    GU REVIEW

    It's small, great undergrad research and opportunities to get involved. Even freshmen can get involved and by starting in your major early you get ahead of other students studying the same thing at other universities.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Fantastic. Everyone starts out the same way with basic biology and then the classes are much more specific with room to specialize but not to be too specific to get a well-rounded education. I love the professors.
