An open letter to new graduate students, from Prof Hacker

In today's Chronicle Blog, ProfHacker writes an open letter to new graduate students, giving them advice and suggestions about how to deal with the transition to graduate school. Advice includes work graduate school like a job, meet your subject specialist librarian (I want to say that they want to meet you too, but they may be a bit overwhelmed themselves at first, but they will still be happy to meet you) and network, amongst other suggestions and some advice that was crowdsourced via Twitter.

Welcome (and follow at least some of the advice in the letter).
