    Speech Pathology
  1. I've found that it's more helpful to professors if you simply tell them, "I'm planning to submit by X date. Does that work for you?" That way they don't feel flustered trying to figure out when they should write it by.
  2. Getting into school for Speech Pathology is incredibly difficult, and you might want to apply for both anyway. However, if you have the choice between attending either, I would definitely go to school A. Speech Pathology is a service career. If you can improve the quality of services your patients will receive, you should. At the end of the day it's what's going to make you a better SLP.
  3. Number of school's you're apply to?

    I'm planning to apply to 6 schools, but I'm somewhat limited by my SO's ability to transfer within his company and my own preference to avoid the East Coast.
  4. Did anyone observe in public schools? How did you go about doing that? Did your professor put you in touch with someone or did you contact the SLP herself/himself? How easy was it to get security clearance?
  5. GRE improvement questions

    I'm taking the GRE for the first time in two weeks and have been using Magoosh to study. For me, it's been really helpful because it gives me data about my performance in different areas/types of questions and compares my time with other users. FWIW, they have a 5 point increase guarantee for those who have taken the test before.
  6. I'm an out of field student (B.A. Linguistics and French 2015) and I'm not really sure the best way to go about this. Should I cold-call? Should I email? Is there a standard format for this? I'm taking leveling courses in the Fall and Spring at UT Austin but I have a 5 week period in the summer where my schedule is basically open and I'd like to get a head start on observation hours. Any and all advice is appreciated! I have an advising appointment tomorrow so I'm also going to bring it up then.
