With my admissions coming up in the next months, I recently began seriously considering Soka. I love so many things about it - the small class sizes, atmosphere, travel abroad, academics, etc. and think it would be a great fit! The only major concern I have with it (and it is pretty major) is the success of Soka students after they graduate. I haven’t been able to find a lot of data about alumni (or reliable data, for that matter) and I was wondering if Soka grads had good opportunities, considering this is a relatively new school? Does the Soka name hold up when looking for jobs and the such? Would a Soka student be able to compete with someone from a more established/older institution?
Moreover, I want to go to med school. I know that Soka is establishing the Life Sciences program this year, and it sounds pretty impressive from what I’ve read about it, but I still have my reservations about it in terms of how successful it will be in getting students into med school. Has Soka been able to produce good med school students so far? Is it a good school for pre-professional paths and the such?
(Also: I am considering going to Japan after graduation, so I’m hoping Soka will be a good education if I want to do this?!)
Thank you to whoever reads/responds to this and stay safe!
