Cinnabunhead Posted May 28, 2015 Share Posted May 28, 2015 I am applying to grad schools next semester. My grades from this last semester were posted online and so far, my major GPA is a 3.69. I am planning on waiting for my fall 2015 grades to come in before I send out any transcripts or applications (hopefully it strengthens my GPA). I am really worried because my OVERALL GPA is only a 3.35. Im wondering if anyone knows of any schools that mostly look at Major GPA and not cumulative?? I didn't do so great in some general ed. classes that don't have any relation to Speech path. My experience so far includes:- 60 hours of volunteering at a nursing home (in high school)-Reading partners (non profit after school reading program)- Babysitter/tutor for a child suffering from dyslexia- Shadowing a speech pathologist in a school setting (this summer)-NSSLHA member-...Looking into becoming an ACE autism volunteer, or participating in clinical research I will be taking the GRE at the end of this summer. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to strengthen my application as well? I've been feeling really discouraged lately reading all of the posts about people who have higher GPA's/ more experience than me and didn't get into grad school.
