"The pros to the MSN program at University of Toledo include: accessibility to professors, location within the community, and the flow to coursework. The cons to the MSN program at University of Toledo include: the lack of response to recommendations, the communication with students, and the scheduling of clinical hours. Overall, I would recommend this program to other nurses looking to further their education."

"This program enables students to participate in a competitive program that presents the opportunity to transfer to the University of Toledo College of Medicine as a full-time M.D. student or apply to other medical schools. Students who are determined to stay in the Toledo area and serve the patients of Northwest Ohio have a greater likelihood of remaining at the medical school. These students further the mission of the University of Toledo Medical Center which is to provide patient-centered care for a diverse and rapidly developing community. The only con of the program is the length. Similar programs are only a year in duration. This program can extend from 2-3 years depending on the amount of research and involvement a student has in the program and their academic goals."

"I love the teaching and materials of this school, the faculty members and program director are so helpful. I do not like the surrounding environments however, to get an apartment in a decent neighborhood can become a little pricey. The PA program here is one of the best for value."

"Perhaps the best part of this program is the faculty support. You are treated as a peer, and though there is definitely something like a chain of authority, your insights and additions are always treated as welcomed and effective. This program also challenges you to work independently a great deal and gives you the opportunity to lead your own class as an instructor of record in your second year which is wonderful experience. The downside of this program is almost entirely location. Toledo has charm, but it's hidden deep below all the pot-holes. While, there is some social activity you have to be willing to put in some effort to find it. The same amount of effort is needed for self-motivation. While you can always find mentoring and advising, this program puts the responsibility of finding your place in the philosophy world squarely on your own shoulders. And that's absolutely where it should be after all. You have to be able to go out into a demanding career market if you plan on sticking with the philosophy and having a program that challenges you to find your independence and instills in you serious time management skills is much needed. This program offers that and a faculty full of extremely intelligent individuals."

"The faculty and staff are fantastic and supportive of career development. Professors are accessible outside of the classroom, and even outside of office hours. They will come to student events and hang out. The upper level students are helpful to incoming students."

"UTCOM is a great program -- everyone here is trying to make sure that all of the students do their best. The faculty don't just have office hours; they usually give out their cell phone numbers in case you have a question. You won't find the stressful competitive environment usually associated with med school here. All students want their classmates to succeed and perform their best. Wonderful!"

"Tell us about your college experience.At the time in my life it was a good fit. I had a full scholarship and a lot of one on one time with the faculty members although my program was not on of the best out there.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?No. I would do something that either made more money (education doesn't pay the bills without a second job) or I would do something with more adventure, travel, outdoor education something along those lines.What advice can you offer other students?Give your self as many options as you possibly can and take advantage of everything college has to offer you will never be in a position that offers as many chances or try thing out like you have when your in college."

"I believe my graduate programs offers an affordable education from highly qualified professors. However, I do not believe the program challenges students to develop a mastery in their field of study unless they major in math, science, or technology."

"The Univeristy of Toledo is a great place to be. The Law program here is excelent! It's a small enough group that you really feel comfortable with everyone but still have the computition associated with law school. The class sizes are small which really makes it easier to get to know the professors and have time to talk with them if needed both during and outside of class. All the classes and library are in one building which is very convienent. The only con I have noticed thus far is there can be a lack of program involvement with the evening students. However, there are several ways to get desired info though the postings online or around the schoool."

"Pros are that the workload is very reasonable and yet we still learn. The instructors are also great and help out in a variety of ways. The cons are that class days are long."

"While I'm new to this school it has given me a great oppurtunity to earn my Masters. This school is great for those looking to find alternatives to a traditional school. My oppurtunity to earn my Masters from this university wouldnt be possible without the flexibility."

"My program is an excellent program, providing a high-quality education that focuses on the most recent and evidence-based technologies and interventions in treating a variety of individuals of all ages. I feel that I will be very prepared to enter the workforce in healthcare. However, the financial burden of living off-campus and dealing with the costs of graduate tuition can be difficult, as financial aid is not sufficient and program scholarships are few. Also, the university is housed within a metropolitan area and safety can be a concern. However, campus police and officials do a wonderful job of keeping students informed of events and potential dangers with cell phone and e-mail alerts."

"Pros: At UT, graduate students do come first. The faculty and staff work hard to ensure that you can accomplish your degree goals. There is an excellent intermingling of laboratories which provide for diversified expertise and aid in personal research projects. There is also good sharing of equipment between laboratories which makes completing research goals easier. Cons: It can occasionally be difficult to navigate through administration requirements. Graduation criteria change yearly without much warning so one has to stay on top of that themselves."

"Overall, our clinical psych grad program at UT is very good. The program is flexible and able to accommodate a variety of career paths. The professors are friendly, professional and care about the students. The department functions well, but the university in general seems to be less than efficient in managing paperwork and providing support services. This is a good grad program for clinical psych students that want to practice, research, or teach at a liberal arts college. Those folks looking for a tenure-track position at a research institution off the bat would probably be better off at a more prestigious university, but that's more a function of the current market for tenure-track jobs than of any shortcoming of the program. There are certainly options within the program to help prepare you for a tenure-track position. The clinical facilities themselves are fairly old and leave something to be desired, but the technology is brand-new and the quality of instruction is high. Toledo itself isn't the most glamorous of locales, but there are sufficient opportunities for distraction."
