What questions should I ask when visiting grad schools?


Recommended Posts

Here's some things I asked when I applied: 


1. Opportunities to work, either through the department or the university as a whole.

2. Where grad students live.

3. Potential for outside work, working with faculty, staff, etc.

4. What is there to do in the town around the university. 

5. What kind of equipment will be provided to you or you will have access to (i.e. computers, cameras, etc.)

6. How close the community is at that school. 

7. Alumni opportunities.


And just keep in mind, now that you're in, you're interviewing them. You have the power now - not to, you know, be a jackass with it, but to get what you want out of a program that you'll be putting considerable time and money into.
