Student & Graduate Reviews

2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Professors are always accessible, and I have access to the best facilities and most current research in the physical therapy field. Ohio State has given me exposure to a wide variety of opportunities.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Although the degree is overpriced, I received a good education.
2.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The advantages of this program are that it is in Columbus, OH and is part of the Ohio State University. This means there are many opportunities for community involvement and lots of ways to gets involved on campus. The resources of a large campus are also available. I also have a very involved advisor. However, being part of a large university has its drawbacks. I have felt like a number since arriving at the university, despite the fact that I had a very high GPA and I am involved on campus. There is also little financial aid available for master's level students. They do not seem to care about socioeconomic diversity or first generation college students so there is little support for them. My paperwork has been lost by my college several times as well. So, overall, I would not enthusiastically recommend this program or university. I would definitely consider others and keep OSU as a back-up plan only.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

This program does offer you a lot of different options for careers. There are many different specializations that cater to a variety of interests. The program offers a great deal of support for connecting but some specializations get more connections than others. There is not much in ways of scholarships for graduate students though. They do have a few scholarships people can apply for, but it is too difficult to be awarded any of those. A plethora of leadership opportunities are offered to students though.

Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is great and is a designed focus program. It allows students to really dwell into their own design process and challenges students to think creatively and outside of the box. The professors are really understanding and are willing to help. At times, professors change their ideas multiple times while you are designing your project(s).
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the largest cons of my graduate program (the one facing me right now) is that despite applying to the graduate program and being accepted, I must complete my first year (consisting of undergraduate level coursework) and then apply again in order to move on to graduate level coursework. Financially, this puts students in a rough spot. Already having completed an undergraduate degree--no grants and limited scholarships are available. Being listed in the university's system as undergraduate for the first year prohibits students in this program from accessing federal grants for graduate students. However, the excellence of the program and the quality of the education received outweighs these cons and will hopefully result in a job that will easily help me repay the massive debt I am accruing.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I study law and business at the Ohio State University. JD/MBA dual degree program is academically competitive, and you should learn to manage your time. Pros are: for in-state students, OUS really is a top choice. Nationally known, great quality education at relatively cheap tuition tag. Diversity on campus is amazing! Cons are: it is a small graduate school on a very large campus. Some students never venture outside of grad school and they only hang out with each other.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2014

The short duration of this program is great for working adults or those who want to get their degree quickly, but also leaves little room for extra electives and participation in extracurricular activities or research.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the top school in the nation! I feel very fortunate to be attending this University!
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Ohio State University has a great support system with both students and staff. Everyone there is willing and happy to help with questions. The small class size in the graduate programs also give you the advantage of a small college with the large campus environment.
