    I'll be attending UConn in the fall - so excited! I actually want to make a Facebook group but I don't know anyone who's attending to add to the group. Any future Huskies out there?
  2. UF or UNC?

    I earned my Bachelors and Masters (in Linguistics) from UF, and later took all of my post-bacc CSD coursework online from UF as well. I feel that all of my CSD coursework has prepared me well to start grad school in the fall - the professors are excellent. I lived in Gainesville for 6 years and would be happy to answer any miscellaneous questions about the area for you - as college towns go, I found it to be lively and fun (even if college sports aren't your cup of tea), and in recent years has gotten even better with new restaurants, shopping, etc. I am less familiar with Chapel Hill, although I did live in the Triangle area several years ago and it definitely has much to offer. Best of luck to you as you make your decision - for what it's worth, if I didn't live in CT I would have loved to go back to UF for my third degree haha.
  3. It is my understanding that in order to receive their CCC's, one must complete a master's program in SLP, complete their CF (Clinical Fellowship) within 2 years of earning their degree, ensuring that they have earned a total of 400 clinical clock hours under the supervision of a licensed SLP, and earn a passing score on the Praxis exam. The process of applying for state certification varies by state. There is a lot of detailed information about certification on the ASHA website: Hope this helps!
  4. @chickadeeslp Congratulations!!! That is awesome
  5. UConn?

    @chickadeeslp Thank you! I applied to the 2-year program, so they might be releasing those results first. I hope you find out really soon, and good luck!
  6. UConn?

    There was a link to view the admissions letter below the "decision available" statement. Fwiw, my last name is at the beginning of the alphabet so hopefully the decisions keep being released.
  7. UConn?

    I just checked the UConn Hobson portal and there was a decision available! I haven't received an email yet but I happened to be checking the portal.
  8. @justspeechie On Friday I was notified that I was accepted to the Distance Education program at ECU, but I think that several on-campus applicants were notified on Friday as well. Best of luck to you!
  9. UConn?

    Looking at last year's results, they first started notifying students immediately before spring break and continued during the week of spring break. So if they're going by the same general timeline this year, we MIGHT hear something by the end of this coming week or during spring break (3/12-3/16). Fingers crossed we hear back soon
  10. It says something to the effect of 'if you choose to accept this offer of admission, please notify us to obtain deposit info.' There's a letter coming via snail mail too, so hopefully it contains a deadline/more info. Thanks so much!
  11. Bumping this post for Fall 2018 applicants. I was accepted to Sacred Heart yesterday (yay!) but am still waiting on results from UConn and Southern Connecticut State, hopefully within the next several weeks. In the meantime, there is a deposit for Sacred Heart that I am willing to pay to save my spot, but the wording of the acceptance email made it sound like paying the deposit equals a formal commitment to attending the program (as opposed to a way to save your place while waiting for other admissions results). I'm hoping others can shed some light on this... I'm incredibly excited to have been accepted, but I want to make sure I have all of the information I can before making a final decision about which school I'll attend.
  12. Best of luck to you, fellow nutmegger! My scores are very similar to yours, and I hear you on the frustration of not being able to submit a personal statement to UConn and Southern. Hoping something great happens for both of us
  13. Hey! I applied to UConn as well - based on admissions results from previous years on this site, I'm guessing we will hear back after spring break next month. It would be amazing to hear from them sooner, though
  14. How to dress for interviews?

    I have an interview coming up and I'm planning on wearing what I have worn for job interviews in the past... dress pants, dressy flats, a blouse, and a blazer. I think a skirt with a blouse and sweater/blazer or a dress with sweater/blazer would work as well. I'm sure tights are fine (I'd go with plain ones in a dark color personally) - and I hear you, Connecticut in February isn't much different Best of luck to you!
  15. Sacred Heart Interview

    Very good to know, @AlwaysaFalcon! Thank you for the info
