Planning for Graduate & Professional School

As A Student

Shape yourself into an ideal graduate school candidate:

  • Be selective and make sure each activity maximizes your potential for graduate study such as student organizations, your internship, substantial volunteer work
  • Be an instructional or research assistant; volunteer as a tutor
  • Attend conference presentations or collaborate on publications with a mentor
  • Write an honors thesis if you have the option
  • Make sure your undergraduate courses prepare you for graduate study
  • Join the premier professional organization in your discipline

After You Graduate

Keep your skills and competencies in your field sharp and well represented on your cv/academic resume:

  • Volunteer if your current employment is not related to your choice for graduate study
  • Take additional coursework to supplement your undergraduate studies if necessary
