Re: Grad School Suggestions


One should not enter a Graduate program based on the name or reputation of the school, but
rather one should study with the person whose work they respect....University reputations are based on history and not
necessarily on what is now happening.

A student emailed with the following question. Here is his primary
interest in seeking grad school recommendations:

"I want to keep making alternative prints, so I am looking for a program with that capability.
In addition, I plan to end up teaching at the college level so I was
thinking that a school

that has some prestige couldn't hurt my ability to land a better
teaching job in the future."

I'll forward all good advice to him so he can decide what makes the most
sense for him in particular.

Thanks for helping this eager student!
