  1. This question may be kind of strange, but what was the dress code at your grad schools? I'm nervous I'm not gonna have enough "clinic" clothes but I also don't want to break the bank. Good quality professional clothes is so expensive. I bought a couple of tops and slacks but I don't know if it's enough. Thank you!
  2. Hey everyone! So I got a C in statistics my second semester of college. Will this hurt my chances of getting into graduate schools? My overall gpa right now is pretty high and so far I've made A's in all of my ASLP classes. Should I retake stats? I just don't know if it will look super bad on my transcript to have a C.

  4. Greetings, I am in the process of applying for graduate school in the field speech language pathology. The University of South Alabama happens to be on my list. I would love to hear some opinions on the program. Thanks in advance.
  5. Does anyone have any tips as to how they are tailoring their personal statements to specific schools? I wrote one main personal statement and I am going to tweak it to each school by putting a paragraph as to why I want to attend that school. With some programs on my list I am having trouble finding more detailed info on their program (like Illinois, Urbana-Champiagn) and I don't want to say something generic. Any examples or tips to achieve this?! Thanks!

    SLP Masters programs....advice!!

    Anyone know of high acceptance rate masters programs for Speech? I have a low GRE and am looking to relate with someone and get some hope. I am an SLPA right now. Does anyone know of grad schools they got into with lower GRE scores? THANK YOU!

    Michigan SLP grad programs?

    Has anyone gotten into or applied to any grad schools in Michigan? If so I'd love to hear details on specific schools and what your stats were that either got you in or rejected. I'm primarily interested in Michigan State, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, Grand Valley State, and Wayne State. I was previously interested in Eastern Michigan but their website says they're currently on ASHA probation so now I'm probably going to skip applying there. Any insight is much appreciated!
  8. I always see posts about if people who have lower GPAs and lower GRE scores but a lot of extra work they can put on their applications have a shot at getting into graduate school. But what about those of us who are in the exact opposite boat? I have a 3.96 GPA (with the only class I've ever gotten lower than an A in being an audiology course), got a 304 on my GRE with a 5 in Analytical Writing (but I am retaking it to see if I can raise my low quant score) but have virtually NO shadowing/observation hours, no volunteer work, and really no in-field experience at all. The only "extra" thing I have is that I am an involved board member at my school's speech language and hearing association. I am working on setting up some shadowing/observation hours (side note: what is a good amount of total observation hours to have?). Just wonder if there is hope for someone who has little in-field experience to get into grad school if my grades are overall strong??? I'd love to hear from anybody who was in my same boat or has any insight on this or advice for me.
  9. Anyone know of high acceptance rate masters programs for Speech? I have a low GRE and am looking to relate with someone and get some hope. I am an SLPA right now. Does anyone know of grad schools they got into with lower GRE scores? Or anyone that was an SLPA and it helped you get in? THANK YOU! Quote
  10. Hi guys. I'm currently entering into my 4th week of grad school and I'm really struggling. I have 2 clients and 1 group and writing lesson plans, making PowerPoints, and writing SOAP notes for this takes a majority of my time. I have no time to do the readings for my classes and study for exams. I have an exam today that I'm probably going to fail because I did t have time to study for it. I feel very discouraged and honestly want to quit. To add to that I'm a teaching assistant and clinic assistant. Does anyone have any advice on how to do all these things with such a limited amount of time?
  11. Help a girl out here, y'all. I've been set on taking a gap year before applying for grad school. Most of my classmates are applying this Fall and during this whole summer I've been watching them freak out over their apps, GREs, etc. and I'm just here not worrying about it since I'm planning to apply next Fall. I just feel like I am not ready for grad school yet, feel like I haven't done enough to boost my apps or get to know my professors enough, you know? But now, I'm really having second thoughts. I'm super conflicted. I feel like I might miss my chance if I don't apply now. Plus all the other issues like, who am I gonna ask for my letter of recs in a year when I'm not attending school anymore and all that stuff. I freaking doubt you can recycle LoRs (or can you? ) If anyone here is on the same boat, feel free to reply and freak out with me. If anyone here has taken a gap year and got into grad school anyway, please take me as your young Padawan and school me of your ways. If anyone here is totally against a gap year, please enlighten me as to why.
  12. Hello. I will be starting grad school in august and I don't really know what to expect. Everyone is always talking about how stressful and hard it is, but never explain how and why. Is it that much different than undergrad? Are the classes harder than they were in undergrad or is it just time constraints with clinic? Thank you!
  13. What are your responsibilities as a graduate teaching assistant?
  14. I recently accepted my seat into Syracuse university and was wondering if anyone here went there and could give me more info? Also, I was offered a graduate teaching assistantship. Is this just holding office hours and grading or is it legit teaching a class (like on Jane the virgin) thank you!
  15. Hey all! I am a junior at CSU Fullerton and I'm just wondering when is the perfect time to ask for Letters of Rec? I am planning to apply for Fall 2018 (my estimated graduation date is Spring '18) and I already have 2 professors in mind to ask but I just don't know when and how to go about it. Do I ask this ongoing Spring semester? Do I ask in the upcoming Fall semester? It seems to be something that no one really talks about or explains clearly, so I'm a bit confused. Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  16. Hi, I am currently a Biochem major, my GPA is below a 3.0 due to a messy third year due to lack of ambition, and terrible study habits I made stupid choices in my third year which I completely regret. I am going to my fifth year now, I have done a lot of research on what I want to do, and have bettered my study habits a lot. I really want to pursue a master's in SLP and its something I gave a lot of thought. I plan on graduating after my fifth year and then coming back and boosting my GPA and then applying. I know that grad schools in Canada are really competitive, but this is something I really want to do Could someone give me some advice, or did anyone have a similar experience? I want to hopefully boost my GPA and then apply but I feel a little uncertain, are my chances of getting in really slim? I know I said Canada in the title but information about SLP in America is also appreciated! (I'm doing my own research but still would like to hear from everyone) I am doing my thesis soon and continue volunteering at my local hospital. For speech pathologist (or even audiology, since I'm interested in finding out) what kind of letter of recommendation do you guys get? Would an LOR from a Biochem or bio prof be irrelevant in this field? Any advice is really appreciated, please please help me!!
  17. I'm hoping that someone can either confirm my fears or ease my anxiety. I'm currently a postbac at a top three program with a relatively high GPA (3.89 last 90 credits, 3.92 major). I have a lot of great experience in the field and strong letters of rec. I scored a 162 verbal, 4.5 writing, BUT a whopping 144 for quant. Math is my nemesis. I'm hoping that the programs I applied to will overlook these less than desirable scores because they are over 300? Is this just false hope? Neither of the two schools that I applied to have minimum cut offs, but still. Any feed back would be appreciated! I feel like I don't see many people with such as huge gap in their scores like mine :/
