Applying to Graduate School

Deciding to attend graduate school is an exciting decision, but applying is a different story. Each graduate school is different and each graduate program is specific, therefore it is important to research schools and programs before you decided to apply. Most schools have websites packed with information about the graduate application process, but sometimes it may be helpful to contact an Admissions Counselor to assist you with the process. Typically, the application will require a variety of materials to accompany the actual application, i.e. personal statement, recommendations, test scores, transcripts, etc. Always remember to take your time and pay close attention to the materials that each school or program needs to have in order to evaluate your application. Each school is different and may require different supporting documents.
