- I received half-tuition scholarships that will cover two years of graduate study.
- In addition to scholarships, I received federal loans and work-study, which covers my cost of attendance. (I did NOT have to use private or GradPLUS loans, which have higher interest rates.)
- I received a semester of course exemptions. I have more freedom to choose courses across the university. I could also graduate early too.
If you are planning to attend graduate school within the next two years, I highly recommend this website: Your Guide to Getting into Grad School. It summarizes everything you need to do, such as writing personal statements, applying for scholarships/financial aid, and much more.
Orientation is a month away! I will travel and have fun!
