ballerina18 Posted February 22, 2014 Share Posted February 22, 2014 (edited) Hello Everyone. I am very anxious about this application cycle (as I'm sure we all are). This is my second year applying to SLP Masters programs and this time around I am looking to do anything to help sway the admissions team. Last year I only applied to one graduate program (ISU- where I attended my post-bacc program) and this year I am applying to three programs with hope that my chances will increase. I live out in the middle of nowhere so the three programs I am applying to are all distance programs. There is a university branch of one SLP program that is about 5 hours away from me. I was thinking I could call one of my old professors to ask if she would be willing to give me a tour of the campus and allow me to volunteer in the speech & hearing clinic for a few days. My goal would be to network and make a good impression. (Oh, I should mention that none of the programs I applied to hold interviews or open house events prior to their decision) Is this a good idea? Do you think it would help me get into their grad program? Decisions don't go out until April so I feel like I should get up and do something. Meet people in person...how else can I show them that I am devoted to this career? Thank you for reading the ramblings of someone who should have gone to bed hours ago. lol Edited February 22, 2014 by ballerina18 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
