This is a great achievement for this year's class of Harvard graduates, but they still have so many more classes ahead of them. In order to be considered for admission to one of the many Harvard Graduate Programs, you need to complete a complete application.
The application process at Harvard is very simple. If you've had a good grade point average for four years straight and you've taken one or two AP courses (or other standardized test), then you are ready to apply. Many of the graduate schools will also require you to write an essay. It's important that you take a look at your personal academic goals and decide what direction you want to go in your career.
The admission process at Harvard isn't quite as easy as it sounds. You may need to fill out multiple application forms. The first thing that you need to do, when looking into any Harvard graduate program, is to figure out if there are any special admissions requirements. Some schools like to require an SAT or ACT score, while others may have other requirements. The next step is to contact each school you are interested in and speak with representatives. You can also search online for information about each school's admissions process.
When you're looking into a graduate program, you will also need to consider the costs. Some schools have tuition fees and/or room and board costs, and others may offer financial aid. If you don't need any financial assistance, you may be able to take care of these costs on your own. The majority of Harvard Graduate Schools require you to maintain a certain grade point average throughout your coursework. This means that you will need to make sure that you are taking the necessary coursework for every semester and taking care of . . . . . . any work that is left out.
Harvard is a very competitive school and there are some very good graduate schools, especially among recent Harvard grads. It's important to find the right school for you and your academic goals.
