Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

I very much dislike the poor human quality of those who lead the chemistry school nowadays. I have no problem with accomplishing higher goals but the routes they pretend to take to accomplish such goals, in my opinion are not the right ones. My point is,If you want someone working along with you to pursue some goals, you try to make them feel nice and comfortable on their roles, you do not try to make them feel slaves.

The pros are that it is a highly respected program, great teachers, and amazing connections. The cons are that it is very difficult to get into and extremely competitive.

Degree: Religious Studies

I feel that the pros of my graduate program are what would be typical for any graduate program that students consider as favorable qualities in a school. We have professors that are eager to help. The way our facilities are laid out encourage community and relationships between classmates, faculty and staff. Our classes are seminar styled which gives us the opportunity to interact with each other and the subject we are covering in that class period. The campus is extremely safe - for example, there is adequate lighting all around campus. The cost of living is extremely affordable for graduate students on a tight budget. We get to hear and learn from top leaders in the field. The professors and graduate program demands a large amount of work from the students but then again, as one of our professors says, "This is graduate school." Cons: some of the seminar classes start to look like student lead discussions instead of the professor teaching the class. The Waco area is not the best of areas outside of the "Baylor Bubble." Transportation is limited to your own car, bike, or feet. There are a few buses that run around town but not easily accessible.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoy the Vocal Performance program in which I am currently enrolled. The classes are generally geared toward teaching us valuable, real-world skills that we will need, instead of some theoretical knowledge that is only valuable in academia. Beyond that, the program is somewhat in flux right now. We are losing two teachers to retirement and bring on two more. We've also recently hired a new opera director and he is quickly earning a reputation for being difficult to work with and for being a liar. On the whole, this program turns out very talented and employable musicians.
