  1. I am currently a junior at a top CS degree in Europe and my current GPA is around 3.0 if converted to American system (the main reason for bad grades is that I am studying in my third language). I will have completed an internship at a Big4 company by the end of the summer, and have some other extracurriculars, but only one is related to research (a literature review paper graded by a professor). Is there a chance I can convince the admission committees that I am not dumb? I am looking to applying to a Research Internship for Spring or Summer 2021.
  2. Hi all, I'm wondering if extracurricular activities are relevant at all for PhD admissions? More specifically, is being "Vice President of Artificial Intelligence Club" strengthen my profile for PhD applications in Statistics? Thanks!
  3. Hi, Name's Bocephus, I hope to become an SLP. I'm an undergraduate senior not majoring in something SLP related. I am volunteering at a speech lab, but the lab has me doing office tasks rather than actual research. I am worried about leaving the lab because I do not want to hurt my chances for grad school. Is it worth it to stay even if I'm not doing any actual research? How much do schools care about research experience? Just some context, I have 3 semesters worth of previous research experience, two semesters with a social psychology lab and one semester at an ABA lab. Once I graduate I plan to take a year to go back to the ABA lab and complete whatever prereques I need for grad school. I would have more xp, but I realized late in my undergrad that I wanted to pursue speech.
  4. I am a first grad student and wondering how, if at all, other students manage "extracurricular activities and leadership positions" (I can't think of a better descriptor, but I'm referring to things like getting involved in graduate student union or similar activities that are beyond a service to your program/profession)? I am someone who is several years out of undergrad now and a common thread through my undergraduate years was being involved student government groups; in my years post-grad this has taken the form of community boards. I am struggling because I want to get involved in something that is larger than my program yet I am already finding that I have limited time. For those of you who have been in similar positions, how did you decide to get involved? Do you have any tips for managing these extracurriculars with the other demands of grad school? Besides the personal fulfillment, have you found external motivations for being involved?
  5. Hello, I'm newly registered to GradCafe (although I've read forum posts) and i was wondering if I could get some help with looking for work experience prior to grad school. I live in NYC and am currently in my 3rd to last semester of second BA grad studies (Queens College for reference) and am very worried that my resume (CV?) will not be strong when applying. I have not taken my GRE yet which I plan to do so come this summer. I hold a 3.6 GPA from my bachelor's in psychology degree (Hunter College) and currently have a 4.0 in my CSD pre requisite courses. I've had some volunteer experience in the past and am now shadowing 2 SLPs (not fieldwork or observation hours) in a public elementary school. However I am now seeking possible positions more closely related to the CSD/SLP field in order to gain valuable experience and, as I have been told, jobs will hold more weight than volunteer/shadowing experience. I recently got let go from my retail job (which was absolutely justified and might i say, quite embarrassing as well) so I am worried that HR from the retail will intervene with me applying to other jobs. That said, would there be any suggestions as to where to apply? I've searched for, child program assistant, medical receptionist, PT office receptionist, PT aide, and tutoring jobs. I have also emailed a bunch of clinics to inquire as to whether there may be openings (even if receptionist or clerical). I've had very little luck however, some responses here and there but no interviews or calls. I've read a little about ABA therapy and teacher's assistant/paraprofessional possibilities but am wondering what the procedure is like to get certification in either. I read about TA regulations here at http://schools.nyc.gov/Offices/DHR/TeacherPrincipalSchoolProfessionals/Certification/Teaching+Assistant+Paraprofessional+Certification.htm but am still a little confused as to what the procedure is like and what is required. I am also wondering if this REQUIRES working Mon-Fri every morning as my classes are usually held in the morning. My sincerest apologies for the wall of text but I am very worried now and would like advice or suggestions as to what steps to take right now. If there are any clarifications or questions for me to help be more clear, do please let me know. Thank you!
