This is about the MA program in Speech-Language Pathology.

This department is falling apart. There is no money, no TAships, very few RAships and those for brown-nosers only. Facilities are rotting. Profs are retiring and quitting and the university won't give any money to hire anyone to replace them. Classes are wastes of time, taught by profs who don't care and aren't trying anymore—or, alternately, think they're God's gift and drown you in busy work and blame you for not appreciating their unique genius. Your personal interests and goals will be ignored. Finally, no one graduates on time. No one. Even if you do everything right, you just won't.

There's a reason the chair of the department has been tossed around like a hot potato (we're about to have our 4th chair in 11 years). No one would want to be responsible for this mess.

The ONLY redeeming quality of Temple speech is that the supervisors in the school clinic are outstanding. Ann, Patti, Kim, Frannie, and Paula are great clinicians who really know their stuff and you will learn tremendous amounts from them. If you end up here, spend your effort learning from them until you get your field placements.

But really, seriously, don't go here. I can't believe I picked this awful, awful place over Penn State.
