I did a lot of theater in college, and I knew that not many people make it, but I just figured, ‘Well, I really want to try acting while I’m young, and I don’t ever want to look back and say that I never gave it a try.’ I fully figured I’d be back in grad school – probably for psychology.
Hank Azaria
I remember getting out of grad school and coming to New York and not wanting to get a teaching job because I wanted to work on my own, to develop my own ideas. There isn’t that time now. Artists are exhibiting while they are still in grad school. There isn’t that safety cushion.
Brice Marden
My family couldn’t be more supportive. They’re worried and they’re always in my business, and my mother does send me grad-school applications every now and again.
Ana Ortiz
I always wanted to live in L.A. The other thing that always inspired me was movies; that’s why I’m here. I always wanted to be a part of the movie business and make movies. That’s why I went to AFI grad school for filmmaking.
Jeff Vespa
I got into [acting] so late because of sports. And then when I was in grad school, I sort of got lulled into basically forgetting I was black, in – meaning that everyone you play at a conservatory, 95 percent of the characters are non-black.
Mahershala Ali
When I finished grad school, I sort of fell into journalism. Someone mentioned that there was an entry level job at the Reuters News Agency. I applied, and, to my amazement, I got the job.
Wolf Blitzer
You know what I’m great at? Trivial Pursuit. What good is that gonna do you in life? It has the word ‘trivial’ in the name. The game is basically telling you that you pursue trivial things. Trivial – as in not important. Trivial – as in maybe you should’ve gone to grad school.
Christian Finnegan
Other people do better going on to grad school and others yet are naturally inclined and do just fine without any formal training at all. Everyone is different. The only things I think are imperative are focus, determination and hard work.
Toks Olagundoye
In grad school, a friend and I gave ourselves the task of writing poems in the voice of BeyoncГ© and Lady Gaga after they did the collaboration for “Telephone.” I just kind of kept going. That was quite a while ago – BeyoncГ© meant something very different then than she does now.
Morgan Parker
There are the relationships you make. All of the friends I made in grad school are the closest ones that I have.
Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
The Thanksgiving meal should not be treated as a grad school exam or an Olympic dive. Whatever you cook will be good enough – unless you make that Twinkie turkey stuffing we’re suddenly hearing too much about.
Mary Schmich
I spent many years in grad school in English, so I’ve read a lot in a variety of genres. But adventure fantasy is my bread and butter as a reader, and probably always will be. So it’s only natural that I came to that genre as a writer.
Saladin Ahmed
I was trying to release emotions, exercise emotions, and then I entered the art world. Even after grad school, some of [the earlier works] were still lingering in my head. I realized there were some pieces where I felt that I had to respond to the criticism.
Kalup Linzy
Out of grad school, I worked as a tech writer for a while before going into computer coding for a living.

It’s the uncertainty, the challenge and the willingness to put it all on the line that draws a lot of people to climb mountains. That can also apply to a lot of other challenges in life, whether it’s running for office, starting a family, going to grad school or taking all of your cash and assets and starting a business.
Mark Udall
In 1975 I decided that there was no future in flying (airline jobs were impossible to get, and who wants a job where you are judged only by seniority?) and headed off to grad school.
W. Richard Stevens
Compared to the typical Zim/Chomsky-spouting grad school clown, a trucker with a screaming eagle hat is a paragon of political nuance.

Gillian Jacobs
I feel like no matter what happens in my career endeavors after today, going to grad school is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Gene Weingarten
If start-up activity is the true engine of job creation in America, one thing is clear: our current educational system is acting as the brakes. Simply put, from kindergarten through undergraduate and grad school, you learn very few skills or attitudes that would ever help you start a business.
