The GradHacker team is happy to announce that we are dedicating this week to those who are currently applying to graduate school. As most of us know, applying to graduate school is a scary and taxing experience, and figuring out where to get the answers to even the most basic questions is not always easy. We therefore hope that the posts by this week’s authors and the end-of-week podcast will serve as a useful resource to all those currently going through the stresses of applying to grad school, and bring our future colleagues into the world of graduate life with as few problems as possible. As a site whose audience primarily consists of those who have already applied to grad school, we will, of course, need your help to make sure those currently applying are made aware of this week’s theme. We therefore ask you to take to time to spread the word about applicant week outside your normal graduate student networks.
As always, we greatly appreciate all the support you’ve given us in the past. We hope that between our content and your participation GradHacker will continue to offer ideas and generate discussion for many generations of grad students to come.
