Will W&L help me find a job once I graduate?
We won't just help you find a job -- we'll help you find anything you're looking for. Our Career & Professional Development Center helps all W&L students find post-grad jobs, fellowship opportunities, summer internships, and more. They will help you craft a resume (even if it's your first time doing it), write a personal statement and cover letter, and even host you for a mock interview to practice your skills. When you're looking for an opportunity, you're in good hands with the Career Development office.
Where do W&L students go to work?
Our graduates go into a wide range of fields and work at companies such as Wells Fargo, Venture for America, NASA, the National Institute of Health, Twitter, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, the Peace Corps, Ernst & Young, Space X, Deutsche Bank, the Japan Exchange Teaching Program, and more.
I'm interested in graduate school - where do W&L grads end up?
Our graduates continue their education in a variety of well-known public and private graduate schools, from divinity school to law school, business to dentistry, and points in between. Acceptance rates into graduate schools are very high from W&L -- typically over 90% of applicants to medical schools and law schools are admitted.
