It’s January, and that can only mean one thing for fourth year students: grad applications. That’s right, just when you thought you could pat yourself on the back for completing four years of all-nighters, Kraft Dinner and endless readings, you have to turn around and apply for more study.

So for all you grad applicants out there, take a break from those personal statements to check out what doctoral student Adam Ruben had to say about higher education in the New York Times. Or, just watch his hilarious - and telling - rap on YouTube.
