While applying to graduate and professional school is a daunting task, UNC Career Services offers Pre-Graduate Advising to help you avoid common pitfalls of the application process such as:
- Not giving yourself enough time to apply to graduate school. Pre-graduate advisors can help formulate your academic and professional goals and establish timelines for submitting applications.
- Neglecting to develop strong professional relationships with faculty or professional supervisors who write your letters of recommendation. Pre-graduate advisors offer materials on professional etiquette, and advice on building rapport with professors to assure you have strong application letters.
- Failing to customize applications to each program. Pre-graduate advisors will provide you with the tools to research and select programs that fit your goals.
If you are thinking about applying to graduate school, schedule an appointment with a pre-graduate advisor in The Pre-Graduate Education Advising Program in Hanes Hall. Instructions for making appointments can be found at pregrad.unc.edu.
