How to Get Into Grad School Part 2: Applying

There are multiple documents that need prepared for your graduate school application—bring those to this session! We will focus on how to write an excellent personal statement and (if required by your prospective schools of choice) a CV. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, work on your rough drafts of these documents, and receive valuable feedback on the graduate application process.

Submit to the Undergraduate Scholar

Deadline extended: submit to the Undergraduate Scholar by Sunday, October 12!

The Undergraduate Scholar is Indiana University’s student-run academic journal sponsored and published by the Hutton Honors College. We publish non-fiction essays of any length and from all disciplines, from art history to zoology. Each issue reflects our intellectual engagement with the political, social, moral, and aesthetic issues of both the past and present.

Any undergraduate student at Indiana University is eligible for publication regardless of class standing or major. If you are interested, please submit your writing—whatever topic or length! Email your essay to undergraduate.scholar@gmail.com or visit our website: http://www.indiana.edu/~uscholar/index.html

Job Search Support Group

Are you a College of Arts & Sciences senior graduating in December or May? Have you started your job search? Would you like the opportunity to share your experiences with your peers?

 

If you are starting your job search or just beginning the process and would like some additional guidance and support during the process, join us for a unique opportunity to talk with your peers about the mistakes, pitfalls, fears, and successes of the job search. Sometimes talking with your friends is the best way to learn what works and what not to do. This group will cover the important pieces of the job search including resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and transition, but is also an opportunity to talk with people who are in the same position as you. You will get ideas and advice from your peers as well as support from the Arts & Sciences Career Services and trained counselors.

 

If you are interested in joining the group or have additional questions, please contact Alison Smith (alelsmit@indiana.edu).

When: Wednesday for 5 sessions starting October 15 and ending November 12th , 5:30-7:00 pm
