This is one of three papers proposed to accompany an interactive seminar called "Getting Into Graduate School."
This paper is a practical guide for applicants who wish to gain admission to graduate programs in engineering in the United States. It discusses the typical timeline and key components of the graduate school application process, and presents detailed suggestions for developing academic resumes for graduate school applications. The paper also discusses the most common types of statements requested as part of graduate school application processes (academic, personal, and combined) and offers specific suggestions for developing strong statements.
