"Although my program only just started, I feel like there is already a distinguishable, positive difference between my program at UCF and my previous school, where I am also completing my M.S. degree. Firstly, the attempt of faculty to acclimate the new cohort to graduate school, i.e., providing information on typical anxieties, how to apply for money, how to seek support, is something I lacked previously. I think this would have been great information to know when I started my M.S. degree; and would have saved me lots of stress and confusion. Furthermore, the curriculum is also great as a first-semester student for the same reasons: the faculty if arming the new grad student with information necessary to succeed in scientific research (i.e., providing a Methods course). The only cons I would say is that the living stipend I receive for teaching is just barely livable. While talking to graduate students who have been in the department for some time, it seems to me that there has been no raise for teaching assistants in nearly a decade. As such, I am applying for these external scholarships, including the one on here, in order to supplement my income."

"The pros of this program are that you definitely feel like you are working on something worthwhile, something that you believe in and something you are learning a lot from. There is a huge workload, but I think that it is necessary for me to have, not only to keep busy, but also to show off to interviewers in the future. Tuition is very affordable, even more so now since the program participates in the Florida-Georgia ACM. The only con that I see is that the program is a little ways away from campus; it is in downtown instead, so I will have to use local transportation to get to class. The program is extremely valuable to me and I believe I am getting the best education out there for potential technical artists."

"Very competitive. But competition is sometimes based on something ridiculous. So, eventually, an A-student might not really understand what's going on in his field study, he's just good in taking classes and exams."

"I think the program itself is top-notch. I have nothing but pros about the faculty, facilities, and courses. The only cons would be about the social life, and parking/transportation aspects of the University."

"This is my first semester although its a lot of material to cover.I am learning .The anatomy lab is state of the art.The dorm is comfotrtable. Parking easily accesible near dorm. The con for me was that I didn't get notice of assigned housing until one week before classes started. My move in day was sunday, Mothers Day and, school started the next day."

"A pro about my graduate program is that the classes are fairly small (20 students). It allows me to get a more personal experience. The con is that many classes are not offered on the same day. I am 50 miles off campus and have to drive to campus three times a week for three classes."

"I am from Germany and make one year abroad here at the UCF. Compared to the universities where I studied yet you have a lot of possibilities to make sport or come together with other students. A Problem is (always compared to what I know from Germany), that the food is not good at all and the only thing you get is fastfood. Who likes it will maybe be happy with it. And Orlando is not a beautiful city. But all in all this university is the best I ever studied. Thumbs up for it."

"in this day an age, I think a University should have a more professional website. my.UCF is very inconvenient. It is always slow and it is so hard to find anything on it. Also, I think we use have card access to all the buildings instead of using physical keys. Transportation to nearby apartments is really good, but it should go a little further. If UCF wants to be more competitive academically, it should focus on education and not growing even bigger. Bigger is not better."

"Though its not a high ranking university, its a nice place to learn and do research. The international community is very diverse-it will surely broaden one's social horizon. Faculty is supportive and caring. There are large number of places to roam around like Disney land, Universal studios, etc. The weather is good though a bit hot in summer but the beaches are not faraway! Overall, life is wonderful here-at least for me!"
