How to fail in grad school

September 14, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

An great article on BitesizeBio send to us by Kasia Kościelska on how to go to grad school and leave without a degree.

In short:

1) Don’t use the resources available (google? pubmed?)

2) Rely on your professor to motivate you (it is all about passing exams)

3) Don’t set goals or timelines (nor stick to them)

4) Don’t read any papers (neglect your intellectual growth)

5) Enjoy some nice tunnel vision (forget the bigger picture of your work)

This might be especially interesting to the incoming students (and those who are stuck in dissertation research). To help the incoming students, this Friday (2011-09-16) at 4PM in LSA1022 there will be a information session where they can ask olders years for advise in advance.

Incoming student panel

When:  Friday, September 16th
Time:  4:00pm
Place:  1022 Life Science

    Of course. A name is to be written correctly.
