  1. I currently attend Governors State University so please message me if you have any questions!
  2. If you look at my signature I applied to a lot lol but I was so desperate the last year I applied I was willing to apply wherever! It took me three cycles to be accepted in graduate school! So the first year was 10 schools, the second year 20 years and the last year 30 schools.
  3. I personally took a volunteering position in a preschool that worked with the preschool teacher and that way I was still able to observe with the slp. I did this while working full time at a unrelated position.
  4. Here is information about licensure from ASHA about licensing in the states you're interested in: Rhode Island: https://www.asha.org/advocacy/state/info/RI/licensure/ Connecticut: https://www.asha.org/advocacy/state/info/CT/licensure/ Massachusetts: https://www.asha.org/advocacy/state/info/MA/licensure/ Also if you express to whatever grad school you go to about practicing in another state they should be able to help you or contact ASHA if you have questions. As long as the program is credited by ASHA and you are able to get your license and degree that's all that matters! You can always apply for instate residency if you do move out of state to save on costs!
  5. I know that some of my classmates that live in Chicago lived with roommates to save money. I personally have a part time job to help with utilities and I use part of loan cost to help with rent cost.
  6. I know that for my school as a non degree seeking student you need to pay for school out of pocket. Check to see if your school has a payment plan. I know that mine does even for non degree seeking students.
  7. Personally I didn't have the "perfect" high gpa. My cumulative gpa from undergrad was a 3.34. It took me three application cycles to get into grad school but I got there
  8. Definetly get some experience even if it's not 100% speech. I volunteered at an integrated preschool and was able to observe the slp and also interact with the ot and preschool teacher! It was a great experience and really confirmed my interest in the field
  9. You ranges for gpa and gre are almost identical to mine! Feel free to message me but like others have said I think that you need to work your strengths. Talk about that research experience in your letter of intent and experience. There is more to a future clinician than grades
  10. I'd be happy to help you Feel free to message me!
  11. Personally lingustics is a field that is related to being an slp so I think as long as they are able to write you a strong letter of recommendation then it's ok! Definitely still try and get someone in CDIS too.
  12. I personally did it to try and stand out. I was also trying to be the best applicant I could be and it could be helpful if deciding between your application and another applicant. However like @Lwc23 mentioned some schools might only look at the letter required. I'm not sure how it was handled by CSDCAS which letters were sent out but I just did it anyway.
  13. I personally had 2 letters from work supervisors and 2 letters from academics (a professor/academic advisor & professor). However, likes others have said make sure you follow the requirements depending on what the school requires. I personally submitted more letters of recommendation because I thought it would make me stand out.
  14. I took it 3 times. I don't recommend taking it that many times because for me it ended up being a waste of money since I only improved the verbal and quantitative sections by a couple of points. The one benefit it is brought up my writing score from a 3.5 to a 4. Ironically, I ended up attending a graduate program that didn't require the GRE lol.
