    katherinexo reacted to Louly in What do you wish you knew when starting grad school? Grad school advice!   
    Grow a thick skin. --Your supervisors will critique you in every way possible, suck it up. It's a learning experience...even if they hurt your feelings, their opinions do not define who you are. Your laptop is your lifeline. Connect your school email to every technology you own especially your phone. Phonetics and speech-language development is worth knowing. Get used to not being "perfect" in graduate school. You won't get kicked out for getting a B ? Graduate school is not hard, it's just time consuming.  Prepping for an articulation session takes longer than two hours (until you know your kiddo quite well and/or perfected a few habits). Your classmates/professors/staff members are your colleagues. You do not have to like them but be respectful. Do not burn bridges. Treat this experience like a job because it is. Do not gossip. Research is so important in graduate school. Learn how to read articles. Be flexible. Everything you planned for in your session will most likely by altered by that little 5-year-old in front of you. Another clinician is currently using an item you needed? Find a different toy/activity that can still elicit what you want. Your client is having a bad day? you might end up tossing your lessons away and doing whatever to get them back on track. You will find yourself doing the most silliest things ever just for that speech production.  Even after a month of therapy, you'll still be nervous to see your clients and have NO clue what you are doing. LOL. That two minutes you have until your session starts is still a lot of time. You'll adjust to working under pressure. You're a natural, trust me. You know more than you think you do.  GOOD LUCK!

    I use a Macbook Pro from 2012, and it still works great! I think the most important thing for distance learning is reliable Wifi ?

    I've found mine through networking, other SLPs helping me, and cold calling until someone says yes. Starting very early is key.

    I called up every clinic and school SLP if I could volunteer or observe them. You'll def receive a lot of no's, but out of that there'll be someone who'll say yes to you

    Different field here, but I would not mention it anywhere in your application materials. It may come across in a way you do not intend.

    katherinexo got a reaction from oster009 in SLP-related jobs before applying to grad school   
    I've been working as a Behavior Therapist (RBT, but never took the exam for certification since I'm not interested in ABA therapy). It's great experience if you want to work with children. The state I live in it's very hard to get a job in the school systems, but I recommend trying that or becoming a SLP-A! Good luck.

    I am in your shoes of only getting accepted into one school and it'll expensive since I'll be paying for out of state tuition. 
    This is probably a very unpopular decision, but I decided to attend this program even tho it'll cost over $100,000 and I'll be in debt. The way I see it is time vs. money, I personally don't want to waste any more time applying and waiting around for my results, especially if it's not a guarantee I'll get an acceptance. I rather start immediately, graduate, get a job and start working on paying off my debt. 
    Good luck!

    I personally haven't but I have heard of people being able to with like three jobs while doing an online master's program. I have a friend who is doing the FSU distance program and she typically doesn't have her lectures online until later in the evening I believe, so that gives her plenty of time to have a job during the day. Granted I don't know how it is like once you start clinicals.

    katherinexo got a reaction from AlwaysaFalcon in Surviving the waiting game   
    I agree with @AlwaysaFalcon, you’re def going to end up where you’re suppose to go. I have yet to hear from 2 other schools, and my advice is to keep busy, talk about it with your friends/support system. I didn’t think i was going to get accepted anywhere, and I made a backup plan just in case that happened. Plus there’s always next cycle you can apply to. It’s never about how long it takes to finish the journey, but as long as you finish (very cheesy i know).
    Good luck to everyone!

    katherinexo got a reaction from amf18 in Do I have a chance?   
    I keep reading on this forum about students who have 3.7-4.0 GPA's and they're either having trouble getting in or easily get accepted and it's giving me some anxiety because on both my undergrad and post-bac I have a GPA of around 3.4-3.5 I've done a lot of volunteer/observations in medical settings, public schools and private practice ranging from pediatrics to adults. But I'm not sure if that's even enough... Most of my LOR are coming from professionals who I worked with since I rarely connected with any professors from my online post-bac. I haven't taken the GRE yet because I'm debating if I only want to apply to schools that don't require the GRE.
    Should I even apply when I have a huge chance of getting rejected? Or just move on into being an SLPA?
    Feels frustrating because in such a competitive field, I wish they can see some people who are truly passionate about being an SLP.

    Sure. My overall gpa was 3.54. Comd gpa was 3.75. Verbal 148, quan. 145, writing 3.5. I have experience working as a peer counselor for my undergrad speech department, tutor for phonetics, intern with an SLP, and volunteer at a program for kids with developmental disabilities. Good luck! I'm sure you will get in.
