Leading Graduate School Resources GradSchools.com Launches New Personalization Features to Ease the Graduate School Search Process

May 31, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
GradSchools.com, the premier online graduate school search tool designed to help students find and gain acceptance into graduate programs, has launched new personalization features to help prospective students customize information about their preferred graduate programs and schools.

A service of EducationDynamics, the newly redesigned GradSchools.com allows students to create a profile specific to their interests, desired field of study, GPA test scores and more. Users also have the ability to:
• Track their contact history with schools
• Maintain a calendar of upcoming events and deadlines
• Save school searches and helpful articles and share them with others;
• Conduct side by side program comparisons.

“This level of functionality has previously never existed in the graduate school realm,” says Doug Seymour, a GradSchools.com student advisor. “Students now truly have the capability to make their graduate school search their own, to fit their needs and find the exact graduate programs that work best for them. Beyond increased ease of use, the new GradSchools.com also allows prospective graduate students to make meaningful connections with advisors and other graduate students, offering support and other helpful resources in the school search process.”

GradSchools.com has been the leading online destination for graduate school searches for the past 12 years. A redesigned version of the site launched in May, and has already received rave reviews from users.

“I think these new features are great” says Alison Finberg, current elementary education master’s student at Holy Family University. “The graduate school decision process is getting harder and harder, with more and more choices and considerations. I always thought GradSchools.com did an excellent job of collecting all the information students needed, and now it will help students like me keep track of everything too.”
More than 60,000 graduate school programs are listed on GradSchools.com, searchable by field of study, subject, location, institution and even keyword. To learn more or to search for a graduate program, visit http://www.GradSchools.com.
