  1. HEY:) I am thinking of accepting my MGH offer and was wondering if anyone here already knows that they are going? Did you find housing, expenses and such? I'd love to hear what you came up with! (Maybe be roommates?:)) Would love to have a chat with you! Inbal
  2. Thinking of going to MGH for your MS SLP? Join the FB group! Lookup: MGH MS SLP class of 2021 Just a way for us all to connect and bounce ideas, find roommates, etc.
  3. Hi All! I'm pretty torn between grad schools right now and was hoping that some of you could possibly provide me with your opinions. I've been accepted to Columbia University, Northeastern University, Boston University and waitlisted to MGH. I am leaning towards medical speech pathology, so a big factor in my decision are the surrounding hospitals. I am originally from NY so I think right now the major issue is deciding what city I want to pursue my Masters in. I've always loved Boston but I'm not sure if starting this chapter in an unfamiliar setting is the best choice. If there are any graduate students who are in these programs or simply if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!!
  4. I am deciding between USF, UNC Chapel Hill, MGH and NYMC. USF is by far the cheapest (by a landslide), but all of their classes are 3 hour evening classes, and I don't know how I feel about this. I don't think you learn as well this way. I'm interested in the medical aspect, but every source has said that which school you go to doesn't matter. The cost is important to me because I'm relying on loans and outside scholarships for living expenses, travel expenses, etc. I work but I only make like $11/hour right now. What do you think about having all evening classes? Do you know how common this is among other programs? The purpose is so that you are free during the day for clinicals. USF has over 200 clinical placement sites! Does anyone have any first hand experience about the other programs? If there are any great advantages? Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post!!
  5. Has anyone heard from MGH yet? I know from past gradcafe posts that they give you a portal, which is eventually how most people find their admissions decision. Therefore has anyone been notified by them to open/create a portal? Thank you!
  6. Hi Guys, I was accepted to MGH. I was just wondering if anyone had any off campus housing recommendations in the Boston area, not too far from campus? I'd like something within walking distance. I won't be driving.
  7. Hello, I would like this to be a forum for you as an applicant, current student, or alumni of any Boston speech-language pathology programs to post your insight, experience, knowledge or advice comparing the schools. I know I am not the only one who applied to more than one school in the Boston area so I would like help on choosing which one to attend! (I have been accepted to MGH and Northeastern) but this can be for all 4 programs! Some questions include.. Why did you choose X program What kind of training / orientation is there prior to beginning clinic? How are clients paired with students? Do we decide on clinical placement site? Surviving without car? How are classes/workload? challenging but possible? Work life balance? Can you still enjoy boston? Describe typical day?? Do you feel comfortable with supervisors? Asking for help? Classmate interaction?
  8. 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!!
  9. Hello!In January I was accepted into Washington University in St. Louis, and in the last weeks I was accepted into MGH IHP in Boston, and Murphy Deming college in Virginia . I am having a lot of trouble deciding between the 3. WashU- I truly can see myself here. I appreciate all of the connections, the low price of living, and that student health insurance is included in tuition. Definitely would push me to grow, as it would be a step outside of what I'm used to, living in the city. Top ranked school might give me more opportunities finding a job after graduating. Facilities were not as nice and updated as the others. Very welcoming faculty members. Murphy Deming- I love the smaller class size and the inter professional design. Coming from Wyoming, I know I would feel more in my comfort zone living in rural Fishersville, VA. Facilities much more impressive than WashU. Low price of living.MGH- I feel this school is a good mix between WashU and Murphy Deming. The facilities are amazing, inter professional design, and I felt the school has many valuable connections. However, the price of living is crazy! Can anyone offer their opinion on the schools?
  10. I just wanted to get this thread started in case any of us had questions! I'm also unable to attend the Welcome Day on April 9th, so I wanted to see what everyone had to say about it! Congratulations to everyone accepted! SUPER excited for this one.
  11. Hi everyone! I have been accepted into NY Medical College and MGH for graduate school. I know I have a while to decide, but I am already feeling very torn about choosing between these two. I am very interested in medical speech language pathology, therefore I applied to programs that had more of a medical focus. However each school has their pros and cons. I was wondering if anyone is in the same boat or knows anyone who has been to 1 program or the other? Any advice would be appreciated. NYMC Pros: --Strong coursework, medical focus --Medical placements --Cadaver lab for anatomy --Graduate housing provided on campus --TSSLD certification (for working in schools) included in Master's curriculum --Connections around NYC --Close to home (I live on long island) Cons: --More expensive --72 credits in 5 semesters (MGH does it in 6 semesters) MGH Pros: --High ranked graduate school and well known --Received funding to the program --Adult neurogenic concentration --Connections around Boston --Medical based Cons: --Far from home (4 and 1/2 hours) --No housing provided --Program would require an additional summer --Would need to get certified in NY after graduation because I ultimately see myself in NY in the future
