Pros: Very talented faculty who are invested in students Cons: Program is a bit narrow and only prepares students for academia. No help for alternative PhD careers

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program and required classes vary by area, but are generally very applicable and taught very well. The requirements for research and related progress throughout the program are more important and rigorous than coursework.

It is perfect here. The only problem is that the rent is really expensive.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Very high quality research and clinical training within the Clinical Psych PhD program. Adequate funding is a major issue given the high cost of living in LA.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

The Econ program is extremely good and demanding, and I am very satisfied with all that I have learned so far, as well as with the smart and motivated people I have met. On the weak side, the department can be a bit disorganized and appears to be dealing with some financial problems.

Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I hope the program is longer, so then I will have enough time to find a job and learn more. 1 year isn't enough indeed.

LA is a very expensive city to live in on a grad student salary. I also spend 2+ hours a day commuting.
