  1. This question may be kind of strange, but what was the dress code at your grad schools? I'm nervous I'm not gonna have enough "clinic" clothes but I also don't want to break the bank. Good quality professional clothes is so expensive. I bought a couple of tops and slacks but I don't know if it's enough. Thank you!
  2. Help a girl out here, y'all. I've been set on taking a gap year before applying for grad school. Most of my classmates are applying this Fall and during this whole summer I've been watching them freak out over their apps, GREs, etc. and I'm just here not worrying about it since I'm planning to apply next Fall. I just feel like I am not ready for grad school yet, feel like I haven't done enough to boost my apps or get to know my professors enough, you know? But now, I'm really having second thoughts. I'm super conflicted. I feel like I might miss my chance if I don't apply now. Plus all the other issues like, who am I gonna ask for my letter of recs in a year when I'm not attending school anymore and all that stuff. I freaking doubt you can recycle LoRs (or can you? ) If anyone here is on the same boat, feel free to reply and freak out with me. If anyone here has taken a gap year and got into grad school anyway, please take me as your young Padawan and school me of your ways. If anyone here is totally against a gap year, please enlighten me as to why.
  3. Hello. I will be starting grad school in august and I don't really know what to expect. Everyone is always talking about how stressful and hard it is, but never explain how and why. Is it that much different than undergrad? Are the classes harder than they were in undergrad or is it just time constraints with clinic? Thank you!
  4. What are your responsibilities as a graduate teaching assistant?
  5. I recently accepted my seat into Syracuse university and was wondering if anyone here went there and could give me more info? Also, I was offered a graduate teaching assistantship. Is this just holding office hours and grading or is it legit teaching a class (like on Jane the virgin) thank you!
  6. Hey all! I am a junior at CSU Fullerton and I'm just wondering when is the perfect time to ask for Letters of Rec? I am planning to apply for Fall 2018 (my estimated graduation date is Spring '18) and I already have 2 professors in mind to ask but I just don't know when and how to go about it. Do I ask this ongoing Spring semester? Do I ask in the upcoming Fall semester? It seems to be something that no one really talks about or explains clearly, so I'm a bit confused. Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  7. Hi, I am currently a Biochem major, my GPA is below a 3.0 due to a messy third year due to lack of ambition, and terrible study habits I made stupid choices in my third year which I completely regret. I am going to my fifth year now, I have done a lot of research on what I want to do, and have bettered my study habits a lot. I really want to pursue a master's in SLP and its something I gave a lot of thought. I plan on graduating after my fifth year and then coming back and boosting my GPA and then applying. I know that grad schools in Canada are really competitive, but this is something I really want to do Could someone give me some advice, or did anyone have a similar experience? I want to hopefully boost my GPA and then apply but I feel a little uncertain, are my chances of getting in really slim? I know I said Canada in the title but information about SLP in America is also appreciated! (I'm doing my own research but still would like to hear from everyone) I am doing my thesis soon and continue volunteering at my local hospital. For speech pathologist (or even audiology, since I'm interested in finding out) what kind of letter of recommendation do you guys get? Would an LOR from a Biochem or bio prof be irrelevant in this field? Any advice is really appreciated, please please help me!!
  8. I'm hoping that someone can either confirm my fears or ease my anxiety. I'm currently a postbac at a top three program with a relatively high GPA (3.89 last 90 credits, 3.92 major). I have a lot of great experience in the field and strong letters of rec. I scored a 162 verbal, 4.5 writing, BUT a whopping 144 for quant. Math is my nemesis. I'm hoping that the programs I applied to will overlook these less than desirable scores because they are over 300? Is this just false hope? Neither of the two schools that I applied to have minimum cut offs, but still. Any feed back would be appreciated! I feel like I don't see many people with such as huge gap in their scores like mine :/
