Explore Graduate School Seminars (EGSS)

The Explore Graduate School Seminars (EGSS), in conjunction with the Princeton Review and our campus partners, provide prospective graduate students with tools and resources, including free and low-cost test preparation courses, to be a successful graduate school applicant.

When exploring graduate schools it is important to gather as much information as possible. The Graduate Schools Comparison Worksheet and The Graduate Admission Timetable will help you begin your search.
