Major: Undecided (This Major's Salary over time)
Pros: name recognition. A few professors are rather good, but the outright hostility and neglect of the administration overwhelms that.

Cons: the school clearly does not care about students: ?health insurance is $1400/semester but does not cover ER, specialists, or anything beyond the student health center. ?there are few to no academic services for graduate students. ?as a TA, you end up providing the missing academic services for undergraduates, like advising and tutoring. ?they pay well below minimum wage, to the point that you cannot afford to live a reasonable distance away. ?you are expected not to hold any other jobs, which compounds the low pay. ?you often are expected to work on campus well past 8pm ?the academic buildings are falling apart ?the school does not provide for research grants or stipends, so you have to fund your own research ?there is a ?boy?s club? atmosphere in many departments that prevents discriminatory professors and staff from facing consequences
