Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Not enough opportunities for financial aid seeing how expensive the tuition is. It is one of the harder pharmacy schools in texas to be accepted into and the workload is very stressful. But it is a very good school and we have the highest passing rate on the NAPLEX in Texas.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

Being that UH is a commuter campus, the overall college spirit is somewhat dim when compared to other tier one universities. The Bauer College of Business makes up for the lack of spirit by providing a team of professors and staff members that are of the highest quality and well accomplished in their respective industries/career paths. Lastly, the highly diverse and multi-national student base drives the curriculum home by bring numerous different perspectives to the classroom.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

UH is an up and coming Tier 1 School. They've got the title and they're working hard to produce programs worth bearing the label. Overall the program is great. Just be sure to take a lot of initiative to get out of it everything it could offer. It helps to talk to others who have been in the program and learn from their mistakes. Otherwise you might end up missing out on a lot of things that could've been helpful to know to navigate your way through successfully.

Pros: Good newly hired faculty, Cons: Not enough budget, lack of laboratories
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) has an amazing Intellectual Property Law program that ranks among the top 5 in the nation. The school's tuition, which comes at a fraction of the cost of competing schools, makes UHLC a great value for students looking to work in the legal field in Texas.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

I think the program was AWESOME! Great professors and great learning experience for me. The campus is in a rough area of Houston so saftey was a concern for me sometimes. In addition finding parking is a bigger challenge than the course work itself. Aside from that, the graduate program itself was well worth the investment. I love the schools culture and diversity. Also, the campus is very beautiful and social.

One negative is the high cost of fees. It is 1/3 the cost of attending school there, and that's for someone who lives off campus.
