Wright State University Reviews

I can't say enough good things about my time as a grad student at Wright State. The I/O psychology Ph.D. program is rigorous with knowledgeable professors who take an interest in their students. I appreciate the apprenticeship model they have. You work on research projects directly with your academic advisor, which makes learning easier and helps build professional connections.
Be advised that Wright State's undergraduate programs run very differently from its graduate programs, so this review doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of undergraduate life at Wright State.

Great grad program! Terrible for undergrad though! Extremely disorganized and lack of knowledge among staff.
The graduate school is an extremely good experience. However I felt that my time there and my return on investment was otherwise hampered by the finical crisis the school underwent. I would advise a person to attend the school, but only after they figure out the financial situation of the school.
