Ask yourself these questions as you decide on your graduate school future:
How far away from family and friends do I want to be?
How big of a school do I want to attend and what about class sizes?
Small town or big city?
What kind of housing is available and what’s the cost of living?
What kind of social, cultural and career opportunities are available?
Follow these steps and make a decision that works for you
Consider visiting the campuses and meeting with faculty and current students.
Look into faculty research and areas of specialization (This gives you a better idea of the scope of the program.)
Look into admissions standards and school accreditation.
Carefully review all application requirements.
