I hope this question isn't too broad. I'm graduating next semester and I have been accepted into grad school, but I'm having difficulty finding a full map of what one should do to successfully go from where I am now, to a Ph.D., to (eventually) a tenure track--hopefully as a full-time student through the process. Obviously, this is over the course of 10+ years, but I want to do everything I possibly can, as early as I can.
Some things my advisors have told me for the near future:
- Write a thesis as part of your Master's program
- Find a professor to research with (goes with the first bullet)
- Go to at least two different schools throughout the whole process
Undergraduate advisors didn't have very much advise past that. I'm looking for a broad roadmap of what my future would require/look like if I were to go down this path.
