If you’re in school right now wondering how you are going to pay tuition, pull the grades, and find the perfect internship, then this episode is for you. It took Liesl Limburg 8 years to get her bachelors. At first, she tried to work full time and take a full course load to speed up her graduation date. She soon realized that there is nothing wrong with a slower pace. The New York Times talked about the “4-year myth” and a new report that just came out examining how long it actually takes most students to graduate.

“At most public universities, only 19 percent of full-time students earn a bachelor’s degree in four years, the report found.”

One of the coolest things about Liesl’s story is that she just tried. Even if an internship required a much higher GPA, she would still apply. Even if she didn’t ‘t think she would get a grant she would still submit the application. Because of her willingness to try, she was able to have some amazing experiences from working on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to experiencing a study abroad in France. Make sure to push play to hear the full episode. Congrats Liesl on the recent graduation and best of luck to you girl in Grad School!
