"Pros: If you are really interested in doing research, UW Madison is a great place with lots of labs, opportunities to collaborate across departments, etc etc. Cons: Since this is a big school, the emphasis is more on research and, at times, mentoring could be ignored. This results in grad students either quitting midway, or being forced to switch research groups. Ultimately, this leads to loss of valuable time and effort and possibly loss of interest for the student."

"Madison is a wonderful city to live in. It's small but has a lot of culture, including a vibrant grad student / young professional population. The public transportation is convenient to campus, though parking is scarce in the campus and downtown area. Rents are generally affordable. The chemistry graduate program is one of the best in the nation, and the department is very collaborative."

"After coming to Madison I fell it difficult to comprehend why anyone would leave. The people here are not only kind, they want you to succeed. The resources are expansive and the location could not be any better. There is a certain flow here that feels like progress in the department is always being made. Hours can be long but that is to be expected no matter where grad school is attended. Wisconsin-Madison is rated highly in US News and World Report for grad school sciences, and I see first-hand why exactly that is so."

"I don't think a high level of work should necessarily lower the overall grade. Your system is inherently quite flawed in this manner. Grad students don't come to grad school looking for an easy time. Consider your audience when you make a website."

"The University of Wisconsin-Madison chemistry department has a wonderful culture which fosters a welcoming and warm fraternity between students and faculty alike. Madison itself is a wonderful city. I have a daughter and there is a lot for us to do together as a family in the city."

"For such a top-notch program, all the professors and students here are very friendly and down-to- earth. For that reason, it's been very easy transitioning to graduate school."
