Hey, I'm curious to hear everyone's stories too!
I had considered both SLP and Audiology when I was planning my undergrad degree and I actually thought I wanted to pursue audiology until I volunteered in a speech and hearing clinic. When I was at this clinic they told me that you'll know pretty quick which career you will be a better fit for and it was very true! I learnt so much about CIs and all kinds of hearing aids but I definitely found myself more drawn to the processes and techniques used by the SLPs. They encouraged me to judge what fit best to my personality and I am so glad that I had that support in making my decision. After being in that clinic and being 99% sure SLP was for me, I volunteered in a private clinic where I saw lots of treatment for apraxia and language therapy for kids on the spectrum. I also volunteered at a hospital in acute care and stroke rehab and absolutely loved it. Between all three of the places I observed/volunteered, I became 150% sure it was what I wanted to do!
Another big plus for me was that there are lots of SLP jobs in rural areas and I plan to live rurally when I am done school. The list goes on - there are lots of amazing things about the career but those are my key points!
