I'm Thinking About Grad School

There are lots of great reasons to go to grad school. From my own experience, one reason to go is to gain a specialization in something that you are passionate about. Undergraduate degrees tend to be very broad, while graduate programs allow you to take more specific courses and/or establish an area of specialization.

 

Back to School

Getting in the mindset to go back to school is not easy. Summer has a way of infiltrating your thoughts and attitudes. Everything is more relaxed in the summer, time goes by more slowly, and your focus ends up slipping from academia. This is a good thing; you need a break every now and then to reset. If you took summer term courses, your break may have been actually quite short. So how do you make the transition from out of school to in school?
