  1. Has anyone participated in a study abroad program as an SLP graduate student that was related to your field? If so, did you go with your university or on your own? Did you feel you were able to contribute despite the language difference? I am especially interested in the Visions Global Empowerment organization that has an service trip to Ethiopia that focuses on deaf education and empowerment. https://www.visionsglobalempowerment.org/volunteer-program I would love to hear about others’ experiences.
  2. I am currently a Junior attending Florida Institute of Technology for their Forensic Psychology program. I also have a Pre-Law minor and the CAST certificate for child advocacy. I am studying abroad in the spring, so i was advised to take the GRE before i went so that i would have time in the summer before my senior year to re-take it if possible. Due to some confusion about who was paying for it (my parents or me) i now have two dates scheduled for the GRE. I will be taking it October 22nd and November 30th. I took a GRE review course offered by Kaplan over the summer and made HUGE improvements in my practice tests, but that course has since ended. I still have the review books and everything for it but i am wondering if anyone has tips for studying in the weeks before my testing date? The best i did on a practice test was 97th percentile in Verbal and 37th percentile in Quant i would LOVE to have above 50th percentile in quant since my verbal has been so high.
  3. Hey guys, I'm a masters student studying Chinese History. In particular, I am studying Manchu identity in the Qing dynasty. My goal is to continue on to the Ph.D level, and ultimately find a tenure-track job. I'm currently finishing up the third year of Chinese language classes and have an important decision to make this summer. This summer, I have been accepted to two language programs. The first being TUSA which is an almost fully funded two months immersive Mandarin program in Taiwan. The second being a one month Manchu language program in the US, aimed at getting scholars with no prior experience to document reading level. Unfortunately, the Manchu program has no funding, and in total will likely cost me 5000 dollars out of pocket ( including housing, transportation, and food). So far people have told me that Manchu language is such a rare skill, that having it on my C.V. will help make me highly competitive for top-notch Ph.D. programs. So my questions are which program should I choose? Does the benefit of learning Manchu outweigh a prestigious and fully funded Mandarin Program? Is Manchu language really the secret to acceptance at a top-tier program? I'd appreciate any advice you guys can give. '
  4. Hello, everyone!!! I am currently looking into my options for grad school. I would love to go back to school for SLP. My undergrad GPA is embarrassingly low (2.67..yeaaaah ouch.) but I have taken some courses since and I have almost a 3.5 from those courses. I am a US citizen but currently working in Japan. Before coming to Japan to teach English, I worked at an elementary school in the lifeskills classroom for 2 years. Along with that, I have several years experience working in nursing homes and in the hospital as a CNA. I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to do next. I will be in Japan for another year and a half but after that I either want to go to school in the US or in Australia. If I plan on going to school in the US I will apply to USU for their 2nd degree program so that I can raise my god-awful undergrad GPA. I would also need to take the GRE (which I have an irrational fear of!) My other option that I am considering is applying to a few Australian SLP programs. They do not require all of the pre-reqs or the GRE. My fear is that if I wait and apply to them next year and don't get accepted, I would have wasted time by not starting my 2nd bachelors degree program. Has anyone studied at the Australian schools for SLP? Does anyone have any advice?
  5. As a student want to know worth of doing MS from US.
  6. Hello. I'm currently a senior at an American university, pursuing two BAs (one in Geography, one in Urban Studies and Planning). I'm getting ready to apply to graduate school, and the more I think about, the more I realize Europe might be a strong option for me, particularly Germany or the UK. I want to get a Master's degree in Urban Planning or a related field, with a specific focus on commuter railroad administration. Essentially, I want to be an urban planner who specializes in public transportation. When it comes to infrastructure, Europe is just plain better in this regard (I live in a city with amazing public transit for America, and when I went to the UK I was deeply humbled), and I see a strong argument for studying under those who have designed systems much better than most of my own country. Plus, Europe is so interconnected that I could explore the systems in many countries and cities other than the one I end up studying in. Finance wise, it looks like it'd cost the same or cheaper as studying in the US (if I do a 1 year program, I stand to save a ton). I would most likely return to America upon obtaining my degree. The thing is, I have a 3.35 GPA (too much time at my part-job, not enough in the library). I don't know how that looks to European schools. I am doing an Urban Planning thesis this Fall that I can bring up in my applications, but I don't do an internship until Spring semester. Is all of this nothing to worry about, or could it present a problem?
  7. Hey! Does anyone know of any MSW programs that have a focus on global/international service work? Right now I am looking at University of Chicago and University of Denver... Also, any feedback on those two programs? Anyone else applying to these schools for Fall 2017 admissions?
  8. I'm thinking about applying to International Relations Masters programs in the UK. I'm hoping to gain some perspective about questions and reservations I have. Specifically, how are International Relations Masters programs received or viewed by employers in the US, are the viewed as equivalent or as being less valuable? I'm not sure if I want to stay in the UK and find employment there, and if I shovel out thousands of dollars will it be a waste because Think Tanks, DOS, and other U.S. based organization will automatically dismiss the degree as lacking credibility? Thank you for your help.

  10. I am currently sitting for MEXT Japan Scholarship test for master degree. I have already had an acceptance letter from one university and just decided to try for another university as a safe option. There, I found one faculty member whose research fields match my research plan but he is an assistant professor. So, my question is that is it really a good idea to ask for an assistant professor who got his doctorate four years ago to be the supervisor. Yes, it has to be that university and that one professor is the only one whose fields match mine. I hope for some kind replies pretty soon. Thank you!
  11. I have been accepted to my top two choices for graduate study in museums. I originally mainly applied to programs with specific focus in museum education as that is the general direction I want to go in. I got into my top choice for museum education at George Washington University. I also ended up applying to a museum studies program that I came across later in the application season that is a newer program. I ended up getting accepted to the program. It is through Marist College but it takes place at their branch campus in Florence, Italy. It provides a lot of opportunity to learn onsite at the museums in Florence and learn from professionals working in those museums. Also it gives the experience of living abroad which I never got the opportunity to do in my undergraduate years. It is a more general program showing all aspects of museum work with one elective class in museum education. It also has a thesis component which I have already come up with topic for. The topic I have chosen deals with those with dementia and there are some interesting things being done in Europe relating to my area of study and being in Florence would provide the chance to see some of those programs in person. However I worry that long term, George Washington would provide me with better contacts and a clearer path to career in museum education. The program through Marist was started in 2010, so there have only been five previous cohorts. This is making it difficult to find opinions on the program. Does anyone have any insight into either programs you can provide to help make my decision? What is difficult is the pros for each program are very different from each other so it makes it difficult to make a direct comparison.
  12. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this, with the new subforums. If not, please feel free to move where it may be the most appropriate! I'm getting ready to attend a MA program in History and I am very excited. I have decided to focus on European history, specifically in Britain and France, during the progressive era. Back in January 2009, I went on a short trip abroad to London for ten days and fell completely in love. While I don't plan on making London my permanent home, I'd love to live and do research there for a few months. The only problem is, my department has no funds or programs already in place to support research overseas. However, the graduate program director did tell me they would support me in research abroad and would allow me to even take classes for possible credits. My question is, does anyone know of any summer programs that would allow for a graduate student to study abroad? I don't even know where to start really, but I'd love to spend at least a few weeks of next summer in London for class/research purposes. Any help is greatly appreciated!
