  1. I was just accepted into a graduate program that follows the april 15th resolution, what exactly does this mean? If I accept this offer then get off the waitlist at a preferred school does this mean I am not allowed to rescind my acceptance or just ask their permission? The april 15th resolution states: "Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this Resolution. In those instances in which a student accepts an offer before April 15 and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15. However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student not to accept another offer without first obtaining a written release from the institution to which a commitment has been made. Similarly, an offer by an institution after April 15 is conditional on presentation by the student of the written release from any previously accepted offer. It is further agreed by the institutions and organizations subscribing to the above Resolution that a copy of this Resolution or a link to the URL should accompany every scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, and assistantship offer." Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi All! I know that the April 15th deadline is approaching. Has anyone made their final decisions yet? What were some of the factors in why you chose that school? Congrats everyone!
  3. Hi everyone!!! I will most likely be attending Midwestern University Downer's Grove (IL) in the fall. I've lived on the west coast my whole life so I thought I would reach out and see if anyone who is familiar with the Chicago area has any information they'd like to share. When I interviewed at MWU I didn't have any time at all to look around Downer's Grove or Chicago. Any advice on housing, traffic, best pizza place lol, or how the area is in general would be much appreciated! Should I live in a suburb (if so, which one?) or make the commute from the city? Also if anyone else is accepted to MWU please comment I'd love to hear from you!
  4. Hi all! Does anyone have any insight on University at Buffalo, Buffalo State, or Fredonia State? Trying to decide between the 3 and any info/ insight would be helpful! Thank you!
  5. Is anyone thinking of going to UB? Is there a facebook group started yet?
  6. Is anyone still waiting to hear back from UMD and Emerson's the low residency program??
  7. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to visit the campus when I was in Denver a few months back, so....can anyone give me some insight into CU Boulder's program or their impressions of it? Pros, cons? Who else is applying there??? All the forum threads that I've found are at least a couple years old, so I thought I'd make a fresh thread. Bonus points on any insight into how many accepted WICHE WRGP applicants actually get in-state tuition (admissions wasn't too helpful in their response to that)! I'm not too sure about my chances, but I'd still love to learn more about the program. TIA!
  8. I am not a very good student over all, GRE scores were in the mid 140's and got a 4 in writing. My cumulative GPA is 3.48 but in my speech courses it's only a 3.0. I am desperately trying to find Speech Pathology masters programs that are not ridiculous to get into. I'm asking about NYU because I spoke to an advisor there who was VERY optimistic about my getting in. Compared to everyone else I've spoken to, this was a major relief and is even making me consider paying the stunning $76,000 for the degree!! Anyways, this advisor told me that NYU does not have a cap on how many students they accept into the online program, and do not even list their GPA and GRE requirements online because they want to encourage all students to apply even if they do not think they have very good scores. I would like to hear from someone who has gotten into the program or knows any information about it whether or not this is true. I am strongly considering the online option, but would also like to know whether the in person MS program is more difficult/competitive?
  9. 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!!
  10. Hey everyone! Same as last year's thread: now that the interview season is upon us, lets post the following: when you got the invite to the interview where one could find the invite, portal, etc any tips from previous interviews questions that were asked on the interview that can help us good luck to everyone!!
  11. Hey guys, Has anyone heard when decisions from TC will be released?
  12. Does anyone know how the waitlists at Adelphi work? I applied to the Manhattan campus and just got waitlisted. Is there a certain rank? Also, when do they usually start prioritizing the waitlist?
  13. Does anyone have opinions on either of the schools/cities? The programs are both ranked #30, so I was wondering what makes them different.
  14. Does anyone know if they've sent out all rejections, waitlists, and acceptances yet? I know some people got decisions a few weeks ago but I still see a few haven't?
  15. Hi all, I'm a little confused by the UT Dallas portal. It says my app is incomplete and awaiting my official transcript, but from what I've seen they only want your official transcript after you've been offered admission. Does everyone's portal say incomplete awaiting documents??
  16. Did anyone apply to Monmouth University? When do you think we should start hearing from them?
  17. I got put on the waiting list for Pacific U's SLP masters program. Anyone else? I'm curious how many there are. Also, they said they don't disclose wait list positions which makes it harder to know if I should wait it out or not. Anyone else have this concern?
  18. It's impossible to find any information about how QC's interviews are and I recently saw somebody post that they were notified that their interview will be a group interview. Does anybody know if they did this in the past? I have mine this upcoming week & I'm very nervous. Thanks for any information in advance!
  19. So now that acceptances are starting to roll in, I'm wondering if anyone has advice. I want to work in a hospital after I graduate. I'm wondering what sorts of things I should be looking for in a graduate program to make me more successful in a hospital setting! Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

  21. So I was accepted to Boston University today, which is my top choice, but with no mention of a scholarship. I see on the results page others have been offered scholarships with their admission. I also was accepted to George Washington University with a $42,000 scholarship. I would much rather attend BU, but cannot without some funding. A few people recommended (politely) using the scholarship from GW school as leverage for receiving funding at other schools. Anyone heard of this actually being a thing? If so, what's the best way of doing it? Thanks for the help!
  22. Hello! I have applied to the 2017 DVLE Speech Language Pathology program at JMU. I am anxiously waiting to hear if i have been accepted or not! I am a practicing SLPA and have just been rejected from WKU online program. Was wondering if anyone has heard and what GRE/GPA looks like! Fingers crossed!
  23. Hey guys! Anyone have any idea when we typically to hear about funding (scholarships, TAs, etc.) from schools? Is this usually in the acceptance email? I've heard some schools wait even till after the commitment deadline :/ I know this varies between schools, so if anyone knows specifically about GW, BU, MGH, UVA, or UW, that would be great! Thanks!
  24. I recently applied to 10 schools for my masters in Speech Language Pathology. My GPA is a 3.78 and my CSD major GPA is a 3.8. I have solid recommendations, research and work experiences, great extracurriculars BUT my GRE score is awful. I took it twice and I even took a Kaplan course. V- 149 (39th percentile) Q-150 (39th percentile) AW- 4.5 (87th percentile) Are grad schools going to throw out my application because of my low GRE? I'm starting to worry, I hear most programs don't even bother to look at your application if you have under a 300 GRE.
  25. Hello! I have been interested in completing a Masters degree in Speech Language Therapy. I have a passion for helping people and I want to be in a professional/clinical environment. I myself went through speech therapy and I was amazed at the impact that speech disorders have on peoples lives. After completing my sessions, I couldn't believe the difference that just 1-3 sessions with my therapist made on my consciousness and my day-to-day life. I graduate in April from with a BA in Communication from a Canadian university. I realize that Communication is out of the field of Speech so i'm looking for some advice on getting into the competitive masters programs. I plan to take a year to complete the required 5 prerequisite courses that I do not have as well as gain volunteer experience. Also, I'm working diligently to keep my GPA at, or above, the required GPA level. My main concern is that my degree is not related to the field of speech. I have been told that universities often seek people with different academic backgrounds for diversity. Any similar stories or advice would be really beneficial for my knowledge but also for my confidence! Thanks
