Fundamentals of Graduate School Admissions

An elective course in the Independent Educational Consultant Certificate Program.

Course Description

This course is a broad survey of the four areas of specialization in which graduate school consultants are most frequently sought: MS/PhD programs, medical school, law school and MBA programs. The MS/PhD admissions process is described in detail, and topics unique to it, such as researching programs and writing a Statement of Purpose, are given considerable attention. Guest lecturers will describe best practices and trends in medical school, law school and MBA admissions. Elements of medical school, law school and MBA admissions that differ from MS/PhD admissions, such as the application timeline, will be particularly emphasized. Case studies will be drawn from the instructor’s private practice.

We highly recommend students complete EDUC_X406 Principles of Independent Educational Consulting prior to enrolling in this course. See enrollment confirmation for login information. Due to high demand, early enrollment recommended.
