  1. I am looking into the SLP programs that I can apply for Fall 2018, but I'm having some dilemma. School A requires more graduate coursework and research, and it offers courses such as Cranial Facial Abnormity (cleft palate) and two challenging courses in neurogenic communication disorders. On the other hand, School B requires no research, and it requires less coursework and doesn't offer specific courses in cleft palate and neuro, thus it's less challenging. I understand School A will get me more prepared for my SLP career, and I need to learn cleft palate and neuro stuff for my long-term professional development. However, my immediate concern is to survive grad school, and I believe I can do better with school B as it is less challenging. These two schools are similar in reputation, cost and distance. I need your opinion guys!
  2. GRE Score Confusion

    I took my GRE General test on 10/31/2016, and the unofficial test score was published immediately to me after the test, with Verbal 162 and Quantitative 162. After about 10 days, the official score report was also published within my ETS GRE account, with the same scores (Verbal 162 and Quantitative 162), in addition to the Writing score of 4.5. Four free score reports have also been sent to four schools after the test with the same scores of 162 for both the Verbal and Quantitative parts. However, I was trying to order additional score reports yesterday, and surprisingly noticed that both my Verbal and Quantitative scores have been changed to 161 from their originals of 162. I don't know why that could happen and wonder whether it's a technical error that caused the problem. From my understanding, if the scores are published as official, there shouldn't be any changes after that especially after score reports containing my original scores have already been sent to universities. Anyone has similar experiences?
  3. ENMU 2nd Bachelor's

    Thanks for the reply. I saw that the ENMU 2nd bachelor's degree contains 14 courses (38 credit hours) in the field of Communication Disorder. I wonder whether they are all the courses I need to take in order to receive the 2nd bachelor's degree? Or, does the 2nd bachelor's degree also require any other courses?
  4. ENMU 2nd Bachelor's

    I'd also like to know. Anyone has any ideas?
  5. Hey guys, I'm selecting between the online post-bac programs of New Paltz and ENMU, and would like to hear your thoughts. I live in NY and New Paltz is only 20 minutes away, I will definitely apply New Paltz for grad school even if I study post-bac elsewhere. However, some courses, such as Aural Rehabilitation and Articulation Disorder, are not offered by the New Paltz online program, and these courses are prerequisites of many other schools. I recently found that ENMU offers more leveling courses online, and it could even lead to a 2nd bachelor degree. Courses not offered by New Paltz are offered by ENMU, and their costs are also almost the same. However, I did some research here and many people have negative opinions toward ENMU, saying their online professors are not very attentive and responsive, and ENMU doesn't have many lecture recordings but only reading materials. I'm concerned whether I would be able to get a strong recommendation from an ENMU online professor in the future after I attend the program. I know many people speak highly of USU, but I don't like its proctored testing method, and I'm deciding between New Paltz and ENMU. Any thoughts guys? I really appreciate!
  6. Political Science - Fall 2011 Cycle

    I also applied to Amherst, but still have no information from them. Is anyone who also hear nothing from Amherst like me?
  7. Do I still stand a chance to get funding?

    what university?
  8. UCONN Phd

    And have they told you the date of the campus visit for admitted students?
  9. UCONN Phd

    Thanks GradHappy. May I know your subfield? And is there any specification about the funding in your offer letter? Are they fellowship or TA, RA?
  10. UCONN Phd

    Has anyone here received funding from Uconn? Please claim, thank you!
  11. UCONN Phd

    I've heard no news yet. And I actually have no idea that I'm on the waitilist for funding, since I haven't heard anyone claim they are granted funding yet. So would you like to let me know more about the waitlist things?
  12. Need advice about school selection

    if you want to stay in the US, you should look for a job in the country after earning the MA, rather than applying for a phd program.
  13. UCONN Phd

    Hi all, I've been accepted by UCONN's PhD program. It seems that my research interest perfectly matches my prospective advisor's, and I also like UCONN's campus and environment wholeheartedly. Anyway, I have a feeling that UCONN is the most perfect place for me. However, the funding decision hasn't been rendered yet, which makes me feel uneasy because my financial situation won't allow me to be enrolled without full assistantship. I want to ask UCONN phds here that, how many of you receive no funding or only partial funding from the department? I'll feel relieved if you tell me that full financial support is generally available to every incoming phds. Thanks!
