Episode 30: Imposter Syndrome... 3 years later

Episode 25: Applying

If you're a long time listener to the show you know how we do. You write us and we ask you to come on and do an episode. This week the first person to ever reach out to us about the show talks with us about applying to grad school, finding funding, and making the decision about where to go. We also answer a question about school supplies, and talk a little about what we give as our "elevator pitch" when you have to introduce yourself in an academic setting. Weekly Recommendations What to Schedule Work, Leisure, Writing, Reading, and possibly sleep... remind me what sleep is again? Making friends This week's suggestion is to try connecting with others about books. It's a great place to start a conversation!
