  1. Sorry, I'm new to Grad Cafe (hence why I responded twice). Thanks so much! You honestly have no idea how much better you made me feel. If I got into even just 5 of these schools I'd be thrilled.

  3. Hi! I'm from San Diego, CA. I am applying to 8 schools: Chapman, SDSU, U of Oregon, Portland State, Northeastern, Boston U, Columbia, and NYU. For academics: I have a 3.89 GPA (but it should be going up after this quarter). I was awarded Phi Beta Kappa and am in the honors program. For my GRE scores: 153 on verbal, 156 on math, and 5.5 for writing. Speech experience: I have ~55 shadow hours at 3 different offices, and over 300 hours of working at a therapeutic riding barn (hippotherapy). Activities: I'm a campus tour guide, am on the Triathlon team, directed a club teaching 1st and 2nd graders environmental awareness, was/ am a part of 2 other boards for on-campus clubs, did research in a phonetics lab at UCSD, am fluent in Spanish (I was a translator for a stroke patient) and know a little Hebrew. I also worked at a boutique and in the past worked at HomeGoods. I also have a little bit of coding experience. I taught kids to code a few summers ago. Also, I horseback ride and have been fostering animals for over 17 years. Fears: 1. I am about to turn in my apps (hopefully they'll be done tomorrow) and I'm SO scared that I won't get in anywhere. I know it's crazy selective, so I'm just terrified. I honestly just want to get into one school! 2. I'm also terrified that my verbal score on the GRE is way too low, but I know that I wouldn't have been able to get a higher score. 3. Also, I'm not a CSD major. I'm Linguistics and my school doesn't offer a lot of the SLP courses, so I've taken a lot of pre-reqs online. I'm scared this will lower my chances of getting in. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! I've had far too many sleepless nights! Thank you!
