Pathetic service to Alumni after graduation! The onlySuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
Pathetic service to Alumni after graduation! The only thing they are interested in is to get more money out of its Alumni once they graduate. They charge more than the national average, and then want even more after graduation. Apparently, they are part of some student success initiatives, but their intentions do not support that association at all! Please beware and decide with "life after graduation" in mind!

Question
Your on your own.BrightPolitical Science
Your on your own. Advisors and departments will advise you one way and then not honor what they told you to do even if you have it in writing. Administration will pass you around until you give up. Additional semester needed to graduate after they didn't honor what they said.

Question
My review pertains to the Cell and MolecularBiology
My review pertains to the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program at The University of Texas at Austin. I had a bad experience there. In my opinion, the program did not care about students' progress or well being, and the program was more focused on obtaining results that could be published. I realize that in most places "getting the job done" has more importance than the well being of the people who are doing the job, but my experience at UT really took this distinction to a new extreme. I would only recommend going into the PhD program here if you are at the very top of the game in terms of doing research and working in philosophy, and you've had a lot of experience in research before enrolling. The Graduate Program accepted these people, as well as many other people, and I saw that people who were not at the extreme top of the game often were kept there in situations that did not benefit them, or were outright harmful to them.
