ainsworthk7259 Posted September 8, 2017 Share Posted September 8, 2017 Hi folks, So I just transferred into a CommDis program, and I am receiving good marks: but I am wondering about certain facets of the grad school application. For example, student research at my school is incredibly hard to come by: this is because there is a large number of CommDis majors at my school with frankly, all of the same qualifications, so the chances of any student(even with good grades) being accepted into one of these positions is few and far between. Is there a way to offset this in my application, or any organizations that allow students to participate in research? Additionally, I am wondering about what is considered an "average" resume for grad school, and also what is the top standard. I have had some experience working with children, and I am doing a ten week internship with an autism program next year. I plan on doing tutoring, as well as doing a weekly program as a teaching assistant with The Literacy Project(A program which helps both highschoolers and adults graduate with a high school diploma). I am also a member of the NSSLHA chapter at my school. However, I feel that these things seem sub-par at best on my application. I am attempting to get a job working as a PCA one-on-one, but those jobs are also hard to come by in my area. Any advice or ideas? Thank you for your time!
