    Emerson Online ?

    Has anyone been accepted and apprehensive about it not being accredited by ASHA yet ? Deciding between Emerson and NYU Speech distance learning. Any insight would be greatly appreciated !
  2. Hi, I am taking a gap year and going to teach English abroad (great speech experience). I graduated with just under a 3.7 GPA, have strong letters of rec and experience and am hoping my essay is very telling of my passion. Unfortunately, I took the gre and got a 153 (61st) on verbal and 151(42nd) on math with a 5.0 (92nd) on AW. I am applying to competitive schools in NY and Boston. I am wondering if my GRE scores will hinder my applications even being read? or how much they matter? SOS. If anyone was accepted/goes to any school in these cities please help
  3. Hello there! I'm an out-of-field student (majored in History) who is looking to apply to grad school for SLP for Fall 2019! I'm currently looking at the following schools: San Jose State University CSU East Bay UT Dallas Northern Arizona University Marquette University Montclair State University Grand Valley State University University of the Pacific University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign Here are my stats: 3.97 GPA, Currently taking prerequisite classes and will have 2 by application, 161V/160Q/4.5W. I was a teaching intern at a literacy/creative writing nonprofit, worked at my college's writing center for 3 years, worked with elderly people at a safe/affordable housing nonprofit, was an AmeriCorps college access counselor for low-income high school students of color, and currently work at a speech therapy private practice with preschoolers. I'm also certified as a Registered Behavior Technician and hope to soon start doing ABA therapy at my current job. Is there anything else I can do to improve my application? What are my chances for getting into the schools above? Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone, One of the scariest things many of us who aspire to be SLPs are facing is the cost of education. This is a very sensitive topic for many people, including myself. I was not very smart about student loans as an undergrad, and am very worried about the amount I will rack up if and when I am accepted into a graduate program. I graduated with over $100k in student loan debt and am wondering if going to graduate school and tackling a possible $200k loan (due to interest) by the end of the program is worth it. Salary was never a huge thing for me going into CSD. It was never the reason I wanted to become an SLP to begin with. I have always had a passion for working with children, especially those with disabilities. I hope to work as an SLP in a school-based setting one day. Everyone knows how passionate I am about the field. Unfortunately, I am constantly reminded of the huge loans that will be weighing down on me if and when I graduate from school. Based on research (which may vary based on setting, location, and years of experience), SLPs do not make much in their CFY and in their first few years in the field. However, loan payments will be required during that time. For reference, I graduated a year ago and am currently working at a therapeutic day school as an assistant teacher. I work very closely with the SLPs, so I am also getting a lot of hands-on experience. Financially, I have been making all of my loan payments on-time. I currently live at home, which is fine. Therefore, I am able to live comfortably and can afford to splurge every now and then while also saving money. I was planning on applying for programs this upcoming season, but I can't help wonder if now would be the right time for me to do so. I am a follower of Dave Ramsey, so my budgeting skills have definitely improved. I am also worried since many programs advise you not to work at all or to work for little with highly flexible hours, which means interest would accrue during that time. Should I wait and pay off some loans first before applying to grad school, or should I be willing to tackle these loans all at once afterwards? I am not sure if anyone else out there is in the same financial situation as me. If this resonates with you, know that you are not alone. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
  5. Hi everyone! For those who requested recommendations from employers, did you email them documents such as your transcript or a copy of your statement of purpose for them to review while writing the recommendations on your behalf? I'm applying to several programs via CSDCAS. I asked my supervisor and a special education teacher I worked with to write me letters. Do they need supplement items in order to write me a stronger recommendation? Or would it be better if I just submit the request form to them without those items? I would love feedback about this. Thank you

  7. Hi everyone, I'm currently an SLP undergraduate at a local CSU. I'm interested in applying to graduate school in California but want to know what experience, test scores, GPA, etc I should have to remain competitive. Has anyone gotten accepted to the CSUF, CSULB, or Chapman SLP Grad program? If so, what were your stats related to scores/gpa/experience? Any advice as well?

    Low GPA for grad school?

    So, here's my situation. I have one semester left of my undergrad and then I will likely graduate with a 3.2 gpa. (Not great, I know). I do have the chance to stay another semester to try and boost my GPA, although at this point I'm just ready to graduate. I don't plan on going to grad school right away, I plan on working as an SLPA for awhile to gain some hands on experience within the field. Do you think I have a chance at getting into grad school? I have also volunteered at a speech clinic, and plan to shadow/observe more. I have also worked at a preschool for 2 years now, and have had plenty of experience with children so I'm hoping that helps as well? Thoughts?? This is my very first post on GradCafe!!
  9. Hi everyone! I know there's a 2018 SLP thread that's supposed to be for Canadians already, but it was really convoluted with posts from other countries, so I thought I would make a thread that's explicitly Canadian so that we don't have to worry about sifting through everyone's posts to find what's relevant for us! Applications open up really soon and I'm sure we're all super nervous! It's really nice to have this community to be able to talk about everything SLP-related! Happy applying, friends! For myself, this is my first time applying. I'm thinking of only applying to the University of Alberta and Dalhousie, though UBC would definitely be at the top of my list if I had the prerequisites. I'm sitting at a GPA of 3.92 (3.89 for ORPAS), with a prereq GPA of 3.84. It's not perfect, but I'm hoping it'll be enough! I also have a couple years worth of heavy research experience for a developmental psycholinguist. In the other 2018 SLP thread I had mentioned that I don't have a lot of related experience to SLPs, but I'm happy to say that since posting there I've put in over 50 hours (so far) in a couple different speech clinics, working with a variety of age groups. It's been really cool!
  10. Hey! This is my first post so let me know if I didn't do it correctly please. So writing my statement if purpose for 2019 fall admissions....heres my background and the jist of my issues... Unlike others, I don't have a family member with a disability. My parents own their own business supporting people with disabilities. Since I was 3, my parents would bring me to work with them everyday because I think my mom had this irrational fear that I would be abducted by my babysitter. Ok not important, BUT because of this, until I was about 13 I was going to work with my parents and helping push wheelchairs, and going on outings with them and their clients. So I am familiar with a wide range of disabilities and wonderful people and ahhh I love them so much. Anyway, I knew I loved working with people with disabilities because it's my family's whole life, and I still see the clients a lot. Additionally, this summer I started working for my parents as a second job. I started volunteering in my High school special education class and that's when I fell in love with Autism, and learned about speech pathology. But I didn't know that I could work with people with brain injury, cerebral palsy, or dementias! I discovered that in my anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing class. So I found out I could also work with adults with those conditions/disabilities (sorry that's such awkward wording and I don't know how to say it any better! Sorry). Additionally, I work at a hospital and go into the NICU a lot and the nurses always talk to me about how important the Slps are to these infants and feeding. So I'm also intrigued with pediatric feeding and swallowing. So how do I protect privacy in my statement of purpose as to why I want to be a speech language pathologist? I don't want to write a novel and I haven't even included in my "brief" summary about how these individuals have personally impacted me and how now when I see them I'm like omg I'm literally watching swallowing precautions and they're following them! There's actually more important information but I don't want to violate privacy because a.) That's just wrong and b.) It would look really bad if I can't protect privacy. I don't really even feel comfortable posting this! I'm all about that privacy, yo. Also...i feel like I'm banking off of my parents business and what my parents do...its my whole life but still...it sounds not good. How can I discuss it in my SOP without writing a novel, and respecting privacy, and making it connected and not sound like I'm using my parents achievements? Thankyou, and let me know if I revealed too much and should delete this! I want to keep it vague but not too vague. Ok have a wonderful day, let me know what I should Do! πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ“
  11. Hello everyone, I am kinda freaking out right now because idk if I will get accepted into an SLP Master's Program. I know that it's a very competitive field and I don't have the best statuses. Here are my stats, Overall GPA 3.3, Major GPA 3.5, GRE: 139V 142Q 3.0AW (I know its bad Dx). I am planning to retake the GRE one more time before August and hoping to get in the 150's (I've been using Magoosh and it's been helping. The practice tests say I would probably score 145-150, but I still have a month til my test). I currently live in Nevada and there's only one Master's program here. I am currently looking at these schools: Old Dominion, Hampton University, distance programs such as Nova and NYU Steinfield, Louisiana State University, Arizona State University, etc. If you applied or was accepted can you tell me how you like it and if I have a chance of being accepted. Thank you everyone~
  12. What better place to find people to share application anxiety with? I haven't seen another thread like this yet so here we go. Which programs are you applying to? Where are you from? What are your biggest concerns about applications? I'll start. I'm applying to a grand total of two schools (I'm obviously crazy) because I want to be on campus and I have to stay in VA. I'm looking at JMU and Longwood and honestly don't know what my chances are but I'm going to try to be optimistic. Figured I'd start applications early on CSDCAS but maaaan this process is waaay slower than I had anticipated! I'm so excited for grad school though!

    Laptop Recommendations?

    What kind of computer is everyone getting (or already have) for grad school? I have a Macbook Pro that's four years old, but I'm wondering if I should get a new computer for grad school.

    Aural Rehabilitation

    Has anyone had to take aural rehabilitation online during the summer before starting grad school? The school I'm going to attend offers it in the first year spring semester, but I think I'd rather take it online and make for a lighter course load that spring semester. If you have taken it online, are there any certain colleges that you've taken it through and have good experiences with?
  15. Hey there! Has anyone been accepted to grad school after completing an online leveling program? If so, which program did you complete? Can you tell me a little bit about your experience and the rest of your application? Thanks!!
  16. Hi everyone! I'm planning on applying to CSUSM's Masters in SLP for this Fall 2019 cohort and was wondering if anyone was willing to share their stats that got into the same or a similar program? CSUSM doesn't require the GRE, which seems good at first, but just puts more emphasis on your GPA. My last 60 units GPA is around 3.72 and I'm volunteering regularly on the weekends with a group that provides opportunities for those with mental handicaps. I would really appreciate any feedback or advice that anyone has; I'm freaking out! CSUSM is my #1 pick of graduate school and I just so badly want to get in there. I work full time also but I'm doing my best to keep my grades up as high as possible. I've also read/heard so much about the interview process, so if anyone has experience with that I would really appreciate that as well! πŸ™‚
  17. Hi everyone. I will be applying to grad programs in the next cycle. I would like to stay in the south, preferably Texas or Louisiana. The schools I am looking at are UL Lafayette, University of Houston, TCU, Baylor, UNT, and UTD. Does anyone have any feedback on these schools (positive or negative)? ALSO, what about funding at any of these schools? I have a 3.95 GPA, research experience, am very involved in undergrad and expect to make a relatively high score on the GRE (for whatever reason, I excel at standardized tests-- got a 35 on the ACT in hs), if that will have any impact. TIA!

    TWU TETN Cycle 10

    Anyone applying to TWUs TETN Cycle 10 program? If so, what region are you in? What’re your stats?
  19. Hi everyone! I had a quick opinion question for you all. Grad school apps ask for 25 observation hours, which I got during a class at CU. However, I'm also going to a therapy abroad trip in August where I will get 25 more hours and I've been volunteering with a speech therapist over the summer that could count as more hours. Do you think it's worth it to submit all the extra hours even though I don't need them when the time comes? It sounds silly, but it almost feels weird to not do it. I'm trying to get all the boosters I can get for my applications to help with any chances of getting into schools. I don't even know if it would make a difference/matter at all to the people looking at my application. Let me know what you think, all thoughts welcome!
  20. I made this thread so we can post updates as soon as we receive them about any schools in Louisiana. I'm applying to UL and LSUHSC-NO
  21. Hi guys! This is the first time Im using a forum but I am eager to get your input. I am interested in applying to the COMD Masters program at UTD for Spring/Summer 2019. I've always been so nervous to apply to the program, obviously scared of receiving a rejection. I graduated with my BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from UTD in 2013. My GPA was 3.56. I also graduated with a MAT (Masters in Arts of Teaching) Science Ed from UTD in 2016. My GPA was 3.97. I completed my thesis in grad school on the effects of an inclusive classroom on the academic achievement for students with and without learning disabilities. I am currently studying to take the GRE as I haven't taken it yet since the masters program I was in didn't require it. I had two kids in grad school so I have not been able to hold a full time job. But I have been an AVID tutor for PISD, a sub for PISD, and taught English online to kids living in China. I really more than anything want to get into UTD's COMD program but have been so scared to apply because I know of so many people getting rejected. I am also interested in TWU's distance learning option since its so far from home. Anyone have any detail info about their program? What are your opinions of me getting in with my stats? Anyone else got in at UTD with already having a masters in a different field?
  22. Hi Everyone! First time posting, so bear with me. I will be graduating December 2019 from an undergrad program in MA, and I know this is early, but I'm looking for information on the most affordable grad programs for Speech! Literally anywhere in the country I would love to hear about, but a special interest in New England schools. Of course the cheapest programs are not always the most prestigious, or highest ranking, but I've heard that going to a big name school is not as important in this field. I know of a few programs with a cheap tuition rate, but would love to hear about schools that look more expensive but provide great funding or GA positions. Any information is appreciated, thank you guys!
  23. Just received an acceptance from this school. Anyone have information about this school? Pros/Cons? What do you like about this university? If there's any current students I would love to hear how you like the program! Or for anyone who is more familiar with the program/visited/etc.
  24. Hi, I am looking for one leveling subject which I can do from overseas, online, at my local time. The subject is head and neck anatomy, which translates to anatomy of speech and hearing I think. Has anyone had experience with Longwood, USU or UM please? I quite like the idea of Longwood, but am wondering abut the workload as it seems to have so many assessment items. There might be others online that are good, so would be grateful for any advice!
  25. I was wondering if anyone can help me. I am graduating grad school soon with a major in Speech-Language Pathology. I am looking to do my clinical fellowship year abroad in Australia; however, I need to be under the supervision of an SLP who is ASHA certified so that I can get my CCC. I contacted both ASHA and SPA but both organizations do not keep track of SLPs in Australia who are ASHA certified. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to find an SLP in Australia who is ASHA certified? I would greatly appreciate any information about this!
