Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

There are not enough teaching opportunities (TA opportunities not included). Most other I know have been given the chance to teach their own courses. Having the Searle certificate is not an equivalent and means nothing off campus.

To whom it may concern: I am currently enrolled in the Northwestern University's Master of Science program in Quality Assurance and Regulatory sciences. This program was designed in conjunction with the Pharmaceutical industry. The goal of the program is to train developing leaders in the nuances and current trends of the Quality and Regulatory fields in the pharmaceutical drug development industry. Moving on, with respect to "Pros", I must say that there are many. I feel very fortunate to be educated by professors who have real pharmaceutical industry experiences. Often many of my professors are actively working in industry. This allows for a fantastic opportunity for student to apply and relate what they learn in class to the real world, through the professor's own experiences. Finally, with respect to "Cons", I feel that the courses can focus more on practical application as opposed to purely theory. The more students can relate the classroom with the boardroom, the better it will be for preparing them for the real world problems they will face.

Degree: Information Technology

The pros of this graduate program is its interactive accessibility online. Cons is that I am not in the actual classroom.

Learning curve in coursework is uneven. This may be due to the program being so new.

Rigorous program. The ability to complete the entire program online, mostly asynchronously, made it possible for me to participate in the program while pursuing a time-consuming career.

The online program is very self driven. If you are motivated and can push yourself then this program is for you. If not, you will fall behind quickly and be unable to complete the program.

EDI is a great program for product design. They are setting us up well to succeed in the future.

The courses are taught by some of the best instructors in the field. All the instructors have a wealth of experience in their respective fields. The instructor to student ratio is excellent! There's so much value in interacting with other students who come from diverse professional and academic backgrounds. Unfortunately, the cost of the program is extremely high.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Faculty accessibility and availability of one of the strongest aspects of this medical school. The faculty genuinely want you to succeed, and they are there to help you in any way they can. It is a very expensive medical school; there is no way around that. They do try to provide as much financial aid as they can. There is no subsidized student housing, and Chicago can be very expensive if you don't "shop around" for an apartment first.

The Feinberg school of medicine has recently rolled out a new curriculum. While it is academically challenging an includes early clinical experience it does not leave much time to pursue individual interests.
