Unlike going to college, an endeavor that most always involves both the student and her/his parents, the decision to attend graduate school is made almost solely by the individual who wishes to earn the degree.
During my over 20 years in the fields of graduate and enrollment services, it was my privilege to serve as Dean of Students twice. In this role I conducted open office hours for students. As you might expect, most of those who came to see me had a concern/complaint of some kind. Often these concerns/complaints centered on the student believing s/he was misled in some way, and that the graduate program in which they enrolled was not what they expected. In some cases the student was ready to withdraw.
