I will have just completed my tenure at Illinois State University with my MS in Economics. Over the course of my tenure, I have become very close to my advisors and shall keep in touch with most of them. The work is very hard, but it is graduate school. All of the other students studying their are very approachable and can assist you if you have any questions with your homework, and you will. The hardest part about being a graduate student, especially within Economics is that the work load is very time consuming. Realistically, I would stay in my office until 2:00 a.m. four nights out of the week, each week, to be back at 9:00 a.m. However, the hard work will pay off in the end.
Long work hours (16 hours long)
