SUNY College at Buffalo is a decent school with many opportunities and available faculty (Economics department, School of Natural and Social Sciences).
This is probably the best thing I remember. Faculty aren't consulting somewhere for a lot of money when you need them and I learned most things during office hours with my professor.
There are many returning students, some veterans, and a variety of international students.

| My ratings are for the biology department. Graduate students stick to the department they are working in. I do not know any non-bio grad students. This department is great! Everyone is laid back and helpful. The TA position is great. It pays your tuition, and gives you a stipend. It is not enough to live off of, but at least you don't have to pay for your degree!|

I was one of those high achieving students who actually planned and worked to have my education paid before arriving to the campus. I was successful.|
Be aware of Buffalo State's policies towards graduate student involvement and specialized programs that actually hurt professional development. Be cautious about a department using strong psychological and clinical practices without oversight from a professional association. Be aware that crime does happen on campus and that the majority of graduate students are working professionals. Staff services are not going to help you if you are in a specialized program.
Do not attend this university if you seeking a stable experience in which to learn and grow. It will NOT allow you to do that.
If you think I am lying or making this response up, all of this crap happened to me! And when a fellowship fails to pay a living amount and restricts work study opportunities, institutional policy prevents personal and professional growth.
Do NOT attend this college if you are seeking a traditional graduate student experience.

| This college is very frustrating. The financial aid and graduate studies office are very tough to deal with. I have had more problems with this college in the last 4 months than my whole undergraduate career (which was, obviously, at another college). I dread going there every day, not only because of some of the classes, but the fact that there have been so many warnings of a variety of attacks on campus. I would never recommend anyone go here. I have considered transferring, but didn't get to it in time. |
