    I have been working at University of Wisconsin-Madison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a highly ranked engineering school in a nice town. While the campus is large (and so is the size of the student body), the graduate student environment is more personable and inviting. There are numerous professional development workshops and seminars to further graduate student's careers.

    Cons

    The admittance to the graduate school is not transparent. You must meet the minimum requirements for the department before being admitted, even if you know a faculty member will sponsor you. Because of this, I believe many students do not choose to attend UW-Madison because the school either waits to long to extend official offers or never gives applicants a final decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Departments should organize events where applicants can visit campus before making their final decision. There should be more opportunities for students to TA; as of now, graduate students can only TA if they need the financial support.
