Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

PROS: Great culture. Great faculty and a great marketing curriculum. The student body is second to none when it comes to balancing personality and intellect. I love my classmates. CONS: It's a large program so it's easy to feel like a number. The tuition is expensive and there aren't many opportunities for financial assistance. Living in Evanston is ridiculously expensive. I wasn't expecting that.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Northwestern's graduate program in elementary education is strong. I felt very supported by faculty and loved that choice to student teach in either an urban or suburban classroom. It is uncommon to find both options in a single program. Cost of living can be a bit expensive due to the close proximity of Chicago, but Chicago is such a wonderful city that it is worth the cost. The Master's Project research program is also a unique experience unavailable at most other schools. Highly recommended!

Northwestern is a top-notch graduate university and I love my program. Having professors who are highly sought after in their field is fantastic, but it means they are not always as accessible as I would like; however, I have always felt that the proverbial door was open should I have questions or concerns.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a good program, but difficult to manage a career while attending class regularly. Doable, but challenging.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Not the best organized department but the student organization for BME (BMEGS) is great! It's been a great opportunity for leadership for me and they helped hugely with my transition to graduate school. I have loved it at Northwestern and would recommend it to anyone!

The program provides access to a great deal of resources and it up to the students to leverage them for their needs.

Overall, a great school with caring, intelligent, and accessible faculty members. They have truly challenged my thinking, and I feel like I can ask any questions I need to. Valuable program in a fun city to live in!

Excellent school with and excellent program. If you are dedicated to teaching, you will receive a quality education on the subject at Northwestern. The University itself if quite pricey and not very diverse, but if you want a quality education, it is worth some sacrifices.
