Hi I'm applying to UTD, UTHSC SA, UTH, Tennessee State, and Texas State. I'm in the process of still applying. I was just wondering if anyone know if UTD focuses more on the experience with the major or the averages. All the schools actually.

I feel like it's mostly the overall applicant!

Just took my GRE: How slim are my chances? 

Applying for the following schools:

• Nevada State College
• University of Arizona
• University of Northern Iowa

My stats:

GRE: QR | 144 VR | 140 AW | TBA [Taken 12/31/19]
GPA: Major: 4.0, cumulative: 3.9
Experiences:
• Worked as a tutor at college (1 year)
• Shadowed SNF SLP (1 month)
• NSSLHA Chapter president (1 year)
• Trilingual: Tagalog, English, American Sign Language

I'd appreciate the feedback and the advice you guys can give me. The deadline for the schools I am applying for is on January 15th, so I really don't have a chance to take the GRE again. I just wanted to know how slim my chances are with these things I'm bringing into my application.

Indiana has a great program! If I weren't from Bloomington I definitely would aim for their program. If you have any questions feel free to message! My dad actually works in the department.

Hey y'all, I am applying for Fall 2020 as well. I made an account on here almost 4 years ago asking for advice about how to get into this field. I was about to graduate college with a completely unrelated degree and the advice I got here helped me figure out a plan to pursue a career as an SLP. After doing a post-bacc online while working full time I'm finally ready to put the plan into action!!! It has been a long road but I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I applied to UGA, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, West Georgia, UTHSC, Florida Atlantic University, University of Central Florida, Tennessee State, and U. of South Carolina. My biggest fear is getting rejected from every single school after all these years and going into debt to take prerequisites. Fingers crossed!

If anyone is curious which schools will overlook a below-average GPA for good GRE scores, I'll let you know where I get accepted lol

GPA: 3.45

GRE: 169V 155Q 5.5 AW

Good luck everyone!

Good luck to all of you! I'm not seeing much overlap in schools with anyone else (I'm not applying to any schools in CA), but I applied to:

University of Texas-Austin, University of Arizona, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, St. Xavier University, University of Washington (MedSLP), Vanderbilt University, University of Illinois

Overall GPA 3.9 || CSD GPA 4.0 (originally out-of-field, currently in a leveling program)

GRE 166V, 164Q, 5.5AW 

I submitted my last applications on December 31 and now I'm sitting here anxiously refreshing all of the pages in the hopes that something will change even though I know programs aren't sending out decisions for at least another month...

Finally sent in the last of my applications! I really hate the waiting but I'm feeling hopeful and trying to avoid obsessing. I'm currently finishing up my last semester of undergrad and work as a research assistant at my current school. I'm sort of an out of major applicant since my major was self-designed and I don't have all of the pre-reqs done, so I'm applying to three year programs with the hope of finishing early. Good luck everybody! 

Major: Speech and Language Science, Minor: Latin

Overall GPA: 3.96// GRE: 160 V 149 Q 4.5 AW

Applying to: Purdue University, Syracuse University, Temple University, UConn, SUNY Buffalo, UMaine, and University of Rhode Island

Has anyone heard from Indiana State about an interview? I know that they watched my youtube video last Tuesday so I thought for sure would've gotten an email to interview sometime last week.

Oh awesome! Does your application say completed in CSDCAS? Not verified?

 

Mine did not take long at all to be verified, maybe a week or so...
