  1. Recent grad here awaiting my degree to post on my transcript so not a full-fledged ASHA member (yet). That said, in the spirit of full disclaimer: Yes, I am hoping to recuperate some of the cost spent on my textbooks... I tried re-selling them on Amazon, but no bites or even nibbles thus far... When did this get so complicated? Anyway, I'm going to try to figure out how to post the links to my individual seller account from Amazon. If anyone wanted to pick them up and pay me in person, I'm currently in the Koreatown area in Los Angeles, CA. If I still have the merchandize, I'd be happy to arrange a meet up at a local Starbucks or what have you... As sad as this sounds, this is my first post here, so I'm going to post this as a test. The info on the books to follow! =)
  2. Hi all, I am thinking about taking a graduate level class online through ENMU. I am currently on the waitlist and I'm hoping it will help me out. The director of the program said the one in the summer is 6-8 weeks long and moves quickly. I have all summer off bc I work for a school district. This should be perfect, right? I feel a little intimidated bc it's graduate level and fast paced. Has anyone taken a graduate level speech class like this online that is this short? Just looking for other ppls experience with this. Thank you!
  3. I was just rejected for the OGS and I'm feeling pretty down. I thought I was a good applicant. I had a fair bit of research experience, good GPA, and my proposed masters advisor even helped me with the research proposal (I haven't officially been accepted into a program yet).My average may have been holding me back (I think I had an 82% in my 3rd year and 84% in my final year). So I'm just wondering, what do the stats of the students who win it usually look like?
  4. Hello everyone, I am a rising senior studying at a small liberal arts college where I major in Physical Sciences with a focus in Chemistry. I hope to study total synthesis in graduate school and have started working towards that goal. I have taken p.chem, inorg, and organometallics. However, I have not taken Ochem. Now, here is the catch, I was the TA for the course and carried out tutorial classes with them. In the fall, I would be taking retrosynthesis course. I know it sounds odd. However, would it hurt my chance? ## I have 4.5/5 GPA, done 2 summer research projects. I have spent additional 4 semesters doing research. Next year, I am going to do a senior thesis (just took GRE Chem last week!) Thank you

    Fall 2018 Italian

    Hello everyone, surprisingly, there's no thread for Italian this year and I thought I create one. I applied for 4 PhD programs and still waiting for a reply. I had two interviews a few weeks ago but nothing since. Do you people want to share your experiences as well? Cheers, P. EDIT: Yes, I am freaking out and I have a bad feeling about this whole thing.

    University at Albany, SUNY

    Hey! Is anyone an incoming graduate student for University at Albany, SUNY?? I just accepted their offer to attend for Sociology in Fall 2018.
  7. Hey everyone! I got my first interview offer and I'm soooo excited!! Please feel free to post your interview offers, updates, and acceptances when they arrive! Optional info you may want to include in your post: What schools you applied to in California Schools you've received interview offers from and when they arrived Feedback on your interview and questions they asked you Any other info you want to add
  8. What better place to find people to share application anxiety with? I haven't seen another thread like this yet so here we go. Which programs are you applying to? Where are you from? What are your biggest concerns about applications? I'll start. I'm applying to a grand total of two schools (I'm obviously crazy) because I want to be on campus and I have to stay in VA. I'm looking at JMU and Longwood and honestly don't know what my chances are but I'm going to try to be optimistic. Figured I'd start applications early on CSDCAS but maaaan this process is waaay slower than I had anticipated! I'm so excited for grad school though!
  9. I've been wait listed at ENMU. I was just curious if anyone has been accepted off the wait list this year or in previous years??? I just want to know my chances.
  10. Hello! I've just recently been accepted to CSUEB (California State University Easty Bay) and SJSU (San Jose State University) for their masters programs in SLP. Originally, SJSU was my top choice because I heard that the school was better as a whole and because their SLP program is ranked higher nationally than CSUEB. That being said, I talked to a current student at SJSU who said that getting hospital externships there seemed to be more difficult. It is very important to me that I finish my masters with experience in private, school, and hospital settings. So, what is your experience at either of the schools? In your understanding, how hard is it to get hospital externships at either of the schools? Thank you! (PS. I'm local to the Bay Area and live between the two so commuting to either school won't be terribly difficult. Also the tuition at both schools is practically the same.)

    Cheaper MA vs. Higher Ranking MA

    Hello, Similar questions have been asked, but I wanted to give my particular example. I graduated from a Public University with a 3.55 GPA BS in Sociology with a History minor, in December. I am planning to pursue a PhD in History and am reasoning the best path forward. The head of the History Department at my alma mater recommended that I look in to a MA before pursuing a PhD, as I need to iron out my languages, some more research experience, and it would only serve to strengthen my overall admission chances into a strong PhD program. My two areas of interest are 20th Century German History and US Foreign Policy in in the 1960s. If my end goal is a PhD, then does the ranking of my MA matter all that much? My school's graduate program specializes in US History, but she said that my focus on Foreign Policy would allow for a reasonably easy transition into a German History PhD, along with better language skills. I can go here for my MA and accumulate a relatively small amount of debt, and the faculty is great. However, its not ranked super high. Alternatively, I could drop more money on a well known MA program and go into a PhD with substantially more debt. I would appreciate thoughts on the matter. Thanks! tldr; Cheap and convenient MA, or prestigious and expensive MA before PhD?

    George Washington

    I have been accepted into the Security Policy Studies masters program at GW. They have only offered me $4k a semester in aid and I need much more help than that to be able to attend. My loans will only cover about $20k a year. Does anyone know of the best way to approach this? Should I write them and ask about more funding opportunities? Can I appeal for more money?
  13. Hello, This is addressed to current and past students who have attended AND completed Eastern New Mexico's Masters of Communication Disorder's hybrid-program. If you have the same or similar questions please do not re-post question. If you have a different question addressed to this group feel free to add. Questions: What circumstances impacted your decision to attending ENMU? (i.e. family, affordability, distance, etc) How responsive are the faculty and the professors? If you had difficulty reaching them, what resources did you turn to? What was the most challenging aspect of the first semester? What were your thoughts on your practicum placements? If you were required to relocate, how far did you move? How do tests and finals work out? If you graduated, how prepared were you for your CF year and or your career as an SLP? Any other comments you may have on the program

    Kingston's CRMEP

    Hi, all. What are current thoughts on Kingston's CRMEP? I know that Kingston has been in a bit of financial trouble lately, and I have some doubts about the school overall due to this. Furthermore, Kingston's CRMEP is not ranked highly for continental philosophy programs—as opposed to Essex, Sussex, Warwick, etc.. Despite all that, CRMEP absolutely has the best faculty (Peter Osborne, Catherine Malabou, Howard Caygill, Peter Hallward, and Étienne Balibar) for my purposes compared to any English-speaking school I've seen in the US and internationally. I am tempted to pick an MA program for its faculty over its ranking, but I don't want to hurt my chances down the line when I apply to PhD programs. Anyway, what are thoughts generally on the benefit of attending "prestigious" MA programs, and does anyone know anything about CRMEP specifically that may help me make this decision? I appreciate any help you can give, and congratulations to everyone who has gotten or is getting acceptance letters around now.

    Graduate Open House

    Hi, I recently got accepted into Ph.D. program at the University of Rhode Island and received an invitation for the graduate open house. The event will be for 2 days. It's important because funding decisions will be made after the visit. Can anyone give some idea about what one can expect in such events and is there anything important I need to focus on? Thanks in advance.

    Choosing Between Schools Advice

    Hey guys! So I have been fortunate enough to have a choice in PhD programs to attend in the fall, but I'm a really indecisive person. This is a big decision, and I'm so worried about making the wrong choice and regretting it. I've basically narrowed it down to two schools, but don't know what should be the deciding factor to make my choice. The first school I really like how the program is set up and the location, but they don't have the exact research I was hoping for; although, they do have good research that I could see myself liking if I tried it. The second school has a ton of the research that is exactly what I'm interested in, but I don't really like the location and the way the program is structured. Should I make my decision based on the research or the area? I don't want to be stuck in an area for 6 years that I'm not comfortable with, but at the same time there is a chance I could like it since I've never been to an area like that. I also don't want to rule out the one school based on research because I'm sure there's other options that I would be ok with. One of the schools is considered a prestigious school, but I wasn't sure if that should affect my decision. Any help is appreciated!
  20. What are some of the stronger programs for American Intellectual History? Also, what is typically expected on a strong US History applicants CV? Thanks everyone!
  21. 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!
  22. Hi everyone! I recently got accepted to a few SLP programs and one of them is Rocky Mountain University of Health Professionals. It's a candidate program in Provo, Utah with a medical emphasis. I got a good impression from the faculty but it's one of the more expensive programs in the country. Has anybody heard about their SLP program or been accepted?

    Columbia MSW Fall 2018: Question

    Hey! I applied to Columbia for the MSW program and l sent my application in before the priority deadline (the deadline was December 1st). When l submitted it, l made sure everything was attached and it was sent as completed. But today l got an email saying that they never received my transcript, and that I'm not longer on priority but rolling admission? I was certain that l submitted everything, and now I might have to wait until March to get my answer! Here is my question: I got accepted into NYU with a 15,000 scholarship for the MSW program there. I have to decide for them by February 16th, with the deposit and everything! But if Columbia pushes me back..what should l do? I'm concerned that since I'm no longer with priority, that l lost my chances at getting a scholarship or any type of aid - which is how l was leaning towards knowing which to decide for. Has this ever happened to anyone? I know l uploaded and submitted the transcript but if they said they didn't get it...am l flipping out? Which school should l be leaning towards? Do I take my chances and go for Columbia but risk little aid or stick to NYU? Sorry for such a long post lol. I'm just really confused! thanks in advance for any help!
