Last chance to tell the school your thoughts in the survey

Here is a message from Sara Kim, Ph.D., associate dean for Educational Quality Improvement: Your class has a 65 percent survey response rate (see graph below). We will be closing the survey on Friday, June 23, and with your help, we can end on a strong note by raising the rate to at least 70 percent.

Thank you so much for your time and candid input into the survey. For those who started the survey, you can return to the same link and pick up where you left off. The customized survey link is emailed to you by every Tuesday afternoon.

Good luck with the Explore & Focus Phase!

Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

Now is a great time to start writing your personal statement! It is nice to have it done early so you know your narrative well when asked about it on your rotations in your desired field. You’ll also be able to give it to your letter writers so they get to know you better. They may even offer feedback! Of course, you’ll add more to it after your summer rotations, but get started on your Personal Statement now using the career advising resources.
