Ahaha just the whole process of saying essentially, "Hey, can you invest 6 years of your lab's time and resources in me so that I can become a fancy researcher like you?" is a little stress-inducing.

Thankfully I have some really great mentors at my current institution who are thrilled to answer all my questions and help me with the application process, but still. UGH.

Ah yes, it's like job hunting in that regard. In the end, they are hoping to benefit though, so keep that in mind ;-)

Also, mentors are great. Make sure you listen to them!
