  1. Thanks! Yes that's the question/issue and appreciate your input. It's a common scenario for most moving directly from undergrad to grad school, and the guidance on it seems to mixed.
  2. I'm applying for grad school and completing the 20/21 Fafsa app as in independent student - FAFSA application asks this question (box 45J): "Money received, or paid on your behalf (e.g., bills), not reported elsewhere on this form. This includes money that you received from a parent or other person whose financial information is not reported on this form and that is not part of a legal child support agreement." If parents paid undergraduate tuition in 2019 while I was a dependent, should I enter the total amount of tuition paid as an answer to this question? Same question with regard
  3. I can't add much but I'm from OC as well and SFSU is on my list as well. I've reached out to a couple of current/past student and gotten positive feedback on the program. Like you, I also have concerns regarding the high cost of living - just to get an idea, I've looked at rooms for rent as apartment rentals are way out of reach and room rentals look like they can be found in the $1200+ range per month - does not seem to go down much in the suburbs either. They may have some virtual info sessions this fall and hopefully we can learn more about the program. Good luck!
  4. Your GPA and experience are excellent and being bilingual is real advantage. Not sure which CSU's are on your list but Fresno has waived the GRE requirement for this cycle and Fullerton does not require it. I have not seen other CSU's waive the GRE yet but we should know more over the next month. With that said, since you were scoring much higher with your practice tests, I would definitely retake the GRE. I'm retaking it tomorrow - also applying to CSU's with similar grades but strong GRE scores can help especially with SDSU, CSULB, etc. Both SDSU and CSULB take your best subscores across mul
  5. You are definitely competitive for many schools with your GPA and verbal/writing scores on the GRE. I would move ahead with your GRE retake on 8/29 and focus the next few weeks on purely Quant prep. If you haven't used GregMat I would recommend that as a free resource along with the ETS Quant Book and Manhattan 5lb book - do a couple hours of quant questions a day and try your best to learn how to do all questions you get wrong. Mix in some of the official ETS Powerprep practice tests - same drill w correcting any mistakes. With focused prep work you can definitely improve your quant! Also, I'
  6. I think shooting for at least the mid range of your target schools is a good goal. With your high GPA that should make you competitive. Good luck!
  7. If you have specific schools in mind you can check with them to see if they are waiving their GRE requirement. I'm sure some will and many won't. I'm planning to take the GRE a 2nd time later this summer and I'm thinking that as states begin/continue to reopen there will be testing sites that reopen - I'd prefer to take at a center vs. at home but at home may continue to be an option. Check out reddit /GRE and there are lots of good resources and recommendations for Quant prep. I used Magoosh the first time around and it's good for quant - good luck!
  8. Agree 100%! With your excellent GPA and GRE scores you should be competitive at most schools and probably just a little unlucky at UWW and UWEC - hopefully you will get in off the waitlist and all will be good. Also "safeties" for SLP probably applies better to a small group of schools as opposed to one or two given the competitiveness of this field. I'm a CA resident and applying next year and know I may face a similar situation. Anyways I'm sure you will do great with whatever you decide and maybe the waitlist options will work out.
  9. Totally get how it's disappointing to turn down the more prestigious Northwestern option but think you dodged a bullet on that one - it is crazy expensive and not worth it for most. It sounds like Milwaukee is home for you and it might be an even bigger perk that you get to live at home. I'd try to look at getting into your local school as a positive rather than a negative, as many very qualified applicants would love to have that option. Anyways, your stats look great and if it's really not the right choice for you it might be good to explore some different options in the next cycle as many s
  10. I would think that what is found on EdFind is probably most accurate as this is data they are reporting to ASHA. Data or general comments on a school's website may have somewhat of marketing slant and may not get updated frequently.
