Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The pros are that this is a well regarded program with a great reputation in the occupational therapy community. They have agreements with many hospitals and clinics from which to choose for clinical rotations. The biggest plus is that the student body for the program is not very large, which makes for an environment that is extremely conducive to learning. Because the program is small, it is also much easier to see professors during office hours for questions. The faculty/staff are cordial, friendly, and want to see their students succeed.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019

It was an all-around great experience once we got past the financial aspect. Cost of living is really high in the Inland Empire. I'm married and have two children so the financial aid that is available is not even in the ballpark of close to enough. A family of four has to find off campus housing which is scary expensive. I ended having to work part-time to cover expenses, while doing a full-time PhD. Not ideal. But if you can deal with that, or if you're single, this can be a great experience!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this graduate program are that I will receive an experience which will support my professional career and receive the necessary skills to begin a career as a biostatistician for the Center for Disease Control. It has supportive staff members and small classes to facilitate student growth. The only cons that come to mind are the costs of tuition and books.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

Loma Linda University provides a wonderful environment to receive a higher education in many fields. With so many programs within the school, it is very easy to intermingle with different disciplines and to integrate the other fields of study with your own. As a Christian school, it provides the opportunity to grow not only academically, but spiritually as well.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Starting graduate is kind of starting kindergarten. You are nervous to start the program and also meeting new friends. Graduate school is very challenging but could be overcome with a lifestyle of discipline, exercise and have a great self-esteem. Graduate school financial aid don't provide much fund to pay for your education. But over all their value system keeps me motivated to continue my education and pursue my dream.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I have yet to comment anything on the program as it does not start for me until the Fall of 2014.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

While the program has been helpful to me in many ways (e.g., flexibility in classes schedule, faculty and staff availability, stay locally), it has been difficult to compete with students from other accredited and more well-known universities vying for the same work/training positions.
