If you are searching for the right graduate school(s) to apply for a Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology, you have probably asked the question, “What do I need to score on the GRE in order to be competitive?” If you find a specific answer on any of the graduate school’s websites, let me know, because they are more elusive than the last ice cube at the bottom of a cup. No matter how many people you ask, and despite your polite e-mails to program directors requesting the information, many Universities just don’t post a requirement for whatever reason.
Then, to throw a wrench in your SLP graduate school plans, in 2010 the GRE ‘revised’ their test and changed the scoring. And don’t get me started on the application fees; you may need to take out a loan just to apply for these places. Jeesh…could applications be more complicated?! (check out one of my posts for help)
So of course you ask your friends who have already been admitted into an SLP graduate program or you search the all-knowing Google for answers. Just in case your friends don’t have a good answer, or you don’t have any friends, or Google failed you, I am here to offer some suggestions on what you should aim for.
