The SLP graduate school application process

Hi!

Let me just say that I’ve been there. The graduate school application process can be a daunting one, especially if you’re hoping to become an Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).  There’s the GRE (that math section especially!), a personal statement, letters of recommendation and picking which schools you’d like to actually apply to! It’s a lot to consider and prepare for. The good news? You’re not alone. I’ll be updating this blog with tons of resources to help you along the way 🙂

My first tip: Find a graduate student (or anyone really). A graduate student mentor can help you to define your goals, check your personal statement for clarity, and provide you with an insight into the graduate school experience. If you do not currently have access to a graduate student, you should consider reaching out to the graduate school coordinator at the school(s) you are planning to apply to. The coordinators will generally send out an email and interested graduate students can volunteer to provide you with a tour of the university’s facilities and answer any questions you may have.

  1. Even though we’re applying to graduate programs in completely different disciplines, we graduate applicants need to stick together… even particle cosmologists face a painful and daunting admissions process, for a PhD this time around.
