At HS&M, we understand that the decision to pursue an MBA, J.D., LL.M., M.D., D.D.S, or other graduate degree in science or engineering, the humanities, or social sciences is a life-changing choice that should provide the foundation for your future vocational success and personal fulfillment. If you’ve decided to pursue admission to business, law or medical school, or to a graduate program in science, engineering, the humanities or social sciences, you are undoubtedly an individual accustomed to making critical decisions, working hard, and finding success. Even those who have successfully navigated the undergraduate admission process, however, find the complexity, cost, intensity, and highly competitive landscape of the graduate school admission process daunting, mysterious, and stressful. Graduate and professional school planning require considerable specialized knowledge and technical detail not found in the undergraduate admission process.
Fortunately, with the right planning and counseling, the journey towards the professional career you have chosen to pursue can be a highly informed and deliberate one that unveils the mysteries of graduate admission and maximizes the successful candidacy. HS&M’s experience in the graduate admission world underscores the fact that working with an experienced advisor can help the applicant avoid costly errors, uninformed admission strategies, loss of precious time, later employment difficulties, and unnecessary stress in their efforts to enhance their personal and professional development through a graduate education.
HS&M’s combined decades as graduate level faculty evaluating applications and preparing accepted students for professional careers is reflected in the range, depth, and personalization of the services we provide. Because each of our clients brings a unique set of advantages and vulnerabilities to the challenge of shaping a successful candidacy, our work together is expressly designed for the individual. We offer knowledgeable and efficient assistance with each component of the graduate application through focused consultations, and provide confidential guidance through the entire process, beginning with an initial evaluation of your candidacy and continuing through collaborative work to the strategic management of wait list, negative, or multiple acceptance responses. Our comprehensive form of assistance makes our consultants available to you as needed until the schools to which you applied have addressed your quest for admission. Please see our page outlining the Graduate School Planning Process for more information.
We look forward to accompanying you with both critical individualized advice and practical assistance towards your admirable goal of becoming a highly educated professional.
