| I loved my teachers at Duquesne University. They were extremely helpful and informative. However, the professors were not worth the terrible administration. The administration, especially the dean is not student-focused, and constantly made my life difficult. I had to pay 2700 dollars for a class I did not take, and was refused credits for a class I did take. Furthermore, other graduate students in my cohort had to rewrite papers due to professors' lack of organization. |
I urge you not to attend the school. There are many other schools that can provide an excellent education, but will fight for their students, rather than fight against them.

| DU law provides a top rate legal education at a reasonable price. The emphasis is on practical legal skills; thus students are prepared to practice law in the real world. When I entered the work world and throughout my career, I have been just as prepared, if not more, to compete with students from so-called "top schools" |

I work in industry, employed by a large global company; my role within my organization is supporting IP networks. I've been to two other universities and I've also taught in technical colleges.|
Business school's MSISM program is without merit. Many of the instructors do not hold a PhD, but are so-called "industry professionals". However, in most cases, they do not specifically have any special knowledge useful for the classes that they teach.
Graduate classes are mixed with undergraduate classes due to low enrollment/cost cutting.
For a supposedly "technical" program, there are few instructors with a technical background. Most are business-school instructors who have taken a seminar in order to teach a given class.
Program is rife with menial projects that don't expect a synthesis-level understanding of the material. Often, most projects are graded on quantity, not quality.
Most students are still suckling at their parents' teat; a very immature student base that doesn't want to work--and the faculty has in many cases bent to their will watering down the quality of the program.
Though the programs are aimed at the working professional, most instructors don't take into account the schedule of the older working adult. A person with a full-time job, children, and several external responsibilities. Group projects are assigned as a matter of practice with little regard to the notion that with most students in class three or more nights a week, there is very little time to complete such projects.
I am NOT pleased with Duquesne. Go to Robert Morris and save your money!

| This lawschool is abysmal. NO ONE should apply here. Bar passing rates for the February 2003 and July 2003 were awful. Only Widener beat us to the bottom. Professors are blaming the students, students are fed up with the arrogance and the socratic method. This university is a very poor value for the dollar spent. |
