Pacific pays for graduate record exams

posted in: Student Life | 0

The Career Development Center (CDC) offers many resources for students at Pacific.

One of the categories they excel in is helping students in regard to graduate school.

The Career Development Center helps students find graduate schools that would be a good fit for them.

The services they offer include crafting a personal statement, conducting mock interviews, and giving $150 dollars to students for graduate school expenses.

These expenses could include application fees, fees for the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), or other fees toward applying to graduate school.

This $150 is available to everyone on campus as long as they are actively involved in personal career planning with the CDC.

The center also asks that the students who receive the money are willing to become a mentor.

This would involve the mentor talking to underclassmen who are undecided about their major choice and why they chose it.

That is not the only help the center offers for students.

“We have a secret weapon, Professor Chris Lane,” CDC Associate Director June Dressler said.

In the spring, Lane hosts a free one-day GRE preparation course.

Lane periodically takes the GRE to see how it is changing so he is able to offer the best class possible for Pacific students.

This class is held on a Saturday and is a full day commitment, but is a bargain compared to other classes that can cost more than $200.

The CDC has many students who have used the help offered for GRE testing and the application process for graduate school but as Dressler said, “There is always room for more.”
