I got out of lab today only to stumble onto a prospective student (for a different graduate program) and his parents. The parents grilled me about graduate life and academics here. I answered as best as I could. I hoped fervently that they would not view me as the typical graduate student although they no doubt would. I need a disclaimer tattooed on my forehead: Beware of Weird Student.
Arg. I am not a salesman.
