Are you considering applying to grad school, but aren’t sure where to begin.  Janice Harper’s book “How to Get Into Grad School ( Even if You’re Broke, Dimwitted or Spent Your Undergrad Years so Smashed You Can’t Even Spell GPA)” provides a road map on how to get into the graduate program of your choice and how to make the graduate school application process manageable.  Her humorous and informative book provides just the nudge–and game plan–that you need.

How to Get Into Grad School (Even if You’re Broke, Dimwitted or Spent Your Undergrad Years so Smashed You Can’t Even Spell GPA),
Revised Edition.  Backdoor Press, 2012, Revised 2016.

What began as a long article in 2012 has now grown to be a hundred page book (revised 2016) on how anyone can get into graduate school with enough understanding of the process and how to best address or get around any shortcomings. With sections on choosing the best degree for your needs, finding and applying to universities, establishing relationships with faculty before applying, writing the personal statement, and taking the entrance exams, How to Get Into Grad School is an enjoyable but practical guide that even the best students can find invaluable.
