If you're even considering getting a Ph.D. or master's degree in the sciences, you know how intimidating and open-ended the process can be. As opposed to other courses where plans are laid out for you (as with law school or med school), or the humanities, the sciences requires passion, independent thinking and research, and a whole lot of determination. This guide serves as a "what to expect" and "what to do" glance at the process of getting into, choosing, and studying in a graduate level program. With plenty of quotes from professors and students who have gone before, be encouraged and arm yourself with information on how the system works, and how to navigate it with as little stress as possible. 209 pages, indexed, softcover.
