  1. HI! I'm interested in applying to SLP online programs. The ones I'm interested in are Baylor, Emerson and NYU for January 2020. Is anyone else also applying? Or is anyone currently in any of these programs? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  2. This is my 4th time applying to grad school. I have been wait listed or denied everywhere I have applied for the last 4 years. For 3 of the 4 years I have worked and tried to do something in the field of speech pathology or close to it. I was a teachers aide for one year and the last 2 years I have worked in Florida at a middle school under a provisional license as a SLP maintaining a caseload of 70 students, writing IEP's, completing evaluations, working with AAC, etc. I had all the roles and responsibilities of a Masters Level SLP, but I was under the provisional license. I've had strong letters of recommendation written for me, I'd like to think my statement of purpose was strong as I had it edited by tons and tons of SLP's in the school district I am working in currently. In undergrad I was involved in CSD groups, had a job through the university mentoring incoming CSD freshman. My cumulative GPA was a 3.2, my GRE was verbal- 145, qualitative- 145, writing- 4. I am so frustrated being denied over and over again. When do you throw in the towel and say this just isn't meant for me? Although, it is also your biggest passion.
  3. Hello! My name is Natalie, and I am a Canadian student who has recently been accepted to the University of Sydney's masters of Speech Pathology Program (SLP). I am wondering if there is anyone who has gone through the program that I could speak to? I have already lived in Sydney for 3 years so I know all about the city and the costs and all that, but I have a few questions about the course itself. How much "time off" do you get? I am hoping to be able to come home to Canada on breaks, but I am not sure how much time off you really get with placements and all that. As well, how many days a week are you actually on campus? I'm just trying to work out whether or not I'll need to move apartments in order to make it work. Any information that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much
  4. 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!
  5. Hi! I am an undergraduate SLP student and I am starting the process of grad school apps this summer. I am completely freaking out. I have never been the best student...mainly cause I have never really found anything I'm interested in. I have been doing a LOT of research online about different programs and what they look at...I've been noticing a lot of people say that most schools look at your class 60 credits...I truly do believe my last 60 credits would help my chances ALOT. Does anybody know how to calculate the GPA for your last 60 credits? And does anyone in the NY area maybe know of the schools that look at your last 60 credits? THANK YOU 😉

    Praxis

    Those that are currently in graduate school and/or just graduated. I would super appreciate details regarding the praxis! What should my focus be on? Any specific topics? thank you in advance
  7. Hi everyone, I'm starting my post-bac program next fall and looking at starting to take non-speech pre-requisite courses now. What I'm looking for is an online statistics course offered by a community college/university, but have had a hard time finding one that matches what I need. *Asynchronous online classes *No requirement to go to the actual class for taking tests etc. *No pre-req required Please let me know if any of you know of a class that meets my needs. Thank you!
  8. In April I received a reject from CSU EAST BAY for extended-MS in SLP followed by an admit for Post- bacc B.S. in SLP. I accepted the admit for UW post-bacc in BS SLP and now I have an email asking for interview from EAST BAY. I am in dilemma as to what to do? The points here are:- 1. B.S. requires me to do 75 extra credits apart from 50 mandatory credits included in post-bacc program. The extra credits include subjects from I&S, VLPA all of which are completely not related to SLP. 2. I am not sure what extra classes East bay asks the students to take for the extended masters program. 3. I do know that ranking wise UW is way above East bay, but does it affect the job prospects after graduation? (I am aware that if I choose UW, I will have to apply for masters next year and go through admission process again) But will Post -bacc from UW make my profile strong? I am personally interested in medical SLP and want to gain my experience in that. Any suggestions would be thankful and help me in taking my final decision.

    Stockton NJ

    Does anyone know if there's a facebook group, groupme, or anything for Stockton? I accepted my spot off the wait list a few weeks ago and want to talk to some people!
  10. Has anyone heard from Valdosta, or happen to know when they might get decisions out? I've seen from posts in the past people mentioning their status changing to "under review" or something along those lines and mine does not say that yet.

    Online or reapply?

    I got accepted to NYU and Emerson's online SLP programs recently but both are very expensive. Also, Emerson's program has clinical placements starting very soon (I work) and I'd have to take a pre-requisite that would put me back another $4k. I only applied to these two schools because I didn't have the GRE/letters of rec figured out before the CSDCAS deadline. I was banking on financial aid to help me since I'm now considered an independent and got an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $0. I submitted it sorta late, like mid April and added the two schools last week. I already have ~$60k of debt and don't want to go into any more. I have decent stats; 151V, 149Q, 4.5W 3.84 cumulative, 3.75 department GPA and lots of experience with research/ABA. Should I pick NYU/Emerson or should I reapply next year, pay off some loans and then choose?

    Speech@NYU/ Speech@Emerson online

    I recently got admitted to both Speech@NYU and Speech@Emerson and I'm most concerned about the tuition (Emerson- $67k, NYU- $82k). Do you know if they offer financial aid/scholarships/grants? I have an estimated family contribution (EFC) of 0000, so I'm hoping that they might offer me some sort of aid. My stats are: 156V, 151Q, 4.5W
  13. Hey everyone! I recently got off the waitlist and have accepted an offer for attendance. I’ve seen there hasn’t been a group made? Anyone out there started the process, how do you feel? I’m from california and I’m so nervous and anxious because i have some prereqs to finish but I’m excited. Any places you have all looked? I’ve looked around Clovis and portales but not sure yet.

    GRE advice

    I need some advice about retaking the GRE. I was hoping to be accepted and not need to retake it, but that did not work out. I was frustrated with my testing experience. I prepped as much as I could for several months before the test despite dealing with personal issues and being a caregiver to a relative at home who passed away last fall. My Verbal score was 141, Quant 142 and AW 3.0. Note, that was my first attempt at taking the test. When I took the verbal section, I remember accidentally skipping at least 5 questions and could not go back to finish them. 😥 I studied from the ETS books but I took the test feeling unprepared with how difficult it actually was. Is Magoosh really as beneficial as a lot of people made it out to be? I'm kind of stumped as to how to study for it again. Any advice would be amazing! Thanks
  16. 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

    SJSU SLP Master's Waitlist

    Hi everyone! I know that there are people that have already hear back from SJSU's SLP Master's program, but for us that haven't... Does anyone know what's going on? Are they still sending out acceptances or is their cohort already full? If you have any information, please share
  19. I got into my dream school (Columbia)... but will need to take out an insane amount of loans to pay for tuition & cost of living. vs. attending a state school which will be almost free with a few scholarships i got. I don't know if going to an ivy league will benefit myself and my career... or if it doesn't matter and the loans are not worth it. They have an amazing program and offer a lot more than the state school especially for medical slp. I want to become a professor possibly eventually and think maybe a masters from Columbia would make a difference. Some people say, the better school is worth it and others say go where you'll have the least amount of loans If anyone has any advice would greatly appreciate it!!! Especially if you were in this position before :)
  20. Trying to see if anyone has heard from St. Augustine! I had my interview two weeks ago and was told I should expect an update between 2-3 weeks from the admissions board via email. I thought that was a little odd due to the fact that the deadline is dec 15th. Wanted to see if anyone else is waiting to hear if they got in!
  21. Hey guys! I don't know why i'm on here but I decided to gather opinions. I am currently a junior majoring in Communicative Disorders. I am on track to graduate a semester early (which is Fall 19), and so I want to apply for a graduate program for Fall 2020. I am unsure if I want to do SLP or AUD b/c there are pros/cons for both careers. I will list them below: Pros/Cons: for SLP: I want to work in hospitals in pediatrics, but there aren't many opportunities for SLPs in that setting, from my understanding. I DO NOT want to be in the school system, and i'm afraid I will end up doing that if I decide to go the SLP route. Pros/Cons for AUD: I like AUD, and I still want to work with Pediatrics, but I'm nervous about the job outlook/pay for AUDs (especially with paying for doctoral school). I also feel like AUD is being good with a lot of technology, which i'm okay with, but i'm just unsure. I will be getting hands on experience this summer, so maybe that'll answer my questions? Has anyone majoring in CD went a completely different route outside of SLP/AUD? I don't regret being in my major, i'm just wondering if there are other opportunities outside of SLP/AUD?
  22. I had a really great impression of CSUEB when I visited for their department tour, but I've heard a lot more about SJSU through current students and they had mostly good things to say about it. A downside to SJSU seems like the administration is a little unorganized. In addition, i'm interested in learning more about aphasia and it seems like CSUEB's aphasia treatment program is more established than SJSU's. Tuition and commute are about the same for both, so those aren't major factors for me (although since i'm an extended master's student, CSUEB is at least an extra summer long). A bummer about CSUEB is that they're very particular which courses you take to satisfy ASHA requirements, which means I'd probably have to take classes at a CC this summer, but I know that's a minor con and they claim that those courses maximize preparation to practice as an SLP. I would also very much like to eventually have a hospital placement and prepare myself for medical SLP, but I'm not sure if I'm more likely get placed in a hospital at one school than the other. Any input on either of these programs or other factors to consider would be great!!! Side question: i know that for clinicals i'll have to compete with my peers for the same hospitals, so any tips on maximizing your chances of securing clinical experience (or even a job down the line) at a hospital? i'd love to hear about people's experiences :))
  23. Hi, I want to reach out to other older students and see how your experience of the school-finding and application process has been. I'm 47 and leaving a career in marketing to pursue SLP. Just wondering if there are others out there in similar situations, and if so, how are you doing with all of this?
  24. Hi everyone! I officially committed to attending University of the Pacific's Master's in Speech-Language Pathology starting Fall 2019, and I wanted to see if there are any people out there who are also attending this fall! I will be part of the 24 month cohort, and I'm originally from Northern California but currently live in Chicago. I know it's not April 15 yet (big day is tomorrow!), but if anyone knows of a Facebook group of students who are attending, can you post the link here? Can't wait to meet you!
  25. I applied for SLP graduate programs and was not successful with being offered admission. I was waitlisted at one school but received an email stating their cohort was full. I'm disappointed 😕 Perhaps it's a good thing. There is a lot going on in my personal life right now. I don't have stellar grades and I did awful on the GRE (I hate the idea of retaking it-I studied a lot the first time!) Some words of encouragement and positivity would be lovely ❤️
