USD Career Services assists students/alumni with graduate school planning in two ways:
- Sponsoring an annual Graduate School Fair
- Offering individualized career counseling sessions
Students/alumni typically use individual sessions to examine motivations for attending graduate school, to assess choices of graduate schools, to receive assistance in preparing applications, and to practice their skills in mock graduate school interviews. If you would like to meet with a counselor to discuss graduate school, please call 619-260-4654 to schedule an appointment.
