The UConn program is extremely competitive to getJun 20 2014Education
The UConn program is extremely competitive to get into for a reason. It's a fantastic experience. You learn theory, conduct assessment, AND work in the field. Make no mistake - you WILL work hard for the two years you are here. It will be worth it. You'll grow as a person, realize that you can do things you didn't think possible before, and you'll gain the confidence needed to work with students during their darkest hours.

The faculty and site supervisors truly care about the program. HESA students are known throughout campus as being hardworking and bright and creating great opportunities for undergraduate students on campus.

The cohort system isn't for everyone. When I was applying to schools, I really wanted a cohort to have a network of people. Unfortunately, I didn't click with the other people in my year. That didn't diminish my experience, however. I made friends elsewhere because UConn is a friendly place. I have no doubt that when I graduate, I will find a job. After all, there's a 100% placement rate.

Never join University of Connecticut if you areApr 29 2007Animal Studies
Never join University of Connecticut if you are serious about research in your life. this university sucks and it might be good for undergraduate not for research level. Lots of problem related to funding of research and unavailibity of good facility at campus. I am telling from my own experience and this university if crippeled by very poor administration. Univeristy is known to fire bright faculties, who has published research paper in Science and PNAS, just because they do not yeild to stupid administrative system.
