I am a graduate student, and I completed my undergrad at a different school. It seems like my current school assumes that all the grad students graduated from this school; therefore, they didn't feel as if we needed any additional guidance due to being at a different school. For instance, during orientation, one would think that we will get our student IDs on that day, or at least be told where to get them. However, neither happened, and I had to figure out where and how to get them on my own. Also, during registration for the current semester, the system said I had a hold because they did not have my transcript from undergrad, but it was proven that they did. I'm not sure if either of these things, or similar things, are common for undergrad students, but if they aren't, I think the school should pay a bit more attention to the graduate students after admissions.

The academics are fine once you get adequate professors to teach the intended subject. The class size is ideal for those who are not oriented in mass classes like some of the sciences and Psychology. The access to study spots and academic technology is mostly available on a broad area of time, that is a major perk. The curriculum is tough and constantly have to stay on top of the wide load of work that is given to you. The overall is that the education is hard but good as long has you have a good ethic to work on the subjects and classes you are in; you'll get satisfactory results.
