Why attend Graduate/Professional School?
More students are going to Graduate and Professional school now than in the past. Researching jobs that will be available to you with an advanced degree and weighing whether you actually need the education for the jobs you wish to pursue is a good first step. Thoughtful consideration of why you are applying to programs might come after working a few years in an entry level job. Just know it’s never too late to pursue a degree if that’s what you want!
