I was asked last week whether the Admissions Blog would feature a list of recommended readings for incoming students this year. As it happens, I wasn’t planning to gather a new list, but I’m happy to be able to point you back toward suggestions provided by our professors in previous years. I’ve gathered all the posts, dating back to 2007, in a cleaned up Professors Suggest tag.
Though no reading at all is required in the summer before you enroll, you might want to pick up a book to get your mind around upcoming coursework. Or maybe you just want to see how many of the listed books you have already read. Not all the suggestions are heavy — at least one of the posts includes a few fiction options.
