42: Tips and Tricks for Applying to Graduate School

slp coffee talk episode 42

I remember the days when I was applying for graduate school as an SLP. The process can feel a bit overwhelming – especially when you are applying for the first time. 


That’s why, in this episode of SLP Coffee Talk,  I thought we would pay it forward to the people who are thinking about graduate school for Speech-Language Pathology. 


Listen in to my interview with special guest Shannon Briggs from SLP Corner who is an expert in SLP graduate school application and prep. 


If you are getting ready to apply, then be sure to grab a pen and paper so you can gather all of Shannon’s best tips!

  • Best advice for grad school applicants
