    Preparing for the worst

    I was considering a two year gap to gain a truly meaningful experience, I'm just scared of getting comfortable with having free time and not studying. I hope you hear good news soon! Waitlist limbo is the worst.

    Preparing for the worst

    Unfortunately I don't live near my undergrad, so all my resources have been left behind. I've struggled with that since the beginning of this cycle. As for SLPA, I've always been told they're diverging careers and it's difficult to pursue SLP after. Is this true? Thank you for recommending a hospital and all your kind words. Its really nice having a support system of wonderful individuals going through the same experiences. Thank you so much!! Even though the field is so competitive, everyone is always so kind and supportive. I'll definitely look for that thread and more information on that because I'm open to anything.

    Preparing for the worst

    I applied to CSUN, CSU San Marcos, Fullerton, CU Boulder, CSUSF, and SJSU. I was too stubborn to apply out of state and of course I live in Southern California, one of the most competitive areas.
  4. Unfortunately I don't think 2019 will be my year for grad school. I've been rejected by all schools, with the exception of being waitlisted to San Jose State University, so there is still a glimmer of hope. I'm hoping for the best but I feel I need to start preparing for the worst and try to find ways of improving my application for the next season. My GPA isn't terrible (3.5 overall, 3.6 major), and I hit above 300 on my GRE with a 5.0 on writing and I am terrified of the idea of taking the GRE for a third time, so my GPA and GRE are pretty much set in stone. My biggest concern is experience and finding schools that are a right fit for me. I recently applied to work as an RBT, but couldn't accept the job because most employers require a year of employment. I would pursue RBT again, but I am held back from reapplying because of a slim but possible acceptance from SJSU. Are there jobs similar to RBT or any I can actually use my degree for? I'm feeling really down and a little confused, but I'm honestly proud of myself for going through this process. It was not easy and though I hope I don't have to do it again, I definitely feel more prepared to do so. I'm sorry for the rant, but I would truly appreciate any words of advice or anyone declining their spot at SJSU.

    SJSU

    I just got waitlisted. I’m actually pretty happy because it’s not a rejection! Keeping my fingers crossed.
  6. I got that email too. I’m not surprised that CSUF received more applications because they’re one of the few schools (especially in California) that doesn’t require the GRE. I imagine that was very attractive to many applicants. It definitely was to me! I’m curious about the open house and if there will be an interview portion.
  7. Hello all, I was invited to an interview at CSUSM on March 2nd. I’m really not sure what to expect, especially since I’ve heard that the interview process has changed every year. The email also stated I would have an additional language assessment during the interview. Has anyone heard of this? I would appreciate any suggestions, advice, or if anyone else has heard back as well! This is my first interview so I’m pretty nervous.
  8. Hello! I don't know much about the program at Sacramento, but I do know they prioritize applicants who graduated from there. To me, it's not worth the cost to apply to a school where the competition is raised even higher than other programs, especially considering how competitive speech pathology programs already are. I hope this helps!
  9. Hello all! I've had a couple concerns about letters of recommendations and application due dates. I decided to apply to grad school a little later than usual and CSUs have a priority application deadline , which is November 30th (is this possibly only for undergrad?). Four references agreed to write me letters, but seeing I only gave myself three weeks to submit applications, I don't want to force my references to rush to meet a due date if I don't have to. So my questions are: 1. Is there actually a priority application period for CSU SLP grad programs and 2. Must letters of recommendation be submitted by the application deadline or can they be accepted after application submission? Thank you!!
