Question

Ok what is actually a competitive score to get into the top speech pathology schools like Vanderbilt and Washington? I know they look at other factors, but is this a huge weed out factor?

Each application is different but the general concensus is: "The GRE does not improve your chances much, but it can hurt them". Each department values GRE scores differently however, some really care about, others not so much, and some don't even look at it. You can either google the average GRE score at the school of your picking and the department you're applying for, or if that is not online, you can email the graduate coordinator for it. You can also ask them how much they value the GRE over other factors (although you may just get a response saying they look at the application as a whole, and that they cannot say).

Generally, speech path programs tend to put more stock into GPA, but a really good GRE score (say, above a 315-ish) can help offset an average or below average GPA. However, it's definitely something that depends on the school!

According to ASHA's edfind though Vanderbilt has a pretty high average GRE score (163V 158Q 4.7AW) on top of a 3.8-4.0 GPA. Washington has an average of 158V 155Q 4.5 AW and a GPA between 3.62-4.0.
