Graduate and Professional School

If you are considering graduate/professional school, assess how furthering your education fits into your personal growth and interests as well as the trends and development of the profession. For each school you are considering, research the program of study, faculty, admissions procedures, availability of financial aid, opportunities for practical experience such as internships, accreditation, and the follow-up of previous graduates. When applying, begin the summer before your senior year of college or one year before you plan to start graduate school.
