    Travelling while being female

    Just FYI, with the Google Maps app on your phone, you can turn on data/cellular to type in the address and hit search, then turn off data/cellular and the app will still function as a GPS while you walk/drive to where you're going. Definitely wish I had learned that before I maxed out my data plan my first summer abroad!

    What piece(s) of advice would you give to new TAs?

    Make students wait 48 hours to discuss grades with you. The cooling off period can work wonders.

    Research Year Abroad

    Yep, I met a lot of people who became friends through visiting local churches while I was abroad doing research. Even if you're not religious, church events often equal free food!

    Getting off to a good start

    To revive this thread: Success in graduate school has much less to do with the number of hours you put in and much more with whether you know how to use those hours in ways that help you progress through your program.
