Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

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

JHU is a great school! Since I am studying online, I can't rate campus living and other related categories. I do wish there was better career support for EP students. The career services aren't available for part time students.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the access to leaders in the field as it is the highest ranking program in the nation. The cons are the term system, so since each term is so short (shorter than a quarter system), courses move very quickly. I also think they could offer better campus computing systems.
2.5 out of 5.0

Pros: close to my home great school reputation generous scholarships Cons: Lack of rigorous or relevant coursework No student life or professional development Limited number and range of faculty
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my program include access to professors and course material through Blackboard, experienced and knowledgeable professors, and fast-paced, informative material that is applicable to real world applications. Cons include outdated and uncomfortable classrooms.

2.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2010

JHU/School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Pros: -name recognition -professors are knowledgeable (for the most part - there are duds wherever you go) -the workload is manageable -lots of events/speakers on-campus -students can take classes at other JHU divisions -Dupont Circle location -students can take advantage of all Washington, DC has to offer in terms of events, think tanks, organizations, World Bank, etc. Cons: -Career Services is a joke -SAIS is not part of the Consortium -the alumni network is not very strong because the school administration is not especially responsive to student needs and does not inspire any fidelity or sense of obligation that lasts beyond graduation
1.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

There are some nice people, but primarily there are a lot of old tenured professors who aren't doing interesting research and who aren't very good teachers either.
