What should I do in my undergraduate years to set myself up to be accepted at a great school for graduate school?
I want to make sure that I'm doing all I can to get accepted at highly competitive school for my graduate work. What should I be doing?
Hi Kaitlyn, I have found the graduate schools want students who are active in the community (volunteering is key, even if it's unstructured like helping your neighbors) and show a commitment to achieve things. Being able to show that you get what you want proves that you will work hard to complete the graduate degree. I'd also recommend that you work either during graduate school or before so you get the most out of it. When I was taking graduate courses I worked full time, and found that many of the topics covered in school were relevant to my daily work life.
