  1. It just started up last year and there are four courses listed (intro to language science, phonetics, hearing science, and anatomy and physiology of speech). The coordinator says to hope to open up all the classes within the next year as long as demands are met. You can take whichever courses you need as long as they are available They are 8-week long online courses. SDSU's graduate program (not to be confused with the essentials) is known to be #1 in California and #24 in the nation. It doesn't require application, but it doesn't guarantee acceptance into their graduate program. I'm not quite sure if I should do the essentials program or just apply for postbacc program. My GPA isn't the highest, so this seems like a good option, but I don't know when all the classes will be available... and I don't know if all the classes that will become available will fulfill the prerequisites and/or qualifications for other graduate programs. I have at least three possible choices: 1. Keep applying to Post-baccs. 2. Take courses through SDSU SLP Essentials and hope they'll offer all the courses. If they do, eventually apply for graduate school. 3. Take courses through SDSU SLP Essentials and continue to apply for postbaccs. (In this situation, will the classes I already took be taken off of the list that I need to take in the postbacc?) Please let me know what opinions you have on my situation. If you have any suggestions, or if you would like to share your own experiences, I'd be happy to read them. Thanks! Click here for information on the SDSU SLP Essentials Program
  2. SUNY Fredonia 2017

    Just wondering if there is anyone else on here going to Fredonia September 2017! I am having a hard time finding anyone! I would really like a roomie!
  3. I got put on the waiting list for Pacific U's SLP masters program. Anyone else? I'm curious how many there are. Also, they said they don't disclose wait list positions which makes it harder to know if I should wait it out or not. Anyone else have this concern?
  4. SLP Help with Decision

    I was wondering if anyone had advice (pros and cons) on the following Speech Language Pathology programs. I am trying to make my decision between the following programs: SUNY New Paltz, Queens College and LIU Post
  5. April 15 resolution

    I was just accepted into a graduate program that follows the april 15th resolution, what exactly does this mean? If I accept this offer then get off the waitlist at a preferred school does this mean I am not allowed to rescind my acceptance or just ask their permission? The april 15th resolution states: "Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this Resolution. In those instances in which a student accepts an offer before April 15 and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15. However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student not to accept another offer without first obtaining a written release from the institution to which a commitment has been made. Similarly, an offer by an institution after April 15 is conditional on presentation by the student of the written release from any previously accepted offer. It is further agreed by the institutions and organizations subscribing to the above Resolution that a copy of this Resolution or a link to the URL should accompany every scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, and assistantship offer." Thanks in advance!
  6. MGHIHP Speech Path?

    Hi everyone! Like many of you, I'm having a really hard time making a decision. MGH was originally my top choice. I have always been really impressed by its clinical affiliations, on campus clinic, and of course its amazing reputation. However, I noticed that MGH requires about 20 more credits than the other schools and requires an extra semester of classes. Many of its semesters also require 6 or 7 classes as opposed to 3 like many of the other schools do. I wanted to know if you enjoyed your experience, and whether you found the work load to be overwhelming. Did you find these extra classes to be beneficial in your placements? I have heard some stories of other girls in the program who were mentally and emotionally drained by MGH's demanding workload. Although I love MGH, I can't help but wonder whether I would be slightly less stressed out at another program in Boston. If anyone is currently at MGH or went to MGH or had a friend at MGH, I was wondering what your opinion on this was. Is the workload crazy? Is it manageable? Did you like it? Thank you so much in advance!!
  7. James Madison Speech 2017

    Hello! I have applied to the 2017 DVLE Speech Language Pathology program at JMU. I am anxiously waiting to hear if i have been accepted or not! I am a practicing SLPA and have just been rejected from WKU online program. Was wondering if anyone has heard and what GRE/GPA looks like! Fingers crossed!
  8. undergraduate GPA's

    I was wondering if anybody knows if grad schools take into consideration where you went to get your Bachelor's. For example, if someone gets a 3.8 GPA at a lower ranked school versus someone who gets a 3.4 GPA at a higher ranked school. Would they take the person who got a 3.8 at a lower ranked school over the person who got a 3.4 at a higher ranked school? 0

  11. CSDCAS GPA

    Hello everyone. Question. I just submitted my CSDCAS to 11 different schools. Today my calculated gpa was posted and I was a little caught off guard. I read all the FAQ's but afraid that my GPA is much lower than the work I have put in since becoming a major in CSD. Since I am a transfer student, my GPA did not transfer, only the credits did. My freshman year was not the best and I got 2 C's as an Education major. Those C's arereally affecting my calculated GPA on the CSDCAS along with a few classes in the major that I retook as a CSD major that are calculated into this new GPA My question is do people know if schools look at the last 60 credits? Or look at the overall GPA and use that as an accurate measurement? Feeling nervous if I should apply to more schools outside of the CSDCAS. Thoughts?
  12. Hello everyone! If you are planning on applying to ENMU for their CDIS graduate program, you may or may not already be aware that you will have to be on-campus for your first semester. With that being said, if you are looking for on-campus housing for the Spring 2017 semester, I am looking for someone to take over my lease for the Spring 2017 semester. I am staying at San Juan Villages, an apartment community right across the street from the speech clinic! Super convenient and close by- and rent is only $480 a month including utilities, gas, electric, EVERYTHING! If you are interested, or would like more information, feel free to send me a message.
  13. Has anyone heard back from UCF for Spring 2017 Speech Pathology grad school?
  14. Hello, I'm pretty new to this forum, I was hoping for some input/help I'm planning on applying to grad school for speech language pathology for the Fall 2017 year, and I'm just freaking out about applications and GRE scores. I have a 3.731 GPA but my GRE scores are god awful. It's pretty embarrassing to even share my scores (mostly due to the math). To be fair, I did not study as hard as I should have for the GRE. I'm planning on taking it a second time around and I've been putting in major hours (Memorized 500 vocab words + Magoosh vocab). However, it seems my Achilles heel is the quantitative reasoning. I know people say they are "bad at math", but I just do not understand math.. I am able to understand if I walk through the solution, but it seems like when the problem is rearranged in any way or given to me different I just blank out. I've always been this way and have been placed in remedial math when I was younger. It's just the hardest subject for me, and I hate that I have a hard time understanding it. I wish I could afford an online GRE course, but it just is not an option for me. I have been practicing diligently with the Manhattan Prep + Vocabulary I mentioned before, and also The Princeton Review: Cracking the GRE. Having limited understanding of math (I could probably do the simple problems..), does anyone have any suggestions or think it's worth it to keep trying with the math? Or should I not worry about the math and just focus mainly on my strong subjects (writing, reading, text completion)? Any answers would be appreciated!
  15. Did anyone else here apply to UH? I am still anxiously waiting to hear back from them and was wondering if anyone else was too! Also, wondering if anyone knows anything about this program, I have heard mixed things about the program and am pretty curious but really want to go here!
  16. Hey Y'all, I'm new to the forum and was hoping y'all could give me a realistic idea on my chances on getting into an SLP program. A little about myself, I graduated from the University of South Carolina a semester early with a BS in Public Health. The school gpa I graduated with was a 3.52 (straight A's my last semester really helped ), I do not know what the csdcas gpa was but I think it was somewhere around a 3.35. I bombed two courses throughout college and retook them with good results. I worked for a senator for 1 1/2 years, worked in a neurolinguistics lab my last semester, was an assistant baseball coach, and worked for a public works department for a few summers. I was also my fraternity treasurer in 2014 and president in 2015. My GRE scores are at or above what my schools are looking for: Verbal: 154, 63rd percentile; Quantitative: 155, 60th percentile; Writing 4.5/6, 80th percentile. I applied to: Northern Arizona University University of Montana Western Carolina Appalachian State U of SC I couldn't afford to apply to any more schools unfortunately. Thank you for any feedback. -J
  17. Revising you personal Statement for a SLP graduate program I highly recommend buying this book because it has awesome tips and examples of letters other student essays. Perfect Personal Statements by Mark Alan Stewart Here are some great tips for revising you personal statement, if you are reapplying or applying for the first time. What should you write about? This issue forced me to procrastinate forever! I felt like everyone had such a good story about why they wanted to become a SLP. Some girls in my undergrad classes had children with autism, siblings with hearing impairments, or a grandparent with a tracheostomy. I just loved the healthcare field and happen to stumble across SLP as a career choice, but that doesn’t make for a moving or inspirational story for the admissions committee to read. This book gives a few good topic choices, but one really stuck out for me. I wanted to discuss my learning disabilities and how I overcame them, but I did not want to sound “damaged”. This book explained that it is okay to as long as you make the topic about how you overcame the situation and do not whine about it. Some of the most compelling essays that universities see are on disabilities, low economics status, and/or minority status. I used this book to revise my personal statement before reapplying. While reading the DO and DON’T chapter, I found tons of things I did in the “DON’T section and I had to edit them out of my statement. Here are a few:Your essay should give them an idea of your personality, not reiterate your resume The opening sentence should capture the reader’s attention and curiosity. It should entice them to keep reading on You are wasting your personal statement opportunity and the reader’s time by writing introduction and conclusions even though this is the way you were taught to write a proper essay. Typically you will not have enough space to write these given the 250-1000 word limit. For example, erase sentences like these… “allow me to introduce myself…” “these are the reasons you should admit me…” “thank you for your time and consideration…” “I hope you grant me the opportunity…” [*]Double check each school for the word limit and stick to it. You will not be disqualifies for going over, but the admissions reader has too many others to read and will only read the 1st pager (or whatever the limit is) and move on. [*]Use normal vocabulary. Trying to impress them with large words will only distract them from the content. [*]Don’t “whine” about the system or about how hard the GRE’s are [*]Don’t remind the university about their rankings or strong faculty. They already know that’s why a lot of students want to attend there, dig deeper and get specific about THAT particular university and certain faculty members. Go to the website and research each and every faculty member until you find one that has similar interest as you. [*]For example, do talk about wanting to go to that school because of the close proximity to great hospitals and you want to do you CFY there and specialize in swallowing. (or great schools systems they are affiliated with) [*]For example, do talk about a particular faculty member who is currently doing research that is interesting to you. Then e-mail that professor, telling them you are impressed with the research they are currently doing and that you hope you can learn more about when you are accepted. Then you go back to your essay and say I have even sent Dr. so and so an e-mail expressing my interest. [*]Make sure to twist your weaknesses into something good read more tips like this on my blog at MedSLP by the way how do I submit my blog to thegradcafe.com???
  18. i was wondering what anyone has heard about these two programs as i am trying to decide between the two of them--anyone that can share personal experiences or knows about them? anybody that has been accepted to either program- are you attending?
  19. I have recently been admitted to the University of South Carolina's MSP program. Of the schools that I have applied to, for some reason their program is one of the most intimidating, to me. Perhaps it is mainly because of the image they try to project... I'm not really sure. If you, or anyone you know, is/has attended the full-time Masters of Speech Pathology at USC.... I would really appreciate some information!! I'm interested to know how intense it actually is... and if possible perhaps even some comparison to other Masters of SLP programs. Feel free to post what you know... no flaming, of course
