Northwestern University Graduate Reviews

6 reviews
Northwestern is a school I am beyond proud to be a part of. The reputation of the school is immaculate, no surprise given the experience I have had at NU. The professors are incredible. The campus is beautiful. Evanston is a perfect setting, and the downtown Chicago campus could not have a better location and setting. The academics are competitive, yet that should be expected from a top University. The professors greatly care about the students and want everyone to succeed. It was here or Stanford, or Columbia, and I am very happy I made the choice I did.

I haven't started yet at Northwestern but I will be attending this fall. So far, my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. All the faculty is very supportive and kind, and the students seem fairly diverse. Can't wait to get to Chicago in September.
I attend the school of continued education online and received a masters in predictive analytics. For an online program, the technology to interact with the students and teachers was good. The exposure to industry softwares was top notch. Highly recommend
