ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
See what you and your fellow Graduate and Professional Students had to say about UCSD. A general report of the 2005 Graduate and Professional Student Experience Survey (GPSES) is now available at http://gsa.ucsd.edu
The survey is the first of its kind at UCSD, and was administered by the GSA (Graduate Student Association) in Spring 2005. Did you know:
*Almost 3/4 of G&P students are considering non-academic careers (but most feel they don't get enough advice about it in their programs)?
*Nearly 2/3 of G&P students would again choose UCSD, but over 1/3 have seriously considered quitting?
*Nearly half of G&P students regularly experience significant stress due to their academic program, their future/careers, or finances, and almost one-quarter have sought counseling while at UCSD?
*Almost half of G&P students don't feel they have sufficient input into decision-making in their programs?
The survey and summary report are intended to identify, in concrete terms, Graduate and Professional Student perceptions of their social, emotional, and educational experience at UCSD. Please take a few minutes to see what your peers had to say.
