If you could study any random thing other than HDFS/MFT, what would it be?
I don’t know about study, but I have seriously considered becoming either a kindergarten teacher or a party planner as alternate career paths

What advice would you offer to someone thinking about graduate school?
Graduate school will push you to stretch in areas you haven’t before. If you’re here, we already know you’re good at taking classes. So it’s all the other stuff you should be really excelling with: research, teaching, leadership, community involvement. Those are the things that are actually going to set you apart when you leave graduate school.
