Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2023

The University of Wisconsin Madison School of Medicine and Public Health is, in my opinion, one of the best medical schools in the U.S. They have an exceptional curriculum that focuses on clinical experience and teamwork skills, which they are constantly improving. In addition to that, they have nearly a thousand student groups that can help you learn more about nearly any aspect of medicine.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2021

I am extremely satisfied with my current enrollment at the University of Wisconsin Madison Pharmacy School. Not only does the program give its students the knowledge and resources to excel in their careers but encourages and welcomes students to find their niche in the field of pharmacy. The faculty at this pharmacy program are known world wide for their research and impact in the field of pharmacy which can make them nerve wracking to talk to from a students perspective. However, from personal experience, I found out that faculty admire students with similar interests and want to mentor students and help them reach their career goals. Additionally, this program values student opinions, as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin, it was difficult to feel that my course reviews as a student mattered; in pharmacy school the faculty and program really listen and make changes to their academia according to student feedback. For example, one class was made into two classes after students did poorly in one portion of a class. The students felt that it poorly reflected their knowledge of the rest of the course. I really believe this institution has offered me an invaluable experience during my time at pharmacy school and I have never felt more cared for as a student.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2011

I am very thankful of my degree. I was able to get a job right away after graduation. I worked in my field of study. I did find out that I will not get paid enough to make a living, so I decided to go back to school and get my Masters degree in vocational rehabilitation counseling.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2010

College can be a success or a failure beyond getting a degree or not, all depending on the attitude of you as the student. You are there to get an education, so make sure you do. It's not about the grades, or skimming by to get a piece of paper, but taking advantage of being around knowledgeable people who are there to help you learn.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

UW- Madison has a great school of social work program. I never lived on campus so I don't have a great perspective on campus life.
4.2 out of 5.0

Offers a world class education, though the political climate creates uncertainty for underprivileged students and professors' retention.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2009

The University of Wisconsin Madison prepared me for working in a school environment. They were able to incorporate the medical model with the education model in order to make us the best teachers we could be. Through their programs they incorporated in class, as well as, in the field study where we could implement the strategies we learned in the classroom.
