PhDerp Posted February 25, 2014 Share Posted February 25, 2014 Based on ranking, research fit, and my conversation with my advisor-to-be, I'm 99% sure I'm taking the offer from this school. I'm going to visit next week and it's a flight across the country, so I thought I'd extend it a day and turn it into a mini-vacation (the week before my spring break, lol). I think the visit is still important because if I really, really hate the area, I won't go. But I hope this isn't the case! They're going to give me two days of visiting the school with a lot of guidance and a schedule when I'm there, and that's great! But I really want to go explore the area on my own (actually, I'm hoping to visit a friend, too). While I'm in the city where I will probably spend the next 6 years of my life, what should I do? Should I look at apartment complexes? Restaurants? Roller skating rinks? Grocery stores? Bars? I know I should see what I'm most curious about, but... I'm blanking here! It might help if anyone can answer this question: What do you wish you checked out at the school you were visiting, and the area around it? Is there anything you would've liked to look out for?
