Grad School 101

This session will include information about graduate school from both the student and faculty perspective. It will address questions such as: What is grad school like? How is it different from undergrad? How do you pay for it? Is it for everyone? Masters vs. PhD--what do these degrees do for you? Do you need to put your life on hold when you are in grad school? What are some of the best things about grad school?

Professors Bill Kramer, Yongjoo Park, and Elahe Soltanaghai will be this session's panelists.
