    I have been working at University of Nebraska full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the university and the Psychology department. The professors, administrators, and students (both undergrads and fellow grads) are amazing! The atmosphere is very cozy and welcoming. Best of all, the department is noncompetitive in the sense, that they welcome collaboration among labs (both within and between departments). I came from a large undergrad. university with a very elitist kind of attitude to which, both the departmental staff, professors, and graduate students were fairly snobby and overly competitive among eachother. So I knew that that was not the kind of atmosphere I wanted to work in and that I would only consider attending a graduate school program that valued both success and compassion. I found exactly that upon interviewing with UNL- Psychology which made my decision to accept my offer there easy.

    Cons

    I do wish they offered more graduate-level Psychology courses, especially in Stats.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some more Professors that can teach 900-level Statistics courses so we have something to take after 942 (which is only the bare minimum of Stats training required). Also, more non-clinical graduate classes would be nice. I'd especially like a Computer Programming for Behavioral Researchers class as most of the research conducted in Psychology uses computer interfaces and that requires us to code our own experimental programs. Many of us Psychology graduate students come from Psychology not Computer Science undergraduate programs and thus lack the training needed to be able to do this.
