  1. Hi all, Looking for feedback on why graduate students, you specifically, chose the programs you did for any of the following programs: CSDS/SLP, Audiology, PT, OT, MSW, or Counseling. Could it be because of financials, locations, scholarship/grants, faculty, etc. Any information would help and please feel free to expand from the examples given previously.
  2. Hi everyone, has anyone applied to the M.Ed in counselling and Psychotherapy at University of Toronto? Have you heard back yet? I thought of creating this thread to discuss our backgrounds, work experience and our entire application experience followed by the results (when we get them). I have 4 years of experience working in a renown first episode psychosis clinic as a symptom evaluator and neuropsychological evaluator. I conducted various clinical asessments, diagnoses, in depth psychiatric evaluations of in and out patients, wrote medical histories, case reviews and conducte
  3. This forum is for people who have been accepted to the University of Iowa PhD program for any psych area! I am trying to get to know some of the people who I will be getting to know on campus. I have lived in Iowa all my life so if anyone has any questions about Iowa or more specifically Iowa City (housing, social life, professors, etc...) post them here and we can all share our thoughts. I am so excited to start and UIowa is great!
  4. Hello everyone, So I am currently leaning toward choosing the Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program at Fordham University. Unfortunately, I couldn't find more information about the program from people who have first- or second-hand knowledge of it. I have spoken to a couple of first-year students, but their experience is limited, and there were no opportunities to speak directly to more senior students. Can anyone shed any light on this program? I am particularly interested in how research-productive the students can be and how supportive is the program regarding clinical training since it
  5. Anyone heard back from the masters in counseling program at cal state fullerton yet?? Haven't heard anything about an interview, the anxiety is draining🙃
  6. Hello! I’m an Asian student with offers of admission to the counseling graduate program at both Penn State and UPenn. I’m having a hard time deciding. Penn State’s program is ranked among the top ten, but UPenn seems to be more reputed as a school. However UPenn’s program is only a year long including the practicum , while Penn State offers a two year program with a practicum of 1.5 years. My goal is to pursue doctoral study (not seek licensure for practice) so I’m wondering if I should go ahead with UPenn. I will have to take a loan for either (and the tuition is in the same ball park),
  7. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  8. Did anyone on here get invited to Texas Woman's University interview day for the M.A. in counseling psychology? Would love to meet some people before the actual day!
  9. This thread is for applicants of master's in counseling, social work, and anything related! I haven't seen anything similar on here, so I wanted to start this. What programs are you applying to? Have you gotten in anywhere? Interviews? Let's talk! I'm a first year grad student and would love to hear about everyone's application process!
  10. Hi all, I am looking for an affordable and quality masters program that will eventually allow me to become a practicing licensed clinician upon graduation. This could either be an MSW (accredited by CSWE), an MFT/CFT program (accredited by COAMFTE), or a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program (accredited by CACREP). While money is a primary concern when it comes to making my decision about a program, I will also not sacrifice the quality of my education just because of the price. I am hoping to hear others' ideas about great programs that are not overwhelmingly expensive. Thanks!
  11. Who is applying to counselling psychology programs in Canada this fall? What can I do prepare my application? If anyone here has applied before, what are you tips? I am going into 4th year and will graduate in April 2020. My cumulative average is a 83.8% and my 3rd year average is a 68% (76% if you count the 3rd year courses I took in 2nd year summer) but I expect to bring it up by next year. I have close to 300 hours of paid/volunteer experience and will be doing a thesis. What can do to improve my application? I realize my stats are pretty weak so realistically I may not get an of
  12. Hello, I'm considering applying for a master's degree in counselling (fall 2020 intake). My prior qualifications are a bachelor's in biotechnology from India (2002) and master's in biomedical science from the UK (2007) with a GPA of 2.9. I have a GRE score of 317, a TOEFL score of 117 and extensive experience in working with children and adolescents in a variety of settings (non profits, schools etc) for over a decade. I'm considering the following schools: Lynch (Boston college), Curry (Virgina), UMass Boston and George Mason. However, I have been out of school for over a decade a
  13. Does anyone know when we'll be hearing back from San Jose State's Counselor Education program? I'm an undergraduate, and I applied for their Master's in Education with a concentration in Counseling and Student Personnel with a Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) credential.
  14. Hello, I'm a senior student right now waiting for offers and making decisions on where to go. I applied to mental health counseling programs but found limited resources on their comparisons in terms of qualities and all that. I got accepted by Northeastern Univ, , NYU, Boston College (all with mental health counseling master's) and University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in master of social work program. I would love to hear some comments and suggestions in terms of what you think is a good choice or what are some good resources to look at other than their school websites. I have a last q
  15. Hi Everyone, With the 2019 application cycle ending, I wanted to get everyone's input on how interviews went with faculty, POI, and current Students. I interviewed 2 times this cycle and got some great insight. I am interested in hearing about successful interviews and how an applicant answered a specific challenging question or a question on research. In addition, I asked for feedback from the 2 programs and got some great critical feedback to improve my interview skills for the next cycle. I interviewed for: Denver University (PSYD)- This was the strangest interview by far. I
  16. Hi all, angsting about this decision. They’re all terminal masters in counseling programs. I’ll also be hearing back from Columbia Teachers College in late April (recommendations not received in time for first wave of consideration). I’m also on the waitlist at Northwestern. I’ve received an offer for a graduate assistantship at Fordham but otherwise sporadic small scholarships and I have about a $6000 education award from serving in Americorps. I have an interview with the Wright Institute so not admitted yet. Otherwise Hunter is generally the most affordable. If a program is really above and
  17. Hi everyone, I have received an offer from Teachers College Columbia for their EdM in Psychological Counseling, along with an offer from NYU for an MA in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness. Keeping the cost aside, how do these two programs compare to each other?
  18. Hi! I was recently accepted to Lewis & Clark College for counseling and am interviewing at Portland State University this week. I haven't been accepted to PSU yet, obviously, so this might end up being a moot point, but I strongly prefer Lewis & Clark and wanted to see if anyone has any input. My main areas of concern are: Cost - L&C is more expensive by around $10,000 total, but from what I've heard from both PSU and Lewis & Clark is that they are more supportive of working during the program. PSU discourages working and students who have worked during the program ha
  19. Apparently I am a moron and didn't realize "clinical" doesn't necessarily mean "therapy." I was informed of this discrepancy in my thinking by a kind redditor who quickly disabused me of the notion that the easiest path towards becoming a therapist is to pursue an MSW. Guys, I don't know what to do. I feel so stupid. I really love the social justice aspect of MSW programs, and I am interested in exploring the root causes of societal problems, but... I don't know. Is becoming a therapist with your MSW really that hard to do? I know you have to complete many hours of supervision in order to get
  20. Hi all, I've been doing some reading on this topic, and I keep seeing that some states give LCSWs more "power," while others give more power to LPCs, and in other states there's minimal difference, etc.. My question is how do I find this information for the states I am interested in? If it helps, I'm looking at schools in Texas, New York, Colorado, and Massachusetts. I'm just not sure where to look. Thanks for any help.
  21. Hi all, I’m a current grad student going to school for my masters in school counseling. I majored in psychology in undergrad but for a while wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My undergrad GPA wasnt great (3.1). I’m on track to do well in my masters program (4.0 so far), but I also just started my program this past semester. I don’t have a lot of research experience aside from some typical undergrad research. I recently asked my current academic advisor how I can make myself a stronger PhD applicant (and if it’s realistic for me) so we will be meeting in the future to discuss. Part of
  22. Can someone tell me my chances of getting into a master's counseling program? I know it isn't crazy competitive but I'd like a current, rejected, accepted, or former counseling student to let me know the likelihood of getting in. LMK if you want school names to better help determine my fate, lol. Cumulative GPA: 3.2 Major (psychology) GPA: 3.6 GRE: (not great) Writing - 3.5 Quantitative - 146 Verbal - 150 Strong recommendation letters (3) Research Experience: Mentor at high schools and conduct research based on youth development with my various mentor
  23. Hello! I am looking for current/former/denied/accepted counseling students from these universities: University of South Carolina University of Utah Vanderbilt University University of Arkansas University of Vermont University of Texas at Tyler Regis University (Denver/Thornton) Texas Christian University Tarleton State University University of Texas at San Antonio I would like to know how long it took you to get accepted and what your GPA/GRE scores were? If you've been rejected from these programs, what were your GRE scores
  24. Curious to see if there are any other Lewis & Clark Marriage & Family Therapy applicants on here who have heard back. I was just offered an interview yesterday! I'm not sure what to expect. Anyone know how group interviews generally work in such a program?
  25. HI EVERYONE. I have three years of special education teaching experience and I'm interested in entering counseling as a profession later on and work with children and families in lower income neighborhoods and at-risk populations. I recently found Harvard's PSP program and I am intrigued -- would love to hear more about it from students, admitted prospective students, or other potential applicants. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW: your credentials - GRE score, degrees, life experiences, hobbies, leadership roles, whatever you think got you admitted, or what you are currently
