Tips for Advising

Encourage students to take the following steps when considering applying for graduate school:

  1. Research programs
  2. Study for entrance exams
  3. Update resumé and write personal statement
  4. Ask for 3-4 letters of recommendation
    • Recommend that they consider professors, employers, and other professionals they have had positive experiences with in the past.
    • Contact potential references early to determine if they are willing to do this. Allow recommenders 4-6 weeks to complete a letter.
