  1. 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.

    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!!
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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! 👩🏼‍🎓👩🏼‍🎓👩🏼‍🎓
  8. Hi! Anyone going to Faulkner University for their masters in Speech Pathology next month?!?! Let’s be friends!! :)
  9. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Which of these two schools would be suitable for embedded systems? My interests are in embedded software development and system design.My end goal is to enter the industry asap since I already have relevant work experience as an embedded software developer. Please clarify in terms of courses, financial assistance opportunities and job opportunities . I'm confused and finding it difficult to choose.Need a different pov/opinion/guidance. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  14. So, I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands. I took a gap year after graduating from college, and I thought I was going to go straight to grad school after. I got accepted to multiple programs, and I already declined all of the programs except one. Here’s the problem: I also applied to a competitive, two-year fellowship with a government organization, and I made it to the interview stage! And now, I changed my mind about going to grad school and I’d like to get more experience on my hands. Unfortunately, we won’t know if we get the position by July. Point is: there might be a chance I might decline the school after I accept my intent to go there if I get the fellowship. I know that grad schools (I applied to both public health and heath administration) allow deferment for only a year, but I’d like to have a backup plan just in case I don’t get the fellowship (which is go to grad school). So let’s say if I do get the fellowship, should I just be honest with the school I accepted and tell them I want to do the fellowship? Or take a risk and decline the school and I hope I get the fellowship? If I do the former, I just hope that this won’t hinder me from other schools considering my application the next time I apply to grad school. I’m applying right after the fellowship, and this time I INTEND to go back to school. Any advice helps, thanks!
  15. Hi guys, first time posting. I got accepted into Johns Hopkins SAIS and Georgetown (M.A. in Conflict Resolution from the Department of Government). I'm having some trouble deciding between the programs. GU is giving me a partial scholarship (10K-ish) while SAIS offered no funding for this academic year. The reply deadline for GU is 4/15 and SAIS is 5/01. I'm looking to pursue a policy career in international relations (State Dept. U.N. etc.), and am also concerned about career prospects after grad school.If anyone is already in one of the programs/can speak from experience, your feedback would also be greatly appreciated! Some professors and family have recommended Georgetown b/c they also have a Ph.D. program, but I'm honestly not sure if I want to pursue a Ph.D. at this time. I also spoke to a career counselor and he recommended SAIS for diplomacy/international affairs. Any additional insight/advice would be greatly appreciated!

    SLP Application Depression

    This is my second time applying and I am mentally drained. Last year, I was placed on waitlists for every school, but did not get accepted. This year, I'm in the same boat, but with only 2 waitlist. I applied for audiology last year and it seems like I was a stronger applicant for audiology than speech. I just don't know what to do with my life. I can't get a job that pays more than $18 an hour with my undergrad degree and being from NY, that is not enough. I am drowning in student loans and will prob never be able to pay them off now. This even affects my love life/personal life as well. Does anyone who did not get accepted have any solid career plans besides trying again? I don't think my LOR will write me a third letter. Just wanted to rant and to see if anyone else who is in a similar situation has any advice on what to do.

    So... I'm in a [funding] pickle. Help!

    So I am in a good yet bad pickle between two graduate programs and I don't know what to do. So I will give you all the run-down of everything to give you the whole picture. I have applied to Louisiana State University, Southern Illinois University, and University of Kentucky for a MS in Animal Science. LSU - I fell in love with and my POI seemed great when I visited. And his students had nothing but good things to say about him. Another benefit is I would be his only grad student come Fall. When it comes to an assistantship he never formally gave me an offer, but it was implied. So I applied and got recommended for admission by the department - without funding. I told the POI this and he was upset for me and is talking to the school director on my behalf because he has funding for me from what he's told me. I was also accepted by the school overall for admission! yay! I just can't accept until I know directly about funding as I cannot afford LSU as an out-of-state student without going into heavy debt. The POI said he's trying his best, the school director is a busy man currently so getting a hold of him is difficult. UK - I have heard nothing from them, but I am not really upset. my POI there said he would love to have me, but he's full on students atm. He seemed great. SIU - This was my fall-back school as it is in-state for me. The POI loved me from the start it seemed as I have research experience and she like my writing in my review paper. She gave me a partially funded offer (Summer, Fall) and I would have to cover the rest. But she gave me the added bonus of probably getting me defended and out a semester early to save $. But I would have to start right away after graduating with my BS this May. She seemed really positive and encouraging to me, I just think she is assuming I am coming there currently as she has "everything a go" for me to start this Summer. The pickle part is I think she forgot I applied to other schools, as she is/was aware of LSU, and she wants to do a phone conference with me soon to plan Summer right away. But I don't know how to tell her I am waiting on another school (specifically, my dream offer), or how to tell the LSU POI I need to hear ASAP and I am being pulled two different directions. I just don't want to give her false hopes, or hold out for LSU and wind up with no funding there then have nothing. I really do not know what to do. Like I said its a somewhat good problem as I am between schools, just not in a beneficial way.
  18. Hi, I’m just a girl who was recently accepted to a graduate school program at USC for 2 years. I’m coming from Southern California as well, but I didn’t do my undergrad in Los Angeles. Thing is, I didn’t make any long lasting friendships while I was at college, so I don’t have many friends. I was hoping that attending grad school in the same area I grew up in could not only let me have job opportunities closer to home, but make new friends in the area too. I’m just worried that the other students won’t want to make new friends since most of them are already in their “cliques”. I know everyone says to get involved, but are there other things I can do to meet people? Thanks!
  19. I am having trouble deciding between NYU and George Washington University for grad school. At NYU I would be studying International Relations at GSAS while at GW I would get an M.A. in international Affairs with a concentration in international development. My hope after obtaining my masters is to work for an NGO that focuses on trade and development and eventually go back to get a doctorate in International relations, focusing on trade, development, and economic relations. I prefer D.C. as a city in general as it is much nicer in my opinion, but I don’t mind New York either. I understand that both are going to be very expensive in terms of living which I can accept though I really hope to not have to share a bedroom which seems like the only option in NYC from what I have been looking at. I have heard from many professionals that NYU is a better choice because it is better known and higher ranked in general, though not necessarily for the field I am hoping to go into. *I might also mention that I was also accepted to American University for International Economic Relations. I absolutely love this school too (especially the campus) but have found that the majority of people I talk to have not heard of it, which seems a little scary to me. I like the idea of having a more focused M.A. After receiving my B.A. in International Affairs I was often told by employers that this degree seemed too broad. American would give me the opportunity to show a little more focus in my resume.

    Cornell CIPA 2018

    I'm starting this thread to connect with other applicants to Cornell CIPA 2018.
  21. Hello everyone, nice to meet you guys here.I am an international student and I plan to pursue my master's degree in U.S. Currently I have got the admission from Yale, NWU, Boston, JHU and Columbia. It's really a tough decision to choose one of them and decline all others.Could you guys give me some advice and help me to make a decision? I know JHU is definitely the best in BME field. But I believe Yale and Columbia are more well-known. I plan to find a job after graduation, so I think maybe Yale and Columbia are more suitable for me.Thank you for your kindness!
  22. I have an interview for the Speech Pathology program at Texas Tech on Friday and I have purchased a coral colored blazer to wear with a nice blouse, black slacks, and black heels. I am now doubting if my blazer is a good choice? I think it looks great but will the color come off unprofessional? I appreciate any opinions!
  23. Hey guys, I was offered a place at the University of Bath to do my masters in Microbiology. The only problem is that I can't really afford the cost of paying as an international student. I was looking online and mostly found scholarships for 3rd world country students. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any scholarships that US students can apply to. Thanks!
  24. Hey everyone, I recently got into MIT , Berkeley and Columbia for a chemistry PhD. I am interested in inorganic materials. I was wondering if anyone has advice on which one to choose? I would really appreciate if anyone shared their experience in one of these programs. Thanks!

    Honest Opinions

    So, I am looking for honest opinions from people who may have been accepted/rejected/wait listed in the past. My stats are as follows: 3.82 overall, 3.6 major. 152 V 149 Q 4.0 AW. I have some unique circumstances as well, I entered the program as a true college freshman, so I am only 1.5 yrs out of high school (class of 2016). I will be graduating in the spring from a well known University, and plan on applying to the following schools: Auburn, Missouri State, Memphis, Texas Tech, Lamar, and Nebraska-Lincoln. Can anyone tell me if, based on my stats, I have a shot at getting in anywhere or if there are any that seem like a reach? Thanks a ton!
