    Gap year & then application

    I took 2 years off to work full time in speech research! In my letter of intent, I spoke about the work I did and how that solidified my interests in the field. I'd talk about how that experience will make you a successful candidate (i.e. working with children, dynamic environments, etc.). It seems like a fair amount of applicants come straight out of undergrad, so that already makes you stand out a bit!

    Should I retake a class?

    One B is totally fine! You'll be fine to apply super easily. I'm pretty jealous actually because my transcript was crazy LOL but hey, I got into school the first round of applications! Best of luck.

    GRE advice

    I found Magoosh to be very helpful. That's all I used throughout my GRE prep.

    Will getting 1 C ruin my chances for grad school?

    Hi! I've had 2-3 Cs on my transcripts from pre-med and a D in a CSD course (I retook it and got an A) oops LOL and I got into the schools in my signature in my first round of applications. It's possible. Remember, it's more than just a numbers game!! Good luck

    How did you pick

    I didn't get any scholarships lol so I had to make a decision based on what school would give the best bang for the buck. A lot of people told me that I should choose the cheapest option... but, I also wanted to consider the cost of living in the area, clinical opportunities, and curricula. I'm going to a school in a city that I already live in, so I don't have to worry about the financial costs and stress of moving to a new place. Also, IHP offers a very medically-focused curricula that I was very interested in. Of course, the focuses of a program don't really matter because at the end of the day, the schools have to meet all ASHA standards, but I really wanted to make sure that I enjoyed my time in school, too.

    MGH Housing and Roommates

    Hi! I've lived in the Boston area for a few years and will be happy to help figure out places to live and finding roommates. DM if interested.
  10. MGH IHP has voice and medical concentrations! Also, BU has great research in voice. Boston is a great place to be.
  11. Yes, I did that recently for the first school I put down a deposit for. I felt awkward at first, but they understand that there is a LOT to consider when choosing a grad school. I emailed the program coordinator who then forwarded that email to the appropriate person.

    Got into grad school now....

    I'll probably do the same thing as @hiimkhanh... I'm 2 years out of school and sure hope that I can cram all the info I learned in college before I start grad school!!!

    SLP Declining Offers Thread 2019

    I just declined offers NYMC and TC. I also removed myself from the University of Washington waitlist.
  14. I sent in my deposit a few months ago to secure my spot, but decided to take another offer. I’m not sure who to email or where to go to do this! Anyone know what to do specifically or who to contact? Thanks in advance, and I hope this helps someone who wants this spot.
