Can you handle criticism? A blog roundtable on Mr Epidemiology about graduate school

On the blog of Mr Epidemiology (who is a fellow grad student) a roundtable conversation is going on focussing on graduate school.

A panel of current and former graduate students (and yes you can also voice your opinion in the comment section of each question) will discuss various universal issues that impact graduate students during their graduate career.


The questions that are being covered:

Why did you go to grad school? (Oct 31)

What is important when picking your advisor/committee? (Nov 4)

How to deal with rejection. (Nov 7)


Coming up:

Are there tips for fighting impostor syndrome? (Nov 11)

What if things aren’t going so well? What advice do you have for those who might having a tough time – either juggling multiple commitments, losing interest or falling behind? (Nov 14)

Is doing a Masters and PhD at the same school frowned upon? What about undergrad/Masters/PhD? (Nov 18)

What has surprised you so far about the grad school experience? In which cases did it meet your expectations and when did it fail to do so? (i.e. How is graduate school life different to undergraduate life?) (Nov 21)

What does it take to be a successful graduate student? Are there any last minute tips/advice/inspirational words you have for budding graduate students? (Nov 25)
