Grad Schools for a Lower GPA


Recommended Posts

Hi! I have a relatively lower GPA (3.3). My major is Behavioral Neuropsychology so my advisor thinks most schools will consider my lower GPA because it is a harder major but I am still really nervous about applying. I want to be an early intervention SLP for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I would appreciate any insight people have about programs that are worth applying for. 

I would love to go somewhere southern but am open to more schools.

Thanks!

Look into RMUoHP. They are a fairly new program (first graduating class will be 2019), so they might not be too picky about GPA.

Just a reminder - GPA isn't everything. Programs will also look heavily on your letter of recs, personal statements, resume, GRE scores, and possible interview.

I have not taken the GRE yet but I've done well on practice exams and am taking it in April. I have experience working at a program for children with disabilities (including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, ODD, and speech impairments) so I feel that will help.

@kjgoo I agree with what was said regarding more than gpa. If you are lacking in the gpa beef up your application in other ways such as gaining experience to put in your letter of intent, strong work experience/connection to professors so they can write your letter of recommendation. Also if you can apply to a wide variety of programs. Check ASHAedfind and find programs that have a smaller number of applicants applying to them. I found myself that if I had an interview to a program I had better success so look for programs with this option. This way they can place a name to an application and you can shine in person. You can do this! I had a spot on gpa as yours and after three different application cycles I was accepted into my grad program. Good luck :)
