A good academic adviser is extremely important and scholarships help offset costs

I worked at Penn State University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

With a good academic adviser, you are able to work independently and on topics that excite you with advice and guidance from your adviser. If you get a good adviser, you are able to have a flexible schedule and are not required to show up from 8-5 everyday. Most graduate students will also serve as teaching assistants for various professors. Again, some professors make this an enjoyable experience, others tend to over-use their graduate students.

Cons

Cost of living is high in the area so it's hard to save much from your assistantship and funding is hard to get for certain research projects.

    I have been working at Penn State University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice people, lots of friendly coworkers and there is always something to do. When done with what I have to get done I can work on homework.

    Cons

    I have to deal with some overly religious people in this part of the country it's kind of what you get, but all in all it is note bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change everything mid year, that's just stupid.
