I emailed back and forth with my contact at MSU for a couple of weeks trying to determine if the program really was going to be a good fit. The information he gave me was very helpful, but eventually I felt like he’d told me all he could. I needed someone else to turn to find answers to my remaining questions. But who? Then I had the most brilliant idea. Why not ask if he could put me in touch with an alumnus of the program… a recent graduate who had a successful start to his or her career? A fresh perspective on the program and the job was exactly what I needed. So I asked, and he responded with contact info for two recent grads, both of whom he was sure would be more than happy to help. That was easy!
