Summer before grad school

Postby creepypasta13 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 4:18 pm

So for those of you who plan to start grad school this fall, what do you plan to do from now until the Fall semester starts? I'm already done with school, so I was thinking of travelling or trying to get an industrial internship. I'm currrently just improving my programming skills and self studying Jackson

Why aren't you begging profs at your soon-to-be grad school (assuming you decided to go) for research appointments?

Wow. How does one "self-study" Jackson? Are there solutions manuals available?

I'll be studying for Part I of the prelim at my school, and finishing research at my undergrad school. Anyone else going to MIT? Maybe we can get together in August and form a study group.

You have to take your prelims BEFORE you take the courses? What??
