Career Services provides information and resources to students considering graduate school, including law school and medical school.
UMW will be holding a Graduate School Fair on April 4, 2013 from 11-2 in the Anderson Center.
Graduate School Resources
The Office of Career Services has a large number of print resources in the resource library. Complete sets of Peterson’s Guides to Graduate Programs, volumes on specific topics such as getting into law school and information on various standardized tests are available.
Many UMW students choose to attend graduate school after graduation. Sometimes previous experience is required before a graduate program will consider your application. Students who are most happy with their graduate school experience have thoroughly explored their degree program and have a clear idea of how the degree fits into their career plans. Our LinkedIn group has friends and alumni of the University of Mary Washington who are willing to discuss their graduate degree programs and careers.
