There are a few that aren't the best and you have to wonder how they're still there. But most professors are amazing. They are helpful and want to see you succeed. They take the time to know your name, which isn't hard with the small class sizes. There is a good variety of courses, but availability can be a problem, especially for necessary courses.

There are several opportunities out there for jobs/internships, but no one is guaranteed a spot. Finding a job in biology is becoming increasingly difficult, so a consultant might be necessary.

It all varies but overall, I'd say it's the only part of UMW that lives up to expectations.
