    Pros

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a good university to get a PhD from. It has a strong research environment with good training and collaboration opportunities between departments (CALS is particularly good!). Professors and staff are knowledgeable and experienced. The overall Wisconsin community is friendly.

    GREAT health benefits! It's worth it to study here just for the benefits!

    Cons

    My experience here is as a graduate student. You basically have no life outside of your research. Your work hours never end. The stipend is minimal.
