    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.
  5. Hi Grad Cafe. I'm exploring the possibility of applying to a Masters in International Relations program after being out of school for a bit. I've been looking at Tufts' Fletcher School's MALD and Georgetown's M.S. in Foreign Service as ideal programs for my career goals. However, I was looking at how both schools have a foreign language proficiency. I was a language minor in college with three years of Japanese study. I still study it lightly but I am wondering about how intensive the examinations are, particularly the oral examinations, so I can figure out a study regime for preparation if I decide to pursue applying next cycle. Does anyone have any familiarity with Georgetown's School of Foreign Service and/or Tufts' Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy language proficiency components in terms of proficiency level and how it might relate to the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)? At the end of my minor, I was nearly at JLPT N3 level and am wondering if that places me around what they are looking for or if I need to intensify my studying.
  6. Hi all, I am looking to hear from those of you who have attended any of these schools for SLP grad school. Idaho state, university of Montana, BYU, University of Northern Colorado, Wyoming, Washington State, and Easter Washington University. Some question I have specifically: 1. Do a lot of students receive funding? I will by an out of state resident and some of the schools listed don't offer to WGRP, so I will have to pay out of state tuition. I am wondering how likely it is to get it waived or get funding to help with the cost? I have competitive application: 3.98 GPA, 152 V 158 Q, 4.0 AW. 2. What are your experiences with the clinic? Do you feel like you are learning within the clinic and are becoming ready to be working on your own? 3. What is the major focus at your school? Thanks for all your help! I greatly appreciate it!
  7. Hello all! I just recently got accepted into a doctoral program (w/ funding *thank god*) and I am endlessly thinking about what I should do for a project. I have been forcing myself not to think about projects and the stuff that comes with that, but I can't help but want to plan stuff out way ahead of time. I originally wanted to focus on doing work in Spanish-speaking countries thus I took Spanish courses as an undergrad, but I find myself drawn more towards Japan. I've always had a strong appreciation for Japanese culture, but I have no exposure to the language. Is it typical to learn an entirely different foreign language during the first 2 or 3 years of a doctoral program? From what I hear is that I should be able to do so through coursework, workshops, etc but I also hear that Japanese is incredibly difficult for native English speakers. Plus, my program expects me to have at least an intermediate proficiency in a foreign language before the end of my third year. Any info you can offer definitely helps.
  8. Hello there! I'm an out-of-field student (majored in History) who is looking to apply to grad school for SLP for Fall 2019! I'm currently looking at the following schools: San Jose State University CSU East Bay UT Dallas Northern Arizona University Marquette University Montclair State University Grand Valley State University University of the Pacific University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign Here are my stats: 3.97 GPA, Currently taking prerequisite classes and will have 2 by application, 161V/160Q/4.5W. I was a teaching intern at a literacy/creative writing nonprofit, worked at my college's writing center for 3 years, worked with elderly people at a safe/affordable housing nonprofit, was an AmeriCorps college access counselor for low-income high school students of color, and currently work at a speech therapy private practice with preschoolers. I'm also certified as a Registered Behavior Technician and hope to soon start doing ABA therapy at my current job. Is there anything else I can do to improve my application? What are my chances for getting into the schools above? Thanks!
  9. Hello everyone, I am kinda freaking out right now because idk if I will get accepted into an SLP Master's Program. I know that it's a very competitive field and I don't have the best statuses. Here are my stats, Overall GPA 3.3, Major GPA 3.5, GRE: 139V 142Q 3.0AW (I know its bad Dx). I am planning to retake the GRE one more time before August and hoping to get in the 150's (I've been using Magoosh and it's been helping. The practice tests say I would probably score 145-150, but I still have a month til my test). I currently live in Nevada and there's only one Master's program here. I am currently looking at these schools: Old Dominion, Hampton University, distance programs such as Nova and NYU Steinfield, Louisiana State University, Arizona State University, etc. If you applied or was accepted can you tell me how you like it and if I have a chance of being accepted. Thank you everyone~
  10. 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!

    Grad school tuition question

    All schools seem to advertise their tuition as [insert amount here] per year. So, if a school advertises its tuition as $10,000/year, is that for two semesters or three? If it’s for two semesters, would tuition for three semesters (a real year) actually be $15,000? In addition to this, if a grad program is 5 consecutive semesters, then that’s only 18 months, so on a calendar, just a year and a half? This is relevant to room and board expenses. Paying for 19 months of room and board is way different than 24.
  12. Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone has heard anything from Jackson State Universtiy? Applications were due at the beginning of March. I've yet to hear anything, but I saw someone posted in the admission results that they got accepted into the program already. Thank you!
  13. Hi! I have been accepted to LIU Post, Hofstra, and St. John's for the speech language pathology graduate programs. I'm having trouble deciding on which school I would like to attend. I'm hoping someone could give me some input or insight on each program to help me make my decision? If anyone knows anything about the SLP programs at any of these three schools, please comment and let me know! Thank you!
  14. 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
  15. I was recently surprised to learn that many universities with FLAS funding open applications to graduate students from other universities. For example, a friend of mine who is a Georgetown grad student got FLAS funding from the University of Michigan to do a summer program in Brazil. I think that the University of Michigan gave her the scholarship because they did not receive enough applications from their own students. My question is if anyone has heard of people applying for FLAS funding from third party universities during the academic year. I would like to study a critical language at an area studies program that does not receive and I was wondering if I could apply for the funding at other universities.
  16. 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?
  17. Hi! I was wondering if there was any way to take post-bacc classes even though I already have a Bachelor's in CSD. I am trying to repeat some classes that I received lower grades in and I was wondering if there is any way in doing so even though I have already graduated. Has anyone had an experience with this?
  18. The thread about languages for a Victorianist got me thinking about my own language test. Has anyone ever heard of fulfilling the language requirement by using American Sign Language? I know some, as a good friend of mine is deaf, and it's related to my research area, which is disability studies (20th Century American lit). Thoughts?? I am not "fluent" in sign language but I could get there pretty quickly with tutoring from my friend. I think I could become competent in it a lot faster than I could in German, which I skated through in undergrad, and which is only relevant to my field to the extent that I could read about Hitler's eugenics program. (Ugh.) Thanks!
  19. Hi, everyone! Congratulations on all of the acceptances this round - I am so happy for all of you who had success and sending positive vibes to those who are trying to figure out next steps. I couldn't find this info anywhere on the thread, so apologies if I'm being redundant, but I have noticed some other questions about language training and am hoping to get an opinion on this. I speak Polish (intermediate) and Romanian (heritage speaker but I can't read or write), but these languages are not relevant to my area of interest (19th century British lit & women writers in this period). In my MA program at CU Boulder I need to pass a language exam in the language of my choosing, and I definitely want to do something that would be relevant to my area of interest. If I'm a Victorianist and primarily interested in women writers, does anyone have any recommendations for language? I'm not sure if I should study German since I have some interest in Marxist criticism, or if I should study Latin just to have a solid base if I go back to any EM texts (I could see myself doing that since I used to want to focus on EM and have a lot of experience in that time period). Another question: how relevant is the language you choose? Could I theoretically take the MA language exam in Polish, just because of my background and to get it out of the way quickly, without it hurting my chances of getting into a PhD program in a few years? I don't want to continue with a language that isn't relevant to me, but at the same time, not sure what language I should study instead. I am definitely open to studying Latin or German, I'm just not sure how helpful it would actually end up being. If you're a Victorianist or doing 18th/19th century Brit Lit, I would love to hear about your experience with language and what was recommended to you in either your MA or PhD program. I really don't see myself using lit or criticism using another language (at least at this point), so I'm just at a loss. Thanks in advance

    April 15 resolution

    I was just accepted into a graduate program that follows the april 15th resolution, what exactly does this mean? If I accept this offer then get off the waitlist at a preferred school does this mean I am not allowed to rescind my acceptance or just ask their permission? The april 15th resolution states: "Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this Resolution. In those instances in which a student accepts an offer before April 15 and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15. However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student not to accept another offer without first obtaining a written release from the institution to which a commitment has been made. Similarly, an offer by an institution after April 15 is conditional on presentation by the student of the written release from any previously accepted offer. It is further agreed by the institutions and organizations subscribing to the above Resolution that a copy of this Resolution or a link to the URL should accompany every scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, and assistantship offer." Thanks in advance!

    MGHIHP Speech Path?

    Hi everyone! Like many of you, I'm having a really hard time making a decision. MGH was originally my top choice. I have always been really impressed by its clinical affiliations, on campus clinic, and of course its amazing reputation. However, I noticed that MGH requires about 20 more credits than the other schools and requires an extra semester of classes. Many of its semesters also require 6 or 7 classes as opposed to 3 like many of the other schools do. I wanted to know if you enjoyed your experience, and whether you found the work load to be overwhelming. Did you find these extra classes to be beneficial in your placements? I have heard some stories of other girls in the program who were mentally and emotionally drained by MGH's demanding workload. Although I love MGH, I can't help but wonder whether I would be slightly less stressed out at another program in Boston. If anyone is currently at MGH or went to MGH or had a friend at MGH, I was wondering what your opinion on this was. Is the workload crazy? Is it manageable? Did you like it? Thank you so much in advance!!

    Which language should I study?

    Hi all! I am a first-year student studying art history, and a requirement of my university's program is that I study two different languages. I am planning on taking a course this summer so I can put lots of focus into it. I am currently taking French, and am between taking either Italian or German this summer. I am interested in going to graduate school as well (and know that a lot of schools require reading knowledge of certain languages) and am most interested in the Renaissance and Baroque eras as of yet, so that's why I am focusing on Italian and German. I'm split because on one hand I have been told Italian will be much easier for me since I know French (I am at B2 level if that helps), and since I am more interested in the Renaissance I thought it might be better? I might also want to apply to the Venice Guggenheim internship in the future, and a requirement is that you know some Italian. However, I have personally been really interested in German culture/language for a while and have picked up a little bit. Someone suggested that I take German in the summer because it's harder and I'll have more time to focus on it, and Italian I can take another time because it'll be easier for me to pick up? Any suggestions or experience in how either or both of the languages helped in grad school/the art field/jobs in the non-art field would be amazing and appreciated! Or any tips on studying those languages!

    Old/Norman French documents

    Hi! I'm a student of English Studies from Poland and this year I'm writing my BA dissertation on "The Influence of the Norman Invasion on English Language". In the 1st chapter I wanted to present how Old English and Norman French looked like before the invasion but I lack any information on the latter. If you could direct me to some websites, books, or articles on the topic, I would appreciate it very much. These may include linguistic records of the language of Normans and the language before the Vikings had settled in Normandy. Thanks in advance! PS. Perhaps some of you are able to translate the above into French. If you could, I would post this on some French speaking blogs and maybe receive some feedback there as well.
