  1. Hi everyone! I applied to this school and I haven't heard anything back. Has anyone received anything? I haven't heard anything about this program on gradcafe, so if anyone has some insight please share!
  2. Has anyone heard from them recently? Starting to get worried. I technically applied in December but didn’t submit my personal statement till maybe a couple days before the deadline. I don’t think there’s really a way to check status through the application so should I call?
  3. Does anyone knows anything on this program (how competitive, reputable, quality of program, professors) I completed my undergrad in Louisiana and currently work as a SLP-Assistant back home in TX, and I want to know if the program is worth moving back to Louisiana to complete!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. Hi! I have read that some Louisiana schools gave preference to Louisiana residents. Does anyone know which schools they know for sure that does?
  7. I saw that, a few months ago, someone asked if anyone could say anything positive or negative about LSU English to help them make their decision. I can't, in good conscience, continue to avoid sharing my experiences at LSU in the event that I might be able to dissuade students with other options from attending. I'll jump right in. Attending LSU for English is probably the worst decision I have ever made for a number of reasons. 1--cronyism and favoritism is the order of the day. All decisions for favors, decent classes, good schedules, awards etc. are determined by whether or not you are liked by the current administration and staff people. This includes basics like getting the admin. assistant to enroll you for required hours so that you'll carry the correct number of hours to remain a TA. There is a list of people (physical list) showing who is liked and who is blacklisted from decent class schedules. 2--admin and staff (and yes, sometimes other graduate students) are openly abusive via email and sometimes in person. If you are sensitive or can't handle abusive language from your superiors, avoid this department. You shouldn't have to put up with abuse or end up in therapy or on pills or whatever because of the cruel culture of your PhD program. 3--racist, sexist, etc. Part of #2 encompasses the blatant racist, classist, and sexist culture of the department. In fact, at the end of last semester, a group of graduate students finally felt they had had enough of LSU English's racism, sexism, ableism, and every other form of discrimination you can possibly imagine and sent out an email manifesto to the entire department demanding change. A series of meetings with the Diversity Provost were held and I'm sorry to tell you, nothing has changed, and it won't change. Racism and other forms of discrimination are too deeply embedded in the department culture. I'm also sorry to say that the other graduate students take part. 4--not a single school year goes by that the department doesn't threaten to take our paychecks or tuition remission away from us. They find ways to justify it each time. If you are independently wealthy, are supported by your parents, or are not supporting your own family/children, this may not matter to you, but it causes stress to everyone else. 5--LSU (the university) has been the recipient of deep, deep cuts from the state each school year. That alone would make me too scared to begin a program here now, just aside from the problems in the English department. 6--Generally disgusting state of the actual building. This might be minor, but Allen Hall (English building) is regularly infested with rodents and cockroaches and floods often. Allen Hall is not ADA compliant, either--FYI In general, I do not have a single positive thing to say about LSU English. People are cruel, vindictive, a student has almost no recourse, and nothing ever changes. Also, if you are Rhet/Comp, avoid. The Rhet program has been killed. They claim to have one, but all the faculty are on the point of retiring and no attempt to hire new faculty is made. If it helps you to know this, multiple English graduate students have, in recent years, died here from substance abuse. These students were the victims of cruelty and bullying. The graduate student culture is built on bullying--people here are not friendly. Maybe these issues are all common to graduate programs, but my other friends in English across the country have no stories like these. You might think I'm simply a malcontent or had a unique bad experience, and I don't care if that is what you think--everything I've said is true. I hope this helps your decision.
  8. I wanted to start this post so we can track the speech pathology programs in the south. There are so many threads regarding the northern schools, it gets tiring sorting through all of the different posts. This thread is for southern school programs ONLY (ex. schools states like Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and the Carolinas).
  9. Louisiana resident looking for MSW programs nearby. Have researched some but are looking for reviews on schools that others have attended such as University of North Dakota online, Stephen F Austin, Lsu, etc. Also what do you think about online MSW programs?
