What is Grad School Like?
By Jordyn A. (G’19)
“It’s just like undergrad, right?”
I was one of the poor, naïve college graduates expecting graduate school to be a continuation of what I had been doing for four years but then reality struck.
As an undergrad, I never realized how general courses were. But then I became a graduate student, and suddenly my comprehension went from this:
I usually had time on the weekends to hang out with friends.
We would show some school spirit at home games.
But lately my weekends have looked like this:
The dorms and apartments I once lived in used to exude comfort…
But my current apartment living room looks similar to this:
My coffee intake has increased tremendously.
While my sleep time has decreased…
Naps are a thing of the past. May they bless someone else’s life.
But in the end, I definitely do not regret becoming a graduate student.
