It's really challenging, but extremely rewarding. I'm really pleased with my decision to come here. I love my lab, love my advisor, and love Berkeley.

Cons: the psychology building isn't earthquake-safe; funding for CA universities is sub-par; housing is expensive in Berkeley; not many opportunities for training in quantitative psychology Pros: great faculty; environment isn't so cutthroat that it induces excessive stress; department seems to genuinely care about students' wellbeing; Berkeley is, of course, a highly ranked research institution Pros or cons: Berkeley is *incredibly* liberal.
