  1. 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!
  2. Does anyone know when Valdosta State University normally sends out acceptances/rejections for their summer grad program?
  3. 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!
  4. Hey yall! good luck on your graduate applications. Major(s) Communication Sciences & Disorders and Psychology Which programs I am applying to: The University of Alabama; CSU Long Beach, CSU Fullerton, Florida State University, Ole Miss, ECU, Abilene Christian, Samford University. Where I am from: California, but attend The University of Alabama currently for undergrad GRE: 156 V, 154 Q, 4.7 W GPA: 4.0 major Biggest concern about my applications: GRE scores and the fact that California schools might be hesitant about accepting me having an undergraduate degree from Alabama yall feel free to fill this out yourselves and we can stress out together!
  5. 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! (:
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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!!
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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😊
  15. Hi guys!! I'm applying to speech pathology grad programs this upcoming semester and I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips and advice (on GRE scores, interview process/popular questions asked, resume tips, etc.) I'm applying to like 12 schools and just thinking about the application process is making me panic, haha. Thank you!!
  16. Hi guys! I am in the process of applying to grad schools for next fall! I am having trouble with writing the personal essays. Some of my applications give me a limit on how long but others just say brief statement. How long should I make them? Also, what is the format of these essays? Sorry, I’m just getting stressed out with all of this stuff and I still have yet to take my gre!
  17. Hi y’all! I have recently made the decision to enter this field. My undergraduate degree is in biology/chemistry, so I need to take the prerequisite courses for slp programs. Were any of y’all in the same boat? Did you take these courses prior to applying to grad schools? If so, where/which programs did you find that allowed you to take just those few classes? Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  18. Hi all! I've been lurking on here for a while and taking in all of the wonderful advice. I'm just now beginning the process of looking into programs, deciding on post-bacc/leveling options (out-of-field applicant), and putting all of the puzzle pieces together. I just applied for USU's post-bacc program. I'm mainly concerned about the letters of recommendation aspect. I graduated undergrad in 2017 with a degree in Sociology, so I feel that LOR from my professors in the soc department would not be as impressive. I currently work in Early Childhood Intervention and luckily work side by side with SLPs daily, so I think I have my bases covered there. Has anyone had luck with receiving LOR from USU professors through the online program? Also, if anyone has any advice or recommendations for making an out-of-field application stand out, I would gladly appreciate it! Looking forward to getting to know more of you as I continue this crazy process!
  19. Hi. To anyone reading this, looking for some advise. I'm from Kenya, looking to apply to a master's SLP program. There are so many options out there quite overwhelmed. Because of my international status, looking for programs which could be affordable to me. Or those with in-state offers/GA/any other form of funding. No preferences on location, open to anything that would work. I'm looking to apply for the Fall2020, and need to start alot of preparation right now. Any help/advise/tips would be appreciated!
  20. 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.
  21. Does anyone know if a recommendation letter from a CFY is acceptable to apply to grad school with?
  22. Hi all, I am a senior at Purdue who is about to apply for Graduate School coming up. Here are some of my stats... - overall GPA 3.73, major GPA 3.62 - 2 research projects with professors in autism cluster and slp program - past honor group vice president, PR, and ICR... Best Buddies member, Actress in theatre club - internship last summer with ABA Autism Center For those of you who have applied or who are applying... anything else you recommend so that I am a more competitive candidate? I have yet to take the GRE and am struggling to find SLPs who will let me shadow them. I am applying to Purdue, IU, Indiana State Uni, Ball State, Uni of Cincinnati, and a few in Chicago.
  23. 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.
  24. Hi everyone, I just had a quick question, I applied to GWU last minute for Fall 2019 about a week ago. How long did it take for them to get back to you?
  25. 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!
