  1. I’m a bilingual SLPA applying to Florida schools, so I focused on the field’s need for bilingual and bicultural therapists as the theme of my application. My question is: are second languages significant in applications for slp grad programs in general, or only for programs that specialize in bilingual and multicultural therapy?
  2. Desperate need for advice!

    I have my bachelor's degree in Spanish and speech pathology (double major). I was accepted to grad school for slp, and I attended a year, however, I was going through a really difficult period in my life and I ended up not being able to continue in the program because after re-taking a class, I got a C. I know that I was completely unfocused, and if I could take it all back and start it over, of course I would. I then took some special education classes after that, and did a semester of student teaching, which stands as an Incomplete on my transcript. I did fine in my teaching and I had all my assignments turned in, except the final project was not uploaded to the internet. I am going to contact the school about getting credit for the student teaching, but needless to say, there is a sufficient amount that I am not too proud of on my record. My GPA cumulative is 3.3 and my GPA in speech is 3.1. My GRE is 147 Q and 153 V and 4 AW. I have been working as an English language learner paraprofessional in an elementary school where I do small 40 minute reading groups (that focus on phonics, decoding, or comprehension) with kids who's primary language is Spanish. I have also been volunteering at a Conductive Learning Center in a classroom with students that have cerebral palsy. I also do tutoring, and I am going to volunteer at the local Hispanic Center. I am going to apply to grad school again and I am wondering what my chances are of getting in? Any tips on where to apply or what I could do to get in? I applied to one school a couple years ago, and did not get accepted. And since I already have tons in loans, I can't really afford to go anywhere in the country where I would pay DOUBLE. I already owe an astronomical amount, so I am mainly looking at schools that are all online, or the ones in my state. The funny thing is, I have read so much about how Spanish bilingual speech pathologists are in SUCH GREAT NEED- and HERE I AM, yet I feel I BARELY have a chance! I must say, I really don't get that. If they are in such HIGH NEED, you would think the field would WANT to scoop me up- that they almost have a DUTY TO DO SO, even if my marks aren't stellar. Is it hopeless? And this will probably have to be my last shot at being an SLP. I will have to move on, and choose something else that I don't completely want to do, so I can get a real paycheck.
  3. Does anyone know anything about ASU's multilingual/multicultural program (PrISMS) this year? Their webpage (https://chs.asu.edu/programs/schools/department-speech-and-hearing-science/multilingual-multicultural-program) lists a deadline of 6/15/17 to apply, but mentions that they only got a grant for 30 people and it started last year. Also, are the spots in the program limited, or just the funded spots? (i.e. Is anyone in the program without being funded?) As someone wanting to work with multicultural populations, I can't see myself committing to a program before knowing if I'll be able to get those classes and clinic experiences. Anyone else in the same situation? I'll be emailing the department too, but I wanted to see if anyone here had information.
  4. I'm currently applying as an out-of-field (psychology and Spanish double major) student to graduate programs that offer 1.) the opportunity to complete prerequisites upon admission and 2.) bilingual opportunities, whether that be through a specific certificate program or they verified that they offer bilingual placements. I obviously have no idea where I'm going to get accepted, if anywhere, but since I won't have much time and all the schools are far from me I want to have an IDEA of where I want to go and what I want to base my decision on once I know where I have been admitted. How important should I make each of the following factors in my decision? 1. Location (I'm from PA and go to school in OH, so I won't be close no matter what, but I'm thinking more in terms of where I'd be most happy) 2. Ranking (does this matter for SLP grad school at all?) 3. If they have a separate 3 yr program vs. just allowing me to take prerequisites with undergraduates (I think the former would be better, personally) 4. If they have a separate bilingual certificate program vs. having bilingual placement opportunities (again, the former would be better I think, but not 100% necessary) Thanks in advance! My family members didn't go to grad school so I'm not really sure what's most important.
  5. Hi all! I know you can't 100% accurately 'chance' someone, but I don't really know how competitive I sound overall. I just want to make sure I get into at least one school is all I care about! I want to specialize in bilingual kids. GRE Verbal: 160 GRE Quant: 155 Writing: don't have score yet but I think I'll get at least a 3.5 or 4 Psychology and Spanish majors both have a 3.9 GPA, overall I have a 3.85 Relevant experience: tutoring Latino-American kids, research assistant for a preschool study on inhibition (going to start this fall), observations right before I started college of about 10 SLPs at one location a few times a week for two months, observations of another SLP a few months ago for two days, did my own research on second language development with the help of two professors at Pitt right before starting college (it wasn't published or anything but still good experience), and this summer I was a full time camp counselor. I've also had two leadership positions in Greek life throughout college and I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina for a summer. Haven't asked for letters of rec yet but they will most likely be from a psych professor who used to be my advisor and has had me in several classes, the psych professor that's leading the research I'll be starting this fall who has also had me twice in class, and a Spanish professor that I've had like 5 times that knows me very well and who got me into the tutoring. I plan to apply to: University of Virginia, Marquette University, University of Arizona, University of Colorado Boulder, UT Dallas, Indiana University, University of Minnesota, New Mexico State University, and Emerson College. All of these schools offer three year programs for out of field applicants and have either told me they offer bilingual placements or offer a separate bilingual specialization. Thanks in advance!!!
  6. Hello! I am graduating with a Master's degree in speech-language pathology and happen to be bilingual. I am interested in pursuing a certificate offered by the TC Bilingual Extension Institute and would really appreciate impressions from people who've attended the bilingual extension or applied. I would like to know how selective the application process is (especially for non-degree seekers), what the lectures are like, and how have the seminars benefited you clinically and/or professionally. Are the lectures mostly geared towards the educational setting or are they applicable to other SLP settings? And finally, is the emphasis on Spanish-English bilinguals or multicultural clients in general? Thank you!!
  7. Hi! I'm a junior psychology and Spanish major with a 3.84 GPA. I haven't taken the GRE yet but I will in July and I think I'll get around average, hopefully a little bit above, but I'm not that great at standardized tests (I'm studying REALLY hard). I want to apply to bilingual speech-language pathology programs, but I also need a program that has prerequisites. I think I have somewhat of a chance to get into these schools, but I'm not certain and it terrifies me how there are only 8. These are all schools with a bilingual emphasis program AND prerequisites where you do not have to reapply after taking prerequisites. Columbia Indiana University New Mexico State University Marquette University of Minnesota Arizona State University of Redlands University of Arizona University of Virginia seems to have a bilingual focus but it's in the works so I'm not sure if I'll apply there. Should I also apply to schools like these, that I would apply to take prerequisites, and then not be guaranteed a spot in the graduate program afterwards (post-baccalaureate programs)? I just feel like that's a HUGE disadvantage, especially if I don't get into the grad program, because other grad programs may not accept other schools' prerequisites. These are just programs that I know of that have bilingual programs that I could potentially do after the prerequisites if accepted as a grad student- I know that there are other post-baccalaureate programs. Florida International University Portland State University University of Texas at Austin Thank you so much in advance! I can give more info about myself if needed, I just didn't want my post to be ridiculously long.
