Waiting for any sort of important feedback and results can feel hopeless and excruciating!  It is all worth it, and no matter what, no negative response will break you. Everything happens for a reason, and if this is what your heart is telling you do do you should trust it.  Don’t give up, and do you!

Your worth is not determined by grad school, grades, scores or acceptances.  Your value to this school, friends, and family and peers is not correlated to school acceptances or rejections.  This is just a stepping stone for your life and I PROMISE things always work out. Stay strong, stay motivated, and have faith in your abilities.

Stay patient!  Each school moves at its own pace, so it is important to remember that you will hear from each school at a different time.  I got acceptance letters weeks apart from each other so don’t get worked up if one is taking longer than others! Also, never give up!  Things take time and it’s okay if your “story” takes longer than others.

Control what you can control.  You have done what you can to set yourself up for success so take a breath and relax.  Take every opportunity, whether it be an interview, grad school, a meeting with a professor, a rejection letter, etc. and learn from it.  Each day is an opportunity to know more than you did yesterday. Every up and down make your journey unique and wonderful and trust me blessings come in all forms!  You got this and we believe in you!

Your worth is not determined by your GRE and GPA, a rejection is not a reflection of who you are as a person.  Waiting is the hardest part. Stay strong and know that if speech-language pathology is your passion, nothing can stop you!
