    ENMU 2nd Bachelor's

    If you read her siggy it looks like they've already graduated from ENMU. I'm currently enrolled in their 2ND BA program. PM if you have any questions.

    Are CA residents allowed to apply to the distance program?
  5. I've taken a few courses at ENMU and I've enjoyed them. I'm currently taking Language Science w/Adele Raade and I think it's going to be an easy A. She's a helpful instructor who holds weekly chats. You can ask her questions about any material you are confused about. She also goes over the new material you will be learning that week. I've heard good things about Audiology w/Sheree Hall Is there any way you can work as an SLPA? Maybe some experience in the field would be attractive to grad schools. I have a horrible undergrad GPA w/my first BA. I'm completing an entire 2ND BA in COMD to increase my chances of getting into grad school. I'm hoping it wont be a waste of $$$$

    Sorry, I saw the word "stay" and made that assumption. Anyways, with the school that you actually go to, the same applies. You have as good of a shot as pretty much anyone to get into these programs.

    Yes that’s my major concern about Athabasca as well. I actually live in Alberta (Grande Prairie) so the summer institute in Calgary wouldn’t be too far out of reach for me. But I have a job and kids and it would still be hard for me to just take off. Ideally I’d like to do something fully online. How did your friend like the Yorkville program? Glad to hear it’s not too hard to get employment afterwards. I always worry about online programs and employability afterwards.

    Canada MSW 2019

    Hello from another Anthropology major! Lol! I graduated from Memorial University of NL back in 2003. I specialized in archaeology and I did not fare well in regards to employment. Went back to school and did the LPN program because it was quick with high employment rate, and have been working in that field for 11 years. Time for a change though! I wouldn’t worry about everyone else’s GPA and experience hours. They look at your personal statement and references too. Everything is not about grades. My GPA isn’t spectacular either...I started out as a computer science major which really ruined my overall GPA. My last couple years were decent though so I’m hoping that helps. Good luck!
  9. The university of north Texas currently offers speech sound disorders and basic rehabilitative audiology online. There might be one more but I cannot remember. Best of luck!
  10. Faculty here. Having had many undergraduate come through with great ideas, interests, and ambitions, the one thing that holds many back is motivation. I can't count on the number of times someone comes in, telling me all the research he/she wants to do, but when it comes times to do the work, nothing is done. As a result, I have learned to be encouraging but also set my expectations low. I will not commit resources or energy unless they (undergrad) have proven him/herself to be reliable and accountable.

    Help narrowing down programs

    Awesome! Thank you for those links ^_^ The general consensus of my mentors is that my application wasn’t up to snuff in regards to my math GRE scores. But I recently started working with a tutor to bump those up so hopefully that wont be an issue this time around.
  12. Hi Everyone, My name is Michael. I am a student at Vanderbilt University. I am a second-year MTS "Master of Theological Studies". I gonna graduate in May 2019, and I am going to apply for a PhD in Theology. I have actually a list of different school; Princeton, Chicago, Union in NY, Emory, Fuller. I am also going to take the GRE Test in the first week of Oct. So, what are some tips for the application, the GRE test, the GPA, etc you high light to me? Thanks in advance!!
  13. To add to the support I completely agree with everyone! So much about grad school is not about the letter grades you received. For my field they really are looking for passionate, creative students. Many PIs have told me that it's easy to teach students any type of research methods, what's not as easy is to teach them to be curious~ I think you will do great!

    Starting your own Project

    Yeah my PI is funding me, I don't know if it's from the grant money for this specific project I'm working on. My plan was to do this for the first year, maybe see how much I can really get out of my first year. I was just curious if it was even possible,.

    Your interests don't overlap much with my field of study, but I would say apply at the universities where you find at least a small concentration of faculty working on the broader issues that you are interested in and some of them publishing on topics that fit well with what you're aiming to do. What do you think went wrong the first time around? Also, here are two interesting blog posts on how to assess whether a program is worth applying to: https://orgtheory.wordpress.com/2007/01/30/grad-skool-rulz-3-choosing-the-grad-skool/ https://orgtheory.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/how-to-choose-a-graduate-program/

    I finally have three professors willing to write recs for me.

    Research Intern vs Research Assistant

    Sounds like two valuable experiences as a research assistant to me. The first job could even be called communications assistant or knowledge mobilization officer or something if you want. But perhaps research assistant is best particularly if the profs you worked with will be writing your reference letters as you'll want the title you use to be similar to what they are using.
  18. Yes! People lie on the internet! Don't forget that.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Whenever I read this thread I feel like I'm so behind. I finally have three recommenders who have agreed to write letters for me. I think that's pretty good lol.

    I remembered that Hamilton exists. This was my writing music back for my capstone in undergrad and also seems like perfect "angry about relationships" music. Thank you, Lin Manuel Miranda. You've made and PhD student sing while writing in lab.

    Research Intern vs Research Assistant

    Sure thing, thanks for the response. One was for the research center at my university. So I was working with Profs at my university, but their work was concerned with outreach to local government and occasional news articles moreso than work for academic journals. I had another one that was within the research department of a policy think tank. My tasks included lit reviews, data collection, making graphs/tables, and summarizing long reports my boss didnt feel like reading

    I am getting ready to apply for the second time, but this time I really want to make sure I apply to the right programs and that they'll compliment my existing research interests. I'd broadly define my research interests as how the state responds to maintain its hegemonic interests, both in maintaining white supremacy and in the coming climate crisis. My interests also include policing and the criminal justice system as a system of white supremacy and the role the media plays in these systems. Any advice y'all can give in this process would be wonderful!

    Thank you all so so much! I really appreciate it - this really helps Im going to think about this the next few days and let you know what happens.
  24. Does anyone know where I can take neuroanatomy online during the spring semester?
  25. I have, but I you have to remember that for a lot of people graduate school is likely the most stressful time of their life up to this point. Understandably, some people have probably put social graces aside and have entirely focused on surviving. It's possible that your peers are indeed simply catty and unfriendly, but try to contextualize their behavior against the extremity of the experience of graduate school. Admittedly, such thinking might not help a lot, but it might help you sympathize with others or perhaps build bridges with them. Suffering sort of loves company.

    Canada MSW 2019

    Hi everyone, I followed the 2018 forum for a while and I am super anxious to start applying this year! I am currently in my fourth year at Western doing an Honours Specialization in Anthropology with a minor in Thanatology (the study of grief and bereavement). I'm applying to Lakehead's HBSW (both campuses), Western/King's 2 year MSW, and Laurier's 2 year MSW. My marks aren't anything spectacular, and I only decided in my third year that this was the path for me so I have been trying to build up relevant experience in a short period of time. I have been working in residence life for three years so I have a lot of experience with students with thoughts of suicide, sexual assault survivors, and a variety of mental illnesses. This year I am staring a new volunteer position at a sexual assault centre as a crisis line responder. I feel like I am not doing enough, so if I am able to balance my job, volunteer position, and course load, I may also volunteer at Kids Help Phone! I am really learning towards Lakehead Thunder Bay campus, because I feel like I can really bring myself up with the personal statement exam. Does anyone know anyone who was accepted into this program? I'm just really scared because I see that some of you have a really high gpa with 6000 hours of experience!
