Current students know best

This post is dedicated to our amazing student admissions assistants: Kiela, Mike, Jessica and Rachel.  In addition to being full-time students, they also work at least fifteen hours a week in our admissions office – answering calls, responding to emails, meeting with prospective students and helping us with a zillion projects. They are masters of our daily processes and we truly couldn’t operate as efficiently and with such impeccable customer service without them. You would be amazing with the range of calls/emails we receive, everything from the standard, “What is your minimum GRE requirement,” to the more, let’s say – interesting, “what should I do with my life.”

They never cease to amaze me with their wealth of knowledge and patience. As you explore your graduate school option and begin the application process, let me wrap up this week with two pieces of advice:

#1: Be nice to our student admissions assistants.
#2: Read Kiela’s (MA International Human Rights) most recent post – a current student’s advice to prospective students. Warning: This is a tough love post.
