Linda Abraham to discuss what college students and graduates need to know about applying for graduate school September 7, 2010 at 6 pm Pacific/ 9 pm Eastern on #CollegeChat
Los Angeles, CA, September 1, 2010—Linda Abraham, a graduate school admissions expert and president of Accepted.com, will provide college students and graduates with an overview of what they need to know about applying for and preparing for graduate school during #CollegeChat on Twitter on September 7, 2010 at 6 pm Pacific/ 9 pm Eastern, Theresa Smith, principal of Pathway Communications and moderator of #CollegeChat announced today.
Attending graduate school is a goal of many college graduates especially in a turbulent job market. Long term statistics show that this strategy may pay off. According to the Census Bureau, in 2008 college graduates between 25 and 29 with a master’s degree made on average $7,954 more annually than those with only a bachelor’s degree.
During the upcoming live #TwitterChat, Abraham (http://twitter.com/accepted) will address questions on how college students and graduates can best prepare including:
- Does going to graduate school make sense financially
- What are the differences between the graduate school admission process and the undergraduate admissions process
- Should college students go directly to graduate school
- What is a personal statement and why is it critical
- Where are good places to start researching graduate programs, especially MBA, Law and Medical School
- What steps should college students take during college to prepare for graduate school
- How to finance graduate school, how much can be borrowed
