Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros of my graduate program are the opportunity to work closely with my PI, the chance to investigate interesting scientific ideas, and the chance to work with motivated fellow graduate students. Cons of my program include varying timelines between research projects and PIs, and limited resources (money, instruments, lab space), but these are typical to any graduate program in chemistry.

The program really focuses on research, getting you into a lab within your first semester. The faculty and staff are helpful and encouraging.

It is a very good program for students who would like to learn more about interdisciplinary area. It is a small department, so people work really closely to each other.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently pursuing a Ph.D in Chemical biology at Johns Hopkins. The program is very unique in that it is an interdisciplinary program that pulls faculty and topics from pharmacology, biochemistry, biochemical engineering, biology, biophysics, and chemistry programs and allows a student to gain experience in any discipline that they wish. The interdisciplinary background gives the students a more holistic overall understanding of the hard sciences and allows a student to dive into any discipline branching out of chemical biology for their focus while allowing them to understand each of the other disciplines as well. The program requires a large amount of work and time however it is very rewarding in the quality of experience and knowledge that is gained.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The courses for The Johns Hopkins University's Engineering for Professional Program are taught by professors with extensive industry experience, and are designed to be taken while working full time. Classes can be taken online, and are streamed live from the classroom where you can engage with the professors and other students. It is very convenient to study from another state, with recorded lecture to go back to. The courses are quite rigorous, but it is obvious the instructors are committed to the advancement of knowledge of their students. A final benefit for me is how relevant the courses are to my actual job - it is very nice for my job and my schoolwork to feed off each other. However, prospective students need to weigh carefully the cost of the degree versus the quality of the education they believe they will get. Johns Hopkins is extremely expensive, and it is very likely prospective students can get an almost-as-good education for a fraction of the cost.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

Graduate classes are incredibly expensive. I'm not sure that the return on my investment will be worth it. Professors in the applied economics program have varied backgrounds and tend to be pretty good though classes can be hit or miss (some are not all that different from undergrad classes whereas some are more challenging). The primary advisor is good about keeping students informed about different job opportunities and networking events.
