Welcome to A First-Gen’s Guide to Grad School: How to Get in, Survive, and Thrive! My name is Enrica Bridgewater and I created this blog to help other first-gen students on their grad school journey. Here, I will be providing resources as well as personal tips and tricks that I learned while applying to PhD programs last year.
DISCLAIMER: I am NOT an expert on grad school admissions or grad school in general! I will just be sharing insight from my own experiences as a Fall 2020 applicant. Most of what I will mention will be centered on admissions for PhD programs in the U.S. in the humanities/social sciences. Even though this blog is mainly for first-gen students, I hope that anyone who reads it can find it useful!
