How to Choose the RIGHT Graduate School

We couldn’t do our national survey of current graduate students without asking our respondents to reflect on their grad school search experience and to give some advice to the next generation of grad students on how to choose the right graduate school. Nearly half of our respondents indicate that knowing what they know now, they would change the way they researched grad schools. Read their recommendations...

Built for students of all backgrounds

If an advanced degree is somewhere in your future, it's never too early, or late, to get started... we got you.

You don’t need to be perfect

You just need to fit. Programs have unique wants and needs in their students. Whether you think you have the perfect resume, or the worst, share your interests and what you do well.

Lightning fast

You'll see a list of programs that match you as soon as you sign up. Signing up takes less than 5 minutes. As you continue improving your profile, the matches get better.

Be a magnet

You should like the idea that programs can come to find you. Just like you build a profile on Gradschoolmatch and find programs, programs build profiles and find students. There is nothing like Gradschoolmatch.

Connect & Communicate

The tool that students underutilize the most is communication. Your chances improve immensely by communicating with programs BEFORE you apply. Ask the right questions. Get the right answers.

We are Academics

We’ve applied to graduate school, run graduate programs, recruited students, and made admissions decisions. We know how it works.
Based on our experience recruiting graduate and undergraduate students, and working way too hard to find the right graduate programs, we created Gradschoolmatch to make advanced degree recruiting a two-way conversation.

Dedicated to serving traditional, non-profit universities and ambitious students everywhere.
