I received a nice note from a former student enrolled in a good graduate program a few days ago. The message was similar to lots of feedback I've received over the years, so I thought I'd share this one:
I wanted to write to let you know that I made it through my first term as a grad student. I felt like it was easier than upper-level classes at UPS...."
We're working you hard now, but just think about it--graduate school will feel like a cool breeze!
