Graduate School Applications

Once you have found information on the field you desire, evaluated programs and graduate schools, prepared and taken the graduate exams for your area of study, then it is time to prepare your graduate school application. Be sure that you meet all deadlines and keep copies of all materials that you have submitted. Be prepared with the following: graduate application form (often online), transcripts, test scores, personal statement, letter of intent, letters of recommendation, and writing samples.

Your career counselor is available to critique your written material and help you best reflect your career goals in your personal statement. The Writing Center is also an excellent resource. For tips on how to write your personal statement, the James W. Stuckert Career Center and the Writing Center have collaborated on an article, Writing a Personal Statement.
