Graduate Admissions Tests
Study for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and other professional exams (e.g., GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, DAT, and OAT). Many of these assessments test for cumulative knowledge and are not tests that you can just study the night before. Be sure to give yourself ample time to study and take the test a second time if you did not get the scores you were hoping to receive.
Career Services can assist with any stage of this process, including discussing your educational goals, completing a practice interview, and looking over your application materials.
