  1. Besides CSD what are other undergraduate degrees that would work well with a Speech Language graduate degree? So far I’m thinking Linguistics, Social work, Education, Communications, Psychology, language development and English. I am right or wrong on any of these? Any others that would work well? Thanks!
  2. Hi all, I am currently considering doing a PhD in biostatistics. I have been doing a lot of research on PhD programs, but I am still having a difficult time knowing what schools are my reach/target. Target PhD: Wharton, Yale, Cornell (social statistics), UW-Madison, UCLA(social statistics), Brown... Overreaching? Undergraduate Institution: Top 20 private liberal art college (Think Oberlin, Colgate, Macalester...) Major: Economics and Statistics GPA: 3.97 Type of Student: International Asian Graduate Institution: N/A GRE Score: 158 Verbal 168 Q, 5 W -
  3. Hello, i'm an undergrad student at UMD that's already been accepted to grad school for next fall. Due to COVID-19 they have announced this semesters grades will be graded pass/fail unless students elect to receive earned grades for the courses. Should I elect for letter grades since I still have to send my final transcripts?. It will show I've earned my degree either way .
  4. Hi everyone, I graduate this Friday (well I'm walking the stage and I have 2 online summer classes to go) and I'm so nervous and scared for my future. I really want to go to grad school to get my MSW but I am so burnt out from undergrad that I am taking a gap year. Also it was so expensive to apply to grad school. My bachelors of science is in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Latino/a Studies. My dream grad school is University of Chicago but I am too afraid to apply or even apply to other schools. I'm so afraid of failure and rejection. I just wanted to know
  5. I am planning to apply to Stanford's Earth System Science for PhD program next year. I am an international student but, I received both my Bachelor and Master degrees from the United States. My undergrad college was a small college from Midwest but, relatively well known. I did my Master at the OSU. My GPA was below 3 during undergrad due to medical conditions I was going through. I took 2 years off after graduation and worked as lab technician for those years. I worked my butt off during Master degree and finished it with GPA 3.95. I will have four 2 peer review papers as first author and 2 e
  6. Hi everyone! So, I am currently an undergrad in NJ at Rutgers, who notoriously does not have a CSD major. I am a psych major and have a minor in linguistics. My current GPA is 3.866 and I have a 4.00 GPA in my CSD coursework. My experience so far includes: 1 yr research for a school psychologist; research involved creating a virtual simulation program for early career teachers in urban areas and required me to observe classrooms, 6 hours of shadowing at an early intervention and hospital setting (going to get the full 25 before applying), volunteering at the Adler Aphasia Center & a r
  7. Let me first start off by saying that I am not doing poorly in linear algebra because I don't understand it, rather there was a misunderstanding with my professor. I had my first linear algebra exam last Wednesday. I was up very late studying for the exam, however, at around 3 am I got super sick (it was something I ate). I was legit puking every 20 minutes, I couldn't make it to my morning exam. I don't have insurance so I didn't see a doctor and get a note. I went to the dean of students, and because of that my professor gave me an offer to replace my zero exam 1 grade with 2/3 of my final e
  8. Hello all, In December my PI gave me an undergraduate to help me with my project (it's a huge project and we just need more hands). The undergraduate is a first year (about to start his second year) with no lab experience. I've had to teach him everything from putting on gloves to how to work pipettes...etc. Now, 7 months later, the undergrad is still struggling. I myself have been frustrated. He has trouble with things I taught him months ago (like diluting an overnight culture to a specific number and letting it grow) and doesn't make the best decisions... And he forgets a lot of
  9. Finished my undergrad two years ago. Graduate admissions didn’t work out too well (applied to top hep-th schools, so no surprise there). I may apply again, not sure. Either way I’d like to have some solid research experience before I do. Maybe a publication or two in a good journal. However, most summer research option, like REU’s, are impossible now that I’m out of college. So what options do I have? I could just start emailing professors, but that seems disorganized and I’m not sure how I’d be able to arrange the logistics, funding, etc. How do I go about this? Anyone here have experie
  10. Hi all, I am thinking about taking a graduate level class online through ENMU. I am currently on the waitlist and I'm hoping it will help me out. The director of the program said the one in the summer is 6-8 weeks long and moves quickly. I have all summer off bc I work for a school district. This should be perfect, right? I feel a little intimidated bc it's graduate level and fast paced. Has anyone taken a graduate level speech class like this online that is this short? Just looking for other ppls experience with this. Thank you!
  11. I have a bit of a dilemma that I'm trying to puzzle my way through. I am currently pursuing a degrees in Computer Science and International Relations. I have really good grades in my IR program (>3.7), but really terrible grades in my CS program (~3.0). This is due to a lack of preparedness for the rigor of the STEM classes I was taking coupled with a few personal issues that impacted my performance overall. Overall I have a GPA that's around a 3.47, and I was hoping to get that up to a 3.5, but due to a really bad last semester (too many classes and responsibilities), that's unlikely to ha
  12. Hi all, I know there are a plethora of these posts out there, but they've seemed pretty helpful and I am, as the title states, overwhelmed. The run-down: I'm a current undergrad (psychology major and linguistics minor) set to graduate this June at UCSD; my GPA isn't the most stellar (3.5 Cumulative, 3.6 Psych) and I've yet to take the GRE. I ended up finishing all my coursework a year early due to funds and I'm planning to use that "fourth" year as a gap year so I can continue working at the two labs I'm currently involved in and figure out if I want to pursue psycholinguistics/ app
  13. I am a guidance counselor for a rising high school senior who would like to purse a track towards being a bilingual speech pathologist. I wrote to several of the SPL masters programs in our state (NC) and received varying answers. For the most part, if the university offered CSD at the bachelor level, then they leaned toward having students go that track. If they did not, then the university highly recommend they take the pre-reqs before applying (possibly minoring in CSD), but said they preferred diversity in their applicants, so any major would be fine. Thought I'd throw that same
  14. Hi! I'm currently a Junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering at one of the best BME schools in the world, and I'm feeling very unsure about my future (aren't we all?). I have had very little experience in research (about one full semester) mainly due to the fact that I really did not enjoy it and I don't feel passionate about it. Through undergrad I realized that while I do love science, I don't love the tedious work behind it. I'd rather look at the big picture/finished product, understand the science behind it, and move forward with commercialization. I've been interested in the biotech/bus
  15. Not sure if this is the right place to post my question, but if there are any biomath/math/bio people hanging around your help would be very appreciated. I am a second-year undergrad at a large state university trying to plan out a course of study that will prepare me well for graduate school for biomathematics. I am considering doing a double-degree in math and biology. I am also involved in undergraduate research. I'm trying to make sure I take all the classes I need, and also that I graduate in a timely manner. I have heard that five years is ok as long as they don't think you're doin
  16. Long time lurker, first time poster; have mercy. Many people on this forum put their stats up online for people to know their background and to evaluate what their chances are. Yet something has always struck me as odd with this. Whenever anyone details their previous institutions they always put something along the lines of, "top 50 research university", or something along those lines. Why the anonymity? Unless you're study at a super small institutions I would think it virtually impossible for anyone to find out who anyone is. Is it to do with people wanting their anonymity? Is it
  17. I am looking into applying for a couple of art therapy grad programs. I have a B.A. in Theatre and graduated in 2011. The art therapy programs that I am looking at both require 12 credits in Psych and 18 in Studio Art. I have no psych classes under my belt, and my art training was all through THEA classes (along with out of school training). The admissions counselor recommended that I take classes at the local community college in order to get these prereqs. I already have my A.A. and my B.A. and am really concerned about taking even more classes at a community college just to *maybe* get into
  18. I was accepted into a Master's program that starts in the Fall. I need to take 12 hours of pre-requisite undergraduate courses in the first year, and the actual program is 60 hours. Im considering taking at least a few pre-reqs online this summer in order to streamline the process, while working. The only issue is that if I am not in schools this summer I will have time to work more = more money saved. Any thoughts on which option might be best?
  19. Hi all. So like title says, I am an older undergrad (25) just about to start second semester of my junior year at a large state research institution. I hadn't really imagined that graduate life would be so appealing to me as it has become over the past few semesters or so -- the endgame initially was LSAT, not GRE. But since coming back to school, I have developed a huge crush on the academic life / community in English depts / humanities depts in general. Also, I wrote a paper for criticism / theory course that a prof was really nice about and, apparently, very impressed with. It was abo
  20. I was wondering if anybody knows if grad schools take into consideration where you went to get your Bachelor's. For example, if someone gets a 3.8 GPA at a lower ranked school versus someone who gets a 3.4 GPA at a higher ranked school. Would they take the person who got a 3.8 over the person who got a 3.4?
  21. I just graduated with a BA in economics from a small state school with a 2.2gpa. I realize this is very low but I still want to get my MBA in finance in a few years after getting some professional experience. My ideal school would be NYU but I know that is a stretch with my grades. I'm currently in the process of obtaining my CFA certification to supplement my resume. If my job pays for it does it makes sense to get a masters in economics/masters in finance first and obtain stellar grades to help me get into a good MBA program?
  22. Background: I am a rising senior at a small liberal arts satellite school in the southern US. I plan to start submitting applications to MA level Rhetoric and Composition programs in Fall 2017. I have three semesters of classes and one semester of student teaching for my education minor. My long term goal to pursue a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition, but I plan to take a few years off of graduate study after I complete the MA. My undergrad concentration is in Literature, but I want to pursue Rhetoric & Composition for several reasons: I want to teach and study pedagogy more than I want
  23. Hello, I'm a rising sophomore who is very interested in mathematics and my future career goals are in math. I'm at a Big 10 school for math currently, but here's the problem: 1) I struggle with anxiety and certain mental health issues over the past year 2) I pull good grades in non math classes. I have pulled straight B+s in my math classes (the introductory calc sequence). Is it time already to stop thinking about graduate school due to such a terrible record? I'm up for taking linear algebra next. When should the indicator be to quit with math and start looking for something e
  24. Hi all, I am thinking about taking a gap year before I start applying to grad school. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. However, am still not sure what exactly I would be doing in that gap year to strengthen my application. What did you guys do during your gap year and what are some things you wish you had done? Here are some things about me: I plan on getting my PhD in Cognitive Psychology. I just finished my junior year and I am currently double majoring in Biochemistry and Psychology with a 3.6 PGA. I have 1.5 years of lab experience and have worked in a social, c
