  1. Because your major isn't in CSD, you would have to either do a leveling program first or an extended masters which is typically three years and the leveling year is first. They have one at the program I'm in at San Jose State.
  2. Hi! Your stats are higher than mine, did you ever call and ask the schools about your app from the last cycle? I've heard that sometimes that's helpful. You can do it!
  3. Hi! I applied to and got into both, basically you share classes and everything with the other school. I asked this question during the interviews for them. The differences come in during technicalities between research groups (if you chose to) and tuition differences and who your advisor would be. But basically, you're all in the same program.
  4. It's definitely possible for you to get in, if you have any questions about the whole process, don't be afraid to ask.
  5. Definitely not! I didn't have a great gpa and got in! I've also met several people in my program that have said the same, so don't give up! If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask!
  6. I didn't apply to the other 2 so I don't know as much about them, but I'm currently going to sjsu if you have questions!
  7. I know, it was one of the toughest parts of the whole process of me too. For me, I did it like a class. Doing it everyday for a certain amount of time, lots of practice problems, quizzes, and practice tests. It's also very important to go back and check to see what you got wrong and see why you picked that answer versus the right one. Also, the night before the test, don't study at all. Just try to relax and get a good nights rest. I didn't know you were doing ABA, that's an awesome thing to write about! However, I don't think one aspect of an application offsets another. Usually they look at your application as a whole, but depending on the program, they might have standards to meet for gpa/gre that effect your chances of progressing to the next round. That being said, just do your best. You have to believe that if you don't get in somewhere, it wasn't the right program for you and everything happens for a reason. I didn't have super high stats, but I did get into places when I didn't think I had a chance, so you never know!
  8. Let me know if you need one! I would be happy to help any way I can.
  9. Let me know if you need one! I would be happy to help in any way I can.
  10. Absolutely agree with what you said, sometimes professors or supervisors have packets or requirements for their students to send transcripts and resumes in order to help them write a good letter and be organized when sending them out. Also, SJSU has an extended masters program. However as said above, you have to take a leveling post-bacc program first before you would be considered for grad programs unless it's an extended program.
  11. I did this, it was super helpful! If you need more eyes, let me know
  12. If I were you, I would keep studying for your gre and then try to gain more experience volunteering somewhere so you have more to write about in your personal statement/talk about in interviews. You can use your second degree to help find opportunities I would think because you have a lot of knowledge! Let me know if I can help in any way, you can do this!
  13. I would agree with the above that you should probably try to retake the gre to get a few more points, try magoosh! If you have a opportunity to gain more experience that you could write about in your personal statement, that would be great too, but I think you might just want to go for trying to retake the gre as a priority. Let me know if you have any questions!
  14. It will be a lot of work, but you can do it! As long as you take the leveling courses/do an extended masters, it's definitely possible. During your leveling year/time during application process, I would suggest volunteering in a speech clinic or school to see if you really like it and get some experience. I don't think it really matters where you take the leveling courses, but you can also look into extended masters programs.
