  1. Recently applied to the Clinical Social Work program at FSU and was wondering if anyone else applied to this program. If so, how long did it take to hear back? My application was completed on January 29th and it has been roughly 5 1/2 weeks so I'm lowkey nervous that I haven't heard back yet...
  2. Hey guys, this is my first time on here. I was wondering if you all could give me your honest opinions on if you think I have a shot at getting into a graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology- specifically USF/UCF/FIU/FSU. My GRE scores are a 4 AWA, 149 Verbal, and 146 Quant. My GPA is a 3.48 and I only have about a month of experience. But, I have 3 great letters of recommendations from professors and I think my Statement of Intent is good. Now, I know none of what I just said sounds (is) competitive at all. But, do you think I have somewhat of a chance of getting into... something? I've heard about Nova but the tuition is really expensive. I graduate in May 2020 too. I know I should probably take a year to bring up my GRE scores and get more experience, but (for some reason), I feel like I'm on a time crunch. Ugh, this has already turned into an essay too. I just want to see what you guys think... Thanks everyone.
  3. Hey everyone! Has anyone else been accepted to Florida State for the Fall 2020 online cohort? I would love to connect!
  4. I am a 27 year old female PhD student at FSU, and will be seeking two female roommates for this fall. I live in a 3 bed, 2 bath townhome on the north side of town, roughly 15 minutes from campus. Rent is $435 a month + utilities. Pets are allowed, but must be confined to the bedrooms as per the lease. If interested, please comment below or private message.
  5. Hey ya'll! I am currently an undergrad student at FIU in Miami and hope to stay down here for grad school. Does anyone have information about the following programs -FIU -FSU (distance, I'd like to stay in Miami) -Nova Southeastern I would love to hear about your experiences applying to these programs, and what some of you guys did that you think helped you get in to the program. I have a high undergraduate GPA, but I would love to hear from you guys who applied to these programs to see if my GPA matches up. Thanks
  6. Hello all, I am a soon to be graduate playing the waiting game with my Economics PhD applications. I only applied to 4 programs (Vanderbilt, Florida State, University of Kansas, and University of Houston), and I am starting to worry.

  7. Hi! I am a student at UNC Chapel Hill and only started taking SLP pre-reqs my junior year, and in the years before this I was a nursing/PA student with a low GPA. My GPA in pre-reqs is a 3.7/3.8, and my overall GPA is a 3.1. My GRE scores are alright... 159 V, 153 Q, 5.5 W. I have lots of experience working with my desired community (children) and am looking to participate in research this coming semester (I will be a senior in Fall 2018.) I am also going abroad this summer to Belize and volunteering at a clinic there. I guess what I'm wondering is.. do I have a chance anywhere? With that low of a GPA, but good LOR, experience, and what not, can I still get into my desired programs? Programs I know I'll be applying to are UNC, UNCG, ECU, App State, U of Tenn, U of Memphis, FSU, U of Florida. Programs I may be applying to are UCF, Jacksonville, Radford, NC Central, Western, GWU, etc. Thanks for any help, I am very worried lol
  8. So I got accepted to FSU's online distance learning program for my masters in speech-language pathology. I haven't heard much about it. This is my first and only acceptance (I'm still waiting to hear from the others) Does anyone have reviews or heard anything from people currently in the program? Thanks!
  9. So, like many of you, I have a big decision to make. I need to choose between two Classics MA programs: FSU and Boulder. As of right now, FSU is offering me full funding. I'm on the waitlist for funding at Boulder, but I've been told I'm near the top of the list so getting funding is possible. I haven't been able to visit, but Boulder's program sounds amazing and they have two faculty there who are very closely related to my interests. One person in particular sounds like she would be an obvious choice to be my thesis advisor when the time comes. Boulder is also a very liberal place, which is important to me since I'm gay and very politically active. Howvever, I know it's also a very expensive place to live, and I've been told that the grad students there are very stressed and not very friendly. I'm not sure what the culture of the program is and I don't know if the stipend they offer is really enough to live on. On the other side of things, I visited FSU recently and I got really good vibes from the faculty and other grad students. Most of them seemed very friendly and personable, and also very willing to help you find jobs and experience even if you decide academia isn't for you. They also have a Museum Studies certificate that I would continue to be funded for for the extra year it would take, and their program has a strong emphasis in gaining teaching experience, which I think is important. I can also take a elective course to work on my Greek a little more before I would dive into graduate level reading courses, which I think I need. It's also a much cheaper place to live. There are some cons here though. I'm worried about living in the South (for obvious political reasons, but also because I don't handle heat very well), I've heard there's a lot of crime, and there isn't really anyone in the department that's working on exactly the kind of stuff I would be interested in. Also, it's a serious pain in the ass to get to and from there from basically everywhere. Overall, I think FSU has a strong program with great people and I would likely be quite happy there. However, if Boulder does come through with funding and it is enough to live on without getting another job... I don't know which one I should choose. Does anyone have any information about either program that might give me some insight into what I should do?
  10. Hello! I was recently offered a TA position at FSU for the MS in Statistics with Major in Statistical Data Science program (http://www.stat.fsu.edu/graduate-program/master-science-degree (scroll down a bit for it) with a full tuition waiver up to 9 credits each semester and a stipend of ~$14k for the fall and spring semesters (total for both, not each semester). I've emailed the chair and office administrator about the program, and I'm thinking of calling them to get more information. They've told me that it's extremely likely for assistantships to continue in to the second year, and that all students who take the steps to establish Florida residency are able to get in-state tuition for their second year (the tuition waiver for the second year is for in-state tuition only per the TA contract they sent me, but again I would be officially appointed for the first year only right now). I also asked about their job placement rate and average salaries for their graduates, and I was told everyone with the MS finds jobs and around $60,000 (though I'd feel more comfortable about having a hard number rather than "everyone" lol!) I was hoping to hear from someone familiar with the department at all? Does the program I linked to above look good to people more familiar with statistics than I am? They post all their graduate's names online, so I've been looking them all up on LinkedIn. The ones I can find seem to be doing well and have found positions soon after graduating in the field, but I can't find a lot of information on many of them - they seem to have a lot of international students, so I'm not sure if they leave the U.S. after or not and therefore don't have LinkedIn. The specific Major in Statistical Data Science section of their Masters program started in Fall 2015, so there's not really any graduate job data for me to go on there, but the fact that it's newly established says to me that it's likely current in terms of the skills it's teaching for the field. I'm really surprised to have been offered funding! I thought I had it figured out when I got into my top choice (Colorado State), but now that I've worked out the math, the program at CSU would cost me $57k for the one year program, vs. $10k total (assuming second year TA and in-state tuition qualification) for FSU's over the course of two years. This is including all tuition, fees, health insurance premiums, and living expenses. It's such a huge difference in cost, that now I'm really reconsidering it. Is that extra year in school worth saving $47k? I can't imagine being able to save 47k in one year of working lol. I'm still waiting to hear back from a few other schools, and I recently interviewed with State Farm for the MAGNet program they have at UIUC (full tuition waiver and pay/benefits working at state farm while in school). I wasn't expecting to have such a hard decision. The TA offer says I could either be a Grader or a Recitation Leader. I have some concerns about the Recitation Leader assignment, though I asked the chair if it was possible for me to just be a Grader, and he said that would be fine. Technically by the contract, it states that I would be assigned duties by "preference and departmental needs," and that any advisor's promises do not supersede the contract. Thanks!
  11. So far I have been accepted to USF - UF - FSU - Vanderbilt - Nebraska. I am still waiting on Baylor, and I doubt I will attend either of the other two I am waiting on. So if any graduate student has any feedback about any of these schools, I would love to hear it! Right now Vanderbilt is my first choice, but obviously finances play a partial role in the decision, and I still don't have all the information yet. One of my other main concerns is to have a lot of freedom in my choice of clinical setting, and my primary interest right now is Medical SLP. Also, for UF I could feasibly live at home, which is an hour away. Is this doable?
  12. Has anyone been accepted to FSU's distance learning program and attending or currently attend? I'd like to hear more about the program and possibly get in touch with other students starting this fall!
  13. Hi, everyone! Anyone else going to FSU in the fall? I'm an English (Creative Writing) PhD. Also um, if anyone is in my program, I'd be interested to know what you've heard about it!
