  1. Nazareth college does have an autism specialty track!
  2. Hi! I'm from 45 minutes east of the Rochester area and have visited naz's slp grad program a few times. It was my top choice but unfortunately I couldn't afford the private tuition and had to choose a school I could get in-state tuition. The program seems phenomenal and they have a brand new wellness center where occupational, physical, and speech therapy students treat patients and it's absolutely gorgeous! The campus is beautiful. And Nazareth is in Pittsford which is an extremely nice suburb of Rochester about 15 minutes outside the city. They also offer deafness and autism specialization t
  3. Hi! I'm a first year student at UB right now! There are 6 supervisors and they're all amazing. Very nice, supportive, helpful, and extremely knowledgable in their areas. Between them all they cover the scope really well. One specializes in AAC, one in autism/social pragmatic, one in voice, one in child artic/language, one in accent mod/fluency, and one in adult language/medical (aphasia,TBI, dysphagia,etc.) We do on campus clinic the first 4 semesters, and then you do 2 different 6 week externships in any areas of your choice for the last semester. (There are no classes the last semester so
  4. I am a first year graduate student and I know of many many people who got in off wait lists, in fact I think more than half of my class was put on the waitlist at first! Most people apply to around 5-8 schools, so everyone that gets accepted first round has until April 15th to decide, and then they have to turn down all the other offers at the other schools they applied to which opens many more spots after April 15th. So usually they send out a lot more acceptances after April 15th, and then then they keep sending out more and more acceptances until all the spots are filled. I know a girl who
  5. Hi all! If you want more info on how to get into grad school, what grad school is like once you're in, what to expect, etc. I follow an awesome SLPA/ slp grad students's instagram account (@thesocialspeechie) and YouTube account (the social speechie). She has a lot of really helpful videos with awesome information and is always open to answering any questions! Good luck to everyone who applied this cycle!
  6. @Andrea6813If you follow @thesocialspeechie on instagram she goes to FSU's online distance program and would be able to answer any of your questions if you dm her! She also has a YouTube channel (the social speechie) and explains what the program is like in some of her videos!
  7. Amazon has great speech language pathology clipboards that have a ton of useful information from all classes on the front and back (developmental norms, phonetics, swallowing phases, brain areas, etc.) https://www.amazon.com/speech-pathology-clipboard/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Aspeech pathology clipboard Also Etsy has really great SLP mugs/wine glasses with phonetics and cute SLP sayings that you can get personalized!
  8. I have heard they care more about verbal than Q. I only got a 149 on verbal and a 152 on Q and got accepted to every school I applied to so you should be fine!
  9. @jpiccolo @Chai Tea Latte Thank you both for replying! Do you mind if I ask how many clients you currently have? Or are you on a diagnostic team/screening team? And does your program do on campus clinic all of the semesters leading up to externships or do yo do off campus placements?
  10. @Blue J I would be happy to update you around finals time! During undergrad I also often heard that it was the worst 2 years of your life and you just need to get through it so I went in expecting the worst, and have been pleasantly surprised at how much I'm enjoying myself. As it nears the end of the semester and due dates for final presentations/papers near I definitely am feeling more overwhelmed with work, but since I enjoy all the topics it is work I don't mind doing. The amount of valuable information/experience I have gained the past 2 months is definitely worth the workload! You'll loo
  11. @chloslp I came in feeling incredibly unprepared. I went to a different school for undergrad, so I was nervous that I didn't learn the same things those that went to my current grad school for undergrad did, and I felt like I hadn't had as much shadowing/outside experience as others, plus my undergrad program didn't offer clinic practicum while others did, so I was worried I would be behind. However, when I started I was pleasantly surprised that it seemed like most of my cohort was all on the same page. Many of my classes (aside from neuro lol) overlapped with many things I learned in undergr
  12. @futureSLPhopefullylol I was in the same exact boat! I felt I didn't have a very inspiring reason why I chose the field or any major struggles I've had to overcome that would make me stand out. Many of my professors told me to focus more on why I think I would succeed in their graduate program/ what qualities I have to offer to make myself an appealing candidate. So I wrote about relevant past work/ volunteer/ extracurricular experience that I thought would help me succeed in clinic (internship as a co-ESL teacher showed I am able to collaborate well with other professionals, 1:1 autism aide,
  13. Hi all! I am a current slp graduate student in my first semester. I remember being incredibly scared and anxious during the application process and months leading up to graduate school after hearing many horror stories about stress level/lack of time and not knowing what to expect and being so nervous to start clinic for the first time. I remember reading through this forum and trying to soak up any and all information I could find about what to expect when I started. I am now 2 months in and loving every second! Yes it is a lot of work, but it is so exciting to be able to apply the know
  14. To any current of former graduate student: (or any future student that has insight on this matter) i am currently in my first semester of graduate school and will have about 45 clinical hours by the end of my first semester. How many did you all have after your first semester of graduate school? I am not sure if this is a decent amount or if I will have catching up to do in coming semesters. Thanks! ?
