"Really good program. Great networking opportunities. Lots of free events, seminars and talks students can go to. Professors are amazing. Very expensive. Need to make sure that you can afford it. The Career Services is not very organized with keeping records of alums, like where are they working now, how much were they earning etc."

"Distance learning allows me to schedule my lessons at times convenient to me. Yes, I have a time frame to complete the assignments, but I like the freedom to study at times appropriate to me. Contact with the professors and staff is convenient also. Quick feedback on assignments and grades. At this time, I find not problems associated with the program."

"It is a good program, with very knowledgeable faculty. Facilities are great, and the environment of the city helps a lot to focus on school and develop the social life among the students. As improvements, the level of the courses could be higher, and faculty should use more simulations programs."

"Duke is a great place to go to graduate school. The multiple neuroscience programs have recently formed a consortium so that it is a larger, more collaborative community, with bigger and better social events. Durham is also a growing city that is becoming increasingly student-friendly and fun, with a lot of up and coming restaurants and bars."

"Duke is academically outstanding and the campus is beautiful. The city of Durham is coming back to life after suffering an economic crisis with the loss of its tobacco industry, so despite the re-developments there can still be issues of safety in some parts of town."
