Webinar # 2: The Grad School Decision: Should I go, what will it cost and how do I pay?
Tuesday, April 25, 2017
8:00-9:00 PM EST

Attaining an advanced degree can be a great investment in your career but have you considered your reasons for pursuing and the path you plan to take after? What kind of return on this investment in your professional growth and development can you expect with different degrees? What will grad school actually cost and how do you pay for it? 

Whether you are considering starting graduate school this fall or in the future, join us for a presentation led by Bank of America’s partner, Money Management International that aims to equip corps members, alums and staff with tips and ideas for evaluating the decision to pursue an advanced degree, analyzing the cost of attendance and developing strategies to pay for your degree through loans, scholarships, employer benefits and other forms of financial aid.

City Year alums shared perspectives on the decision to pursue grad school.
