Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am doing the part-time, joint degree between the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the MBA. While there is some crossover in the actual content I am learning, the two programs could not be more different. For one, the semesters are different; the Krieger School has 13-week semesters, whereas the Carey School has 8-week semesters. The effect for me as a part time student who is working full time is that while the 13 week is drawn out, with a good balance of reading and assignments, the 8-week classes feel very rushed and stressful. I think the pacing is also reflected in how the professors teach. The professors at the Krieger School have been top notch: challenging, engaged, accessible, and experienced. While I do not question the experience of most of my professors at Carey, having to cram longer courses into 8 weeks gives the effect of cranking out assignments. The advisors for both degrees have been stellar - very communicative and helpful, and I very appreciate their support. The program is certainly academically rigorous, and for the most part, I have been able to apply what I have learned directly to my job. I look forward to the rest of it.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a one of a kind graduate program which prepares its students for the medical device design industry. They teach you how to go from bedside to bench top to bedside for both developing and developed countries.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

The workload varies by professor. A few professors are very helpful, however for the most part, I found them inaccessible and unwilling to help students. The career center is also not that great. I've been waiting for the scholarship application page to be updated for this year, but it has been completely removed and classes are almost $3700 per course. I guess it's all worth having a JHU degree.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is highly acclaimed for its renown professors, course selection, and access to the various resources unique to DC. The work challenging and rewarding. It is highly competitive to be admitted to this program, however once admitted, the atmosphere is one of support from students and staff. The prestigiousness of this institution comes with a hefty price.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2010

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is an incredible school. There are a number of research and educational opportunities for students. The faculty is very supportive and approachable. Everyone is warm and welcoming and the school has a very strong presence in the local community.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

Great school with interesting faculty and program of research. Could do more to meaningfully forge connections with the city of Baltimore at large(although a great deal of worth while effort has been starting to be put forth in this realm).

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

It is a very competitive program among all the programs in financial math. Most of us has experienced a very tough time in the rigorous training in all the related quantitative disciplines. The program director is very responsible and easy going, you can knock in his door any time during the office hour. The Chairman of the Department is very warm-hearted, and he will do anything to make us getting familiar with each other and develop a close relationship as a big family.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

There is very little financial support from the school to international students. The very few scholarships are given to mostly students with medical background, which is quite unfair. Because the government has already subsdiced the education of medical school, and they have many scholarships within their field that students from other schools cannot receive.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The AAP GSS program at JHU is filled with people from all different industries in the DC/VA/MD area. The exposure to a wide variety of subject areas is essential to the success of this program. The type of extra activities that the program organizes from employer tours to weekly symposiums from field experts, creates a rich environment for learning. The DC area is expensive so with that, the courses are also expensive. Overall, I am extremely happy I picked this program and cannot wait to be able to brag that I am a graduate from Johns Hopkins in the near future!
