immersion Posted May 22, 2013 Share Posted May 22, 2013 The grad school is pushing students out and raising tution in order to increase its rankings. This means that folks who have been here for four or five years now have to pay twice as much tution as previous years or have to withdraw from the school for two years and return with a finished dissertation. These decisions were made without consulting department heads or graduate students. It's a slash and burn model that is, unfortuately, pro forma at UVA. You never know what new "ideas" the administration will brainstorm or the consequences of those ideas for your livelihood, scholarly or otherwise. DONT COME TO UVA.
