    Pros

    Great way to get half of your tuition covered and decent pay per hour. Working as an RA or a TA 10 hours a week goes a long way towards making the UA affordable.

    Cons

    In my particular case, all contact was virtual and I didn't have a lot of support from supervisors. On the one hand, the flexibility was nice, but on the other, the lack of direction was a difficulty to overcome.
