  1. the most important thing for me: it's okay that you don't know everything. in fact, it's okay if it feels like forever since you've looked at your phonetics work or your memory of anatomy and physiology is a bit spotty. first of all, you will get plenty of review in all that stuff in grad school. second of all, if you're feeling like you must be the only one who doesn't know things, always remember that you're not! everyone is in the same boat at the beginning. and, as the semester continues, if you're in clinic or in classes and feeling a little bit (or a lot bit) lost and overwhelmed, it's still okay that you don't know everything. in fact, it's normal to not know most things. plus, if you see friends who look like they know what they're doing a more than you feel you do, remember that everyone learns differently and it's okay if it's taking you a little longer to grasp how to write clinical objectives or SOAP notes or whatever else you're struggling with- you will get there. also, what may come relatively easily for you may be harder for those you're seeing. two words of advice via my clinical supervisors, because they are words that i know live by. 1) from my first clinical supervisor: "it's often more important for you to know what information you don't know than knowing what you do know-- that's how you learn." 2) from my second, when I admitted to her that I didn't know how help my client with one language element which he was struggling with about a six weeks into the semester: "Well, how could you know how to treat all the specifics of that?! You've only been focusing on it for the past six weeks! You think anyone has a full grasp on anything after six weeks? Look at what you have learned during that time; that's pretty incredible." I will probably have imposter syndrome for the rest of my life (it's pretty much the SLP curse, let's be real) but i will always have those words to come back to. because you will struggle. there will be things that are hard for you. but it's okay if you don't know all the information or you feel like you're muddling through your intervention sessions for a bit. that's normal. it's okay. and you will get there.
  2. Definitely consider the University of Memphis! I've heard great things about it for people without a CSD background and for GAships/affordability.
  3. Carnegie Mellon University Computer Science, PhD (F20) Rejected via Phone on 10 Mar 2020 ♦ I 10 Mar 2020 5 papers leading author. Solved ENIGMA during WW2. Fought the Nazis bare handed.
  4. Something like a third to a half of our cohort has some sort of grad assistantship, which is super helpful financially, although that's something that you apply for separately after admission. There are scholarships, but I won't lie tuition is high and so is the cost of living around here. A bunch of people also have other jobs (international teaching, working in restaurants, etc.) part time. Also, some people live farther out in the suburbs and/or have a bunch of roommates to help cover expenses. Good luck!
  5. honestly around half of our cohort is out of field, the IHP loves having people with a variety of diverse experiences, so don't worry too much about having minimal speech experience! if you have solid essays (SOP and diversity essay), that's generally what they weigh the most. Best of luck!!
  6. Yeah, generally most people wouldn't take a course specific to craniofacial anomalies until they're in grad school. Maybe you could take a grad class? Strange that they expect you to have taken going in, since the majority of undergrad programs don't offer it as a prereq.
  7. Good luck, all of you! Feel free to ask me any questions that you have about the IHP.
  8. Your best bet would probably be to get in charge with the admissions office/whoever is in charge of prereqs since that course is so unique. Usually that would be split up into at least two different courses for undergrad. Best of luck!
  9. For UWM- I applied last year, so there's a chance this year may be different... I was sent an email in late February that my application was under review, but nothing before that. So don't worry if you don't hear from them for a while! Good luck.
  10. I love it! I honestly can't speak highly enough about the faculty whom I had last semester for my courses. One of the benefits of going to a school where most if not all of the faculty are still in the field is one minute you're discussing theory and the next minute you're hearing stories about how they integrated those aspects into their practices. (Plus some of the stories are often hilarious so they will stick with you!) And the fact that they are experts in their specialties... that's pretty incredible, especially if you end up doing research with them. I was following the work of a professor long before I looked into grad schools, and now I get to have her as my professor- I'm still kind of starstruck, lol. Also I love having a dyad in the clinic for the first year, honestly it was so comforting to me when we first started sessions and now that a new semester is starting, I will be taking lead on the client who she had fall semester and vice versa, so I'll be able to see the progress both clients make throughout the course of the year directly.
  11. Also, feel free to message me any questions you have about the program! Good luck!!
  12. Hey @Emehteg1! We're on vacation right now, so no guarantees that someone will answer, but please call tomorrow. I honestly think you should be fine, but it's worth it to double check. Best person to contact is Rachel Harshaw- she's basically in charge of everything CSD admissions. I'm putting her email in here too. Email: rharshaw@mghihp.edu Phone: (617) 643-5195
  13. I just reread your post-- are you saying you used the service where CSDCAS enters your grade instead of you doing it manually? If you did indeed enter your grade manually, you are completely fine. If not, talk to the program and hope for the best!
  14. NYU requires that everything be submitted for your application by the deadline, but the application doesn't need to be verified yet. In which case, your applications are both fine!
  15. Hi @MadisonMachelle, I think you might have sent your resume to me instead of @Queene92. Good luck to you both!
