This is probably an unpopular opinion but I enjoyed grad school way more than I did college. I appreciated the smaller class sizes, the more intensive research work I got to do, and the ability to work alongside professors I’d admired for years. The academic experience wasn’t the only way grad school was different from college, though. After two years as a grad student, I learned that dating in grad school brought with it an entirely new rulebook I hadn’t read in college.
As a grad student, you’re in a different phase of your adult life. You’re most likely in charge of all of your finances now, you probably have fewer roommates, and hopefully, you’re more inclined to do your laundry yourself rather than taking it all home for your mom. I know, I know. Change is scary but I can confirm that Cheetos will remain one of your main food groups so you can at least take comfort in that. Apart from these personal life changes, you’ll notice a few differences in your love life as well, especially when it comes to casually dating.
Here are three ways dating in grad school is so not like dating in college. New classroom, new rules.

This thought process works out pretty well in college, especially since almost the entire student body is on dating apps, anyway.
It’s a quick way to meet new people or maybe even find out if that girl from your chemistry lab likes you back you know, assuming you swipe right on her and it’s a match.

In planning for the start of the semester, we have had to reevaluate how we approach Orientation and White Coat ceremony and remain in compliance with social distancing. We will also be postponing the White Coat ceremony, originally planned for August 2, This ceremony is always very well attended by family members, as they celebrate your transition into medical school.
For the same reasons, including large group restrictions, we want to push this ceremony back to another date so that this can be one where your family members are able to celebrate in person with you. Once a new date determined by the School of Medicine leadership, we will give ample notice so you and your family can plan accordingly.
Much of the challenge is the work load, lack of sleep, the pressures of competition to get in to medical school, to keep up with your classmates.
Match Day is the crowning moment of the National Resident Match Program, which matches thousands of medical students with residency programs at medical centers and hospitals across the country. Deviating from tradition, the students opened their emails rather than envelopes and stayed home instead of gathering as a class in Langford Auditorium. But, some elements of the ceremony remained the same. Fleming randomly called student names and then one by one, each student virtually revealed where he or she had matched.
Brady and Fleming called out the Matches explaining where and in what field students would pursue training. A pin was placed on the U. Celebrating Match as a large group is inconsistent with current safety practices. Our students have matched into top training programs across the U.
