Graduate school is a big decision. Think about your career goals and why you want to attend.
Experience in the job market is valuable and some companies will pay for your advanced degree after you have been employed for a certain amount of time.
I believe that graduate school is the best place of having challenges and making mistakes academically and learning from them.

A personal statement and resume are a common part of the graduate school application. Don’t wait to start writing your personal statement and résumé.
A personal statement highlights your strengths and experiences.
Resumes include information about your education and experiences in ways that target your intended audience.
