    Congratulations on getting into all six of the schools you applied to! That in itself is a major accomplishment. Mentors like professors are an invaluable resource in not only teaching you but also guiding you through big life decisions. I look forward to hearing more lessons from you throughout your grad school journey!

    I will probably never attend a traditional grad school program since it’s not needed to advance in my industry. So many of my college friends are applying to grad schools right now though!! The GRE sounds awful. Congrats on your acceptances!!!

    Congrats! I have my Master’s and am working on my PhD. I blog about it too. I’m a huge advocate for grad school and I love hearing these inspiring stories. People ask me all the time about graduate school and how to apply. It’s something that no one really knows until they do it themselves. I think blogging about this more would be great for a lot of people! I don’t know your audience but many people have questions about it.

    You seem self aware, and motivated. I know you’ll do great in grad school!
