    I’m not sure about the average gpa for incoming grad students in that major though please do check with the individual school’s admissions office. It is most likely pretty competitive since there are not that many guidance counselor positions as it especially seems that they don’t usually leave their jobs til retirement 🙂 Congratulations in getting your degree in speech pathology! Not sure if the law is that guidance counselors need to have earned a teaching degree with some experience within a classroom setting before obtaining a job as a guidance counselor though it may depend on the state.

    For general info: http://www.bls.gov/oco and can search ‘counselors’ or such.

    Just fyi, please steer clear of online, for-profit schools such as university of phoenix and strayer as they are merely out to ‘make a profit’: http://www.uopsucks.com

    There are several advantages to shopping online, the first one being the ability to shop at a time that is convenient to you, not just when the shops are open. The second advantage of shopping online is that goods are often cheaper as the seller does not have the costs of running a shop and having to pay wages to salespeople, insurance and all of the other running costs of a real world business.
