What tips would you share with undergraduate students when considering a graduate program?
When considering a graduate program, I think it is important to ask all the questions one might have about a program, look closely at the program and course descriptions to decide if the school is a good fit, and have at least one person proofread any essays required for applications! Completing applications can be tedious, so it is crucial to allow plenty of time to finish and submit them!
