    Former Employee - Biology Grad Student  in  La Jolla, CA
    Former Employee - Biology Grad Student in La Jolla, CA

    I worked at UC San Diego full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Wide selection of faculty to work with, beautiful geographic location, decent stipend, generally large incoming grad student class sizes allow for social comradery, excellent peer mentoring program, wonderful fitness classes at student prices

    Cons

    Need more relevant courses offered - statistics, biotech business skills, etc., program length is too long, parking is expensive and hard to find even if you do have a permit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep grad students longer than they need to be kept to further your own career at their expense.
