Hello? Wow! It's finally here...the audiology news group.
Hmmm...I'm glad I got my vote in on time...but where *is* everyone?
Well, *I'm* here, so I'll just introduce myself.
My name is Laura. I am an audiology undergrad. at James Madison
University in Harrisonburg, VA. Actually, we don't have an
"audiology" major--just Comm. Sciences and Disorders, but that's
what I want to do my grad work in. I'm a senior this year, but
being the glutton for punishment that I am, I will be here next
year, after finishing my BS in Psychology, so that I can also finish
my work with CSD. Don't know yet where I want to attend grad school.
I'm still trying to figure that out...hopefully, after writing for
more info to about 30 potential schools, I will have a better idea.
I think I'd like to work with the kids--the little ones--in order that
they may have an easier time growing up (seems like an oxymoron, doesn't
it? "easy time" and "growing up?" just *without* a hearing impairment!)
Anyway...I was really excited to see this group finally formed, but
a littel disappointed that no one wrote anything. Have to be patient
I guess. Please write--I'd love to hear from other audiology students
as well as practicing audiologists and/or professors!
