Some Advice

This page is a collection of material I compiled over the years in advising grad students.

Getting Through Graduate School

  • Over the Hoops and Through the Hurdles
    Negotiating the official and hidden curriculum in graduate school.
  • List of things to do that I compiled a long time ago that  integrates the formal and informal curriculum as a guide to the first few years of grad school. An old list but still potentially useful.
  • Advice for new professors. This has evolved from a conversation over lunch, then an email, to our departing students.
  • Grad Skool Rulz: Written by Fabio Rojas in a series of blogs. I don’t agree with every detail, but overall well worth looking at and thinking about. (the archive is newest to oldest; start at the bottom and work up)
