Abstract: The process of applying for a graduate program differs significantly from that of an undergraduate program, but many students are unaware of the difference. For an undergraduate program, students often focus on the school they wish to attend, whereas for graduate study the emphasis will be on the advisor, the research project, and the choice of degree. This webinar addresses many common questions and misconceptions about the grad school application process, including how to identify an appropriate advisor and how to select a university. We’ll discuss tips for writing a personal essay, getting letters of recommendation, and taking the GRE. Finally, we will talk about some of the things students can do as undergraduates to improve their chances at getting into the graduate program of their choice.
