Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Entering my final year, I have had little need so far with networking and career support. Additionally, I lived off campus and transportation was not an issue so I am not familiar with those categories. Baltimore has been a great city over the years, full of a variety of activities and ethnic diversity. Overall my graduate program, has been everything I expected, challenging and engaging. The amount of technology throughout the program has been fair and not challenging to keep up with. I look forward to my new career path upon completion!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I was always excited about pursuing grad school for a better career opportunity. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but I had great support throughout. The support of family, friends and especially my professors are great pros to my graduate life. Its been a blessing that each time I get stuck on a project or the deadline to meet an assignment, I can go to my professors and honestly talk with them, they've been there to encourage me and give me wonderful insight. Other pros about my graduate program is that my university is big on interdisciplinary professional collaboration. Therefore, I often work or practice my studies alongside law students, and students studying medicine, that was great. The con that sticks out the most to me while in my graduate program is the neighborhood. Obviously anywhere you go you have to be safe and watch out for crimes. I had to really develop a sense of awareness around me because my neighborhood yield dangerous surroundings. Its a pro that I became more aware of remaining cautious of my surroundings, but its a con that I did hear a bit more than expected about the crimes in the neighborhood.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The program itself is wonderful. Every professor I've had is passionate and knowledgeable about the field of Social Work. My professors have utilized school technology to make learning more convenient. I'm able to utilize blackboard to chat with classmates, turn in assignments and see my grades. My professors have offered tests and quizzes on blackboard that instantly give me my grade back. The only cons I have, are not about the actual program. The campus is located in downtown Baltimore, which is not the safest area. I get alerts multiple times each week about crimes committed near the campus and I can't walk to my car alone at night. The school has taken steps to offer free police escorts for students to help the safety issue.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The world needs research and the major goal of my graduate program is to train professionals in research techniques in both medicine and biotechnology. However, there is limited funds in research and sometimes often difficult to secure a job.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors are definitely a great attribute to the students. Most have a lot of professional experience and are always willing to give students educational and professional advice. In addition, many are flexible and supportive of students. They are extremely knowledgeable and you will learn a lot for your MSW career! However, the overall administration of the school can sometimes be daunting with financial aid and student advising. So students need to be prepared to advocate for themselves when they need things done. In addition, the field placements make it nearly impossible to work full time and complete the MSW program. So many students have to stop working, which means they have to incur additional student loans for tuition and living expenses. Overall, the program is good and I would recommend it, but those are all things to consider when applying for admission.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The Physical Therapy faculty is absolutely amazing. As experts in their particular discipline, each professor is able to teach proper clinical decision making to the student as well as provide insight into what actually happens when you're a practicing Physical Therapist. The facilities are the only con that I can think of, but the level of instruction is much more important that the facilities in my opinion.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that the structure of this graduate program truly helps individuals to feel well educated and confident to begin their careers in social work after graduation. The teachers are great and are very interested in making sure that you can apply the information you learn to life, rather than just reciting textbook information. Also, the field placement requirement is a great opportunity to "get your feet wet" in the social work field and to further learn how to apply your learning to your career.
