Applying to graduate or professional school—or considering it? Wondering about what to include in your personal statement or letter of intent? This one-hour session is designed to:

  • de-mystify the process of applying to graduate school
  • help you identify programs that are a good fit, and,
  • help you strategize and organize your approach to the personal statement and other application materials

Hosted by the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, this session has broad relevance for other programs and fields: all are welcome.
