Graduate School Application Tips

Many of my former students are planning to go to graduate school, and I figured that there are actually many of them who just have the intention to enroll, but do not know exactly how they would do it the right way. This article,I suppose, can be helpful to those who are planning to apply for graduate school.

How to apply to graduate school

However, it can also be an eye-opening and fulfilling part of your academic career—and it opens doors you’ll appreciate for the rest of your life. Here are some of the things a few of us at Lifehacker learned from our graduate schooling that you can take with you going in.

One of the most surprising things I learned in grad school was how fiercely competitive my classmates were.

Instead, my classmates were intent on making sure they were at the top of the class, well-known and liked by professors and classmates, and as active in class activities as possible.
