  1. Good morning everyone! new in this forum. I'm an undergraduate at the university of Manitoba hoping to apply for the slp program in Western University. Just wondering how they actually calculate the subGPA? I was confused with the "10 full year" courses where they will base off the calculation of the GPA. Thank you! and if there is anyone here who is applying or got accepted at Western I would like to ask for tips and insights in what made you a successful candidate. I am also trying out other universities but western is my dream. Thank you!
  2. Hey! To all those (masters and Ph.D. applicants) who have been accepted to the BME program at JHU, have you all received the welcome/funding letter? I am waiting for mine. I applied to the MSE program and desperately hope to get some financial aid.
  3. I got accepted into a Speech Pathology Grad Program in AL (Auburn Univ.) and for some reason they were missing my GRE scores and couldn't send my official acceptance letter until they had them (I had a different last name when I sent them in vs my application name) I fixed all the things I needed to fix and resent them. I emailed the Grad Admissions office AND the Speech Path program office and have not received any follow up or even a response for almost 2 weeks. Not only am I getting concerned about the organization/friendliness of the university but at this point my acceptance into the program (even though the Speech Path program knows I accepted and sent me an email of acceptance???) Should I be concerned??? Its still pretty early in the process, so should I just relax and wait it out a bit longer??? Does anyone have any experiences or advice??
  4. Hello. I submitted all my applications on the 31st of November last year and i have received a decision response from only one school. unfortunately, i was rejected. I also found out that majority of the schools in the US state April 15th as their deadline for accepting/rejecting admission however I am yet to receive any response from the remaining schools I applied to. should i be worried?
  5. Trying to see if anyone has heard from St. Augustine! I had my interview two weeks ago and was told I should expect an update between 2-3 weeks from the admissions board via email. I thought that was a little odd due to the fact that the deadline is dec 15th. Wanted to see if anyone else is waiting to hear if they got in!
  6. Hello everyone, It is midnight and I can not rest until I have some feedback that may shine some light on my chances for getting into a graduate program Fall 2020. I would greatly like to know of others with low or average GPA to share their experience. I will be graduating this May. I hope to raise my GPA with this semesters coursework and gain more experience during my gap year. I reside in California and will most likely be applying to graduate programs in the state. Here are my current specs. Overall GPA: 3.42 GPA in last 2 years: 3.68 Psyc GPA: 3.48 2 years working as a Behavior Instructor, one of which as a Registered Behavior Technician 1 year of research 1 year as a TA I will also be attending WPA this year where I'll be presenting a poster presentation as a co-author for a study on impostor phenomena as well as a presentation with Philip Zimbardo on his Heroic Imagination Project and possible integration to CSU's,. The psychology department chair at my university has asked me to help her present addition research of hers on the impostor phenomena as well. Again, any feedback will help!
  7. Hi everyone! I recently have been accepted to my top choice clinical psychology PhD program (yay!!!), and my POI informed me over the phone that a formal email would follow within the next week. Is this normally the case? I guess I'm just in such shock, I want to see my offer written out on paper. This has been a long road for me, so I'm so excited to be accepted into my top program. Thank you all in advance!
  8. Hey y'all, anyone feel like they won't get accepted anywhere this cycle? For me this cycle has been 3 rejections, one unfunded offer (which I can't take, am broke AF), and two waitlists. A very small part of me is still holding out hope that those waitlists will turn into something, but I am moving forward and have an interview with a great job next week and have already began preparing for next cycle.
  9. If you have been blessed/had the good fortune of being accepted somewhere, please tell us what you were doing when you first found out the good news...and what you did RIGHT AFTER. (I have seen some people share this info in other forums, but thought it would be fun to have all psychology ones together in one place.)
  10. Hi all, I have a pretty low undergrad GPA of about 3.3 in communication disorders but want to get into a masters for SLP somewhere. I have yet to take the GRE but most likely won't be doing too stellar on that either. I will be taking a gap year and then applying for the Fall 2020 cohort at schools. I have a lot of experience with a lot of observation/shadowing hours, being a paraprofessional, a direct care professional, and volunteering abroad. I'm wondering if I even have a chance of getting into any schools with this low GPA? Also willing to go anywhere for grad school so if you know anywhere that accepts lower GPAs let me know! Thanks:)
  11. Hey all! So I got the most awaited acceptance letter from my dream school today, that is, Johns Hopkins University. I am super excited about it. However, I received the letter from the Vice Dean of Graduate Education and not from the department and it included the following statement: Please see the welcome letter from your department for more detailed information regarding any individualized funding support, program specifics and options, advisor arrangements, and program orientation requirements. I haven't received the welcome letter yet. Should I wait for the letter or start contacting the faculty or the program manager for the available TA-ship positions?
  12. I know this is unethical. I’m just broke and following what is best for my wallet. I recently received an invite to a Masters program (I’ll call this Program A) that I found to be my favorite in terms of my interests. However, it was still going to cost me a bit and funding for students was limited for this program. I figured I was not going to get funded for any other Masters program I applied to anyway, so I should accept the school that is of my best interests: Program A. Well, a week after accepting this offer, the same degree but at another institution, Program B, offers me acceptance AND a full tuition waiver + stipend to work as a TA. I knew some applicants received this, but I had no idea I would get it. My financial situation is terrible and this offer is a dream for me. I accepted it, and now I’m in the process of contemplating how to word my situation to the school I am taking my word back on. Will I be allowed to take back my acceptance, and should I mention to them it’s because I am receiving funding elsewhere? I’d hope they’d be somewhat understanding of that. Also, if it’s worth mentioning, I was offered acceptance from Program A through email and I emailed back with a “Yes I accept” written confirmation. However, I have not accepted through their graduate school’s online portal. There is a decline button...I’m not sure if that’ll make it any better since I already emailed my acceptance, but I figured it was worth nothing. Thanks in advance.

  14. Hey Everyone, I don't think there is a topic like this yet. I'm from New York and only applied to SLP grad programs in the NY are (LIU Post and Brooklyn, Adelphi, Hofstra, Iona, St. Johns, and Molloy). Did everyone send out their applications yet? When anyone hears back from a school or gets an interview let us know!
  15. Hi all, I am waiting on pins and needles to hear back from my MFA programs and I'm trying to put my energy into something worthwhile, so here I am. What schools have ya'll applied to? What are your top schools? What's your genre? How many times have you applied before? Has anyone heard back from anywhere yet? I know it's early in the game but I've had so much nervous energy just thinking about it. Anyone else? How's everybody feeling? Good luck on your acceptances!
  16. Hi guys, I'm just gonna give this a shot even though I have no idea if I'll get helpful responses. Just a bit of background. I am a 22 y/o recent college grad who applied for the MPH program and got into the Boston University School of Public Health with a merit scholarship of about ~20k for this Fall 2019. However, because of some compelling circumstances, I am also currently in the middle of a job search (I had to resign from my previous job). I applied for an MPH with an intention of studying Mental Health Policy. However, I also got a job offer at a pharmaceutical company. I am deciding whether or not I should accept the job offer. If so, I'd have to defer my acceptance to BU until next semester or next year. If I defer, my merit scholarship will be reconsidered. I am torn about what to do. The pharma job will give me more experience in the adult world and entering the workforce (I just graduated and have little work experience) before I go to graduate school. However, it does not align or tailor to my interests or field I want to go into with the MPH. Should I postpone my education and risk losing my scholarship to gain real world experience and save up a little more money? Or should I forego this opportunity and continue to waitress and do customer service jobs until Fall when I can start the program at BU? I really don't see an obvious answer as to what is the smart thing to do and I need all the advice I can get!!!! thanks
  17. Hello! I am looking for current/former/denied/accepted counseling students from these universities: University of South Carolina University of Utah Vanderbilt University University of Arkansas University of Vermont University of Texas at Tyler Regis University (Denver/Thornton) Texas Christian University Tarleton State University University of Texas at San Antonio I would like to know how long it took you to get accepted and what your GPA/GRE scores were? If you've been rejected from these programs, what were your GRE scores and GPA like? I'm waiting for a few schools to get back to me, so until then, I'm here on GradCafe. Aren't we all? Thanks.
  18. Hi all. I am really quite confused about PhD admissions. I've heard various things from various people--everyone has their own theory on what AdComms are looking for. Do any decent PhD programs accept applicants with limited language training (1 yr Latin/1 yr German)? No B.S.: What GRE scores are "safe" for top programs in theology/religion? I have a 164V/156Q/4.5. Should I retake, or is this a waste of time? Obviously my MA theology gpa is stellar (because prettymuch everyone applying for PhD programs has stellar grades...3.95ish). I have a TAship this semester, but no publications. Am I S.O.L. for all TT programs?
  19. Hey y'all. Worried about my chances of acceptance into philosophy MA programs. As of right now, I know I am for sure applying to San Francisco State, California State Los Angeles, London School of Economics (MSc in Philosophy & Public Policy/Philosophy of the Social Sciences), Wayne State University (I'm already accepted into the AGRADE program there, so this is my backup), and the University of Missouri St. Louis. Possibly also applying to Georgia State University and Northern Illinois University (depending on if I can take the GRE in time). Here are my stats: GPA: 3.75 Philosophy GPA: 3.73 Treasurer of a political activist group on campus. Also involved in a volunteer group dedicated to teaching elementary students philosophy. No papers in conferences. Two letters of recommendation very familiar with my work and enthusiastic about writing the letters. One of the professors has friends in the faculty of a couple programs I'm applying to. Hoping that will help. No GRE scores. This may theoretically be a problem for University of Missouri St. Louis (recommended but not required), but for SFSU, Cal State LA, LSE, and WSU, they do not ask for GRE scores at all. Doing my writing sample on how to legally classify trans folk to ensure that insurance companies cannot deny them access to resources such as hormones, gender therapy, and surgical procedures without resorting to the medicalization of trans bodies. My interests are primarily in political philosophy, legal philosophy, ethics, and metaphysics. What do you think are my chances of acceptance? The dream would be to eventually work on a PhD at LSE or CUNY Graduate Center. I'm also very interested in the PhD programs at Michigan State, Penn State, University of Oregon, and DePaul. For schools like MSU, Penn State, and Oregon, is it really necessary for me to stress where I'm getting my masters at?
  20. Hey, just wondering if anyone has heard back from Brock University for their M.A. of Social Justice and Equity Studies? Or for any of their grad programs for that matter? I'm having a hard time finding this information online and wanted to hear some previous experiences! Thanks.
  21. Has anyone heard from Columbia about the Human Rights Masters? I'm dying!
  22. Hey guys, it's my first time here and I have a lot of questions in my head. So pardon me if this is going to be exhaustive, but I could do with any guidance/support I can get on here. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ME: I'm a 26 year old, Australian National (well, third culture kid) that has grown up across three countries. As a disciple of Psychology this upbringing has allowed me to interact/develop a diverse clientele. I have the following qualifications/ GPA as accredited by the World Education Service ( United States equivalence): - Bachelors in Psychology ( Honours), India : 3.21 - Masters of Science in Psychology ( with Clinical Specialisation), India : 3.50 - Masters of Professional Psychology, Australia : 3.80 ( Provisionally licensed therapist as per the Australian guidelines). I have two unpublished academic dissertations : (1) The Phenomenon of Suicidal Ideation in Individuals Who Have Attempted Suicide Before (2) A Study on the Risk Factors Among Individuals Exposed to Childhood Bullying and Suicidal Ideation. I am currently in the process of formatting and publishing my second dissertation. My GRE score is 302 ( Verbal - 153 , Quant - 149, AWA - 3.5) on second attempt. I attempted the GRE a second time with a month's difference, after I had a horrible anxiety attack because I had interviews that suddenly rocked up on the same day as my GRE. On my first attempt I scored horribly but got a 5 on AWA. I have over a year's worth of clinical work experience and multiple short term internship experiences. Given my performance academically and my diverse experience, I am really hoping to apply for APA accredited PsyD ( predominantly) programs offered by first tier universities in USA. I am thinking: Berkley, Rutger's, Baylor's, Stanford consortium program, etc. I will also be applying to regional and second tier universities with good rankings to maximise intake & minimise disappointments balance the process out. I am taking the year off to apply I am absolutely desperate to make it into a program by 2019. I have 4 questions (one very big confusing question broken into 4 confusing parts ). 1) I understand that, GRE is not everything and it depends on the holistic picture one presents through their applications. But having seen the outcome and admissions data across the fancy-schmancy universities, the GRE scores normally average to about 318 ( minimum). Should I retake the GRE a third time after putting in 3-4 months of diligent effort? 2) Orrr should I just focus on smashing my SoP's , LOR's and getting published ? 3) What are my chances of being able to make it into a well ranked university ? 4) I can do a decent job with writing, sometimes I get carried away or mess up my tenses. Can I get enough help here with editting my SoP or should I sign up for alternative services ? 5) What else should I be focussing on ? Thank you for taking the time out to go through this. I'd love to hear what you guys think
  23. Hey I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone was working on their applications yet to compare stats and acceptance/ rejection timelines. I applied to only CSULB last year, on the application deadline and wasn't accepted so this year I'm trying to get things in early. Experience: 2 years working in an FSP adult/ TAY program, Peace Corps, 2 years intake/ brand management for addiction recovery centers, 3 years senior adult caregiver, 2 years tutor/ youth mentor and I'm also currently running a DBT skills group. Overall GPA is a 3.2, upper division is 3.5
  24. I just received my acceptance letter to Buff state and was wondering if anyone else here will be attending? I don’t see much on here about them and can’t find a Facebook group.
