    Use no preposition at all, as was mentioned in a prior post.
    I am considering applying to grad school.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    My point was that they are not sentences. I'm sorry if my comment was too subtle.
