Hampton University

Recommended Posts

I received an acceptance letter from Hampton last Friday. Has anyone else applied and heard back yet? Also, I applied there on a whim and I was wondering if anyone had any additional information about the program?

Thank you! I applied I think the end of December or early January and just heard back last Friday. Also, I sent my application in first and then had my professors send my recommendations separately when they were done. As for my stats they aren’t that impressive: 3.7 CD gpa, 148Q, 152V, and 4.5W.

 

Also, good luck :)

Ha your stats are actually better than mine. I hope to get in. Have you applied to any other schools? Also what made you apply to Hampton? I am hoping to get in since my stats are on the low end, plus I like the history of the school and its also by the beach. Im not gonna lie, some of the stuff I've heard about Hampton makes me nervous, but I still want to go there!

That's okay, I think you still have a chance! My friend was also accepted and her stats were a little lower than mine and she also retook the gre twice (145Q, 143V, 4W, and 3.63 gpa). Also, I've applied to eight schools: Hampton, Howard, Seton Hall, Elmhurst, Nova Southeastern, Cleveland state, Washington State, and University of Washington. And I knew I wanted to apply to Howard and I was trying to figure out another HBCU to possibly attend, so I figured why not Hampton. I've done more research about the program now that I have been accepted and I think it would a great place to get a degree, but like you there are a few things that worry me.

Me too I wanted to go to an hbcu as well. Do you know about your housing? Like where you will be staying? I'm hoping my experiences will make up for my low stats

Much like you @mimithebellydancerand @SLP<3 I wanted to go to an HBCU. Being from CA I've never experienced the culture of a predominantly Black or just not mostly white school. I've heard great things about the university and researched the program extensively before applying. I think it's going to be a great experience for all of us. Also, I secured an apartment! The rent is pretty cheap compared to where I'm from AND most spots come w/ a washer and dryer in unit (that's unheard of for a decent price out here), but I haven't heard anything about financial aid yet. I'm assuming they don't want us to work...so I'm hoping financial aid will cover it. Of course, I'm applying to scholarships like a mad woman but that part still worries me a bit. Are either of you open to exchanging info if I can figure out how to do it privately? I would love to know some people before stepping foot out there!

Don't get your hopes set on a TRUE HBCU experience in a graduate program, especially not speech. In a Facebook group I'm in for minority (I say this because they're not all black) SLPs/SLPAs/Audiologists (the group is called SISTAS if you're wondering/interested), there's a thread about SLP/CSD cohorts at MANY HBCUs have majority white students .... Hampton, TN State, NCCU, etc. It's wild. 

But as an HBCU (undergrad) grad .... I can tell you that you're gonna love homecoming :)

Congrats on getting in!

Hi! Congratulations and welcome to your new “Home By the Sea”! You have made a great choice in choosing Hampton University in your pursuits to become an SLP. I’m Shorell and a second year graduate student at Hampton in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. My roommate moved away after finishing the spring semester, so I have a vacancy. It’s a fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment, with washer and dryer. A queen size bed is available if interested. If any of you are still looking for housing, send me an email at shorell19@gmail.com. See you guys in the Fall and again congratulations!

Hey ladies, 

Like you all I applied to Hampton University SLP program and was accepted. I do plan on attending. How did you ladies arrange for housing ? Do y’all hold undergrad degrees in speech or will you be taking the prerequisite classes at Hampton as well? I would really like to get to speak with other students before going since I’m currently in Atl, Ga. Do you all plan on attending Orientation? I have no clue of what to expect. @mimithebellydancer @SLP<3 @Shorell19 @HoneyBee03 @*Speak2Me*

Oh! Also, I am on the 3 year track, so I will be taking all of the pre-requisite courses. Does anyone happen to have any of the syllabi/booklists?  I wasn't able to pre-register for any of my courses, so I don't have access to them on Blackboard (sadly!)
