Great education and faculty. Excellent connection and internship/job opportunities after graduation. As a graduate student, I have probably slept about 5-6 hours a day during the semester, I'm constantly exhausted. The workload is brutal at the graduate level. There is pretty much nothing to do in this town.

Nice people, excellent professors! Almost every professor is responsible and very professional. The course is of high quality. Cons are the research is too theoretical, and a bit far from the industry!

I love being at the School of Computer Science at Umass Amherst. If nothing else, they look after their own. The department has a lot of resources for students in-department that other students might need to look to the wider university for, which means less dealing with complicated bureaucracy and red tape any time you want to get something done. In addition, most of the professors are excellent. Like all places this size, you get a few who aren't quite up to the bar set by most of the professors, but for the most part they are great.
