  1. Hi ๐Ÿ˜ƒ This is my first time posting on here. I have gotten a lot of useful information from here in the past so I figured I would give it a shot! I am currently finishing my Bachelor's degree in Sociology and will be graduating in December of this year. I had a lot of family issues when I was completing my Associate's degree at my community college, and this severely affected my GPA. It was far too low to apply to a Bachelor's program in Speech Pathology to start off. I decided to major in Sociology for my Bachelor's because it is a field that I am very passionate about and was easier to get into because I was part of the CAP program at my community college. I have gotten an A in every single course I have taken for my undergrad, besides 1 B, and have been able to raise my GPA tremendously. However, considering how competitive the very few programs are in California, I worry that I have slim chances in being accepted into grad school. My cummulative GPA is only a 3.1, and this will be the highest it can go, as I have calculated. My GPA at my cal-state University is a 3.9 and I am hoping that this will help me somewhat when being considered for grad schools. I'd like to stay in California and this is very important for me because I basically only have my sister for family and my 2 nephews who mean the world to me. That being said, I plan on applying to Master's programs for SLP at Cal state Fullerton, University of Redlands, Loma Linda, Cal state Long-Beach, and Cal baptist. Because my Bachelor's degree is in Sociology and not Speech Pathology, I understand that it will take me longer than others to complete my Master's degree. I want to weigh my options in getting into programs in California and also see which programs I will have a chance in getting accepted to, and also enjoy in the sense of being able to be satisfactorily prepared for the career. Do any of you have an undergrad degree in a different field and are currently in grad school for SLP or are soon applying? Any information/guidance would be greatly appreciated! As of now, Redlands University sounds appealing due to what I have heard about there faculty/program and also considering that the program would only take me about 2 1/2 years as opposed to at least 3. Loma Linda University is another school that I am very interested in because I have heard great things about the program and also their medical facility. The only issue is how expensive these 2 programs will cost. I am a waitress and live on my own so I will have to take out loans to pay for school, and I get worried thinking about being in so much debt. Sorry for the long post! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜…
  2. Hey there! I got a 4.5 on the analytical section of the GRE but both the quantitative and verbal were under the average scores for the two. Should I be worried and retake the GRE? It would be my third time. Feedback would be helpful!!! Thanks.
  3. Applying for grad school has always been in the back of my mind, BUT with the time coming up to apply, I don't know if I should take a break... The thing is, my grades aren't so bad but not the strongest. I know experience also plays a huge role with acceptance but since I've been concentrating on school, I haven't had much job opportunities relating with child care or with speech. I do not have much experience, so applying and believing in myself has been pretty difficult. I am just terrified that this won't be enough to be accepted to a school. Would taking a year off to work and build my experience be a good or bad idea? I would appreciate any advice or stories anyone has to share!! help a stressful girl ouuuut ๐Ÿ˜“
  4. I am a senior currently applying to Masters programs for Speech-Language Pathology. I am having a hard time narrowing down my list of graduate schools. I am from Illinois, and would like to stay local. However, I have heard a lot that the midwest is a very competitive area for Masters programs. Because of this, I am applying to mostly midwest schools but also some random other locations. I think I am a competitive applicant with lots of relevant work/research/volunteering experiences, 157V, 161Q, 4.5W for the GRE, great letters of rec, good resume/personal statement. I think the worst thing I'm offering is my GPA of 3.5 since it's pretty average (I am hoping everything else will help balance me into being a good candidate). How do I narrow down from 11-12 schools to 7 or 8? I do not want to spend all the time and money to apply to so many programs.
  5. 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!
  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. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. 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!

    Do I have a chance?

    I am going to be *that* person and seek opinions about whether my scores are good enough for graduate school admission. I am applying to 13 schools (yes, I know that's a lot. But I am anxious because of my low GPA compared to the average accepted GPA). uGPA: 3.43/4.00 CSD GPA: 3.75/4.00 Last-60 GPA: 3.80/4.00 GRE: 157 V, 154 Q, 4.5 AW I am a CS&D major with an Education minor. I have been involved in 2 research labs during undergrad; one for three semesters studying bilingual language acquisition and language development and the other studing Parkinson's Disease using rat models. I currently serve on the executive board of NSSLHA as the Secretary. I was a Camp Counselor at an overnight summer camp for kiddos on the autism spectrum. I am working as a conversation volunteer in our schools speech and language clinic. I also am enrolled in a service-learning course as a mentor for children in our public school district who experience homelessness. Finally, I have been an RA for our dorms for the past 2 years. I think I have a diverse amount of leadership and research experiences which could help that lower GPA. (Also, being a male in the field, many of my colleagues have told me I shouldn't worry about not getting in. Personally, I don't buy that because programs are trying to get the best applicants no matter what, right?) I know Letters of recommendation are important as well and two of my three professors are revered as "innovative" in their respected research fields so hopefully their opinions may help. I also know them pretty well, so it's not like I asked strangers for the sake of them just looking good to schools. My letter of intent has been looked over by many sets of eyes and will continue to be looked over. I've been told it sounds good by colleagues who have been through the application process. (I only mention these things because I know ad comm's look at the applicant holistically) As you can tell by my sheer number of schools, I am pretty anxious about getting in. CS&D has become my passion since finding the major and it would be a blow if I couldn't get in. Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from people going through their applications too!
  9. Hey everyone! Did anyone else attend the webinar for USAHS Monday evening? What were your thoughts, feelings about the program after attending it?
  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!!!
  11. I'm confused on what to do next within my career. I hold my Bachelors in Speech Pathology and have been a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant since Aug 2013. I'm currently in school for my M.Ed in Special Education and will be done next year. The reason why I went back for a Masters in Special Education was because Autism and Behavior are very intriguing to me. The Behavior Analysts Certification Board website says that one must hold a Masters in Education, Psychology, or Behavior Analysis in order to sit for certification as a Behavior Analyst. Therefore, I figured instead of going back for a Masters in Behavior Analysis, I would go back for a Masters in Special Education since I like working in the Special Needs field and then go back for certification in Behavior Analysis; plus I didn't want to put all of my eggs in one basket. I want to be able to go into different paths in the future if I want too. I also decided to pursue a Masters in Special Education to help make up for my not so good GPA from undergrad in Speech Pathology which was embarrassingly a 2.7 when I graduated (please don't judge me). However, even though my GPA in grad school right now for isn't the best (3.32) I think it's enough to show a grad committee that I am capable of successfully completing graduate course work. I don't really want to be a teacher but I like learning about what they do; it is soooo interesting. My dilemma right now is I kind of want to go back and get my Masters in Speech Pathology after I graduate with my Masters in Special Education, then I would like to go back to get my Certification as a Behavior Analyst; Behavior Analysis paired with Speech Pathology would be beneficial when working with the pediatric and school age population. This a goal I really want to achieve. However, I feel self conscious at times because I have a few dysfluencies when speaking and I feel that doesn't look good for someone whose title is a Speech Therapist; but what most don't know is Speech Pathology has to do with a whole lot more than Speech . I absolutely love my job and love what I do, but I just feel self conscious at times which makes me feel I should choose another career path. That is where Nursing comes in, because I love helping people and the field seems fairly interesting. I've also thought about Psychology and Social Work as well because they seem interesting too. I've already started the application process for a Masters in Speech Pathology at 3 schools, however, I just feel I shouldn't be having second thoughts about it. I can honestly say the main reason I feel I shouldn't do it is because I feel self conscious about my Speech at times. Any insight you guys? Thanks for reading this long essay
  12. Hi, Name's Bocephus, I hope to become an SLP. I'm an undergraduate senior not majoring in something SLP related. I am volunteering at a speech lab, but the lab has me doing office tasks rather than actual research. I am worried about leaving the lab because I do not want to hurt my chances for grad school. Is it worth it to stay even if I'm not doing any actual research? How much do schools care about research experience? Just some context, I have 3 semesters worth of previous research experience, two semesters with a social psychology lab and one semester at an ABA lab. Once I graduate I plan to take a year to go back to the ABA lab and complete whatever prereques I need for grad school. I would have more xp, but I realized late in my undergrad that I wanted to pursue speech.

    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!
  14. Hi! So I'm incredibly disappointed, upset, and stressed right now. I applied to 6 schools, and I was very confident that at least one was going to accept me with an assistantship (because the director had implied so). I have been rejected from all 6.. and I'm not sure what's next. My cumulative GPA is the sole reason (I've been told by directors) of being rejected; it's a 3.1. My last 60 hours and CSD GPA are both a 3.7, my minor GPA (psychology) is a 3.9, and my science GPA is a 3.5. My low cumulative is due to poor grades in math, and I have found out I likely have dyscalculia. During undergrad, I've been really sick, including having surgery. I was also sexually assaulted, which affected some of my prior grades. I explained all of this in my LOI and had a friend on an admissions panel read over it, who affirmed it was well-written and explained the situation well. I also included in the LOI that I'm passionate about CSD and changed to the major because my younger brother is autistic and nonverbal. I had professors I know well write my LORs. GRE scores are 167V, 149Q, and 4AW. The problem is my GPA, but it can't be raised much because I have 160 credit hours, so even straight A's don't make much of a difference. I thought about getting a different master's degree, but I can't seem to find many relevant degrees with deadlines that haven't yet passed. I found out through hands-on observations that M.Ed in SpEd isn't a good option for me because if I don't get in next year, I would not be happy as a SpEd teacher. I've considered dyslexia, psychology, ABA, and child development degrees. I have a background in ABA, but the program deadlines have passed. I have the ABA instructional hours required to be an RBT... but I don't think I like it enough for a career, anyway. Child Life would potentially be a good fit for me, but those jobs appear to be difficult to come by. Ideally, I would be in grad school and none of this would matter. I also looked into spring programs. The following schools offer spring admission: Valdosta State, UT Dallas, UT San Antonio, South Dakota, Central MO, Central Florida, TN State, TAMU Kingsville, Baylor, and Alabama A&M. Any insight here? If applying to spring programs, should I spend the fall semester finishing my second bachelor's degree in psychology (including retaking stats for my CCC) or should I apply to a master's program and potentially leave for an SLP program after a semester? What are your suggestions for 1) reapplying 2) alternate master's programs 3) alternate career paths Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  15. Hi! I was just wondering if anyone had any information on the college of Saint Roseโ€™ speech pathology program, particularly the spring 2019 semester. Cost, how competitive is it, just any advice in general would be appreciated!
  16. 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
  17. Hello I didn't apply for 2018 but I have a quick question, if someone can help me out it would be extremely appreciated: I'm an international student and I'm considering to apply for the slp programs at mcmaster, western and dalhousie... I'm gonna be a senior and am studying in the states for applied developmental psychology. I wonder how hard it would be for a non-csd and non-canadian-educated undergrad to get into a slp program in Canada. (My brother's at waterloo so I figured it would be nice if we are in the same country) I'm looking at a sub-GPA of 3.94 if nothing bad happens... Didn't have a bunch of csd-related volunteering experience, but interned at a high school in china, taught ESL, worked at my university's pre-school each for a summer (4mo. each). Also will be starting my part-time internship as a part of my program at the university's Office of Child Development (providing developmental healthcare support and applying RTI methods and interventions for pre-k kids). Volunteered at a local crisis nursery for a semester, and probably would start volunteering at the local Children's Institute and shadowing a certified speech therapists once my app goes through. What are my chances? Also, I'm thinking of taking a year or two off to work first and relieve some financial burdens from my family. Would it hurt my chances if I apply two years later? Pls give my some advice I have no one to turn to!
  18. Hi guys! This is the first time Im using a forum but I am eager to get your input. I am interested in applying to the COMD Masters program at UTD for Spring/Summer 2019. I've always been so nervous to apply to the program, obviously scared of receiving a rejection. I graduated with my BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from UTD in 2013. My GPA was 3.56. I also graduated with a MAT (Masters in Arts of Teaching) Science Ed from UTD in 2016. My GPA was 3.97. I completed my thesis in grad school on the effects of an inclusive classroom on the academic achievement for students with and without learning disabilities. I am currently studying to take the GRE as I haven't taken it yet since the masters program I was in didn't require it. I had two kids in grad school so I have not been able to hold a full time job. But I have been an AVID tutor for PISD, a sub for PISD, and taught English online to kids living in China. I really more than anything want to get into UTD's COMD program but have been so scared to apply because I know of so many people getting rejected. I am also interested in TWU's distance learning option since its so far from home. Anyone have any detail info about their program? What are your opinions of me getting in with my stats? Anyone else got in at UTD with already having a masters in a different field?
  19. I am considering on applying to speech pathology programs in Canada and I was wondering if there is a good job outlook for speech pathology in Canada? I have read and spoken to some people that have said there is a lack of funding for these jobs. Would it be difficult for me to find a job if I were to pursue this field?

    Low GPA--help?

    Hi! I am a student at UNC Chapel Hill and only started taking SLP pre-reqs my junior year, and in the years before this I was a nursing/PA student with a low GPA. My GPA in pre-reqs is a 3.7/3.8, and my overall GPA is a 3.1. My GRE scores are alright... 159 V, 153 Q, 5.5 W. I have lots of experience working with my desired community (children) and am looking to participate in research this coming semester (I will be a senior in Fall 2018.) I am also going abroad this summer to Belize and volunteering at a clinic there. I guess what I'm wondering is.. do I have a chance anywhere? With that low of a GPA, but good LOR, experience, and what not, can I still get into my desired programs? Programs I know I'll be applying to are UNC, UNCG, ECU, App State, U of Tenn, U of Memphis, FSU, U of Florida. Programs I may be applying to are UCF, Jacksonville, Radford, NC Central, Western, GWU, etc. Thanks for any help, I am very worried lol
  21. I am considering a program that is an Applicant for Candidacy by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. Does anyone know how long it takes a program to get Candidacy?
  22. I'm ending my junior year, and I'm estimating that my GPA is about to go from a 3.7 to a 3.6. This is due to having some mental health issues (including a week in the hospital), and I'm afraid that I won't be as competitive when I start applying in the fall. I haven't taken the GRE yet, but I plan to take it this summer. I also plan to shadow in some hospitals since my interest is in swallowing. I'm also starting a research project this summer studying why CFY students aren't accepted into acute care positions, and I'm considering doing a PhD. I will at least do a master's thesis. So far, I have these schools on my list: Auburn University (where I currently attend) University of South Alabama University of Memphis University of Central Florida University of Tennessee Florida State University of Florida. Is that a good number? I'm hoping that my interest in research will help me to stand out, and I know some of these schools have combined MS/PhD programs. I'm just worried that my GPA puts me at a disadvantage, even if I bring it up some in the fall. Thoughts?
  23. I was accepted into UNT, but I donโ€™t know a lot about their program! Who else has been accepted?:) Any info on the rigor of the program, faculty, atmosphere, etc?
  24. 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.
  25. Hi everyone! Iโ€™ve been accepted to CUNY Brooklyn and CUNY Lehman for the fall semester. Iโ€™m having a hard time deciding and finding information about how students feel about the program, pros and cons, etc. If anyone has any information please let me know!
