    I have been working at UC Merced

    Pros

    It is a new school therefore some aspects are still on development. The engineering buildings are new and helps the graduate students in the lab to focus on their work.

    Cons

    Merced itself is a small and somewhat boring city to live in. Also for a graduate student in EECS there few options regarding classes.
