Englewood, NJ (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

To help prospective Mathematics grad students better evaluate their options for continuing education, Graduateprograms.com compiled and analyzed over 40,000 ratings posted on the site by students attending more than 1,200 different graduate programs nationwide.

As a follow up to its recently published Fall 2013 Top Mathematics Grad Programs, Graduateprograms.com is pleased to release its “Dean’s List” of top Mathematics grad programs in the areas of career support, faculty accessibility & support, financial aid and workload as defined below:

Career Support: Quality of career planning resources and support received both during graduate school studies and after.
Faculty Accessibility & Support: Faculty responsiveness and support outside of the classroom.
Financial Aid: If you received Financial Aid from your school, how pleased are you with your package (grants, scholarships, etc.) and the application process?
Workload: Is the workload generally manageable? Is the work pertinent, practical, and constructive or just busy work?

The ensuing rankings were compiled from student ratings and reviews posted on Graduateprograms.com from Sept. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2013 using a 10 star system (with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best).

Methodology
Graduateprograms.com reaches current and recent graduate students through scholarship entries as well as social media platforms. These program rankings cover a period from September 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013. Graduateprograms.com assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school. Rankings cover a variety of student topics, such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid, and quality of network.

For a given graduate program, rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories. These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program, i.e., business and management. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that graduate program.
