Win Expert Admission Coaching With Our Grad School Giveaway


Attention future graduate students: we’re giving away some expert one-on-one grad school coaching!

Get the advice you need to have an edge in the competitive world of grad school admission with our Grad School Giveaway. 

Dr. Don Martin has served as the Dean of Admission at Columbia, Northwestern, and University of Chicago, among others. He’s coached more than 300 grad students—with a 97% admission rate—to schools like Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, and Emory. His advice is just what you need in today’s competitive grad school environment!

Kevin Kiley has been coaching for more than 10 years and has over 12 years of experience working in higher education. He is a certified coach who has worked with a range of students, from undergraduate to graduate and beyond. His advice could give you the competitive edge you need in your grad school search!

Dr. Martin and Mr. Kiley have generously volunteered their time to offer our giveaway winners some expert grad school input, regardless of where they are in the search and application process. The first 50 entrants will also receive a signed copy of Dr. Martin’s book, Road Map for Graduate Study: A Guide for Prospective Graduate Students, for free! (You can learn more about Dr. Martin and Mr. Kiley here.)

The prize

One 30-minute consultation call with either Don or Kevin, where you can talk about virtually anything related to your grad school search, such as:

  • Refining your grad school goals
  • Reviewing your application essays
  • Discussing programs you’re considering

Additionally, if you sign up for coaching with Grad School Road Map (Dr. Martin’s company), your first hour of coaching will be free.
