April Posted December 3, 2009 Share Posted December 3, 2009 Okay, here is the deal with me: Started this wild idea of wanting to be an academic advisor and would love to go to grad school and gain experience and the beginning of a career. My GPA isn't great, taking the GRE in the next few weeks, have three letters of recommendation lined up, and working on my various SOPs. I want to get into a decent school but since I know I have no shot at an amazing school, I am aiming for great, solid programs in places that I would like to live. The programs I am looking at need to have assistantships/internships, varied class topics, mid-level out-of-state tuition (at most) and be relatively affordable to live in the area. My two top choices are University of WI-La Crosse and Buffalo State University. Random? I live near Portland State University but their program does not excite me. Any sort of advisement about getting a degree in Higher Education Administration, College Personnel, and/or Student Affairs? I am the only one I know who is doing the "grad school' thing and as of right now I am unemployed and trying to narrow down possibilities so that I can apply and not waste other peoples' time or my money. I also know realistically the earliest deadlines I can do is Feb 1st, which has taken a few schools out of the running for me. GREATLY appreciate any advice or website to refer me to. I have already looked up the NASPA and NACADA for resources as well. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
