Pre-Professional/Graduate School Planning

#GCGoingPlaces Grad School 1

The Career Center has created the Pre-Professional & Graduate School Planning program to act as a centralized location for students to gain information about applying for and choosing graduate and professional programs to best suit their career goals.  Partnering with Academic Advising, faculty, and other campus partners allows the advisors to act as liaisons to connect students with the resources and offices that will benefit the student's individualized needs.  Meeting with one of the pre-professional & graduate advisors can help students with the application process, building resumes, personal statement writing, identifying testing, and much more.  Throughout the year, the Pre-Professional & Graduate School Planning program will hold events and informational sessions to keep students informed of opportunities and frequently asked questions.  Make an appointment today through Handshake!  Any graduate/professional programs or related programs wishing to program with Georgia College students can contact Jackie Stamper by phone at 478-445-5384, or by email at

It is important to remember that there is not a specific major needed to get into law school.  What admission decisions are based on is overall GPA, LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, and a written personal statement.  The Career Center can offer advice and tips on these areas to help students be competitive candidates, regardless of their undergraduate major.
