Speech/Language Pathology graduate school


Recommended Posts

I am currently a junior in college and have recently become very interested in graduate programs in speech/language pathology. I was originally wanting to be on the pre-med track, but after working at a summer camp for the past 2 summers for children with autism, ADHD, and other special needs, I fell in love with those populations of children. I know that speech/language pathologists often work with those populations. I am, however, a bit concerned about my grades, etc. I am hoping to graduate with around a 3.4 gpa which is on the lower side. I plan on studying for the GRE, so I hope to do well on that. I am a Neuroscience major, and my school does not have a SLP undergraduate major/program. Also, I am from Virginia, so I would be applying to places like UVa, Radford, Old Dominon, and James Madison. Any advice for when I apply next year? I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

I would recommend spending a lot of time this summer studying for the GRE.  Schools take all parts of your application into account, so a lower GPA could definitely be balanced out with a high GRE score :).  Good luck!
