Choose a Graduate School

More students are applying to grad school, thus making it harder for students to get admitted to their school of choice.  We recommend that students should start their search early (see timeline below) do their homework, and decide whether or not they really want to go to graduate school.  Students should make an appointment with Susan Hyde-Wick in Career Services to help them decide:  make a career services appointment.
