"As an Iranian applicant who was forced to decline her admission from university of Findlay, Ohio, I'd like to write about my experience with this university!!! They discriminate and treat internationals quite unfairly!!!! Firstly, they offered me around $15,000 per year scholarship in my admission letter in order to manage my tuition fees, then they CHANGED THEIR MIND!!!!! and reduced this amount of scholarship to $10,000 per year. Which was quite shocking itself and when I asked them about the reason they decided to reply my email after about 2 weeks!!!! which is quite unusual again, telling me that I was supposed to present IELTS band score 7.5!!!!!!!!!!! While, it is mentioned clearly in the university's official website and my admission letter that , in order to get accepted directly to the university course they require IELTS band score 6.0. I presented IELTS band score 7.0!!!!!! They treated me unfairly and wasted my time! So I decided to write about it, in order to spread awareness among people like me who are considering studying in the US and seeking funds and scholarships."

"If you like a small school with personalized instruction and professors who really care, The University of Findlay is the place for you. The Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Writing program taught me so much about the field I want to someday be a part of. The course-load is difficult, yet worth it. There are classes specifically for those who want to go on for a Ph.D. and electives for those who want to pursue a different career using their MARW background. I can attest that the MARW program prepares students for Ph.D. program admittance, as I was accepted into the schools I applied to. I even received funding and will start in the fall. I am confident that the MARW program has prepared me well for my Ph.D. and beyond."

"The University of Findlay is a small, liberal arts school that makes students feel like family. Faculty and staff are always willing to help students with not only their coursework but also out of class activities that will help them reach their full potential."

"Findlay was a great fit for me. It is a small, intimate school where the professors actually care and are available. I made many connections and had wonderful internship opportunities through my academic work at UF. I would recommend it to anyone considering going there. I am still in contact with some of my professors who write reference letters for me to this day."

"The University of Findlay has provided me with a truly nurturing environment to pursue my Pharm D degree. All of my professors are more than willing to help with study tips, homework assignments or even life or career advice. I have been able to excel in the classroom and have been provided with ample leadership opportunities. The campus is extremely safe with security patrolling constantly. The College of Pharmacy is like a second family to me and I could not imagine another place to work towards such a rigorous degree."

"The University of Findlay Occupational Therapy program has an extremely dedicated faculty that is committed to helping students reach their full potential. They are always willing to take time out to help students and are extremely knowledgeable with a variety of clinical experience to share. The program is intensely focused on developing evidence-based, client-centered, and culturally competent future practitioners. I have been very satisfied with my time here, and I feel that I will be very well prepared as an entry-level occupational therapist."

"At The University of Findlay, I was able to complete my undergraduate degree and graduate degree in six years versus seven years at most universities. Another pro is the small class sizes, which allow for more individualized attention and a close knit group. A current con of the physical therapy graduate program is the recent hiring of many new professors, however given time they will become experienced educators. Since The University of Findlay is a private university, it is quite costly and there are few graduate assistantships available."

"A small college like U of F doesn't have nearly the resources to offer students as larger state schools such as financial aid services or career placing programs. I also felt like the education was far inferior when compared to other institutions. Lastly, unless you are a pharmacy or equine major, you should strongly consider going elsewhere for your education. The cost of a private college is not even close to being worth it. 5 years out, I still owe over $50,000."

"This program allowed me to earn my bachelors and masters while continuing to work through the weekend program. It was a heavy course load only meeting on weekends, but a great experience overall."

"Findlay is a very safe and nice Camus full of caring and experienced professors. The physical therapy program is well known and provides students with all the knowledge they need to go into a career in physical therapy. The tuition is expensive, but it is worth it for the education you receive. I would highly recommend this school for all those interested in physical therapy or any other health profession, such as pharmacy or physician assistant."

"The pros of the Occupational Therapy graduate program at the University of Findlay offers both traditional and weekend programs that really cater to the needs of the student in pursuit of their master's of occupational therapy (MOT). The traditional program is set up as a bachelors-masters program that only takes 5.5 years to complete. At the end of the fourth year, the student will graduate with a bachelors of health science with emphasis on occupational therapy. The cons of this program is that with the combined bachelors-masters program, a bachelors degree in health science with emphasis on occupational therapy is not a helpful degree. Other universities' occupational therapy programs require a bachelors degree in any field of study before entering into their graduate school."

"Pros: The class sizes are small enough that you receive hands on learning. You get exposure in different clinical settings. Cons: You receive basically no financial aid. Some of the instructors are difficult to work with. The communication within the department is sub-par at best."

"The University of Findlay is a small school that allows you to be a person rather than just a number. The faculty has the ability to get to know the students on a more personal level and are also more accessible to the students if they need help. Findlay itself is a smaller town and doesn't have a whole lot to do but the on campus events are pretty fun. The University of Findlay is a private school so it tends to be a little more expensive but the faculty in the financial aid office are wonderful and do everything they can to help out."

"The con is that the field I am studying is highly competitive and we are given a lot of information in a short amount of time. The pros is that the class size is small so I get more one on one contact with the professors."

"This is an excellent graduate program. The faculty make themselves available to the students based on the students' schedules, so that they may discuss the material, ask questions, etc. Also, there are job fairs offered at least twice a year for students seeking full-time and part-time employment and summer internships, in addition to other opportunities for summer internships."
