If you're intending to go to grad school, that means you have your whole life together, right? Wrong.

2. Getting recommendations.


What professors was I closest to? Does my boss count? I need THREE??

3. Filling out applications.


Wait, didn't I already do something like this before? Oh no, I need to give all of my personal information to this university that I may not even go to, again?

4. Finding not only the perfect school, but also the perfect price.

5. Finding the will to continue school.
