  1. At some schools you can go online and look at the classes you will be taking and when they will meet! It really just depends on the school you go to.
  2. According to someone on the results page Michigan State is still reviewing applications and will let everyone know next week. Ugh. I don't even want to go there now that I've been accepted to less expensive schools, but I would still like an answer. I'm so tempted to withdraw my application but I don't want to waste the cost of sending my GRE score
  3. SAME. If I could turn back the clock I would have saved my time and money and only applied to four schools, not seven. I'm tempted to email Michigan State and tell them that I was to withdraw my application, but I should be hearing from them any day now so I'm just going to wait it out.
  4. Anything for Missouri State?
  5. Finally heard back from Wichita State a few days ago. It was a rejection I'm a little bummed because it was my top choice, but I'm very thankful to have been accepted to three other schools! I have such a tough choice to make Still nothing from Michigan State even though someone on the results page said that we would be notified this week. Ugh.
  6. University of Central Oklahoma Pros: This is where I'm doing my undergrad so I'm familiar with the staff and the other students On campus clinic Summer start so I won't be taking classes my second year Cons: I've lived in Oklahoma my whole life and I'm ready to experience something new This is where I am doing my undergrad (yes this is a pro and a con) We have a partnership with a local early childhood education program that can be very inconsistent. If you have one of those children as a client (which is very likely) you're at risk for not getting enough hours The clinic is very small Missouri State University Pros: It's a different state and town that is reasonably close to my hometown (4hr drive) The clinic is very large with different rooms to accommodate younger and older clients A scholarship that will cover almost all of my out of state fees Summer start A foreign exchange program that allows students to travel to Central America for a week in the summer to provide services to children and adults Cons: Starting over in a strange place The clinic is a little older and not as high tech as others I'm unfamiliar with the staff and students (I'm going to an open house in a few weeks so that will change) University of Central Oklahoma HSC Im not really familiar with this program, but it is only 20 minutes from my hometown so I would be commuting which is a con because traffic is bad.
  7. I won't be attending regardless of their decision, but I want to know so I can stop checking my email constantly! I'm so ready for this process to be over.
  8. Another day of silence from Wichita State and Michigan State. I just want to know so that I can make a decision
  9. I would go if you were invited! It would be a chance to meet the professors so they can put a face to your name. Will you be hearing from them before the open house?
  10. I feel the same way! I was so sure that I wasn't going to get in because my GPA isn't great so I applied to as many schools as I could. However, If you had told me that I would feel silly about being so stressed 3 months ago I probably would have slapped you lol
  11. I got rejected by Arkansas today. I was totally expecting it and wasn't planning on attending since I've been accepted to more affordable programs, so I'm not bummed. It's just nice to have closure from one more school. In other news, I think someone on the results page applied to almost all of the schools I applied to. I keep seeing their results pop up at the same time as mine. It's weird because I have yet to find someone who applied to some of the programs I did, I feel like most people are applying to West Coast or East Coast schools. If you're lurking here, hi!
  12. I was invited to an Open House at Missouri State University when I was accepted. I have not chosen what school I will be attending yet, but I would like to attend the open house to get a feel for the program and meet the staff. Do you think it is ok to attend the open house before committing to the program, or should I accept the offer of admission first?
  13. Wichita State!
  14. I got an email with the subject "WSU Graduate Application" and I freaked out!!! It was just an email from the financial aid department letting me know that my application was received and that I should be hearing from them in the next two weeks -.- I JUST WANT TO KNOW ALREADY
  15. I got accepted to the University of Oklahoma yesterday! I was so shocked. Now I'm waiting on Michigan State, Arkansas, and Wichita State. I won't be attending Michigan State or Arkansas regardless of their decision because I've been accepted to less expensive schools, but I'd reallyyyy like to go to Wichita. I've been checking my email every 20 minutes like a crazy person!
