How many graduate schools can you visit in one summer?
What if you could check out 50 in two hours?
At the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, you can! The NCCWSL Graduate School Fair will be back in 2013 and promises to be bigger than ever!
At the Graduate School Fair, you’ll learn more about graduate programs that you’ve only read about or visited online. Talk to administrators, ask your questions, and most importantly, distinguish yourself from other candidates by meeting face-to-face.
Not sure if graduate school is in your future? What better way to find out than by discussing your options with students and directors from the programs you want to apply to? What can grad school do for you and your career? The Graduate School Fair lets you talk to experts who know the value of these programs and the impact that they can have on your career path.
Did you know that the Graduate School Fair can also be your free ticket to NCCWSL? Reach out to your school’s administrators, and offer to represent the school at the fair in exchange for your NCCWSL registration fee. It’s a win-win for both of you.
“I was surprised to find out about areas of study at the Graduate School Fair that I had not learned about in my searches before. Before, I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do, but now I feel that I should take time to focus on what I want to study. During the conference, I realized I wanted more room to grow in a career and to be a leader rather than just getting a job.”
— Camille Thomas, 2012 NCCWSL scholarship recipient, sponsored by the Jenny Gonzalez Perdomo Memorial Fund
