Perfect Resource for Aspiring Grad Students
Unfortunately, I came across this podcast AFTER I had endured the process of applying to graduate schools. I say unfortunately -- because the episodes are so spot-on, and I wish I could have listened to them during the process. I particularly enjoyed "Is Harvard Really Worth It?" as someone who was just admitted to Harvard, and a group of other schools.
The host also seems extremely knowledgeable about not just test prep, but the entire grad school application process. I look forward to listening to future episodes, and will be referring my friends who apply to grad school to this resource.
