Question description

  • How many schools? Which schools?

  • Do they have prerequisite courses?

  • Do you need research experience?

  • GPA and other requirements?

  • How do you apply? What is included in the application?

  • What are the requirements to complete the program?

  • What is the expected cost?

  • What job do you hope to get after earning your graduate degree? What are the salary
