- To begin your search, consider your geographic range of schooling options. Think about whether you wish to stay in the Long Island/Manhattan area or venture out further. Also, if you prefer a program with either fully in-person instruction, remote learning options, or a hybrid model of both.
- As you are evaluating each program, look over each of their application components. Identify which items remain similar to other programs you are evaluating, and others that are unique or have different prompts being asked of you to provide.
- If your application requires a resume/CV or an interview component, utilize Career Planning & Development on campus to access their support and resources.
- Build a strong professional network amongst faculty & staff on campus. You'll need to call upon these relationships when you will be asked later on for letters of reference.
