Applications to U.S. Graduate Schools Increase, but New Enrollments Drop

Applications to graduate-school programs in the United States increased by 4 percent from the fall of 2010 to the fall of 2011, but first-time enrollments fell by almost 2 percent during that time, according to a report being released on Friday by the Council of Graduate Schools.

The report, which is based on an annual survey in which 655 institutions responded, shows that total graduate-school enrollments remained ahead of where they were a decade ago, increasing by 3 percent from 2001 to 2011, the latest year available. However, from 2010 to 2011 there was a 2-percent drop in first-time enrollments in master's and certificate-level programs, while Ph.D. programs enrolled 0.5 percent more new students.
Fewer enroll because of growing student debt, declining state support, and downsizing departments, says the Council of Graduate Schools.

We connect students and graduate programs
Introduction
Gradschoolmatch was founded by a grad school professor who had become frustrated by the application process.  Rather than wait for the random great application to fly in over the transom, he wanted a simple and inexpensive way to use the internet to identify prospective students who had the right interests and credentials for his program.

After filling out a simple profile, students using the website are matched to several of over 38,000 masters, PhD and other advanced degree programs in virtually every academic field that are listed. 

A growing number of these graduate program profiles are being "adopted" by program directors and recruiters to search for and connect with students with the right backgrounds and interests for their program.

In the end, all graduate school application and admission decisions are made on the basis of personal relationships between programs and students.  Gradschoolmatch changes how those connections are made.
