The best place to get answers about grad school is from a graduate student themselves

Think of a person in your life that pushed you to your limits, but made you stronger than you were before. Or perhaps, there was a time when someone changed your perspective on something. Or maybe you once felt lost, and someone helped you find your path. Whether there were formally or informally our mentors, the impact these people have in our lives can be long-lasting and hugely influential.
