I think the program is really supportive when it comes to accesibility of students to faculty and also the collaboration with other students. The cons is that the diversity of courses offer is low.

Grad students need a raise! Excellent--but not very diverse--faculty.

Highly respected program, great faculty, cordial atmosphere among grad students (not cut-throat), pretty campus, university-provided transportation pass (but Austin's bus system isn't the best), low cost of living which makes the low stipend pretty livable. Overall very satisfactory.

Austin is a great city to live and I feel like I am getting a quality education from a top research insitution, which should help my chances on the job market. The only down sides are that there is not much financial aid beyond some/most tution coverage and the student body is not very diverse.
