  1. Hi everyone, I am changing career paths from dental to speech pathology. I applied to GA State and unsurprisingly, didn't get in. I have a 3.2 undergraduate GPA from Salem College (private women's college-rigorous) and my degree is a BS in Biology. I graduated in 2019. I have a lot of volunteer work under my belt, including: crisis center pharmacy tech, advanced genetics lab TA in college, Salvation Army donation collector, research and writing volunteer for a domestic violence shelter, "big buddy" at child bereavement camp. I have about 30 hours of observation hours at SLP clinics. I also have been a child caretaker (nanny) for over 2 years. What advice would you have for someone like me to increase my chances at getting into a grad program? I really do not wish to take CSD undergrad pre-reqs outside of the masters program itself (mostly for financial reasons). **Also, if you do highly recommend taking the CSD courses, do you know any online programs? Thank you SO much!!
  2. Hi everyone! Fingers crossed that I get some responses on this one !!!!!! I am in crunch time to make my decision I have about a week and a half......šŸ˜… Specifically looking for input on CUNY Brooklyn.. I don't know anyone who went to Brooklyn and would really really love any information that anyone could provide, even hearsay! I know Brooklyn is pretty exclusive, and I know this can often be contingent upon price, but given the requirements for admission I can only assume the program is pretty good as well! For me, the price difference between LIU and Brooklyn would be nearly negligible, as I would be living at home if I went to LIU, and would have to rent a place in Brooklyn. So I am really focused on hearing about the program I went to Undergrad at LIU and have had a truly AMAZING, supportive and individualized experience. The staff truly cares and I have formed amazing bonds with almost every professor in the Speech department. And that is absolutely not something to take for granted. But then again, given how exclusive the program at Brooklyn is, I don't want to pass up on an amazing opportunity. I just need to hear a bit about Brooklyn and others' experiences there, whatever they may be. Again, I really hope I get at least one reply on this I am desperate for some input! Thank you for your time for those of you who even read this! Looking forward to ( / hoping to!) hear from any of you soon! Thanks so much! Best, Nikki
  3. Hello everyone! So I'm currently completing my pre requisite courses to gain entrance into a SLP masters programs in my state. I graduated with a 2.57 GPA and it seems as though so far its all 3.0 GPA cut off. I'm completing 11 courses from USU that will transfer to these programs. So far I've gotten B+, while working full time and taking care of family during these moments. I wanted to write this and hear from others out there who have been in similar situations and what you decided to do. I am willing to put in the work to reach the criteria but is it a realistic goal for me to have? Did it work out for anyone out there? I am committed to becoming an SLP but I am also realistic. Thanks guys,
  4. I currently have a bachelor's in health science. After working at many schools as an instructional assistant, I found out about speech language pathology and completely fell in love with the field. It's hard for me to get any experience because of the virus. I was a substitute teacher for the special education programs in my area, but lost that job due to the virus as well. As of now, I work as an ABA behavior tech and I do get to work directly with children with autism. I've applied to 3 different schools, but I have been rejected to each one. My grades in the past weren't that great and my overall GPA is at a 3.1. Many graduate schools are also not requiring the GRE, which maybe could have helped me out if I tried to take the test. How could I increase my chances of getting in and become a stronger candidate? A part of me wants to give up, but this is something I really want to do and achieve. I've tried messaging the schools to see what I could have done better, but I have not received any feedback from them. I'm not sure where to go from here or what direction I should take. I would appreciate it if I could get some help.
  5. I was wondering typically when ENMU sends out their decisions? Iā€™m applying for Spring 2021! Anyone else?
  6. Hi everyone! I am a current undergrad in communication disorders and sciences and I am getting ready to apply to grad schools this Fall. I have a 3.8 GPA and some experience and strong letters of rec; however, I recently took the GRE and I scored horribly. With that being said, I am now looking into applying to schools that don't require the GRE. I would retake it but at this moment in time I don't have the money to pay for it. I was wondering if anyone can share the schools that for sure don't require the GRE. Thank You.
  7. Does anyone know if Baldwin Wallace's master's SLP program is still offering interviews? I haven't heard anything from them and I saw that interviews were done by February 15 last year. Thanks!
  8. Let me know if you guys know of any programs that... -Are less-competitive in general. -Don't require ANY letters of recommendation. -Don't require letters of recommendation be from professors. -Focus more on relevant to the field work and/or volunteer experience (over high GPA/GRE). Distance learning or on-campus, ANYwhere in the USA! Doesn't matter. TIA
  9. I am getting ready to apply to graduate programs for Speech Language Pathology. I am from Mississippi and am currently attending University of Southern Mississippi. I will apply here, the University of Memphis, University of Southern Alabama, and University of Tennessee Knoxville. (others pending) Right now, I have a 3.8 GPA and I am working to pull it up to a 3.9 by the time I graduate (two semesters left). I just took the GRE last week and made a 186 (143 verbal and 143 quantitative). I am planning on taking it again in hopes of pulling up my score, but I am not the best test-taker. I currently serve in leadership positions in the College of Health and am very active in my department and on campus. I also currently work on campus in the Office of Disabilities. My question is: Is my resume good enough for the schools I am considering applying to? What is your best advice to me as I prepare to apply for grad school? Is there anything I can add to my resume to make me a more valuable student? I have made myself familiar with edfind on ASHA's website, and have looked up the "requirements" for each of the schools I am applying for, and my GPA and GRE all fall in the range of scores accepted in previous years past (although my GRE is at the bare minimum). In addition, what advice can you share about preparing for the GRE? Before I took the test the first time, I bought a Kaplan book and online access code; I studied practically the entire book and I did numerous quizzes and practice tests. What other resources might help me improve my score? I would greatly appreciate any and all advice. Thank you, A curious undergraduate student
