brainman Posted November 11, 2013 Share Posted November 11, 2013 Hi folks, I would like to request some advice from those of you who are more familiar with the grad school admissions process than I am... I am a junior neuroscience major at a small liberal arts college and currently have a 3.8 GPA. Since the start of my college career I've been pursuing the ever-so-popular pre-med route, but I have found that my interests have changed substantially. Over the past few years, I have become more and more involved with my admissions office as a student ambassador and now find myself happiest in the college admissions setting. I've decided that this is the career I would like to pursue. That being said, I have a few concerns. First, for a career in college admissions, is it preferable to get a job after graduation and then going to get a higher degree later? Or is it better to go to grad school directly out of college? Second, I am assuming that my masters would have to be in higher education administration (or something related). I am concerned about this since my bachelors degree will be in neuroscience, a field completely unrelated to anything having to do with education administration. Will this essentially make me unqualified to apply to higher ed programs??? Any advice would be appreciated. I'm rather stressed out with the major career path change, but after thinking it over extensively, I think this is the right decision for me. Thank you! It is very much appreciated.
