  1. Anyone applying to Speech@Emerson for the January 2021 cohort? The GRE scores for this term have been waived, but should I still provide mine if I took them in summer of 2018? I got 4.5 writing, 148 Quant and 158 Verbal. My cum GPA was 3.5, but I majored in literature for my undergrad so I have none of the prereqs done. The admissions counselor told me this wouldn't be a problem, but I'm still a little uncertain.
  2. I'm considering applying to some Canadian universities for a Master of Science (Applied) in "Speech and Language Pathology" to start September of 2021. I noticed a thread hadn't been started up yet. 👋 😷 📚
  3. Hi! Mini-vent time!! So I'm kind of experiencing anxiety at the moment trying to apply for grad school. I've emailed 2 professors 2-3 times over the last month asking if they'd be able to write letters on my behalf and no responses. I currently have a SPED professor writing me a letter and a former supervisor agree to write me one. As backups, I have two SPED teachers I worked alongside, my current supervisor (principal at a school), and an assistant principal from my current work site. I haven't asked any of my backups yet because I wanted to have 2 or 1 CSD professor on board. I'm aware of remote learning occurring at my university too, so I'm sure all professors emails are swapped. 😥 I'm worried about the possibility of one falling thru, having no CSD professors to write me letters; therefore causing me to put applying on hold. I'm aware a lot of admission committees want to hear from other CSD professors about academics and the ability to be successful in graduate school. Sometimes I feel like having most of my letters coming from supervisors or colleagues may work against me, *shrug* My major GPA was a 3.3, but last 60 units wad a 3.58. Cumulative GPA was a 3.4. Low GRE scores (280, AW: 3.00) and I'm studying to retake it. A lot of extra curricular activities when I was in school, worked in special education was an paraprofessional, ABA therapy.. I really need some encouragement right now. It just feels like bad timing, idk. Is anyone else experiencing or faced this dilemma before?
  4. Hello! Hope everyone is having a great Friday. I finished a draft of my personal statement for one of the schools I'm applying to. Would anyone like to read it and give me some feedback/constructive criticism? Thanks in advance 😁
  5. So I've been observing an slp over the summer via teletherapy. She had a grad student doing their externship there as well, and many of the first sessions I watched were conducted by the grad student with the slp observing on zoom. I'm trying to create a log sheet for the slp to sign off on but I'm not sure if I should put in the supervisor column the grad student and the slp or just put the slp? The other half of the summer it was just the slp conducting the session. Anyone have any advice?
  6. I was wondering typically when ENMU sends out their decisions? I’m applying for Spring 2021! Anyone else?
  7. Ok I'm freaking out. Just looked at the bill for the online sap 2nd bachelor program and it's more than 13,000 for the first semester. Please tell me that's a mistake. I am out of state, but it clearly says everywhere I've checked that online classes for out of state students is tuition only, $359 per credit. I enrolled in 18 credits, how is this 13,000?? I'm calling the financial office tomorrow, but I'm freaking out and just wanted to see if maybe someone else has been billed wrong or went last year and knows the cost.
  8. IDK if this is allowed but... Would anyone be willing to genuinely critique my letter of intent? I have about a week before I need to send it to the people writing me letters. It's mostly done but its not great. It covers all the basis IMO but has no passion because I've been so worried about it coming off as cliche. I've done impressive stuff and I LOVE the field but Idk how to write it to show that beyond just stating facts. I want so badly to get into graduate school for spring but this letter may not do it 😥 Link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n2UO3RWUrSVYLhfn28aJAqsOFFiuJZsuayHdYYadPsw/edit?usp=sharing
  9. How did you decide whether or not you should do a post-bacc or just take courses separately? How did you know for sure that the courses you took were fulfilling prerequisites? If you did a post-bacc but then still had to do another requirement after post-bacc because each school has different requirements, how did you find out you were missing this requirement? What is the cheapest post-bacc available? Anyone in the same boat as me where as a linguist and cogsci minor (or as other majors/minors), you took a lot of similar courses to prerequisites but ones that don't fit the pre-requisites perfectly?
  10. I am struggling to find information about New York University's funding opportunities for students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program. Do they offer any funding in the form of scholarships, grants, research assistantships, graduate assistantships, etc?
  11. Hi guys! I’m applying to UGA and GSU for my masters in CSD. Is there anyone who attends these two universities that can share what stats and experiences you have that got you into the program?
  12. Hey everyone! I am a BCBA and will be starting the SLP leveling program at the University of St. Augustine in the Fall of 2020. Any other BCBA's or people who have worked in ABA out there who have taken either the leveling courses or started their Master's at USAHS? Would love some info/advice! VERY excited to start this journey!!!
  13. Hi! I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer and am now in AmeriCorps. I'm looking to pursue a Master's in speech-language pathology/communication sciences and disorders next fall. There is only one official grad program for this field covered by Coverdell (Bowling Green State of Ohio), but I'm here to see if any other RPCVs pursuing SLP found significant financial support at their grad schools. Thanks in advance!
  14. Hello everyone! So I'm currently completing my pre requisite courses to gain entrance into a SLP masters programs in my state. I graduated with a 2.57 GPA and it seems as though so far its all 3.0 GPA cut off. I'm completing 11 courses from USU that will transfer to these programs. So far I've gotten B+, while working full time and taking care of family during these moments. I wanted to write this and hear from others out there who have been in similar situations and what you decided to do. I am willing to put in the work to reach the criteria but is it a realistic goal for me to have? Did it work out for anyone out there? I am committed to becoming an SLP but I am also realistic. Thanks guys,
  15. Hello everyone, I've been fortunate enough to have been accepted to multiple SLP graduate programs where I have the option to choose whether I want to go out of state (as far away from home as 15 hours) or stay in the state where I received my undergraduate degree. After finishing my master's, I hope to move back to the area where I finished my undergraduate degree. I figure this might be my last opportunity before starting my career where I am able to get a "once in a lifetime experience". I was just wondering if there are any of you who are currently attending an SLP grad school out of state OR are planning on attending an out of state program? What are some pros/cons of attending an out of state program?
  16. Hi everyone! I am a 4th year neuroscience major at UCLA. I am hoping to apply to a post-bacc or leveling SLP program soon after I graduate; however, I am pretty concerned that my low GPA will hinder any chance I have at getting accepted into one. My GPA is currently a 3.14 (with only about 30 units left to make any difference), I am doing better in my classes this quarter but don't think I have enough room to get it much higher than a 3.2. UCLA's neuro undergrad program is notorious for being a GPA killer, would grad programs take that into consideration? I have interned for a year at a baby sign language company where I work with typical and atypical children between the ages of 4 months and 3 years. I have a few other things on my resume such as work, volunteering as an English instructor, being part of a capstone research team & I am hopefully going to be working at the UCLA Language Lab next quarter. I also plan to shadow in the next quarter as I won't be taking any classes. The only relevant SLP courses that I've taken are (1) auditory neuroscience of speech perception and vocal communication (received an A) & (2) a comm class called science of language (currently enrolled and on track for an A). I have not taken the GRE yet. I plan to apply to Chapman's post-bacc program later this year, and the rest of my list (i.e. NYU, CSUN, CSU East Bay, SJSU, University of Redlands, University of the Pacific). Can anyone tell how I fair as an out-of-field major? Do I have a shot? Also do you have any recommendations for what I should do to compensate for my low GPA and become a more competitive applicant? Please let me know, I would so appreciate any help!
  17. I'm applying to schools in Canada in the future, but I heard you might have to travel to clinical placements. Do you have to drive around a lot? Or live and pay rent in another place while in school? I'm wondering if this will be an issue since I can't drive. Thanks
  18. Does anyone know when the CSUF Post Bacc application will open for fall 2021? I emailed Dr.Tsao and I got an automated reply that said she can’t reply until Mid-August. also, does anyone know if they will waive the cbest requirement? i can’t find ANY testing centers open and covid19 is spiking even more.
  19. I am very excited to start grad school in the fall. I often feel as though I’m “missing” something. There’s so much information out there on SLP that I haven’t seen. So I wanted to ask those who have already started their career as an SLP, what are some things you wish you had known before you graduated? Is there anything that would’ve made you reach your goals more efficiently or made the process easier? For example, my ultimate goal is to move to Boston and work in a children’s hospital, do you have any advice? Do you have any externship advice? Thanks!
  20. Hi! I know this forum is for graduates but I am trying to get advice on what supplies I might need to invest in and what I will need to do to make myself stand out when I am applying for graduate school. I am completing my undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences online through Arizona State University Online and would love any advice on items I might buy to help me learn since I will not have an in-person class experience or any words of advice! Since I am also online I was hoping for advice on suggestions to help make connections with professors that I will never see face to face to help me get meaningful and personable letters of recommendation when the time comes to apply for graduate school. (I have already gotten involved with local SLP's and SLP practices in my hometown in hopes to build connections for valuable letters of recommendations when the time comes).
  21. I am currently preparing my applications for SLP graduate school. I know some schools ask for a resume and some do not. For the schools that do require a resume should I include summer jobs I have held while in college? The two jobs are forever 21 and Cengage learning warehouse. They have nothing to do with speech pathology and I fear may make my resume unfocused. Should I still include these two jobs to show I was working during summers or should I remove them to keep my resume more focused? Thanks in advance!!!
  22. Hi Everyone, On University of Saint Augustine's website it states they accept applicants from California. It also states that students from some states will have to complete additional requirements in graduate school to work in the school setting. Does anyone know if that is the case for California? I have an interview there next week but I'm hesitant to go because I'm worried a master's there won't allow me to work in the school setting in CA. https://www.usa.edu/college-of-rehabilitative-sciences/master-science-speech-language-pathology-ms-slp/ms-slp-accreditation/
  23. Hello everyone. I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy during the current health pandemic. For those of you who recently graduated or are expecting to graduate soon, did you complete your medical externship through teletherapy? If so which teletherapy companies are open to students?
  24. Hi friends! I was originally expressing interest to apply to ENMU's Spring 2021 Cohort for Speech Pathology, but when I received the email that they were still accepting applicants for Fall, I sent my application and was provisionally accepted! I am about to start a few prerequisites on Monday, but I am excited to get going. I graduated undergrad three years ago, so I am excited to get back into the swing of things. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the classes, how vigorous they are, etc. Also, I am looking for others in my cohort! I searched for a FB page but couldn't find one.. Excited to get to know people and potentially find roommates for Spring semester! I feel very late to the game!
  25. I just received an email from the CSDCAS stating that some programs are accepting more applications. Why do you think that is? I would think each school would be full by now or have waitlists with students waiting to be accepted. This is my first round of applications so I am wondering if this is normal or due to COVID.
