getting into grad school: an opportunity
July 16, 2007 § Leave a comment
For anyone who may be considering grad school, I have come across an excellent opportunity. The University of Florida is hosting a Campus Visitation Program to promote diversity.
What this means is that if you are a prospective student that is underrepresented in graduate studies — ethnic and cultural minority groups (African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native Alaskans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, etc.), students underrepresented in their academic fields (males in nursing, females in engineering, European-Americans in African studies, etc.) and first-generation college graduates- you are eligible to attend this program.
It’s a 3-day program where you will have the opportunity to meet with graduate students, faculty, and administration. Most costs are covered by the school, so you really have nothing to lose, and everything to gain by meeting and greeting before submitting your application. Good luck!
