Hello friends from the internet, I just recently discover this gradcafe forum and I think it's AMAZING. I just wanted to know how some of you are coping with rejections from some schools. I applied for Fall 2017 to about 8-9 schools and so far I've heard back from about 4 schools regarding not getting accepted into the program. Should I have applied for more school? I applied last year to about 3 and learned my lesson because I should've applied for more. I saw a post somewhere that said he/she applied to about 20 schools. I didn't graduate with Communication Science Disorder or Speech Path as my major for my undergrad. I feel like that makes it harder to get into the program. How are some of you coping with the rejection, if you've received decision letters already. To be honest, I'm a little sad because this is my second time trying. I keep thinking to myself that I'm not working hard enough or not doing enough and that's why I am not getting into the program. I tried to pull myself together and applied to a leveling program at University of Montana, which I'm happy to say I got into that way in case I don't get into any school, I can prepare myself for then next cycle. Anyways, if you all could share some of your stories. I hope to recover from this soon and get back on my feet!
