  1. Hi all! I thought I'd start a thread for those of us applying/waiting/accepted or declined into master's for mental health counseling programs. I'm just curious about others' experiences with the admissions/decisions process so far and wanted to connect!
  2. Hey everyone, I'm new to GradCafe so I hope I'm posting this in the right place! I applied to 4 MFT programs this year, all CSUs - CSU East Bay, San Diego State, San Francisco State, and San Jose State. I got rejected from SDSU and accepted to SJSU, still waiting to hear back from EB and SF. I'm looking for a program that's integrative - not just focused mostly on one therapy method. I interviewed with 2 professors at SJSU and they mentioned that SJSU's program is consistently CBT focused and that SFSU, for example, is mostly psychodynamic (not sure if they meant the clinical or MFT program, they are 2 separate programs at SFSU). However, the websites for ALL the schools say that their programs are integrative, even San Jose. I've reached out to professors at SF and EB asking but no response Anyone have any input on these programs and how much different methods of therapy are taught/discussed? I have to give SJSU a response by April 5th and SF and EB could take until May or even June to make an admission decision! I don't want to turn down a great school like SJSU but I also want to attend the program that's a good fit for the kind of therapist I want to be. I also don't want to wait another year to apply if I say no to SJ and don't get in anywhere else! Thanks everyone! Best of luck on your admissions decisions this year!
  3. Hi all! I received an invitation for a group interview for Penn's Counseling and Mental Health Services master's program, and was wondering if anyone who has gone through this interview in the past has any advice or insight they'd be willing to share! Thank you very much in advance! 🙂 *Cross-posted in "Interviews and Visits" FYI
  4. Howdy friends, I was just accepted into CSUN's MFT program after having been waitlisted. I'm still waiting to hear back from CSULB, but if I were to get accepted, does anyone have any advice on how to decide which school? Thanks
  5. Hi, everyone! Would really appreciate any insight or advice as I struggle with my grad school decision. I got in to both of my top masters programs: Boston University School of Medicine and Penn GSE. I love both schools so much, and am really struggling to decide where to go. I like that BU's program is in their medical school and is CACREP accredited. I also really could see myself living in Boston. But then UPenn is UPenn, and I would get two masters in two years. I haven't heard much about living in Philadelphia, so that's really my only worry. If you have any advice or insight into either of these programs or cities, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!!
  6. Hi guys! I'm an applicant for the CMHS year 1 program fall 2021 at UPenn GSE. My application was complete on 02/05 and I still haven't received any updates regarding my application, so I'm getting really nervous. I know this may be a long shot, but does anyone who submitted their application in early February hear back from the program?

  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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 conducted intreviews with patients and family members. I have also worked in clinical research ( neurocognitive science ( doing ECGs) and perinatal mental health labs, MRI labs). I have a publication in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry. I graduated 7 years ago with an Undergrad in Psychology and Behavioral sciences and minor in education. My status on SGS website is : under review. Hoping to hear back from other applicants. Good luck to everyone!
  12. 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!
  13. 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 seems to be done exclusively through externships. Thanks in advance!
  14. 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🙃
  15. 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), so the financial aspect does not count. Plus I have professors whose research interests are closely aligned with mine at both universities, so I’m quite torn. What would you guys do or advise?
  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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!
  19. 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 offer this intake period but what can I do to improve my chances in the future? I didn't see a thread on this already so I thought I would start one.
  20. 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 and more importantly do not have any educational background in counselling or psychology - do you think I would stand a better chance at lower tier universities? Do you have any recommendations? I'm also trying to understand the relative importance universities place on educational background when assessing applicants....your two cents please!
  21. 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.
  22. 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 quick question on Columbia University, Teachers College. I applied to their mental health counseling program as well, but I noticed that they only have 5 or 6 faculty members in this department, and a ton of visiting lecturers. Is anyone currently studying mental health counseling at Teachers College and would like to let me learn a little bit on what your experience is with this program? Thank you!
  23. 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 was asked a lot of questions about my current enrollment, thoughts about art, and less about my experience, skills, and why I want to be in the program. Some example questions were: -What is a piece of art that impacted your life in the last five years? -Dead or alive, three people you would want to have dinner with? -Teach me something I do not know I felt unprepared for these type of abstract questions, especially coming from a clinical psychology research program. Texas Tech University (Ph.D- Counseling Psychology) this interview was very extensive. I spent a total of 4 hours with the POI interviewing with her and discussing research. In addition, I interviewed with 6 other faculty members. -ultimately, i felt I was close to getting into the program but the POI's feedback explained that I did not ask questions about the other faculties research interest. Please reply with your experiences.
  24. 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 beyond another program though I think it may be worth the investment. Any thoughts on how the quality of these programs compare?
  25. 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?
