WE12: Applying to Graduate School

Most universities have an excellent career resource center, but unfortunately, many of these facilities do not provide guidance for students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree.  This Applying For Graduate School Presentation provided students with tips for preparing to apply to graduate school, a step-by-step guide and timeline for choosing a graduate school and advisor, and an overview of the application process, including campus visits. The session utilized the experience of three graduate students as guides through the maze of grad school applications. Katharine Brumbaugh received her B.S. from Purdue University in May 2010 and is now a PhD at The University of Texas at Austin continuing her studies in Aerospace Engineering; Sofie Leon received her B.S. in Civil Engineering from Cal Poly and is now continuing with Civil Engineering in the PhD program at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Kayla Shaw studied Chemical & Biomedical Engineering at Tri-State University and is now a PhD at Notre Dame.
