Applying to graduate school can be overwhelming. Navigating the academic statement of purpose, personal statement, letters of recommendation and the application itself can seem daunting, and prospective students may not know where to begin or where to turn with questions.
To provide guidance to prospective students on the next step in their academic journeys, the Graduate School Office of Access and Recruitment created the Consider Cornell programming series. This series, consisting of Consider Cornell: Explore and Consider Cornell: Experience, explains the intricacies of the graduate school application and admission processes. The programs are open to anyone interested in learning more about graduate education and are specifically designed to advance the Graduate School’s commitment to access, equity and inclusion and to enhance the diversity of Cornell’s graduate student population.
