  1. Hi 😃 This is my first time posting on here. I have gotten a lot of useful information from here in the past so I figured I would give it a shot! I am currently finishing my Bachelor's degree in Sociology and will be graduating in December of this year. I had a lot of family issues when I was completing my Associate's degree at my community college, and this severely affected my GPA. It was far too low to apply to a Bachelor's program in Speech Pathology to start off. I decided to major in Sociology for my Bachelor's because it is a field that I am very passionate about and was easier to get into because I was part of the CAP program at my community college. I have gotten an A in every single course I have taken for my undergrad, besides 1 B, and have been able to raise my GPA tremendously. However, considering how competitive the very few programs are in California, I worry that I have slim chances in being accepted into grad school. My cummulative GPA is only a 3.1, and this will be the highest it can go, as I have calculated. My GPA at my cal-state University is a 3.9 and I am hoping that this will help me somewhat when being considered for grad schools. I'd like to stay in California and this is very important for me because I basically only have my sister for family and my 2 nephews who mean the world to me. That being said, I plan on applying to Master's programs for SLP at Cal state Fullerton, University of Redlands, Loma Linda, Cal state Long-Beach, and Cal baptist. Because my Bachelor's degree is in Sociology and not Speech Pathology, I understand that it will take me longer than others to complete my Master's degree. I want to weigh my options in getting into programs in California and also see which programs I will have a chance in getting accepted to, and also enjoy in the sense of being able to be satisfactorily prepared for the career. Do any of you have an undergrad degree in a different field and are currently in grad school for SLP or are soon applying? Any information/guidance would be greatly appreciated! As of now, Redlands University sounds appealing due to what I have heard about there faculty/program and also considering that the program would only take me about 2 1/2 years as opposed to at least 3. Loma Linda University is another school that I am very interested in because I have heard great things about the program and also their medical facility. The only issue is how expensive these 2 programs will cost. I am a waitress and live on my own so I will have to take out loans to pay for school, and I get worried thinking about being in so much debt. Sorry for the long post! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! 😅
  2. I've been accepted into two good schools. NYU : Masters in Biotechnology & Entrepreneurship at the Tandon School of Engineering Brown University: Masters in Biotechnology. I'm facing a very difficult time deciding between these two. I am also going to be an international student. Any advice on this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hi! I wanted to make this forum in hopes someone has experience/information about the SLP graduate program at Worcester state? I've been accepted there and to UNH. Being from MASS, my cheaper and more realistic option is Worcester. So, most likely, I will be accepting there if I get rejected from my other schools. Anyways, I haven't heard THE BEST things about WSU... However, I'm SURE not everyone's experience has been negative... Please post and let me know any information you have about information and experiences from Worcester!! Thank you!

    UIC MHA Grad Program

    Hi there, Have any UIC MHA applicants received notice of acceptance or denial? Also curious to hear plans for tuition. i.e. assistantship, grants, scholarships, etc. Thanks for you time.
  5. Hi everyone, I am applying to Master of Social Work programs. I also want to be able to find some outside scholarships, in case I am not offered any scholarships. Where are you applying for outside scholarships? The only one I can really think of is the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. Any advice and help is greatly appreciated!
  6. Hey all, Anyone willing to review the first draft of my SoP? I will send you a message of my SOP text. This for Masters in Human Computer Interaction and Design. Cheers,
  7. Does anyone know whether the order of programs chosen (i.e. first choice and second choice) are reviewed separately for the Sciences Po graduate program? My first choice is the Dual degree Programme with Columbia's SIPA (School of International and Public affairs) in International Public Management + a Human Rights degree from Sciences Po PSIA. My second choice is the Human Rights and Humanitarian Action degree at Sciences Po. In the application, they list both personal statements one on top of the other. I had originally thought there would only be one statement needed. So now I'm thinking I would use the same bulk of my personal statement for each and change details accordingly to the programmes. However, it seems quite glaring and obvious that it's a huge copy and paste and i'm afraid that in comparison admissions may perceive this as lazy and not original enough. But would both be considered simultaneously or only review one after the other (like at LSE) if I don't get placed in the degree of my first choice? Thoughts? I spent an enormous time crafting this personal statement into a narrative and I am quite nervous in having to rearrange and finding a novel way of putting all this info into a concise format again. PS: I've also applied to a one year master's program at LSE for International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies and I've made a typo - despite my proofreading committee - of writing 'bear' instead of 'bare' and I'm cringing extremely hard. It's only one word amid 1000, but what are the chances of the admissions picking this up and looking down at this error? Many thanks!
  8. I am really confused in selecting a specialization course for my graduate program. What is the difference between a M.S. Biomedical engineering and selecting any specialization courses. Can i do specialization course by selecting M.S biomedical engineering? Please help me with the doubt...
  9. Hi All, I am working as an engineer in India. I want to study neuroscience and electronics (or more specifically about Brain-Computer Interfaces using neural implants). I have checked out some programs in universities and found this topic under neural engineering. However, I need some guidance in choosing specific programs/universities which would be suitable considering my profile. My Profile - CGPA (undergrad) - 7.93/10 (IIIT-Bhubaneswar, India) GRE - 321 (2013) TOEFL - 106 (2013) Planning on attempting again this year for fresh scores Additional Courses - PG Diploma in VLSI (CDAC, Pune, India) Work Experience - RTL Design and Verification Engineer, Wipro Technologies, India (1+ year(s) currently) Publications - 2 IEEE International Conferences organised in India (One in embedded, signal processing and one in Power Systems, Control Systems) I am thinking of taking the GRE again but I am hopeful that the old score would do. Please advise regarding that as well. If anyone here is already in similar course I would appreciate some tips on what the admission committee might be looking for. I am not confident that my profile fits the requirements for the program/field I intend to apply for. I am also mulling over doing a masters in microelectronics first and then going for neural engineering later in Ph.D but I fear this route may restrict my chances of getting into Ph.D. programs in neural engineering.
  10. hi all, I have been searching for applicants to Uni of Cincinnati , Pathobiology &molecular medicine Phd program.Currently i am on their wait list.I really want to have some information if any body knows anything about it.
  11. Hi- I really want to get my graduate degree from a respected, accredited (both the school and the program are accredited) online program in Public Health, Human Movement, Exercise Physiology, Health Promotion, etc. I have worked in nursing for the first 30 years of my working life and then obtained several certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength & Conditioning Association, and the American Council on Exercise. I had a private studio after I left nursing, but wanted to use the experience and the 12 years I had of nursing education. I combined the 2 professions, if you will, and targeted people with disabilities tap into the many benefits of a well-rounded and safe exercise and nutrition program. Does anybody know of any liberal or state school that is not too expensive like ATSU that has an online program in any of these areas? Since this will be my 3rd career, I am thinking I would like to finish my working years either as a teacher, or a manager of a state health program, school health educator, or a person in charge of developing and implementing programs for grade school kids, seniors, high schoolers, or anybody in between.

    Hi guys, What do you think about my profile? I have this: GRE: math:640 verbal:320 GPA:3.63 International student publications: 3 (one as a first author, Veterinary Parasitology, Genome Research and Science) experience: 3 years as a Research Assistant at TSRI further education: MS with honors in Microbiology, Drug discovery certificate at UCSD (grades A's) Graduate courses at TRSI (grades: A's) 4 years in a row rejected by many universities (Life sciences programs) even the ones that are not even ranked. Could you give me any advice on how to proceed this year? I will not take the GRE revised, other than GRE suggestion is very welcome, someone with better luck and similar scores? Thanks
