  1. Hello, everyone!!! I am currently looking into my options for grad school. I would love to go back to school for SLP. My undergrad GPA is embarrassingly low (2.67..yeaaaah ouch.) but I have taken some courses since and I have almost a 3.5 from those courses. I am a US citizen but currently working in Japan. Before coming to Japan to teach English, I worked at an elementary school in the lifeskills classroom for 2 years. Along with that, I have several years experience working in nursing homes and in the hospital as a CNA. I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to do next. I will be in Japan for another year and a half but after that I either want to go to school in the US or in Australia. If I plan on going to school in the US I will apply to USU for their 2nd degree program so that I can raise my god-awful undergrad GPA. I would also need to take the GRE (which I have an irrational fear of!) My other option that I am considering is applying to a few Australian SLP programs. They do not require all of the pre-reqs or the GRE. My fear is that if I wait and apply to them next year and don't get accepted, I would have wasted time by not starting my 2nd bachelors degree program. Has anyone studied at the Australian schools for SLP? Does anyone have any advice?
  2. I'm trying to finish up my application for Columbia's CSD program and do not know how to format my optional essay. I know I need to discuss my GRE scores (below par) but focus on how my GPA is great and I have a lot of volunteer/work/professional experiences. Should this be a blunt statement? Or should it be put in a nicer way like every other personal statement? Applying to: Columbia, UVA, UNC, Vanderbilt, Pitt, BU, MGH, Kean, NYU
  3. Hey everyone, I hope everyone isn't as stressed as I am this application cycle. Just wanna know if someone could recommend me programs.. a little about myself, living in CA, Ive been an SLP-A for 2 years, undergrad was 2.9.. yea I know, post back is 3.64, GRE is Q150 V152 AW 3.. I have great LOR's and SOP's.. can anyone help guide me on schools that would be up my ally, feel free to DM me or reply to this post! yes I HAVE used ASHA defined but I am looking for personal experiences. Im still unsure if I trust defined lol. Thanks!
  4. So as I am in the midst of getting my applications for graduate school (for speech pathology) figured out, I realized that I have no idea what I should have professors highlight in my letters of recommendation (in terms of when they ask you - what would you like highlighted to set you apart?) I was wondering, should you have every professor writing you letters (i.e. - 3) try to highlight something different thats on your resume/that you think it important about you, or should you have them all focus on the same thing? For example, I have experience in working with stroke patients through a volunteer program. Should I only have the professor I work with in this program write about this in my letter of rec, or should I have all three touch on it? Thank you!!!!!!! And best of luck to everyone applying. Almost done with it!
  5. GRE Scores

    I recently took the GRE for the first time and received a 152 Verbal and 151 Quant. I have not received my writing score yet, but I am debating whether I should plan on retaking the test. Some of the schools I am applying to say their average scores are around a 155 Verbal and 152 Quant. However, my GPA is well above average at a 3.96. I also have various volunteer experience, 60 hours of shadowing, and am completing research with a professor. Should I plan on retaking the GRE for three points?
  6. Hi! I am someone who is reapplying to schools after not getting in the first time. Its been 2 years since I last applied. I'm wondering if I should expect to get in this time with my scores. (they have improved quite a bit in verbal) I want to start grad school more than anything right now but I really think that my scores on the GRE/ my GPA will hold me back. Tell me what you think ! GRE: (V: 152 - 56th percentile) (Q- 149) (W: 3.0) GPA: 3.67 Thanks for your help! Dani
  7. I’m a bilingual SLPA applying to Florida schools, so I focused on the field’s need for bilingual and bicultural therapists as the theme of my application. My question is: are second languages significant in applications for slp grad programs in general, or only for programs that specialize in bilingual and multicultural therapy?
  8. Hi everyone! I am wondering what I should purchase before I attend graduate school in the fall. Attire: I live in Texas and it does get extremely hot here most of the year. Currently I work at a very laid back clinic- most of the therapists wear jeans/sandals. I am wondering if I should invest in a couple pairs of nice slacks and purchase more business casual clothes.. or maybe wait it out and see if my school has a specific dress code (I haven't heard much from my program yet). School supplies: I have a MacBook Pro and I was thinking about getting binders and spirals for note taking. Do most students bring computers or take notes by hand? I also was thinking about getting a cross body bag instead of a backpack. Any other must have supplies that I would need as an slp grad student? 😊 Therapy Materials: I have been an slpa for 2+ years and I have so many games and materials that I have made and purchased. Would it be worthwhile to take some of these things with me, or wait and see what my clinic has to offer? Any help/input would be awesome. I am moving 8 hours away so I want to be prepared and make sure I don't leave anything behind:)
  9. slp grad school

    I have a few questions for those currently in grad school, specifically those in slp grad school. 1) Do you have time for a job? If so, is it usually a part time job on the weekend? 2) any job recommendations? 3) Is there time to participate in college events...football games...on -campus events? 4) What is grad school like? 5) Did you find a job easily after gradschool? 6) Which work area do you recommend? Hospital, clinic, schools, etc? 7) How should I pick an area of interest...i like a little bit of everything, as of now? I know every university is different, but i just want rough overview of what to expect
  10. Anyone have any wisdom on STARTING personal statements? I have no idea where to begin. Of course, I've done some research and viewed samples but I just don't know where to start. Help?
  11. U-Mass Amherst pros: LOVE the program and faculty, 2 hours away from home, highly ranked and regarded program and reputation, on campus clinic, possible grant opportunity in an area of interest cons: 53k Grand Valley State pros: 39k, can live anywhere last semester for externship, family-like atmosphere cons: big move (16 hours from family), newer program: candidate for accreditation, stress of an accelerated program (15 months) ,no on-campus clinic I know I would like to end up in the northeast after I graduate. One school is my dream school, the other is very affordable and I know I would succeed there. My only worries is that the cheaper program is newer. Was accepted to U-Mass first and accepted a seat in the program, just found out that I got into the cheaper program today. Difficult to prioritize location vs. cost vs. quality of program. Size of program at Amherst is 25 students vs. 35 students at GVSU. Any advice?

  13. Hi! I was wondering if there was any way to take post-bacc classes even though I already have a Bachelor's in CSD. I am trying to repeat some classes that I received lower grades in and I was wondering if there is any way in doing so even though I have already graduated. Has anyone had an experience with this?
  14. HI, I am a post-bacc student slowly but surely preparing to begin applications to schools in the fall. I am looking for insight on how you narrowed down your list of schools to apply, what you compared as far as admissions criteria etc. Basically, I want to be as prepared as possible and I am wondering what my first steps should be in preparing for the application process? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  15. I am trying to decide between William Paterson University and Stockton University for graduate school. Does anyone know about these programs?
  16. Hello friends so I received this from one of the school I applied to...do you guys think it's a good sign?
  17. I've been accepted to both programs for their communication disorders programs. Anyone have insight on either of these programs. Price is a concern of course, but I'd love to hear about classes, professors, etc. Thanks for the help!
  18. Hello all! Is anyone planning to attend Harding University in the Fall of 2017 for their MA in Speech-Language Pathology program? I officially sent in my deposit a couple weeks ago and just wanted to see if anyone else was out there Hope you are all having an excellent year!!
  19. Hi! I have recently been accepted to the speech language pathology masters program at the University of Utah. I am very interested in attending, however I want to know more about the environment at the school. Are most students in the masters program from in state? I will be coming from Kentucky, so it'll be a big change. What do people do for fun? What's life like in Salt Lake? I want to make sure I'll fit in. Is anyone in this specific cohort? I'd love to chat!
  20. SUNY Fredonia 2017

    Just wondering if there is anyone else on here going to Fredonia September 2017! I am having a hard time finding anyone! I would really like a roomie!
  21. I am having a difficult time choosing between Ohio State and Kent State. From what I can tell just from the websites, Ohio State's program lets you develop a focus whereas Kent State's program is more general (I may be incorrect about this). If anyone has any thoughts on the programs or just the schools themselves, I would love to hear! Also, anyone who has accepted their admission to one of these schools, I'd like to hear what factors influenced you to make that decision. Thank you!
  22. I have been put on three waiting lists for graduate school. And I still haven't heard back from one program yet. Is there anything I can do to help increase my odds? Also, if I don't hear back by April 15th then does that mean I didn't get a spot? I'm feeling really uneasy, can someone please help me out?
  23. I'm trying to decide between these two schools for a masters in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. I visited Teachers College and was very impressed by their overall program curriculum, their strong commitment to multiculturalism/bilingualism, and how smoothly they integrate the necessary prerequisites into their grad program (I'm an out-of-field applicant). However, it seems that their facilities were slightly outdated, and their research focus may not be as strong or as broad as NYU's? I wasn't able to attend NYU's admitted students day, so I haven't gotten to speak with any current grad students or faculty members, tour their facilities, or get a sense of the overall "vibe" of the program. I'm also concerned that NYU might not be the best choice for an out-of-field applicant such as myself... this is the first year they're integrating the prerequisites into their grad program, and all of those prereqs will be offered as online courses instead of in-person. Anybody else in a similar situation? Or has anybody visited both schools... in your opinion, what were the pros/cons of each? Thanks in advance!
  24. Does anyone have any input on what they like/dislike about the programs or just the schools in general?
  25. I am really struggling to decide on a school and the deadline is approaching fast! Could anyone weigh in on any of my top three schools? My biggest concerns are price, location, nontraditional student support (I'm currently a special education teacher), and availability of AAC courses. Could anyone add any input to my pro/con list on these concerns and other other pros or cons that may have made you choose that school. Thank you so so much! Temple pros: wouldn't have to move (save $$ and stay near bf/family), quality program Temple cons: 6 semester program, most expensive, known to be pretty difficult (which scares me a bit as a nontraditional student) WVU pros: cheapest (plus they gave me a sizable scholarship), 5 semester program, quality program WVU cons: move 5 hours away, campus size is a bit daunting, pay for living Old Dominion pros: favorite SLH clinic facility (attached preschools), more nontradiaional students there, quality program Old Dominion cons: 6 semester program, move 5 hours away, pay for living
