  1. Low undergrad GPA and SOP

    I didn't have a super low GPA to explain but it was very subpar when compared to my postbacc GPA. I didn't address that issue directly but I did draw on how my undergrad major in which I obtained a low GPA (linguistics) helped strengthen me as an applicant and as a future SLP. Just try to turn your negative into a positive. Talk about how you rose from the ashes and used that to make you a more prepared clinician because you're able to overcome adversity.
  2. Number of school's you're apply to?

    I applied to 8 schools last cycle.
  3. Personally, I feel that volunteering is more about what you take from it rather than how many hours you get. Sure its nice to have it down on paper saying you've done x hours but what really hits it home for the admission committee is what you took out from the opportunity. Maybe you found that you loved working with the geriatric population. Maybe it's finding that your calling is in medical speech pathology because you're enamored with your experience volunteering in the hospital. What did you take out of your volunteering experience that you didn't have before? Translate all of this into your personal statement and how it helped you to discover what kind of path you want to follow. That's whats important.
  4. Graduate Housing

    Find a housing group for your campus in Facebook. I joined one and there are tons of people looking for new housemates for the oncoming year!
  5. BGSU vs. Rush University

    Accepted on March 8th.
  6. BGSU vs. Rush University

    I'm pretty certain I will be going to U Washington but I sent in some supplemental stuff to the financial aid department today so I'm waiting to see what they prep for me for my financial aid package before deciding. Rush is EXPENSIVE.
  7. BGSU vs. Rush University

    Following to get more information on Rush!
  8. Interview CSUEB

    Seeing as the email states its only a 10-15 min interview.. I highly doubt they will ask clinical questions. Probably basic things like why SLP and why CSUEB. Just a thought! Good luck! I decided to withdraw my app after getting the invitation as I think I've decided where I will attend grad school in the fall!
  9. What Schools Are You Waiting On!?

    Yeah I received the email yesterday 3/29 saying I had to respond by 2pm same day for interviews today 3/30. If I respond by 4/1 noon then interviews will be the week after that. These were all Skype interviews!
  10. What Schools Are You Waiting On!?

    I was offered an interview from CSUEB yesterday but will be declining their invitation as I don't think I will be attending the school regardless. Best of luck if you're still waiting!
  11. Volunteering!

    Look into Casa Colina in Pomona and Rancho Los Amigos in Downey.
  12. What Schools Are You Waiting On!?

    I received an acceptance from SJSU sometime last week but have declined the offer yesterday. Nothing from CSUEB still.
  13. 2017 Applicants Here!

    Actual tuition itself is said to be 21k and another 20k for living expenses are factored into. I looked on Craigslist just as I was curious about rent and it was scary 😩.
  14. 2017 Applicants Here!

    Were you offered work study? And yes! I think it's very likely I will go!
  15. 2017 Applicants Here!

    They were all loans. Nothing on work study.
