What is Graduate Counseling?

In your graduate program, your counselor will work with you to:

  • Provide feedback on and make suggestions for additional prerequisite coursework, if necessary
  • Provide guidance and feedback as you write essays, personal statements, and statements of purpose
  • Assess work experience, refine resumes/CVs, and compile portfolios
  • Suggest contacts in your personal network to approach for letters of recommendation
  • Prepare for school visits, including interviews
  • Address special circumstances in your application
