  1. Not that anybody really cares, but figured I'd update you. My application was under review for several weeks because of concern over the possibility of an unethical dual relationship between myself and a faculty member with whom I previously had a therapeutic relationship. My application was accepted to move on in the process, however, it was decided that my previous relationship would be an issue of concern if I were accepted. Bummer.
  2. I appreciate your responses. I do understand the cause for concern, and maybe I did not make that clear in my first statement. I don't mean to make it sound as though I am being unfairly punished or anything, just expressing my frustration at the situation and asking for honest opinions on whether or not this could be appealed. I chose my therapist based on her specialization because of a traumatic experience I went through- and my therapist is one of a few in my area that I felt would truly be able to support me in that. This program is the only one in my state that is accredited for Marriage and Family Therapy. My other options for this include an online program or moving out of state, which is just not an option for me at this time. Again, I appreciate the responses. It does look as though my only option is to accept that unknowingly, a decision I made affected my chances at being accepted into the program. Bummer.
  3. I applied to a program in which my current therapist is a faculty member. This person is not in charge of my grades, but supervises a practicum site. In my feedback, I was told that I had a great application, but was rejected due to some faculty that found this dual relationship unethical. While I completely understand that this could be cause for concern- I am also pretty frustrated that the decision was not based on merit. The faculty member went to the board of ethics when I mentioned I was applying- who said as long as that person did not feel it would be an issue, it would be fine. My therapist made it clear that if I were accepted, the therapeutic relationship would end and that we would have no issues. This is the only school in my state accredited for what I want to accomplish. Is this a situation where an appeal could be acceptable? Or do I really just have to accept that when I happened to choose a therapist, I picked one of two in my town that would make it impossible for me to attend this program.
  4. Well, I've been told it is to see how you interact with the group before being accepted, as it is a small cohort. But Friday I was told decisions had not yet been made, and we would be notified either way once decisions were final.
  5. My program has a group interview with the date set for February 12, and I haven't heard either way. Am I the only one who thinks this is weird?
  6. My application was due Jan 10th. We got an e-mail last week about the process being in full-swing. It's not a huge program, so I feel like I've been waiting FOREVER to hear back.
  7. Hey everyone, this is my first post. I applied for an ETA in Thailand and the country doesn't require previous experience or knowledge of the language. I actually have quite a bit of teaching experience and I feel qualified, but I am a little worried that my interests for the side project will cause some friction if I make it to the second round. I am a psychology and gender studies major and I want to work with some NGO's focusing on trafficking of women. My sources on campus with experience in the country said it shouldn't be a huge deal, especially since it is my field of study, but I'm still worried. Anybody have any comments? Also, anybody else apply to Thailand? Thanks!
