Hey everyone,

I know it's beginning to look a lot like admission decisions season so I just wanted to ask whether anyone else was accepted to Duquesne's Post-Baccalaureate Program? I would also be interested in hearing from any Duquesne alumni or individuals familiar with either the University, the SLP program, or just other aspects of student life (e.g., extracurriculars, the city, etc.). 

I am pretty excited about the opportunity to attend, especially since Post-Bacc students automatically transition into the M.S. stage of the program, as well as because of the wide variety of specialty clinics within the department. Outside of SLP, I also applied to Duquesne because it's a Catholic college so I'm hoping there'll be a lot of opportunities for community service and campus ministry.

Hello! Congrats on your acceptance! I was considered applying to Duquesne but decided not to because they were only accepting a handful of students this year (the department head I emailed over the summer said somewhere around 2-3!). From what I can tell, it's a very tight-knit program. I also get the impression that their undergrads make up a substantial portion of their graduate students since they weren't accepting graduate applications this cycle. I don't know much else, but I'm sure someone around here can give you more info.

Pittsburgh itself is nice, too, and has really improved over the years. I've only been there a few times, but you can probably find out more about Pittsburgh in the City section of these forums.

Thanks for the advice. I've spoken to some people who know about the university already but I think I'll make a quick visit in order to get a better perspective of campus. I was hoping there would at least be a few Duquesne students/alumni on GradCafe haha but it doesn't look like it.
