There are some people who are happy go lucky and carefree, better known as college graduates, and some, like me, that are inexplicably gluttons for punishment- prospective graduate students. We are the fraction of the population that signs up for more years of late nights, bad diets, battles with imposter syndrome, and mountains of assignments all for the sweet relief of turning a paper in on time and remembering to eat breakfast before our 8am labs. If this sounds like you, then you should enter graduate school. Yay! Well, now what? Good thing I have a couple “Do’s and Don’ts" up my sleeve to assist you with your application process.
