Hofstra University Graduate Reviews

17 reviews
Pros: The student body is very collaborative and welcoming. Cons: The school doesn't really offer much in terms of scholarships or assistantships for grad students . Additionally, they used to give graduate students free health insurance, but now they do not, with the exception of medical and foreign students.
