  1. Hi everyone, Got into Nova's SLP winter 2020 cohort! Would love to connect with anyone else who plans on attending! We have the orientation in December, but would love to go in being familiar with anyone! (:
  2. Hi all! I am like many of you, or many of you have been, a very anxious first-time applicant for graduate school. I am very close to submitting my application, but I was wondering if anyone would be willing to read over my letter of intent, and give me some feedback? It is just a little over a page long, and for the school I am applying to, I know they say to keep it generally around a page long. I am hoping the little extra information I provided is acceptable and helpful, but maybe I need a fresh set of eyes to let me know if it is excessive. My numerical stats are fairly average... but I am hoping my letter can help give me that extra push over to the acceptance side. This is my first time doing an application of this sort, so I need all the assistance I can get - as I am fist generation and still very confused after many consultations with advisers from my school. I am so thankful for anyone who would be willing to help me out - and I can return the favor as well! Feel free to either comment or DM me (I think that's how this site works? Sorry - new to this as well!) and I will send it over. My application is due Feb 1 so hopefully I am able to finalize my letter and send my application in soon!

  4. Anyone applying to TWUs TETN Cycle 10 program? If so, what region are you in? What’re your stats?
  5. help! I graduated undergrad with a 2.5 cumulative gpa (graduated may 2019) .. does anyone have any experiences applying to schools with a gpa that low? I currently work as a manager for a speech clinic ... do you think i have any chances? i have not taken the gre yet. i hope to begin applying this year. tips?
  6. I keep seeing that California schools are notorious for taking their own students, specifically CSU's. I think the reason why is because they have SO MANY specific pre-requisites that it's nearly impossible for someone to be as 'well-matched' and competitive as their own students. I went to SDSU and have a BA in speech language hearing sciences but am not applying to SDSU. For this reason I am looking into taking some extra classes that I didn't: Aural Rehab, Clinical Methods, AAC/Autism, and Speech Sound Disorders. I have a decent GPA and decent GRE and great experience working/volunteer but I'm not sure if I'm still a strong enough candidate. I'm curious what your opinions are on this? Is it worth it to take all of the extra classes and spend time and money to "catch up" to other applicants?
  7. Hi guys!! I know for those applying to a speech-language pathology graduate program, ASHA requires you to have the 4 pre-reqs, one of which is Stats. Would anyone know if it can be any Stats, for instance Stats for Psych, or it must be plain Stats. Thank you guys in advance!
  8. Im in my 2nd semester of Speech Pathology grad school/program and already looking into internship sites for my last semester. I am trying to go into Medical Speech Path. or Early Intervention but both fields are incredibly competitive when it comes to applying for internships. What can I do now to make me look more competitive? Im obviously aiming for high grades and im doing fine so far and im writing a thesis on a medical speech path topic (and im bilingual so I guess thats a plus too) Is there anything more I can do? I cant really officially "do" observations anymore since they dont count towards my hours and I cant really show any proof I took initiative for that... ANY ideas would help (from anyone with advice applying to competitive internships!!!)
  9. Hello Everyone, I am interested in a career in SLP but, I don't know how to decided which schools are the best fit for me or how and where I go to take the prerequisites necessary for the programs (I am going back to school after several years, I have a BA in Psychology so this career change is huge for me). I guess I am looking for advice on the best ways to start this career journey given my current situation. Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!
  10. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences graduate program? I seem as though they are looking for candidacy to be accredited? I am not too sure. Any info will help! Thank you!
  11. Hi all, I just completed my application and interview for the May 2020 Speech@Emerson cohort last week. My advisor told me the turnaround time for a decision would be 3-8 weeks, however since I applied so early, it may be sooner. I'm excited because my advisor said the interview went well and everything I've submitted has looked good, but I'm a little worried because my undergrad GPA wasn't amazing. I graduated with a 3.1 cumulative, and my GRE scores were fairly average (I don't remember them off the top of my head ). I'm hoping my personal statement and interview will push the decision in my favor. Has anyone else received a decision yet? I would love to hear everyone else's experiences so far!
  12. Is apply to spring semesters of graduate school less competitive? Also for those with a GPA below 3.0 what schools did you apply to?
  13. Hi I recently took my GREs and I got a 140 (Quantitative) 145 (Verbal) with the application deadlines coming up I am nervous of not getting accepted into a program. I am applying to 10 schools and my GPA is a 3.4 in CSDCAS, I have a lot of experience and I recently just finished interning with a speech pathologist at a school. I am just nervous about my GRE scores and I am not taking them again since I have to focus on the essays and submitting.
  14. I am Ruby (26f), a Speech Language Pathology student from Missouri. I have completed all my undergraduate and graduate corse work, including my school based internship and am now having problems obtaining my final medical based 10 week internship to complete my degree and obtain my Masters. The problem is when I was 20 I was caught stealing and obtained a shoplifting charge on my record. It has been the problem of hopsitals allowing me to complete an internship. This has happened several times with different hosptials and I am really worried what can be done. I have looked into if I could get the record expunged but it doesn't appear to be so. I realize this doesn't make me sound like a great canidate but I can assure you it was a huge mistake of mine I have nothing aginst me of the like but instead have a long history of vounterring, good grades throughout my schooling, and truly a love for helping others. I'm hoping to find some people who have knoweldge of a situation of the like as I know I cannot be the only one in a situaiton like this (though my supervisors made me feel that way.) I greatly appreaciate any time spend answering me and any information that can be provided. I am hoping to find answers as I really need the help. Id be willing to give more details if it would help answer my questions. Graciously, Ruby
  15. So, I decided to take a gap year after graduation in May and now it's time to apply for the Fall 2020 cycle. I have huge anxiety about asking my professors for LOR after being graduated for a while especially knowing the type of curriculum and schedules they keep. Any advice on how to approach my previous professors? Should I ask the same professors that I agreed during the last application cycle? Also, I've been hearing about applicants from other fields using wixsite as a supplement for their resume's and CV's; has anybody done it or heard about it for SLP? Thanks!
  16. Hi, I'm new to gradcafe so if this question has been asked a lot before, my apologies, I didn't see it. A few days ago I was accepted into Emerson College's online Speech Pathology program (Sept 2019 cohort), and I was told that I'd need to pay my intent to enroll deposit within 2 weeks to secure my spot. I didn't expect the fee to be due so soon since they have both a January and May cohort as well. My top choice program is Temple University, and I will not hear back until March. Emerson's deposit is $400 and while money is tight, I'd be willing to pay the fee to secure my spot in the event that I do not get accepted into Temple. Is this a bad idea?
  17. Hi everyone! I just have a few questions.. But to give some quick background, I am applying for the Fall of 2020. I graduated as a liberal arts major and so I am now doing the sdsu essentials program online to get my pre-reqs done. By the time of application, I will have 4 done. The rest will be finished before the program starts. 1. My first question is has anyone taken their pre-reqs through sdsu essentials? Did you have a hard time transferring classes over for the grad program you applied to? Or was it okay? 2. I will only have 4 classes done when my applications are due...will that affect my admission chances? All of my 4 classes will have A's when I send them in for applications. 3. My GRE scores are Q:160 V: 151 AWA: 4. Are these scores competitive enough for California schools? Will be mainly applying to socal schools. I also have shadowing experience. Any input is helpful. Thank you and good luck to everyone ❤️
  18. How long are our CSDCAS experiences, descriptions/key responsibilities supposed to me? Is 2 brief sentences sufficient? Anyone have advice or experience with this? I've heard different answers from people.
  19. Hi! Which schools did you apply to and what were your stats? Acceptance or rejection? (looking for mostly california programs) thanks!
  20. Does anyone have any information about these programs? (SFA and LSU-SH) There's almost nothing about LSUSH on asha edfind and little on their website. I'm trying to decide if I want to add these schools to my list of apps and I need to do that pretty quick so I can get my LOR's!
  21. Hi all I'm relatively new to gradcafe (and this field admittedly) and I thought I should ask for some help before going into something with no guidance and making silly errors. I'm due to graduate this fall 2019 and I was thinking of possibly taking a gap year and apply in the next grad school cycle because I feel like my application isn't strong enough and I wanted more experience-- hence me looking into becoming an SLPA. However I already have some obstacles in order to do this. First, I don't have my 25 observation hours and I know that is required. There was a course at my university that made it possible yo get them, however I had extenuating circumstances and time conflicts that hindered me in getting my hours so I know that is the first step. Additionally, this is all very new to me and I am confused as to how the rest of the licensure process in order to become an SLPA in TX works. I was looking on both ASHA and the TDLR website and they both say that a "Speech Language Pathology Supervisory Responsibility Statement Form" is to be completed by a licensed SLP in order for them to be your supervisor. I'll paste the "Supervisory Requirement" section below: "An assistant in speech-language pathology must work under the supervision of a licensed speech-language pathologist who agrees to assume responsibility for all services provided by the assistant. You must propose a supervisory relationship with a licensed speech-language pathologist and be added to your proposed supervisor’s license before supervision may begin. Applicants should submit a Speech Language Pathology Supervisory Responsibility Statement Form (PDF) completed by the licensed supervisor who agrees to accept responsibility for the services provided by the assistant. Your supervisor must have at least two years of professional experience in providing direct client services, which may include an internship year (clinical fellowship) year. Your supervisor may not supervise more than a total of four interns and/or assistants at one time, and your supervisor must not be your parent or child. Note: Supervisors must be approved by the department prior to supervising assistants." If I am understanding correctly does that mean I need to find an SLP to take me under their wing and ask if they can be my supervisor while I apply for my SLPA license? How do I go about asking that? Would this be a job or internship? For example should I be looking for job listings for SLPA's in my city? Am I allowed to apply for the job and ask the SLP if they can be my supervisor while I start the application process for my license? I am just confused about the timeline for this. Or should I reach out to any SLP's and ask outright if they can be my supervisor while I observe and get the clinical experience required for TX standards. On ASHA it states "no fewer than 25 hours of clinical observation in the area of speech-language pathology and 25 hours of clinical assisting experience in speech-language pathology" are required, so does that mean I just need an SLP to be a supervisor for me for 25 hours for the clinical assisting experience and then also obtain 25 observation hours at the same place? There are not many SLP's in my city, and I'm not quite sure what to ask them, I just don't want to sound like an idiot. I don't know if I'm making this more difficult than it needs to be, but I thought I should ask for some clarification before reaching out to anyone. Apologies if this is all over the place and any & all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
  22. Hi all! This is my first post on here so hopefully I am posting in the correct place. I am in the process of applying to grad school for Speech Language Pathology for the Fall 2020 cycle. Needless to say, I am SO nervous!! I've taken the GRE (154V, 141Q, 5 W), and am planning on retaking this month to hopefully bolster those scores a bit. I'm an out of field applicant but completed a leveling program last year and have spent this year volunteering to hopefully get some more experience to add to my resume. My main question for anyone out there: does work experience help with SLP grad school applications at all? I currently work in an unrelated field jut to make money to pay the bills, but I recently got a job interview for a position as a Behavior Interventionist at a nonprofit that for young adults with Autism. The pay cut would be...severe, honestly. But I am willing to do whatever it takes to be the best applicant I can be so I can get into a grad school for SLP. I'm just not sure if your work experience actually helps you stand out in the application process. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thank you so much in advance for your help!! 😊
  23. How many experiences are you guys listing for your CSDCAS and CAL STATE schools? It seems really redundant to keep putting the same things that are on your resume but I understand that it helps you stand out. Any advice? Thanks!!
  24. I applied to ten schools, but I am worried about my GRE and GPA (141&142, 3.4 in overall and major). I have a lot of good experiences with research, going abroad for CSD, working in a hospital, and having leadership positions. I also transferred my junior year which was a hard transition at first. I looked at schools that my GPA fit into their averages on ASHA. Just a bit worried although I know its early!!
  25. Hello, Has anyone made the decision to attend Nova Southeastern University SLP program for winter 2020? Anyone going to the orientation in December? Anyone from California? 🙂
