Reasons to Attend:

  1. For students whose careers may require a graduate degree, it is helpful to check out different schools, their programs, and their requirements – this would help you plan ahead on the experiences, classes, and skills you should gain prior to applying.
  2. For students applying to grad school soon, it’s great to meet with grad school admissions representatives because they may be able to share insider tips, suggestions, info about fee waivers, and more. It may also help the school/program know your interest through this visit.
  3. For students who are exploring post-graduation options, this is a way to explore the different graduate programs available out there.
