Of the survey respondents from LiNK 2015, 99% of candidates received offers and agreed to further their education in over 20 different programs across the nation. The offers ranged from $15,000 Graduate Assistantships to Full Tuition Waivers plus Assistantships. Here's what candidates have to say about LiNK:
"I never would have had the time or money to meet with all these schools on my own. In person interviews always leave a better impression than online submissions."
"It was a smaller run program that gave me more individual time with each school."
"The schools were far friendlier at this venue than other larger 'cattle call' type auditions. The space was comfortable & I had a BLAST talking to all the schools that called me back!"
Of the institutional survey respondents from 2015, 20% of all offers made were accepted by LiNK participants. Past institutional participants commented about LiNK:
"LiNK is the most efficient and best place for us to find graduate students for our program. The quality of students who attend is exceptional, and the ease of recruiting in such a concentrated environment is fantastic."
"It put us in front of candidates that would otherwise not have considered us."
"LiNK provides a lower stress atmosphere and more one-on-one time where both recruiters and candidates find the right match."
