It’s that time of year again – the NFL Preseason! Just kidding. I’m actually thinking about the beginning of school, especially all of the undergraduates who are either beginning their college experience or starting to think of life after their bachelor’s degree. For undergrad members of ESN, this likely includes thoughts about graduate school.
I’ve asked about advice for undergraduates before, receiving some great comments in the process. Since the responses were so good the last time, I’ll just repeat the same questions:
- If you were once an undergrad, what do you wish someone had said or asked you at that stage of your academic career?
- If you are an undergrad, what kinds of questions do you have about grad school and the life of an academic?
- What kinds of resources would be most helpful for ESN to produce or distribute?
Leave your advice in the comments, or send it directly to me, if you wish.
