Date: Dec 31 1969
Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time)
I was in the Applied Biology program at ASU, that is on the Polytechnic campus. The graduate program is very weak. In theory it sounds good and seemed very promising before I began. But since starting the program, I have received no guidance or help from faculty. The classes were satisfactory, but completing a thesis is a different story. I got absolutely no support from the school and the graduate college is impossible to work with. I have had to pay tuition for 3 semesters while I wait on thesis feedback and signatures. I am still trying to find a job (no help from ASU!) but can't seem to wrap things up with ASU. It never ends - and it's only a masters, not a PhD. I'm starting on my 4th year and still no end in sight (though I've completed and successfully defended my thesis). This was not only my experience, but others in the same program.
