This ten-week course is for juniors and seniors who know they want to pursue, or are considering the possibility
of, graduate education; learn first-hand from faculty and staff involved in graduate admissions how to find a good
program fit and how to prepare effective application materials.
The course seeks to engage students in determining the right “fit” for their individual graduate education
goals through three primary objectives:
Investigation: What is your desire to attend graduate school?
What you need to know about the graduate school experience
Revelation: What do graduate school admission committees actually expect?
Demystify the process
Personal statements, resumes/CVs and letters of recommendation
Preparation: How does investigation and revelation lead to finding a “good fit,” and how do you
chart a course of action?
Why do you want to go? When do you want to go? Where do you want to go?
What do you want to do? How can you do it?
