    Good place to do grad school

    Pros

    Excellent professors and sense of community. Good health care coverage.

    Cons

    Very stressful experience in grad school. The workload is really heavy, and the idea that we study "20 hours a week" is ridiculous. We basically study full time and have a 20 hour RA or TA assignment on top of that. Some professors are really great and understanding, and let you do less while others want to squeeze every single hour out of you. Poorly paid.
