    Pros

    the tuition is covered and monthly stipend is provided at an average level. So you can focus on research and dont get distracted by other factors.

    Cons

    Most graduate students get position as a teaching fellow instead of research fellow in which case you need to put more effort and time in teaching undergraduate lab courses.

    it is a little confusing for graduate students who just join the program to navigate the options to receive any kind of financial support. because there is no official instruction actively provided to students about different opportunities in the department.
