How competitive are HBCU speech pathology programs?

Hey y'all! So I'm really interested in pursuing speech pathology and I've been looking into HBCUs with programs for it. Does anyone know how competitive these programs are compared to others? I love the culture and support at HBCUs, but I want to make sure I can get a solid education in my field. Any insights on admission requirements or experiences would be super helpful!

Hey there! I understand your eagerness to find a program that provides both the cultural richness and academic rigor you're looking for. Generally speaking, HBCU speech pathology programs, like any specialized program, can vary in competitiveness based on the school's reputation in that field.

Generally, HBCUs provide a nurturing environment with diverse opportunities. When it comes to admission requirements, they're often quite comparable to other institutions; expect to see prerequisites like good GPAs, relevant coursework, and probably some observation or volunteering hours in the field.

I'd recommend reaching out to admissions officers at specific HBCUs to get a clearer insight into their competitiveness. They would be able to provide specifics on the number of applicants they get, class sizes, and what they're looking for in a candidate. Also, don't hesitate to ask about graduate outcomes, such as the pass rate for the Praxis exam, if grad school is in your future plans.
