In this workshop we'll review how to determine what graduate schools you should apply to, discuss how many schools you should be targeting, begin making your long list of schools to research, and outline what steps you should take to turn your long list into a short list.
In this class we'll cover some of the most frequent questions we get about applying to grad school: how do schools weigh the GRE and GMAT, what score do I need to get into my target program, how long do I need to study, how does a school view my GPA, and should I explain my GPA and/or test scores to prospective programs?
In this workshop we'll cover the importance of Letters of Recommendation: who you should ask to recommend you and how, how to keep track of LORs and follow up on outstanding letters, the difference between CVs and resumes, and how to make your CV stand out and complement the rest of your application.
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.
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!
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.
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.

The instructors had graduated from the schools I was applying to! I really felt like they cared about my grad school journey.
So much useful info that I hadn’t heard before. I no longer felt alone in the application process. And - I was accepted!
It really got me excited to work on my applications and I was able to make lots of progress on my essays!
