About 18-20% of each Dickinson College graduating class goes directly on to graduate or professional school; one year after graduation, an additional 10-15% enroll; five years after graduation, approximately 60% have enrolled, according to the latest 5-year survey.

The Center for Advising, Internships & Lifelong Career Development is here to help with the entire application process for both students and alumni. We offer information on the general graduate school process, such as a recommended timeline, information on how to find programs, and information for exams and exam preparation. We also review personal statements and other application materials. The primary resource for students when selecting programs in their field of study, however, is faculty. Students need to work closely with faculty members throughout the graduate school process. Additionally, pre-health and pre-law students should also work with the pre-health advisor and pre-law advisor in the Center for Advising, Internships & Lifelong Career Development. 


The most helpful resource for parents with a student embarking on the graduate or professional school process are our resources geared toward students, which are located on our Students page.
