  1. Hi everyone, I am applying for the MHI program UofT and Waterloo for the Fall 2019 intake. Wondering who else has applied for these and whether your applications are submitted?
  2. Hi! I am an undergraduate SLP student and I am starting the process of grad school apps this summer. I am completely freaking out. I have never been the best student...mainly cause I have never really found anything I'm interested in. I have been doing a LOT of research online about different programs and what they look at...I've been noticing a lot of people say that most schools look at your class 60 credits...I truly do believe my last 60 credits would help my chances ALOT. Does anybody know how to calculate the GPA for your last 60 credits? And does anyone in the NY area maybe know of the schools that look at your last 60 credits? THANK YOU 😉
  3. Hey guys! I don't know why i'm on here but I decided to gather opinions. I am currently a junior majoring in Communicative Disorders. I am on track to graduate a semester early (which is Fall 19), and so I want to apply for a graduate program for Fall 2020. I am unsure if I want to do SLP or AUD b/c there are pros/cons for both careers. I will list them below: Pros/Cons: for SLP: I want to work in hospitals in pediatrics, but there aren't many opportunities for SLPs in that setting, from my understanding. I DO NOT want to be in the school system, and i'm afraid I will end up doing that if I decide to go the SLP route. Pros/Cons for AUD: I like AUD, and I still want to work with Pediatrics, but I'm nervous about the job outlook/pay for AUDs (especially with paying for doctoral school). I also feel like AUD is being good with a lot of technology, which i'm okay with, but i'm just unsure. I will be getting hands on experience this summer, so maybe that'll answer my questions? Has anyone majoring in CD went a completely different route outside of SLP/AUD? I don't regret being in my major, i'm just wondering if there are other opportunities outside of SLP/AUD?
  4. Topic: Governments should place few, if any, restrictions on scientific research and development. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. The government has always had a strong hold on all areas of research and development. But, what if the government had few to no rules on scientific research and development? There are many potential risks and disasters that could result if there are no regulations on scientific research and development. The government needs to focus on the common good and limits in order to protect the societies safety. The government needs to have restrictions on all scientific research and development. If there are no restrictions on scientific research and development the results of the research may not be for the common good. Having no limits on scientific research allows invasive testing on humans. For example, if a scientist wanted to test a new medicine on a person and did not have any regulations to go through in order to test this medicine, it could possibly harm another human greatly. Also, having no restrictions on research could increase the extinction of animals. If there are no rules on how many rabbits or birds a scientist could try chemicals on, that could kill more animals and increase the chances of extinction. There needs to be limits to all scientific research and development in the interest of the common good. How far is too far? A society relies on rules and regulations. If there are no rules how far could a person go? We have seen from time and time again that the world cannot live without rules. There has been no time in history where a society has worked without having any rules or limitations. If the world cannot live without regulations, how can scientific research and development? The government not having any control of scientific research in any capacity could harm the society. It can be said that having no regulations on scientific research and development could allow scientists to discover things quicker. But, finding things quicker does not mean they are ethical. Where do we draw the line? Allowing a scientist to do whatever he or she wants, brings a potential risk to the society. If there are no inspections or rules to follow, how does a scientist know what he or she is doing is safe? For example, is a scientist is researching a chemical and had no rules on how he or she can or cannot practice with this chemical and ends up getting sick and dying or endangering others in the building? There needs to some type of rule in order to make sure everything is safe. In order to live in a safe and secure world there needs to be regulations and rules. It is very important to have these rules in place for the common good. The government needs to have restrictions on all scientific research and development.

    No Ling Undergrad = No Ling Grad?

    I'm a first year student at a university which doesn't offer a linguistics undergrad program. I've been told by multiple professors and researchers in the field that I need a ling undergrad to have any chance at going to a good school (like UCLA, Stanford, etc.) for grad school. Is this still true? It appears that from some of the posts here and other people I've talked to that I may not, but I'm still on the fence. If I transfer undergrad schools, I'll leave the friends I've made so far, probably have to retake multiple courses, and incur a ton of debt (not including grad school). However, if I stay, I'll keep my presidential scholarship and my friends but I might miss out on the chance to study linguistics as a career and I don't know what my backup plan will be. Any suggestions?

    should I go to a small program?

    Hi there, I got a PhD offer this year and really hope to receive some suggestions. The supervisor has a big name in my field and she is super nice. Also, the location is quite good. However, the program is pretty small (only 3 faculty members and they only send 1-2 PhD offers each year) and the fundings can't be guaranteed. My supervisor told me I will get 6-month RA support and 9-month tuition waiver in the first year. It will depend on my progress to get different types of fundings in the next 4 years. Does anyone have some opinions? Thx a lot!!!
  9. Hey, I am finishing my Junior year to get my B.A. in psychology (with another B.A. in English and a minor in American Sign Language), and I want to start my working towards my PHD in clinical psychology with a focus on children and health in the Fall of 2020. My GPA is currently a 3.969, and I will be graduating from my school's honor college. I will be taking my GREs this summer. I have been working in a Pediatric Health Psych lab and have been involved with many different health studies. However, I haven't done a poster or paper of my own, though I will be third author on a paper summer. I want to eventually work with children with chronic illnesses. Additionally, I have training and am a leader for The Body Project, and volunteer with the National Eating Disorder Association in the city I go to school in. I am involved with PSI CHI, and I teach at a STEM camp for adolescents every summer since I was 16 (now 23). I worked with an autism unit in a middle school for 6 years, as a teenager, before college, as well as a social behavioral skills program and a life skills program at the same school. I continue to volunteer at the autism research center at my university. It took me three extra years to graduate high school, due to my own life long chronic illness, and am anxious not to move straight into my PHD after graduation. There are some masters programs I am interested in as a fallback. Do ya'll think I have a chance at getting into a PHD program if I apply this Fall? Thanks!
  10. Hi all So I'm getting a late start on this stuff. I am actually in the middle of applying/receiving decisions for law school and have suddenly realized that I have no desire to be a lawyer after law school (better later never!). My goal for pursuing law school has always been to pursue a gig doing policy analysis and figured law school would be the best route. Only problem is the debt just isn't worth it. So, now I am planning on applying to different MPP programs. My undergrad coursework was very economics-focused and included multiple statistics and econometrics courses, so I'm hoping the quant aspect of these programs won't be too daunting. I would prefer to start fall 2019, but I realize that I am getting a VERY late start and finance packages may be slim as we are heading into rolling admissions. A couple thoughts: a) is it worth it to apply late into the cycle and try to start Fall 2019 or b) should I wait until next cycle? For reference I've included a couple stats about myself below sub3.0 GPA- BS in Economics from top 20 public, state school (concentrations in Macroeconomics and Quantitative Theory) took my first cold GRE prac exam and got 157V 154Q (159 LSAT) 4 years of full-time work- currently working in public finance doing policy analysis and implementation I'm still kind of in test taking mode since taking the LSAT within the past couple months, so hopefully I can use that momentum to get some effective studying in and boost that GRE score. Im shooting for 315-320. I'm very new to the grad school realm of forums (law school reddit is a wild, wild place), so any advice would be very helpful. Cheers Funkycat

    How do you spend the days?

    Hey, Y'all! I wanted to create this topic so we could talk about how we spend our days while waiting for responses. From my side, I started watching soap opera with my grandmother and everything we do is laugh about the characters. I am taking just a few credits to graduate and it's been hard for me to ignore my email, which is one of my daily goals. Other than that, I've been to the beach (Caribbean boi), have started a couple of TV shows on Netflix, and have learned more about cooking.

    Are early applications prefered?

    Has anyone ever heard or knows whether grad applications that are submitted earlier are preferred over ones that are not? I ask because I had an interesting email correspondence with a department admin at a school and the language made it seem like earlier applications have a leg up. I don't know though, so i thought I ask the grad cafe community. Don't ask me the school name or admin name, I'm obviously not going to put any department or individual on the spot because of the "feelings" that I got from reading an email. That would be pretty unfair and crappy. lol
  13. Hi, I've applied to a 5 grad schools for Engineering Management and I'm yet to receive the decisions from 4 schools. One of the schools has offered me admissions as well as a scholarship offer. However, I've the deadline to respond to this in about another week's time. This school is my 5th choice among the 5 schools. Can I accept the offer now and then later decline it if I get into any of the other schools? Or should I ask for a date extension as to when I can accept or decline their offer?
  14. I was recently admitted to ENMU’s communication disorders program and North Carolina central university. I’m still debating between the two programs and would like any kind of feedback from ENMU past graduates. How are the professors? Classes? Is it fairly easy to get placed in an externship? How is the location of the university? Also ENMU tuition is significantly cheaper than NCCU’s even though it’s the same program.
  15. Hi Everyone! I just want to chime in here as this application season has been very overwhelming. I am applying for the fall 2019 for grad school in speech language pathology. The road to getting here has been very long as it took me a while to get in this career path. I am currently finishing up some pre-requisites online, studying for GRE, and working on grad school applications. Is anyone else on the same boat? Also, I am 29 years old and the thought of turning 30 in grad school is sometimes a bit terrifying. However, I am determined to defy all the odds and give it a shot to get in a program. I am applying for 13 schools. Anyone else like this? Thoughts? Concerns? Thanks.
  16. I know a high GPA is necessary, but far from sufficient. However, I wonder what GPA is considered as a weak point in the application? Will a 3.6 GPA be too low for top 20 programs?
  17. I would like to know other’s stats/stories of those who had low GPA’s and how they got accepted into graduate school. Hopefully it can show not only me, but others who are also losing hope that there is always a chance of getting in!

    ONLINE SLP GRAD SCHOOL

    HI EVERYONE! I am in my mid 20s applying to online grad school, I was wondering what a typical work load for online grad school looks like, and what are some difficulties youve faced other than time management...I keep hearing that grad school is WAY more challenging then under grad, but thats also whats told to kids in HIGHSCHOOL that college is WAY harder. I didnt find my undergrad in CSD too bad, the tough times were short lived... Also since I am entering my mid 20s, its a where I am thinking about starting a family with my husband, if you have any experience with online slp grad school and a baby, PLEASE SHARE IT WITH ME!! THANK YOU!!
  19. Hi all! So I have a bit of a dilemma - I'm a non traditional student (majored in Business during undergrad), and am intent on pursuing a PhD in Psychology. I'm not entirely sure what area specifically I want to go down yet, as I'm interested in both Clinical and Neuro Psych at the moment. In order to apply to either, though, I obviously need to take some pre-requisites, get involved in research work and try to get in some publications/posters. I've been accepted to the Masters program in Clinical Psychology at Teachers College (Columbia) as well as to the Post Bacc program in Psychology at Columbia. I'm trying to figure out which is a better option for me, as both seem to pose good advantages. If anyone has any thoughts on this or any advice they could share, I would really appreciate it! Thanks for reading through this
  20. Hello!! While I will be applying to grad schools for speech, I also just recently applied to Ball State's ABA Masters Program. Would anyone happen to have any insight on the program (reputation, price, etc). Like I'm looking to hear from a personal perspective if anything. Thank you!
  21. Hey! This is my first post so let me know if I didn't do it correctly please. So writing my statement if purpose for 2019 fall admissions....heres my background and the jist of my issues... Unlike others, I don't have a family member with a disability. My parents own their own business supporting people with disabilities. Since I was 3, my parents would bring me to work with them everyday because I think my mom had this irrational fear that I would be abducted by my babysitter. Ok not important, BUT because of this, until I was about 13 I was going to work with my parents and helping push wheelchairs, and going on outings with them and their clients. So I am familiar with a wide range of disabilities and wonderful people and ahhh I love them so much. Anyway, I knew I loved working with people with disabilities because it's my family's whole life, and I still see the clients a lot. Additionally, this summer I started working for my parents as a second job. I started volunteering in my High school special education class and that's when I fell in love with Autism, and learned about speech pathology. But I didn't know that I could work with people with brain injury, cerebral palsy, or dementias! I discovered that in my anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing class. So I found out I could also work with adults with those conditions/disabilities (sorry that's such awkward wording and I don't know how to say it any better! Sorry). Additionally, I work at a hospital and go into the NICU a lot and the nurses always talk to me about how important the Slps are to these infants and feeding. So I'm also intrigued with pediatric feeding and swallowing. So how do I protect privacy in my statement of purpose as to why I want to be a speech language pathologist? I don't want to write a novel and I haven't even included in my "brief" summary about how these individuals have personally impacted me and how now when I see them I'm like omg I'm literally watching swallowing precautions and they're following them! There's actually more important information but I don't want to violate privacy because a.) That's just wrong and b.) It would look really bad if I can't protect privacy. I don't really even feel comfortable posting this! I'm all about that privacy, yo. Also...i feel like I'm banking off of my parents business and what my parents do...its my whole life but still...it sounds not good. How can I discuss it in my SOP without writing a novel, and respecting privacy, and making it connected and not sound like I'm using my parents achievements? Thankyou, and let me know if I revealed too much and should delete this! I want to keep it vague but not too vague. Ok have a wonderful day, let me know what I should Do! ??‍???‍???‍?
  22. Hi! Anyone going to Faulkner University for their masters in Speech Pathology next month?!?! Let’s be friends!! :)
  23. Hello everyone! I've seen a few posts similar to this one, but I want to explain my situation as well as get some any feedback/encouragement I will be entering my senior year this fall at San Diego State University and I am pursuing a B.A. in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences with minors in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies and Cultural Proficiency. I currently have a major GPA of 2.885 and an overall GPA of 3.32. Ya pretty low I just had some personal circumstances, and Audiology at my school is RIDICULOUSLY hard. Also, my highest grad I ever go in a major class was a B+. I've just heard that the program at SDSU is one of the top in the nation, so that's why it's so hard. I know a lot of other people in my classes struggled as well... But I'm trying my best to stay positive! I can bring them both up a little bit if the upcoming fall grades will be included. As for extracurricular activities I am highly involved in my Christian fellowship and in my co-ed service organization, and I have held multiple positions in both. From the service organization I have tons of volunteer hours. I also have a lot of job experience.. nothing related exactly to the field but I have a desk job at school and have had lots of experience with customer service. I have talked to my SLHS undergraduate advisor and some other students in the field.. advice so far I've heard is to look for schools that have a lower GPA requirement and have an interview process. All this being said, does anyone have suggestions on schools I should apply to? Or any other tips in general? TBH the whole application process seems so cut throat and scary, but I hope someone can just take me Any advice, tips, encouragement, etc. is greatly appreciated. Thank you ❤️

    Salus University

    I was just accepted into Salus University today for a masters in speech pathology. A required speech class that I took as an undergrad ( It was Intro to Communication Disorders and I went to Temple University) is not deemed equivalent so they want me to take an equivalent class (Language & the Brain) over the summer. An admissions person gave me two online schools but they either do not have an equivalent or the class is filled already or I have no idea what the equivalent is. Any recommendations on what to do???? I'M FREAKING OUT. The class they want me to take is called Language and the Brain (at Temple that's what it is called so I don't know what an equivalent would be called and I didn't take it since it wasn't required). Below I attached the description of the class they need me to take but its the description from my undergrad.
  25. Hi Everyone, I have an urgent question. I have just been admitted to the Hertie School of Governance for their Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program. This is basically a flexible track program which you can finish between 1-5 years. It is meant for working professionals (avg. student experience 10 years) who are in their mid-career and want further education, skills or interaction in their fields to progress. The actual course attendance is only 43 days with compulsory and elective courses along with skills training workshops. Hence it is meant for people who are working and can take the course at the same time. My dilemma is that I am a Marketing and Brands professional (6 years of experience) and based out of Dubai, U.A.E. I want to switch my field towards public administration, governmental affairs, NGOs, international development and sustainability. However, I will leave my job and move to Berlin for one year (opting for the 1 year track) and work part time on a student visa. I have tried very hard to find student reviews on this program, however I can't find any. Can anyone help me with the below who has attended or knows of the program? 1. Is the program structure good and will it help me learn a different skill set in order to switch my field? 2. What do you think of the program and the school? 3. Will I be able to find a job in the public / semi-public / consultancy sector with no knowledge of German? Of course I plan to take intensive classes to learn the language, but given that German is a difficult language for someone from my background, I know I would only be able to learn the basics in one year and would have to look for a job within that time on a student visa. Thank you for any help or answers in advance. Best Regards, A Hopeful Executive MPA Student
