Workshop II: Choosing the Right School and Preparing Your Resume

We have already met each other, and by now you have, hopefully met your mentor.
How did it go?

In the previous workshop we talked about what is important for the admissions officers who are reading your applications, and what is the overall impression and story you want to create with your application.

This second workshop will help you decide which university to apply to. Deciding where to apply is not easy because there are so many excellent universities in the United States. There is also a difference between a “university” and a “program.” Some smaller universities have great programs. For example, Many universities or programs are not well-known yet they offer fantastic education and overall experience.

Even if you think you know where you want to apply to, we want to broaden your view and make sure you don’t miss some great opportunities. We will work together to prepare a good list of places for you. Remember, think outside of the box, don’t always look at big names and big schools, and have confidence in yourself and your choices.

Good luck.
