After the visit I really feel good about the program, school, and location! I'm definitely attending. For me, they have exactly the research I'm looking for and while it is a top school, the grads weren't dead inside. They genuinely seemed happy and enjoyed the program and their PI's. Everyone was transparent about the work load and said that it's a lot in your first year, but worth it. Also, there's tons of nature around, which is a big plus for me! All of these points were things that I just didn't see at other schools I visited. Plus the living stipend is fantastic for the area! I will be at TATP (the TA teaching program) July 10th if anyone else is attending, hit me up!
