  1. It's very possible you won't hear back until April 15th. Some people that have been accepted to a "back up" school but waitlisted to their "top choice" will accept at the back up and continue to be on the waitlist at their top choice. If a seat opens for them at their top choice after April 15, their seat at their "back up" school will become open. Depending on how many acceptances and their targeted class size, that "back up" school may either keep their class size as is, or look to their waitlist to fill that now empty seat. It is possible that you'll hear before April 15th, but it's mo
  2. That is awesome, I would much rather do some per diem SLP work than pick up a waitressing job, and I literally never thought of that. Thanks!! And even though your tuition is more expensive than RMUoHP, it makes me feel a little better that people from other schools are in the same boat. A lot of my friends got in-state tuition and are paying a fraction of what my tuition will be, so it was a little disappointing. The higher education price tag sucks.
  3. http://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2017/04/05/522575533/teachers-lawyers-and-others-worry-about-the-fate-of-student-debt-forgiveness I just think that I have other viable options, so I'm not going to put all of my eggs in the loan forgiveness basket. It very well may work for people still, but I would hate to follow the rules for 10 years and get slapped with a big "sorry" That NPR link is just a small sample, and the people who basically had their chance at loan forgiveness recinded were all attorneys that didn't *technically* work at a nonprofit, but the first "payout" from this
  4. I think that it could potentially be doable. I'm lucky in that I don't have undergraduate debt, and I feel as if medical settings pay more than educational settings. So the medical focus helps in that, even though I understand people from programs without the med focus have just as good a chance. I'm not really relying on loan forgiveness as it looks like it is going to shit for the people who played by the rules the last 5/10 years. But once I graduate, my main goal will be to pay off my debt. If that means picking up a part time after-hours job, that's worth it for me. I currentl
  5. I was also accepted, and am excited about the program. As of now, it's the only program that I'm accepted to, so I'm swallowing how much it will be (VERY expensive) and hoping for the best when it comes to paying off the loans I'll have to take out. The fact that it is a new program could be a little scary, but I am not worried about that. Dr. Linda Spencer has been a program director for at least one other M.S. SLP program, so I feel that she has experience to lead a faculty. They already have a PhD program, so they already have SLP faculty. And they've been awarded candidacy, so if you

  7. Are you waiting on anywhere else?? I'm fairly certain I'll be excepting, regardless of what the last school I'm waiting on says.
  8. Mmm, I just got th follow up email. But I got a phone call and my email acceptance letter this morning!! It's my first acceptance and my third time applying so I am over the moon. I hope you hear good news
  9. I can't remember what order I put them on CSDCAS, but I would love to be in Pocatello for financial reasons--my mom's friend did her PhD there are owns a house she would rent out to me for pretty cheap. Meridian is really close to my uncle's, so it would be nice to be near family! I would honestly be happy with even online at this point, however! You?
  10. Have you heard anything yet? I saw in the results page that some people got a phone call yesterday that they were accepted! I was super nervous for the interview, but Dr. Spencer made that go away instantly. Anxious to hear back now!
  11. I answered my own question, whoops. I guess I didn't realize that they had just started doing interviews. Very cool! Can't wait to interview.
  12. I'm assuming they've already given out some acceptances...do you know if they have?
  13. Yeah, I applied like Friday or Saturday and I have an interview tomorrow. How did it go? Definitely a lot of money, but I have to think it over as this is my third time applying....may be worth it if I were to be offered a spot, but we'll see!
  14. Are you going to interview with them? I saw on the results board that at least some interviews were over the phone?
