Should you go to graduate school?

I’ve come to the realization that I’ve been doing this academia thing for long enough that younger scientists have started asking for my advice (“starting” is the wrong word, this has been going on for awhile…).

And while I’m by no means wildly successful, I have been around long enough that I have advice to offer.

So I’m going to start a weekly series called “When I grow up” going through the different stages of the academic ladder and how to approach them/succeed.

I’m going to start with undergraduate research, but until next week (Stay tuned) I’m going to leave this article here.

More soon.
