Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies offers truly the best education in international economics in the world. In just one semester, I have learned about diverse subjects and worked with fellow students on a multitude of projects from around the world. I consider myself so fortunate to be enrolled here. The flexibility of the program also allows for anyone to concurrently work an internship (or two in my case) and gain valuable experience. Perhaps the only con is that some of the class lectures are not conducive to volunteering information. On the whole, this school is fantastic.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

My courses so far in the Biotechnology masters program have been awesome! I worried that the online format would not be as challenging and fulfilling as in-person courses, but the online classes have given me the challenge I expected out of graduate-level courses at an institution like JHU. My instructors have been wonderful and highly accessible.

I am very happy to be the JHU srudent community. Though the school is expensive the education quality is worth the price.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program is great, professors are easy to talk to, courses are challenging. However, the tuition cost is very high. I understand JHU is a world recognized school but I think this great education should be financially accessible to all.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a very expensive program but well known and highly regarded in the field of International Relations. Tuition is high for a degree that will likely land me a moderate-pay government job.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2017

There are several pros Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The networking opportunities are endless, and it is definitely the place to go if you want to work internationally. Despite being a very highly rated school, most of the professors I have had are very down to earth and open to meet with you one on one. Some cons include a very intense work load and location.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Most professors are incredibly interested in ensuring students are mastering the necessary materials. Extremely diverse student body. Free parking. Most faculty is incredibly helpful. Very close to NCI and NIH. Cons: Financial Aid Office. Expensive area to live in. Difficult to plan ahead future class schedules for future semesters.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

JHSPH is based on a quarter system which is a much different system than the semester system and takes a lot to get used to. The con of this is that most of the programs are shorter than what they would be on a semester system so you can complete your degree faster.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

Johns Hopkins University is a school that offers an excellent education, as well as brand recognition. The program I am enrolled in is designed for part-time students with full-time careers in Washington, DC, which is one of the strongest pros; my classmates work on Capitol Hill, in National Security, at top public affairs firms, and other fields that bring a wealth of experience and different perspectives to the classroom. With that, however, brings the only con; with the majority of the students working hectic schedules, socializing and networking outside of the classroom rarely occurs in the program and is the only critique I can share of the program.

Degree: Public Health

 It's the #1 public health school in the country!  It's located in East Baltimore, which is super sketchy.
