      Overall

      The quality of teaching is, in most cases, exceptional, and the supervision system not only connects you to world-class academics, but also fills in many gaps in your learning. There are a few minor issues, but they really pale in comparison to the privilege of being able to study here. I honestly think there is no better place in the world for me to be at right now.
