    Bang for the buck

    Touro offers scholarships and incentives for most students and military families. This is a non-profit school which is also regionally accredited. The online format is a convenient way for busy adults to further their education and careers.

    Food and Dining

    I can cook myself meals at my own discretion while I do my work.

    Dorm Life

    It is an online program which allows me to stay in the comfort of my own home.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is suited for those who want an in-depth study of the information but at the same time, are not consumed with mindless busy work. The material in which they choose is selective, students are expected to have research skills in order to provide the proper sourcing to defend their work. There is a lot of writing, so if you are lacking in that area it is best to sharpen your skills beforehand.

    Tips for prospective students

    This school is not for those who need face-to-face interaction for motivation. Your professors expect you to be responsible for your work, your research and your ability to understand the material while also applying it. This school does not baby or treat anyone like a child. Do not expect your professors to cater to you if your grammatical skills are not up to par. Graduate students are expected to provide graduate-level work.

    In three sentences

    Great school for long-distance learners and busy parents wanting to further their education. I have been wanting to work on a master's for some time however, I have not had the opportunity since I am a busy mom who also works. Touro has allowed me to go forward with my academic goals and provides a comprehensive program for those who are self-starters and motivated to apply themselves.

    Great for these types of students

    students with a less-than-stellar work ethic may like tuw.

    Bang for the buck

    i spend most of my time trying to fix administrative issues rather than studying. i have to find alternate sources for articles since i cannot acces some of them through the tuw library. the lack of an internal email system is a huge hindrance.

    i do not reside on campus

    Academic Rigor

    there seems to be no standards in terms of formatting. i thought apa was the format of choice but no one but me seems to do any formatting and no one cares. for "full time" classes, the rigor is very light.

    Tips for prospective students

    be ready to get the runaround from the administrative offices since they don't talk to each other. also, tuition is way too high for what you are getting.

    In three sentences

    none of the admin departments talk to each other. you don't have access to quite a few articles from the online library unless you pay for them. there is no university-based email system.
