Great collaboration of students, there are not quotas of students who fail etc. Nice city to live although very cold winters. The faculty focuses on research and though they appear gruff they do want students to succeed.

With not a lot of attrition, students feel more free to work together The feeling of "we are in this together" is what makes the program so great. Also, the department offers ample teaching opportunities, which I know a lot of other schools do not give to graduate students.
