For Graduate Students
Planning for Graduate and Professional School
Shape yourself into an ideal graduate school candidate. Maximize your potential for graduate study with each activity you engage in as a student.
Graduate Admissions Tests
Admissions tests help institutions predict your academic success in their program. Tests you need to take vary by the types of programs you are applying to and can vary from school to school.
A CV is a special type of resume, traditionally used within the academic community (educational institutions, institutes, and research associations). It is submitted in applications to graduate programs, teaching, or administrative positions at academic institutions for grants or fellowships, or to apply for research or sabbatical assignments.
A recommendation is a detailed written statement (usually from a faculty member, supervisor or employer) of your personal qualities, qualifications, accomplishments, and experiences that make you well-qualified for admission into a graduate program.
The entrance essay provides an opportunity for you to differentiate your qualifications from other candidates. It can have various names, such as personal statement, letter of intent, statement of purpose, autobiographical statement, and/or objectives of graduate study.
Graduate School Interviews
The interview can be the deciding factor when admissions committees choose who to accept. Be prepare to interview after you apply. Practice interviewing with Big Interview or with one of our Graduate Assistants!
