dr. Justin Grimes

My name is Dr. Justin Grimes, and I was born and raised in Little Rock, AR.  I worked in Graduate Education for several years. As the owner of Apply to Graduate School, I’m familiar with the growing changes in graduate education. As a coach, speaker, and consultant, I aim to make graduate education more accessible and equitable for everyone.


In my academic journey, I went from a low ACT, GPA, and GRE score to completing three degrees, including a doctorate. Now, I am privileged to address the critical needs of graduate recruitment, admissions, and retention. Many talented individuals aim to get a graduate degree to address career entry, pivot, change, or promotion, and I desire to help them.

I bring to my work the perspective of an educator, degree holder in an online and in-person graduate program, graduate student recruiter, admissions coordinator, academic coach, and author of a book that explains applying to graduate school.

Outside of the business, I am a huge fan and mini collector of sneakers.  My favorite things are bowling, watching movies, spending time with my family, cooking, and traveling.
