Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

What I really enjoyed about my time at Kellogg was the people, both faculty and students. There are a lot of opportunities to get to know your classmates and almost of all of them are great (you'll always have some nut jobs). Even the teaching staff is very accessible and ready to help with career advise; even though a separate career counselling department exists. Highly recommend Kellogg!

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: great name and school; opportunities for internal and external funding; six years of financial support; train transportation is very useful though could be better; staff very helpful and "homey"; professors friendly and accessible Cons: coursework years are overwhelming; school fellowship barely enough for living expenses; facilities and equipment need upgrading (lack of computers, very few and/or inaccessible printers); lack of communal space; semi-frequent "alert" emails from campus safety about robbing of wallets, iphones, etc., make me worried

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

MTS is a really unique communication program. It may not hold the rankings of some of the other top comm programs, but it really isn't trying to compete. Pros: - World-renowned faculty doing really innovate research. Very approachable and well connected to the students. - Very economically supportive. Stipend is comparable to that in cities with much higher cost of living. And there are plenty of resources available for research funding, travel funding, etc. - Supportive environment for those staying in academia, but also for those who are looking at industry jobs. Faculty is very well connected with Facebook, Google, etc. Cons: - Class offerings are slim. - Due to the program being highly lab-based, there isn't a strong community amongst the graduate students.

I love the people here - it really feels like the faculty and students are supportive and want you to succeed, as opposed to some programs that are super cut-throat and competitive. I think the environment at Northwestern is perfect for collaboration as well as personal growth.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Most faculty members are extremely supportive and helpful. The department could do more to financially support students. Methodological training needs to be improved keeping in mind the competitiveness of the job market.

The faculty and students are great. Less diversity than I'd like, but that's a common problem.
