  1. Its hard to say how much you can visit. I just got engaged a few months ago and me and my SO are close to 1100 miles apart. Hes finishing his undergrad and will be with me but not until fall. I am lonely a lot because we see each other about every two months and because I am Canadian, I can't work there in the summer and yeah.... Anyways, I have a classmate who is two hours away from her bf and sees him every weekend. It works because her bf is a grad student too, so they study a lot when they are together. For us, that is essential, as our graduate program is demanding. In the times
  2. wow thanks! I will look into that. Its hard being a grad student right now to imagine taking pre-req's prior to applying. I have no issue at all with graduation taking a asemester longer or more than that, compared with out of program students. However, I really don't want to (unless need be) delay applying any longer. So I will take a look at some of those schools, Thanks for the reply!
  3. Sorry I posted this twice, I am not really sure what happened
  4. In the fall of 2014 I will apply to SLP ma/ms programs. I have an undergraduate background in linguistics/french and education, and I will have a masters in linguistics from syracuse University. While I am at Syracuse I will be taking 24 SLP graduate credts and have completed observation hours. However, I will be missing a handful of courses (slp courses) that I think are required pre req's in most places like neuro, speech science and anatomy. I am also Canadian, and unless the sky starts falling (or some school gives me an amaizng scholarship) i will need loans. It is easier to get loa

  6. I am only an MA student but the main points still apply.... 1. I agree with all the people who have said things about having a life outside of grad school. I am still struggleing with that, I feel like it consums my life most of the time. 2. Also agree with the comments about a list! I LOVE crossing stuff off of mine. 3. Make sure you make time to not loose touch with old friends. This may seem like a silly comment, but as many of us do, I left everything I knew to go grad school across the country from where I did my undergrad, and also far away from family. Anyways my fin
  7. is nervous about an exam today!! Running on not a lot of sleep, and caffine just praying for an A

  8. I am getting really mixed messages between other international students, the Univeristy I am at. Right now, I am an RA and an American school, but I am Canadian. I went to continue the RA in the summer, (even though I am not taking classes). It just makes sense given that I can do dissetation reasearch, and also I am in my first year, and my parents live in teh small town in the middle of no where there isn't a lot of likelyhood I could get a job at home. Anyways, I want to make as much money as I can, but I wanna make sure of a few things.... * Its illegal to work off campus right? (e
  9. Thanks so much I would have never ever thought of that!
  10. Well they are saying i'd be like a number but I agree with you 100% and thanks I more just wanted confirmation that it was a good idea.....I think I am applying to 12 (including where I am now) and will visit 5, 6 if you include where I am now
  11. I will bea a 2014 applicant, I am currently a linguistics masters student at an other school. I have SOME background, I'll graduate with 18 ish graudate credits SLP (maybe more depending on where I go). The 18 is based on the schools program I am currently at. Anyways I have done my observing and am hoping I will be able to take clinical methodology in the fall (which would I am sure be an asset). My question is....what do you think of me, visiting schools next fall? Do peoeple do that?? I have gotten mixed opinions so far so I thought I would ask here. By that point I would have
  12. Wow! Impressive reply, I just wanted to say thanks I 100% agree with your whole post! I too have a learning disability, and when it comes to school I think I have finally figured it out. As an undergraudate though I faced one hell of an ordeal (long story but treated extremly questionably because of my disability to the point that something happened, where I could have very easily been rejected across the board in my apps this year) and I thank god every day for the chance that my graduate institution looked beyond what happend and admitted me. I have, what I strongly believe is the best a
  13. I wouldn't worry about it.... in my case, he came to me three times last semester and once over winter break and I went to him thanksgiving, (unfortunatly due to his program requirments and job situation we had to spend most of winter break apart). This semester it will be split, two and two ...anyways he met all of my professors at a socail thing we could bring guests too, and many of them ask me about him once and a while. When we got engaged (as a classmate informed all of them) I got several congradulations. I think what helps is I always work when are togehter, hes really understanding
  14. Wow thanks!! I really appreciate all the advice
