Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Amazing professors and top quality education from the program. Small class ratio, so there can be as much teacher/student interaction as a student wants or needs. Also, the school's notoriety gains attention from top businesses for careers post graduation.

The MD program at Feinberg School of Medicine is student based, with incredibly devoted faculty and staff. However, the in-class time commitment is very heavy and attendance is taken in many first and second year classes which is a drawback. I believe that it is worth it though as the resources and hospitals I have access to for my 3rd and 4th year outweigh the lack of independence in the first 2 years.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent overall program with the opportunity to work with highly motivated and talented peers. Although costly, the program is definitely worth the money.

I think Kellogg is a great school with a challenging curriculum. It also has a great social aspect and network that are very supportive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Going to class in the evenings after work is rough, but its always energizing to be engaged in lectures with other students that genuinely want to be there and have a lot of great insight to share. Most of the professors are wonderful both academically and personally. It is truly a great environment to be in! My only large con is that racial diversity needs to be improved.

My graduate program is amazing at developing real analytics professionals. If you keep up with the course work, you'll walk out with real skills that you can use to develop your career.

This is a new program, and is still developing. However, the professors are very good, and the curriculum is new and relevant.

Northwestern is a great university; it has a fantastic library, top of the range faculty and the learning environment is generally good. However, Campus transportation especially on weekends is not as smooth as it relies on the Chicago city transportation only. NU buses do not operate on weekends. Given that Evanston is expensive to live in, a number of grad students live in Chicago which makes it necessary to have affordable and reliable transportation to and from campus throughout the week.
