Make sure you have a plan of attack if you intend to pursue doctorate studies at this university and invest time getting know the environment. As a prior college of science student, I can attest the many part time doctorate students; so the curriculum, research, and pace reflects this aspect. Look at course schedules and get an idea when courses show up, otherwise you might be surprised at how long you'll have to wait to complete your core requirements. This is NOT acceptable as a serious full-time student!! To be clear, some departments do not have an effective graduate student program to get a student from courses to research in a fair amount of time.

As a prospective student pay attention to this and ask questions before you commit!
