As application deadlines for graduate school programs approach, you are probably wondering how to make your application package the most outstanding to get into your top graduate program choices. Besides completing the personal statements, filling out applications, and searching for funding, you are also trying to figure out how to navigate graduate school as an undocumented student. To ease the stress of this process, we invite you to join us for a graduate school application clinic particularly designed for the undocumented student population. We will cover the nuts and bolts of the graduate school application process and also provide a space in which you can interact with fellow students embarking on a similar journey!
