Statement of Intent

All applicants must complete a Statement of Intent and there are two components to the Statement of Intent. The first section should be a maximum of 3,000 characters and should address the following topics, in particular the first four items:

  1. Outline reasons for choosing speech‑language pathology as a career;
  2. Highlight specific personal attributes that would be relevant for the profession;
  3. Emphasize academic and non‑academic accomplishments;
  4. Outline reasons for choosing the MHSc program in speech‑language pathology at the University of Toronto; and
  5. Demonstrate current knowledge about the profession of speech‑language pathology.

Applicants may also wish to use this statement to explain irregularities in their application and to outline any research experiences.

The second section of the Statement of Intent is a summary of volunteer experiences and should list:

  1. Volunteer experiences in the field of speech‑language pathology and/or audiology in point form, including dates, duration, total hours, populations, and the nature of activities in which the applicant participated; and
  2. Other relevant volunteer experiences, including dates, duration, populations, and activities.

So here’s a question. My 20th course is a full course. I only need .5 of a course to make the full 20 lengths. Anyone know how they manage that for sGPA? 

Hey! It's quiet in here :)

It will actually depend on your older courses, not the most recent ones. If to reach 20 half credits they need to extract the grade of some credits from your oldest semester (where you took more than 1 course), they will average that entire year and weigh it whatever you are missing to make 20 credits. It's a bit messy, hope it makes sense!

For the statement of intent, it's definitely challenging to fit everything in 500 words but it's possible! But definitely don't leave it last minute and have it reviewed by friends, profs, writing centres etc!
