Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

UC Davis feels like a home. The town is built around the campus. It's easy to bike everywhere in town. There are world-class researchers in every department. The BME graduate program allows students to work with professors from different home departments which adds to the diversity and quality of research.

UC Davis is a good school. My issue with the academics is that you get less out of the quarter system that with semester classes. Davis is a nice suburb, but it lacks the college town feel.

Davis is a pretty lovely town, most residents are students. Therefore, no doubt, it is very nice for campus safety.

It's a great school! Nice network in the department. Con: not able to find housing within walking distance. But the bus system is great (even though there is overcrowding sometimes).

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: The faculty are amazing and very supportive. They are very keen on making sure their students succeed and can flourish in the academic environment. Professors are frequently responsive and organized. Information regarding other graduate level opportunities (i.e travel grants, fellowship info) are all publicized and communicated. Cons: Financial aid is a little unreliable. Labs sometimes cannot support students regularly. Establishing criteria and requirements for graduation (preliminary & comprehensive exams) has been rocky. Very little information was provided during the transition time, so students were unaware of expectations.
