Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

Great collaboration of students, there are not quotas of students who fail etc. Nice city to live although very cold winters. The faculty focuses on research and though they appear gruff they do want students to succeed.

Economics PhD program at the University of Minnesota is really challenging but the skills and tools that you acquire in the process are invaluable and are necessary and sufficient for you to become a professional economist.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

With not a lot of attrition, students feel more free to work together The feeling of "we are in this together" is what makes the program so great. Also, the department offers ample teaching opportunities, which I know a lot of other schools do not give to graduate students.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

Cons: The cost of living is higher in the Twin Cities than other parts of the Midwest, and we are discouraged from working so money gets tight. The program is intensive; students can expect sleepless nights and lots of studying. Pros: The program only takes a year, so if you know you want to be a teacher you don't have to wait two or three years to be licensed. The students are everyone's priority- I never feel like I am bothering my professors or advisors; I know they want to help me succeed!

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The DPT program at the U of M is very integrative and collaborative. Communication between faculty and students is open and discussion based while still being focused and relevant. Classroom material is integrated well with clinical concepts and current research. I have yet to encounter cons of the program in my first year. It can be overwhelming for some students, but such rigor is to be expected in a doctoral degree.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy the smaller class sizes because professors have more time to respond to students and encourage student participation. What I love the most about my law school is the way the students help instead of hinder each other. We're all there trying to get a good grade, but we aren't sabotaging one another to get it. If somebody can help another classmate out with a "cold call," he or she will.
