So you’ve completed your bachelor’s and now you’re wondering whether graduate school is the right option for you. There’s so much to consider. Will it help you in your career? Will it help you change careers? What programs are offered? What are classes like? How long does it take? How much does it cost? How will it help me?
There are a lot of questions to ask and they are exactly the type of questions you should be asking!
Committing to a graduate program is a big decision that requires your time and attention. It’s not a decision that can be taken lightly or should be taken lightly. In most cases, it will take lots of personal reflection, conversations with family and friends, reading and rereading informational material trying to understand every aspect about a program. If you are already doing these things, you are on the right path to making the best decision for your graduate education.
I will only add one more suggestion to this. Reach out to an admissions counselor. In most colleges and universities, there are counselors whose sole purpose is to help prospective applicants understand the program and help make the admissions process as smooth as possible. At Edgewood College, that’s exactly what we try to do. We strive to make admissions easy, clear, and accessible.
I like to think that applying to graduate school isn’t hard; deciding to apply to graduate school is hard. If you’ve made that decision to go to graduate school, reach out to an advisor so they can walk you through the admissions process. In most cases, it’s straightforward and at Edgewood College, it definitely is! If you’re still on the fence whether graduate school is right for you, reach out to an advisor and we can start the conversation. Going to graduate school isn’t a decision most people make in a day. It’s a process of weighing the pros and cons over a period of time. Counselors can help you understand that careful balance and help you make the best decision for you.
So if you’re still reading this and you want to learn more, you know who to reach out to.
