"Challenging but fulfilling program. Support is definitely available but you have to be willing to seek it out if interested. Overall, its a wonderful program- slightly expensive but worth the commitment."

"When you graduate from the University of Pittsburgh, you earned a degree comparable to no other. The University of Pittsburgh's quality of education and reputation gives candidates an advantage when it comes to competing against other candidates for jobs. This is by far the number one perk of graduating from Pitt. Other positive attributes include a beautiful campus located in the heart of Oakland, an urban area that is a melting pot of culture. The University provides many learning opportunities outside the classroom, which is valuable for those who want to be more involved in their community."

"Great campus. Lots of fun city living. Lots of parties and extracurricular activities. I had great undergrad experience as a history major. Good classes and professors. Excellent student health and good dining and housing options. The masters in the art of teaching program, however, was a joke. Very disorganized and felt like it was just an exchange of money for a degree, not based on learning or grades earned."

"Pitt was good to me and I'm glad I went there. I think my degree is worth more now than it was when I graduated, because the school has done a good job of recruiting competitive students and supporting those students who are focused and driven."

"I liked being on a campus that was part of a larger community/city, not being isolated like a lot of rural campuses. The sciences are top notch, the prices reasonable (comparatively), and Pittsburgh is a great city to live in all around. 10/10 would do it again!"

"The University of Pittsburgh is an amazing school. There are so many fascinating research opportunities happening all the time, great sports, and quality classes. Even though it is a large school, I was shocked at how much personal attention I got from administrative staff that were making sure I got the education I desired. Pittsburgh is also the most amazing city. I moved to Pittsburgh and went to Pitt not knowing anyone else, and I would LOVE to be able to do it all again!"

"The program has many opportunities for collaborations across disciplines. The faculty seem to genuinely care about students' well-being and research goals. Annual feedback on progress within the program is very helpful. There is a strong drive to focus on research and be prolific in terms of publishing papers."

  • Degree: Counseling
"The rehabilitation counseling program is one that is rigorous and meant for the passionate. It is a small cohort that work together through the terms to accomplish the same goal; which is to graduate together with a degree that means something. The professors and advisors are nothing but supportive towards the students and are willing to do anything for the students. The workload may be strenuous but it is worth it in the end. I love the atmosphere and how friendly everyone is on campus. All of the classes are in the same building which makes everything easier. There are pros and cons with the classes being at night. This program isn't designed for the working adult but there is a way to make it work."

"The atmosphere of the university is very friendly and has a great urban feel. If you do your research on your professors you can take some really great classes that are engaging and fun. Don't get a meal plan and don't live in the dorms because it is not a great experience and you will pay a lot of money compared to what you get out of it."

"The university is great. It has all the options that an undergraduate might be interested not only academically but socially. It's located in a great city. The engineering school offers a ton of support for students to do whatever they might wish whether it's research or industry experience. They have a plethora of clubs and support services. Although anyone's college experience is what they make it, Pitt offers a great opportunity to have not only a respected college degree but a great college experience."
