Academic Trax: Episode 7

In this episode, the GEARS duo banters about getting into graduate school and whether it is better for the student to get into graduate school (and fail) or be preemptively denied by admissions committees (because of the chance they might fail). Topics include: differences between our own institutions and departments for graduate admissions, the impact of financial decisions on graduate admissions, support mechanisms at the graduate level, and the brand of the institution. Along the way, we have a role-reversal and it is now Jon asking the same question a million times in a row.

Let us know what you think. We can be reached at or via email at Jon can be reached on twitter @profgears.
