  1. Hi all! I am currently in the process of applying to graduate school. For reference, I just graduated with my B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I am currently a Child Development Teacher with 2's. My overall GPA was a 3.78 and the last 60 credits is a 3.8. I have three great letters of rec, a great personal statement (imo), and a ton of volunteer experience ranging from individuals with Aphasia, Autism, english-language learners, etc. I was also in my programs NSSLHA and national NSSLHA. The only thing that terrifies me are my GRE scores. Granted, I have not taken it yet and am set to take it in 2 weeks. I am not confident that I will do well and it is eating me alive. With the information I provided above, how likely am I to get accepted into UCF's program? That is where I did my undergrad and is my top school for grad school. I am seeking advice and thoughts and prayers. Thank you all.
  2. IDK if this is allowed but... Would anyone be willing to genuinely critique my letter of intent? I have about a week before I need to send it to the people writing me letters. It's mostly done but its not great. It covers all the basis IMO but has no passion because I've been so worried about it coming off as cliche. I've done impressive stuff and I LOVE the field but Idk how to write it to show that beyond just stating facts. I want so badly to get into graduate school for spring but this letter may not do it 😥 Link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n2UO3RWUrSVYLhfn28aJAqsOFFiuJZsuayHdYYadPsw/edit?usp=sharing
  3. Hi everyone! I'm currently working on my application to be admitted to an MPA program, more specifically the program at the University of Central Florida. I'd really appreciate any feedback on my SoP! I can PM the link to it Many thanks!!
  4. Hi everyone! I graduated from UCF Dec 2017 with a bachelors in legal studies and minor in criminal justice. I had hopes of becoming a lawyer but after working at a law firm and interning for a judge, I realized it just wasn't for me. I then decided to switch directions and started working towards getting a doctorate in physical therapy (I was originally a biomed major when I started college and wanted to go to med school but was also super interested in law). After much thought and having tried my hand at having hands on medical experience working as a tech in a trauma unit at a hospital, I realized the medical field wasn't really for me and I still longed for a path similar to my undergrad degree. I did some research and became really interested in a master in public administration (MPA). I want to further my education with UCF since I had a great undergrad experience and the MPA is offered online which is great because I really don't want to move back to Orlando. UCF also offers a dual MPA and master in criminal justice. I want to apply to that program but I'm worried because I don't have much relevant work experience. Since 2018 I've worked for a medically-integrated fitness facility (fancy way of saying gym that is owned/operated by a hospital) because I tried to get into the medical field it was a great foot in the door. Now that I want to get an MPA/MSCJ I'm worried I won't be seen as a great candidate since I am lacking recent relevant work experience. I had a 4.0 in my major and worked at a law firm throughout my last year in school. After graduating I interned for a criminal court judge for a few months before moving back to my hometown and I helped the judge conduct research on a capital punishment case. I now work at a gym that is owned by a well-known not-for-profit hospital. I started as a front desk employee before moving up to exercise specialist/personal trainer. I do volunteer (at least I did before COVID) for various organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Children First, and others. I really don't want to leave the job I'm at because it pays GREAT and has amazing benefits but I do worry that admissions committee won't see it as a positive. Basically, I'm worried about my lack of recent relevant work experience affecting my chance at being accepted. Anyone have any insight into getting admitted without too much (relevant) work experience? TL;DR Graduated in 2017 with plans of being a lawyer, changed my mind and worked towards becoming a physical therapist. Started working at a gym that's owned by a hospital so it's not a typical gym get my foot into healthcare, changed my mind again and want to get my MPA/MSCJ but worry that my lack of relevant lack experience will hurt my application.
  5. Hey guys, this is my first time on here. I was wondering if you all could give me your honest opinions on if you think I have a shot at getting into a graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology- specifically USF/UCF/FIU/FSU. My GRE scores are a 4 AWA, 149 Verbal, and 146 Quant. My GPA is a 3.48 and I only have about a month of experience. But, I have 3 great letters of recommendations from professors and I think my Statement of Intent is good. Now, I know none of what I just said sounds (is) competitive at all. But, do you think I have somewhat of a chance of getting into... something? I've heard about Nova but the tuition is really expensive. I graduate in May 2020 too. I know I should probably take a year to bring up my GRE scores and get more experience, but (for some reason), I feel like I'm on a time crunch. Ugh, this has already turned into an essay too. I just want to see what you guys think... Thanks everyone.
  6. Looking a the curriculum, this program aligns with my interests and past studies perfectly. However, I can't find much about its reputation online and according to its website only "Approximately 30% of students in the program receive some type of financial assistance from the university, such as fellowships, scholarships or graduate assistantships." which are both red flags for me. I've been looking at fully-funded interdisciplinary media studies programs that have reputations outside of their websites until this point. Does anyone have any information about this program or programs similar to it?
  7. Hi all! I am like many of you, or many of you have been, a very anxious first-time applicant for graduate school. I am very close to submitting my application, but I was wondering if anyone would be willing to read over my letter of intent, and give me some feedback? It is just a little over a page long, and for the school I am applying to, I know they say to keep it generally around a page long. I am hoping the little extra information I provided is acceptable and helpful, but maybe I need a fresh set of eyes to let me know if it is excessive. My numerical stats are fairly average... but I am hoping my letter can help give me that extra push over to the acceptance side. This is my first time doing an application of this sort, so I need all the assistance I can get - as I am fist generation and still very confused after many consultations with advisers from my school. I am so thankful for anyone who would be willing to help me out - and I can return the favor as well! Feel free to either comment or DM me (I think that's how this site works? Sorry - new to this as well!) and I will send it over. My application is due Feb 1 so hopefully I am able to finalize my letter and send my application in soon!

  9. Does anyone currently attend/is anyone considering the SLP graduate program at University of Central Florida? I was recently accepted off the waitlist but I have not heard great things about the program from my peers and from my current faculty at FSU (it is too large, very unorganized, etc.), and I was wondering if anyone had a different opinion? I am definitely considering attending because I have a lot of family and a part-time job opportunity in Orlando, but I am worried that the program might not be the best, based on what I've heard. My other option is USF in Tampa, which looks and sounds like a great program but I was initially leaning toward UCF and just really need help deciding. Thank you in advance!
  10. Hello. I got admitted by UCF for their CS PhD program starting in Fall 2019. The acceptance letter said the following: " If you are awarded a financial offer package (for degree-seeking students only), this information will be sent separately from this admission letter". It has been 1 month since I receive the acceptance letter and I still have not received any information about funding. I found that I am not the only one without that information on the Results Search section of thegradcafe. Does anyone have some information about it?
  11. Hi all, Got admitted at UCF in College of Optics and Photonics PhD 2018. Would like to chat with some other people who got in!
  12. Hi! I am a student at UNC Chapel Hill and only started taking SLP pre-reqs my junior year, and in the years before this I was a nursing/PA student with a low GPA. My GPA in pre-reqs is a 3.7/3.8, and my overall GPA is a 3.1. My GRE scores are alright... 159 V, 153 Q, 5.5 W. I have lots of experience working with my desired community (children) and am looking to participate in research this coming semester (I will be a senior in Fall 2018.) I am also going abroad this summer to Belize and volunteering at a clinic there. I guess what I'm wondering is.. do I have a chance anywhere? With that low of a GPA, but good LOR, experience, and what not, can I still get into my desired programs? Programs I know I'll be applying to are UNC, UNCG, ECU, App State, U of Tenn, U of Memphis, FSU, U of Florida. Programs I may be applying to are UCF, Jacksonville, Radford, NC Central, Western, GWU, etc. Thanks for any help, I am very worried lol
  13. Hi! I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the SLP programs at UCF and USF. I am an out of state applicant and I won't be able to visit these schools before making my decision. Thank you!
  14. Hello All, I have received the PhD admit to UCF EE program on the 3rd week of Feb, 2018. I am yet to receive the financial aid letter from them to process my I-20. Anybody else got the fin aid from the EE department or know what to do or how to proceed?
  15. I recently applied to UCF for their Master of Applied Learning & Instruction (specialization in Teaching), and am currently waiting to hear back. Has anyone else applied to this program? If so, have you heard back yet? I am just curious. Thanks!
  16. Hey all, does anyone know what the schedule would be like should we get admitted to summer semester for graduate program? I applied to traditional track, "Summer 1" through CSDCAS. When I looked at the calendar on the UCF website, there are Sessions A-D for summer with specific dates. Does Summer 1 mean A-D, or just A? I'm not finding any info anywhere! Also, would love to be in contact with anyone else who is applying! I'm from California. If I don't get in, I'll try again for Spring! Thanks everyone!
  17. Hello, I'm a recent Comm. Dis. graduate in Florida and I was accepted to both Baylor and UCF. I am not attached to anything and now would be the best time to move out of state if I'm going to do so. I'm honestly struggling with a decision, which should I choose? I'm not particularly drawn to either. UCF would be $27K total for a 2-year, six-semester program, Baylor would be $52K(they gave a 20K scholarship) tuition total for a 1-year, 4-semester program. I need unbiased responses, I'm struggling alot with this decision. Is the higher debt worth working a year earlier? I haven't heard the best things about the UCF program so I'm very nervous. Anyone with feedback on these two schools please respond!
  18. Hello! I have recently been accepted into the UCF SLP masters program for spring 2017. I really just want to talk to other people who have also received their acceptances.
