  1. Hello, I just graduated with a Bachelors in Public Health and for my next step I want to pursue my masters in SLP. I've been researching my options and since I have an unrelated major, I know that I have to obtain a post-baccalaureate certificate. I live in Southern California so I've been looking into programs close to home, specifically the CSULA pre-SLP program and the CSUN Tseng College Online pre-SLP program. Has anyone gotten their pre-SLP certificate from these schools? How was the experience during the course and in getting into a grad program? I've also been looking into online post-bacc programs (ex: La Salle, Utah State, Wyoming) Call me old fashioned, but I've never taken college courses online, and it seems a little bit iffy/less credible/harder for grad schools to take seriously (these are just my fears, not looking down on anyone who took the online route!), so I am just wondering if that was really the case? I hope someone can answer any of my questions, any insight will be appreciated! thank you so much sincerely, a confused and (very recent) college grad ?
  2. Hi, I'm currently an English undergrad student. But I'm planning to do my masters in Classics. (We'll narrow it down once we reach that bridge) I have zero background in the languages, Latin or ancient Greek and due to the lack of resources/programs (again, zero) in my country about classics, I have to apply to the programs offered by the universities abroad. Due to my lack of language background and to make up for three years of language requirement to get a PhD in Classics, I'm going to do a post baccalaureate. So I have my post bacc narrowed to three universities, but what I wanted to know if that's a fulfilling way to go on about it? Has anyone done a post bacc and then joined the masters in classics? And done a PhD? Is there any other way this can be achieved? Also, how is the student life during a post bacc, amount of hours and the study required? Because I do love the classics and I plan on making a future in academia in the same (I'm well aware of how terribly awful it sounds, a narrowing field with a dying subject)
  3. Is it worth it to take 2-4 courses in the summer to try to finish the program earlier? It's crazy expensive and wondering if taking summer school affects the cost of tuition in anyway. Do they deduct the courses (is tuition by semester or courses)? Will I be paying the same amount in the end? Not sure when applications for MS/MA programs start and how it would affect that? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    Research experience while working

    My goal is to earn a PhD in ecology with a focus is either estuarine ecology or biological oceanography. However, I am a Naval Academy graduate and did not get much research experience there, unfortunately those opportunities don't really exist at Navy. Now I am working as a Data Analyst in the Boston Area and trying to figure out if there is any way possible for me to get research experience part time while I work, or any other suggestions that could help propel me towards my PhD goal. Thank you for any suggestions!
  5. So I'm pretty new to this community, but I've decided to change career paths and apply to Speech Pathology Master's programs! My Bachelor's is in Dietetics, and while nutrition is great and important and all... I just don't think it's for me. I've done a lot of research on SLP, and now I'm just seeking some advice I guess. Since I'm an out of field applicant, I have all the CSD prereqs to take. I was wondering if anyone else studied for those classes before actually taking them? I'm thinking about finding some Quizlets just so I have an idea of what to expect come this fall when I start school again. I'm in the process of studying for the GRE right now, which takes priority, but I'd still like some opinions on how to prepare for CSD classes as a post-bacc student!
  6. I'm a first year psychology graduate student (specializing in cognitive neuroscience) at a pretty good grad school. I'm only a couple months in and I'm panicking- I wasn't 100% sure about grad school when I entered and now I feel even worse. I don't feel motivated/interested in the research I'm doing and now I'm thinking I should pursue a post-bacc to be pre med (which I have been considering for about two years). But my friends and family say I should give it a little time to figure out what I want to research, etc. I'm 22, and people say that I just need time to figure it out, but I'm worried that after 5 years of a PhD program, I'm not going to be happy with a job in academia (if I get one.. and that's a big if). I've been thinking about applying to post bacc programs -- which would be roughly 2 years plus 4 years of med school (plus residency, etc). Or, I could wait until I get my master's, which would delay it another year. Would this be worth it?? Or should I just forget about this and stay in my program? In short, I have NO idea what to do. Help!

    SLP Post-Bacc

    Hi everyone. I graduated with my bachelors in SLP in May. I am not in grad school currently. My GPA was a low 3.02 and my major GPA I think a 3.1. I was looking into a post-bacc program to retake maybe 4 or 5 classes at most, starting summer of 2018 and ending Spring of 2019. Am I able to only take a handful and not the full set of courses if I'm just retaking them? I work full time and would not be able to handle a full course load. I am also interested in only a few semesters of classes. I plan to reapply to graduate school next year.
  9. Hi Everyone! I was just recently accepted into an SLP post bacc program that I will be starting in September, my BA is not in communications sciences and disorders so this is a requirement for me before I apply to grad school in Washington state. Side note: my husband and I are currently living in Virginia and relocating to WA as he is getting out of the Marine Corps, we are moving in about a week. I took some SLP pre-requsite courses through a university here in VA but the requirements for grad school are drastically different on the west coast than they are here on the east coast. So, I was accepted into this post bacc program in WA and I have the option to apply to grad school before I complete the program or to take a gap year and then apply to the grad program. My GPA is not stellar right now, my BA GPA was about 3.3...but I got all A's in the SLP courses I took outside of my bachelors degree. Despite my GPA being what it is, I did get into this post bacc program that only takes 18-20 students a year, which I thought was fantastic. I had completely convinced myself that I would not get in just a couple of weeks before I got my acceptance letter. I do understand that my GPA is not very competitive at all when thinking about applying to grad school, the university I am attending for the post bacc program suggests that if your GPA is not above 3.5 that you take the gap year and then apply to grad school. However, I would really like to apply to grad school so that when I finish the post bacc program I can go right into the grad program, if I am accepted. I do also have experience working in an SLP office, though not an SLP or SLP-A...I have been working for a pediatric speech, OT and PT clinic for about a year and half first, as a receptionist and second, as a billing representative. I was promoted to billing about six months after I started with the company. I'm not sure if this will give me any extra points or not but I have been working alongside SLPs and have become friends with many of them and they have been very active my journey to becoming and SLP. I am very familiar with the clinical side of being an SLP that I think a lot of students don't get before they get to grad school. So here is my question, would it be worth it for me to try to apply to grad school before I complete the post bacc program or should I take the gap year? PS. I would also need to take the GRE as that is not something I have taken yet. Thank you for whatever advice you can give me!
  10. So it is becoming apparent to me after 2 rejections that I may very well have to try to apply to grad school again at a later time. I was wondering if any of you had advice as to what to do if an individual was not able to get into graduate school straight out of undergrad? Did any of you apply to be an Speech Language Pathology Assistant? Also, if anyone has taken Post Bacc classes, do you have to apply in order to enroll into post bacc classes? Are you able to enroll into Post Bacc classes simply to boost your GPA?
  11. Hi All,As a 28-year old attempting a career transition, with mind my set on eventually getting a PhD in clinical psychology, I could use some advice about the options available to me. At this stage it seems that I need to beef up my experience to be even considered eligible for a Phd. program: I have a BS in Econs but zero coursework in Psych and no experience with research or other psych related work. I have identified the post-bacc route as the most suitable for me to complete the pre-req courses and obtain lab experience and letters of recommendation. My concern now is that there are only a handful of suitable post-bacc courses, and together with my status of as an international student, I'm having doubts about getting accepted into anything at all.Other pathwaysMany of the suggestions from this forum, such as taking the pre-req. courses at a local college aren't an option for me. I live in Malaysia, and even though I have my heart set on the US, I'm uncertain about coming to the US just to take a few courses as non-degree seeking student. I'm not even sure how this would work with the visas; do you have to apply as a normal undergrad?The appeal of post-baccs is the structured format and access to the research positions on campus (an international F-1 visa only allows for work within the campus). I have also considered online learning. This would fulfill pre-reqs but don't help with getting research experience or letters of recommendation.MastersIf have already decided I want to do a Phd. a masters seems like a waste of time. Also, I don't think I would be eligible for a program of my choice for the same reasons I can't do a Phd yet: no pre-reqs, no research experience, and psych GRE.Questions1. I am looking for backup options in case I am rejected from all the post-bacc programs (full list of post-baccs im considering are below). I am looking at something for the upcoming academic year.2. Are there any other post-baccs I have missed or similar courses that offer a research opportunities, resident full-time status(needed for visa) and that don't require me to already have psych experience, or pre-reqs.3. Is my understanding of registering at undergrad level to fulill course requirements correct?4. I would be grateful for any other advice or pointers to resources.Thanks!List of identified post-baccs (distance learning has been ruled out)1. UC Berkeley2. Columbia3. Farleigh Dickinson4. Penn LPS

    HELP! 3-year MFA in Graphic Design

    Hi, I'm currently in the third and final year of my Bachelor's Degree in something totally unrelated to Graphic Design, in India. I don't want to do anything related to my Bachelors in the future and want to do something related to Graphic Design/Illustration after I graduate. I've always been into art and design since a child and I was seriously considering Graphic Design in school. I even got accepted at an Art School with a Foundation year but I chose to stay in India as I got into one of the best colleges in Liberal Arts here. Even now, I find myself doodling in class all the time, have big ideas in my head and volunteer for small college design stuff. I don't have much experience apart from art classes in school, winning a few small college level competitions and designing invites, posters etc for college events. I thoroughly enjoy design but lack any kind of formal training and don't know any technicalities related to Graphic Design. I simply use a cheap knockoff of Photoshop to design stuff, which I am really passionate about. People praise my work all the time and a number of people have told me to pursue design in the future. I feel like I have the potential but lack any proper education in Design. I absolutely don't want to study further in India as the Design scene here isn't too strong and want to learn GD from scratch. I researched a lot and found the following options, but am not sure if i'll be accepted for an MFA at my level, being only 20 years old. OPTIONS: 3 year MFA in Graphic Design (schools like RISD, CalArts, CCA) Post-Bacc at MICA 2 year MS in Communication Design at Pratt 2 year AAS in Graphic Design at Parsons 2 year AAS at Pratt where after the two year AAS, I can transfer to the 3rd year (Junior level) of the BFA in Comm Design) Second Bachelors in Graphic Design It would be amazing if I could get some advice about this as I am thinking about this all the time and really need some direction and clarity. Also, if someone could suggest a few schools in Europe, UK etc, it would be great! As of now, whatever schools I researched about in Europe/UK, they require a lot of experience to apply at the Masters Level.
  13. I have a 2.78 overall and 3.1 CSD major. Now, I work as an assistant teacher. I did a year of AmeriCorps. I volunteer in the hospital. Taking the GRE soon. It's recommended that I re-take some CSD classes. However, I don't have the funds. I want to get into a Master's program and not add anymore debt before then. What else can I do to clean up my undergraduate mess?
  14. Hi everyone! I was just accepted for two different online Speech Pathology Post Bacc Programs: SUNY New Paltz and Idaho State University. I am very conflicted in my decision because both offer a different amount of courses. New Paltz offers 9 and ISU offers 15 (3 labs). I wanted to see if anyone has any feedback on these programs or if anyone knows which I should be leaning towards. I need to get a great GPA to be able to get into a master program, so I don't know if I want to overwhelm myself with the 15 classes, but then again, will I be able to apply to all schools later on with only 9? So conflicted. Please help!
