Degree: Higher Education

The pros are excellent academic reputation, great faculty that support students, and excellent classwork that prepares students for success post-graduation. I cannot think of any cons.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

MS in Computer Science is a very intensive degree course. Professors are good and campus is very beautiful. The graduate student office staff is not helpful at all in deciding what courses you should choose. Enrollment system is very bad. Academic counselling for graduate students is very bad. You are own your own while deciding what courses to choose. For someone who is fresh out of college, choose courses wisely.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Your experience depends on your understanding of how a PhD program "should" go. If you've never gotten a PhD before or known people who have been through the process, it will be hard, if not impossible, to navigate through the hoops one has to jump through. The standards are not consistent student-to-student. Socially, it helps to be in a committed relationship from the start. The town itself is great!!! Diversity means excellent restaurants. City (free for students) and campus (free for everyone) transportation are the best!!! There are reports of some crime, but I've rarely felt unsafe walking home or to my car in the middle of the night.

Excellent school. All I can say work hard. Learn things, stay focused and build good relations. Excellent but very busy faculty - take appointments to meet them.

IUs Bioinformatics program is on the cutting edge and the faculty understands the importance of providing a solid foundation while focusing on topics that will remain relevant.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020

Technically an EEB program housed in the biology department. A great, well-rounded program. You do have to take a larger than average number of credits, but the teachers are great and doing great research.

This program could be better, but there are good connections with newer faculty. No research funding opportunities, unfortunately.

The program goes across both IUB and IUPUI, so I highly recommend utilizing the advantages of having two campuses and one program.
