Grad school

Additional Navigation

Some industries require graduate and professional degrees and for others, having one will raise your earning potential. Going to grad school is a major descision - because you'll be investing your time and money. Here's some next steps to think about:

  • Research graduate programs and application deadlines
  • Complete a cost/benefit analysis (tuition cost v. potential salary)
  • Look for scholarships, assistantships, and research fellowships
  • Take graduate entrance exams (GRE, GMAT, MCAT, etc.)
  • Update your résume and gather letters of recommendation
  • Write a personal statement (or other required admissions essay) and have us look it over
  • Complete applications and watch those acceptance letters roll in
