Pros

Some professors are great; students are cool people; lots of flexibility in your hours. In one lab in particular, I worked with a bunch of undergraduates and grad students, and we all got along very well.

Cons

Some professors are hard to reach or non-responsive, but that

Advice to Management

Dear Psych department: please pay your RAs! Even during the school year! Ha ha. But all in all, I'm very happy with my research assistant experience at Tufts--I'm even presenting a poster on my summer work this October!

    Pros

    Grants: Graduate students becoming research assistant usually after first year. (Depends on the field, experimental areas in good shape)
    If you need to travel due to your research you are paid extra, most of the universities does not do this.
    Small but specialized faculty
    Management is concerned with graduate student needs, it is very easy to contact with them. They act quickly to solve the problem

    Cons

    Small Department
    Not much different research options, it is good only if you are interested in a specific area
    Offered courses are limited. Most of the students need to wait until a new elective course to be offered to finish course work

    Advice to Management

    Management is good. They will be perfect if they could be a bigger department with more research options.
