Post Graduation

Graduate School

Deciding which graduate school to attend can be a little overwhelming. 

  • We recommend you choose the program that suits your personal and professional goals. Do a lot of online research. If possible, visit those schools that are the best match for your career interests.
  • Having trouble selecting a graduate program that fits your needs? Check out U.S. News and World Report for grad school guides and rankings.
  • Once you have narrowed the list of schools to your top choices, begin the application process.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to complete grad school applications and start well in advance of the due dates. Avoid rushing through your application and take the time to provide thoughtful answers and materials that showcase your best undergraduate work.
