How am I supposed to finish my thesis if I’m going to be spending a week in March on a grand tour of America’s grad schools?

with one comment

Well, if you get accepted to enough schools to go on a “grand” tour, count your pretty pennies. You’re lucky. But even if you only go to one open house, enjoy the time away. Many people choose to apply to grad school a year or more after they graduate, but for the rest of you, you’re going to be juggling your thesis and these visits. But remember, the choice of where to go to grad school is actually more important than perfecting your thesis. And it’s not impossible to get work done on these trips; it actually might boost your admissions chances, since you’ll be looking totally studious if you spend your spare time doing research or working on your laptop in the department lounge.
