Thinking About Grad School? Read This!

The question of whether or not to attend graduate school has become a hotly debated as job markets change and the economy shifts.

For most college upperclassmen, as the days ¬†between now and graduation diminish, it’s one that you’ll most likely have to consider at some point.

Although the pros and cons of continuing on after recieving your bachelor’s degree will vary depending on your major and career goals, it is something that I personally have decided to pursue.

Many students can be overwhelmed by the college application process, and I assure you, apply for graduate schools is no less daunting. However, it is a path that may lead to a fulfilled dream, more extensive research and knowledge, or a chance to climb the ladder in your chosen field.

With any major decision in life, it is something that requires a great deal of reflection and careful research. Professors, parents, and school counselors are great resources to help you along the way during this process.
