I'm thinking of pursuing a masters in SLP....anyone out there doing so? anyone already a slp? I'm specifically looking for real life earning potential....full vs part time. thanks!! amie
i just wrote up a huge Trip Report at the disboards describing my adventure at WDW this December with my 4 children...ages 10, 7, 3 & 1. I hope this is legal, but here's the link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1306210 the trip was fun...the same as being at home, easier than being home & harder than being home...if you can understand.

Am I crazy? I'm going to take my 4 children (all under 10....two under 3) to WDW for 4 nights....NEXT WEEK. We'll fly there....go to 3 parks & come home on the 24th....It's a surprise. Am I nuts?

what kind of $$ can you expect to make as an LCSW? the program where i live is super expensive...almost as much to get a law degree and much more expensive than the public med school....most people that i've talked to said that they only made around $25K just getting out (how do you pay your student loans and live on that?) but after around 3-4 year can do private practice...i've looked around and have a hard time find out salary information...any ideas?
