Grad school etiquette Show more
@bgcarlisle Better questions to ask a grad student, if you want to show that you're interested and you also care about their mental health:
- What's something cool you recently learned?
- Where do you think your field's research might go in the next 5 years?
- Do you have any readings/resources you'd recommend to an interested non-specialist?
