Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Florida graduate business program offers vast opportunities for students to work hard and to succeed in their careers. I recently started this program and am quickly learning how much time and dedication is needed to stay on track with the coursework. Although weekly assignments and reading material seem overwhelming at times, I find the work interesting and very beneficial to my career. As a member of the military, I work with leadership each day to resolve issues on base and within the community. This business degree allows me to better relate to my leadership and co-workers and to server our customers, the American taxpayers, as best as possible. The Hough School of Business is providing me with great opportunities to better myself. I am paying for this degree without assistance (my family members are using my GI bill) and would appreciate any assistance possible. Unfortunately, the University of Florida scholarships are given to in-class students and not to working-professional students (my program). I had hoped this was not the case, but I am very grateful for this opportunity and thank you so much for your consideration.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

The Masters of Science in Management is only as good as you make it. Grades aren't an issue as long as you show up. And workload is not too bad. The advisers are horrible though, They are nice, but not too knowledgeable. Just know what you want to do and make sure it is ok on your own. Other than that it is a good program if the MBA is not viable.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I am very happy with my graduate program. However, I feel the overall experience should be more encouraging instead of degrading.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2012

Felt completely neglected by this program. Waste of my time and money. No help finding sources of funding or career advice. Unethical behavior went unaddressed.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2013

At the level of writing my dissertation, I would say that being a graduate student in Anthropology has been one of my best stages in life. The availability of excellent faculty and classes within the department and from other programs prepared me to be confident enough to be engaged in my PhD at the same time enjoying what I do. I have been blessed to always be funded by UF through teaching assistantship, which, I think, is the best opportunity for graduate students to get the teaching experience before finishing their degree. Faculty and stuff at my department and at other programs have been of great help. It's a great time of my life that I would cherish after my graduation.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The Anthropology is excellent particularly if you are interested in an interdisciplinary approach to the discipline, medical anthropology, or want to focus on Latin America or Africa. There is just about every resource a graduate student needs to successfully complete a Masters and/or PhD. Cons: Funding is low. Faculty are supportive in helping students find and secure funding, but unfortunately it isn't a given.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2011

It was a tough program, but that's what you expect when you're coming from one of the best programs in the world. When you graduate, you will be well respected. As far as the cons, some faculty are not as available as you would prefer, but that is the minority. The majority of faculty members are willing to help and work around your schedule. Overall, I have no regrets about attending this university for my professional education.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The Fisheries and Aquatic Science program is great and the teachers within the School of Forest Resources and Conservation are as well. As soon as you venture outside of this school however, the teachers are not nearly as helpful and engages with their students. The bus system in Gainesville is amazing so it is very easy to get around and if you ever get any spare time, the nightlife in Gainesville is awesome.
