  1. Hi everyone! I recently just graduated with a bachelors in Speech Language Pathology. I finished with an overall 3.1 GPA and a 2.8 major GPA. I love this field so much that I can’t see myself doing anything else. My huge concern is do I have the chance of getting into graduate school with the GPA that I have. Has anyone been accepted to graduate school with a low GPA or know ways to increase my chances of getting accepted? Thank you! xoxo
  2. Hi everyone, this is my first-time post on GradCafe. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations/comments on my application case. My Background international student graduated from a state-university with a bachelor degree in biology in 3 years, GPA 3.17 did 1-year research (without an independent projects) in neuroscience, did not like it graduated from an ivy-league with a master degree in biotechnology, GPA 3.24 (btw, didn’t worth to do a master in biotech) did 1-year research with an individual project in developmental biology during the graduate study, loved it working in an immunology based biotech company for almost two years, loved this field My Prep personal statement: done, very research-dense with a clear career goal, did not explain why my gpa is low recommendation letter: I can guarantee one of them will be strong with a big name, one will be generic with a big name GRE: the program doesn’t require GRE anymore, I did mine 5 years ago, and it’s 170/170, 154/170, happy to retake it if it’s really important. school choices: 4 tops ranking from 5-15, 4 safe schools ranking from 30-80 I decided to pursue a PhD degree in immunology at the beginning of this year because I’d like to learn more in this fascinating field and eventually lead my own projects in either academia or industry. I think immunology is a field that combines basic research and a lot of clinical applications, which is very promising. My questions are: Should I aim lower? Any chances for a fellowship offer? What can i do to build a stronger case before application? Thanks in advance for your help!
  3. Hello, I wanted to see what schools people recommend for graduate program in speech language pathology that look at more than just GPA and GRE. MY GPA is not competitive. My GRE scores are very low. I may retake them. I have a lot of experience. This round I applied to: NAU- summers program NOVA Chapman University Idaho State University Eastern New Mexico University .
  4. Hi there, Last year I graduated and received a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and I also minored in Child and Adolescent Development. Unfortunately, I have a GPA lower than 2.5, mainly due to serious illnesses I experienced during my time at and also housing was an issue. Now looking back I should've taken the time off to get well properly but I just had that mentality that I could. As many of us in this field know that my GPA is unexceptional for most Grad programs so I was thinking of doing an SLPA program. I am curious if there is anybody out there who has a similar experience or knows someone. Since I've graduated I've been working currently, I am an RBT/ Lead BI at my job, and also completed an Assistive Technology program. Now getting better from an accident (another added to the list), I feel ready to endeavor again. So I am reaching out to anybody who has gotten to an SLPA program, Grad school and did it with a low GPA. Thank you for reading this
  5. Hello everyone! I've seen a few posts similar to this one, but I want to explain my situation as well as get some any feedback/encouragement I will be entering my senior year this fall at San Diego State University and I am pursuing a B.A. in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences with minors in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies and Cultural Proficiency. I currently have a major GPA of 2.885 and an overall GPA of 3.32. Ya pretty low I just had some personal circumstances, and Audiology at my school is RIDICULOUSLY hard. Also, my highest grad I ever go in a major class was a B+. I've just heard that the program at SDSU is one of the top in the nation, so that's why it's so hard. I know a lot of other people in my classes struggled as well... But I'm trying my best to stay positive! I can bring them both up a little bit if the upcoming fall grades will be included. As for extracurricular activities I am highly involved in my Christian fellowship and in my co-ed service organization, and I have held multiple positions in both. From the service organization I have tons of volunteer hours. I also have a lot of job experience.. nothing related exactly to the field but I have a desk job at school and have had lots of experience with customer service. I have talked to my SLHS undergraduate advisor and some other students in the field.. advice so far I've heard is to look for schools that have a lower GPA requirement and have an interview process. All this being said, does anyone have suggestions on schools I should apply to? Or any other tips in general? TBH the whole application process seems so cut throat and scary, but I hope someone can just take me Any advice, tips, encouragement, etc. is greatly appreciated. Thank you ❤️
  6. Hey all, Thank you in advance for the advice. I am asking a question for my girlfriend. She is applying to MPH programs with a low GPA 3.2 and ok gre scores. 152Q and 159V. She has 5 years of international work experience peace corps, ESL teaching, research in health. What are her chances of getting into Harvard, Columbia, Hopkins, or Yale for their MPH programs??? Also, I am having trouble finding a thread for this year's MPH applicant statistics so feel free to post your stats in the comments: GPA 3.2 GRE: 152Q 159V other relevant factors:
  7. Hello everyone, I am unapologetically paranoid about graduate school admissions. My undergraduate grades fluctuated quite a bit. I attended a community college for two years receiving a 3.4 GPA. I then transferred to a top 75 liberal arts college where I received a 3.2 GPA. My total undergraduate GPA works out to be a 3.3 which is not very good for more competitive programs in international development/public policy. I was hoping that I could get your feelings on my chances at admissions at Columbia SIPA and John's Hopkins SIAS. Other things to consider. I served in the Peace Corps in Africa for two years Taught in Asia for 1.5 years. Conducting research in Central America from July 2017-July 2018 I won and declined a Fulbright ETA grant. In total, I will have 4.5 years of international work experience before my program begins. My brother is a current undergraduate student at Hopkins and is researching at SIAS. I think that I will have rock solid letters of recommendation from undergraduate professors. I completed three internships during my undergrad and work 20+ hours per week. Tell me what you think.
  8. Hey Everyone, I need some realistic input of my chances of getting into a speech pathology (slp) program! Since graduating almost 2 years ago I've.. taught English in 2 countries, (2 months in one, 8 months in another) worked as an early intervention associate, behavior therapist, ABA therapist in 2 schools and home aba therapist, I also volunteer weekly teaching English, speak 2 languages and am improving my Spanish basically I've dedicated all my time (after graduating) working with individuals through 1:1 therapy and mentoring to get all the experience I can to be a better SLP i feel my resume & experience are great what I lack... my gpa: 2.9, gre: in the 140's & writing is 4 my letters of rec will be written by an hdfs prof,an slp who supervised me & teacher I worked w/abroad (teaching english) I'm applying to schools in CT(local), NY, RI & NJ but it scares me so much that I won't get accepted because of my low gpa.. do I have a chance of acceptance? should I apply anyways? retake classes?
  9. I am trying to gauge admissions outcomes for the upcoming admissions cycle for MA programs in international development and affairs.

  11. Hi, I was wondering if there any schools that anyone has gotten into that accepted a GPA between a 3.3-3.4? Was your GRE high? Any suggestions for me? I'll be applying next school year, but my advisor doesn't think I can retake anything to help my GPA (even though it have one C+ and one D). If not do you have suggestions on what I could do with my undergrad in SLPA? Thanks for your help!
  12. Hello! I am currently finishing my undergrad degree in biology and I have a few summer classes to finish with, but does anyone here know any postbacc online programs in new jersey that i could apply to for the fall that are fairly easy to get into? I have a pretty low gpa because I majored in biology but i was wondering if i do really well in the prereqs for SLP during my postbacc if I have a better chance of getting into a masters program?
  13. I'm doing a double major in Microbiology and Genetics and I have a 2.3 GPA. Even though my GPA is so low I want to go to grad school for Developmental & Reproductive Biology. I have had a lot of experience in research since I had multiple internships and jobs working at the veterinary school, zoos, genetics laboratories, etc. In addition, in all my laboratory courses I have passed with A's but in other courses like chemistry and math I have done poorly. I was wondering what are my real chances into getting into a school program even if I get a real high school in my GRE and have good recommendation letters. And if so, which schools do you recommend (similar programs).
