UGA is a great school. Classes have mixes of full time grad students and classroom teachers so you have a great opportunity to mix theory and practice.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

We have excellent, distinguished, respectable, humble, and down to earth professors in the Dept. of Plant Pathology at UGA. Athens is a very inexpensive place to live, with a LOT going on - music, international culture, farmer's markets, and a fantastic food scene. Make sure to discuss the real cost of graduate student fees with other students, however, because they have risen from $500/semester when I started to over $1200/semester now! Plan for about $3500/year in out-of-pocket student fees, plus more for parking and book expenses. Only choose graduate school as an option if you know that it will help you have a more prosperous career and if you know what you want to be when you grow up. If not, go try some apprenticeships first and then come back for grad school.
