Claflin students had resumes in hand as they entered the gym for the Graduate School Fair on Oct. 26.

Students gathered information in order to weigh options after their undergraduate careers. And they had the chance to give their information to different schools with the promise that graduate schools would keep the students updated.

“I think it’s outstanding,” Medical University of South Carolina representative Chris Powers said of the graduate school fair.

Many students were in line to get more information from MUSC and about the requirements to apply. MUSC admits roughly 166 students into the graduate medical school each year, Powers said.

“There are no specific requirements, but to get in the medical school, you have to have a strong background in the sciences,” Powers said. 

Mykel Jackson talked to different law school programs, even though he is a mass communications major.

“I want to do something in public relations law helping out artists who have deals and help with the contracts,” Jackson said. 

Many of the graduate schools offered internships. That attracted students to their tables.

Kiyra Roberts, a sophomore education major, said, “Fayetteville State University had programs for secondary education and a lot of internships that made me want to look at the school.”
