Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

There is a reason U of M has been #1 in health policy and management for a decade :-). The campus is beautiful and very student friendly. Highly recommended.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is run jointly by the Rackham Graduate School and the School of Medicine at the University of Michigan. As a result, I have access to faculty with a diverse array of backgrounds, thus helping me succeed more easily. Also, there is a research thesis component of my master's degree; it will grant me more research skills and experience and make me a better candidate for the job market. The downside of my graduate program is that the classes are large, usually ranging from 95 to 300 student per class and accommodating both graduate and medical students. This way, individual attention from the instructors is minimal. Also, the grading system is a little "unfair" because medical students are graded "pass/fail," while graduate students are receiving standard letter grades (e.g. A, A-, etc.).

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

This is the first year the Master of Management program is being offered at the University of Michigan. With an undergraduate degree in Digital Media, I chose to pursue this graduate program because I need to build competency in the business environment to lead the advancement of digital environments. Because the digital industry is somewhat malleable and certainly fast paced, leaders need to be fluent in the business options which best serve all aspects of their endeavor. As I enter this industry, I need a comprehensive, disciplined understanding of business to effectively function and excel in the digital sector. This Master of Management program teaches a solid grounding in business fundamentals and offers the leadership and career developing workshops and events you need to launch your business career.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

The education is high value, the surrounding area is a celebrated university town and is beautiful. The networking for architecture students is heavily, though not exclusively, local. In general, it is competitive throughout the national market. The only gripe I have is and the cost of tuition and living. Out-of-state tuition is an unfortunate reflection of the times, however - except where catered for university students (which is prevalent) the cost of living is higher than expected for a mid-west university suburb. The burden is manageable with assistance from the university whose resources are extensive and widely available to students..

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program embraces the role and importance of academe. The school is excellent, and its resources are incomparable. The surrounding town is fun to live in and is close to the city. The only downside is the overall cost of attendance. But, like I said, its resources are impressive so most students actually receive financial aid from the university.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The MSW at the University of Michigan is regularly ranked #1 in US News and World Report. The quality of the academics is very high, but the cost of the program is too high compared to what an average social worker can expect to earn, leaving most students with an unmanageable amount of debt. There is inadequate career support, and the office of field instruction (i.e. internships) was obstructionist when I was trying to get the practical experience I really wanted. I believe it is for these reasons (i.e. to increase employability and earning potential) that many alums (including myself) have gone on to pursue a second graduate degree.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Pro: U of M School of Social of Social is a great program that allows you all opportunities to learn what you are seeking. U of M is supportive of all backgrounds and identities of individuals. U of M challenges you to be innovative and how to create equitability for all. Con: As a non-traditional student building connections is difficult. You must be an extrovert, or force yourself to, in order to build relationships, and access resources that are not advertised.
