Consider Graduate and Professional School
Pursuing a graduate or professional degree is an important decision that requires significant planning. If you don’t have a clear reason for considering graduate school, it may be to your advantage to discuss your thoughts with a Gateway Counselor. Take the time to collect the necessary information to vary that a graduate degree is the right next step for you. Starting the process early will allow time to: think about what you want to do and why; consider all your options; and ultimately prepare the best application materials possible.
