The Value of MENTORS
Mentors will help you with the process of preparing for (and eventually applying to) graduate school. Mentors who have careers that you are most interested in pursuing may be able to give the best advice about how to go about pursuing it. Most graduate applications require 3 professional letters of recommendation. These letters of recommendation can seriously help or hurt your application. On our "applying" page, we have information about how to request letters. In preparing to apply, it will be helpful to you to think about pursuing opportunities that can connect you with supervisors and/or mentors who later may be able to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf.
