Graduate & Professional School Day

Our next GPSD will take place on October 22, 2018

GPSD provides an opportunity for schools to recruit our excellent students and recent graduates, and gives current undergraduates a chance to talk informally with admissions folks about the benefits of graduate and/or professional study and about their specific institutions and programs of study.

We are please to have assembled a strong and diverse group of representatives of a host of fine public and private universities to participate in GPSD 2018. Please explore this website for detailed information about the Fair, and be sure to mark the evening of October 22 on your calendar!

Information for Students and Alumni

Graduate and Professional School Day (GPSD) comes only every other year. So, juniors and seniors, this is your last chance to attend, and freshmen and sophomores, GPSD 2018 will be your only other chance to participate. When you come to GPSD 2018 on the 22nd of October, bear in mind that the event begins at 5 p.m. and is always highly popular and well attended. Plan to come early and consider the following suggestions:

  • Dress nicely.
  • This fall the academic deans of Trinity College are pleased to sponsor Graduate and Professional School Day 2018, a one-day fair for Duke Undergraduates and area alumni. The event brings to the Duke campus representatives from about 80 schools with graduate, business, law, and health professions programs of study.
  • Come prepared, if you can. You'll get much more out of your conversations with school representatives if you've taken the time beforehand to inform yourself a bit about the schools that most interest you.
  • Shake hands confidently with the representative, and introduce yourself as the friendly and engaging person that, we're sure, you are.
  • Ask lots of questions. Remember, the representatives are at GPSD to answer your questions, both general questions about graduate or professional school study and specific questions about their school, its strengths, and your options.
  • Be sure to thank the representatives. Remember that while they're representing their schools, you're representing Duke University, and your good impression will encourage their participation in future GPSD Fairs.
