Degree: Data Science Masters

I recently completed my Online Master of Science in Data Science at Northwestern University's School of Professional Studies, and I want to list out things I wish I knew before applying to this program. First, there are other Data Science Master Programs at a significantly lower price. My final price at NW was about $60,000 while other schools offer the same program for about $10,000. In my opinion, Northwestern University's Online Master of Science in Data Science program is about the same quality... Read More

Degree: Counseling

I recently graduated from Counseling@Northwestern and I will echo the reviews that mention regret. For me, the selling point of this particular program was the "dedicated placement team" that promised to find practicum/internship sites for students. I felt that the placement team actually made things quite difficult for me, and in many cases, prolonged the student experience indefinitely by not finding sites within a reasonable time frame (if at all).

Degree: Data Science

I'm a current student in an NU SPS Master's program. For the most part the experience has been disappointing considering the amount of money I've spent.

Degree: Project Management

Horrible school. No one lets you know how much you know until they kick you out of school and then continue to charge you for classes. No one could tell me an honest answer of how much I owed them and when I could continue attending classes again. This school should be investigated and uncredited. I will never recommend this school to anyone.
