Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and have been reading some insightful forums over the past few weeks. I was wondering if anyone is in the same position I am in. I didn't get accepted into programs, except for one but I couldn't make it work financially, and I'm looking for other ways to end up with a good career. I asked one school why I wasn't excepted and they said that my GPA and GRE scores were low. (overall GPA 3.06 and CSD GPA 3.11; GRE is 147 Verbal, 148 Quantitative, and 3.5 on AW) She suggested retaking the GRE and some of the classes I got a B in, but said it would be very expensive and hard to retake those classes. I've been debating on retaking those classes but I don't want it to be a waste of time and money if I end up not getting accepted again. I've been looking into other careers and I'm kinda interested in obtaining a Masters in Special Education. Has anybody thought of this route or has done this route before? The program I'm looking into offers initial certification in K-12 Sped as well as the Master's Degree. I would just like to know if I would have to take any prerequisites--I have contacted the director but have not heard back. And if I need to have a teacher certification before I apply to a program. Just want to know if somebody is going through this same ordeal. I am going to apply for SLP schools again but I also want to have a solid back-up plan in case I don't get accepted. I'm also going to obtain my certificate for SLPA and volunteer more than I did last time. Thoughts??
