Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

DU's law school has continued to advance within the rankings of the top law schools creating a competitive atmosphere and allowing room for the furtherance of a quality education. The school's campus is beautiful and the classrooms for the law school are equipped to handle the latest technology. The library has extensive resources available to the law school students and has a quality atmosphere. The law school professor all come from highly respected educational backgrounds and have graduated among the top of their classes from IV league law schools making them valuable resources for students who have set lofty goals for high achievement. The main con of this law school is the price. The school itself is private and gives out very few scholarships causing the need to get student loans to combat the cost of tuition. This forms an overwhelming amount of debt incurred during law school that can be difficult to work out of upon graduation given the current state of the economy and the difficulty of the job market.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

Fast 10 week sessions and pay a little more for the private education. Access to professors who are involved in the industry.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

We are a satellite program in Durango so we do not always receive the benefits of the main campus. The program does include a multitude of multiculturalism in rural areas.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Compared to other law schools, the peer competition at DU is incredibly healthy; there is a sense of camaraderie and friendly competition without any of the ruthlessness other law schools are known for. The career services center is also very hands-on and the resources available to find internships or jobs are endless. Cons: As with any law school with a curve, students must deal with the bit of competition that comes with fighting to beat the curve with grades. Also, because DU is in the heart of Denver, anyone hoping to practice outside of Colorado might not make as many contacts during law school.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Thus far, I am very much enjoying my graduate program. The professors have been amazing: accessible, knowledgeable, and fair. The community created in my online classes is really amazing to get to experience and I am learning so much from both my peers, professors, and requisite materials and assignments completed. I would definitely recommend DU's graduate study in Creative Writing to incoming students.

Degree: Business

The cost of tuition is a major challenge for a lot of students. Graduate Tax Program is excellent. I am so happy I am pursuing my degree in this field. Very strong faculty with amazing educational and professional backgrounds. Professors are very helpful and inspiring.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2010

This was a great program with a diversified teaching staff. The downside was the part-time program was not conducive to a working adult.

The only cons are related to financial aid. DU doesn't offer aid based on need except for what the FAFSA estimates a student can have. Otherwise this institution is fantastic. Compassionate professors, an environment of inquiry and integrity, and one that is never dull.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The MBA program at Daniels School of Business is excellent. The program's focus on international business and the faculty's obvious real-world experience are two key advantages. I am excited about the Daniels "cohorts", where the same class of people take classes together for the full MBA program (this is part of the Professional MBA program), giving them the ability to develop relationships that will last into the business world after graduation. The biggest con is, of course, the price tag. This MBA is not for the faint of heart or the light of wallet, but I believe it will be worth every penny.

The University of Denver Graduate Tax program is one of the best programs of its kind in the country. The curriculum is challenging and the program helps students find jobs well before graduation.
