Does Grad School Make Sense for Me?

I saw an article in the Harvard Business Review called “Should you go to graduate school?”, and they listed out three reasons why it might not make sense to go – you can learn for free, you might be wasting your time, and you will probably go into debt. So I wanted to unpack this article and the concept of grad school from someone who knows, someone who’s finishing up the process right now, and who talks about it quite a bit.

My guest today is Allanté Whitmore, a Ph.D. student at Carnegie Melon, engineer, an expert on sustainable autonomous vehicles, and host of the BLK + In Grad School Podcast.
