"This program may be the newest masters program in the small world of 12 other graduate programs for Orthotics and Prosthetics, but redesigned curriculum and novel approach to residency placements exemplifies the spirit of innovation and collaboration that drew me to the program. The faculty genuinely loves sharing their knowledge with us and I couldn't ask for a better group of people to be my friends and colleagues."

"Baylor College of Medicine offers students exceptional instruction in the clinical sciences, while also supporting them as they gain hands on experience in history taking and the physical examination in community clinics. There are endless opportunities to get involved in volunteer activities in the community and leadership opportunities within the academic community. The school really emphasizes maintaining a life-study balance, which is extremely helpful given how much material there is to learn in medical school. The one aspect where the program could improve is on expanding the diversity of the medical school class."

"BCM graduate program in Developmental Biology is a very challenging program that pushes students to succeed. Although it is very competitive, no student is left behind and mentors ensure each student's success"

"Excellent education, cool people, strong clinical affiliates. Cheap tuition that is underwritten by the state. Negatives:weak financial aid packages, technology/IT struggles, can be difficult to commute and park."

"Everything is great, but I feel that the program could be a little more organized. No one seems to really know what is going on- mainly the classes were very unorganized and taught in an unordered way. This is being worked on currently, though."

"Good education - work load is a lot, but that is to be expected. Financial aid is poor, but thankfully tuition is pretty low."

"Baylor College of Medicine has all the resources of any first-tier university. What's uniquely valuable is the prime location directly in the middle of the Texas Medical Center, a complex of dozens of hospitals and research institutions. This facilitates unrivaled levels of collaboration, with researchers at places such as Rice University, UT Houston, Texas Children's Hospital, and the University of Houston. I have loved my time here, with world-class scientists, friendly and open colleagues, and a clean campus with beautiful weather. Houston has every entertainment, sport, or cultural pursuit desirable, as the fourth largest city in the United States, plus a few extras like alligator reserves and NASA. I highly recommend BCM to any prospective neuroscientist."

"The department administration are not very helpful, will fail to transfer classes because they do not know how to do so, and have made insensitive comments about nontraditional students such as older students, minority students and female students that are pregnant or have children. Further, sexual harassment (inappropriate comments about women's bodies) are tolerated as long as they are from other women (especially if that person comes from a wealthy family that donates to the college) and students from families that donate to the department are given an easier ride."
