  1. Hi! I live in Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas. I am trying to gain as many observation hours as I can before I submit an OT application to TWU. I only have 20 hours from Children's right now. One hospital in Lewisville do not accept observers. Where have you guys contacted for observations? Is it common to find many clinics reject observers? Thanks!
  2. Hi folks, So I just transferred into a CommDis program, and I am receiving good marks: but I am wondering about certain facets of the grad school application. For example, student research at my school is incredibly hard to come by: this is because there is a large number of CommDis majors at my school with frankly, all of the same qualifications, so the chances of any student(even with good grades) being accepted into one of these positions is few and far between. Is there a way to offset this in my application, or any organizations that allow students to participate in research? Ad
  3. Hi all, This is my first post. After searching a bit through the forum, I haven't really found an answer to the questions I am asking. While some types of work experience definitely seem to be more valuable than others, I was just hoping for any information about how volunteer work and community/grassroots organizing is valued for MPA/MPP students? My ideal career is hopefully gonna combine policy, communications, and outreach. I have worked as a community organizer for a non-profit dealing with reproductive rights for about a year. Additionally, I also have six years of volunteer experie
  4. Hi all :-) I've been trying to find some interesting volunteering opportunities for the summer and upcoming academic year, and it's got me thinking... I had been strongly considering volunteering at the local community college or public library as an ESL tutor/ general tutor for adults prepping for the GRE -- it sounded rewarding and reasonably relevant to my SLP interests. The thing is, I've also been checking out SLP job listings in my geographical area to get an idea of what's out there on the other side of all this school, and almost every listing I've seen has been pediatric (early interv
  5. The title probably gave you an idea about how indecisive I'll sound in the following few sentences so here it goes: I graduated from a Canadian university with a BA in Political Science (focus: political philosophy, int'l development) and another totally different and unrelated to my inquiries discipline. As a result, my experience is in, well, research and some odd jobs here and there relating to communications and teaching. I never really planned to work in either field, the plan was always to do a Master's degree or another (professional) Bach'. I've narrowed down the programs that I'm i
  6. Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums but I've been browsing and there's a lot of useful information! I'll be applying to MSW programs in this upcoming application period and I'm worried about my amount of experience. My grades are pretty good and I have some good letters of rec accounted for already. I am a strong writer so I'm confident my admissions essays and personal statements will be of quality. But I haven't done a lot of volunteering (looking to rectify that ASAP.) However, I have two and a half years of experience (three by the time I apply) working with kids in the daycare at
  7. Hello folks, Happy holidays! I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with mentoring through Big Brothers Big Sisters or another organization. That is something I would like to pursue. I enjoy learning about people (in this case, children and adolescents), spending time with them, and lending support to promote their growth. Indeed, building relationships with students and colleagues, nurturing growth (of the intellectual and professional kind, usually) is one of the primary reasons I've sought a career in academia. Mentoring a child/teenager is simply consistent with this goal.
