This is the first part of a miniseries within the show on what graduate school is like.

On this episode, Kelsey and Tyler talk about PhD Qualifying Examinations, or “quals” as they’re often called. They go in a little bit of detail about the grad school culture surrounding it and how quals may be very different from school to school and may be very different even in different programs in the same institution.

It’s really interesting and I strongly recommend you give this a listen if you intend on going to graduate school.
