Welcome Math Graduate Students

On behalf of the American Math Society, I want to welcome all of you graduate students to the AMS and put this blog in your hands. Email me if you would like to be on the graduate student editorial board or would like to nominate someone else. Feel free to comment on the entries.

Frank Morgan, Vice-President, AMS

    This blog is an excellent idea! I have passed on the link to my students and hope that they will participate.

    I completely agree with Mason. Will send the link to my friends too.

    I have an undergraduate student in one of my classes who is extraordinarily brilliant and lives with intense migraines that occasionally severely reduce her ability to cope with school.

    This student wants to go to graduate school and is now facing the dilemma of selecting a program. When functioning at 80%, this student is three standard deviations above the median (in fact, it is humbling how intelligent and creative she is), so I have little doubt that she can do wonders in graduate school. But I wonder if someone with more experience with chronic illness could write a feature on “graduate student life with chronic illness” on the blog. Perhaps one of your bloggers knows a graduate student coping with chronic illness and can recruit this student to write a piece? I am particularly interested in knowing what considerations might a person with chronic illness take into account when selecting a program, but I am sure there are many other topics that could be addressed as well. (It occurs to me that the writer need not be a math grad student–any graduate student in a scientific field living with chronic pain would work.)

    I hope this sounds like an idea worth pursuing.

    Thank you very much for starting this blog.

    Isn’t this blog totally redundant with PhD Comics?

    Probably, so I’ve added a link to them in the upper right, hoping they might give us some legitimacy by adding a link to us—FM
