What influenced your decision to go to graduate school?

I knew that I wasn't ready to be a classroom teacher following graduation, and I also knew that I wanted to continue my studies, so graduate school was a logical choice.  I began the search my junior year, and by senior year had found a program that really interested me and was close to my hometown.

 

How did you explore graduate school?

I started searching the colleges in cities I wanted to live in - mostly those located near family.  From there, I chose one or two branches of study that sounded interesting, and those searches led me to more school.  And I prayed through it all.

 

Do you have any tips related to the application process?  

Look closely at the requirements.  One of the perks of the program I chose was that it did not require GRE scores, which I was grateful for after having run the gamut of PRAXIS tests.
