"This is one of the premier programs in the country, with well respected faculty members, great library resources and support. I am most fortunate to be apart of this wonderful program."

"Good financial aid package for the first 5 years, but not so great after. The faculty is top notch, but the size of the department makes things feel a little insular. It's a really great community of nerds, but you have to understand you're stepping into a world of nerds and awkwardness. Career support is tough, but only because there just aren't that many careers in the field. My biggest complaint is that I wish there was more support for ABD students. Unless you really press your advisors and form groups on your own, you get very little support, feedback, resources, etc. But you won't find a better education."

"The Graduate Student at Large Program is a great program for those trying to figure out what they want to do or are at a Crossroads on how to get to what they want to do. However, There is no financial aid for GSAL students and I'm not really sure how many are in the same boat as I am academically. The education is UNMATCHED by any University and that's why I love this place!"

"If you love languages, then you should come here to get a rounded picture of phenomena in several languages and focus on whatever field you like the most. Great diversity and collaboration in the department!"
