  1. @AnnaM The turnaround was only a few weeks for me (from full submission to acceptance phone call/email) but I applied for the May 2020 cohort.. which I think they're still sending out decisions for. So they could be prioritizing those students first, then Fall 2020 students? I'm not really sure though since it's rolling admission. I would bet they'd get back with you soon (if they haven't by now). GOOD LUCK!
  2. Sure! Cumulative GPA is 3.89, CSD GPA is 4.0. GRE was 149 Q, 150 V, and 4.5 AW. I have 3.5 years experience as an SLP-A in Texas-- home health, ages 2-12 within multicultural and low-income families. Also a little international work as well. I graduated with my BS in 2014. I felt I wrote a strong personal statement, and had two professors + a supervisor write letters of rec for me. Hope that helps! GOOD LUCK!
  3. This is so helpful-- thank you for taking the time to answer! I've heard that from many NYU students-- that they LOVE the program, only complaint is cost. Which like you, many feel are worth it. Thanks again!
  4. @KEIM Yes, on their website and information it says they have that requirement.. but I guess since my grades were high and I've maintained an SLP-A license since 2014, they were approved. I agree with @MadisonMachelle -- I think it's a case by case basis.. up to the discretion of the admissions committee!
  5. YAY another mom! Yes, I did notice that about Baylor.. however I found out recently that with Baylor I'd have to retake ALL of my foundational courses (although I got As in them, they're over 5 years old....) and Emerson is not. Waiting to hear from NYU regarding this. It's also the same price comparatively as NYU and I've been favoring NYU's program. So I'll respond to Baylor tomorrow that I won't be attending. Down to two! Hoping for good news for you!
  6. I've heard ENMU has a great program and is super affordable, however I can't leave my hubby & baby for 4 months and he's got a business in our city.. so unfortunately it's a no-go for us 😕
  7. @bilingualspeechlife I'm a mom too-- that's also why my preference is online programs. It's so encouraging to hear I'm not the only mama dreaming to get a SLP graduate degree. Emerson was also MUCH quicker getting back to me with a decision.. they were the first. NYU was a few weeks after, and I just heard from Baylor this week. My exact timeline is the comment above Which program are you favoring so far? I'm rooting for you-- GOOD LUCK!
  8. @KEIM Baylor and NYU are pretty comparable in pricing, Emerson is the least expensive. I'm tempted to make a final decision based on that too.. And my application timeline is below! @speechie264 I submitted my application on November 20th, sent updated transcripts December 17th and got the call that I was accepted on January 21st. I submitted all three applications pretty much the same day, and Baylor was for sure the slowest and the admissions counselor was in contact the least. They've been nice and helpful, but just not as efficient with the application process. Hope they get back to you soon! GOOD LUCK to both of you-- I hope you get in, keep me updated!!
  9. @speech97Congrats on completing your first semester! Glad to hear it's been good for you so far.. I've heard great things about the professors and know one recent grad that felt her education was very high quality (her only complaint was cost). How many hours per week do you normally dedicate towards studying and classes? Also, I've read that NYU focuses more on theory/research than other programs.. do you feel that's true? That's kind of what draws me towards the program.. just so worried if the cost is actually worth it. THANK YOU responding and being willing to answer questions!
  10. Hi all, I've recently been accepted to three online programs for Speech Language Pathology: Emerson College, NYU-Steinhardt, and Baylor University for the May 2020 cohort. YAY!! The obvious con is that all three are super expensive.. but I'm willing to make the investment for flexibility and quality programs. I am waiting to hear back from a few other programs, but wanted some feedback regarding these three in the meantime. Are there any graduates from any of these programs that could weigh into my decision? Good or Bad? Or, has anyone heard any information that would be helpful to decision making? I feel like I've researched the whole internet looking for ratings/opinions but I know these programs are fairly new so I haven't found much. I'm trying to keep this short and sweet but open to giving more info if needed. I didn't think I'd be accepted into all 3.. so I thought it would be helpful to weigh in some opinions. BIG DECISIONS-- HELP! Programs: NYU-Steinhardt (online), Emerson College (online), Baylor University (online), Lamar University, University of Houston, University of St. Augustine (online), Our Lady of the Lake University Applied, Accepted, Interview, Waitlisted, Denied
  11. Hi! I applied to Speech@Emerson for the May 2020 cohort, interviewed in late November and received the news that I was accepted on December 20th! My admissions counselor called to tell me the news, then followed up with an email. My cumulative GPA was 3.8, GRE scores 149, 150, 4.5. I worked as an SLP-A for 3 years before applying. I felt I wrote a strong personal statement and had good LORs so I think that helped too. I'm currently undecided if I'll attend, awaiting a few more schools so I can know all my options before deciding. GOOD LUCK to you both, it seems to be a really great program!!
