Did you know that more than 60% of Union College first year students express an interest in graduate school, but only 24% of the 2017 class headed into graduate school upon graduation?
There are many reasons for this, including some students realizing they didn’t need to or want to go to graduate school right away, or realizing they needed more work experience in their fields before graduate school. If you look at Union grads five years out, many more have gone to graduate school. This is why it’s important to start exploring graduate school early.
Check out our Graduate School Timeline here to see what steps you can be taking right now. Applying to graduate schools is similar to the job and internship search process. The Becker Career Center is here to help every step of the way of your search and application process including providing resources for searches, developing your network skills, reviewing your documents and application materials, and strengthening your interviewing skills.
