Hello, I would like this to be a forum for you as an applicant, current student, or alumni of any Boston speech-language pathology programs to post your insight, experience, knowledge or advice comparing the schools. I know I am not the only one who applied to more than one school in the Boston area so I would like help on choosing which one to attend! (I have been accepted to MGH and Northeastern) but this can be for all 4 programs! Some questions include.. Why did you choose X program What kind of training / orientation is there prior to beginning clinic? How are clients paired with students? Do we decide on clinical placement site? Surviving without car? How are classes/workload? challenging but possible? Work life balance? Can you still enjoy boston? Describe typical day?? Do you feel comfortable with supervisors? Asking for help? Classmate interaction?
Hi everyone! Like many of you, I'm having a really hard time making a decision. MGH was originally my top choice. I have always been really impressed by its clinical affiliations, on campus clinic, and of course its amazing reputation. However, I noticed that MGH requires about 20 more credits than the other schools and requires an extra semester of classes. Many of its semesters also require 6 or 7 classes as opposed to 3 like many of the other schools do. I wanted to know if you enjoyed your experience, and whether you found the work load to be overwhelming. Did you find these extra classes to be beneficial in your placements? I have heard some stories of other girls in the program who were mentally and emotionally drained by MGH's demanding workload. Although I love MGH, I can't help but wonder whether I would be slightly less stressed out at another program in Boston. If anyone is currently at MGH or went to MGH or had a friend at MGH, I was wondering what your opinion on this was. Is the workload crazy? Is it manageable? Did you like it? Thank you so much in advance!!
Hello!In January I was accepted into Washington University in St. Louis, and in the last weeks I was accepted into MGH IHP in Boston, and Murphy Deming college in Virginia . I am having a lot of trouble deciding between the 3. WashU- I truly can see myself here. I appreciate all of the connections, the low price of living, and that student health insurance is included in tuition. Definitely would push me to grow, as it would be a step outside of what I'm used to, living in the city. Top ranked school might give me more opportunities finding a job after graduating. Facilities were not as nice and updated as the others. Very welcoming faculty members. Murphy Deming- I love the smaller class size and the inter professional design. Coming from Wyoming, I know I would feel more in my comfort zone living in rural Fishersville, VA. Facilities much more impressive than WashU. Low price of living.MGH- I feel this school is a good mix between WashU and Murphy Deming. The facilities are amazing, inter professional design, and I felt the school has many valuable connections. However, the price of living is crazy! Can anyone offer their opinion on the schools?
I just wanted to get this thread started in case any of us had questions! I'm also unable to attend the Welcome Day on April 9th, so I wanted to see what everyone had to say about it! Congratulations to everyone accepted! SUPER excited for this one.
Hi everyone! I have been accepted into NY Medical College and MGH for graduate school. I know I have a while to decide, but I am already feeling very torn about choosing between these two. I am very interested in medical speech language pathology, therefore I applied to programs that had more of a medical focus. However each school has their pros and cons. I was wondering if anyone is in the same boat or knows anyone who has been to 1 program or the other? Any advice would be appreciated. NYMC Pros: --Strong coursework, medical focus --Medical placements --Cadaver lab for anatomy --Graduate housing provided on campus --TSSLD certification (for working in schools) included in Master's curriculum --Connections around NYC --Close to home (I live on long island) Cons: --More expensive --72 credits in 5 semesters (MGH does it in 6 semesters) MGH Pros: --High ranked graduate school and well known --Received funding to the program --Adult neurogenic concentration --Connections around Boston --Medical based Cons: --Far from home (4 and 1/2 hours) --No housing provided --Program would require an additional summer --Would need to get certified in NY after graduation because I ultimately see myself in NY in the future
