Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I thoroughly enjoy the academic environment provided at the University of Michigan. The faculty members that I am able to learn from on a daily basis are experts in their field and truly enjoy imparting their knowledge on young social workers. The workload can be intense at times, but I am able to find value in all of the work that I am doing. I do wish that more financial aid were available, as graduate school is very expensive and the course load leaves for little time to work and earn money.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe that the Ross MBA is the most collaborative of the top MBA programs. The quality of the students here is very impressive as is the level of diversity. That being said, even though I believe I had a very strong application, including GMAT scores well above the average, I received no financial aid from the university and am financing my degree through private and government loans. Additionally, I have been surprised by the quality difference between the few faculty members I have come in contact with. Two of them were excellent and the other two were less than satisfactory.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm studying in Masters of Applied Economics program. Pros of the program: 1. Very flexible - More convenient for students who already found their goal and know what they want to learn. You can choose any course you would like to. 2. Very diversified - For example, in my course we have a lot of students from central banks of their own countries. For further career, constructing relationship with international students is very important for an economist from a small country like Mongolia. Since Mongolian economy is very dependent from other countries' we always need to keep an eye on other countries' economy. 3. Just focus on your studies - Everything here is so study-friendly. You can find very comfortable places to study from any building you get into and which is very hard in my country. From food to transportation everything is so convenient. I'm not afraid of the cold weather like others because there will be warm buses waiting for you to get you back home. In Mongolia, sometimes it reaches -40 Celsius. And imagine walking back home when it is - 40 Celsius but here it rarely reaches -20 Celsius and you can take warm and clean buses everyday. Cons of the program: Only con for me is no scholarship for MAE program from the University. If you are an international student like me, first thing you should do is find scholarship from your government. If they don't give full scholarship then you might have some difficulties in paying your tuition fee.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel like the strength of the program lies in the amazing faculty. They really are extremely smart, not only in an academic sense, but in navigating the business of academia as well.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

The school is one of the leading architecture colleges in the world. It has a very large network, in fact the largest alumni network in the US. The workload is quite substantial, honestly never feel there is enough hours in a day to complete everything 100%, but that is of course the point, measuring our effectiveness under a heavy burden of work. Even with the heavy load, the immense amount of knowledge and technology available, far out way the work assigned.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is extremely competitive and provides ubiquitous recourses for preparation for careers after graduate school. Additionally, the program offers a variety of scholarships that encompass the many different aspects needed for a scientific graduate degree. For instance there are grants or available funding opportunities to go to conferences, to travel to the field, to use facilities both on campus as well as on other campuses for analyzing data etc. The only downfall is the variety of high level courses offered for graduate students. We are not required to take many courses but the ones that are offered are very limited.
