  1. I know people that did this and they were totally fine!! I think the requirement is typically that you only need two from professors anyways I would say to ask super early though!! Good luck!
  2. I also was thinking about this! I barely used my books freshman year in undergrad so I just never bought them after that and was completely fine! I wonder if I would be able to get away with not buying them in grad school as well or if it's actually necessary now. I did take a graduate level course in my undergrad and did not read the required book so I wonder if it varies course to course or by instructor? Or if we just dont need them!
  3. I also emailed a private practice near my university to volunteer! They ended up letting me observe a lot for an entire summer and ended up giving me a job as well! Before them, I had emailed nursing homes to see if they needed volunteers and in exchange I could shadow. I didn't end up doing it but some places were down!
  4. I used a lot of the websites free practice tests. Every site has a free one or multiple. Kaplan, Magoosh, princeton, review, manhattan review, and ETS. That way you don't have to pay but they can analyze your results and tell you where you need to improve. I also found it helpful to just get used to taking such a long test, get used to the types of questions, and build the stamina. I also used the free magoosh vocabulary app! It's really helpful and you can verse other people which makes it competitive and fun! I used this app after I took the GRE a first time! I used it a bit everyday and increased my verbal score by 5 points! I also used the Kaplan book which was really helpful. If you're short on time there's also a princeton review GRE crashcourse book that still has a lot of helpful info!
  5. It was sooo hard for me to decide! I had a mix of really expensive, cheap, and in the middle schools. I ended up picking a school in the middle even though the really expensive one was my dream school. I couldn't bring myself to pay so much when your salary is basically the same no matter where you go to school! I picked the middle priced school over the cheaper priced ones because I also factored in being in a location that would make me happy
  6. I feel similar except I'm lie did I make the right decision? And am second guessing myself!! but I think you shouldn't be nervous about your choice!! be happy yes!! Any school is lucky to have you and if they accepted you they def wanted you
  7. Thats super nice to hear!! Grad students at where I go to my undergrad always say they feel overwhelmed! Have you committed? I'm still struggling with my decision haha

    SLU

    It was nice! The faculty was really friendly! The clinic is in their basement and it was decent! It's pretty dark but has lot of rooms and supplies!
  9. Yeah that's a much better size haha! I really like that they offer the different tracks per semester because I've never heard of that before! But I'm hesitant to commit without having seen the clinic
  10. This is super helpful, thank you!!! Did you/anyone also happen to ask about the large cohort size?
  11. Did anyone visit? Did you like the clinic? I cant find any pictures or anything online!
  12. I did my undergrad at UIUC and also was accepted here! Personally, I hate the weather here and wish I could move to California! I've heard schools there are extremely competitive! With the cheaper cost, the weather, and the support system you already have there I think I would stay there if I were you!! UIUC does have a great program but it's really hard to get assistantships in the department!
  13. Declining at George Washington University, UIUC, UW-Milwaukee, St. Xavier, Governors State. Deciding between SLU and Northwestern but will be declining one of those once I decide! Hope this helps!
  14. we're supposed to tomorrow!
