  1. Honestly I have no idea. It just seems that a lot of the girls just have naturally bitter and bad attitudes
  2. Hate to be the downer, but my cohort doesn’t get along at all and has been that way since orientation. Lots of cliques, gossip, arguments and bad attitudes. Hopefully you have a better experience than I did!
  3. When I was on the waitlist I emailed the person in charge of admissions and told them it was my top choice and if I got in I would 100% accept my spot. I knew I was high on the waitlist so I’m not sure if the email did anything to help. But it’s a good idea to remind them that you’re still interested
  4. I go to school in Greensboro. Durham is a decent sized city, some people give it a bad reputation but it isn’t that bad! Hope you enjoy your visit!!
  5. I go to a grad school in NC, the only rural ones are the 2 programs in the mountains and maybe EUC could be considered rural. But the other 3 are in fairly large cities! Which schools are you looking into in NC?
  6. Nope! Simply just depends on which “college” the program is housed in at the university. It’s interesting though because I’m getting my masters at the same school I went to undergrad for and the bachelors was a BS and the masters is an MA. So not really sure how it works
  7. Hi everyone, I’m a current grad student who will be speaking during a Q&A for prospective students. Regardless of the program, for those applying to programs what kinds of questions do you guys have. Related to classes and clinic, grad school life, etc. I just want to see what kinds of questions you guys have so I can have some beneficial answers
  8. I’m in grad school and still feel unprepared! Take some time to digest what they told you and take some time to decompress the overwhelm. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the program if you need clarification on something.
  9. I would just say something like “thank you for taking the time to meet with me. I enjoyed hearing more about xyz and look forward to hearing more from you soon.” It doesn’t need to be long just a few sentences will work. It’s always good to send a thank you after any kind of interview, it’ll show your continued interest and keep your name fresh in their mind.
  10. I know some schools said that if you sent more than required they went in alphabetical order by last name of your recommenders. Maybe email the schools and let them know that csdcas sent all the letters to all the schools and there wasn’t a way to change it
  11. There have been several pregnant women in my program. All of their accommodations were different based on where they were in the program. Specifically the girl in my cohort is taking 2 less classes than everyone else (clinic and then one of her choice). As her due date came closer and after she gave birth, she was allowed to FaceTime into class and take her exams online. My program is a 2 year program so a few of them ended up graduating late but some of the others didn’t end up needing extra time based on when they were due. I would talk to program directors to see how they typically handle the situation but they can’t discriminate against you and not accept you because you’re pregnant so don’t stress too my about that
  12. Your GRE scores don’t make or break your application. Use your personal statement to showcase your writing abilities. I got a 3 on the AW and my personal statement saved me according to the admissions committee
  13. There’s a girl in my grad program with a geographic tongue. I don’t see why it would be an issue since it’s doesnt prevent you from being able to do anything
  14. I just finished my first semester. I was in class 16 hours a week and in clinic for 5 and a half. I don’t think I spent 40 hours a week on course work this semester. Maybe 25-30, but that’s because of the type of clinic placement I had was very laidback and I didn’t have to do any paperwork like my classmates. But next semester will be a different story, for example on Wednesday I’ll be at clinic from 7:45-11:30 then I have class from 12:30-8:20. There will be days that you’ll but doing nothing but classwork the entire time. For the sake of your family I think part time would be better, especially since you have the option to. No matter how great your organization and time management skills it will be very challenging. Best of luck!
