Should You Go to Graduate or Professional School?
Before pursuing graduate or professional school, ask yourself a few questions:
- Why do I want to go to graduate school?
- Do I need a graduate degree to further my career?
- Am I passionate enough about a subject to engage in intensive study?
- What program will best fit my needs and interests?
- Should I start a graduate program immediately, or work for a few years instead?
- Should I build more hands-on experience in my field before attending graduate school?
- Can I afford graduate school?
Career Services Suggests: Don't go to grad school just because you don't know what else to do with yourself. If you are unclear about your options, come speak with an advisor.
