Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

It blends business and economics which works together in so many ways but it is a very costly school. It is very well known and hold more prestige which is also why I chose it for a graduate school. With the high cost any scholarship would be very helpful.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program for physical therapy provides an excellent education. Professors care about the students as a whole and not just academically. The professors truly want their students to succeed professionally and in any other aspect of life. Everyone in the program is very knowledgeable and confident in their teachings; they are willing meet with students outside of class. Students in the program want to be the difference in the world, and have the strongest passion for helping and caring for others.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, Marquette University is a great college to attend. Especially, Marquette's physical therapy program because it is ranked #12 in the country. Some pros about the physical therapy graduate program are the high education quality of the program, the networking opportunities available, support from faculty, and the social life. The cons about the program is that since Marquette is a private university, it is very expensive and you will have to pay out of pocket during the school year even if you are offered the maximum amount of financial aid as I was. Ultimately, Marquette University offers a high quality education and is a great choice as long as you are able to afford it.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with Marquette's Physical Therapy graduate program. The greatest aspect of the program is the faculty. The staff is willing to go above and beyond for the students and they truly have the students' best interests in mind. Most of the staff is extremely engaging and knowledgeable about the physical therapy profession. Their ability to make uninteresting subjects, interesting, is truly remarkable. The biggest con I feel that the program has is that certain students are better prepared for certain course than others. For example, students that choose Exercise Physiology or Athletic Training as an undergraduate major are required to take an anatomy as well as a kinesiology course. Though these classes are of a basic level, they give students an introduction to the material. Students who chose majors outside of these two, do not have access to these classes. Therefore, they may be slightly disadvantaged when the graduate courses come along. To the program's defense, the professors teach the graduate classes as if no one has seen the material. However, in all reality, some of the students benefit from hearing the information twice, vs. those that are receiving it for the first time. I feel that that the program should either stop encouraging students to be "diverse" by choosing other majors, or they should give these other majors the opportunity to take similar classes as the exercise science and athletic training students, if they are already on the DPT track.

Degree: Physician Assistant

I have had a phenomenal experience at Marquette University both as an undergraduate and a Physician Assistant graduate student. I have a multitude of opportunities not offered at other universities and I will be more than prepared for my career when I graduate.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2014

Great program due to the new facilities and Marquette finds innovative ways to stay on top of the competition and graduate competent clinicians. Cons is that tuition is increasing making loan repayment more of a burden.
