  1. I personally have worked throughout graduate school. I'm in my last internship and I still am luckily able to work. My program you have to complete your coursework first then the last three semester are full time internships. So during the coursework portion of my program I worked 15-20 hours a week and during the internship portion of my program I worked 12-15 hours a week. I worked through federal work study on campus so for me that was very convenient because I lived close to campus and employers were understanding of you being a student. My other classmates were G.A's and worked as well. I personally thought it was very manageable.
  2. My school had in state versus out of state tuition even for graduate school, however my school had the ability to apply for instate tuition if you were able to establish residency at least six months so see if the school you are looking at do the same thing!
  3. As a current graduate student about to graduate at the end of the summer I agree so much with @samiamslp! Especially regarding imposter syndrome but just remember you know more than you give yourself credit for!
  4. I know personally I chose the state university versus the private university because I did have undergraduate debt and wanted to try and minimize the amount of graduate debt I would generate. I also looked at cost of living that was a big factor to me too. But it's insane the amount of tuition schools want to charge. Some schools cost 3x more per credit hour than mine. That adds up!!! I think it's responsible that you are being so considerate of cost.
  5. I currently attend Governors State University so please message me if you have any questions!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. I'd be happy to help you Feel free to message me!
