Meet with students. Students can be great sources for unfiltered opinions about a program. Ask them everything: what they like and don't like, their opinion of or relationship with the faculty, if they’d recommend the program, about their student experience, and about career preparation and outcomes. Remember, to ask them about life outside the program (e.g. cost of living, recreational activities, wonderful eateries).
Talk with faculty. Learn more about the program and curriculum from their perspective. Do some prep work beforehand, paying attention to the faculty's academic background, research, and experience.
