    Unfortunately, I stumbled upon GradCafe before finding your blog. It was very discouraging. It made me seriously consider changing my career path and abandoning everything I have worked so hard for. I’m very glad I found your blog. It’s great to read some positive information and useful tips for grad school acceptance. It gives me hope. Thanks so much!

      GradCafe is THE.WORST. And you are more than welcome! Let me know if you have any questions throughout the process! Good luck!

    Hey! I know I’m a little late to the club, but I just found this blog via Pinterest haha. I just got into the SLP undergrad program at my school – so I have 2 more years until grad school but I can’t help but try and prepare my self as early as possible. So, if you have any great tips and/or good ideas for volunteering/working related to the major, I’d be so grateful to know some! Or just advice, that’d be great, too.

    • Shannon says:

      That’s great! Being an SLP is the best career ever 🙂 Really, it is as simple as getting out there and doing activities related to the population you could see yourself working with! Camps for children with special needs, in home autism therapy, babysitting for kids with disabilities, are some things I did to get involved! They all contributed positively to my application! Good luck!

      • Alicia says:

        Oh, awesome! Thanks for responding so quickly.
        I’ve volunteered a lot with children with special needs and absolutely love it. Also interested in the in-home therapy and looking into that. Where/how did you begin working with the in-home autism therapy? Because that sounds like an awesome opportunity! (That’s my last question, promise)

    Hi! When did you take the GRE and when did you apply to grad school? Thank you for your help!

    What is considered to be a less than average GPA or GRE score?

    • Shannon says:

      I’m not sure. From what I know, “average scores” vary significantly by school. I do not know of an overall average. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful!

    I love this! I’m applying to audiology grad school and this is pretty much similar. I didn’t even know what GradCafe is. Hopefully I don’t look at it. I’m curious ????????
