Any advice for students considering grad school?

Do it. You can and will surpass your own expectations. Before starting grad school make sure you have a solid support system, including mental health resources. It is so easy to become overwhelmed and neglect your mental/physical health as a result. The thing that got me through grad school was my family and friends – without them, I would not be where I am today!
