3 Agenda Key Factors To Consider: Slides When To Attend Testing Application Timeline Graduate School Resources
4 Why Graduate School? Going to graduate school is a major commitment of time and money; this decision should not be taken lightly. It is generally not advised to attend graduate school because you thought you were supposed to or don t know what else to do. You will face several years of intense work, research and a more demanding course load than in your undergraduate program. It is extremely important to be sure and committed before deciding if graduate school is your next step. Complete in the guide why you are interested in graduate school.
5 Why Graduate School? The following is a list of reasons why graduate school might be ideal or potentially beneficial: Career Goal Compensation Staying Marketable What is your reason for attending graduate school? It is important to complete your answer in the guide before moving to the next slides
6 Career Goal Earning a graduate degree that is part of your plan to reach a specific and carefully thought out career goal is a very legitimate reason for attending graduate school. There are several professions that require a graduate degree or credential program. Attorneys, K-12 teachers, doctors, psychiatrists or Marriage & Family Therapists are just a few professions that require a graduate or professional degree.
7 Career Goal If you are unsure or have doubts about your professional goals, going to graduate school is not going to help you find your career. Questions or concerns regarding graduate school, should be addressed with faculty in professions you are considering or working with a Career Counselor to help you figure out your career interests and goals. Attending graduate school without a clear specific career goal, can potentially lead to lower motivation and program drop-out.
8 Career Goal There are many careers that offer job opportunities that don t require an advanced degree. In some situations, having an advanced degree can actually hurt you in a job search if you have little or no job experience related to your graduate or professional degree. You don t want to be classified as overeducated and under experienced. Employers prefer education but require direct and related skills and experience for their competitive position.
9 Compensation Most studies show that people with advanced degrees earn more on average than those with only a bachelor degree. A college master's degree can be worth $1.3 million more in lifetime earnings than a high school diploma Recently reported from the U.S. Census Bureau. However, increase in compensation depends on the position and or industry.
10 Compensation The Masters in Business Administration can really mask national salary averages. For example, a person with a MBA with 3-5 years of experience might be making ,000. While a person with a Masters of Social Work with 3-5 years of experience is making 35,000-80,000. It is best to know in advance what kind of extra compensation you could get with an advanced degree. Researching the average income for those who have advanced degrees compared to those who do not within the same profession and Learn more about Salary Comparisons at NACE
11 Staying Marketable For some professions without an advanced degree continued advancement is limited. You may need to earn an advanced degree to keep your training and skills current to make you more marketable for career advancement. In the corporate world, you may hear people talking about hitting a ceiling. Getting a graduate degree is not required for many "entrylevel" jobs.
12 Staying Marketable Have an employer pay for your advanced degree. Example: An engineer at Qualcomm in San Diego could not get a management position until he had a Master s in Engineering. His executive team offered to pay for his advanced degree and guaranteed him a management position when he completed his degree. Is an advanced degree a tool in advancing your career?
13 When should you attend graduate school? One of the questions most often debated is when is the best time to consider a graduate degree. Is it better to attend graduate school right after you complete your bachelor's degree? Or is it better to wait a few years and gain some work/life experience first? As mentioned above, certainly do not consider going immediately to graduate school as a default move -- or to avoid getting a job.
14 When should you attend graduate school? Immediately Pros Accustomed to being a student and have momentum Study Skills are sharp Few or less obligations Occupations that require advanced degrees for entry-level positions Cons Could choose the wrong program = spending money and time on wrong profession Not a competitive candidate to admissions committee without work experience Unlikely to fund entire tuition and expenses
15 When should you attend graduate school? After Work Experience Pros Confirmed your career goals through hands-practical experience Completed the needed work experience to apply for graduate programs Bring actual work experience to the theory you will learn in class Broader world view to your studies Some employers may pay for partial or all of your tuition Financial stability Improve chances for acceptance to graduate programs Cons Struggle with study skills Work, life & school balance Attending class and working with students significantly younger Leave a paid position to complete an internship opportunity
16 When should you attend graduate school? During Entry Level Career Pros Locate employers willing to pay for your education while you work Financially stable while concurrently working on improving your skills Minimal student loans Know you already have a job after graduation Cons Balancing work and school simultaneously
17 Types of Tests Which test should you take? Depends on the university/college and each program has different requirements. Check program requirements found on the application website. Don t assume, Find out! Typical tests include: GRE General Tests GRE Subject Tests LSAT Law School MCAT- Medical School GMAT Business Schools
18 Test Preparation Self- Study Options: ETS website offers practice test and registration information. Test books- fairly comprehensive & offers a variety of practice tests. Preparation Classes (community college courses): Los Angeles Pierce College s Extension offers a 2-part prep-test, 1 for verbal and analytical and the other on quantitative (math) course at $109 per course. If, you discover that you only need the verbal and analytical scores you may only need to take 1 course.
19 Test Preparation Private test-prep schools: Kaplan offers up several options including premium services that provides a money-back guarantee. However, their services can cost anywhere from $300 to several thousand dollars. If you are interested in obtaining high score results, Kaplan is ideal. But, the price for achieving a particular score with Kaplan is fairly expensive. For more information please visit their website.
20 Test Preparation ETS Website free Test books ($10-$30) Test-Prep classes ($109-$218) Private test-prep ($500-several thousands)
21 Graduate School Application Timeline Research Select programs and schools of interests Recommend 3-5 schools Average acceptance is 15% Find out about pre-requisites & special requirements Application requirements & deadlines Visit school s website & contact admissions counselors. Every school and program is different Should start research 10 months prior to application deadline (February-July of the previous year for Fall)
22 Graduate School Application Timeline Testing Study for exam (May-August = Jan 15 deadline) 6-8 months prior to application deadline Pay & Schedule ETS (3weeks-2months prior to exam day) Take the Exam 2-3 months prior to application deadline Anticipate the possibility of retesting Pro: Improve better scores Con: cost Meet with admissions counselor for specific program questions & attend a campus visit.
23 Graduate School Application Timeline Letters of Recommendation Start around the same time you are taking the GRE or waiting for the results Contact Professors and Supervisors Who really know you & speak on your behalf Can highlight the best qualities, & fill in any gaps, questions, or concerns For example if you are applying for a MBA graduate program and you excel in the business courses but, your English courses are average. An admissions counselor is going to be concerned that the student might not do well in writing papers for their master s thesis. However, if you get a letter of recommendation from your English professors explaining how well you have excelled in your last couple English courses, it alleviates their concerns regarding your writing ability.
24 Graduate School Application Timeline Letters of Recommendation Avoid getting a letter from someone who doesn t know you well, or someone who can not speak about your ability to excel in your education Personal friends, relatives and mentors who are ill-informed about your academics or hasn t supervised you, have very little impact on the admissions committee.
25 Graduate School Application Timeline Letters of Recommendation Provide Summary & Transcripts to the writer Detailed information about yourself Reason you are applying, goals, and interests Don t assume that your letter writer knows everything about you and only has only good things to say, they may have concerns. For most circumstances you can address any issues and communicate what information is relevant to focus on in the letter of recommendation. It is common for faculty to write letters that indicate they know little about the student, without the above information. Request letters 6-8 weeks in advance
26 Graduate School Application Timeline Statement of Purpose/Personal Statement Research school information to draft essay. Include: Faculty and program information Mission of the department and institution Speak with an admissions counselor, visiting the campus and meeting the faculty and staff has a significant advantage to those who don t. Write Rough Draft (summer) Ideal time to write is 6 months in advance Review & Edited by Faculty and Graduate Writing Studio Roughly 3-4 months before the application deadline
27 Graduate School Application Timeline Attend Graduate & Professional School Fairs Meet with Enrollment Advisors and learn about graduate school programs Get tips and additional help for the application Check GRE test results with Enrollment Advisors Participate 1 year before you plan to attend graduate school CDS hosts this event only during the Fall Semester
