  1. 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 ❤️

    MPH Admissions

    Hey all, Thank you in advance for the advice. I am asking a question for my girlfriend. She is applying to MPH programs with a low GPA 3.2 and ok gre scores. 152Q and 159V. She has 5 years of international work experience peace corps, ESL teaching, research in health. What are her chances of getting into Harvard, Columbia, Hopkins, or Yale for their MPH programs??? Also, I am having trouble finding a thread for this year's MPH applicant statistics so feel free to post your stats in the comments: GPA 3.2 GRE: 152Q 159V other relevant factors:
  3. Hello everyone, I am unapologetically paranoid about graduate school admissions. My undergraduate grades fluctuated quite a bit. I attended a community college for two years receiving a 3.4 GPA. I then transferred to a top 75 liberal arts college where I received a 3.2 GPA. My total undergraduate GPA works out to be a 3.3 which is not very good for more competitive programs in international development/public policy. I was hoping that I could get your feelings on my chances at admissions at Columbia SIPA and John's Hopkins SIAS. Other things to consider. I served in the Peace Corps in Africa for two years Taught in Asia for 1.5 years. Conducting research in Central America from July 2017-July 2018 I won and declined a Fulbright ETA grant. In total, I will have 4.5 years of international work experience before my program begins. My brother is a current undergraduate student at Hopkins and is researching at SIAS. I think that I will have rock solid letters of recommendation from undergraduate professors. I completed three internships during my undergrad and work 20+ hours per week. Tell me what you think.
  4. Hey Everyone, I need some realistic input of my chances of getting into a speech pathology (slp) program!

  5. I am trying to gauge admissions outcomes for the upcoming admissions cycle for MA programs in international development and affairs. If you could, please include the following information in your response: GPA: GRE (Verbal/Math/Writing) Applied: Accepted: Rejected: Waitlist: description of relevant work experience and other factors: Thank you!

  7. Hi, I was wondering if there any schools that anyone has gotten into that accepted a GPA between a 3.3-3.4? Was your GRE high? Any suggestions for me? I'll be applying next school year, but my advisor doesn't think I can retake anything to help my GPA (even though it have one C+ and one D). If not do you have suggestions on what I could do with my undergrad in SLPA? Thanks for your help!
  8. Hello! I am currently finishing my undergrad degree in biology and I have a few summer classes to finish with, but does anyone here know any postbacc online programs in new jersey that i could apply to for the fall that are fairly easy to get into? I have a pretty low gpa because I majored in biology but i was wondering if i do really well in the prereqs for SLP during my postbacc if I have a better chance of getting into a masters program?

    Applying with low GPA

    I'm doing a double major in Microbiology and Genetics and I have a 2.3 GPA. Even though my GPA is so low I want to go to grad school for Developmental & Reproductive Biology. I have had a lot of experience in research since I had multiple internships and jobs working at the veterinary school, zoos, genetics laboratories, etc. In addition, in all my laboratory courses I have passed with A's but in other courses like chemistry and math I have done poorly. I was wondering what are my real chances into getting into a school program even if I get a real high school in my GRE and have good recommendation letters. And if so, which schools do you recommend (similar programs).
