UVA Biology Program

gq2016gq2016 Registered User Posts: 194 Junior Member
For those of you who are attending/will be attending UVA, do you have any knowledge of UVA's biology department, or its science programs in general? I really liked the atmosphere of the university when I visited and I know it has a good reputation in academics overall but don't know much about its biology programs. How would you rate its faculty/courses?
Thanks!

    I can comment on the sciences as I was a Biochem major.

    The UVa bio program is very strong is preparing people for med/dent/graduate school if that is what you are looking for.

    There's lots of research at Gilmer (the bio/psych building) you can get involved in. There's also research at the med school.

    The courses in the sciences are tough, but very very enjoyable. You'll definitely learn a lot.

    Good luck with your decision!
