Do NOT attend this school as a graduate student!!!!!!: please read to learn more. UAMS in Little Rock IS one of the worst graduate schools in the country, and possibly in the developed world. If you don't believe me, just check any reputable college ranking system that you please. The teaching staff is terrible, job placement is abysmal, publication record is atrocious, and the overall experience is just miserable. Do not attend this school. Do not. If you are thinking about going to this school (or if this is the only graduate school that actually accepted you) do not go! Multiple classmates of mine wasted countless years at this place, were treated horribly, and came out without PhD degrees or any employment-place-able degrees. This university is nothing more than a government boondoggle that is paid for by the tobacco taxes from the state of Arkansas. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! The teaching staff is a miserable coterie of slippery-slope failures. AVOID THIS GRADUATE SCHOOL AT ALL COSTS!!!! I am not sure how the medical or pharmacy schools are, or the Master's programs, but the research graduate programs (PhD programs in biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, etc..) are complete toilets. GO TO A REAL SCHOOL!!!!! Do not attend this garbage factory. GO TO A REAL SCHOOL!!!!! That is what I wish someone told me when I just got out of undergraduate! This place is a complete waste of time for anyone looking for a legitimate research career...or any career for that matter. I left this school, attended a better institution, and now have an actual life and career. Do not waste your time with these losers. And if you are there now: run. Run away. Run now. Why are you still reading this? Run now! Run away from the school! I know that you want to go to a real school, go now! Go to Duke! Or Tulane! Leave UAMS! Leave now! Freeedom!
