  • Attend the Spring Internship & Career Expo
    (Career Services).
  • Attend career advising workshops offered through Career Services.
  • Work on your resume.
  • Meet with your faculty advisor or pre-professional advisor to:
    • Determine if your current grades are strong enough to pursue graduate or professional school.
    • Research graduate or professional schools.
    • Determine the best time to take entrance exams such as the GRE, LSAT, & MCAT.
    • Discuss letters of recommendation with your faculty advisor.
    • Investigate assistantships, scholarships and fellowships offered by graduate programs.
    • Supplement your coursework with courses that will strengthen your application.
  • Meet with a CAS academic advisor to:
    • Discuss whether you need to modify your goals based on a change of interest or plans to attend graduate or professional school.
    • Discuss whether you should add a minor.
    • Talk about study abroad programs and how international programs may meet your graduation requirements and complement your academic program.
