  19. 19. The small size of Georgia State’s CSD program makes it ideal because you get so much individual attention from professors. ALUMNI TESTIMONIALS Georgia State is not so large that you feel like a number amongst the masses. I had lots of opportunities to build lasting relationships with students and faculty. The process for accepting students is not based solely on your GPA or GRE. It’s based on the whole person and all the skills you’ll bring to the program. In addition to learning about the practice of speech-language pathology, I was prepared to be a better communicator and facilitator of language. The CSD program allowed me to learn from enthusiastic, seasoned professionals and clinicians with different specialties.
