  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!!!
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. Just wondering what people have heard about CBU's program. Any insight is helpful! thank you!!
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. Has any written an exceptional consideration essay for their grad school application due to have a GPA below a 3.0? If so, what did you include in it? My GPA isn't low due to a significant event taking place. it had a a lot to do with procrastination so I am not sure what exactly to write about.
  16. Hi all! This is my first post on here so hopefully I am posting in the correct place. I am in the process of applying to grad school for Speech Language Pathology for the Fall 2020 cycle. Needless to say, I am SO nervous!! I've taken the GRE (154V, 141Q, 5 W), and am planning on retaking this month to hopefully bolster those scores a bit. I'm an out of field applicant but completed a leveling program last year and have spent this year volunteering to hopefully get some more experience to add to my resume. My main question for anyone out there: does work exp
  17. My gpa is 3.967, my major gpa is 4.00. my GRE is 300 combined (good reading score and crappy math score), and 5.0 for the writing. I have good things for my resume. I was thinking 3 schools, but I am not sure. Thanks!
  18. I am interested in pursuing my Doctoral studies in X-ray Astronomy. I was introduced to this field in the first semester of my M.Sc. programme, when I was looking for a subject of study for my thesis project. I started reading in detail about the field of study and some major science missions launched since the very first discovery of extraterrestrial X-rays. During the same time I familiarised myself with the methods of studying X-ray sources and the tools and techniques as explained by NASA’s HEASARC.I read on review papers and worked on my analysis skills by attempting to reproduce th
  19. Hi all, First off, thanks for reading my question -- I apologize in advance if the question is too broad, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions. I'm a senior at a top-20 US university, and I am currently doing a triple major (history, political science with an IR concentration, and environmental science). My GPA is 3.75 (ideally I'll pull it up higher over the course of senior year). After taking a lot of classes in various fields, doing a few internships with development-related nonprofits, and beginning to write a thesis in history (it's about Cold War proxy wars, count
  20. 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
  21. Hey guys ! I’m currently taking prerequisites for grad school which I have been getting straight Bs in. Mostly high bs. I know that many of these programs accept higher GPAs on average and don’t know what to do. I’m not a great test taker, but everything I learn that’s applicable at my job I excel at. I work at a pediatric company as a child Development Specialist & a registered behavioral tech. I also work with SLPs providing support with speech goals & help with feeding goals as well. Will this experience help to balance out my low GPA & possibly low GRE score ? I know speech is
  22. Hi guys!! I'm applying to speech pathology grad programs this upcoming semester and I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips and advice (on GRE scores, interview process/popular questions asked, resume tips, etc.) I'm applying to like 12 schools and just thinking about the application process is making me panic, haha. Thank you!!
  23. 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 positi
