  1. Is there anyone who has gotten into CSULB's Masters program? I have a few questions
  2. Hi everyone! Fingers crossed that I get some responses on this one !!!!!! I am in crunch time to make my decision I have about a week and a half......😅 Specifically looking for input on CUNY Brooklyn.. I don't know anyone who went to Brooklyn and would really really love any information that anyone could provide, even hearsay! I know Brooklyn is pretty exclusive, and I know this can often be contingent upon price, but given the requirements for admission I can only assume the program is pretty good as well! For me, the price difference between LIU and Brooklyn would be nearly negligible, as I would be living at home if I went to LIU, and would have to rent a place in Brooklyn. So I am really focused on hearing about the program I went to Undergrad at LIU and have had a truly AMAZING, supportive and individualized experience. The staff truly cares and I have formed amazing bonds with almost every professor in the Speech department. And that is absolutely not something to take for granted. But then again, given how exclusive the program at Brooklyn is, I don't want to pass up on an amazing opportunity. I just need to hear a bit about Brooklyn and others' experiences there, whatever they may be. Again, I really hope I get at least one reply on this I am desperate for some input! Thank you for your time for those of you who even read this! Looking forward to ( / hoping to!) hear from any of you soon! Thanks so much! Best, Nikki
  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. Hi! I found out on Friday 3/12 I was admitted to NC Central's graduate program for an MS in communication disorders. I was hoping to connect with others who have been admitted and plan to attend Fall 2021. Have a great week!
  5. Hi! I applied to 10 schools and one that is mainly a safety, but I don't think I want to attend. I got an interview there, but I do not think I want to take it. Are we able to decline interviews? Has anyone ever done this?
  6. I emailed the admissions office at U of Washington and they said that they are changing their curriculum to offer EdSLP, CoreSLP, and MedSLP. I want to apply to their CoreSLP program, but they are making it a research-focused program. I asked if I can apply to the CoreSLP program this year (for the Fall 2021 cycle), but they said they will only open apps for CoreSLP starting Fall 2022 cycle, and instead encouraged me to apply to EdSLP (more school-based) and MedSLP programs. Does anyone know about this change? If I don't want to specialize in Educational or Medical SLP, should I not apply at all since they are not offering...? (I'm super interested in working in clinical faculties, and want to enter Fall 2021)
  7. I want to become a speech pathologist, I’m starting my sophomore year in high school and I’m not sure what classes I should take I’m thinking intro to healthcare but I’m not sure.
  8. Hi friends! I was originally expressing interest to apply to ENMU's Spring 2021 Cohort for Speech Pathology, but when I received the email that they were still accepting applicants for Fall, I sent my application and was provisionally accepted! I am about to start a few prerequisites on Monday, but I am excited to get going. I graduated undergrad three years ago, so I am excited to get back into the swing of things. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the classes, how vigorous they are, etc. Also, I am looking for others in my cohort! I searched for a FB page but couldn't find one.. Excited to get to know people and potentially find roommates for Spring semester! I feel very late to the game!
  9. Hi I’m planning on applying for the Post-Bacc for Speech Pathology program. I’m only looking into schools near my home (CSUF, CSUN, Biola, CBU, etc) I know that you have to send in your transcripts but do you have to send it in like 6 weeks before the deadline? I have a problem because I’m a Junior in undergrad right now and after spring quarter, I would have a 2.98ish. But for Fall, I’m retaking the classes that I failed during Freshman year (due to personal reasons) and this is going to boost my gpa ALOT. But if I am expected to send in my transcripts at least 6 weeks before, then I would have to send in the 2.98 one which is not meeting the standards because you have to be a 3.0 standing... My first choice is CSUF and their new deadline is January 15. But if I have to send my transcripts 6 weeks before, I wouldn’t be able to send my fall quarter grades that end in December... Do I really have to send it 6 weeks before? Or can I just send my transcript as soon as my fall quarter is over? And do Post-Baccs only look at the gpa at the time of application? Or would they also look at the end gpa too? (For me, I mean if I were to send in my transcripts 6 weeks early would they also look at the fall quarter grades that raised my gpa above the 3. Limit?) I’m suddenly so stressed because I had this all worked out and now I’m so stressed because my plans are all over the place
  10. I'm interested in applying for the Speech Pathology Post Bacc at Cal State Fullerton. My undergrad GPA won't be so high at the time of application, which I'm super worried about because I know CSUF is competitive. I really want to get into the post bacc at CSUF. Does the CSUF Post-Bacc program only look at your gpa at the time of application? Or will they also look at your gpa overall? At the time of application, I'm only going to have a 3.155 but my graduation I would have a 3.4. Can anyone give me some information?
  11. I want to apply for the Post Bacc for Speech Pathology at CSUF and one of the requirements is a cbest passing score. all the testing centers are closed this whole year and probably next year... Does anyone know if they will not making it a requirement this year? I emailed the Dr.Tsao and she was so vague and just told me to recheck the website in September to see if they can make accomodations but I’m just sitting here sweating because that’s such a late time... Does anyone know if they would?
  12. I have to take the CBEST because it is a requirement for me to apply for the post bacc for SLP at CSUF... English is not my first language although I did live in America for a long time and I was in ESL until 6th grade... I have to get a 43 on the reading section to cover for the math section (I took it once before) and pass but every time I do the reading practice I would always get in the 38-40 range and it’s just stressing me out because I don’t think I can ever raise my score... My test is scheduled for September 22 but I don’t know if I can raise my score by that time I just feel so stupid because everyone says it’s so easy but for me it isn’t... What can I do?
  13. I want to go into the SLP program but I need to do a Post Bacc before I can get in. I’m worried for so many reasons and I’m losing sleep over it.. First, I am not a science or math person. I was never good at science and it is my weak point. I am a Junior in Undergrad right now and I am something like an Educations major because I thought about the teacher route until I found out about SLP. I would always avoid the hard science classes during undergrad because I was so afraid to get Cs and Ds or even fail. My gpa is not very competitive.. due to personal reasons I couldn’t do well in my freshman and Sophomore year. During my Junior year and Sophomore year, I have gotten 99% As though. by the time I graduate I will have around a 3.3 ~ 3.4 which when I read from so many forums doesn’t seem to be good enough and I will be rejected everywhere I apply. I’m terrified because I never did well in science and math and I know that the SLP program is very science heavy and I’m so scared that I won’t pass any of the classes required in the program and even for the post bacc. I know I have to get a good GPA for post bacc to even pull myself up as a good candidate to be considered but I’m so scared that those science courses will pull me down. I want to go into the SLP program but I’m so torn and stressed even thinking about it... My parents and their friends in SLP tell me that the studying is manageable and it isn’t that hard but I think they’re just very smart people and it stresses me even more. I’m stressing over the GRE too because I’m not that smart and although I will study and try hard, I don’t know if I can get a good score that fits the program standards. I live in LA and I don’t want to go out-of-state because not only can I not pay for it, I don’t want to go that far away and I want to stay near home.. I do want to do SLP... Can I get some advice?
  14. Writing this because when I was applying for MU, there was very little information about it because the program was (and still is) so new. I think everyone that's considering attending there should know as much about it as possible, because the school you choose really does have an impact on the knowledge you enter the field with. Also, it's expensive, so I'd hate to see more people drop almost $80k and hate it, like a lot of my classmates, or regret it, like almost all of us. About the School: MU is a private university located in West Long Branch, NJ approximately one mile from the beach. Tuition for the 2 year, 6 semester program will run you about $77,000. Courses and clinic take place at the Graduate Center, located on a busy highway. You will see the beautiful, well maintained Main Campus only a handful of times during your two years, unless you go there on your own. The SLP program received accreditation in Winter 2019. About the Department: Overall, the department was great up until Spring 2019, which is when things started falling apart. It seemed like once they got accreditation, they just didn't care anymore. The Department Chair: She was more involved with the cohort below mine, as she didn't teach any of our classes that she normally does (Aphasia, Dysphagia). As a result, she barely knew us by name and openly admitted to not knowing us at all. Which isn't a big deal, but for a school that preaches about its small, close knit community, she sure didn't make it feel this way. Contacting the chair was hit or miss for a lot of my classmates, even in urgent matters. There was also an uncalled for attitude most of the time that we were never really sure why it existed. The Professors: FYI this might not pertain as much to future students because there are courses/professors I can no longer comment on because there have been such drastic faculty changes over the last year or so, but there are a few professors that might still be there when/if you apply. Fluency/ASD: this professor is SO passionate about all things SLP. It is very obvious he loves being an SLP and teaching future SLPs. He was available pretty much all the time via email and was always willing to set up office visits or phone calls. Aphasia/Dysphagia/TBI: when I took these courses, they used an adjunct professor because the chair, who usually teaches them, was unable to (maybe it was for the best though, because the first year I was paired with told me she gave two question exams and many people were struggling in the classes). Overall, she wasn't horrible at teaching. Her first semester teaching was rough, as expected, but her second semester she developed a more objective and fair way of grading. Our biggest issues with her were when she told her during the first semester she "never really wanted to teach" and trying to explain to us how we essentially came last on her list of things to do. I'm not asking to be number one, but 1) we're paying (A LOT) for an education and it shouldn't be negatively impacted because of the professor's inability to balance jobs (maybe don't do both then?!) and 2) why would you even say that?! Motor Speech Disorders: can't comment, new professor Voice Resonance Disorders: can't comment, new professor Introduction to Clinical Methods: taught by the clinic director, who is hot and cold and treats students like children Pediatric Language Disorders: can't comment (the professor I had taught it to the cohort below me but has left since then, so IDK who will be teaching it in the future) Research Methods/Speech Sound Disorders: I had a professor who left the program, but it is now taught by the professor who teaches Fluency and ASD AAC: professor is very passionate about AAC and is very knowledgable; however, once COVID-19 turned classes online, she didn't post any lectures except one Zoom meeting... The Secretary: Hands down the best member of the department. She's always so friendly and willing to help you out. She does A LOT for the program. What a gem. Issues: Cheating and Academic Dishonesty: If you want to go to a graduate school where you can cheat, go to Monmouth! There were SERIOUS cheating problems starting in summer 2018 (yes, the very first semester) which just increased as time passed because the department didn't do anything about it, so other students realized how easy it was to cheat. Of course, I was being facetious - don't go to a school because they don't care or do anything about cheating. It really sucks when you study your ass off and do everything you should to do well, but then you look around and see half of your classmates cheating. I know for a fact an advisor was made aware of the cheating situation in fall 2018 and nothing changed until our TBI final (fall 2019), when it was apparent that the professor was informed of the issue. People still cheated during that final though, because the professor remained on her computer (which is what all the professors do during exams), and cheated in our AAC midterm (spring 2020), too. Loss of A BUNCH of Faculty Members: Losing faculty meant the department had to scramble (literally, there were times we didn't know who'd be teaching the course until a week before) December 2018: lost the PhD professor that taught Motor Speech Disorders and Voice/Resonance Disorders AND the professor who was brought in to teach the aphasia course decided she was not going to return (she came back for TBI in fall 2019 after being asked - aka begged - because they had NO ONE to teach) May 2019: the adjunct professor who took over the chair's position for teaching dysphagia decided she was not going to return June-ish 2019: lost another PhD professor who did research and supervised students in clinic July-ish 2019: lost another professor who specializes in and teaches AAC. We have a Rett Syndrome program and she was an asset to clinic because of this. August 2019: lost the program's most valuable PhD professor. She taught one class each semester, was very knowledgable, and was always available to her students. Lack of Communication: There were issues with where to send praxis scores, because the department never told us all the places we needed to send scores to (not even during their praxis bootcamp), and when confronted about it, she insisted that the department has been communicating with us the entire time when they were NOT. Also, there were major communication issues about the comprehensive portfolio all graduating students must complete. We were given basic a Word document about it in fall 2019 during out Autism class and were never told anything else, and the document wasn't very detailed in regards to how they wanted things structured and written. This led to one of our professors getting swarmed with emails from my entire cohort and the chair did very little during this even though she was technically in charge of the portfolio. No additional information was ever shared with us, which made it difficult and VERY stressful to complete the portfolio. The lack of communication from a department whose education lies in communication is pathetic. External Practicum Placements: some students didn't get a medical placement at all (who wanted one) and some got two medical placements, some got the exact sites they wanted while others didn't at all. There was definitely unfairness occurring in giving out sites. Preparedness for Externships: there are quite a few sites that have not been happy with Monmouth students. as they feel they are not prepared well Class/Semester Structure: I'll share my schedule as a first and second year student, but this could change, especially with COVID-19 (I'll try to add notes to things I know changed) Summer 2018: 2 classes - Intro to Clinical Methods and Pediatric Language Disorders. Classes Monday - Thursday, one class was MW, the other TTH, for 3 hours each (I believe it was 9ish-12 ish and 12:30-3:45) Fall 2019: 4 classes + on campus clinic Mondays: clinic (differing time slots for each group of 4 students, anywhere from starting at 9:00 am to ending at 7:00 pm) Tuesdays: 2 classes (speech sound disorders & voice, we were there from about 11am to 6 pm bc of gaps b/w the classes) Wednesdays: clinic (same schedule as Monday) Thursdays: 2 classes (motor speech & aphasia, there from about 11am to 730 pm due to gaps) Fridays: Seminar and Group Therapy. Seminar occurred before group, group started at 1:00pm. Group consisted of small groups, so you'd be with your group of students with a group of adults/kids (kids group was cancelled after a few weeks because only 1 or 2 would show up for it). The rest of the group were mainly adults with aphasia, dysarthria, etc. Grand Rounds: near the end of the semester. you pick a client you have and present on them. Spring 2019: 3 classes + on campus clinic (we had too many in our cohort so our research class was separated into 2 groups) Mondays: clinic Tuesdays: research 1 & dysphagia (we were there from 12ish to 8:30ish, with about a 1 hour break in between) Wednesdays: clinic Thursdays: fluency & research 2 (about 9:30 to 4:30) Fridays: seminar (45 min - 1 hr) and group therapy (this was changed so that only one group would go per week, so everyone had to drive to campus for the 45 min seminar and then could leave unless they had group - this changed with the latest cohort, seminar was removed) Summer B 2019: 2 classes (assessment & audiology) Each class took place twice a week, but on the same day. We were there for approximately 7ish hours each day (2 days per week) Summer E 2019: Diagnostics (on campus clinic where you assess clients). Twice per week, for about 3.5 hours. Either MW or TTH. On Mondays/Tuesdays you'd assess the client, reports are due by the beginning of "class" on Wednesday or Thursday, then once it's edited and finalized, you use the rest of the 3 hours to plan for the upcoming week's assessment. (for summer 2020, diagnostics is utilizing simucase) Fall 2019: 2 classes + external practicum Tuesdays: ASD 6-9 Thursdays: TBI 6-9 Spring 2020: 2 classes + external practicum Wednesdays: AAC Online: Professional Issues External practicum for spring semesters have a "Clinical Expo" where you prepare a project/presentation (either pertaining to an on campus client if you're a first year or relating to your externship if you're a second year) My personal feelings towards the program: I loved the program until all the issues began. Once we started losing faculty, the professors that were brought in were questionable in regards to their teaching abilities. It was apparent they were good at their day job, but teaching SLP was a challenge for most. Many of my classmates, myself included, feel ill prepared to enter the field. We believe the department really did the bare minimum, which coincidentally began when they received accreditation status. There are some professors who are good at their jobs and truly care, but that doesn't make up for those that weren't so great, nor does it make up for the departments total disregard of major issues and their lack of communication. Many us of regret choosing Monmouth because the program is NOT worth the ridiculous cost of tuition. If it was an amazing program that provided a quality education and really "opened doors" after graduation, I could maybe justify the $75k for it. But for a lackluster, inadequate education? Nope, not worth it unless you have to or really want to go there.
  15. Anyone applying to TWUs TETN Cycle 10 program? If so, what region are you in? What’re your stats?
  16. Hey ya'll! I am currently an undergrad student at FIU in Miami and hope to stay down here for grad school. Does anyone have information about the following programs -FIU -FSU (distance, I'd like to stay in Miami) -Nova Southeastern I would love to hear about your experiences applying to these programs, and what some of you guys did that you think helped you get in to the program. I have a high undergraduate GPA, but I would love to hear from you guys who applied to these programs to see if my GPA matches up. Thanks
  17. Has anyone attended the University of Montana's Speech Pathology program?? I'd like to get some feedback on the on campus program. Thanks!
  18. Hi everyone! I am a current undergrad in communication disorders and sciences and I am getting ready to apply to grad schools this Fall. I have a 3.8 GPA and some experience and strong letters of rec; however, I recently took the GRE and I scored horribly. With that being said, I am now looking into applying to schools that don't require the GRE. I would retake it but at this moment in time I don't have the money to pay for it. I was wondering if anyone can share the schools that for sure don't require the GRE. Thank You.
  19. Hi all! I recently took the GRE and I received a 146V, 134Q (I know, super embarrassing), and I’m still waiting on the writing score. My GPA overall is a 3.21. I unfortunately don’t have time to re-take the GRE. Do I still have a chance of getting in? I’m planning on applying everywhere, I have volunteer experience, pre-school teaching experience, and SLPA experience for about a year. I’m also bilingual. Your opinions are appreciated!
  20. Is anyone attending the info session today on campus? Or if you went last year and have any idea what to expect, I'd be super grateful!
  21. Hi, I'm a senior now and I am in the process of applying to grad schools for fall 2020. I recently took the gre and scored fairly bad (V:145, Q:143, writing: 4.5). I know SLP schools generally look for 150 for each section, but I am not sure if I could improve because I did study the whole summer and that's what I got. Should I try harder or try to beef up my applications some other way? I do not have research experience because it is extremely competitive at my school to get in one. I do have experience with volunteering over the summer with children who had speech sound disorders and I worked with children for a summer camp (not SLP related). Other than that I just tutor people in a linguistics course. I really want to get into grad school, just didn't leave myself much opportunity to stand out that much. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  22. Dear all, I'm from Singapore and I got accepted to Flinders and curtin university, looking to study Speech pathology (bachelor). I'm at a loss as to which to go for. Both similar in pricing and fees. questions: 1) are there many Singaporeans in Flinders &/ curtin university for speech? 2) is Flinders campus ok? (location, are there many drunkards around? hostel accommodations?) If you are also apply for speech for 2020 intake, pls contact me @ alzena.chiam@gmail.com
  23. I've been going back and forth between the two and having a hard time deciding because they are SO different. If anyone could provide insight on any info they know about the programs please let me know!
  24. Can anyone give me any insight into these programs? I received a substantial funding offer from my undergrad university and it has been hard to compare the pros at these schools to the pro of ridiculously less debt. I still want to keep my options open and would really appreciate if anyone has any reasons as to why they love any of these schools or feel like the cost was/will be worth it. So far the biggest thing to me has been the incredible clinical placements at some of these programs but I still can not see if that is worth the cost. I really appreciate any help/advice!!! Thank you in advance!
  25. Hey ya'll, I have been waitlisted to Loyola Maryland and was told that I was on the first tier within the three tiers. Today I received an email saying that they accepted the first group of people off of the waitlist and I was not one of them. Has this happened to anyone else OR Does anyone else know how many people have been waitlisted from Loyola Maryland SLP School?
