  1. Why do you come (What keeps you coming back) to the Grad Cafe?

    Just got back after a hiatus for quite a few months! I guess I'm here to see what I can learn from current/former grad students about academic life, etc.

    Mendeley all the way!
  4. When to contact potential advisor

    I started contacting them around late summer (early-mid August). You can always start browsing professors' lab webpages and read their publications anytime - it's best to start this process early, especially since all that lab webpage browsing/paper reading can take time. Now is a good time to get started as well. Good luck!
  5. Why do you need a Ph.D. degree?

    I want to become a professor as well.
  6. Frustrations with transcript requests

    Oh man... you have my sympathies it's super frustrating to get application process be hindered by transcript requests, which should be the simplest of all the application components... and 60 days?!? That's insane... Let's hope that all universities will offer e-transcripts (as well as accepting those) in the next not 20, but 2 years! Glad to hear that everything worked out for you and that you got admitted to your first choice. Congrats!
