  1. I served and still do full-time all throughout college - I have always taken 18-20 credit hours and right now I have a research assistantship too! I work at a sushi restaurant so the hours are great - it's only open until 9 on weekdays, 8 on Sundays, and 10 on weekends. I never make under 20.00 an hour and usually about 30.00 an hour (after tips) on weekends so the money is great. However when I start Graduate school I'm going to wait to see if I can still handle serving on the weekends still but I will say as long as you do everything in advance as far as school - it's doable and great money. I also will say - I'm not sure what you do right now but Serving can be really stressful at time and definitely requires a unique skill set - it's tough on your body and you'll need high patience, multitasking skills, and ability to always smile Also if you don't have any experience you will probably have to start out hosting or bussing tables. Good luck!
  2. Thank you guys all so much!! I truly believe this is the best program for me. I also wish luck to all of you still waiting on the Waitlist, don't give up hope!
  3. SO happy! Thank you! I know!! I was about to put my deposit down at another school on April 14th too
  4. I was accepted off the waitlist today at Pacific. I am so happy I don't think there are even words to describe!!!
  5. Hmmm I didn't see that! I was told I was Tier One and I saw two other people said their email said the same but no actual information :/
  6. I have not committed yet but it is very likely I will be going here. Moving from Illinois If you want to make a page I will join once I commit! No one has made a page yet
  7. Do you realize you're posting in the Speech Language Pathology forum? Good luck with ur endeavor.
  8. I'm on the Tier One waitlist at Pacific. It's my top choice but I have no idea how many people are on the Tier One with me but I just saw last night on the Results page that someone is not taking their spot at Pacific because they got in somewhere they like better. I can't even explain the feelings I'm going through right now!
  9. I see some people are getting responses from U of Montana. Still nothing for me
  10. Hi! I came from a Pre Med major before (stats in signature) and both of my parents are doctors. When I decided I want to pursue SLP my mom didn't talk to me for months. (Ah the joys of being Asian!) However I worked really hard to bring up my GPA as much as I could since I was on academic probation by the time I left my first school to transfer to the one I'm in now. I did my best to form bonds with my professors and got a research assistantship in Linguistics (my minor). I did a ton of research and saved up a bunch of money to apply to schools I thought were a good fit! I got a ton of rejections, and one was from my undergraduate university I'm at now. That hurt. I kept my hopes low during the whole process so I would be pleasantly surprised. I have gotten one acceptance and two waitlists and I'm supposed to hear back from 2 more schools I applied to by tonight! I am so happy to be accepted anywhere as I truly was prepared for all rejections and I'm on the top tier waitlist at my top choice university so I'm over the moon. My advice is to just stay strong and realistic. I know it's hard but stressing and worrying after you've already put your apps in does nothing. Whatever happens will happen and with the right amount of work you can achieve whatever - yes it may take longer than your original plan but don't worry as life is long Cheers and good luck to all!
  11. I'm sorry to hear you got a rejection but I bet you're happy to have some closure as hanging in limbo is the worst! Good luck with the rest of the schools you're waiting on!
  12. I know two people got accepted off the tier one waitlist last year but I have no idea if that waitlist is ranked or random! I'm not too hopeful
  13. Hi I was just wondering if anyone else was waiting on University of Montana? I haven't heard a peep
  14. I received an email from TWU notifying me I was waitlisted yesterday!
