Is getting a grad school interview a good sign?

It’s the beginning of the new year, and with it comes graduate admissions time. You are well on your way to graduate school. For most programs, if you get invited to an interview, you have at least a 50% chance of getting admitted.

When should I start applying for grad school?

Target: 1 year before applying to grad school. To give yourself the most breathing room, get the ball rolling about a year before your applications will be due. In this scenario, that’s late October/early November. Another good rule of thumb: Start about 18 months before your first day of class.
