“How to Choose a U.S. Graduate School” (Jia Guo, “US News & World Report”)

In “How to Choose a U.S. Graduate School,” Jia Guo makes several insightful suggestions for international applicants to consider. Many business schools publish statistics on their websites on the job functions and industries chosen by students for their summer internship and post-graduation positions. Look for the list of companies that recruit at the school. Find out what percentage of graduates end up in the city or part of the country where you want to live. Look into the resources that the school offers to support international students. Most importantly, reach out to current students and alumni from your country who share your background or whose careers inspire you. You can learn much more from a frank and honest discussion with someone who has been in your shoes than you can from reading the promotional material that fills a school’s website.
