FL SLP Grad Students @ 04:00 pm

dee_slptobe:
Hey there! I'm studying Psychology for my Bachelors and I intend on receiving the Speech-Language Pathology Certificate and then apply to grad school however because FIU does not offer a Bachelors degree in Communication and Science Disorder I'm SUPER limited. I could only really apply for FIU or Nova (which I don't really want to attend). I'm thinking of reaching out to UF, FSU, UCF and see if I could possibly transfer any credits from the pre-requisties I receive from the SLP Certificate courses I take and maybe receive my Communication and Science Disorder from one of the other schools. Obviously I don't want to buwaste any more time or money but grad school is so competitve and the more I research the more nervous I am. I would just appreciate any feedback from anyone that attends any Florida Universities for SLP. As much as I research I'd rather hear how much they like the campus, department, professors, and overall program. Also, what your GPA, chariable history/volunteer backround, GRE scores were when you applied. Thanks in advance! :)

Although i dont have the answer for u i just wanted to say that i am in the exact same boat! im a psych major at university of idaho and want to go to grad school for slp. u r right, we are verrrrry limited. I have been advised to look for grad schools with leveling courses, which take the credits u have from your bachelors and they determine what courses you must complete at the grad school before beginning the masters program in slp. Not all grad schools do leveling, right now my only option is in oregon and i am also very nervous. I will let u know if i get any more advice applicable to you! Good luck:)
