Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my program are the quality of the guest speakers that come in who are working at the forefronts of their fields. The one con that is specific to me is that I live very far away from campus.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Seattle is a healthcare epicenter and is thus a perfect area for this kind of program. The faculty are seasoned and well versed in health care matters and are thus great sources of knowledge in the area.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I took UW classes through a partnership on the surrounding Island of Bainbridge. The class size was small and allowed time for quality discussions. Because of the small class sizes, I built a sense of community with my peers which enhanced learning greatly. The cost of living in Washington was much higher than my previous residence but the surrounding wilderness areas were a great tradeoff. There are so many opportunities for recreational activities on the mountains that surround Washington. The final con is diversity, I wish there were more people of color in the program to add to discussions of diversity.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

The school is located in the city, therefore students have many amenities and options for social life. The program places great emphasis on peer learning. Cons are that it is a very competitive school and the workload is tough, but prepares you for the real world.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

I believe my graduate program offers a highly competitive environment, a highly qualified staff, and easily available resources. That being said, there is little available financial aid for my department, and there seems to be a fair amount of crime on/near campus.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Our school has not that many financial support options, so if your advisor cannot afford a TA/RA you have to pay tuition and look for your own funding.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The university is very good with student from all over the world. The faculty is very knowledgeble and and I can feel that I have entered into a good college. When it comes to security, I do see lots of news on safety issues through email newsletter and that is why I have rated it less. Also for the financial aid, there are very very less opportunities for international students.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The Prosthetics and Orthotics program at the University of Washington is fantastic. The instructors are completely committed to ensuring that the students walk out with the best education possible. They are well known within the field and encourage the students to make connection. The course load may be heavy and difficult at times, but in the end, students know that it is all in an effort to fully prepare them for clinical practice. Students walk away from the piles of homework with a sense of accomplishment and confidence, eager to build and brace limbs for their courageous and strong-spirited patients.
