Over the last several years, the field of Communication Disorders has experienced increasing numbers of applicants to Speech-Language Pathology graduate programs; yet, for many training programs, the number of openings has not changed. Competition for admission to Speech-Language Pathology graduate programs is fierce and the competitive climate has created complications for both students and programs (Ney, 1997). Applicants applying to more than one institution, with the hope of being admitted to at least one program, are required to submit applications with differing formats using a schedule of deadlines unique to each institution. Training programs have been handed an administrative headache as they are flooded with applications for admission. Some of the problems associated with the demand for admission might be avoided if several regional and/or state plans, or a universal enrollment management plan shared by all training programs were in place.
