you will have lots of opportunities. They are very close to making this a special business school - but still have some challenges to tackle. The faculty is very very close to being elite. They've gotten a lot of great professors from Wharton, Harvard, etc. The student piece is probably their biggest challenge - it's overwhelmingly Asian in the MSF program. If they can solve the diversity problem this will be an elite business school program. If you're hard working, don't mind being taken out of your comfort zone, and want to build your skill set - id recommend Carey for you. The Hopkins name carries a lot of weight.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2017

Really awful in almost every way. The program has almost no diversity and it is massive. A 600 student MS Finance program with more than 550 of them coming from China is a sign that there is a diversity problem. The program is essentially a "blood bag" of revenue to keep the Carey school alive. $40 million in revenue every year from the 600 students that they put no effort whatsoever into placing. Career services exist to tell students they should "explore themselves" but this is graduate school - the exploration piece should be done and the PLACEMENT piece should exist. They publish no placement data for this program because they flat out do not place students. The whole thing is a massive sham, an office building in Dupont Circle filled with students they'd like to hide from the public eye to avoid drawing attention to the backwards mentality this program is built on.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

Johns Hopkins University offers a wide variety of concentrations within Biotechnology to help students personalize their education to prepare for industry. Because of the variety of concentrations, there is always an extensive list of electives students can take at two campuses or online. Although I cannot speak to the online courses, I know the overall rigor of the program is on par to other programs at Johns Hopkins.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2019

I cannot speak highly enough of the Johns Hopkins MA in Museum Studies program. Not only were the program managers beyond helpful before classes began, the curriculum is directly applicable to the field and engaging! Their alumni network is also quite strong which is helpful now while I am in the program but more importantly after I graduate.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences

Initially I was skeptical of pursuing an online based degree, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the high level of information delivery and course integrity. I highly recommend this type of education to any full-time working individual who desires to further their formal education and explain their knowledge and potential.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

Johns Hopkins has pleasantly surprised me with its rigorous academic standards and it is truly a challenging school. My previous education at the University of Michigan and New York University prepared me well but none of those institutions pushed me as a professional or a student as Hopkins. The expectations are sky high at Hopkins and the instructors (nor students) don't settle for second or third best effort. It is a super competitive environment (not to mention the grade deflation) and anyone considering this school must prioritize what they value in life. If social life is important to you then you may want to rethink your academic options. The demands placed upon students is high and it won't leave much time for social life for a while. However, I had made that choice mentally prior to enrolling here by doing homework on the school's rigor (and the main reason I came here) and how I will fit it in the schedule. I came to Hopkins fully prepared to drop the school if it failed to meet my requirements on rigor and challenge me intellectually. It has met all my needs so far and I am enjoying learning and expanding my knowledge at an exponential pace. A grade earned at Hopkins is really a grade "earned" and very likely deflated.
