The professors have real world experience that are related to what they teach. They can apply to what they have experienced in the field to the classroom that will prepare the students for life after school. Part of the graduate program will involve a segment of a real world study over summer. The program is highly competitive with funding given only to those of the highest grades, leaving some other students without the opportunity to advance themselves in their field of study

This program depends completely on the advisor you work with. If your advisor is good, you will have an excellent experience, and if they are bad, your experience of grad school will be awful. Overall, the program does well to prepare us for jobs after school.

I am in a Clinical Psychology PhD program. I love the quality of clinical training here. Supervisors are very talented, patient, inspiring, and actually give constructive criticism. We have a training clinic on site, which is a big plus. My program provides access to quality clinical placements within the community for which I don't have to compete with other universities. I really feel that overall environment is very supportive and I feel like they help me grow as a clinician and a researcher. The cons: their scheduling of classes is a bit odd. Some classes are only offered every couple of years, so by the time they offer it, it may become difficult getting into the class. In another program where I got my MA, I've never experienced difficulties getting into a graduate class. Another con would be location. It's located pretty much in the middle of nowhere, so if you are coming from a big city, it may take a while to get used to it. However, if you have a car, it's not an issue. we are also within a driving distance to much more exciting cities: Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Columbus, Cincinnati. 6 hour drive to Niagara Falls. So if you are determined, you can definitely find exciting things to do. Overall, I love my program. While there are always little things that can be better, having experience in a different graduate program, I really appreciate the quality of training and the environment of this one.

Overall, good faculty support and strong learning environment. The location is probably the biggest downside, as there's not much going on in this little town!

They make it easy to go to classes and to get to places you need, however i feel that the teachers could be better. 99% of my teachers have not actually been in the field of study so they dont really know what they are talking about. Everything is based on statistics and statistics will NOT be helpful when I am on the road in real life situations.
