Prestige, Opportunity and great Match placements. It's located in a very expensive city and just as expensive as some top tier private schools.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

UCSF provides an environment for cutting edge technology and up to date information as far as best clinical practice. The faculty members are compassionate and make sure to continuously relate the coursework to the reason for being in school -- to help our future patients. San Francisco is also an outstanding place to be immersed in. Unfortunately, cost of living is extremely high in this city which adds to student debt and UCSF is partnered with SFSU which causes same-day commuting between campuses which can be draining.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall, the UCSF school of nursing and other programs are strong due to the passion, dedication, and support provided by the faculty and staff. The faculty foster close relationships with students and alumni and university provide ample career support as well. The students are highly intelligent, passionate, and support each other academically and socially. However, with any educational institution, there are deficits. Ucsf school of nursing requires some significant revision or faculty changes in only a few core masters of nursing classes, and luckily faculty highly value and adapt future courses based on student course evaluations. The nursing masters program has great value in terms of tuition and education quality, but scholarships and grants are not as robust as private school counterparts. The campus is safe and the social life is decent on campus but there are ample things to do in the rest of the city of San francisco. This is a very difficult program to get into but well worth the effort and persistence.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The faculty is very engaged and willing to help mentor students and encourage growth and development toward career success. This school is home to some of the top researchers in the world with extremely impressive publication records and contributions toward public health. The city is an expensive place to live, which makes the students stretch their stipends in order to succeed in the city.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Love the education, but San Francisco is ridiculously expensive! I feel that UCSF should be using more technology in the curriculum given its proximity to silicon valley and the partnerships that they could easily form with large tech companies.
