Guide to Grad School offers advice, how-to's and even an occasional horror story aimed at helping you, fair reader, enter the grad school search well armed with handy information. 

While most of the content provided here comes courtesy of the Graduate School at the University of Northern Colorado, you'll notice our aim isn't to draw you to UNC but to inform your search, encourage your explorations and offer our enthusiasm for a decision well made. 

We don't know your purpose in seeking an advanced degree, but we applaud your courage and curiosity-- and we wish you well! If we can be more helpful, or if you have ideas for future Guide to Grad School content, please say so.

Best, the Graduate School
