How to be a (sane) grad student (ZZ)

今天作New Grad SIG作业,看到美女老师Jelena的主页上介绍了一些做research的经验,转载一下…
When I was just starting my graduate studies I had no idea how a grad school works: when to work and how much, how to write papers, how to choose the Ph.D. topic, how to find an advisor, etc. It took me four years to finally find answers to all of my questions, mostly through trial and error. So here is the compiled version of those answers. Hopefully you are not like me, and can learn from other people’s mistakes, so these guidelines will actually be useful. Of course, they are neither comprehensive nor universal. Simply some wisdom that worked for me and may work for you, too.
