About the class

Applying to graduate school can be an arduous process: with so many programs to choose from, and often with each requiring its own suite of prerequisites, recommender qualifications, and professional experiences, just submitting an application can feel like a graduate-level project in and of itself. Fortunately, there’s help: join Varsity Tutors for a detailed overview of the admissions process, including:

•Key criteria to consider when choosing a degree path and target school
•The four core elements of a graduate school application, and the “fine print” to seek out long before you begin your application
•Lessons learned from those who came before you, of applications deferred or denied by details you need to consider
•Standardized testing strategies to plan your GRE journey and align your practice with peak performance

This StarCourse is no longer available.

But don’t fret… we have more classes to choose from!
