Graduate School: Where To Go & How To Get There

As we reach the end of the 120-credit requirement list and our Degree Audit Report is turning green, a lot of us are wondering: what now?

There is a fork in the road and we can either go two ways: more school or more work. The recent budget cuts to higher education are swaying our minds from the possibility of textbooks and student loans. However, the economy is preventing us from starting our careers we've worked so hard to begin. So what to do and where to go?

Well, the first glimmer of a silver lining rests within scholarships, grants, and fellowships. If you're involved in any club, Greek chapter, multi-cultural center, or foreign exchange program; you're chances at receiving funding will increase. Just put yourself out there and you never know money might just fall from the sky. Here is a list of scholarships available in the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication.
The deadline is in 11 days!

If you’re looking at moving forward to graduate school the practice GRE (Graduate Requirement Exam) is offered FOR FREE on November 13 from 8-5 in the CUE. WSU also offers free MCAT, DAT, OAT, PCAT, and LSAT practice tests for other WSU students on this day. For more information, go here.

Once you've figured out the finances, finished taking the examinations, the finals step is deciding where to go for your masters/doctorate degree. Whether you wish to stay within the field of communication or decide to venture out, here is a list of the best graduate schools in the United States.

By the time you have spent a few more years in the classroom, the economic storm should have settled and you will have obtained not only more knowledge, but a faster route to eliminating debt as well.
