    ONLINE SLP GRAD SCHOOL

    HI EVERYONE! I am in my mid 20s applying to online grad school, I was wondering what a typical work load for online grad school looks like, and what are some difficulties youve faced other than time management...I keep hearing that grad school is WAY more challenging then under grad, but thats also whats told to kids in HIGHSCHOOL that college is WAY harder. I didnt find my undergrad in CSD too bad, the tough times were short lived... Also since I am entering my mid 20s, its a where I am thinking about starting a family with my husband, if you have any experience with online slp grad school and a baby, PLEASE SHARE IT WITH ME!! THANK YOU!!
  3. Hello! I am applying for spring 2019 speech language pathology graduate programs. Many of the forums I’ve seen are for fall applicants, so I thought I would create one for those of us applying to spring admit programs. Most of the due dates have passed now, so I’m just waiting each day for some good news. -Where did you apply? -Any thoughts or concerns?

    TWU TETN Cycle 10

    Anyone applying to TWUs TETN Cycle 10 program? If so, what region are you in? What’re your stats?
  5. 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!
  6. Would anyone be willing to look over my personal statement(s) for Speech-Language Pathology Master's programs? It would be great to have thoughts from objective outsiders, whether you're familiar with SLP/CSD or in a completely different field. I'm willing to look over statements in return! I've always really loved editing, and I have experience as a tutor and as an editor of resumes/cover letters, which is related. 😂
  7. I am thinking about applying to NYU's distance program. Any current students willing to share thoughts of the program and stats? DM if you'd prefer
  8. What better place to find people to share application anxiety with? I haven't seen another thread like this yet so here we go. Which programs are you applying to? Where are you from? What are your biggest concerns about applications? I'll start. I'm applying to a grand total of two schools (I'm obviously crazy) because I want to be on campus and I have to stay in VA. I'm looking at JMU and Longwood and honestly don't know what my chances are but I'm going to try to be optimistic. Figured I'd start applications early on CSDCAS but maaaan this process is waaay slower than I had anticipated! I'm so excited for grad school though!
  9. Hi there, I'm looking for advice as a non-traditional applicant. I have really been wanting to go back to school for my masters in SLP. I received my first bachelors in 2015 in the field of communication. I currently work as a business analyst in IT full time. Early this year I began taking some pre-requisite coursework in communicative science/disorders. My goal was to apply this year for a fall 19. However, I really didn't feel like I had a strong application. I did not do well in undergrad....I finished with a 2.89 I believe and Gre scores not impressive 140/152. So I wanted to take this year to really improve my chances. I can't go back and fix my GPA the courses I bombed were completely unrelated and I was told if they weren't relevant to what I want to now I shouldn't re-take them. What I have done is ensure that I do well in whatever courses I am taking now....my GPA is probably about a 3.7-3.8 with the classes I am taking through Utah State University. The two areas where I really need help is gaining experience and my letter of recommendations. Although not mandatory I would really like to get some volunteer or observation hours. However no one has gotten back to me, does anyone have any advice for being able to get a volunteering opportunity. I was thinking of asking one of my old professors to write me one, getting one from any volunteering opportunity, and I'm planning on taking one or two CSD classes at any college near me with the goal of getting a LOR. The classes I am currently taking are online and pre-recorded. We don't have any contact with the professor so I didn't want to ask for a LOR for any of the online classes I've taken. I've been feeling kind of discouraged lately so I'm looking for any advice from anyone who's taken a non-traditional route into this field. -Michelle
  10. 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!!!

    Emerson distance

    People who have been accepted to emerson distance. How long did it take to hear back? Also share your stats! Thanks
  12. Hey! Is anyone applying to or currently attending grad school at Bridgewater? I'm trying to figure out the deal with the prerequisites. I got my BS in CSD so I have all the prerequisites, except the 100-level math and 100-level biology. At my undergrad program, we were allowed (nay, highly recommended) to take Nutrition for our biological science requirement, and I took Statistics but didn't take any other math course. To clarify, does Bridgewater require you to take a second, non-Stats math course? And is there any way Nutrition could count for my bio requirement? If I need to take extra courses I'd debate applying at all, since I'm out of school and currently working abroad which would make fulfilling those requirements a bit of a hassle. Is there any possibility that I could take those classes alongside the grad coursework? I'd also love to talk to anyone who's attending Bridgewater to know more about the program, since it's so new! Thanks.

    Last 60 Credit Hours

    Hi everyone! I am beginning the process of applying to Grad school for Speech Language Pathology. Does anyone know of any schools that only look at your last 60 credit hours or only your CSD major gpa? I have grades from a community college 10 years ago that are really tanking my cumulative gpa. Thanks!
  14. 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!

    UW postbac SLP

    I am a senior student majored in linguistics in China. I am very interested in speech language pathology and would like to apply a master program of SLP in United States, but my GPA is low (3.40 for the first 3 year and maybe only 3.27 by WES) and most of what I've learned is about Chinese not English. And Chinese course structure is quite different from that in States so I'm not sure whether my prerequisite courses are valid. I've completed a 3-month clinical observation of audiology in a Chinese hospital, and will begin to observe the clinical work of a CCC-SLP in Shanghai next month. I learned Chinese Sign Language, and a little bit ASL. I am working on my BA thesis about the speech sounds of kids with CI implants. I now plan to take a postbac program in 2019 to get a systematic training in SLP so that I can prepare better for a master program in 2020. UW is my dream school but I learned that its postbac program is quite competitive. On UW website their complete details of 2019 postbac program haven't showed up yet. Can anybody who has done this program be so kind to give me some advice? Do I have to apply to CSDCAS or do the WES credential evaluation? Does this program need the personal statement, writing sample or some other materials? Do I need to take an interview? Thanks a lot!!!
  16. Hey everyone! I wrote a little thing about my journey through my 20s, getting through graduate school, and now dealing with my hefty amount of student loans. Views and shares help me win. So Read away! Thank you! https://www.studentloanplanner.com/speech-language-pathologist-helping-others/

    ASHA Student Volunteer

    Hey! I've applied for the student volunteer position at the ASHA convention for this year and I'm wondering if anyone else has done it before and do you know how long it takes for them to get back to us? I know they say before October 6th or something, but has anyone ever heard back sooner?? Thanks!
  18. Hey yall! I am planning on applying for SLP programs that start Summer 2019 or Fall 2019, depending on the program. I spent three years at a small private school where I majored in elementary education and special education. I realized my true calling was in SLP so I transferred schools to pursue these dreams. I had spent over a year and a half unhappy with my education major and finally got up the courage to transfer. I decided to transfer the August of what would have been my senior year and it was the hardest decision ever! At my old school, I had a 3.7 GPA, over 200+ volunteer hours in Title I schools, was hugely involved in the community outside of campus with community service as well as being involved on campus, in a sorority, and worked my entire time in school. I was able to finish my B.S. in Communication Sciences in Disorders in two years (SO PROUD OF MYSELF!), but as a result my overall GPA suffered. I had a 3.3 overall GPA, 3.2 GPA in CSD courses, and a 3.275 GPA for my last 60 hours. I have the 25 shadowing hours per ASHA requirements...not sure how Master Clinician fits into those? While taking CSD classes, I worked at an after school program with a really diverse student population, volunteered with special needs students, was involved within my sorority, and shadowed in the speech and hearing clinic on campus. I am currently taking a gap year to increase my GRE score. The first time taking it I got a 152 VR, 137 VR, and 4 AW, the second time 150 VR, 143 QR, and 3.5 AW. Before taking the GRE the second time, I solely focused on studying for the QR section. Right now during my gap year, I am gaining some awesome shadowing experience, working as a nanny, have a private tutor for the GRE, and am studying on my own. I haven't scheduled my third (and hopefully last!) time taking the GRE, but am looking at October or November. I feel like I'm putting myself in a panic and am trying to be realistic about my chances of getting into grad school. Any advice, tips, schools I should look into, or insight about my real chances of getting in would be greatly appreciated!!! I want to stay in the South if possible! Thanks in advance!
  19. Hi everyone, One of the scariest things many of us who aspire to be SLPs are facing is the cost of education. This is a very sensitive topic for many people, including myself. I was not very smart about student loans as an undergrad, and am very worried about the amount I will rack up if and when I am accepted into a graduate program. I graduated with over $100k in student loan debt and am wondering if going to graduate school and tackling a possible $200k loan (due to interest) by the end of the program is worth it. Salary was never a huge thing for me going into CSD. It was never the reason I wanted to become an SLP to begin with. I have always had a passion for working with children, especially those with disabilities. I hope to work as an SLP in a school-based setting one day. Everyone knows how passionate I am about the field. Unfortunately, I am constantly reminded of the huge loans that will be weighing down on me if and when I graduate from school. Based on research (which may vary based on setting, location, and years of experience), SLPs do not make much in their CFY and in their first few years in the field. However, loan payments will be required during that time. For reference, I graduated a year ago and am currently working at a therapeutic day school as an assistant teacher. I work very closely with the SLPs, so I am also getting a lot of hands-on experience. Financially, I have been making all of my loan payments on-time. I currently live at home, which is fine. Therefore, I am able to live comfortably and can afford to splurge every now and then while also saving money. I was planning on applying for programs this upcoming season, but I can't help wonder if now would be the right time for me to do so. I am a follower of Dave Ramsey, so my budgeting skills have definitely improved. I am also worried since many programs advise you not to work at all or to work for little with highly flexible hours, which means interest would accrue during that time. Should I wait and pay off some loans first before applying to grad school, or should I be willing to tackle these loans all at once afterwards? I am not sure if anyone else out there is in the same financial situation as me. If this resonates with you, know that you are not alone. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
  20. Hi everyone! For those who requested recommendations from employers, did you email them documents such as your transcript or a copy of your statement of purpose for them to review while writing the recommendations on your behalf? I'm applying to several programs via CSDCAS. I asked my supervisor and a special education teacher I worked with to write me letters. Do they need supplement items in order to write me a stronger recommendation? Or would it be better if I just submit the request form to them without those items? I would love feedback about this. Thank you
  21. Hi! I am retaking the GRE because I got a low AWA score and I hope to bring it up. I got good scores on Verbal and Quant so I am not focusing on those sections. I am worried that I may go down in those sections because I haven't been looking at them. Will most SLP grad schools take into account my highest scores on Verbal and Quant? Or will it hurt me if my scores drop when I retake it? Thank you!
  22. Hey everyone! I got my first interview offer and I'm soooo excited!! Please feel free to post your interview offers, updates, and acceptances when they arrive! Optional info you may want to include in your post: What schools you applied to in California Schools you've received interview offers from and when they arrived Feedback on your interview and questions they asked you Any other info you want to add
  23. 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.

    Emerson Online ?

    Has anyone been accepted and apprehensive about it not being accredited by ASHA yet ? Deciding between Emerson and NYU Speech distance learning. Any insight would be greatly appreciated !
  25. Hi, I am taking a gap year and going to teach English abroad (great speech experience). I graduated with just under a 3.7 GPA, have strong letters of rec and experience and am hoping my essay is very telling of my passion. Unfortunately, I took the gre and got a 153 (61st) on verbal and 151(42nd) on math with a 5.0 (92nd) on AW. I am applying to competitive schools in NY and Boston. I am wondering if my GRE scores will hinder my applications even being read? or how much they matter? SOS. If anyone was accepted/goes to any school in these cities please help
