It’s back to school time, but for the first time since 2005 I am not going back to graduate school this fall. After completing the Evening UST MBA program in 2009, I continued taking classes through the business communication certificate program until I finished it this spring. With eight years of classes under my belt, I feel like this is a good time to reflect on what I would do differently if I could hop in a time machine. If you are starting a graduate program this fall or thinking about it in the near future, hopefully you can learn from my mistakes and have an ever better graduate degree experience than I did. (Although, mine was pretty great!)
Best of luck to those starting the program, those continuing and all of you who, like me, are trying to remember what life was like without class! To the latter, if you have words of advice for those starting the program, we (and they) would like to hear them. Add a comment with your best advice.
