Graduate School Admissions

Graduate School Admissions

If you are a college graduate or an undergraduate who is nearing graduation in Phoenix or Arizona, you may be interested in pursuing additional education beyond your bachelor’s degree as either a job requirement or to help you stand out to future employers. Gaining admission into the graduate program of your choice may be difficult because of the limited number of spots that these programs have for entering students. When you get help from the expert educational consultants at Going Ivy, you may increase the strength of your application so that you can gain admission into the program of your choice.

Why Understanding the Graduate School Admissions Process is Important

When you prepare to apply to graduate school, it is important for you to understand that it differs from the undergraduate admissions process. Unlike high school students who can be “undecided” when they apply to college, students who apply to graduate school typically apply to individual programs within a school. One university may have different graduate programs that have different selectivity standards. For instance, Harvard reports that it accepts just 4 to 5 percent of the applicants to its doctoral program in English. While it is still very selective with its MBA applicants, the Harvard Business School reports that it has an acceptance rate that is more than double that of the doctoral program in English at 11 percent. It is obviously important for you to thoroughly research the available programs so that you can target the programs that fit you the best and that offer you the greatest chance of getting admitted.

The Going Ivy Difference: Getting Accepted into Graduate Programs

One of the primary reasons that Going Ivy is the best choice for helping you gain admission into your preferred graduate program is the unique approach that we take. We recognize that every student is different and has his or her own strengths, goals and needs. We develop graduate admissions plans and roadmaps that are tailored to you and your individual characteristics and goals. After developing your strategic admissions plan, we then work with you hand-in-hand throughout the entire process so that you can submit the strongest application possible to the programs and schools of your choice.

Preparing for getting into the graduate program and school of your dreams can start during your freshman year of college. While this may sound like it is early, there are certain career paths that require the completion of education beyond college, including doctors and lawyers among others. It is very important that you keep your grades up during your undergraduate years. If you are struggling with a class, we have world-class tutors who are among the top minds in their respective fields who can help you. As the time for taking your graduate school admissions tests draws near, we can work with you to help you prepare for your tests so you can obtain the highest scores of which you are capable.

The graduate admissions tests that you will need to take depend on the graduate program that you want to complete. If you want to attend law school, you will need to take the LSAT. For medical school, you will need to take the MCAT. Students who wish to attend a business school may need to take the GMAT, and those who want to gain admission into other graduate programs will need to take the GRE. International students will also need to take the TOEFL if English is not their first language. We can help you to prepare for any of these tests so that you can improve your scores from any practice exams you’ve taken.

Our expert team members are also able to help you with gathering your materials and preparing your applications. We can consult with you about how to best showcase your research goals and your knowledge so that you will be a more attractive candidate for the graduate admissions officers who will review your applications. Your educational consultant can also explain how the essays on your graduate school applications differ from the essays that you wrote for your undergraduate applications. With our comprehensive admissions consulting, we can also help you to identify potential financial aid options for attending your graduate programs.
