    Pros

    Many opportunities are there. In some labs quality of research is high. But compared to other big universities Wayne state lacks the cutting edge research.

    Cons

    You can only jump so hight here. No matter how hard you work there is a limitation on how far you could reach in terms of research publications due to low funding.
