  1. Hi everyone! So, I am hoping to attend graduate school in the Fall of 2022 and am currently in the process of getting my applications together. I have about two months left until I formally submit them and have been wondering what my chances are of getting admitted. Here are some of the basics of what I have/am working on, please let me know what you think, thank you!!! BA University: Graduated from the University of New Mexico in the Spring of 2020 Undergraduate Major/Degree: Majored in Sociology with a minor in Psychology Graduate GPA: 4.05 Program: PhD in Sociology
  2. I am from NY and I am currently in the process of applying to speech graduate programs and was wondering if anyone on here or someone they know has gotten into slp grad programs with my type of profile or something similar: 3.4 cumulative gpa, 3.6 major gpa, 145 Verbal 143 Quant 3.0 Writing (GRE), I have experience being a special ed paraprofessional in lifeskills classrooms, experience working as a clerical worker at a speech-lang. pathology practice (also observed sessions alongside clinicians at practice), and also have experience being an instructor at a summer camp. If someone could give

  4. Hello! [I posted this on interdisciplinary studies but didn't get responses so figured I'd try here as well. (-:] I graduated college last year and am looking to apply to PhD programs in Women's/Gender/Feminist studies and enroll starting in Fall of 2022––it seems like a ways away, but this is the soonest I can go if I apply in the next admission cycle, for which apps are due in Dec./Jan. Here's my question: Which universities would people recommend I apply to? I've been surprised by how many major institutions do not offer PhDs in Women's/Gender/Feminist studies. Some of the pl
  5. I had terrible social anxiety and depression during my college years, bad financial condition added to my stress. I did not do well in college and had a bunch of C grades in every semester except for my last sem where I got a B-. I am planning to apply to Interaction design Masters courses and want to get into top colleges like Parson's, Pratt, Calarts etc. Do I have a chance? I will be applying as an international student. I have a GPA of 6.6 out of 10....not sure what that translates to in the 4 point American system. (Some sites say its a 3 point GPA and some convert it to 2.8) Do I have t
  6. Hi everyone, I am changing career paths from dental to speech pathology. I applied to GA State and unsurprisingly, didn't get in. I have a 3.2 undergraduate GPA from Salem College (private women's college-rigorous) and my degree is a BS in Biology. I graduated in 2019. I have a lot of volunteer work under my belt, including: crisis center pharmacy tech, advanced genetics lab TA in college, Salvation Army donation collector, research and writing volunteer for a domestic violence shelter, "big buddy" at child bereavement camp. I have about 30 hours of observation hours at
  7. Hey Everyone, Since it's the start of summer, I wanted to reach out and see if there were any lurking MFA Creative Writing students attending University of New Hampshire in the fall! Of course everyone who has been accepted or otherwise are welcome. 💙
  8. I plan to apply for a scholarship and Could someone to help me for advice SOP? as below : My passion with data science started to grow when I studied Master’s degree. I found that big data is powerful tools which can help business with analyzing the mass of data and making decisions. With the ability to analyze new sources of data, businesses are able to analyze information immediately. Such first insight of how data is more essential for organization incited me to delve further into the field. Because of love in data over the years, I have been able to devote the time and ene
  9. I am preparing to change my professional career of working with families and youth in community and recreation based programs to going back to school and doing a psyd in counseling psychology or a masters in mft. Since I need to prepare my application this year (online psyc. courses, gre prep, clinical work etc) I am at a crossroads. I have two jobs I can take: one is working as a behavior specialist at a children’s mental health facility, the other an aide for students with developmental disabilities. The first job offers a behavior tech certification and it is one on one with the s
  10. I have been accepted in MASc in ECE at both McMaster University and the University of Waterloo with full funding. I am confused about where to go. Waterloo is reputed for its Coop program which is of no use in my case as I am going for a thesis based masters and will be working on my research. Is waterloo still a better option for masters compared to McMaster? Please help me decide.
  11. Hello! Is anyone who has been accepted to Grand Valley State University's master's SLP program planning on attending this fall?
  12. I currently have a bachelor's in health science. After working at many schools as an instructional assistant, I found out about speech language pathology and completely fell in love with the field. It's hard for me to get any experience because of the virus. I was a substitute teacher for the special education programs in my area, but lost that job due to the virus as well. As of now, I work as an ABA behavior tech and I do get to work directly with children with autism. I've applied to 3 different schools, but I have been rejected to each one. My grades in the past weren't that great and my o
  13. IDK if this is allowed but... Would anyone be willing to genuinely critique my letter of intent? I have about a week before I need to send it to the people writing me letters. It's mostly done but its not great. It covers all the basis IMO but has no passion because I've been so worried about it coming off as cliche. I've done impressive stuff and I LOVE the field but Idk how to write it to show that beyond just stating facts. I want so badly to get into graduate school for spring but this letter may not do it 😥 Link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n2UO3RW
  14. Hi! Trying to find the right pos-bacc program (in terms of prerequisites fulfilling potential grad schools) and I need a bit of help. So, I'm wondering: 1. What post-bacc programs did you choose and complete? 2. What schools for grad-school where you accepted into? Was it conditional? 3. Did you take any prerequisite (SLP) classes outside of your post-bacc program? Also how did you decipher the prerequisite class names and descriptions? Any tips? Any class titles that you know are equivalent to each other? I've tried e-mailing and calling academic advisors but so far, I
  15. I am currently preparing my applications for SLP graduate school. I know some schools ask for a resume and some do not. For the schools that do require a resume should I include summer jobs I have held while in college? The two jobs are forever 21 and Cengage learning warehouse. They have nothing to do with speech pathology and I fear may make my resume unfocused. Should I still include these two jobs to show I was working during summers or should I remove them to keep my resume more focused? Thanks in advance!!!
  16. I am a 2nd year graduate student in a masters biology program. My field of research is cardiovascular disease. Specifically, I research the genetic expression and protein secretion profiles of unique adipose tissue depots in patients with coronary artery disease. I do not have any publications at this point in my career. Although, I have been fortunate enough to obtain ~$13,000 in competitive grant funding and fellowships. I am currently working on a mini-review and hope for my thesis research to be published, once completed. Due to a setback in my research, I will be staying in this pro
  17. Hi! I was just accepted into my top program for grad school, and I was so excited, but now I'm scared. I do not feel that my undergrad prepared me at all. I don't feel ready. I feel like undergrad was just memorizing the info to get an A on the exam and tossing it out of my head. I can't help but feel like I'm not good enough or feel like I know absolutely nothing. Does anyone else feel this way? Is it normal?
  18. Hey everyone! I just had a question about graduate assistantships or fellowships offered at NYU or Columbia. At my current university I know a few graduate students who are MSW but they are doing assistantships with Higher Education. Does anyone have any insight about the process of locating such opportunities? I tried navigating the NYU and Columbia websites, but I couldn't seem to find any information. Thank you all so much!
  19. Hi all, I've been accepted to the MSc in Global Affairs at the SPS in NYU. Super excited and happy when I got the offer. I love NY and living there has been a dream of mine so I'm very inclined to accept the offer. My goal is also to work in policy analysis and/or counter-terrorism/violent extremism in a think tank, NGO, international organization etc. But my concerns are: 1) the cost: I'll have to take a loan of $80k-100k to cover tuition, living expenses + everything. BIG deal. 2) I'd want to stay in the US to work. What would my chances be to find work in NY or anywhere in the US
  20. Just wondering what people have heard about CBU's program. Any insight is helpful! thank you!!
  21. Hi guys! I recently got admitted to UBC's master's program in political science (I also got accepted into U Toronto, but their faculty is much more IR focused, whereas I'm interested in comparative). I'm an American who specifically chose to do her master's outside of the U.S. However, I intend to complete my Phd in Political Science in an American institution (I'm especially interested in the UC system). I wanted to know if any of you had any knowledge of the quality of social science and politics research in UBC, as well as the Canadian system all around. I really like UBC's facul
  22. Hello, I'm currently trying to decide between two very different programs, that are both great in their own respect. I'm wondering what advice others recommend in terms of criteria to help with decisions. Program A is what I had initially considered my dream program, the research is very interesting and I've made some good connections already with PIs. The title of the Ph.D is also the field I ideally would prefer. The atmosphere here would be more like going into industry as it is an independent research institution and I think would make for an easy transition to that lifestyle after I
  23. Hi Everyone! I have an interview with California Baptist University on Friday and I'm starting to freak out!! Is there anyone that can offer some advice or who has already interviewed with them and can tell me a little bit about how the process went? I just received an email that a writing sample with be taken directly after the interview and and timed writing is not my strong point.
  24. Im in my 2nd semester of Speech Pathology grad school/program and already looking into internship sites for my last semester. I am trying to go into Medical Speech Path. or Early Intervention but both fields are incredibly competitive when it comes to applying for internships. What can I do now to make me look more competitive? Im obviously aiming for high grades and im doing fine so far and im writing a thesis on a medical speech path topic (and im bilingual so I guess thats a plus too) Is there anything more I can do? I cant really officially "do" observations anymore since they do
  25. Hi all! I am sure I am not alone when it comes to feeling super anxious about waiting to hear back from schools after pressing that submit button. I know there is a Venting Thread, but I thought it would be nice to have a specific forum where people can talk about their worries while they wait. So, I am going to first talk about what I am worried about and then talk about what I am excited about if I get accepted in grad school. Worries: I feel like I don't have enough research experience under my belt, especially since I haven't done any research in the fields that I want do pursue
