Advice to Applicants:
You've got this! Shake off all those little voices of insecurity -- you are capable and incredible. Find a moment of peace to reflect on what you value and how those values are going to inform where you decide to call home for the next four years. All in all: take a deep breath, stay genuine, and be courageous!
