    I am tired of waiting

    I am really sorry. It is a daunting process. I don't mean that you should give up hope BY ANY MEANS, but do you have other plans in mind? Maybe it will help you feel better if you started thinking about what all you can do if grad school doesn't happen this year. Focus your energy on all the different things you can do or want to do, and be prepared regardless of what ends up happening. Take care of yourself and keep faith!
  2. I chose Texas Christian University! -large DFW metroplex -beautiful campus, a relatively safe part of town -the small class size (20) is appealing for what I want out of clinical supervision, faculty mentorship, and placement opportunities -they’ve got a language learning classroom onsite for children with Down syndrome -they’ve got some cool service learning trips abroad -offered an 80% tuition waiver for an 8 hour assistantship, which made this school my most affordable option excluding living costs -this school really looked at my application as a whole and personally called to accept me and go on to explain what they like about me. Loved that! Out of my options I most strongly considered this school vs my undergrad, which is also an amazing program but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go to another great school that is also intriguing, affordable, and highly reputable from what I’ve heard in the profession.

    April 15th deadline

    The best way to know would be to ask them. Or, recheck your acceptance letter, maybe check the link where you are supposed to deposit the fee to see if a time is given. My letter states to submit the fee by 8:00 AM on April 15th. If you really don't know.... pay on the 14th at the latest just in case!

    Commuting to grad school?

    I think you can do well in the accelerated program, they wouldn't have accepted you otherwise! The time, energy, and gas/mileage you save from not choosing school B can be invested into school A. And then you graduate a semester earlier and get into the real world sooner too. I'll add in a disclaimer however that I am someone who's commuted an hour or more depending on traffic (and then parking was its own issue) throughout undergrad and I know just how draining it is. No one needs that in grad school. Trust your abilities, and work your ass off in grad school. You'll do great.
  6. Honestly it feels like a no-brainer to take that full tuition + stipend, if you're fine with living in that horrendous weather up there. Just my opinion but I think it's entirely worth it to do one more year of long distance in order to get out debt free. If you already feel good about UIUC's program, then don't be fooled by the idea of attending a "dream school" when we're all learning the same thing and getting the same degree. Again, just my take on it!

    Questions for a current grad student!

    @bibliophile222 great stuff!! Thank you for sharing! As a grad student, do you feel burn out? If so, how do you cope?

    Hi! Can you speak on your clinic experiences i.e prepping for therapy, how it is with clients and their families, clinical educators, etc

  10. This is far more important than following a graph categorizing your ENTIRE application on GPA alone.

    Texas schools?!?!!

    I've heard in the previous years they've emailed applicants to go and check the applyweb portal to find out their admissions decision
  12. I wanted to apply to 5 or 6 out of worry and self-doubt - but I decided to save my money, trust my apps, and pray hard instead. I narrowed down to 4 schools, any of whom I'd absolutely love to attend no matter which I end up at. I chose the right kinds of schools for my stats and experiences and it ended up working out perfectly.

    Funding Opportunities

    Funding Opportunities

    I was recently accepted to Texas Christian with 80% funding (and possibly more to come, depending on how much funding the department can get) for an 8 hour graduate assistantship. The fee per credit hour is obviously much higher than public school programs but this is still comparably an amazing funding opportunity for someone like me who's paying for undergrad and grad alone/with student loans. It is a highly competitive program though with a small number of seats available, and I'm still shocked to have gotten one. I'm not sure if they offer everyone they accept the same kind of funding, but I know that all who end up attending receive the funding.

    Texas schools?!?!!

    Hi, I applied to a few of the same schools as you. I heard from UT Health SA on February 10th. I'm currently in undergrad at UH, and I know they will be notifying in spring break between March 11-15th. UTD has not gotten back to me with anything yet.
