Peregrin’s Answer

Some really great answers posted here.

My additional advice when thinking of post-graduate school is what is your purpose for the degree. Career related degrees, it would likely be more cost-effective to get an entry level job with a company that will pay some college costs (often towards degrees aligned to the work you are doing), which may take longer to get the degree, but reduces the out of pocket costs to you and you can often bring work experience to the degree. Additionally, this might guide you to the type of graduate school you are looking for.

Conversely, if you have the means to simply be a grad student pursuing additional learning, than you really need to look based off what you major in college would be. That would drive the list of top grad schools and identify which of the various entrance exam(s) you might require.

Best of luck to you and your pursuits!

Patricia’s Answer

An option might be for an employer to pay for technical training or some companies will also pay for a Masters where it relates to one’s role. Some examples are Networking or cyber security certifications or a MBA program.

Tiffany’s Answer

You’ll want to speak with your high school career counselor and ask about opportunities for either attending a community college or going away to a school. Be sure to ask about scholarship opportunities and criteria to be awarded. Most important to remember is there is a school for everyone!!! Good luck and stay strong and focused!!

Anny’s Answer

Hi, Hawkes
As you are completing college, you will have the opportunity to move into the workforce or to continue with a graduate degree. To continue on with a graduate degree, you would want to figure out what specifically you would like to study and which colleges specialize in that area. One way to figure this out is to see where the research (that you are interested in) is originating from. Additionally, your department advisor will be able to help you figure out your next step.

To apply to graduate school:
Depending on the field, you will need to complete a test (similar to SAT) as part of your graduate school admissions process
- Medicine --> MCAT
- Business --> GMAT
- Law --> LSAT
- Graduate school --> GRE

Good luck to you, Hawkes!
