  1. Hello! I'm pretty new here haha and I was wondering how many schools you applied to? I start applying for Grad schools this summer/fall for the fall 2021 application cycle. I currently have 7 schools o my list (See below) and was wondering if that's a good amount to apply to? Also, if you know any info about attending these schools, the surrounding area, etc, I'd love if you would drop a comment as well! Francis Marion University University of North Carolina: Greensboro Longwood University [currently attend here for undergrad] Gallaudet University University of Maryland Radford University University of Delaware
  2. Hello! I was accepted to the CSD Master's program at Teachers College Columbia University. It is my top school and I am very interested in the bilingual extension program, but it seems expensive to go there and live in the NYC area! For anyone who is in the program or who is an alumni of the program, is all that debt worth it? Did you apply for any scholarships or grants? How are you managing finances? Do you enjoy the program?
  3. Hey everyone! I recently got off the waitlist and have accepted an offer for attendance. I’ve seen there hasn’t been a group made? Anyone out there started the process, how do you feel? I’m from california and I’m so nervous and anxious because i have some prereqs to finish but I’m excited. Any places you have all looked? I’ve looked around Clovis and portales but not sure yet.
  4. I got accepted into the CDIS grad program at Eastern New Mexico. I was wondering how their program is and if anyone else had gotten in.
  5. Hi Everyone! For those who have accepted a position in ECU's program, has anyone made a FB group yet?
  6. Help! So I've applied to 10 grad schools for Speech Pathology because I was terrified that I was not going to get accepted anywhere, but so far, I have been accepted to 8 schools. (Still waiting to hear back from SJU and Hofstra). I know that this is a good problem to have, however, I feel so lost. I kept doubting that I would get in, and felt like the decision would be made for me based on my acceptances/rejections. If anyone has any input on any of these schools I would really appreciate it! I want to work in a school so preferably a college where I can get my TSSLD. So far Ive been accepted to: Iona College, Adelphi, Pace, Mercy, LIU Post, LIU Brooklyn, William Patterson and as of today, NYU- Steinhardt. I would appreciate all feedback/ information that anyone has on these programs! Thanks!
  7. Hi everyone, I had my interview for Chapman two weeks ago. Still havent heard anything. Didnt get an interview for CSULA and got waitlisted to sdsu just now. I’m seriously freaking out. Has anyone heard back from Chapman yet?
  8. Hi everyone! I applied to five programs for CSD/SLP, all in SoCal: SDSU, Redlands, CSULA, CSULB, and Chapman. I found out yesterday that I didn't get an interview for CSULA, but I did get one for Chapman and had it last week. I would like to see if others had heard back from CSULB, SDSU, or Redlands, or if people have heard an official admissions decision from Chapman. Let me know!!
  9. Anyone apply to the University of Delaware's Communication Sciences & Disorders program or anyone who is currently in the program?? Drop comments below!
  10. Hello everyone, I am kinda freaking out right now because idk if I will get accepted into an SLP Master's Program. I know that it's a very competitive field and I don't have the best statuses. Here are my stats, Overall GPA 3.3, Major GPA 3.5, GRE: 139V 142Q 3.0AW (I know its bad Dx). I am planning to retake the GRE one more time before August and hoping to get in the 150's (I've been using Magoosh and it's been helping. The practice tests say I would probably score 145-150, but I still have a month til my test). I currently live in Nevada and there's only one Master's program here. I am currently looking at these schools: Old Dominion, Hampton University, distance programs such as Nova and NYU Steinfield, Louisiana State University, Arizona State University, etc. If you applied or was accepted can you tell me how you like it and if I have a chance of being accepted. Thank you everyone~
  11. Hello, This is addressed to current and past students who have attended AND completed Eastern New Mexico's Masters of Communication Disorder's hybrid-program. If you have the same or similar questions please do not re-post question. If you have a different question addressed to this group feel free to add. Questions: What circumstances impacted your decision to attending ENMU? (i.e. family, affordability, distance, etc) How responsive are the faculty and the professors? If you had difficulty reaching them, what resources did you turn to? What was the most challenging aspect of the first semester? What were your thoughts on your practicum placements? If you were required to relocate, how far did you move? How do tests and finals work out? If you graduated, how prepared were you for your CF year and or your career as an SLP? Any other comments you may have on the program
  12. Hello Everyone, I was wondering what books you believe helped you with your studying for the GRE? Any you reccomend that helped you prepare? I keep reading reviews that some books are nothing like the exam. Also, what should I brush up on (for those of you who have taken it). What questions were the toughest? Thank you so much for you your time! ?
  13. Southern University in Baton Rouge has an April 15th deadline for their speech pathology masters program and it's a little easier to get accepted there.
  14. For anyone who hasn't been accepted into grad school for speech pathology, Southern University in Baton Rouge is an option. My understanding is they are accredited and accept applicants who may not be as competitive because of lower GPA and GRE scores. You can go to their website and get contact information. I've heard most people have a good chance of getting into their graduate program. They also have a later application deadline, April 15th. Good luck to everyone!
  15. I've seen on the results page some people post something like: "just checked the portal, says decision made: rejected" or "got an email to check the portal" What is this secret portal everyone talks about? Is it the place where I can log in to check the status of my application once I have submitted it? Like right now, one of my applications says Application Status: Submitted. Is this the place that is the "portal"? Will my application status change or is there another secret portal I don't know about? Someone posted a school updated their portal and that's how they found out their fate but I checked my status at the same school (the one I used as an example above) and nothing has changed. Thanks for the help! And sorry if this is confusing because I am confusing myself typing this out!
  16. I am wanting to email a thank you to my interviewers at a school following the interview I had yesterday, as I know this is good, but I am wondering if it will come off as strange if I essentially had to search for their e-mails? The people who interviewed me stated their names in the interview but I had to remember their names and search for their emails on the school's website in order to email them. Should I hold off or would it still be good to send it? I appreciate any opinions! Thanks.
  17. Does anyone know of SLP graduate programs that require an interview during the application process? It can be in person/phone/video chat. I only know of a few so far.
  18. Hi All! I know that the April 15th deadline is approaching. Has anyone made their final decisions yet? What were some of the factors in why you chose that school? Congrats everyone!
  19. Hello, I would like this to be a forum for you as an applicant, current student, or alumni of any Boston speech-language pathology programs to post your insight, experience, knowledge or advice comparing the schools. I know I am not the only one who applied to more than one school in the Boston area so I would like help on choosing which one to attend! (I have been accepted to MGH and Northeastern) but this can be for all 4 programs! Some questions include.. Why did you choose X program What kind of training / orientation is there prior to beginning clinic? How are clients paired with students? Do we decide on clinical placement site? Surviving without car? How are classes/workload? challenging but possible? Work life balance? Can you still enjoy boston? Describe typical day?? Do you feel comfortable with supervisors? Asking for help? Classmate interaction?
  20. Hi all! Does anyone know how the waitlist works at mercy? And do they have to wait until a specific date to take people from the waitlist? Any insight would be great! Thanks a bunch
  21. Is anyone thinking of going to UB? Is there a facebook group started yet?
  22. Hi all, I'm a little confused by the UT Dallas portal. It says my app is incomplete and awaiting my official transcript, but from what I've seen they only want your official transcript after you've been offered admission. Does everyone's portal say incomplete awaiting documents??
  23. I have applied to the ENMU SLP graduate program for admission in the Fall of 2016. I just received my waitlist letter. Does anyone have any information on how many are typically placed on the waitlist? Also, the letter included some information about the possibility of taking 9 graduate hours before formal admittance. Is this offered online or on campus, and would this increase my chances of being admitted in the next cycle, should I excel? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Hello all -- Like lots of folks around here, my undergrad was NOT in speech in hearing science. After working as an English/ESL teacher abroad, I bit the bullet, quit my full-time job (and left my health insurance behind) to enroll in a university an hour away from my home to take 26 credit hours worth of undergraduate communication sciences coursework. Here are the general equivalents to the courses I took: - Intro to Comm. Sciences - Speech and Hearing Science - Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech/Hearing Mechanism - Phonetics - Language Development - Phonological Disorders in Children - Articulation Disorders in Children - Intro to Audiology For some grad programs (Purdue, MGH, etc.), this general course listing seems to suffice. However, doing my hard research now on what "local" midwestern universities I can apply to, my options seem slim to none. Most programs require at least 2 more courses than I have to meet the minimum requirements and, well, with taking stats and physics at a local community college this spring, I am just about financially maxed out. Still need to visit my top schools and apply, of course. That CSDCAS stuff ain't cheap. Any current students or applicants out there apply to schools with a bit less rigorous standards on post bacc work? I realize a fleshed out "undergrad degree" makes an ideal applicant in a way, but for a lot of us adults, it's just not a feasible path to take. I've e-mailed the "I'm so close" universities on my list for their approval of reasonable equivalent experience. A few were cool with my listing of CSD courses. Several have yet to respond. For a few places, I'm a mere 1 credit hour short of meeting their requirements. I am however, currently working as an assistant director/early intervention developmental therapist at a multi-discipline therapy agency. I feel like my job/life experiences give me a leg up on intense graduate study, but I'm also trying to fit myself into MOST of the boxes CSD programs require. Would love to hear from some non-traditional SLP hopefuls/professionals. I'll be trolling the forums tonight in search of those types! Best of luck to all applying. The competition is intense! Other Stats: GPA: undergrad (French and Communication) 3.2, CSD: 4.0, Last 60: 3.9 GRE: V 157, Q 143 Graduate Programs on my Hit List: Purdue University MGH (Boston) St. Mary's (new program) University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Western Michigan University Wayne State (don't meet all post bacc requirements) Michigan State (don't meet all post bacc requirements)
