    Hi! Wanted to start a thread for those who were accepted to CU Boulder! I was accepted and will be attending in the Fall. I AM SO EXCITED. Is anyone else pretty sure or strongly considering Boulder?? I will also be at the open house! Anyone going to that? I know for people flying in it's a holiday weekend. For people applying to Fall 2019 who might end up reading this thread my stats: I only applied to CU Boulder and was accepted into the 3 yr program. This is my second year applying to the 3 year program (so don't give up) I am from Colorado. I had a 3.67 gpa in Biology and, 155 Q 159 V 4.5 AW. I worked as a caregiver to a teenager with Autism, ABA, a substitute early childhood special ed para, and had hundred of hours shadowing. I had three professors and one former boss write my letters. I also had a lot of "unique" life experience, I served the homeless for two years and was able to talk about that in my personal statement including the SLPs I knew who worked with the homeless. I attended a very early information session in Oct where the presenter gave a TON of helpful information. I worked very very hard on my personal statement that had a decent amount of personality and voice and was by no means dry. I had a ton of people read it! I think out of everything my personal statement was my strongest. Good luck to all who apply next yr!

    2018 Canadian SLP Thread

    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!
  3. Hey ya'll, I have been waitlisted to Loyola Maryland and was told that I was on the first tier within the three tiers. Today I received an email saying that they accepted the first group of people off of the waitlist and I was not one of them. Has this happened to anyone else OR Does anyone else know how many people have been waitlisted from Loyola Maryland SLP School?
  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!

    University of Delaware

    I recently was accepted to UDel and will most likely be attending in the fall. I am wondering if anyone knows anything about their clinical placements? Most schools seem to have lists of placement sites on their websites but I can't find one for UDel (unless I'm just blind). I'm wondering about where they place their students as well as if it is possible to do any outside of the Delaware/Philly area in summer/winter sessions (my guess is no based on the course load). Any other information about UDel's program is also appreciated, even if it has nothing to do with placements! If you are a current student please let me know if you would recommend it.
  6. It's definitely on the early side, but I figured I might as well start the 2018 version of this thread! (I was just procrastinating studying for finals searching for a Facebook group for my chosen program, and I found last year's version of this post.) Definitely more efficient than scanning the Results page, etc. If you create a group, please post a link here! When others commit to a school, they can find the groups here. Congrats to everyone, and best of luck to all those still waiting and/or deciding!
  7. Hi guys! I'm going to FHSU for grad school next semester and I was wondering if there's anybody on this forum who can tell me what the program's like. I've talked with some of the faculty and the program director, but I'd like to get a student's perspective. What should I expect my first semester? What is the Herndon clinic like? How did you like your professors and supervisors?
  8. I am currently reading about grad school on here and reddit and stressing myself out about not getting into grad school. I am still going to remain positive and try my best (despite my lower GPA), but I'm also looking into backup plans, just to be safe. I'm currently working in a school district doing intervention, but that is not a career. I know teaching is an obvious back up but I'm just not sure that's for me. So what are some of yalls backup plans? Whether it is persuing a second bachelors, a Masters in a different field, or a certificate type program. Just curious!

    Gallaudet University

    Hello everyone, So I'm starting the application process for grad schools and my top choice is Gallaudet University. I minored in ASL and want to work with d/Deaf and hard of hearing clients. Their website doesn't have much information about the program including the size, acceptance, financial aid, scholarships/GA positions, etc. Are any of you planning on applying here/attending right now? I'd love to hear about your experience and any other information you might have about the program. Thanks!
  10. Hi all! I am about to apply for the Post bacc program in Communication Disorders at SUNY New Paltz. Anyone who applied before notice that the app doesnt require a letter of rec? Am I reading it wrong? Just want to be 100% sure. Any tips for writing a good statement of purpose? I have never written one before. Also, any other speech post bacc programs online that allow start in the Spring or late fall? I only noticed Northwestern but that one is too expensive. Thanks!
  11. 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

    ENMU CDIS Cohort Fall 2017

    Hey everyone! I just got my acceptance letter in the mail last week for Fall 2017! Anyone else hear back from the school? I'm excited to meet everyone & I'm trying to find 3 female roommates in the CDIS Graduate program to live with at the San Juan Village.
  13. I was recently admitted to ENMU’s communication disorders program and North Carolina central university. I’m still debating between the two programs and would like any kind of feedback from ENMU past graduates. How are the professors? Classes? Is it fairly easy to get placed in an externship? How is the location of the university? Also ENMU tuition is significantly cheaper than NCCU’s even though it’s the same program.
  14. Has anyone heard back from case western reserve speech language pathology grad program? Their deadline was Jan 15th and I’m getting worried.

    Mail or Email?

    I am getting a letter from Jackson State University today I saw from a service called Informed from the post office where you can see what you'll be getting in the mail, but I know people received acceptant and rejected letters through email. Why would I be getting a letter through the mail, instead of my email where I have been getting updates from? I'm just curious. Thanks!

    Which school have you decided to attend? Did you get into your top school and already commit? Have you decided but haven’t told the school yet? Have you declined offers from other schools? April 15th is a bit away, but this will still be here then! Connect with others attending your school
  17. Sorry ahead of time because this is going to be a long post, but I'm in need of advice and a little reassurance. I graduated in May with my BA in Speech-Language Pathology. My first 2 years of college were tough, I was going through some personal things and dealing with sickness and depression and you could tell by my grades. I withdrew from all of my classes one semester but I honestly should've taken at least a year off to get back on track and motivated, but I didn't want to sit out for that long. I transferred to a different university and my last 2 years I improved A LOT, I mean I wasn't getting a 4.0, but still good grades. My first 2 years drug my GPA down a lot, but I love the field so much I'm going to try my best for grad school. I'm trying to apply to schools that look at the last 60 hours GPA and/or use a formula score (with your last 60 GPA and GRE score) like at Southeastern in Hammond, Louisiana. My GRE score is average, I got pretty bad test anxiety when I took it so I'm studying a lot right now and plan to retake it this summer and improve my score. I'm trying to make myself look better for grad school since I'm lacking in GPA, so I'm working as a Reading Interventionist at my local elementary school and I'm wanting to volunteer with something speech related for the summer. I live in a small area though so there aren't very many opportunities. I've gotten very discouraged looking at different program requirements and posts on here and considered just going into teaching, but at my job I've gotten pulled to sub so many times and dealing with that many children at once, I just don't think it is for me. Any advice on specific programs or jobs/volunteer opportunities that will help me increase my chances of getting in? Thanks in advance!
  18. Has anyone been accepted to Texas A&M Kingsville TAMUK? What are the pros and cons of going to this school for Speech-Language Pathology? Thank you!
  19. Hi everyone! I just checked on my portal for Jackson State University and the status went from "Received-Completed" to "Received-Decisioned"...Does anyone know what that means? I still haven't received any email from them. Thanks!

    Doubting my abilities

    I'm super excited that I have been accepted to a program! But I'm starting to worry that I won't be successful in classes or be a good clinician. I know I was chosen for a reason, I keep reminding myself that even though I was accepted off the waitlist that it doesn't change anything. The program I'll be attending is very competitive and very highly ranked which makes me nervous I won't be able to keep up with their standards. Anyone else feeling the same way? Any advice for getting over what I am feeling?
  21. Wanted to get in touch with those planning on attending Fredonia for the Speech Language Pathology program, Fall 2018 start!
  22. HI! So I'm new to Portland and I just got accepted to Pacific University! However, it's in Forest Grove and I've heard ppl dont live there usually if in the masters program. So I wanted to know what areas do you current students live in or suggest? THANKS
  23. Any SLP grad students recently admitted to Case Western Reserve University (class of 2020)? I was out of town during the in-person interview day so I haven't met anyone yet and would like to before July.
  24. I am currently waitlisted at 5 schools and have no acceptances yet. I took the bulk of my pre-reqs through a post-bac program, but each of these remaining schools has one or two random classes that weren't included. I've registered at various schools for the 5 classes I could possibly need to take, with a plan of dropping if I get rejected or only taking the ones I need for the school I end up going to. But now that May is approaching I'm realizing classes will start soon and I may not hear from the waitlists until later in May or even June. I will be absolutely crushed if I drop a class and then get an acceptance in June but don't have a pre-req filled. If I stay in all of the classes hoping for an acceptance, that means taking 5 classes over the summer while working full time (the most I've taken at once was 3 and that pretty hellish) and also the cost would be over $7,000 if I take all 5 at once! (Could put on credit card but that's pretty terrifying considering my chances here!) I am so torn about what to do and would love to hear from anyone with suggestions.

    Note taking during class

    I was wondering what you guys are planning on doing for note taking during class. For undergrad I hand wrote all of my notes, but I don't think that would be useful during grad school. All of my classes are 3 hours long. I was considering typing them on my laptop either in a google doc, or if the professor uses a powerpoint to lecture I was going to type notes from the lecture into the note section on the powerpoint. Since I will be walking to class (around a mile each way) I am worried about how the weather (rain) might damage my laptop. Also my laptop can be somewhat unpredictable with it's battery life, and since I'm not in a place where I can afford to buy a new one I was just curious to see what others are doing
