Is Graduate School Right for Me?

Considering whether or not to go to Grad School? Here are a few things that can help you decide:

  1. Talk to a career advisor or counselor about your future career goal and the programs that you are considering doing and ask them if the program would help with your career.
  2. Talk to a professor in your major and ask them about their grad school experience to see if it sounds like something that you'd want to do.
  3. Research grad program at their official websites and pay close attention to the job placement section.
