    Fall 2019 Applicants

    Hi guys. I've seen people in other areas begin threads for the Fall 2019 applicants, so I figured I would start the Classics thread. I'm graduating in May and working on applying to a large variety of Masters and Ph.D programs related to Classical Archaeology.
  2. I have applied to five schools and have only heard from one school. Idaho State University- waitlisted. Is anyone else in a similar situation? 😕

    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?
  4. Like many others have done, I'm a current first year grad student! Feel free to ask any questions from applying to grad school itself! We're all in this together and I remember how rough the application process was!
  5. Has anyone heard from Lamar University, the university of Texas rio Grande Valley, or Kingsville for Fall 2019? I’m so anxious and worried about not getting in anywhere! Someone please help ease my nerves 😭 I just want know if they’ve started sending interview invitations or acceptances already. Any opinions on whether I have a shot or not? Cumalitive GPA: 3.4 Major GPA: 3.4 GRE: average! I’m bilingual (spanish and English) with lots of research experience.
  6. Hi everyone! I recently have been accepted to my top choice clinical psychology PhD program (yay!!!), and my POI informed me over the phone that a formal email would follow within the next week. Is this normally the case? I guess I'm just in such shock, I want to see my offer written out on paper. This has been a long road for me, so I'm so excited to be accepted into my top program. Thank you all in advance!

    Messenger Bag Recommendations?

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for a nice messenger bag, preferably brown leather, to use for graduate school. I'm more interest in durability than affordability right now (although anything over $200 is tooooo much). Does anybody have any recommendations/bags they love/bags they hate? Thank you!
  8. Hello! Does anyone know anything about Rutgers American studies program? I can't find much information on their webpage and there seems to be very few entries on the results page... Is this a strong program? Is the funding good (the DGS never wrote me back when I asked what it entailed)? Also, why would there be so few entires in the results page?

    cost of living grant?

    hi all. I've been admitted to a PhD program and I'm getting an ok stipend, but relative to the city I'm moving to I'll barely be making it by. Do cost of living scholarships even exist? Are there things that I can apply for to subsidize cost of living? FYI I'm on a student visa
  11. I am from California. I got into Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) for Social Work which is #2 in the country for Social Work. I also got into a Cal State. I want to get licensed in CA and work in California after graduation. Also WashU is maybe 10k more than the Cal State. Will it be worth it to attend a high ranked MSW program or should I attend a school in the state in which I want to work and practice? I want to get my LCSW after I graduate.

    Preparing for Clinical PhD Interview

    So it looks like a few people have heard some positive news from grad schools about upcoming interviews starting next month. How is everyone preparing? I know that I did some initial preparation when I was completing my applications, but I'm not too sure where to go from here. Every POI has published material, ongoing grants and recently completed work, lab websites/department biographies... But what is interview day/weekend really about and what kinds of questions should we be preparing for and what questions should we be asking as we are on these interviews? Happy Holidays!

  14. Hello, I wanted to see what schools people recommend for graduate program in speech language pathology that look at more than just GPA and GRE. MY GPA is not competitive. My GRE scores are very low. I may retake them. I have a lot of experience. This round I applied to: NAU- summers program NOVA Chapman University Idaho State University Eastern New Mexico University .

    Do I have a chance?

    I am going to be *that* person and seek opinions about whether my scores are good enough for graduate school admission. I am applying to 13 schools (yes, I know that's a lot. But I am anxious because of my low GPA compared to the average accepted GPA). uGPA: 3.43/4.00 CSD GPA: 3.75/4.00 Last-60 GPA: 3.80/4.00 GRE: 157 V, 154 Q, 4.5 AW I am a CS&D major with an Education minor. I have been involved in 2 research labs during undergrad; one for three semesters studying bilingual language acquisition and language development and the other studing Parkinson's Disease using rat models. I currently serve on the executive board of NSSLHA as the Secretary. I was a Camp Counselor at an overnight summer camp for kiddos on the autism spectrum. I am working as a conversation volunteer in our schools speech and language clinic. I also am enrolled in a service-learning course as a mentor for children in our public school district who experience homelessness. Finally, I have been an RA for our dorms for the past 2 years. I think I have a diverse amount of leadership and research experiences which could help that lower GPA. (Also, being a male in the field, many of my colleagues have told me I shouldn't worry about not getting in. Personally, I don't buy that because programs are trying to get the best applicants no matter what, right?) I know Letters of recommendation are important as well and two of my three professors are revered as "innovative" in their respected research fields so hopefully their opinions may help. I also know them pretty well, so it's not like I asked strangers for the sake of them just looking good to schools. My letter of intent has been looked over by many sets of eyes and will continue to be looked over. I've been told it sounds good by colleagues who have been through the application process. (I only mention these things because I know ad comm's look at the applicant holistically) As you can tell by my sheer number of schools, I am pretty anxious about getting in. CS&D has become my passion since finding the major and it would be a blow if I couldn't get in. Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from people going through their applications too!
  16. Should I use the professional transcript entry option if I have one undergraduate transcript, or should I just manually enter in my grades? The professional transcript entry option is $65 for three transcripts, and I only have one to enter.
  17. Hello, I am applying to graduate programs in biology this year. I have almost four years of post-graduate research experience in top-tier institutions and labs, and am a co-author on 5 peer-reviewed articles, 3 of which are in Science/Cell/Nature. I have good GRE scores. I think I would make a strong applicant apart from the glaring issue of my undergrad GPA (3.1). Unfortunately I experienced domestic violence and medical issues towards the end of high school up till sophomore year of college, which were partially resolved with professional help and positive changes that my family and I have made. I am really agonizing over whether this is appropriate to mention in an SoP. I haven't dove into the details at all so far, just said something along the lines of "I've experienced serious personal and medical issues at the time and persevered through them and my grades drastically improved in the last two years..." Is this sufficient? I am sure there are a lot of stories similar to mine, particularly from folks who dealt with mental health challenges and that's perhaps even harder to address. I would love to hear how everyone's tackling gaps in their application due to these reasons, and I hope you all are doing better now.
  18. hi! I wanted to ask if anyone knows of any SLP grad schools that superscore (which is where your best scores in each section of the GRE are taken). I took my GRE twice. On the second round of it, I did better in writing, but worse on the verbal and quan sections than my first one! If anyone has any schools on the top of their head that super score, please let me know!
  19. Currently, I'm a Junior at Texas A&M-Commerce, and will be applying for graduate school in December 2018. I'm a psychology major with an overall GPA of 3.9 and a major GPA of 4.0, with experience in independent study, research, and data analysis. I expect to graduate summa cum laude and receive good letters of recommendation from the professors with whom I've conducted research. However, I doubt that I will be able to achieve a high or even average score on the GRE. On all of the practice tests I've taken so far, I've done well in the verbal and written areas (156-160 on the verbal, and 5.0 on the written), but I've performed poorly on all the quantitative sections, receiving scores that ranged from 120-110. I know that with time and practice, I can improve my quantitative scores, but I am still unsure about my chances of getting into UT Southwestern's Clinical Psychology PhD program. Do any of you think that I could have a chance of getting an interview, or do you think I have better chances applying elsewhere?

    CSUDH MSW 2018

    Hello, I wanted to create a place for all of us to chat and compare our stats. Also, to congratulate each other when some of us get in and people to plan a second try who don't. Good luck to everyone, and I hope we all hear back soon!
  21. 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!!!
  22. I'm going to be applying for a Masters Course at several universities (UK and the US) by the end of this year. I will be taking a recommendation letter from a professor at my current institute of study. The issue is that he would know me only for 4-6 months when he writes the letter for me. How is that looked upon by an admissions officer? Does that reduce the credibility of my LOR? I don't want my chances of getting admitted to become low because of this. Do you all know by personal experience or friends whether students have been admitted in top universities even though their letters of recommendation were written by professors who knew them for a really short period of time? Thank you.
  23. Hi, Name's Bocephus, I hope to become an SLP. I'm an undergraduate senior not majoring in something SLP related. I am volunteering at a speech lab, but the lab has me doing office tasks rather than actual research. I am worried about leaving the lab because I do not want to hurt my chances for grad school. Is it worth it to stay even if I'm not doing any actual research? How much do schools care about research experience? Just some context, I have 3 semesters worth of previous research experience, two semesters with a social psychology lab and one semester at an ABA lab. Once I graduate I plan to take a year to go back to the ABA lab and complete whatever prereques I need for grad school. I would have more xp, but I realized late in my undergrad that I wanted to pursue speech.

    Best Psyd Schools

    Hi there, I'm looking to apply to PsyD (not PhD) programs this coming fall and was wondering if anyone here had a good idea of which ones have the best reputations. I know to find APA accredited schools, but beyond that, it is hard to tell which are most favorably viewed by leaders in the field. Thanks!
  25. Hi everyone, just my second post in about 3 years, but I am faced with a dilemma. I recently earned my MA in history. For whatever its worth this particular college, per US World and News Report, is ranked #35 in history graduate programs (I know I know for PhDs). My final GPA= 3.85, and while I did not get straight As, professors (from my MA college and outside) told me I had written a "unique" thesis. Since filing my thesis, I've done some part time tutoring and most importantly, a respected professor hired me as a research assistant for his book. One benefit to this is that this professor has served on numerous admissions committees/has been the chair of the dept, so he has looked over numerous drafts of my personal statement/statement of purpose. HERE'S THE POINT: My GRE scores were mediocre. 154 v/139q/4.5 writing. Considering all that information I provided above, how much will this hurt my chances for history PhD programs? I've plunged hundreds of dollars into tutoring (yeah I know...but I want this) and prep material and while I'm only a couple weeks into it, I seem to be doing worst in the verbal section. I know this is an age old excuse but standardized tests just bring out the worst in me. Should I chance it with these scores? I signed up for a Sept. test.. IMPORTANT INFO: i'm not looking to apply to Harvard or anything. But I'm looking at some decent to ok- ranked history programs such as: North Carolina, University of Washington, University of California Santa Cruz, UT Austin, NYU, University of Illinois... I've been freaking out about this all summer. Please someone bring some perspective to this....
