A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program.

Great school for law. Excellent for older students. Standards are rigorous but very rewarding.Multiple courses although not all are offered every semester. Had a great experience. Professors are very helpful and knowledgeable. Great school for serious students.

Washburn University has an outstanding graduate degree program for the school of social work. Many may not know that they offer an incentive for maintaining a high GPA in the 2nd half of the BSW program to qualify for a waiver of the first year of the graduate school program. This allows those that are successful in the undergraduate program to complete their graduate studies in 1 year and a summer semester versus attending a full 2 years of graduate school.
