Say you don't get in


Recommended Posts

With acceptances, wait lists, interviews and rejections being sent out- say you only get rejections. One of my LOR writers suggested post bacc work, but how worth it is that extra money? Also how do you even apply after you get all the rejections? I haven't explored it yet since I'm hoping I really won't have to, but any insight?

I'm a second year applicant. I got waitlisted at three schools last year but was never accepted. This is not true of all programs, but I do know that some don't look at anything but your original bachelor's work, so I would make sure the programs you are looking at will consider post-bacc work.

If I don't get in this year I'm not trying again. It's honestly too much stress and money. I've been thinking of going the special education route to be a developmental therapist.

It's so emotionally and psychologically draining even just one year of applications. Being an SLP is my dream and it's so unfair that just because a panel says people are better-I will never get the chance. I've had teachers tell me my therapy materials and treatment plans are amazing and I would be great, I'm just an awful test taker and that'll be he deciding factor :/

Don't feel bad. I'm not a great test taker either, but I'm still holding out hope! I cannot even fathom having to apply another year b/c it is super stressful and time consuming. Good luck to you all!

I'm also a 2nd time applicant now. I got rejected from my first choice last year took the classes, got A's and got in this year. Taking the classes on my own was actually cheaper -I took them at USU online - cheap and flexible hours (I'm also a returning student with a family, so it ended up working out better this way). If you don't get in, take the classes and kick some major butt to show them you can do it.
