  1. Hey yall! I am planning on applying for SLP programs that start Summer 2019 or Fall 2019, depending on the program. I spent three years at a small private school where I majored in elementary education and special education. I realized my true calling was in SLP so I transferred schools to pursue these dreams. I had spent over a year and a half unhappy with my education major and finally got up the courage to transfer. I decided to transfer the August of what would have been my senior year and it was the hardest decision ever! At my old school, I had a 3.7 GPA, over 200+ volunteer hours
  2. Hi all! I came across this Nature article on tips for international students applying to grad school in the United States: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00845-z?utm_source=Nature+Briefing&utm_campaign=db543bc5f4-briefing-dy-20190314&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c9dfd39373-db543bc5f4-43891109 I hope it is helpful!
  3. Hi all! I thought it might be a good idea to create a forum where people can share their self-care tips, especially during this time period where grad school results are coming in (or not, which can be stressful). This is definitely not a cure or a 100% solution, especially for those that have a mental illness, but I hope these tips/advice will be of some help during the waiting. So, here are some self-care tips I TRY to utilize: 1. Walking. Being stationary is not good for your body in general, so it is always good to just take a walk outside and enjoy nature. 2. Binge wa
  4. Greetings~ I'm in a one year masters program, which I felt didn't give me enough time to prepare a successful PhD app [making a writing sample, getting letters of recommendation, really articulating what I want from a PhD program or faculty advisor, etc]. I will be taking a gap year before applying for PhDs in American Lit. I'll be staying in the same city, Pittsburgh, which has plenty of opportunities for English MAs. I'm not too worried about finding the best work for me, but I'm curious-- what are others doing for a gap year? If you did take a gap year, what did you do that made it s
  5. Hey Grad Cafe, Hope you all are doing well; I could use your all's advice and knowledge! I recently graduated undergrad with a major in communication and a minor in psychology. However, since being out of school, I've been reflecting on how I want to continue my education specifically in psychology, with my main interests particularly in counseling and clinical psychology. I want to start developing my skills and experiences to best prepare and apply in the Fall of 2019 for Master's programs. I have a couple questions about these: How should I best approach the fact that I want to co
  6. I just finished my undergrad in december and had applied to do my masters in the fall.. but Unfortunately grad school is not in the cards for me this fall. I applied for 2 different programs (I know that's not a lot..) and got rejections from both. I'm a little disheartened obviously but I'm trying not to be defeated and looking into what I can do in these next 8 months to really improve my chances for applying this fall for a fall 2019 intake. I've already asked around and there unfortunately aren't any volunteer opportunities in the Environmental field near me as I'm having to live in
  7. It has been my impression that the GRE Lit Subject test has been slowly falling out of fashion. Despite that, we still have to play the game, don't we? From what I've seen, very few schools require it. Does anyone have a list of the schools that do? When I applied to UVA for my Masters, they accepted me without receiving my score, but since they technically required it, I needed to send my score anyway for administrative purposes. That sent a message to me: "We require this, but it is not that important." That being said, my score was...uh, not very good. I feel compelled to retake it b
  8. Hi everyone! I'm just about done applying to graduate schools in speech language pathology and now it's all about waiting...To all of you who are on the same boat as me, best of luck to all of us! Anyway, Georgia State University is the first school I applied to and I heard back from them to come in for an interview (yay!!!). I wanted to see if anyone can offer some tips and information about the interview, what kind of questions I should be prepared for, and generally what to expect in regards to the interview day. Any input will be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!!
  9. Hey all! I just joined GradCafe, and I am so stoked but also nervous about the fact that applying for grad schools is just around the corner. Right now I am feeling so nervous because I know my credentials are not where they need to be. I'm graduating early in December, but since most grad schools don't do spring start and heading straight to grad school with no break would be INSANE, I am planning on finishing out my lease here. Then I'll be applying for summer and fall start dates at multiple schools. I have a few school ideas, which I'll state down below. I plan to earn a Masters in Social
  10. Hi guys! I came across this post on facebook recently- I follow a lot of these GRE related pages in the hope of finding something exactly like this Anyway, this appears to be a webinar by a graduate of Stanford University on how to approach writing your SOP for your Masters or PhD. I've attended one of her webinars on a different subject before, she had some great advice to give. So I thought I should share this in case anybody else is looking for tips and would like some quality advice. Here is the link to the facebook post- PS- I copied the link to the webinar from t
  11. Hi there! I applied to graduate school in the 2015-2016 application cycle and am finishing up my first year. A lot of my BME/BE friends have asked me for tips, so I wrote a (relatively) short document, attached. It mostly focuses on the thinking process of where to start when applying to grad school, such as: - Where should I apply? How do I decide where to apply?! - What parts of the application should I focus on? - What should I look for in a school? - How do I decide? I hope these tips are helpful! Feel free to ask any additional questions! Tips for A
  12. Does anyone know of SLP graduate programs that require an interview during the application process? It can be in person/phone/video chat. I only know of a few so far.
  13. Hi Everyone, It looks like I will be reapplying to graduate schools next year. Some of the feedback I have gotten from my letter writers is that I may want to try to apply to less top tier programs next time, but I was wondering what is the best way to determine what schools are middle tier or safety schools? Smaller, less well-known schools looked like they typically (not always) had less promised funding for Ph.D. students, which is why I didn't apply to some of the smaller programs for F17. Does anyone has any tips for figuring out safer bets when it comes to reapplying? Do you n
  14. Hi guys, For those of you struggling with GRE, especially GRE math, I am holding a meetup event this Sunday to talk about great tips and advice about GRE math test with one-to-one consultation. I am currently a graduate student at Columbia University. I took GRE twice last year and scored 100% on math, which has definitely helped me to get accepted into Columbia University. Many of my friends asked me tips - I have used Magoosh but I made my own problem book and I keep refreshing them and practice looking for keywords. With the right strategy and preparation, I believe everyone can score
  15. So I know this is hard to know but I mostly just want tips on where to head from here GRE: Have not taken it yet but practice testing in high 150's both right now. GPA: Overall and major GPA from 3.75-3.77 from UC Berkeley. 4.0 My last year if that matters. (CC transfer student though - GPA the same at both institutions). Experience: A lot of organizing experience will have two years of post-grad work experience by application time in non-profit work. Writing sample: 17 pages on On the Changing Role of Police Practices Targeting universities ranked 5-20. Mostly UCS
  16. Hi, this forum has no specific question or concern, it has a lot. After applying, the waiting game is very hard to play.. I have generals questions and curiosities about people with past experiences and general knowledge about slp grad programs. I've read old post that have a lot of information about when schools start sending out acceptance letters and on how many rounds they hold.. Texas state has accepted and rejected people until the second week of May.. What programs did you apply to? How many times have you applied? What's the best advice you could give to someone who ha
  17. Hi everyone! I have an interview with the University of Tennessee's speech pathology program on March 5th, and to my knowledge it will be the only school to interview me. I just had a quick question about whether I should mention something in my interview if such a question comes up. Even though I majored in linguistics and had never set foot in a speech pathology class or observation, I knew last year (my senior year of college) that I wanted to go to grad school for SLP. So, I applied to several schools, all very ambitious choices (perhaps too much so). I got an interview at one, a waitli
  18. A fellow JD/MBA friend of mine and I just started The Provident PhD, a blog written by and for graduate student families to share ideas for saving money during the financial gauntlet of grad school. Check it out and give us your creative ideas for making ends meet, particularly if you're managing grad school with a spouse and children.
  19. I'm planning on taking the GRE in about three weeks but Im panicking a bit. I'm a foreign student (foreign to the US) and haven't had to take an exam thats in the same format as the GRE before. I'm currently doing a masters and work when I'm not studying so I've found it hard to find the time to study. Can anyone give me any tips or advice on how to study for the exam or what to expect? I'm getting quite desperate at this point lol.
  20. I'm planning on taking the GRE sometime towards the end of November, however I have one big problem, I don't know much about it lol. I'm an Irish student looking to apply to graduate programs in America, however the GRE isn't a widely taken test over here so its quite hard to get information and tips about it from people. If anyone could give me any advice from which books to get/online resources, to a plan/structure on how to study for it I would greatly appreciate it. I'm looking to apply to television production type courses in Boston University, Syracuse and possibly a few other so any rel
