Student & Graduate Reviews

2.25 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2018

One big con is that there is a ton of pressure to finish as quickly as possible. I understand what limited funding has to do with that pressure, but there is no system in place for profs to do anything but prod you to get done, and sometimes not all that gently. My adviser has done very little to encourage or direct my steps. As a result, I'm in very real danger of not being close to finishing in the allotted time. Some of that is on me, but much of it is on the lack of resources provided by the department.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I love attending Ohio State University. I have learned so much and grown as a person and musician. The teachers are wonderful and are willing to go above and beyond for their students to succeed. The connections I have made here have and will continue to benefit my career. I received no financial aid for my Master of Music putting me over $40,000.00 in debt, which is the only con.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors truly seem excited about their research and are more than willing to discuss it and recruit grad students. The other grad students get just as excited about learning the material and getting hands on experience, which makes for a great academic environment with collaboration instead of competition.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The College of Veterinary Medicine is excellent and is one of the top vet schools in the country. There is definitely a lot of work involved with becoming a veterinarian but OSU makes you well rounded in your education. You are not only able to treat patients; you learn all the other aspects of being a veterinarian like communication and practice management. I definitely made the right choice with attending OSU.

Ohio State integrates classroom, clinical, and research work seamlessly, creating an integrated educational experience. Professors are invested in your success and in the success of a program. The University has extensive resources and is highly regarded locally and nationwide.

3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program focus on enhancing the students skill and knowledge through research projects. Therefore, students are able to focus on the specific knowledge. The professors (both advisors and class lecturers) are very helpful and open for questions related to the research and academic materials. The facilities are sufficient for students and good ambience environment for studying. However, there are only few activities conducted by students apart from academic activity.
