Quotes from past participants:

“This event was extremely entertaining and helpful. It informed me about several aspects of the graduate school application process that I never knew about. It was a great mix of fun, useful information and activities.”

“I learned a lot from this program and I feel way more prepared about the grad school application process, now. I am very grateful for the opportunity to attend.”

“What I learned in this workshop is invaluable. Without an opportunity like this, I do not know how or where I would have started in my graduate school application process. With the motivation and tools he provided for my success, this event made me excited to begin the application process.”
