    SLP Declining Offers Thread 2019

    Just got off the waitlist at ASU and accepted it. Will be rescind my offer to University of Nevada, Reno and will be declining my waitlist spots at University of Oregon and Loma Linda. I hope this helps someone else on a waitlist. And it's proof you can get off a waitlist!

    How to get off a waitlist?

    I am in a similar situation would love to hear people's advice. The advice I have been given is you rescind your offer and lose your deposit.
  5. Hi, I am in a similar situation. My boyfriend and I are in a long-term relationship, 3 years in June. He followed me up to Nevada and I got into UNR, my undergrad institution. He's made it clear that he would not move with me to grad school, which frustrates me greatly. But he is also trying to save up money and hopefully get a degree. I am apart of a sorority on campus and have a close relationship with our LDC. She is employed by our sorority to helps us as we are newer on campus. She is in a relationship and because she lives in Reno and is from the east coast, it is currently long distance. She said moving away from her family and boyfriend has caused major growth. Explained to me if you are in a strong relationship, moving away for a set period of time, is not that bad. I know it's a hard decision to make, but it's not the worst thing and should not take priority in making a choice. You should choose what's best for you and for your career. In the long run it's your future and your career. And maybe it's best to stay close to him and where you are. I hope this helps and it's just my personal view on it, coming from a similar situation. (Also I may have a different view because I am a young one. I am only 21 and still have alot of life to live.) My other piece of advice is talk to your friends, sometimes they can help you see more clearly. They can help you make an educated pro's con's list and help you look at it from different perspectives. I hope this helps. I wish you the best of luck in making a decision, I know its hard. Keep us updated on what you chose.
  6. Thanks, that's helpful to know. If I get in, I will do it I will do quickly. Can you tell me more about your experience?
  7. I feel the exact same way. The field is so small, I will probably see them again. And I want to enjoy seeing them again and not feel like I burned a bridge. There the reason I am where I am. But I agree with you, I overthink it so much. I'm glad I'm not alone and have a place to vent it out.
  8. I feel like if you talked to them about it they would be understanding. Or at least that's what I keep getting told. I've also been told to go sit in our clinical directors office and talk with her. She's really cool and understanding. They ultimately want what's best for you. One hard thing for me is that there is a mandatory orientation on the day I'm suppose to be a bridesmaid and potentially make a cake for one of my best friends and I would be devastated to miss her wedding. But I also got told by my advisor that other places may have mandatory orientations as well. (Sorry I feel like I'm venting about my situation now. And I do not want to take away from you.) You could also try making a pro and cons list for both schools to help you make a better decision. But I wish you the best of luck and if you do rescind your offer I would love to hear how it goes.
  9. I am in a very similar situation, as well. I have only been accepted at my undergraduate institution. But I have been waitlisted at my top two choices. But one has made it clear I won't hear back until after April 15th and the other doesn't have a timeline, but let's be real it will most likely be after April 15th. My friends, from my undergrad institution, and family have made it clear that it is okay to rescind your acceptance of an offer for a better offer. I really do not want to do something like that though because it feels like I am burning bridges. My friends keep telling me that it will be fine and they will understand. But I am also trying to convince myself to stay here, even though its not ideally what I want to do. Sorry it is not a straight answer, but I understand what you are going through.
  10. You shouldn't feel inadequate at all. Usually there is more qualified applicants than there is space in a cohort. Being waitlisted means that they saw potential in you but there may have been people with higher stats. Also, you never know exactly what a admissions team is looking for. But my point is if they did not want you there, you would have gotten rejected. Hope this helps and best of luck!

    Safeties?

    I got rejected from my "safety" schools. I think that is because, one, they were in California. Even though ASHA ed Find said they had lower GPA's, they had lower scores because they only take their own students, not because they are easier to get into. So, it was more of an allusion and not the truth. I think if you try places that aren't the west coast you may be able to find safety type schools. But I think they're all competitive and it's just an allusion.

    Undergrad Progression

    Most Grad schools have a GPA requirement you must keep to stay in. Usually you must maintain a B average or 3.0 to stay in. Although, most of the faculty will help and support you to make sure you're not getting "kicked out". Getting asked to leave is usually a last resort and any times I have heard of it happening it was because the grad student really was not loving it and did not want to be there anymore.
  13. Darn it, I did not apply to any online schools. That's my fault. I would look to what other people are saying then. Best of luck!!
  14. A great place to find out more information on programs is ASHA ed find. They tell you what programs require, for example GRE scores. https://www.asha.org/edfind/ Hope this helps! Best of luck to you!!
