    How to prepare for GRE?

    I used Magoosh! I heard about it on here, so many others have used it too! For what you pay for, I think it is entirely worth it!

    Gap Year Job Ideas/Advice

    I volunteered/observed with an SLP that was doing hippotherapy! That was where I found my passion for speech and after graduation I found my way back there, I have always loved horses. I think that schools like seeing something on your application that you are really passionate about and it gives you an edge above others. I also went on a trip abroad to work with speechies through Therapy Abroad. I think finding something that either you haven't tried before or have less experience in is always a good option too, it will give you insight to see if you like the setting, the population, etc. There are so many options! Always feel free to reach out too

    Plan B

    I had a couple of options, but I probably would have tried to get my SLPA while working and then gone onto apply again(probably retake the GRE to get a higher score if possible). I also could have gone abroad to teach with my certificate from undergrad, but that would've been difficult for my personal situation.

    Prerequisites Courses Grades

    I think it depends on the school, when I was applying on CSDCAS they had different required grades between schools. But I also had a B- on my physics requirement when it said I needed a 3.0 soooooo, maybe as long as it's close?

    Opinions on these schools?

    I'm not sure about all of them but I know UW has options for both, where as SJSU is a bit more school focused. I can't really remember about San Marcos. But usually if you look through ASHA EdFind and their page on the program online, you can find more. Good luck!

    Opinions on these schools?

    I applied to a couple of theses schools! I applied to San Marcos as well but sent my transcripts to the wrong place by accident 😕 but it probably wouldn’t have worked out anyway if I got an interview. Are you looking for more of a medical background or more towards the school/education side?

    Speech pathology

    I think there are things that can offset low numbers, you could retake things, that's an option. What's your last 60 units gpa? I truly did not think I would get in anywhere this year, but it happened! Something I think is important for applications is that when you are applying somewhere, make sure to mention why the program is a good fit for you. For me, I want to do multilingual stuff so I got a certificate that showed that in undergrad and tried to reflect it in my volunteer places and where I applied. And then in your personal statement, mention a few professors/faculty members you would like to work with if given the chance and why their research/specialty interests you. And if you have interviews, make sure to ask questions! When you ask good questions, they know you are interested and have a motivation to attend. If you need help, message me I would love to help in any way! You can do it!

    I did too! Can’t complain since I was expecting a rejection.

    When to give up? SLP Grad School

    Everyone already mentioned some great things on here. I think the only thing I would add is to make sure when writing your personal statement, make sure to mention a couple professors/faculty members you would like to work with/learn from if accepted into the program and how they're projects line up with your focus. Oh, and if you have interviews, make sure to think of a few good questions you would like to know about the program. Because, for me, I was so nervous that it just worked better. If this is your passion, you have many cheerleaders just wishing you luck. That's one of my favorite things about this profession, the people!
