The Grad School application and selection process is daunting for . . . well, pretty much everyone. That’s why Dr. TJ Murphy and Brian Clark founded gradschoolmatch.com, a website brings together prospective students and the faculty looking for them.
The two founders come from opposite sides of the same problem. Murphy is a professor of Pharmacology at Emory University, and needed a better way to find potential student for his program. Clark wanted to give students a way to find (and be found by) the programs they were most interested in. Together, these two are creating new avenues for everyone involved in the Grad School process to find the very best people and programs.
The Product’s Value Proposition: inexpensive solution for all programs big and small, no advertisements or spam, simple & easy to use interface, one-click actions across the website, bi-directional – while students find schools, schools can search for them, sourced from groups of high achieving students.
