Pros

There is a diverse group of faculty with a broad range of research interests. Each professor has their own advising unique style, hence it is difficult to relate my personal experiences to others. If one is not satisfied with their adviser, they can always switch, and there are so many great people here to find to work with.

Cons

The graduate pay is not as great. Career services here are always very busy so one has to primarily rely on themselves to get a job. Also, one has to be willing to self motivate themselves to work long hours if they hope to graduate within four years.

    Pros

    Research culture is very translational focused, with availability of core facilities and external partnerships. Faculty are easily approachable, and there is great diversity amongst students and staff.

    Cons

    There is high turnover in staff, so it would be better if they were able to train staff well for retention. This would help with administrative tasks and logistics.
