You’ve decided to attend graduate or professional school—what’s next? The Career Development Center (CDC) is here to help you research and evaluate schools, explore funding, write your personal statement, prepare for interviews, and more.

After deciding that graduate/professional school is right for you, the next step is to research programs that match your interests and fit your needs. Don’t worry about what you majored in as an undergrad, you don’t necessarily need to continue studying it in grad school—instead, focus on your interests, talk to professionals, and research various programs.

To start:

  • Visit or request information from schools that interest you
  • Attend graduate fairs and forums
  • Speak with WPI faculty for advice and to help you sort through your interests and priorities
  • Connect with WPI Alumni to learn about their experiences with various graduate programs
  • Explore the LinkedIn Alumni or Graduate School features to learn more about popular programs and paths
