What advice would you offer to someone thinking about graduate school?
Graduate school is tough and will test your willpower and persistence. First and foremost, make sure your desire for graduate school is what you want for yourself.
Also, I highly recommend finding a great therapist. It is easy to neglect your own thoughts and feelings while in graduate school. Having an established relationship with a therapist makes graduate school easier to navigate than having “one more thing” on your plate to worry about.
