Talk 1-1 with 20+ Grad Schools

December 3, 2015

There’s a line out the door, ten people crowding each grad school’s table when you finally make it inside, and the gym smells like last night’s basketball game. If this scene sounds familiar to you, you’ve probably been to a few in-person grad school fairs. There’s a better way to find a grad school.

Sign up for the AmeriCorps Alums December 10th Virtual Grad School Fair instead. You’ll be able to browse more than 20 schools from across the country and have uninterrupted, one-on-one time with grad school recruiters.
