  1. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences graduate program? I seem as though they are looking for candidacy to be accredited? I am not too sure. Any info will help! Thank you!
  2. Hey y'all, Currently a second-year student at UCLA, who has an overall GPA of 2.477 (2.965 Major GPA) and no research experience at my current institution. Do I have some hope in getting accepted to a Social Psych Ph.D. program (e.g., the UCs) in the future? To begin with, I don't know where to start, nor do I know if I have the right mentality to apply (and even handle the rigors of graduate school)... Ever since I transferred from a community college to UCLA, I became more anxious and lacked the confidence to ask for help from my peers. I'm even embarrassed to apply for research positions, knowing that I'll get rejected because of other applicants who have higher GPAs and are more experienced. 😕 Any tips/suggestions, and has anyone ever been in a similar situation?
  3. 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 as a Canadian citizen with a Master's from NYU? I've spoken to 2 alumni's from the program who went from Canada and one is working in NY and the other in Washington. Any advice would be appreciated

    SLP Competitive Candidate?

    Hi all, I am a senior at Purdue who is about to apply for Graduate School coming up. Here are some of my stats... - overall GPA 3.73, major GPA 3.62 - 2 research projects with professors in autism cluster and slp program - past honor group vice president, PR, and ICR... Best Buddies member, Actress in theatre club - internship last summer with ABA Autism Center For those of you who have applied or who are applying... anything else you recommend so that I am a more competitive candidate? I have yet to take the GRE and am struggling to find SLPs who will let me shadow them. I am applying to Purdue, IU, Indiana State Uni, Ball State, Uni of Cincinnati, and a few in Chicago.
  5. Hello! I’m looking into online/distance SLP grad programs. I’m already $65k in debt, so I don’t want to pay more than $15k per year (I’m located in CA so I know there’s some restrictions because of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). I have good grades (3.8+ GPA, great LoC’s and above avg GRE scores). I got accepted to emerson and NYU with scholarships but it didn’t cover enough of the cost. I really like North Colorado University, CSUN, and Akron University. Id prefer to do my clinical practice/extends hips towards the end of the program because I’m working as a nanny and committed to 1.5 years, they are flexible and will allow me to travel up to 3 weeks for clinical/labs. What is your best experience?
  6. This is my 4th time applying to grad school. I have been wait listed or denied everywhere I have applied for the last 4 years. For 3 of the 4 years I have worked and tried to do something in the field of speech pathology or close to it. I was a teachers aide for one year and the last 2 years I have worked in Florida at a middle school under a provisional license as a SLP maintaining a caseload of 70 students, writing IEP's, completing evaluations, working with AAC, etc. I had all the roles and responsibilities of a Masters Level SLP, but I was under the provisional license. I've had strong letters of recommendation written for me, I'd like to think my statement of purpose was strong as I had it edited by tons and tons of SLP's in the school district I am working in currently. In undergrad I was involved in CSD groups, had a job through the university mentoring incoming CSD freshman. My cumulative GPA was a 3.2, my GRE was verbal- 145, qualitative- 145, writing- 4. I am so frustrated being denied over and over again. When do you throw in the towel and say this just isn't meant for me? Although, it is also your biggest passion.
  7. 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 my graduate degree in. My GRE scores are mediocre, so that scares me as well. I think the fact that I am taking a gap year and I am not currently doing anything "resume/cv worthy" right now will make me look lazy to the admission committees. I am also worried about paying for moving to grad school. I really hope I can get a retail job next year so I can start saving money for that. Also, I want to pay off my loans during grad school, even though I know I can defer them while in school. I just am tired of my interest accumulating. Excitement: Even though grad school will have plenty of hellish moments where I probably won't get enough sleep and be able to make meals for myself, I am ready to be back in school again. Despite the homework and stressful tests, I oddly like taking classes. I am even more excited to take graduate-level classes because I feel like I will be able to focus more on learning and less on getting an A on every single assignment. After doing that in undergrad and pretty much destroying my mental health, I am never going back to putting myself through that again. I am also ready to move to a new place and explore the area. Additionally, I can't wait to start researching something I am interested in. I am nervous that I might find out that I might not like it, but at least it will still be interesting enough that I can do it for 5-7 years. So, go ahead and just type away your worries about waiting, grad school, and anything else. Also, talk about what your excited about when it comes to grad school. I feel like doing both will make you feel slightly better.
  8. Hi all! I have a few questions that are all sort of related to the application process, and then one that'll be more based on my personal experience. To introduce myself and give you all a bit of background, I'm a current undergraduate student at a small liberal arts college who will be graduating in Spring 2020 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Biology. My areas of interest are animal behavior, cognition, welfare, social behavior, evolution, ecology, etc. I want to start applying to graduate school for a PhD in a related field this fall to enter the Fall 2020 cohort, and ultimately go into academia. I have a LOT of presentation experience, internal and external, and a lot of lab experience both participating in studies led by a P.I. as a lab assistant and creating my own small-scale study for a class/capstone. I also have animal handling/husbandry experience working with mice, non-human primates, various invertebrates, as well as experience doing research with (but not handling) a few bird species. Last but not least, I'm working on two manuscripts, one on developmental/behavioral neuroscience, and one on industrial/organizational psychology that I hope to at least have submitted by the time grad school applications start. I've identified a lot of possible PhD mentors, all in psychology/neuroscience programs (Emory NAB, IU CISAB, etc), but many of them are at the same school/in the same program. My first question is, what is the most polite way to "cold call" a possible mentor, and what should I request? A tour of the lab, or an interview, or an informal meeting? Also, if I have mutual connections with the mentor, should I drop the connection's name, or have the connection contact the mentor themselves and namedrop/CC me? In regards to having multiple possible mentors in a single program, is it polite/appropriate to apply to more than one mentor in the same program? Or should I meet with them and choose just one to apply to? My last question is, based on my background, would it be possible for me to apply to mentors in programs that are more aligned/directly affiliated with biology departments (like GSU's Neurobiology and Behavior program)? There's a lot of intersection between biology and psychology in my desired field, but would they not accept someone who only minored in biology? (Let me know if you need more information about me to answer this question). Thank you for letting me ask you all a billion questions, and thank you in advance for your help!
  9. I will be going to Auburn University, AL Graduate School in the Fall (for Speech Pathology). Does anyone have any experiences with this school? I talked to some people in the Grad office today and they just didn't seem very nice/welcoming like I've experienced with other Grad offices in other universities, so now I am a little nervous/bummed out about attending this Fall and it's a little late to change my mind! Does anyone have any experience with this school/ the Graduate School and/or more specifically the Speech Pathology program? Any input would be helpful!
  10. Backstory: I have obtained a bachelors in speech pathology. I really want to go to grad school. I’ve tried at many schools and have been rejected. I have narrowed down my mistake as being my prerequisites. I have two Cs, and I know how competitive grad school is. My question, does anyone here have experience with post baccalaureate courses to retake the prerequisites. If not post baccalaureate then how can I retake those two classes from undergrad in order to boost my chances of acceptance?

    School Concern???

    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??
  12. Hi everyone! I'm an International Student. I applied to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts MFA Dramatic Writing Program from December 19th and I was told that notifications are sent out ANYTIME between MARCH 1st and APRIL frickin 15th! I am going crazy!!! It's almost the end of March and I haven't seen ANY applicants on this site with a decision for this program. In fact, I think one of the key committee members has been out of office for 1 week or so, with no "return date" in his automated email reply, so I don't know when he's expected back. I don't want to keep emailing admissions to annoy anyone, but this is ROUGH! At least with Brown University, they stuck to the date they gave (although it was just as long of a wait). At least they stuck to their date. Tisch, I don't know what's taking them so long... I mean... they have 1 month AND 15 days and I haven't seen ONE decision on the Results Search page... sigh... I'm also waiting on Boston U's MA Journalism which I was told would be out by next week.... but Tisch.... what is going on in that dept? Does anyone know? Thanks!

    Online Advice for Grad Students

    Hi all! I know I am just an applicant, but I wanted to share some online advice/things grad students can relate to that I found. https://www.fastweb.com/college-search/articles/the-50-things-only-grad-students-will-understand https://www.fastweb.com/college-search/articles/the-12-grad-school-survival-tips I think it would be awesome if we could create a collection of online things for new grad students, or just grad students in general, here.
  14. Hey everyone I recently got accepted to NC state and Virginia tech for a masters of science in aerospace engineering. I know that the department of aerospace engineering is rated much higher at VT than at NC State and I think I prefer who I would be working under at VT possibly more than at State, but I think I like the Raleigh area more as well as the campus and I will have to fight for funding at both places in the upcoming fall and I am in state for NC state. I also understand that I will only be at the school for two years and I am there to learn not be out and about all the time. Still I was wondering what everyone else's thoughts about the two schools were and if anyone could add some input to help me decide.
  15. Hi. I am a senior in my undergraduate and will be starting graduate school in the fall. I have been accepted into the he grad program at my home school, the University of New Mexico, as well as the Universityof Colorado Boulder. I would like some opinions on the gtad program at Boulder, and at unm too. Thanks. Brianna
  16. Hello Everyone! I don’t know if it’s too early to be thinking about grad school but I graduate next year and I want to pursue my masters (Psychology) I’m not sure yet if I want to pursue that or pursue a masters in LMHC. Anyways, I have a couple of questions regarding the whole process 1. Did you apply to in state or out of state grad schools? How many schools should I apply to? (So far I have three in mind) 2. Money. I don’t have any undergrad loans whatsoever but would loans be worth it now in graduate school? Did FAFSA or school offer you anything? (I’m 21 and I’m dependent so if I move to grad school I still have to file as a dependent) 3. If you went out of state or hours from home, how did you move? how was the process? (cross country drive, plane, etc) any support from parents? 4. When filing for FAFSA should I do ‘on campus’ or ‘off campus’ bc some places I want to apply to have limited availability for grad students. 5. How did you provide for yourself, paid living expenses and such? Any tips would be helpful too! Sorry for all the questions! I really want to pursue my masters after thinking my options, I really don’t want to take a year off. It’ll also be my first time going to grad school far from home if given the opportunity and I want my parents to understand.
  17. So I'm applying to grad school for an MBA and on all my applications they ask me if I have ever been involved in any disciplinary action at any institution. Of course, I have to answer truthfully but I'm really worried that my application will be considered a lot less than someone equivalent to me because of this violation. I want to be honest and straightforward so I'm going to give some context to what happened. It was in my freshman year of college during my first computer science class. After turning in an assignment I looked online to look for more efficient methods and enrich my understanding of the subject. I came across a bugged solution that someone was having trouble with. Out of intellectual curiosity, I put this buggy solution in my repository to debug and learn from. It’s worth noting that anything I learned from in this exercise was never included in my original assignment as it was already turned in. I was never able to fully debug the program so I left it in my repository and commit and pushed it to GitHub to work on later. At the time, I was unaware that my GitHub repository would be under such scrutiny by the course faculty. It was later tagged by MOSS, the program they use to flag significant similarity between codes. At the time I was aware of a policy that restricted students looking at solutions online but I didn’t fully understand the extent of the policy. So I took it to a hearing. Unfortunately, the professors felt strongly that I violated the course’s policy. This policy stated that students are not even allowed to look at code online as it may produce “undue influence.” As a result, I received an “F” in the course. I fully understand that unawareness of this policy was my fault and mine alone, but I think my professors were slightly overzealous in their accusations. If I take responsibility for my actions, show how I've learned from it, and given the weird context do you think grad schools will at least weigh this less than they normally would? Thanks.

    UCLA MSW 2019 Applicants

    Forum for Fall 2019 MSW Applicants to UCLA!! Post questions about the applications, stats for yourself, or notify us when you hear something from UCLA!!
  19. Hey yall! I am planning on applying for SLP programs that start Summer 2019 or Fall 2019, depending on the program. I spent three years at a small private school where I majored in elementary education and special education. I realized my true calling was in SLP so I transferred schools to pursue these dreams. I had spent over a year and a half unhappy with my education major and finally got up the courage to transfer. I decided to transfer the August of what would have been my senior year and it was the hardest decision ever! At my old school, I had a 3.7 GPA, over 200+ volunteer hours in Title I schools, was hugely involved in the community outside of campus with community service as well as being involved on campus, in a sorority, and worked my entire time in school. I was able to finish my B.S. in Communication Sciences in Disorders in two years (SO PROUD OF MYSELF!), but as a result my overall GPA suffered. I had a 3.3 overall GPA, 3.2 GPA in CSD courses, and a 3.275 GPA for my last 60 hours. I have the 25 shadowing hours per ASHA requirements...not sure how Master Clinician fits into those? While taking CSD classes, I worked at an after school program with a really diverse student population, volunteered with special needs students, was involved within my sorority, and shadowed in the speech and hearing clinic on campus. I am currently taking a gap year to increase my GRE score. The first time taking it I got a 152 VR, 137 VR, and 4 AW, the second time 150 VR, 143 QR, and 3.5 AW. Before taking the GRE the second time, I solely focused on studying for the QR section. Right now during my gap year, I am gaining some awesome shadowing experience, working as a nanny, have a private tutor for the GRE, and am studying on my own. I haven't scheduled my third (and hopefully last!) time taking the GRE, but am looking at October or November. I feel like I'm putting myself in a panic and am trying to be realistic about my chances of getting into grad school. Any advice, tips, schools I should look into, or insight about my real chances of getting in would be greatly appreciated!!! I want to stay in the South if possible! Thanks in advance!
  20. Does anyone know whether UConn or Southern CT State University has a better speech pathology program? I have been accepted to SCSU and am waiting on UConn. If admitted I don't know which I'd choose! Please help! Any advice or insight on either program?

    FALL 2019 Csudh Msw program

    I’m applying to Csudh Msw fall 2019 program, if you have applied what are your stats and when did you or when are you turning in your application. Do you know when they start sending out acceptance or denials? Why did you choose CSUDH?
  22. I finished applying to grad schools at the end of December with due dates of applications being on January 15th, February 1st, and February 15th. I have heard back from two of the three schools I applied to. However, I'm starting to get extremely nervous because the last school I haven't heard from is my alma mater and I know that several others have already heard back and been accepted. I have not received ANYTHING. And I mean anything, no wait list letter, no rejection, and no acceptance. I'm starting to really get concerned because since others have heard back, does that mean that I did not get in? But if I didn't get in, why wouldn't they just send me the email saying no. I've tried to think about this as logically as I can like maybe they sent out letters in alphabetical order but the people I asked ALL have last names starting with letters after mine in the alphabet.. I was thinking maybe they accepted the grad scholars first, but I know for a fact that one kid from my alma mater who got accepted DID NOT apply for the grad scholars and he received an acceptance. I'm just freaking out because this was my back-up plan but I didn't think I wouldn't have been able to get into my back-up plan!?? Should I just consider no news good news???

    MS in Biology/MBA

    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 program for 1 additional year; graduate May 2020. I have already completed all of the required coursework for the degree, just need to finish the thesis research. Although, due to the requirements for some of the grants that I have I must maintain full-time graduate status (9 units). This semester I have enrolled in 2 MBA courses (economics and operations management). I figured because I know nothing about business, and am in a STEM field, these courses would be interesting and prove worthwhile...I am loving it! I am able to use my analytical skills in a whole new way. This has put me in an interesting position between going for the PhD or the MBA. I am seriously considering applying to the MBA program at my university, fall 2019 start, as I am interested in research funding and development. It is a 2 year program. I recently turned 25, I would finish with both masters programs by age 27. If I go for the PhD it would be in biomedical sciences, or something closely related. Preferably studying coronary artery disease and working with humans as the model organism. I am seeking advice. I know 27 is not THAT old and I can definitely still continue on and complete a PhD. I would like to work more so in a management or consultant role rather than as an active scientist.
  24. 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.)
  25. Hi everyone! I'm not sure if there is a thread for UMD acceptances already, sorry if this is a repeat! I was recently accepted for the Fall 2019 cohort (woo!) it is my top choice school so I am super excited, but still waiting to hear back from a few other programs before making a decision. I wanted to see if anyone else out there has been accepted yet, or if any current/past grads have some inside scoop. From what I can tell, it seems like an amazing program with awesome Professors. Would love to hear how y'all are liking the program or what you've heard about it. Thanks!
