  1. You could always call and ask! I found this on EdFind: Email Address: slhs@csueastbay.edu Phone Number: (510)885-3233 Program Director: Shubha Kashinath, PhD., CCC-SLP Hopefully you'll be able to get some answers soon.
  2. Check out this forum! https://forum.thegradcafe.com/forum/96-audiology/
  3. You will need to get the same degree (MS or MA) regardless of whether you are interested in a specialty. That being said, you may look into programs that place more emphasis on one aspect of speech which you're interested in. For example, my program offers elective courses and opportunities in voice beyond those that are required. If you are interested in working with a specific population, you can definitely apply to schools which have more courses or practicums in that area.
  4. University of Memphis! Incredible program and they try to make sure all students get some form of a GAship at one point or another of the two-year program. I was offered a GAship which came with the added bonus of in-state tuition. Ultimately it was too far for me to attend, but you should definitely consider it!
  5. W in NY and NJ. I've actually never heard anyone say it with a V.
  6. I think this is who @SoCali is suggesting? Rachael Walden M.S., CCC-SLP Clinical Director, Instructor, Academic Advisor, Clinical Supervisor(775) 682-7016 rwalden@med.unr.edu You could also contact: Thomas L. Watterson Ph.D. CCC-SLP Professor; Chair, Speech Pathology and Audiology; Clinical Supervisor(775) 784-4887 twatterson@med.unr.edu Best of luck!
  7. If it helps, advice that I have heard is to not take out loans worth more than the salary you would start out with following your CF. I don't know what salaries look like in your area, but that's something to keep in mind!
  8. Thank you! Do you mind messaging me the brand/type of parka you have?
  9. Thank you!! I am not looking forward to this winter weather!
  10. Rolling admissions just means that you can apply earlier than the deadline to get potential priority in admissions and earlier knowledge of admittance. So if you apply for a program with a deadline of January 15th in November or December, that may help you getting accepted or help you to find out if you've been admitted earlier than other applicants. It has nothing to do with which semesters the program offers. Also, if you look on CSDCAS, you'll have to choose the program you are applying to, and many of them are separated by start date, so if you want to start in the Fall, you'd do you whole application within "___ University Fall Start" instead of "___ University Spring Start".
  11. Thanks, bibliophile! What types of clothes are clinic-appropriate? I am bracing myself for cold weather and am not used to that, so I will have to invest in a lot of new warm clothing, including those for the clinic. Any recommendations for clinic clothing options are super helpful!
  12. Some schools have spring or summer admissions, but most admissions occur in the fall. If a program only has fall admissions, and you are applying now, then yes, you would have to wait until this coming fall to apply. As for rolling admissions, if you are looking into a school with fall admissions and their deadline is January 1st, for example, then sending in your completed application in November or early December often gives you a slight edge over other students applying, and in some schools you will hear back regarding whether or not you have been admitted before others have, if you have submitted early. For example, I applied to a school with rolling admissions on December 1st and heard back on January 30th, while others who applied later didn't hear back until February and March. I wouldn't apply to a program with fall admissions earlier than October-- I honestly don't think that buys you anything and it leaves more opportunity for parts of your application to be lost. Definitely don't apply before CSDCAS opens, which I believe is late August or early September (don't quote me on the date). Feel free to send any other questions my way!
  13. Yes, you can! However, some states may have additional requirements and might be more difficult to transfer. Some states require you to have a teaching license, which may require an extra exam and/or a specific type of placement (for example, to work in my state of choice, I will have to have a placement within a public school); some states, like NY, may require many additional requirements, so it can be a pain to transfer for your C's. But it's always doable! Just tell your placement office where you plan to end up, and you can look over those requirements together to make sure you meet them! This kind of thing is always better to figure out ahead of time.
  14. I don't think GPAs correlate to success rates. However, the fact that they are a small program that is just starting out could definitely affect praxis scores and completion rates. I think they are still trying to figure everything out.
  15. Wanted to bring this old thread back to life so other people could see this. I learned a lot just from reading this just now.
