I loved how interactive the course was and how accessible the instructors were when I had questions. I really felt like they cared about me and my grad school journey!
After being rejected in the spring, I signed up for a Magoosh Admissions course. What a difference it made! The instructors had so much useful info to share that I hadn’t heard before. I no longer felt alone in the application process. And - I was accepted into my program!!!!
I really appreciated how the instructors answered my questions and reviewed my essays so thoroughly. The class was extremely helpful and also lots of fun -- it really got me excited about working on my applications

Class 4: Grad School Funding - Ask Me Anything
Figuring out how graduate school funding works can be one of the most confusing parts of applying to graduate programs. In this class we'll cover what you need to know about funding, answer your most pressing funding-related questions, and make a plan for reaching out to individual programs to get more complicated questions answered.
Class 5: Writing a Personal Statement or Statement of Purpose
The Personal Statement and Statement of Purpose are two of the most important parts of your application. We'll discuss why they are so important, what separates good application essays from great ones, cover what should go in your PS/SOP and what shouldn't, and talk writing timelines. You'll also get to read and discuss real SOPs and Personal Statements from accepted graduate applications!
Class 6: Brainstorming & Outlining
Getting started writing is one of the biggest challenges graduate applicants face. In this hands on workshop we'll help you clear that first hurdle, giving you instruction on and time to begin your brainstorming and outlining. We'll cover the ideal structure for your writing and how to use your other materials to begin getting ideas down on paper.
Class 7: Writing Your Introduction
The first paragraph of your Statement of Purpose or Personal Statement is your chance to grab the attention of your Admission Committees. In this workshop we'll look at and talk about examples of successful introductions before helping you to start crafting an intro that will make your reader want to keep reading and get to know you better.
Class 8: Writing Effective Body Paragraphs
Once you've grabbed your reader's attention you need to tell them all about you in a few short paragraphs. This workshop will help you plan and write those paragraphs ensuring you have a clear, well-organized, and interesting essay that tells Admissions Committees exactly who you are and why you are a great fit for their program.
Have a topic you want to learn about? Magoosh Admissions students will also have the opportunity to suggest — and vote for — admissions-related topics they’d like to learn about.
For example - a class on who to ask for recommendations, or a class on how to identify potential advisors, or a class geared towards a certain degree — all ideas are welcome!
Every week, we’ll teach a class on the topic students vote for -- and make the recording available, too! (This is in addition to all of the other classes we also offer on all of the core admissions topics — like writing a personal statement, putting together your CV, etc.)
