EtiquetteDinner Flyer (2)


Are your comfortable eating a meal with a potential employer?  The Professional Networking Dinner goes beyond explaining which fork to use by giving you the critical tools you need to feel calm, cool and collected in a networking dinner situation, so you can focus on the conversation more than the consommé.  Follow this link for more details.  Please RSVP by Friday, April 4th.  Hope to see you there!

Have you ever wondered what program directors are thinking when they decide who gets into graduate programs and who doesn’t?  As we learned in our first workshop, admissions committees take a holistic approach to evaluating candidates, meaning that there are many factors that contribute to admissions decisions.  Join us at 4:00 p.m. today in Room 120 of Morrison Hall to hear directly from five faculty members about what they look for in top graduate program candidates.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what to do to set yourself apart (in a good way)!  As a bonus, stick around for free pizza at the conclusion of the workshop.

How Do I Pay for Graduate School? Workshop Today!

BlogImage GradSchoolWkshpOverview

For many students, the question of how to pay for graduate and professional education is a lot more difficult to answer than whether or not they want to attend graduate school.  When a student may already be facing loan repayment for their undergraduate degree, the idea of spending even more money for an advanced degree can be quite daunting.  Join us this afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in Room 100 of Morrison Hall for the second in our Graduate School Workshop Series, “How Do I Pay for Graduate School?”

Mr. Amine Qourzal from Baylor’s Student Financial Aid Office will present on assessing the financial costs of attending graduate school, loans, and making smart financial decisions.  Come learn about your options, and stay for free pizza after the presentation.

As an aside, students who are considering applying to graduate school have the opportunity from Kaplan to take free practice exams.  Click here to read more about opportunities to take a practice MCAT, GRE, LSAT, PCAT, GMAT, DAT, or OAT.

Wherever your Spring Break plans take you, I hope you take time to rest and enjoy a much deserved break.  While you have time, think about what you have accomplished during the first half of the semester.  Also, take time to think about the things you want to improve in the second half.  Have you thought about your summer plans yet?  If not, Spring Break might be a great time to network, especially if you will be in your hometown, and explore summer job or internship opportunities related to your career field of interest.  As always, if you need a little guidance with your career plans, please visit us in Career and Professional Development when you return from the break.  Enjoy your time off!
