Things I wish I knew when I started Graduate School.

Overview:

There are at least two published articles advising graduate students (Stearns 2001; Huey 2001) as well as numerous blog posts. However, with this article we hope to solicit the input of current graduate students and post docs. With a bit of luck this might become a useful resource to those students just starting graduate school.

So, if you have a suggestion please post a comment. However, we'd like to keep this advice as unbiased as possible so we're asking PIs to enjoy the text, but to contribute elsewhere. Hint: at the time of this writing there does not yet exist a 'Guide to motivating recalcitrant Graduate Students'...
