Are you considering Graduate School? This is a decision that requires much time, effort, and reflection. Here are some questions you should ask yourself before deciding to apply for graduate school.
1. Why do I want to go to graduate school? And why do I want to go now?
2. What academic programs match my career goals?
3. What type of school do I want to attend and what learning experiences do I want to have there?
4. Do I have the academic ability for graduate work?
5. Will I be able to afford to go to school full time or part time?
6. Do my plans impact anyone important in my life (Spouse, Children, Parents, Significant Others)?
