"Please read this to take the above reviews in context: I graduated in 2004 with a degree in Biological Sciences. The University of Notre Dame's academic rigor, the comprehensiveness of their curriculum, and the professionalism and helpfulness of their faculty are peerless. In my time as a student, I was absolutely satisfied with my interactions with the staff. As to the academic rigor, I was not personally prepared for the Notre Dame pedigree. High school was a breeze for me. My studying efforts consisted of finally doing the reading the night before and ensuring the homework was done on time. Unless you are truly of genius caliber, prepare to be weeded out if you cannot adapt to a real educational challenge. About the degree itself, the median salary in 2004 was a rough $35,000/yr based on the job searches I did. So yes, I understand the information is dated, but I state this to address the average rating in earning potential. Anyone entering biology as a field must understand that post-graduate study will likely be required to stay in the field and have a larger potential salary. Because of my lack of dedication back then, I say my satisfaction with my degree is not 5 star because I joined the military afterwards to seek a different, marketable skill set that would not be limited by my college GPA. To emphasize this: my efforts during college directly impacted the potency of my degree. Because I did not try, my degree relied on the strength of the school's name and reputation vice the work I put into it. Since I did not make effective use of my time in college, I could not unlock the fully weight of a Bachelor's of Science from U of Notre Dame. The school is a fantastic school and one you will remember always. However, there is no school worth attending if you, reader, do not put forth the requisite effort to make it mean something."

"I love Notre Dame. The beauty of the campus, the family atmosphere, the school spirit, the rigorous academics, together they form an incomparable and unforgettable experience. The religious nature of the University, and some of it's attendant rules, are not for everyone, nor its emphasis on community and service, but for those who go here, it is transformative."

"There will never be a university that can compete with ND in my eyes. I also have a doctorate from another school, but my heart belongs to the Fighting Irish. The sense of community and family there is great, the academics are excellent, the campus is beautiful... I visit once a year, and it always feels like going home."

"It was an amazing experience. Every part of the human experience was cared for at Notre Dame. I received a top-notch education in multiple fields from some of the best researchers in their fields. I developed lasting friendships with people in my dorm and across campus. I was given amazing opportunities to grow spiritually, academically, and socially."
