    What to ask about when visiting grad schools

    I have recently been admitted to a few graduate schools and am starting the visiting process this week. As I meet with professors and students, I am wondering if people have ideas (from experience or not) about what kinds of things one should be asking about and looking for? I will definitely be looking for the strength in my own area of interest, but am also curious about general aspects that may set one program apart from others.

    Thanks

    Great thread, thanks for starting it! I always ask about employment rates on recent grads, what sectors grads work in, and what support the department offers through the employment process. I also ask about internship opportunities during the academic year. Just my two cents.
