  1. Are you an SLP student or graduate of an SLP program?
  2. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that if you go through a program that's a candidate for accreditation, you'll be able to get your CCCs, even if they don't end up getting accredited (which is unlikely).
  3. Just wanted to let everyone know that I submitted my application two days ago and just received an e-mail saying it's been Verified. I've had my transcripts in for a few weeks, but I was not expecting CSDCAS to be this quick! Here's hoping they keep it up.
  4. Hi! I don't have a personal statement either, just an essay I need to complete. I'm happy to swap essays/personal statements, though! Just PM me. Thanks.

    CSDCAS deadlines

    Here you go. 😊
  6. What do you do if your program is listed on CSDCAS, but your school requires a specific template for the LORs? Has anyone been in this situation? I was under the impression that letter writers submitted one letter to CSDCAS, which was then made available to all of the schools to which the applicant applies. The school in question requires that letters be uploaded to CSDCAS (rather than being sent to the department). I've contacted CSDCAS, but I thought I'd ask here in the meantime.

    best US cities without a car

    Re: Champaign-Urbana, you probably need a car unless you live on campus or in downtown Champaign. Public transit is decent for a smaller city (by U.S. standards, at least), but I'd still recommend bringing a car.

    A couple points regarding p287's post (sorry, it's not letting me quote individual sentences on mobile): I'm a US citizen and Canadian permanent resident. If you become a permanent resident of Canada, your status would only be revoked if you did not meet your residency obligations in Canada (2 years out of every 5). Also, while you'll need to file US taxes each year, it's unlikely you'd need to pay taxes in the US and Canada - you can deduct a certain dollar amount of income (more than 100k USD, I believe). If your income were to exceed that, there are also tax treaties in place to avoid double taxation. Your best bet would be to find an accountant who specializes in US/Canadian taxes.

    How do you decide?

    Congratulations on your acceptances! I didn't know Emerson offered scholarships for their online program -- I wonder if they would award enough to defray the hefty price tag (or at least make them comparable to CSUN)!

    SLP major with a 3.19

    Louly posted above that s/he got into the following programs: University of Oregon, U of Memphis, U of Utah, and Florida State.
  12. It sounds like OP is not a CA resident, so s/he would be ineligible for state grants for residents.

    University of Minnesota has a distance program? Whaaat?

    2017 Canadian Application Thread!

    I know some programs can't accept applicants who aren't Canadian citizens or permanent residents -- UBC and Toronto come to mind. Also, keep in mind that schools in Canada can be even more competitive than those in the states; after all, there are only seven programs where English is the language of instruction in the entire country.

    2017 Applicants Here!

    I'm curious about their clinical placements and whether they have more of a medical or school focus--my thought is that it's about equal? I'm planning on applying there next year and appreciate any insight! Thanks!
