Tips from PhDs to Grad Students

TIPS FOR SURVIVAL AND SUCCESS IN GRAD SCHOOL: STRAIGHT TALK FROM PhDs TO GRAD STUDENTS

We’re all college professors. We’ve all been where you are now. We decided you could use some straight talk. That’s what’s in this book. Some of what we say will probably annoy and even anger some other college professors who get their hands on this book.

That’s okay with us. We like to think we’re different than many other professors. Many of us are heretics, actually, in that we don’t much care for some of the traditional methods and belief systems in operation at “Your Average University” (YAU, for short).

*** IMPORTANT NOTE: This guide is a work-in-progress. We’ll be improving the format, organization, and structure, as well as adding more entries from other PhDs in the coming months. We welcome your feedback, input, suggestions, questions, and criticism.
