Graduate Schools

What school should I choose?

Choosing graduate schools to apply to is perhaps the most difficult part of the application process. You may choose for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to the following:

  • Location
  • Program or degree
  • Networking opportunities
  • Tuition costs
  • Online vs. classroom programs

You should look into as many as ten schools, but narrow your choices to 3-5 schools. You should apply to at least three schools because you may not be accepted into one of your top choices. Applying to more than five schools will only make your choice harder. If you’re seriously interested in more than five schools, try to narrow it down before applying to all of them. Applying to graduate school is expensive so make sure you’re interested in the schools you’re applying to. Getting advice or tips from your professors can be a helpful way to narrow down school choices.
