“A Guide for Aspiring Speech-Language Pathologists: Getting into the Graduate Speech Program of your Dreams”
Who is the Author?
Karen George, MS, CCC-SLP is the author of this wonderful resource book and the founder of Chicago Speech Therapy. Karen’s commitment to the field of Speech Language Pathology and to aspiring Speech Language Pathologists is evident by the many programs (i.e. Speech Therapy Practice Associate Program) that she has created along her journey.
What are Other Aspiring SLPs are Saying?
“I love the checklists in the book! They helped me to stay organized and focus on one task at a time. There are so many different things that need to be completed for graduate school applications, there is no way I would have remembered to do everything on time. The checklist makes applying to school a lot less scary.”
“I just couldn’t be happier with this book. The book does all the work for you! Every chapter is helpful and is filled with information I needed to ace the application. Follow the instructions in the book and your application will write itself.”
Why I Loved the Book?
Checklists and Strategies: The theme of this book provides a wonderful foundation to feel supported throughout the whole process. Why recreate the wheel? A format and outline is provided right at your fingertips for you to take advantage of through the questions, checklists, tips and samples.
Authentic and Genuine: The feel of this book’s format creates a personal connection to the process of applying to graduate school through real conversations, questions and experiences that occur along the way. Topics from “Recovering from a Bad Semester” to “The Re-applicant”.
Case Studies: I loved this part, because it took real examples of a student’s profile (i.e. location, GPA, background information about the student, etc.) and provided their journey when applying for graduate school.
