Not sure if you recently say the news, but there is a new Graduate Program search site, www.graduateprograms.com.The website will provide a space for current students to share their thoughts about their graduate program through a Rate and Review system. Students will choose the number of stars that accurately correspond with their opinion about aspects of the program’s athletics, campus housing, etc. and then leave a short comment. Graduate Programs will list student comments and starred reviews so students can read them when they’re making their decisions about their graduate program choices. Think of it as a forward-thinking marriage between the Princeton Review and Yelp.
Students who Rate and Review their program will be entered to win a $1,000 Graduate School Scholarshipaward toward their graduate school tuition. These $1,000 scholarships will be awarded once per semester (four times per year). Understanding that recent graduates have much to contribute to the conversation, Graduate Programs also allows those who graduated in the last five years to participate in the Rate and Review system and use the scholarship toward loan repayment.
