  1. Hey Cece93, Thanks for the suggestion! I went ahead and invested in the 5lb Manhattan prep book because I have seen so many good reviews for it. I also purchase the ETS books since the test materials are created by them. I have only been looking into in state schools or online schools (because I am concerned about living expenses elsewhere) but, to improve my odds, I have started considering out of state schools. Thanks again for all the helpful advice!
  2. Hello Shecan, Thanks so much for your input! I completed my undergrad program a couple of years ago (a BA in Psychology). I know a 2.8 cumulative GPA is not high enough to qualify me for any of the SLP programs. However, I am hoping to bolster my chances of being considered for some of the schools of my interest by working hard on my post bacc classes to obtain As. I also want to make sure I have a strong personal statement, GRE , and letters of recommendation. What are your thoughts on my game plan?
  3. Cece93 you don't know how helpful your advice has been! I intend to follow the route you suggested and work toward a strong GPA for my post bacc courses and a solid personal statement (I am also working on my GRE scores). I will especially heed your advice to reach out to my top schools. I guess I should also look into expanding the number of schools I apply to. How many schools would you recommend applying to?
  4. Hello Everyone, How do I ensure that I am an ideal candidate for Rush University, NYU Steinhardt, and St. Xavier University (as well as other online MA SLP programs)? My undergrad cumulative GPA (non CSD major) was 2.8. I know that most programs require a minimum GPA of 3.0. However, I have yet to take the required core courses as well as the GRE. I am wondering if taking these courses through a leveling program will bolster my cumulative GPA or if I have to face the fact that I would need to take a 2nd BS degree to be considered. Thanks for everyone's help and input through this p
  5. Thank so much for your response! I think I need to take Stats (I took a stats class in methods of behavioral science to satisfy my psych degree requirement but, I don't think it falls in line with the Asha requirements). I need to take all the core SLP courses. However, I am concerned about my cumulative GPA for undergrad (which was a 2.8). Do you think the leveling courses will be taken into consideration to bolster my GPA or do universities look at that separately? In fact, I am concerned that I might have to get a 2nd BS to be considered as a candidate for Rush University, St. Xavier, and N

  7. Hello Everyone! I hope all is well and everyone continues to remain as safe as can be! I am at a crossroads with whether I should just complete the required courses through a leveling program or get a second BA in SLP before applying to the MA/MS program. With the leveling program, I would have to pay upfront as financial aid isn't a factor. I might also have to take more classes than I need to fulfill the requirements of the various master's programs I am looking into. However, with a 2nd BA, I don't think I would have that issue as the prereq requirements would already be satisfie
  8. Hello JennSed! Sorry for the uber late reply! Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a response to these questions. I think there is a lot of wonderful advice you offered! In fact, I have already taken some steps to connect with SLPs in my area and conduct informational interview (since I can't conduct volunteer work at this time). However, I am at a crossroads with whether I should just complete the required courses through a leveling program or get a second BA in SLP before applying to the MA/MS program.

  9. Hello Everyone, I am interested in a career in SLP but, I don't know how to decided which schools are the best fit for me or how and where I go to take the prerequisites necessary for the programs (I am going back to school after several years, I have a BA in Psychology so this career change is huge for me). I guess I am looking for advice on the best ways to start this career journey given my current situation. Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!
