Applying to graduate school is a big decision that can be confusing and time-consuming. Idealist has assembled a team of graduate school admissions experts to help you navigate the application and financial aid processes.

In this episode of #GradSchool101, the experts explain what they’re looking for when they read personal statements and recommendations, and provide tips on how to write effective statements and get great recs.

If you have more questions, or want to make a personal connection to the graduate schools you’re interested in, attend an Idealist Grad Fair. Held each fall in cities around the country, Idealist Grad Fairs connect prospective students with graduate schools in fields such as public administration, international affairs, education, public policy, public interest law, social work, nonprofit management, global and public health, theology, environmental science, and socially responsible business. The fairs are free and open to anyone interested in learning about grad school.
