Graduate School Prep

Is graduate school for you?

Before you start filling out applications, we suggest getting some insider perspective first. Talk to your professors, your advisors, your career coach, and current grad students. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Why are you interested in going to graduate school?
  • What are your career goals?
  • How will an advanced degree help you attain these goals? Is an advanced degree required?
  • Do you have the academic stamina to continue your education, or do you need time off?
  • Will full-time work experience enhance your candidacy for graduate school admittance?
