I am happy to have met my mentor and conduct research within his lab, but I am unhappy with the institution. My department has a bias and wants students only to go into academic research. I find little support in my department for my careers goals. Luckily, my mentor is supportive.

Very important isssue is Wayne State provides very poor stipend support around 20K. Comparable schools offer at least 25K. Wayne State is within the bottom quartile of schools nationwide for stipend support. Combine this with tenured faculty (science-related) who do not have funding and stopped publishing, it becomes difficult to find a good lab. I had to attend a local university due to personal obligations and wish I would have choose the University of Michigan.
