I was reading this.
Now here's some advice that isn't silly: don't go to graduate school unless you get into a strong program.
What's the meaning of "program" in this case? What would be a strong program?
According to the thesaurus of my dictionary:
a program of study: course, syllabus, curriculum.
Basically, it's just another word for curriculum, although I've heard it mostly associated with graduate studies rather than undergraduate ones.
