  1. Thank you! So for GRE scores, I would definitely send all scores. I did that and I think it helps because admissions can see if you tried again to take it. That probably looks good.
  2. @SpeechLaedy @twinguy7 @AlwaysaFalcon @Louly @panda1991 Thank you everyone for all the wonderful comments! I am so glad I started this thread and was able to read other comments with similar stories. You are all amazing and congratulations on the acceptances! Hard work definitely pays off (:
  3. Thank you!! I did see that on asha edfind about eastern Washington, that's why I thought I wasn't going to get in. But because they had a lower gpa, I figured I would give it a shot. I was waitlisted before I got accepted, but honestly don't believe everything you see on asha edfind. Some schools may look at other things besides the gpa and GRE. That's what I think eastern Washington did with my application. Also, I did really well on my interview. So just prepare for your interviews and focus on your letter on intent! You can do it!
  4. Well, I promised myself if I ever got into grad school I would post on gradcafe to help others out there that are trying to as well. Hopefully this information inspires you to pursue your dream of becoming an SLP. Back story: When I was younger, I was diagnosed with a learning disability (auditory and visual processing). I always had to try harder in school than the average student. I went to community college after high school because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I always had a liking working with kids. In the back of my mind, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I hated s
  5. When I was younger I was diagnosed with a learning disability (auditory and visual processing), so I have always had to work harder than the average student. I usually don't tell my professors that I have learning difficulties, but since I am starting grad school this fall, I will most likely tell my clinical instructors. I am sure they will be understanding about it.
  6. I am in the same boat. I was accepted into an amazing Special education program and I was extremely excited to attend because I FINALLY got into a graduate program. I felt fine about going to grad school for spec ed instead of speech. I have been working as an ABA therapist this past year and I thought that maybe being an ABA therapist led me to pursue a masters in spec ed. I started to envision myself working as a spec ed teacher. I was really excited and I forgot all about even applying to speech and I knew It would BE EASIER than speech. The only doubts I had about Spec ed was burn out and
  7. I am waitlisted at 3 other schools still as well. I accepted yesterday to a school that I love but idk about the cost of money.. so I am still waiting on the other schools.
  8. I agree with you @Speechster ! Thank you for sharing this. I'm so nervous to start grad school but so is everyone else! We are all in this together, we just need to take it one day at a time!
  9. I interviewed with EWU yesterday... so I am assuming they won't let everyone know for a few more weeks
  10. Congratulations! I had an interview this past Saturday and they said they would let us know this Friday... did you have an interview last weekend?
  11. When did you have your interview for West Texas A&M? I had mine on 2/23. I'm hoping I will hear back this week!
  12. I applied to West Texas A&M and New Mexico State as well. I received a phone call this morning from the department of West Texas A&M and have a web interview on the 2/23. I'm very nervous too! I hope we do great!
  13. Does anyone know if we can take a physics/ chemistry course for a pass or no pass? I really don't want to take it as a credit class...
  14. @CallenUnfortunately, My last professor is gone for the holidays which means that the letters of rec did not get my 5 schools on time. I'm furious at my professor because I have been sending reminders since the beginning of October. Luckily, 2 of my 5 schools accept 1 academic and 2 employer letters.
  15. My teachers were late as well. I emailed them both and both of them replied without an apology. One of my teachers finally finished it but I even had to nudge them AGAIN on my electronic eval forms. I'm still waiting on my other teacher... So I suggest you email them ASAP.
  16. I had almost the same exact scores for gre and GPA. I applied to Fullerton and did not get accepted. I graduated and raised my GPA and I am about to retake the GRE. Overall I applied to 3 schools last year and did not get accepted. I say wait a year and then reapply.
  17. I liked reading your story, since I have been feeling the same way. I say go for it and pursue your masters degree in Speech. It may be your nerves that are getting in the way. For me, I know it is my nerves that are getting in the way because it would be an easier route to not pursue speech. Anyways, those are just some of my thoughts (: Assuming that you decided on a plan since this was posted in August, I am curious to what route you ended up taking?
  18. Your internship should definitely help you out. However, I applied to SDSU, CSUF, and CSULB for Fall 2016 and didn't get in. I had a ton of volunteer experience and an ok gpa. My gpa was a 3.6. My GRE scores were extremely low and I honestly feel like that was what effected my chances. So my best advice for you, is to study all summer for the GRE. Good luck to you! Oh and my friend applied to SDSU with a 4.0 GPA and a lot of volunteer experience and high GRE scores and still didn't get in... So I guess it just depends.
  19. I am still waiting for CSUF... but I am assuming I didnt get in. So I am applying for a SLPA program during the summer as my backup.
  20. I just checked and i was denied admission into CSULB. Check your application status online for people who are still waiting.
  21. I called and they said that they are still letting people know if they have been accepted or rejected this week and next week. they also said that if we haven't heard from them, then assume that we are on their waitlist...
  22. I just got an email saying that they are still reviewing our applications ): and we will know throughout april and may.
  23. yeah we will have to check our portal then for CSUF? I think I will call CSUF soon.
