Hi everyone! I am wondering what I should purchase before I attend graduate school in the fall. Attire: I live in Texas and it does get extremely hot here most of the year. Currently I work at a very laid back clinic- most of the therapists wear jeans/sandals. I am wondering if I should invest in a couple pairs of nice slacks and purchase more business casual clothes.. or maybe wait it out and see if my school has a specific dress code (I haven't heard much from my program yet). School supplies: I have a MacBook Pro and I was thinking about getting binders and spirals for note taking. Do most students bring computers or take notes by hand? I also was thinking about getting a cross body bag instead of a backpack. Any other must have supplies that I would need as an slp grad student? ? Therapy Materials: I have been an slpa for 2+ years and I have so many games and materials that I have made and purchased. Would it be worthwhile to take some of these things with me, or wait and see what my clinic has to offer? Any help/input would be awesome. I am moving 8 hours away so I want to be prepared and make sure I don't leave anything behind:)
Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone who's been in grad school has any recommendations for a planner or agenda that worked really well for them? I used a Day Designer planner from Target last year and loved it! The to-do lists on the side were helpful, along with the fact that it wasn't set up with certain hours. However, I'm also open to other suggestions. What would you recommend?
Hey everyone! I've been trying to decide whether to rent or buy my textbooks. This upcoming fall will be my first year in grad school and I'm taking three intro classes (Epi, Biostats, and Intro to Healthcare). My concentration is health promotions, but I am interested in switching it to epidemiology. I'm still in the process of getting a feel of what I want to do as part of me would love to research, but the other part of me wants to open a non-profit based on what I've learned in health promotions. Should I buy all books related to health promotions and epidemiology and rent all other books related to specific concentrations? My booklist is available, should I email my professors regarding the syllabus?
So, now that I've been accepted at a PhD program and hope to start in the fall, I'm wondering if anyone out there has a good budget that they created for living on their PhD stipend. I've received what seems like a generous stipend ($25,900 that includes an extra 5 year scholarship). My husband is also starting his PhD and we're waiting to hear about his funding, but hopefully we'll try to make it work with both of our stipends. What worked for you? How much did/do you budget for rent, food, transportation, etc? Any tricks to keeping expenses down?
