Reasons to Attend Graduate School

Is graduate school right for you? Graduate school should not be an alternative to a job, but a necessity for accomplishing your goals and putting you on your preferred career path. If you have a clear sense of your career direction, and if an advanced degree is required for entry into that field, then applying to graduate school makes perfect sense. Before applying, make sure to:

  • Clarify and identify your interests and career goals
  • Decide on the degree that will assist you in meeting those goals
  • Locate graduate programs that meet your needs
