Wednesday, February 9, 2022

Off Campus Location
Are you considering further education? There are lots of questions to consider whether you’ve decided to pursue grad school or if you are exploring the possibility:
-Should I go to grad school?
-How can I determine which programs to apply to?
-What types of funding could potentially help me cover the cost of graduate school?
-When should I apply for grad school?
-What are some of the components of a grad school application?

This virtual workshop will outline what to consider before exploring graduate programs and institutions, provide a general application timeline, and give you a start on preparing your application materials.
Together with a Hub Coach and your peers, you’ll develop a plan to apply for grad programs that fits your learning and career goals. Lastly, we will work together as a group to establish what makes a powerful and effective personal statement.

You should attend this workshop if you are:
-A liberal arts and/or sciences (LSA) student
-Interested in learning more about the realities of grad school
-Eager for insights that’ll help you determine if advanced study is a step you want to take
-Looking for guiding criteria that will help assess if a particular grad program is aligned with your goals
-Searching for available resources to assist you through the process

What you’ll gain by attending:
-Bolster your understanding of grad and professional schools, admission requirements, and application deadlines.
-Develop a strategy for identifying grad schools that meet your criteria and a plan for how to stay on top of your applications.
-Discover resources available to you throughout your prep and application process.
