Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros of my grad program are that we have stellar research facilities and faculty, and a wealth of potential coursework at our disposal. Cons are it's location in a rural southern town. However, Athens is great and it's not too far from Atlanta.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Most affordable, high-quality legal education you can get!! The UGA alumni network is incredibly accessible, helpful, and the school's name carries you far in Georgia. Outside of the state it's a little tougher, but overall this is the best bargain you can get for a degree without skimping on the quality of your education!

Degree: Biology

This is a very rewarding program, that excels in the personable classroom environment and quality of education. Everyone is working with you, there isn't an atmosphere of competition.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

This is the first semester of this program, and they've already introduced the students to some great names in our fields of screenwriting and nonfiction narrative writing. My classmates are top notch, and my professors have good amounts of real-world experience and connections. Having on-campus classes one week per semester is totally manageable, and the experience of this residency has been great. The main cons are that this is the first semester of this program, so there is a lot of room for growth. Classes are small, but it's sometimes still difficult to know what is expected of you. It could really use some more distinct structure — and probably a syllabus.
