  1. Hello, I am applying to several PsyD grad school programs, but I do not have an undergraduate degree in psychology. As such, there are a few prerequisites I need to complete. Several schools have listed "experimental psychology" as one of their prerequisites, but I cannot find a school that offers this course this spring or summer, including huge state schools like university of Maryland. Am I missing something here? Is this the same course as "Research Methods in Psychology"? Cuz that is the course I keep seeing again and again. I am unable to actually speak to a human being in
  2. 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 m
  3. Hi, all. I apologize for creating so many threads but I figured this one might be applicable to others as well. My problem is this: the only school that I have applied to this cycle and one which I will definitely attend if I am admitted, has a pesky statistics requirement that I somehow didn't notice when I was doing research on the school. (I know I should have assumed that this would be the case - believe me, I am beating myself up about this enough already.) Anyway, this wouldn't be too much of a problem except that I recently moved states and so if I were to take a statistics course at a
  4. As an out of field applicant, I've decided that the best option for me to complete the necessary SLP prerequisite coursework is the CSULA post-bacc program, and thankfully I was accepted! However, this program is not eligible for federal or state loans, the only option is private loans. My undergraduate GPA isn't the highest (3.56 cumulative, 3.75 last 60 units) which means it's extremely important to do very well in the post-bacc classes so I don't know if I'll be able to work many hours. Plus cost of living in LA is very high. Does it make sense to take out private loans for this program? Tu
  5. I am currently waitlisted at 5 schools and have no acceptances yet. I took the bulk of my pre-reqs through a post-bac program, but each of these remaining schools has one or two random classes that weren't included. I've registered at various schools for the 5 classes I could possibly need to take, with a plan of dropping if I get rejected or only taking the ones I need for the school I end up going to. But now that May is approaching I'm realizing classes will start soon and I may not hear from the waitlists until later in May or even June. I will be absolutely crushed if I drop a class and t
  6. I'm currently wait-listed at 4 schools (no acceptances yet). Each school I applied to had most of the same prereqs and then a few outliers. It looks like I won't know where I'm going until after summer registration starts, so I have no idea how I'm supposed to know what classes to take over the summer. It will kill me if I end up getting accepted off a wait list and don't have all the prereqs done, but at the same time, how am I supposed to take every single class that every school requires? My bachelor's is in another field, and the post-ba program I'm taking doesn't even offer a lot of the c
  7. Hi everyone! Over the last two years, I have been asked by so many about where to take ASHA prerequisites like biology, physics/chemistry, sociology, psychology, and statistics courses. If you are pressed for time and missing these courses, there is an alternative to enrolling in courses. Most schools will accept examination credit from CLEP and DSST exams. I personally tested out of 49 credit hours in undergrad and I can tell you that most of the exams are pretty easy to prepare for. Each exam costs $80 plus a small proctor fee. It is SO much cheaper, easier, and faster than taking a ful
  8. 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
  9. I am looking into applying for a couple of art therapy grad programs. I have a B.A. in Theatre and graduated in 2011. The art therapy programs that I am looking at both require 12 credits in Psych and 18 in Studio Art. I have no psych classes under my belt, and my art training was all through THEA classes (along with out of school training). The admissions counselor recommended that I take classes at the local community college in order to get these prereqs. I already have my A.A. and my B.A. and am really concerned about taking even more classes at a community college just to *maybe* get into
  10. I'm trying to decide which supplementary math class to take community college before my grad program starts. I've already taken Stats 1 & 2, and Calc 2, I'm trying to decide between differential equations and linear algebra. I only have time to take one of these in the spring, as I'm still working full time, and the summer semester dips into when grad classes would start. I've been accepted into most of my top choices for environment/energy management, (I haven't picked yet! D: ) talking to professors and looking through course catalogs, it seems like it would between these tw
  11. So..long post ahead... For a while now I'd been committed to going to law school. I took the LSAT this past February for the 2nd time in hopes I'd do well enough for my target schools for matriculation this fall (top 20 range). Not to be...So at this point I'm considering other graduate options (though I'm pretty sure I'll take the LSAT again later this year), but with no real direction (BA in Philosophy so go figure). At this point I'm looking at everything from Economics to Psychology (minored in both), but I know I'd need some prerequisite courses to be seriously considered. My qu
  12. I was accepted into a Master's program that starts in the Fall. I need to take 12 hours of pre-requisite undergraduate courses in the first year, and the actual program is 60 hours. Im considering taking at least a few pre-reqs online this summer in order to streamline the process, while working. The only issue is that if I am not in schools this summer I will have time to work more = more money saved. Any thoughts on which option might be best?
  13. Hi everyone. I am currently in the final semester of my masters in education and have come to the conclusion that I would like to continue my education and pursue a PhD. I am currently completing a degree in Social Studies education, and would like to also pursue my PhD in that same field of study. My current program has led me to read a lot of academic work, and one such author resonated with me each time I read his work. After a quick search of his name in a bout of curiosity, it turns out he is the program director/doctoral advisor for a Social Studies Education program. The schools website
  14. I'm thinking about returning to grad school after an 11 year absence from studying and advanced mathematics. Statistics is the field I am most interested in, and I have the right undergraduate prerequisites (Calc I-III, Linear Algebra, Prob & Stat). However, I'm worried about being rejected because of how long ago my coursework was. I've been in education since that time and haven't really used or reviewed any upper-level mathematics. Ideally, I'd like to get into a mid-tier program. Application deadlines for Fall 2017 are coming up and I'm trying to decide whether or not it makes sen
  15. I have an undergraduate degree in English and need to take all prerequisites to get into an SLP program - does anyone know of programs that admit students into their master's programs that integrate the prereqs? I am only aware of CU Boulder and University of the Pacific. I am hoping to apply to a few of these programs (if more exist) and apply for post-bacc programs (post-bacc is up for debate... not sure if I should take these on my own instead.) Thanks so much!
  16. Long time lurker first time poster here, hi everyone! ive received an offer from NYU to do my masters in Economics in the fall of 2016, but because my background is unrelated to Economics, there is a condition attached to my acceptance: "You must take Intermediate Macroeconomics and Intermediate Microeconomics before enrolling at NYU." I've tried looking online for Economics courses and diplomas that can help me fulfill this requirement, but most of them have a minimum duration of a year. Is there a program or a distance learning course from an accredited institution that I can
  17. Hey folks, I was wondering if you could help me out here? Since I did not major in sociology during my undergrad, I'm obviously missing some classes from my repertoire. The university I plan to attend in the fall have asked me to take sociological theory before classes start in September. There are so many online programs that it's overwhelming to try to weed through which programs are legitimate and which ones are not, especially since I have never taken an online course before. I was wondering if any of you could recommend any online sociology programs? I only need to take sociological
  18. I graduated from the University of Georgia in May with a degree in Linguistics/Theatre. Last year, I tried to apply for speech pathology without any prerequisites (except linguistics courses) and got rejected from all seven schools I applied to >.< Now, I'm taking prereqs through the online program at Longwood, and my post-bac GPA is 3.8-3.9ish. By the end of the spring, I'll have courses in phonology, syntax, semantics, and morphology (through my Bachelor's degree) as well as Intro to CSD, Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing, Language Development, Intro to Audiology, Languag
