speechiekeen43 Posted November 29, 2016 Share Posted November 29, 2016 Hi all, I (like everyone else) am currently freaking out over the application process. Due to some personal circumstances I'm only going to be able to apply to one school this cycle that is closer to home and I am obviously panicking. The school is St. Rose in Albany and I was wondering if anyone could offer any insight into their admissions criteria and whether or not I have a chance. My application is definitely lacking in the experience department. I do have one volunteer experience abroad working as a speech assistant, but it was only a couple of weeks. I'm actually considering not even including it on my application because I left early due to the job being unethical. My stats: cumulative GPA: 3.4, CSD GPA: 3.89 GRE: 163V, 155Q, 4.5 AWA Basically just wondering if anyone can offer any insight to St. Rose and offer any advice for the following questions: -Should I talk about a volunteer experience that I left due to unethical practices or should I leave it out? I've been considering including it and omitting the negative parts of the situation. -Do you think my GRE is high enough to help balance my low cumulative GPA? -I've seen a lot of people on here talking about reaching out to the schools and asking if they are a competitive applicant. Would it be appropriate to reach out to St. Rose, give them my stats and ask if I'm competitive and whether or not the lack of experience will be a deal breaker? -Should I make it known to St. Rose that they are my number one school (and literally only school ha) or would that come across as too pushy/desperate? Thanks in advance for reading/helping out CANNOT wait until this whole process is over Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
