Graduate Launch Programs
Graduate Launch is proud to offer two packages designed to help students achieve their professional goals.
Pre-Graduate School Admissions Counseling Package
Because graduate admissions are a highly selective, sometimes confusing process, Graduate Launch developed a program to help candidates unravel the complexities and nuances in choosing the best graduate schools. The Pre-Graduate School Admissions Consulting Package includes 2 private session meetings of 2 hours in length. In these sessions, the consultant will help assess the candidate's academic and professional background candidate in order to develop a comprehensive graduate school admissions plan. As experienced veterans of the industry, the consultant will also help the candidate with important career decisions related to their future graduate school goals.
Graduate School Admissions Consulting Package
The Graduate School Admissions Consulting Package is designed to maximize a graduate school candidate's chance at entering into their program and school of choice. This comprehensive package focuses on bringing out the unique qualities of the candidate through strategically refined essays, meticulously collected recommendations, and intensive interview preparation. Candidates will have unlimited consulting hours within one admissions season. Due to the highly specialized nature of each school, the initial targeted school is at a flat rate of $4,500 with each additional school for $1,000 if selected at time of purchase. Any additional schools added after the initial purchase will cost $1,500.
Graduate Launch Faculty
The Graduate Launch team is composed of highly credentialed experts in graduate admissions counseling. Due to the highly selective nature of graduate admissions, the Graduate Launch faculty is composed of premier level consultants, individuals with proven writing ability and graduate admissions experience.
