Bonus Tip: Taking Stress Out of Choosing a School
Think about what school(s) you will apply to. What are your criteria for a program? Consider the degrees offered, geographic location, cost, campus culture, and other factors.
Research the colleges and universities that offer the kind of program you’re interested in. Visit their websites to learn more about the admissions process and talk to an admissions officer about the school’s acceptance criteria for prospective students.
Talk to alumni of your target programs to learn about how their education has prepared them for their careers and what surprises and challenges they have encountered.
