From Undergrad to Grad (Part 4)
In the final contribution of our fall blog series we ask students who have recently graduated from undergrad to share some sage advice for individuals applying to genetic counseling programs:
This week we asked:
Any recommendations for surviving grad school?
Make sure you have people in your life who will keep you in check and give you perspective!
Prioritize! There is always something due, so it is important to figure out the best way for you to balance all of your responsibilities. This includes taking time for yourself and allowing yourself to do something you enjoy every now and then!
My two recommendations would be (1) self-care and (2) staying organized.
Self-care is super important-- don’t forget to schedule time for yourself, whether you go to the gym or watch your favorite TV show every week, take care of yourself!
Staying organized is also really important.
I can say that I pride myself in how organized my email is (I have a folder for just about every aspect of grad school, from classes to interesting articles to read). It may seem insignificant, but it really helps!
