    Clinical Practicum Hours

    Seems normal. My placements were all 4 days a week for however long my supervisor worked. So there were times when I worked four 9 or 10 hours days at a nursing home.

    Gift for internship supervisors

    We were not allowed to give ours any gifts, except a card. The program itself had a small gift for each of our supervisors that we could give them.
  3. Most programs that are online also have a physical program. So they wouldn't really know. In the interviews I've gone on in the last few months, I've related things to my practicums but I wouldn't say any questions were specific to my school. To OP, all I'm saying is that I wouldn't worry about going to an online program.
  4. In no way (I believe) will your transcripts or diploma mention that you completed an online program. It would be up to you to disclose that.

    What email should I use?

    I used my school email but have since lost access to it. I would suggest a personal email, but maybe make a new one that sounds professional if it isn't already.

    Do SLP professors grade on a curve?

    We got curved in grad school on occasion.

    Is declining my only option crazy?

    Why did you apply if you had no intention of going? I would take the offer.

    Do people actually get off waitlists?

    I don't have the exact emails anymore because my undergrad account is gone now, but from Facebook it looks like June 1st for the one school. Not sure about the other one, sorry!

    PA schools

    I was in the same boat as you 2 years ago. I went to West Chester and always thought I would go there. I got accepted off the waitlist but had already committed to Delaware. I am glad that I chose Delaware over WCU because of the professors at I knew how some of the professors at West Chester were.

    Do people actually get off waitlists?

    Yes, I got off two waitlists. And my friend got accepted somewhere after first being rejected!

    Commuting throughout graduate studies

    I've commuted about 40 min-1 hour for my whole graduate program so far. It hasn't seemed to affect my academics nor my social life negatively in any way.
  12. I was told to fill out the graduate school application only when I got my acceptance email, not after I submitted my CSDCAS application. So my assumption is that that is still the case. Hope that helps.
  13. Are you talking about the application to the UD graduate school in general? What is the supplemental application? I go there now.

    How did you find TheGradCafe?

    Honestly don't remember but I've been in grad school for almost 2 years now and I haven't left.

    Financial Aid email before official acceptance?

    I got this from Temple 2 years ago but I was not accepted.

    How to dress for interviews?

    Skirt suit seems way too professional. I would probably go for slacks and a cute tope and a cardigan with flats. Or a cute dress.
  17. I didn't. I got into a less expensive school off the waitlist, and decided not to go there even though it was waaaaaaaaaay cheaper (and I went there for undergrad). I weighed all the pros and cons and in the end I chose the more expensive school because of its reputation for its physical therapy program (#1 in US) and brand new clinic.

    Developing programs-worth applying to?

    There is no penalty for going to a Candidacy school. I believe there is just some extra paperwork required by ASHA when applying for your license to prove that you took all of the necessary classes and whatnot. "In 1991, the Council on Professional Standards in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology established the status of Candidate for Accreditation for emerging education programs in audiology and in speech-language pathology through the former Educational Standards Board (ESB). This status became necessary because, effective January 1, 1994, an individual’s eligibility for ASHA’s Certificates of Clinical Competence (CCC) was linked to graduation from an accredited program. The status of Candidacy for Accreditation allowed students enrolled in newly established education programs to be eligible to apply for the CCC upon graduation without penalizing the first class of students graduating from those programs.

  19. You can still get your CCCs if you graduate before a program fails to earn accreditation. There is no penalty for going to a Candidacy school.

    How much is this "deposit"?

    Depends on the school. The school I'm at had a $500 deposit, but another one I got accepted to was only $100. The good news is that it ends up going towards your tuition, assuming you don't withdraw your acceptance.
  21. Just a basic understanding is okay (standard deviation, mean, etc) unless you're planning to do or required to do some hardcore research.

    Commuting Throughout Grad School

    I commute 40 min-1 hour 15 every day each way. It depends on what time I have to be there or at my practicum. But honestly, it isn't that bad and I got used to it. Plus, I commuted about 35-45 min for undergrad as well so it's not that deep.
  23. I'm at a candidate school right now. You will get your license. Do not worry.

    Working in grad school?

    My first year I worked about 32 hours a week with no problem. Since I'm in my second year now and have a practicum Monday through Thursday and class on Friday, I only work about 16 hours on the weekends.
