Harder to get in a grad if you attended as an undergrad?


Recommended Posts

I've heard a few times that graduate schools are less willing to accept applicants who attended the school as an undergrad...not exactly sure why (I've heard various reasons, such as the desire to diversify student body, etc) Is this just a baseless rumor? Any thoughts? Thanks

Our program has one or two per cohort who were undergrads here. You could always just ask a professor. Alternatively, many programs list their grad students online and link to individual web pages with CV's. You may be able to see how common it is.

You may also want to think for a moment about why you want to apply to the grad program at your university. If your interests match the program's strength, then go for it. But be sure you're not fitting your interests to what the program does rather than the other way around.
