Description

Professionals, undergraduates, and current graduate students wanting to pursue further education . . .

1. Are you starting your graduate school application journey right now, but unsure of which programs to apply for or which advisors to pursue?

2. Are you getting graduate school application decisions back right now, but unsure of how to choose between different programs and advisors?

3. Are you wanting more funding for graduate school, but unsure of how you can get it or what can make up for less funding?


If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this course is for you. By investing your time and effort into this series of lectures and self-reflection exercises, you'll be able to (1) develop clear reasons for (not) choosing different programs and advisors, (2) learn different negotiation mindsets and practices which can add $1,000s to your graduate school funding package, and (3) protect yourself from traps many potential graduate students face (e.g., wasting time applying to programs which aren't right for you, picking toxic advisors who can hurt your career, and missing out on $1,000s in extra funding).


If you are hesitant on investing your time and money on this course, here are several additional benefits you'll probably not get from other sources (e.g., free Youtube videos and blogs):

(1) Relevant advice from someone who's recently applied for, gotten into, and graduated early with honors from prestigious graduate schools (i.e., Wake Forest University, Purdue University, and Michigan State University);

(2) Insights from a former PhD and MA student who had the full spectrum of academic advisors (e.g., abusive and toxic ones as well as consummate and kind professionals);

(3) Expertise from a professional negotiation researcher and teacher who, before becoming those things, negotiated over $15,000 in extra funding from a single PhD program and over $12,000 from another;

(4) Comprehensive lists of factors you need to consider when choosing programs and advisors as well as crafting your graduate school experience to fit your needs;

(5) Connections to additional yet lesser-known resources which can give you one-on-one advice to optimize your graduate school experience;

(6) Guidance on who and what to ask to determine fit between your program, your advisor, and you.
