  1. Hi everyone! I am currently a senior getting my bachelors in Communication Sciences and Disorders (Speech Pathology/Audiology). I am about to graduate this upcoming May but I have a small issue... My current GPA is a 2.83 and I been struggling in some of my speech classes and I realized that Speech Language Pathology is not for me anymore. However, since I am almost finish this leaves me in a little situation as I know the state I live in (New York) does not offer any SLP-A jobs whatsoever. I been stressing out on wondering what I am going to be able to do as a career after I graduate with my bachelors degree. So I been doing a lot of research and I came up with a plan but I would like other SLP students/graduates to give me some advice if this is a good route for me to do or if I should pursue something else. My plan is to graduate with my bachelors, then I was thinking about going back to school to get my Associates degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant or an Associates in Nursing to become a RN. After getting my associates in either OTA or RN I would get my masters online in a health related field that would help benefit either career I would choose such as an M.S. in Nutrition, an M.S. in Health Education or an M.S. in Public Health (or other health related master programs that are related to Nursing or OTA). So that is my plan... does anybody think this is a smart plan? Does anyone think going back to school for an Associates after receiving a Bachelors is silly? I know they have Master programs in Occupational Therapy but since I haven't done much of the prerequisites for the Master's I think that becoming an OTA will not only be faster but also financially easier on me since I have spent a lot of money on my speech bachelor's degree, plus an OTA's salary here in NY is really good and job prospects look well. I also know that there are Direct Entry MSNs for Nursing but again, I haven't done much of the prerequisites, it will cost if not more or as much as a bachelor's degree and my GPA is not very well for a direct entry masters program. So please let me know what you all think about this plan as I really been struggling to know what I am going to do as soon as I am done because I know for sure Speech Pathology is not for me anymore :-( Thanks!
  2. Hi everyone! So I recently graduated from my undergrad with a pretty poor GPA. It was actually pretty decent (3.4) until COVID and then in tanked. I really struggled with online courses and staying focused outside of campus. Long story short, I graduated with a 2.7 GPA. I know that is not acceptable for SLP school, however, I am attending a post-bacc because I majored in English Literature. So far I have a 4.0 in my program and I am loving the courses I am taking. I am work as a para-educator in my local school district and am studying for my GREs. If I maintain a 4.0 in my program I will come out with a combined GPA of 3.1. Is this enough to get me into a SLP program? My last 60 credits will be strong, I am just worried about my undergrad GPA. Let me know what you guys think!
  3. 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. 👋 😷 📚
  4. This is a question asked before at a different time and i'm wondering the same for the upcoming semester. I need to meet a physical science requirement for ASHA and need it for grad school. I'm about to enroll in a University of Phoenix online "Fundamentals of Physics" course or a chemistry one is anyone has experience with these courses? Does anyone have experience with this class (quality of teaching or difficulty?) or any other prerequisites with University of Phoenix? I've seen no reviews on Univ. of Phoenix, but since I'm just doing a single course, chemistry or physics to satisfy a requirement, is it a hard course? any advice on whether its worth paying 1300 for the 5 week course? Thanks!
  5. Hi guys! I am stoked to plan my future after being accepted into a graduate program, however I am getting a little nervous with the amount of loans I realistically have to take out. Personally, after completing my program I estimate to be in debt about 70k (including housing and other expenses not just tuition). Unfortunately I wasn't awarded any scholarships/grants. I am curious, is this typical? I hear other students say to stay away from expensive schools, where does 70k land on the scale? I was also accepted to another school that will probably cost me 35k-45k total, but it is not in an appealing location and I am not in love with the program. I'm wondering if people think it's worth sucking it up for the sake of student loan debt, or if a more expensive, desirable school is worth the cost. Thanks!!
  6. Hi all! I'm an out-of-field grad school applicant, and I recently found out that I got into both of the programs that I applied to: Appalachian State University and Vanderbilt University. I'm so excited to have been accepted into a program, but I would love some advice. I'm wondering if Vanderbilt is worth the extra cost? Appalachian State would run about $15,000/year for an out-of-state student, while Vanderbilt costs around $45,000. However, Vanderbilt holds a much higher rank and has access to some truly amazing research facilities. Living in Nashville would also allow for more accessible clinicals compared to Boone; but, Nashville is also a much more expensive city. I'm a first-generation college (and grad) student, and navigating the world of admissions is a bit intimidating for me. I'm still kind of in a state of shock and awe that I was even accepted int a program, so I would love and appreciate any advice. Thank you!
  7. Background: I have my bachelor in psychology and started becoming interested in SLP. After getting accepted into a program through university of colorado boulder to get prerequisites for SLP, I realized through researching a BUNCH of online Master SLP programs that they all require different prerequisites on top of ASHAs requirements (duh) to even apply. I don’t have physics or chemistry in my transcript but do have the others ASHA needs. I’m getting so discouraged thinking that trying this without a bachelors degree in communication science is going to be extremely difficult. I would need an Online masters program to get into because I am a mom and my husband already works grueling hours and I find being able to do most of it online would help me out a lot. I don’t even know if this is worth it anymore, I guess I’m just seeing if anyone else has been through this and has applied and got accepted with only certain prerequisites versus having exact 100% what the school needs. I am struggling. Thank you in advance!
  8. Hi! After applying to 9 schools and hearing back my acceptances (and rejections), I think I have decided to put down my deposit for Brooklyn College. It's the most affordable, their graduate students start off in the clinic their very first semester, and I've always wanted to live in NYC. If anyone has any advice/thoughts about Brooklyn College or their SLP program, please let me know! Also, I am moving out of state from PA so if anyone is also going to Brooklyn College and needs a roommate, please reply! All the advice I have ever heard when choosing the right graduate program can be summarized in one simple phrase, "Save your money." Just because a program is more money, does not mean it is better. I hope someone comes across this post and really considers it, because I was about to pay so much money for my "dream school" when truly, I could get the same education elsewhere and pay off my loans in 5 years instead of 25 years. Good luck to everyone on their decisions!
  9. I am from LI and applied to 6 schools. I have been accepted to 4 schools so far (Molloy, Adelphi, LIU, and SJU), and still waiting to hear back from 2 more (Hofstra and SBU). The top 4 schools I am interested in Molloy, Adelphi, Hofstra, and LIU because they are the closest to where I live, but I am not sure how I am going to decide on which school. Can anyone please provide information about the SLP programs at these 4 schools or any thoughts/opinions they have about the programs!
  10. Those that are currently in graduate school and/or just graduated. I would super appreciate details regarding the praxis! What should my focus be on? Any specific topics? thank you in advance
  11. Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. With CSDCAS applications opening soon, I figured I'd start a forum for applicants applying for matriculation in Fall 2022. I'd love to know where everyone is from and where y'all are applying. I'm from New Orleans and I'm applying to LSU Health, Univ. of North Texas, Auburn, Purdue, Minnesota, UFlorida, and Memphis.
  12. Hi everyone, I am convinced CSDCAS is going to ruin my life. While I am clearly aware of my troubled community college era (mental health issues/pre-nursing student), I have since turned over a new leaf and set off on a better path! However, after officially submitting my applications for SLP Graduate school, I noticed my CSDCAS GPA has been calculated in a way that makes me look like a degenerate! This is clearly not the place to come seek refuge, but I would love some input on this from fellow graduate students (past or future) who have dealt with this similar issue. At this moment CSDCAS places my overall GPA (I attended 4 schools/rough college experience) at a whopping 2.89. This is way below the 3.0 requirement for every program I applied to. Currently, I am in an undergraduate CSD program (last semester) and my grades have completely transformed (3.69 overall GPA and 3.9 CSD GPA (my last 60 credit GPA is also around a 3.87). I have reached out to a majority of my schools about this and haven't really had a consistent answer. I just think this is complete BS that my past is coming back to haunt me and may be the reason I won't achieve my dreams of becoming an SLP. It should also be noted that I have worked in the medical field for over 5+ years (started right out of high school) and have been appointed many leadership opportunities in relevant organizational avenues (NSSLHA/NBASLH/Social Justice Activism Committee's, e.c.t.) This is not a "my chances" thread, but a place to discuss the in's and out's of the admission committee. Any input would be very much appreciated!
  13. Hi! I was really considering Monmouth as a top choice until very recently seeing some bad news about it (all from 2018) I'm wondering if this has changed. Since I don't want to take a GRE and want to staying NJ, Monmouth and Kean are the only schools I was going to apply to. If you went to Monmouth recently (graduated in '19 or '20) or especially if you are currently attending I would really appreciate your thoughts on the program! Thank you!
  14. Hi! I am currently a senior studying Music with a discipline in Voice Performance and am pursuing Speech-Language Pathology as my Graduate Degree path. I have started the process of gaining experience/education (shadowing with a faculty member of the SLP department who specializes in treating vocal disorders at my University's clinic, reaching out to local ENT offices for further shadowing opportunities, attending webinars, reading published research papers) to help get myself into this track as quickly as possible. I am also preparing myself to take the necessary post-grad leveling/transition courses necessary to supplement missing coursework. That being said, it is safe to say that my efforts have not had enough time in development to make me a competitive grad school applicant for this upcoming academic year (2022-23) or even the next, realistically. One thing I did intend to do when entering college, however, was travel abroad post-undergrad (Gap Year) for internship/work experience to better help prepare me for the field I was going into for Grad School and I believe this is still a viable option with SLP in mind! I was wondering if anyone on the forum is aware of any international/abroad opportunities such as teaching/clinical jobs, unpaid/paid internships or anything of that nature that would aid a student in my position in the process of strengthening their experience to help them become more competitive come application time? Whether from your own experience with any of these opportunities or the experience of another, I would be grateful for any and all possible feedback on this topic as this is all still rather new to me but I am trying to explore as many options as I can! Side Note: Only because this info could be relevant to the topic of international work, I do have fluency in English/Spanish, have taken courses in Italian/German and am planning to begin learning Mandarin at the start of 2022. Again, thank you for any advice/assistance you can offer with this topic! :)))
  15. I am from NY and I am currently in the process of applying to speech graduate programs and was wondering if anyone on here or someone they know has gotten into slp grad programs with my type of profile or something similar: 3.4 cumulative gpa, 3.6 major gpa, 145 Verbal 145 Quant 3.5 Writing (GRE), I have experience being a special ed paraprofessional in lifeskills classrooms, experience working as a clerical worker at a speech-lang. pathology practice (also observed sessions alongside clinicians at practice), and also have experience being an activity coordinator at a summer camp working with children diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities. If someone could give me some insight I would really appreciate it!
  16. Hi, I am receiving a lot of mixed feedback about NYU Steinhardt's online master's program. I got accepted there and at another school but I would be required to move. I don't know if I should choose the program where I would get to be in the classroom (but move across the country) or pick the school where I get to stay home and do it online.. I think hearing from students who actually went through the program or even know someone who went through the program would be really helpful. Please let me know anything you know about NYU Steinhardt's online full-time master's program.
  17. Hi everyone, I am applying to Speech Pathology masters programs this fall and I was wondering if anyone knew of any programs with good funding/scholarship opportunities? Im based in SC and can only go out of state if I can get some sort of tuition reduction. Heres some of my stats: -Graduating from Clemson University with a 3.79 - Psychology Major, Biology and Youth Development Minor -25 shadowing hours in schools, 40 shadowing hours of a private practice SLP (hoping to get some more hours this fall) -Undergraduate healthcare research with a professor for 3 semesters and 1 summer -Taking the GRE in a few weeks, but my practice tests are around a score of 310 -Hoping to take pre-reqs in Spring Thanks!
  18. Hi All, I had trouble finding detailed info about individuals' experiences at SDSU's Global Campus SLP essentials courses and MA program - hopefully this thread will be helpful to others in my position! My background: Undergrad: Bachelor of Science in STEM field, Bachelor of Arts in foreign language Grad: Master of Science in STEM field 3 years working in clinical research No prior coursework in SLP California-based Planning to begin a masters program in 2023 My plan is to take the 8 SLP essentials courses offered through the Global Campus, which is fully online, over the next year or so. Students are considered non-degree seeking students, so I will likely not be eligible for federal assistance. My hope is to update this page with info on the essentials courses regarding: Financial aid/cost of attendance Why SDSU over other programs (for prereqs) Quality of courses/instructors Requesting letters of recommendation

  21. Hi all! I am currently in the process of applying to graduate school. For reference, I just graduated with my B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I am currently a Child Development Teacher with 2's. My overall GPA was a 3.78 and the last 60 credits is a 3.8. I have three great letters of rec, a great personal statement (imo), and a ton of volunteer experience ranging from individuals with Aphasia, Autism, english-language learners, etc. I was also in my programs NSSLHA and national NSSLHA. The only thing that terrifies me are my GRE scores. Granted, I have not taken it yet and am set to take it in 2 weeks. I am not confident that I will do well and it is eating me alive. With the information I provided above, how likely am I to get accepted into UCF's program? That is where I did my undergrad and is my top school for grad school. I am seeking advice and thoughts and prayers. Thank you all.

  23. Hi! I didn't see a fall 2021 applicant thread yet so I felt like making one as applications have been submitted (or are close to being submitted) for the Fall 21 round, and it definitely helps with the waiting process!!! American and International program applicants can join in! I'll start: Any Ohio (USA) applicants? Which schools did you apply to? Feel free to mention stats
  24. I applied for SLP graduate programs and was not successful with being offered admission. I was waitlisted at one school but received an email stating their cohort was full. I'm disappointed 😕 Perhaps it's a good thing. There is a lot going on in my personal life right now. I don't have stellar grades and I did awful on the GRE (I hate the idea of retaking it-I studied a lot the first time!) Some words of encouragement and positivity would be lovely ❤️
