Hello fellow graduate students,

My name is Jessamyn Perlus and I am a Ph.D. student working under the supervision of Dr. James Rounds in the Educational Psychology Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I would like to invite you to participate in a study about experiences in graduate school, specifically some of the ups and downs related to being successful but also feeling overwhelmed or like an impostor.
