A student who will be starting a PhD program in philosophy writes:
Being a fan of your blog and an incoming PhD student in philosophy, I was wondering if you'd think it'd be useful to open your blog up to commenters about things philosophy PhDs wish they had known about graduate school in philosophy before they began studying that would've made life and studying easier?
Some of the best advice about surviving graduate school I've gotten have been anecdotal and I thought perhaps students would benefit seeing some crowd-sourced advice on the blog, popular as it is.
