Admission to Graduate School; Evidence for Use of GRE, GPA, Written Essays
Speech Language Pathology
Admission to graduate school is a high priority for many programs. Lately, the GRE has been a “favorite target”—that is, that minorities do more poorly on the GRE. A statistical analysis will show that our students of color do as well on the GRE (and GPA) as white students. Further, regression analysis will demonstrate the variables that predict favorable outcomes for all students (and separately for minorities). Outcome will be defined in terms of academic and clinical skills. As important as this is, the variables that do NOT predict favorable outcomes will also be presented.
