Hello everyone! I've seen a few posts similar to this one, but I want to explain my situation as well as get some any feedback/encouragement
I will be entering my senior year this fall at San Diego State University and I am pursuing a B.A. in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences with minors in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies and Cultural Proficiency.
I currently have a major GPA of 2.885 and an overall GPA of 3.32. Ya pretty low I just had some personal circumstances, and Audiology at my school is RIDICULOUSLY hard. Also, my highest grad I ever go in a major class was a B+. I've just heard that the program at SDSU is one of the top in the nation, so that's why it's so hard. I know a lot of other people in my classes struggled as well... But I'm trying my best to stay positive! I can bring them both up a little bit if the upcoming fall grades will be included.
As for extracurricular activities I am highly involved in my Christian fellowship and in my co-ed service organization, and I have held multiple positions in both. From the service organization I have tons of volunteer hours. I also have a lot of job experience.. nothing related exactly to the field but I have a desk job at school and have had lots of experience with customer service.
I have talked to my SLHS undergraduate advisor and some other students in the field.. advice so far I've heard is to look for schools that have a lower GPA requirement and have an interview process.
All this being said, does anyone have suggestions on schools I should apply to? Or any other tips in general?
TBH the whole application process seems so cut throat and scary, but I hope someone can just take me
Any advice, tips, encouragement, etc. is greatly appreciated. Thank you ❤️
