Preparation for admission to a professional or graduate school consists of (1) a broad educational experience, (2) courses that meet the specific admission requirements of the school the student plans to attend, (3) major and minor subjects that allow for concentrated study in a field of interest and that provide an alterna- tive career direction if it becomes desirable, (4) relevant work or research experience, and (5) standardized test scores, such as the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, etc. GRADUATE SCHOOL 309 Hovey Hall, (309) 438-2583 The Graduate School offers master’s degree programs in most fields in which undergraduate programs are available.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
