I love Grad Café because you are able to communicate with other grad students. There is a highly communitive forum with a host of topics to choose from. You can ask for Ph.D. interview questions and answers because many students have already gone through the process. Another great topic conversation could be about where to find the best Ph.D. dissertation writing service in your area. There are also some things you’ve learned through the years which you can offer as advice for new students. Be part of the discussion and learn with your peers as you go along.
