Student & Graduate Reviews

3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I am just beginning this graduate program and feel that the faculty support thus far has been excellent. The faculty has responded to me quickly and professionally. The only con I have at this time is that the program and the Education department do not offer and sort of financial assistance besides loans. Overall, I am looking forward to beginning the program at the University of Colorado.

The pros of a graduate program is that it makes me think critically and contemplate about the problems of the society deeper. I don't see too many cons except the low salary.

4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

CU Boulder has a ton of different areas in which to do research. The Chemistry department also encourages students to search out research opportunities in different departments so you have a wide range of options when choosing dissertation projects. It is a pretty big school, but the grad program is a reasonable size; we are all very good friends and get to TA a lot of students the first year. Overall I'm very happy with the program, there aren't a lot of classes required so you get to dive into research pretty quickly which is great after a very busy first year of classes.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: the graduate aerospace program at CU Boulder is extremely well rounded. There are many different graduate focus areas, and there are opportunities to take classes in secondary focus areas. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and willing to help their students. Boulder is also an excellent place to live; I love the accessibility to the mountains/ ski resorts and downtown Denver. Great views from campus. Cons: It takes a while to get used to navigating the engineering center.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

While all students are in competition with each other to receive the coveted "A," there is without a doubt a strong sense of community at CU Law. Students here have the perfect mix of intelligence and personality.
