  1. Hello, I have applied for master of Mental Health Counseling program. I've got a few tough decisions. 1. Can I withdraw from my last choice even after I've accepted? I truly feel horrible about it. 2. Do any of you know the pros and cons between Williams&Mary vs Johns Hopkins Uni vs (BGSP)Boston Graduate School of psychoanalysis? I know BGSP is more specific, and I don't have psych background. Thank you so much to anyone who answers. This is weighing so heavily on my mind.
  2. Hey everyone! So I applied for several masters in counseling, and so far I've been accepted by University of Florida, Florida International University and was wait-listed by Florida State University. I am really unsure of what I should do. On one hand FIU is appealing because I have family that lives in Miami, and I know the area well. On the other hand I know UF is considered a more prestigious school and is well known, but the drawbacks for me is that their program is longer than most because it requires more credits (2 1/2 - 3 years). I am not sure if the extra year and extra tuition money are worth it. I am still waiting to hear from FSU. I am having a hard time making this decision, if anyone could give me some advice or input on the matter and their opinion on the school or program (if you are familiar with it) it would be greatly appreciated! One last thing. My acceptance letter did not mention funding. Could someone help me word an email where I thank them for the acceptance letter and ask about funding without accepting the offer? Thanks!
  3. I would be so grateful if someone could give me feedback on a statement of purpose! It's a little lengthy, but objectively, I think it reads well, so length may be a risk I'm willing to take. I'm pretty proud of it- poured my blood, sweat, and tears into it.
  4. I was wondering--how much does the reputation of the school matter when it comes to a degree in Mental Health Counseling? I applied to Baruch, Fordham, CCNY, and Brooklyn. So far I have been accepted to Baruch and Fordham and I have interviews at Brooklyn and CCNY (no idea how those will go yet...but I'm still in the running.) I like Baruch's department--I feel very much at home on that campus and really like the faculty. I also love the fact that the program is tiny and the people I know who've gone there have been very happy with their decisions in the past. Also, for the issues I'm most concerned with, there are two faculty members who would make excellent mentors. Overall, I just like the tight-knit, supportive, and organized nature of the program. It also helps that I can also pay for Baruch with no (or almost no) loans. Fordham, however, will require that I take out large loans even if I get a partial grad assistantship. I'm worried about paying the money back on a counselor's salary. The commitment to a grad assistantship will cut into time I would rather spend interning (I've contacted a potential practicum site that works with my population of interest and will start volunteering soon), teaching (I'm an adjunct now), or in a lab connected to something I care about (I would like to do research as a volunteer for a while). Also the program doesn't feel as warm and supportive as Baruch does and I think I want that at this particular point in my training because I'm expecting counseling training to be emotionally intense. I do like the faculty at Fordham too, though. The biggest worry I have with Baruch is I wonder if Fordham will help me get better internships than Baruch. Moreover, the research opportunities at Fordham seem great...but I can make them for myself at either Baruch or CCNY as long as I put in some extra effort (I'm affiliated with CCNY currently and think that I could possibly join a lab if I ask). I don't know. Is the debt worth it for Fordham? Are the internships worth it? Are there any advantages to Fordham over Baruch that I'm not thinking about at this point? I know this probably matters, but, career wise I'm torn between working at non-profits, private practice, and maybe a PhD later to go into academia (sounds scattered...I promise it's not we can save that rambling for another day).
  5. I've applied to Hunter, Baruch, Queens, City College, and Brooklyn. So far I've interviewed with City and Brooklyn, and have been admitted into Hunter. I also have an interview scheduled for Queens. Nothing from Baruch yet. Hunter was my top choice, so I'm elated that I have been accepted. However, I'm a bit hesitant to commit without weighing all my options. Those who have attended one of the aforementioned schools for MHC, or know someone who has, what was your/their experience? Which CUNY would you recommend? I know in the end it's up to me, but I'm always open to advice. Thank you!
  6. OK, so I am aware there is a thread like this from last year's application cycle, but I thought I'd go ahead and kick start the new potential grad students going for a MA/Ed.M or PhD in Counseling Psychology, Clinical Mental Health or School counseling for Fall 2012. I'm hoping to start a MA or Ed.M in Clinical Mental Health counseling, and am applying to Columbia TC, McGill, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Penn, Denver and NYU. I haven't found too many people in this boat and just thought I'd ask people where they are applying, and how the whole application is going so far! =)
  7. Hey guys - I'm new here and starting to organize myself to apply for mental health counseling and human development MA's in Fall 2012. Just thought I would open this up to talk about the hurdles faced for us UK students when applying to US and Canadian schools! In particular, issues about funding, GRE scores, the lovely WES evaluation process, admittance rates for international students and the like! Personally, I come from an average-ranked school in London and graduated with First Class honours in psychology and criminology. Most probably applying to Columbia TC, NYU Steinhardt, McGill, U of Denver, George Washington U and Johns Hopkins. Does anyone have any experience when it comes to international applications?!
