What is graduate school “really like”?
What does it take to write a thesis (for an MA) or a dissertation (for a PhD)?
What is the current job market like for academic positions? What does an individual need to do to secure a faculty job in academia?
What is it like to be a young professor, teaching at a university? What does an average day, week, month, and year look like?
