  1. 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.

  3. hi all! I was recently given an admissions offer in march. It was my understanding that this program gives funding to most admitted people, and that offers are given in a second email. anyway, my admissions offer did not mention anything of funding besides a generic statement along the lines of: "financial decisions are a secondary step in the admission process. notification of funding will arrive in a separate communication." following this offer, an email was sent to all applicants regarding the status of admissions for April (every month, the school gave updates). the update had THIS statement regarding funding: "Below we provide a summary of the types of emails that have been sent. Your email (and the information in it) will be specific to you. 1. Admission and Funding offer (funding offer sent in a separate email). If you receive an accept with funding email prior to April 15, you have until April 15 to make your decision. All schools should be using this April 15 deadline [refer to the Council of Graduate Schools’ Resolution Regarding Graduate Scholars, Fellows, Trainees and Assistants renewed October 2014: http://www.cgsnet.org/april-15-resolution]. 2. Admission offer (funding offer pending). If you receive an accept with funding pending email, you also have until April 15 to make your decision. HOWEVER, if you know your plans earlier also, please let us know ASAP so we can continue to make offers as soon as possible." so naturally, I assumed I was pending funding, but my admissions offer did not mention "admission with funding pending" - just admission. So I emailed the coordinator and asked what my status was due to the confusion, citing that the April update email they sent had those two types of emails accepted applicants could have received and I did not receive a funding NOR a funding pending statement, they asked me to forward my offer email, and then they sent back: "Disregard that message. We still do not know if funding is available. We will know more in the next week." I guess my question is, how would you interpret this? I didn't want to push further as I know they are incredibly busy and they said they'll know more in the next week, but I took it as they meant one of two things: 1. don't know if funding is available for ME, or 2. don't know if funding is available in general thanks! I know I'm kinda overthinking, but knowing whether or not I have funding really makes this decision easier for me, and I know I can be patient and wait a week but I also like to know ALLLL my options to make an informed decision ahead of time haha
  4. Okay so I graduated with a degree in Speech Language Hearing Sciences and got into a graduate program in the Fall (YAY).. But I need to take 3 courses this Summer in order to actually be "in". I need to take an undergrad course in Speech Sound Disorders and an undergrad course in Language Disorders, and then a physics or chem course. Any idea where in the world I should take these for cheap? I've discussed with UW- Eau Claire post-bacc/leveling coursework program but they can't guarantee me a spot until like a week prior to classes starting (talk about stressful)... Anyone else been through this before? (I'll likely take the chem/physics at a local community college to save $$ but really don't have a back up plan for the other leveling courses)
  5. So, I decided to take a gap year after graduation in May and now it's time to apply for the Fall 2020 cycle. I have huge anxiety about asking my professors for LOR after being graduated for a while especially knowing the type of curriculum and schedules they keep. Any advice on how to approach my previous professors? Should I ask the same professors that I agreed during the last application cycle? Also, I've been hearing about applicants from other fields using wixsite as a supplement for their resume's and CV's; has anybody done it or heard about it for SLP? Thanks!
  6. 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!
  7. Hello everyone, Do any of you know stuttering SLPs? Or SLPs with tongue thrusts? I'm someone who stutters (mainly blocks and prolongations) about 5-10% of the time unless I'm nervous or over excited. I also have a tongue thrust that affects my /s/ sounds. Some people I've known for years comment that they haven't noticed it. The head of my local grad school told me it wouldn't be a problem as long as I am able to demonstrate correct technique in therapy. While this may be true, it would still be nice to hear about other disfluent students or practicing SLPs.
  8. Hey there!! I am fortunate enough to have been accepted to UNH for the Fall 2019 semester and was curious if anyone else on here also was Super excited to hear from everyone!
  9. Hi everyone! I have been accepted to the MA program in SLHS beginning this fall. I am unable to attend the open house, so I was hoping to get some current or former student insights regarding the program. I’m most curious to hear: -Did you feel supported throughout the program? -How many students were in your cohort? -Was the process of getting clinical placements easy? -How prepared did you/ will you feel upon graduating? -If applicable, was the process of receiving in state tuition through WRGP difficult or competitive? Also, I am from Southern California. The prospect of moving to Boulder is very appealing but I do plan to eventually move back after the program. I am hoping that my credentials from CU will allow me to work in either a school or medically-based setting. Thank you in advance! Have a great weekend!
  10. Hey guys! So I just finished applying to SLP graduate schools and was planning on getting certified as an SLPA this semester since I have my 25 observation hours completed. I was curious if anyone on here has experience working as an SLPA while also attending SLP grad school full-time? I'm nervous that it may be too much to manage. Any advice would be appreciated!
  11. Hey there! So I may have made an error when requesting letters of rec for grad school... most of the schools im applying to only have a slot for 3 recommenders to upload, but I ended up asking 4 people to write me one and all 4 have agreed to. I don't want to make a bad impression and have to eliminate one of them after I already asked. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to submit the 4th one anyways even though there is not a slot for it on the application itself? Do you think they would read it if I mailed it to their admissions office? Just curious!
  12. Hi there! I recently took my GRE's and received low scores due to test anxiety. I do have a strong resume with lots of leadership experience (both with SLP field and outside) and an above average GPA. Do you think I should spend the money to retake the test? Or not? Verbal:153 Quantitative: 141 AWA: 3.5
  13. Hi Everyone! I just want to chime in here as this application season has been very overwhelming. I am applying for the fall 2019 for grad school in speech language pathology. The road to getting here has been very long as it took me a while to get in this career path. I am currently finishing up some pre-requisites online, studying for GRE, and working on grad school applications. Is anyone else on the same boat? Also, I am 29 years old and the thought of turning 30 in grad school is sometimes a bit terrifying. However, I am determined to defy all the odds and give it a shot to get in a program. I am applying for 13 schools. Anyone else like this? Thoughts? Concerns? Thanks.
  14. Has anyone heard from MGH yet? I know from past gradcafe posts that they give you a portal, which is eventually how most people find their admissions decision. Therefore has anyone been notified by them to open/create a portal? Thank you!
