  1. Hi!! I’m currently a grad student at WTAMU and I loooove it! I think they don’t receive many applicants because they don’t utilize CSDCAS and it’s located in a really smal town. Not many people know about their out-of-state tuition waiver (I had no idea until I was accepted), which is a shame because it would save a lot of ppl from taking out a lot of loans. Feel free to message me if you have any questions about the program!

    Last 60 Credit Hours

    West Texas A&M looks at last 60 CSD courses only. No GRE required
  4. My overall GPA was a 2.9 (it was lower on CSDCAS), my CSD GPA was a 3.2. My GRE was average. I think it was my experience that made me stand out! I volunteered at a speech clinic and worked as an ABA therapist. I also volunteered doing speech therapy internationally. I was not picky with where I applied, I applied to 10 schools all over the country. I ended up being invited to interview to half of those schools, waitlisted to 2 schools, and then accepted to 2! Keep working on your personal statement and get LORs from profs/supervisors that know you very well. Show the schools who you are and how passionate you are about the field! Good luck!!!

    SLP major with a 3.19

    Your SLP major is awesome!! It is way better than mine (2.9 overall 3.2 major) and I was accepted to 2 schools I agree with @mcamp. Definitely apply to schools that look at the last 60 units or focus on your major gpa. It is great that you are willing to move for school, because there are schools all over the country that take students with your stats. You'll just need to do some research, ASHA edfind is a great resource. Your variety of volunteer work is great, but are they SLP specific experiences? Do you shadow the SLP at the veterans home and pediatric hospital? If so, highlight those experiences in your letter of intent. If not, I would see if there was a way to volunteer with a SLP in those settings. Hands on experience is a major plus!! I personally think if you know your work/volunteer supervisors will write a better LOR than your professors, ask them to do it. I worked as an ABA therapist in a special education class and asked the teacher to write me one. I volunteered with a SLP in a clinic for a year, she also wrote me one. My last LOR was written by a professor I volunteered with but I did not take any of his classes. I had 2 professors agree to write me a LOR but I did not have a relationship with them and I wasn't exactly a memorable student. I figured their LORs would be very general. However, if a school requires that you provide LORs from professors then I would follow those instructions. You can do it, it is very possible for you! There is hope. Don't let your overall GPA hold you back. Good luck!
  6. I will be starting my grad program in the fall and am curious as to how most SLP grad students take notes during class! I have a macbook but it would be annoying to bring around school with my other materials. Would an iPad w/ keyboard be beneficial? Or should I just stick to the old fashioned paper and pen? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

    Low GPA... Is there hope for me?

    I felt the same way you did. My undergrad GPA is a 2.9, my CSD GPA is 3.2, and my last 60 units aren't far from that range. My GRE scores were barely average. I'd like to think that I have very good experience: I worked as an ABA therapist in a special ed classroom, I volunteered at a speech clinic for almost 2 years, and I volunteered doing speech therapy abroad as well. My LORs were from a professor (this was a prof I volunteered with, I did not take their class), my work supervisor, and a SLP I volunteered with. I took a year off after I graduated to work and then applied to 10 programs. Surprisingly, I was invited to interview with 5 of them! I was waitlisted to 2 schools and accepted to 1! Everyone who posted has really good advice! My advice to you would be to research schools on ASHA that have admitted students with low GPAs and receive fewer applications than the average. Apply to new programs, they will have less applicants. Be willing to relocate, I'm from CA and applied to schools all over the country. Message me and I'll give you the list of schools I applied to! Good luck!!!

    Texas A&M Kingsville TAMUK

    Has anyone been accepted here? Or Does anyone have additional info about the program?
  10. If you are into audiology, being a hearing aid dispenser is an option (depending on your location.) In CA, you need to obtain licensure through an exam
  11. Where are you guys located? I was informed that they are still trying to get permission to admit students from certain states since it is an online program. I would email/call the program directly with your questions! They’re very friendly and helpful
