  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Hi! Which schools did you apply to and what were your stats? Acceptance or rejection? (looking for mostly california programs) thanks!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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!!
  7. 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 ❤️
  8. 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!! 😊
  9. 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!!
  10. 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!!
  11. 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! (:
  12. 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? 🙂
  13. Hi guys! Good luck to everyone on your applications! I am currently on a gap year, after graduating undergrad in SPR 2019. I am preparing to apply to graduate programs in the NY area including Queens, Molloy, LIU Brooklyn, Pace, Adelphi, NYU and Brooklyn College. I have a unique background, and I am struggling to build a cohesive resume. My GPA isn't the greatest (3.57), but I'm hoping my experience outweighs this a little. I have completed 35 observation hours in both the EI and school setting. I also had the opportunity to provide therapy in my college's speech, language and hearing center under the supervision of a clinical supervisor during my senior year. I accumulated 50 hours of treatment, and worked with 5 different clients. I also completed an undergraduate research project for my senior research class. My paper included two graduate assistants, and my professor, however, I was the main researcher. Over the summer, I was able to present this work at a speech and linguistics conference at a local college. I also have volunteer work at a special needs performing arts program, and worked as a teaching assistant at a nursery school. I have to retake my GRE because my math scores are BLAH. My question is how do I put my experience into a resume? And What are my chances? I'm really nervous but I'm hoping for the best
  14. Is anyone attending the info session today on campus? Or if you went last year and have any idea what to expect, I'd be super grateful!
  15. Does anyone know when Valdosta State University normally sends out acceptances/rejections for their summer grad program?
  16. Does anyone attend this school? I understand that its a new program and I was recently accepted. Would someone be willing to answer some questions about the school? Thanks!

  18. Hey guys, this is my first time on here. I was wondering if you all could give me your honest opinions on if you think I have a shot at getting into a graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology- specifically USF/UCF/FIU/FSU. My GRE scores are a 4 AWA, 149 Verbal, and 146 Quant. My GPA is a 3.48 and I only have about a month of experience. But, I have 3 great letters of recommendations from professors and I think my Statement of Intent is good. Now, I know none of what I just said sounds (is) competitive at all. But, do you think I have somewhat of a chance of getting into... something? I've heard about Nova but the tuition is really expensive. I graduate in May 2020 too. I know I should probably take a year to bring up my GRE scores and get more experience, but (for some reason), I feel like I'm on a time crunch. Ugh, this has already turned into an essay too. I just want to see what you guys think... Thanks everyone.
  19. Hi, I'm a senior now and I am in the process of applying to grad schools for fall 2020. I recently took the gre and scored fairly bad (V:145, Q:143, writing: 4.5). I know SLP schools generally look for 150 for each section, but I am not sure if I could improve because I did study the whole summer and that's what I got. Should I try harder or try to beef up my applications some other way? I do not have research experience because it is extremely competitive at my school to get in one. I do have experience with volunteering over the summer with children who had speech sound disorders and I worked with children for a summer camp (not SLP related). Other than that I just tutor people in a linguistics course. I really want to get into grad school, just didn't leave myself much opportunity to stand out that much. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  20. Hello all! Has anyone heard anything about the University of Montana's online SLP program? I am interested in it but can not find any info on it? Is anyone in the program? Is anyone planning to apply this fall? Thanks in advance!!
  21. Hi, I'm new to gradcafe. I'm currently a 4th year student completing a psychology degree at U of T. I am planning on applying to the SLP program at U of T this year however I'm a little nervous because of my GPA. I didn't do as well in a few courses during my second year, and these courses are really weighing down my subgpa to 3.74. I have alot of research experience (two RA positons and completing my thesis) related to speech and language pathology. I am also currently volunteering with an SLP. I'm hoping that my research and volunteer experience, as well as my statement of intent, will make up for my low SubGPA. However, I'm not sure if I really have a chance, considering that most people apply with a 3.85 or higher. Any tips or suggestions to make my application stand out? Do you think its worth applying with such a low subgpa? I would relaly appreciate any advice. Thanks
  22. Hello! I’m looking into online/distance SLP grad programs. I’m already $65k in debt, so I don’t want to pay more than $15k per year (I’m located in CA so I know there’s some restrictions because of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). I have good grades (3.8+ GPA, great LoC’s and above avg GRE scores). I got accepted to emerson and NYU with scholarships but it didn’t cover enough of the cost. I really like North Colorado University, CSUN, and Akron University. Id prefer to do my clinical practice/extends hips towards the end of the program because I’m working as a nanny and committed to 1.5 years, they are flexible and will allow me to travel up to 3 weeks for clinical/labs. What is your best experience?
  23. One of the hardest parts about grad school applications is writing your statement of purpose (SOP). When I was working on mine last year, I had no idea where to start. So, instead of Googling it and ending up with a generic SOP, I attended three different open houses and asked a lot of questions to find out what schools really look for. In the end, the answer was pretty simple: Schools want to know that you can be successful academically, even when faced with obstacles. With that in mind, I made a list of the challenges I faced throughout graduate studies and picked the ones I thought would best show the qualities that SLP programs seek: persistence, dedication, confidence, and a passion for helping others. I wrote about how I worked full time and studied at night, and how I still managed to make the dean's list. I wrote about how I did not initially qualify for any graduate programs, but found out what I needed to do and persisted in meeting those requirements. "GRAD SCHOOL IS HARD!" This is what everyone tells us. Admissions committees just want to know that you are a candidate who will not give up when things get tough, and that you are a person who will go above and beyond to become a well-rounded clinician. So before you write your SOP, make an outline: What made you want to become an SLP? What challenges did you face while working on the academic requirements, and how did you overcome those challenges? What qualities do you have that helped you face those challenges? (Focus on qualities important for SLPs) What are the things the school is most proud of? (Have a unique paragraph for each school, describing what specific things made you want to go there) Why is that school the best option to help you reach your goal of becoming an SLP? When you have the answers to these questions, it will be a lot easier to start working on writing your essay. Please add any additional tips below! I know I would have loved a thread like this last year when I started working on applications!
  24. I was wondering if anybody has had experience with their Masters program and if they were comfortable sharing their stats on how they got in. Thanks!
  25. Hi everyone! I'm new here (pls be gentle😢). I know alot of people on here ask "what are my chances," but I'd really appreciate the feedback! I've become really passionate about pursuing speech-language pathology and want to start applying for grad programs fall this year. However, I don't know anyone who wants to be a SLP (except for one girl who has very different circumstances) and don't really know what to expect. I plan on applying mostly to graduate schools in NYC, but am open to other schools relatively close. So far I plan on applying to NYU, CUNY (Hunter, Queens, Lehman), St Johns, Teachers College, Baylors and Touro. So here's what I'm working with when it comes to my stats! - I'm a psych major with a current GPA of 3.8 (I still have 2 semesters left to complete my undergraduate degree but I don't expect my GPA to change since I've gotten my difficult classes out of the way lol) - My relevant experience involves over a year of working at a nonprofit for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, a few months of volunteering at an aphasia community group, and alot of teaching. - I have some research experience! Although, it's for other topics in psychology, I feel like being comfortable with research is at least good to mention? - My recommendation letters are pretty good, and one will be very strong (I've become close to my supervisor at the nonprofit). - I consider writing to be one of my strong suits so I'm not too worried about my narrative statement. Will be taking the GRE soon, so I don' t have those scores! CONS: I'm a New York resident applying to New York schools, but I've heard that apparently grad programs like taking out-of-state students because of the $$? Yikes😥 I also don't have shadowing experience and I'm not sure if it's a priority for me to get that done. ALSO, because my university doesn't have a communicative sciences and disorders major or related classes, I took all my prerequisites at 2 different online schools. My grades in those classes are good, but will getting prereqs done online be looked down upon? Any advice and general comments would be super appreciated!! Good luck to everyone else and their studies😊
