  1. I have recently applied to graduate school for speech language pathology. I am currently wait-listed at two schools. I am wondering what you recommend pursuing during your gap year to increase your application and chances for grad school when I reapply next year. My GPA (3.3) and GRE scores are very low. I am already planning on retaking the GRE this summer and I am considering retaking classes to increase my GPA. I am wondering what you've done as far as employment goes for gain experiences in related professions. For example, have you become an SLPA, paraprofessional, PCA, etc... Honestly, I'm just looking for various ideas to gain more experience since I am very passionate about the field of speech language pathology and I am hoping to get accepted next year. Thanks for any ideas or recommendation.
