In this exciting new book, experienced writer, professor, and teacher Gregory J. Privitera—2013 Advisor of the Year at St. Bonaventure University and recipient of the SBU Award for Professional Excellence in teaching in 2014—draws on his extensive expertise to provide students a step by step plan for success in preparing for and applying to graduate school. Broad in scope and wealthy in detail, Getting Into Graduate School includes insights into how graduate school selection committees come to a decision on candidates, a concrete freshman-to-senior-year plan, and samples of application materials, resumes, and cover letters. This empowering book provides the whole thing students in psychology and the behavioral sciences want to map their course to academic and professional success.
