What future grad students should know about the application process

GRAD SCHOOL: Join us on campus for a
graduate admissions seminar to help you
successfully navigate the application process
The graduate admissions process might seem overwhelming if you’re unsure of how it works, what’s expected of you, and what you’ll need to succeed. But it doesn’t have to be! We’re hosting a graduate admissions seminar to help answer your tough questions about the graduate school application process on Monday, March 18 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Room 51. I’ll cover topics such as:
  • Who should complete my recommendation forms?
  • What should I discuss in the application essay?
  • What will the interview be like?
  • How can a borderline GPA impact my chance of admission?
  • What makes a quality application?
  • How do I put my best foot forward in the interview?
  • How do I succeed in the overall application process?
I’ll be presenting on these topics, and then answering any and all questions from the audience. If the question you have isn't listed here, feel free to bring it and ask! It’ll not only help you, but will also benefit your peers who might be wondering the same thing.
Our goal is to help you feel more comfortable with the admissions process, and help you get the ball rolling. So whether you’re thinking about applying, have started your application, or have applied, we want you to feel confident and prepared to move forward with your Peirce Graduate Studies application.

If you aren't able to come next Monday, you can still get information about our master’s degree program. We’ll be holding sessions over the next few months that will cover other aspects related to graduate education, including financial aid and what to expect from the program’s classes. We’ll also be updating our blog with graduate education information, and you can always email us at with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday, armed with your graduate admission questions and ready to learn!
