  1. Hi Kumapanda!


    I was wondering, since you applied to CSUSM's SLP Masters program, if you had any insight into applying and maybe your stats if you're comfortable sharing? I'm applying for the same program this fall and am just trying to get as much information as possible!


    Thank you so much!! ? 

  2. Hey kumapanda! What do you want to know? Just everything in general or do you have specific questions? I really appreciate speech pathologists, i went to speech therapy for seven years. Let me know how I can help!

  3. I'm not an applicant, but I would love to learn more about Radford as I'll be attending the university this year! Good luck to everyone on the 2017 cycle!
  4. If I could go back and give myself advice, I would have told myself to look into location of the schools before applying. I was so sure I wasn't getting in anywhere and I would accept any place that I didn't really consider that at all. I would tell myself to stop undermining my own achievements and thinking that I couldn't apply to "higher rank" schools because I didn't think my grades or resume was enough.
  5. I think a safe number of schools to apply for is probably somewhere between 6-10. I've seen people apply to as many as 15-20 programs, but it depends on your budget and time as well. Do you have the time and motivation to work on that many programs? I initially had 8 applications, but family pressured me to apply to 10 and it was a stressful and exhausting time for me because each school had different requirements and personal statement prompts. It definitely helps if you have a few CSDCAS programs so you won't overwhelm yourself with different application formats so you save yourself
  6. It's great that you used asha's edfind to search up for schools! I think it would be good if you retook the gre test, ,email to the schools you're interested in with your stats/resume, then ask them if you would be considered a competitive applicant. I chose my schools based on the gre average scores taken from their websites or asha's and then narrowed my list from there. I would definitely brush up on studying for the gre if you're interested in retaking it. I downloaded a magoosh app for my phone because I knew verbal was my weakest subject after taking a practice exam (I think I
  7. Would it be ok for me to necro this thread? I'm a California resident and I'll be moving out of state for 2 years in Virginia for grad school. I called the DMV for both Virginia and California and got conflicting answers on whether or not I should be changing my residence. The California DMV said I could still drive in Virginia with my CA driver's license, but the Virginia DMV said I'm supposed to change my driver's license and license plate within 30 days if I become a resident. Should I become a VA resident to pay for the in-state tuition at the program? Although it would save
  8. Here's the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/168304830222688/ I got the email about a week ago, I believe. It showed up on my Radford email account (the Outlook one). It should be from the director of the department that has a list of courses you should sign up for.
  9. I'll be attending Radford this fall too! Have you joined their facebook page for class 2018 yet? Here is a pdf file with a list of some realty companies you can look at for housing. Radford Area Property Management Companies PDF.pdf If you log onto your Radford account, check your email and there should be a letter from the director on what courses to register for. I haven't been to Radford yet either, so that makes two of us.
  10. I got accepted into Radford's graduate program and I'm stuck on whether I should complete my degree with a thesis or a comprehensive exam. I never had research experience, so I'm not sure what to expect if I was to take the thesis route. What are some pros and cons for these? I would love to hear everyone's experiences/opinions on this.
  11. Hi! I had another person ask me a similar question, so I'll place it here. I'll give you an abridged summary of it in this message because that document hasn't updated since 2014. CSULB - has 6 specialized clinics (including an autism clinic); offers an autism course; more clinical based; has a hospital next door; good reputation for multilingual and multicultural experience; Long Beach city has great diversity SFSU - has many clinics that specialize in working with children; offers specialized programs in autism and AAC; SF is known for its diversity in population; m
  12. I was taken off UNCO's waitlist! I already made my decision for Radford, so I'll be declining UNCO.
  13. I emailed the director of the graduate programs or the graduate coordinators, although if you emailed it to the wrong person, they're usually nice and will redirect your email to the correct person who can answer your questions. Not all the schools will reply back, so having a big list of schools to email to can be a nice thing if you worry your list will be too small.
  14. I just got off the waitlist for University of Northern Colorado and was accepted for their Fall 2016 program. I already made my decision for Radford a couple of weeks ago, but now I'm debating which school I should attend. I'm interested in working in the school setting with clients that have ASD or learning disabilities. Both programs have on-campus clinics, so I'm looking for a program that has a fair balance between clinical and research. I would love to hear everyone's opinions on these two programs on what you like/dislike about them, practicum placement experiences, was it easy to fi
  15. I used ASHA's edfind to get a list of all the certified graduate programs in the country and create a spreadsheet to compare them side by side. I chose schools based on my own self interest, which in this case were schools with on-campus clinics. My spreadsheet included information on where the schools were located, the GRE/GPA requirements, if they had an on-campus clinic or not, and etc. I took notes on my first impression of the school's program by going on their websites and if I had any interest in what I saw. This narrowed my search from roughly 300 programs down to 50-60. From ther
