  1. I received an email from Arizona State University admitting me into the 2019 Speech Pathology program! I was wondering about scholarships and the PEP program. Did anyone receive any information on that as of yet? Will they be sending that information in the official letter? Any info would be appreciated! Audrey
  2. People who have been accepted to emerson distance. How long did it take to hear back? Also share your stats! 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 ?
  4. 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
  5. Hi! I was accepted to UNH the beginning of February. In the acceptance letter they explain how they will be making decisions for assistantships within the month. So I'm assuming that could include the month of March too since they accepted people throughout the month of February. Anyways, I've been anxiously awaiting to hear back since I think that would be an amazing opportunity. Obviously, they only have so many spots so I was thinking to make this forum to see if people have been offered such a position/if they accepted it. I'm hoping I have a shot! Thanks! Good luck to everyone applying to grad schools!!
  6. I wanted to start this post so we can track the speech pathology programs in the south. There are so many threads regarding the northern schools, it gets tiring sorting through all of the different posts. This thread is for southern school programs ONLY (ex. schools states like Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and the Carolinas).
  7. Hello! I am in the process of making my graduate school decision and cost is a huge factor for me. Has anyone received any news of funding from UNCG?
  8. I have both my bachelor's and master's in speech & hearing science (also known as communication sciences and disorders, or speech-language pathology). I plan on working for this field for a little while, but it is not sustainable for me. I realized I like this field in an academic sense but nothing more. I recently discovered public health and have been reading up on it a lot, and it sounds perfect! Especially epidemiology, biostatistics, and urban design. I regret not doing something that was more closely related to math and science, although my programs did require a lot of neuroscience and anatomy courses. Do you think it would reflect poorly on my application to already have an MA in an unrelated field? GRE: V 161, Q 159, W 4.5 (that's an old score - I would have to retake it). GPA 3.98 in undergrad and grad.
  9. I just found out I have been offered a summer internship position at a private practice. The dress code is business casual. I’m from the south where the summers are hot and humid. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of what I should wear. Also, do you consider jeans to be business casual (assuming they’re dark wash with no holes)?
  10. This is my first year applying for SLP grad programs. I have heard back from one school (rejected) and haven’t heard back from anyone else. I keep seeing in the thread of decisions for this year that people are getting accepted to programs I applied to. But I haven’t heard anything from the rest of my programs. So I’m assuming I’m waitlisted/rejected. I’m starting to lose hope. I applied to 5 programs and spent all my money during the process (GRE, transcripts,fees). I’m worried I’ll either get waitlisted and not get a spot or just get rejected everywhere. How do you handle seeing others get accepted to your programs when you haven’t heard anything. Just feeling discouraged and don’t want to disappoint anyone close to me if I don’t get into a program.
  11. This doesn't technically fall under the 'jobs' category but it's that was the most relevant category. I am wondering how to go about setting up my own externship for my second year in the SLP master's program. I would prefer not to do my externship in the city where my school is. All of my classes for the second year will be online and I would love to not have to be in this town for my externship. I have heard rumors from several people that it's possible to make your own externship. Operating under the theory that my program director will approve of this idea, how do I find places that will take me on as an extern? I've already emailed ASHA about this. They and the ASHA Career Center were of absolutely no help. Any input will be immensely helpful.
  12. I just don't know anymore guys. I have applied for the last 3 years and continue to be rejected.. IT SUCKS. I have a low GPA (2.86) took 4 post bacc classes did well, post bacc gpa is 3.6. I did ok on my GRES but am retaking to get in the 50th percentile. I have worked as an SLP-A for 2 years.. WHAT DO I DO? HOW CAN I GET IN? can anyone recommend schools that do not only look at numbers/ have a GPA/GRE cutoff?! please anything helps. I honestly don't know what else I can do! I basically missed my last year during undergrad due to sickness but there is nothing I can do I AM SO STRESSED OUT PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME! advice would be awesome
  13. HIII everyone! So a bit of me.... I graduated a year ago and got rejected from 8 schools, so I decided to get my SLP-A license and I've been working for a year in Texas. I have a overall GPA of 3.1, CSD 3.2, upper CSD 3.46, last 60 3.4 and upper division gen is 3.5. MY gre scores are 144V and 145Q and I'm retaking it in a month, cause I know they are terrible!! I have a list of schools that I may potentially fit in their ranges and I need advise! or even suggestions ASU UNM-albq Portland state Nova Southestern San fran state TWU UTEP Idaho state wash state witchita state Case western Cal State Un - chico Cal State Un- east bay
  14. Hi All! I'm a senior about to graduate in my undergrad in Exercise Science however I want to go into SLP! I've been thinking about it for quite some time but I'm getting anxious as graduation comes because I know I am going to have to start to figure out how exactly i'm going to go about this - and if it's even realistic! Was anyone in this position.. where their undergrad was not in communication disorders but they still wanted to do SLP? I was told I should get a second BS, which would be such a pain, but I was also told I should just take the pre reqs and then apply .... but how would I get in? I would be up against communication disorder students! I work as a therapy aide right now at a rehabilitation hospital so I do help the SLP's and work with their patients to an extent. That's it for experience though. Should I do an SLPA program and work for a bit to broaden my chances to get into grad school??? Help!
  15. Hey everyone! Same as last year's thread: now that the interview season is upon us, lets post the following: when you got the invite to the interview where one could find the invite, portal, etc any tips from previous interviews questions that were asked on the interview that can help us good luck to everyone!!
  16. I am not a very good student over all, GRE scores were in the mid 140's and got a 4 in writing. My cumulative GPA is 3.48 but in my speech courses it's only a 3.0. I am desperately trying to find Speech Pathology masters programs that are not ridiculous to get into. I'm asking about NYU because I spoke to an advisor there who was VERY optimistic about my getting in. Compared to everyone else I've spoken to, this was a major relief and is even making me consider paying the stunning $76,000 for the degree!! Anyways, this advisor told me that NYU does not have a cap on how many students they accept into the online program, and do not even list their GPA and GRE requirements online because they want to encourage all students to apply even if they do not think they have very good scores. I would like to hear from someone who has gotten into the program or knows any information about it whether or not this is true. I am strongly considering the online option, but would also like to know whether the in person MS program is more difficult/competitive?
  17. Hey guys! I see lots of people have landed an interview at Emerson! just curious who got an interview for the regular program and who got an interview for the low residency program?! also, anyone know what states hire SLP-A's?
  18. I recently applied to 10 schools for my masters in Speech Language Pathology. My GPA is a 3.78 and my CSD major GPA is a 3.8. I have solid recommendations, research and work experiences, great extracurriculars BUT my GRE score is awful. I took it twice and I even took a Kaplan course. V- 149 (39th percentile) Q-150 (39th percentile) AW- 4.5 (87th percentile) Are grad schools going to throw out my application because of my low GRE? I'm starting to worry, I hear most programs don't even bother to look at your application if you have under a 300 GRE.
  19. Hello- Any advice is appreciated first off. So i took the GRE's and it went pretty subpar Quant: 147 Qual: 152 and AWA:4.5 so now im trying to figure out how to remain a strong applicant. I was thinking of mentioning in a quick sentence or two in my SOP about my Quant score in particular being mediocre, something along the lines of asking them to look at classes such as Research Methods, Intro to Audiology, and Phonetics and Acoustics all which include math in their courses and ones i received A's in. How these classes more accurately represent the set of math skills required to be a successful SLP and that i performed proficiently in these classes. Is it worth mentioning? should i not draw attention to it? just trying to figure out how to sell myself. thanks!
  20. Hey guys, I was wondering if I could get some advice! I'm a resident of California, USA and I've just graduated with a B.A. in Psychology. Although I truly enjoy psychology as a subject, I know I don't necessarily want to become a "psychologist"per se. A professor of mine told me about Speech Therapy/ Speech Language Pathology before graduation, and the topic really intrigued me. After some research, I think I can see myself working in a school setting with young kids and/or teenagers! The problem is; however, in CA there are only two schools that have an SLP program (within my means of travel), and both require a degree in Communicative Disorders. There is a post-bacc program available that would need 2 years of completion before I can apply to the 3-5 year M.A. in Communicative Disorders program that leads into becoming an SLP. I joined this forum site basically to gauge anyone's opinion or advice--do you think it's worth it to endure the post-bacc; financially and time-wise? Should I maybe try for SLPA instead? Or do you know of any other fields that can combine therapy/education/health science the way speech therapy does without having to work in a hospital setting?
  21. I'm about to finish my bachelors in speech and hearing science (concentration in slp) at the University of Illinois. I decided to take a gap year instead of going straight to grad school for slp and wanted to get licensed to be an SLPA so i could work as one during my gap year. I just read somewhere that in Illinois you can only get certified as an SLPA if you complete an associates degree program with the certification. That makes no sense to me. If I have a bachelor's degree, I feel like I should be able to obtain certification and work as an assistant. Does anyone have any knowledge on this situation? Help me!
  22. I wanted to start this post so we can track the speech pathology programs in the south. There are so many threads regarding the northern schools, it gets tiring sorting through all of the different posts.
