  1. My BA is in linguistics, so I'm trying to gain information on what kind of prerequisites I need in order to apply to a master's program in speech language pathology. Each school's individual requirements are pretty straightforward but, so far, every school has given me a different answer as to what exactly the ASHA requirements are. In terms of the general prerequisites (social science, statistics, sciences, etc) I'm good to go. However in terms of the SPA courses, some schools are telling me that Intro to Hearing Sciences (or similar) is an ASHA requirement but some schools are telling me that I don't need it, which obviously doesn't make sense because if it's an ASHA requirement, shouldn't all schools require it? Besides coursework, are there any other requirements besides 25 hours of clinical observation? I'm trying to figure out everything on my own and since every program is giving me different answers as to what is and is not required, I'm afraid I will find out too late that I am missing something and not have enough time to complete it before the program starts. (I am aiming for an August 2021 start date and am starting my prerequisite coursework this fall) I would so appreciate any information or tips, and to speak with someone who went into SLP from an out-of-field BA. Thanks!
  2. Hello. I am planning to apply to graduate programs for Spring 2020. I am an out of field student and am hoping to stay around the Texas/Oklahoma area. I have found the UTD program which offers leveling courses in combination with the masters courses and was wondering if there are any other programs that are like this? Thanks
  3. I'm an out of field student (B.A. Linguistics and French 2015) and I'm not really sure the best way to go about this. Should I cold-call? Should I email? Is there a standard format for this? I'm taking leveling courses in the Fall and Spring at UT Austin but I have a 5 week period in the summer where my schedule is basically open and I'd like to get a head start on observation hours. Any and all advice is appreciated! I have an advising appointment tomorrow so I'm also going to bring it up then.
  4. 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!!!
  5. Hi, I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration this past June 2016 and am considering a career in Speech Pathology after finding out more about it by my sister in law who is a SLPA. It is something I am seriously considering but there are also limitations because I do not know where to start. I live in Orange County and would be commuting to school so the only schools that interested me were Cal State LA, Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Dominguez Hills. I know Chapman would be way too expensive since it is a private school. I just do not know which route to take since it there is an overload of information. I just finished applying to CSULA and CSUF for Fall 2017. I am looking to volunteer next year with something speech related but just need advice on what the best route to take is. Thanks
