10. Good Luck!
I just finished my first semester of grad school, as it turn out this shit is pretty hard! Or maybe I just care more now, than I did in undergrad. I love it.

May I inquire as to what you plan on studying?

(Mine's Occupational Hygiene, i.e. how to keep workers safe on the job)

Once again, It's a lotta work, but very satisfying--and I'm pretty sure that goes for all programs) :hi:

15. Cool,
It took me nine years to make the move and go back. I won't say it "put the fire in the belly" but it certainly honed it.

I'm glad I waited, it all seems so much clearer now.

30. I thought you were already in--
do you mean your school has an undergrad program in Paleo? We had people who sort of specialized in that here, but all the degrees just said "geology."

You'll do fine with GRE. Do you have to take one of the subject ones, or just the regular GRE? (which is all I had to take, thank goodness)
