        Graduate Questions
· Your Department
Completion Students entering the PhD program leave with a PhD -- not a Masters degree.
Politics Your Graduate school actually about the science of research -- not bogged down with irrelevant politics.
Research Quality The research that takes place in your Graduate school is of Nobel prize quality -- not Mad scientist quality.
Project Involvement It is easy to get involved in research projects
Funding There is sufficient funding for your research.
Not Errand Runner You are able to focus on completing your thesis -- you are not a lapdog, constantly running errands.
Work Level You are working hard for an attainable goal (PhD) and completion date -- not just floating with no forseeable time of completion.
Payment method Alternative payment program such as Teaching Assistanceships are readily available and easy to get involved in.
Payment Sufficiency Compared to the cost of living, the alternative compensation programs (TA, etc) provide you sufficient resources to live off of.
Competitiveness Everyone in your field works together for common understanding and progress -- not against each other.
Quality of Courses Your education at this University (thus far) has been worth your time and money.
Faculty Accessibility Thesis faculty is available & helpful to you -- not absorbed into personal research.
Usefulness In the large scheme of things, your research is actually useful.
· The University
Individual Value This University treats you as a person, not just as a number in the factory.
Friendliness This bunch is one friendly crew.
Perceived Campus Safety You feel safe both day and night.
Campus Aesthetics This University is beautifully planned with abounding trees and flowers -- not haphazardly placed concrete.
Campus Maintenance Windows are fixed, bathrooms kept in order, recreational facilities maintained -- nothing is in a 'falling apart' condition.
University Resource Use University resources provide opportunities for students, through facilities and programs, to learn and grow -- instead of being spent on 'proUniversity' propaganda.
· Social / Interactive
Extracurricular Activities Extracurriculars (sports, clubs, student groups, etc ) are easy to get involved with -- not exclusive or of low quality.
Scholastic Success Scholastic success (exams, homework, projects, etc.) is dependent upon understanding -- not 'random' or dependent upon being able to 'work the system'.
Surrounding City There are many things to do in your city -- not a small, isolated campus with no night life.
Social Life There is a great social life and atmosphere, always things to do & people to do them with.
Community There is a strong sense of community between *all* grad students -- not just in own department, but between departments as well.
