"This program is god awful. They have a fixed curriculum and don’t even put full sentences in their tests/prompts. They lie to you about getting the field placement of your choice. They scam money for Heath insurance. Very problematic for a social work school. Lots of discriminatory texts used."

"Don't waste your money, the Fast Track MBA program is a scam and the elective courses are only slightly better. Unprofessional teachers who have no business teaching or structuring coursework are in charge, probably because no one else will take the job. The amount of constructive feedback given is negligible and the student's best interest is not a priority. You will pay tens of thousands of dollars and regret every minute of this degree if you pursue it here, despite what the website says. You will NOT receive an "MBA TARGETED TO YOUR SPECIFIC INTERESTS" or have a positive experience trying to achieve your goals with the "DISTINGUISHED FACULTY." The graduate school is a nepotistic cesspool of fraudulent claims and academic malpractice. I wish someone would have told me this before I signed away my soul."

"I felt my degree program was very well organized and easy regarding flow of courses to complete. It was not difficult determining which courses needed to be taken and classes were available at appropriate times. My general school adviser was not that great but the resources I needed to determine my steps were readily available for me to research and plan my courses on my own. Quality of the courses were great. I felt the teachers taught up to date, relevant information in an easy to understand way. Even when the material was difficult, material given was easy to follow later on outside of class during studying. I definitely believe my education lived up the standards I've heard about it. The college itself has a comfortable clean environment, lots of outdoor space, greenery which is nice for walking to class or studying outside. There is a great variety of eating options whether with the dining room buffet, the LBC where many chain restaurants are accessible, or even several local restaurants right outside of campus. The school was also very good about offering fun events like cram jam which had music and ice cream before finals, music on the quad every Wednesday, outdoor movies. There were great stress relievers and ways to meet new people. Overall, I enjoyed my experience there and would recommend others considering it on their list of schools."

"The education was great if you really study. My cohort had a few bad eggs filled with outrage and pettiness, who prevented free exchange of ideas without judgment. They showed up late to class, were always on their phones, and only joined in the discussion to take it over and decide what was acceptable to say or believe. They bullied anyone who didn't share their exact perspective. For a profession that demands empathy and unconditional positive regard, many classmates refused to see their peers as people with a righteous mission they were willing to incur almost $100k in debt so that they could better help people. Instead, they often did whatever they could to victimize others while claiming to be victims. It was shocking to see and experience, especially in a program for social work. Maybe it'd make a little more sense in an MBA program? Social workers shouldn't behave like this."

"Tulane is a wonderful school, and really goes out of their way to support their students. I loved how small the school was, as it allowed for small class sizes and individualized attention. Being located in New Orleans was also a plus, with lots of things to do, eat, and see!"

"Tulane was an interesting experience. I don't think there's a better place to study a subject like social work, the city of New Orleans has huge health and wealth disparities. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Tulane again."

"I think the program prepared me well for the workplace, but I didn't feel like they helped me truly find what was the right fit for me. I think the classes were a little large, and there would have been more opportunities if there had been less of us."

As a result of hiring well trained professors, Tulane has received several awards for having one of the best medical and science departments with the likes of several nobel laureates being present as faculty ; additionally, the liberal arts school is known for producing well trained journalist, authors, and mathematicians.

"I am currently attending Tulane University - Houston Campus where they strive to give you the best education while taking care of their students. They highly encourage interaction between the students of various programs and graduation years, as well as with their alumni. Even being a satellite campus, they offer various seminars, programs and events to enhance your networking and grow your experiences. It is the best decision I made to go to Tulane University! Great people and amazing support!"
