Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at Marquette University allows me to be hands-on and immersed into my program, allowing me to choose not only Engineering courses, but other courses (in business, physical therapy, etc.) directly related to my masters thesis project. This allows for direct application to my task at hand instead of having to take required 'core' courses that may be unrelated. One con includes the inaccessibility of outside volunteer/work experience as I do not have time to complete coursework, research assistant (RA) hours, play collegiate athletics (as an NCAA women's soccer player at Marquette) AND get outside volunteer experience at a career that I may be interested in. My time remains focused on the first three aspects.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

This program has been a wonderful experience in developing each student, myself included into the best professionals we can be. Through extremely supporting faculty who dedicate their time outside of classroom time to best benefit the students. In addition they serve as great mentors helping us to succeed. Our course work is very comprehensive and more than prepares us for our clinical experiences and ultimately our careers! At times the weeks are busy and the work is taxing, but what graduate program does not have those moments? The community that is developed in this program is unmatched and I know I will always have a family supporting wherever my career adventures may lead me!

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Marquette has a fantastic graduate program with a wonderful staff that is extremely supportive throughout the duration of the program. The course load is challenging but necessary to be successful. Living arrangements are very affordable and widely available for students. The students are very supportive and social finding time to have fun together to get through the difficult course load associated with PA school. Cons: The location is not the greatest as the neighborhoods tend to change quickly but the campus is safe. The population of students could be more diverse, the majority of students are white, middle class, but the class changes every year and the program as a whole truly embraces diversity. The school does not have a strong reliance on the use of technology. There is not a substantially large amount of financial assistance from the university itself, but staff knows where to direct you if you need financial assistance.

Marquette's MBA program is excellent. The classes are geared to prepare you for real life employment as well as increasing your understanding of theory and possibilities. The diverse background of students and professors makes for an enriching experience. The campus is located close to downtown Milwaukee making travel and social life easy.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm in the Physician Assistant program at Marquette, a very competitive program with over 500 applicants for 55 available spots. The program has very high expectations, making it one of the most reputable PA programs nationally. With the high work load, my days consist of school and studying. The school is located in an area of high crime rate, but being cautious about my surroundings, have kept me safe. Being a transfer from a different college, there are no scholarship offered through Marquette, with tuition being over $35,000 a year.
