      Undergraduate RA Experience

      Pros

      I really enjoyed the support I got from senior team members and the many learning opportunities I was offered during my time.

      Cons

      Transitioning from an undergraduate research assistant to a graduate RA is extremely difficult. I would absolutely stay if I could, but the university is making it too difficult for my supervisor to hire me.

      Office staff is consistently disorganized, takes too long to process paperwork, is unclear about what documents etc they need from you, and few staff seem to have clear understanding of all of the school's policies.
