NYU dean offers
grad school insight
By Brian Campbell

Getting into graduate school to study
biomedical and health sciences is no
But Dr. Joel Oppenheim, associate
dean for graduate studies at New York
University, gave University undergrad-
uate students tips on how to make the
arduous process a little easier.
Oppenheim addressed students yes-
terday at the University Medical
Center's Towsley Center, in a lecture
titled "How to Apply to Graduate
School" as several graduate schools
from across the nation advertised their
programs for browsing students.
While most students applying to grad-
uate school to pursue biomedical and
health research have acquired the neces-
sary scientific background, Oppenheim
said he looks to admit mature students
with a range of interests.
"I'm looking for well-rounded stu-
dents, for students who read the news-
paper and can talk to me in an intelli-
gent fashion," Oppenheim said. "You
have to be able to understand the soci-
ety around you."
Oppenheim said students should take
many factors into consideration when
applying to graduate schools, including
the quality and flexibility of their pro-
grams, finances, geographical location,
library and computer resources, minor-
ity offices and child-care services.
To find information about potential
schools, Oppenheim advised speaking
with professors, using career service
programs and looking up schools in
periodicals such as Peterson's Guide.
Oppenheim said oral and written
communication skills are essential for
scientific researchers, and advised stu-
dents to hone their reading and writing
abilities as undergraduates.
"You can do great science, but if you
cannot communicate this research to
the community and your peers, your
work will never be recognized,"he said.
LSA junior Nora Kuriel said the lec-
ture was helpful because it was less for-
mal than most applications seminars.
"I've been to other graduate pro-
grams before, but I think this is the
best?' Kuriel said. "He gave a lot of
details that other schools don't give and
didn't try to be intimidating"
Oppenheim advised casual dress and
spontaneity for interviews and honesty
on applications, which he said some
students fill with exaggerations, only to
contradict themselves during the inter-
