The GSE at UB offers topically relevant courses, but their student-to-faculty ratio is too high, and the advisors are over-booked. I had three of them over just one year of graduate study. Job placement efforts by the school are virtually non-existent, and, for some reason, they don't like to hire alums. But, as I said, UB's courses are cutting edge, and interesting. The professors are fair, and schedule their succession of assignments assuming that the students are working, at least, part-time schedules. I wouldn't use the term, "degree-mill" to describe UB, because way too many industry leaders graduate from here, but the idea that college is what you make of it doesn't seem to apply any more fittingly than with this institution. I knew people who skated by doing nothing. Still, the geniuses do seem to rise to the top. It took me a couple years after graduating to find a full-time job (and UB did nothing to help me out in the process).

Do not go here unless you want to be just another student. You will get stuck in lectures with 400 other people, and none of your professors will know your name. The professors do not care about you or your grades. If you get stuck living on South Campus you'll have to take the bus every day to North Campus, and the buses aren't very reliable. If you get stuck living in the Ellicott Complex you'll either have to take the bus to the academic spine or make the mile walk every day. I do not recommend this college at all, do not go here.

I love living in the dorms and meeting different people form all around the world. There is always something to do on campus whether it's rock climbing, pumpkin painting, food trucks, etc .
