It is no secret that graduate school requires an immense amount of hard work and dedication. In his interview, Dylan Jensen, a second year in CSU’s Biochemistry and Molecular Biology department, describes some major differences between his undergrad and graduate school experiences. In particular, Dylan suggests that graduate school can often be “a complete shakeup” for many students who aren’t used to getting anything below straight A’s and B’s.
So how do graduate students find the drive to keep going? “If the project inspires you, the excitement of being on the cutting edge will help all of the other trials and tribulations of graduate school seem worth it.” Read more about Dylan’s passion for research and see if you too are up for this challenging, fulfilling work!
