  1. Hi everyone! I'm getting started and planning ahead for the fall when I'll be applying to PSU's Counselor Education program, and I was wondering if anyone had any words of advice -- I applied to the PSU MSW program last year and wasn't accepted, which actually turned out to be fine because it made me reflect on exactly what program to pursue, and I've settled on an MFT Counselor track in the Graduate School of Education at PSU. That said, the application process last year was so stressful and it was obviously tough to be rejected, so I'm trying to come back much stronger this year. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.4, and I have a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. I've volunteered in a domestic violence shelter for about a year (it will be 1.5 years by the time applications are due) doing direct-service work with participants, and have worked in administration at a couple of nonprofits for the last 6 years. I'm hoping to take the prerequisite 'Intro to Counseling' course at PSU this fall as a non-degree seeking student to get a little more face-time at the university and possibly make some connections there (the admissions advisor I spoke to said it was a good starting point). Does anyone have any wisdom to share? For the MSW program, the piece that I wasn't fully aware of was how much emphasis they put on direct social work experience, and I think that's why I wasn't accepted. I'm curious to know if there are any pieces like that in the GSE Counselor master's program that I should try and address now. Thanks!
  2. Hi all! I want to apply to grad school this year to obtain my MSW, but I am concerned due to my undergraduate record. I attended a UC and graduated with a 2.85 GPA. I really want to attend Portland State University, and was wondering if any can tell me if this is possible? Do I have a chance? My Upper Division GPA that they ask for is a 3.4. I graduated in 2017 and have worked as an Interventionist to at-risk youth in my community, and am considering doing this another year for more experience. All help, advice, and comments are appreciated! Thank you :)

    Portland State University

    I am still waiting to hear back from Portland State University for the fall of 2018. I applied for Health Management and Policy. I have waited roughly a month or so, I sent an email and I received an email stating I would hear by April 15th. Well, UMASS Amherst told me I have until April 15th to accept or decline their acceptance. Portland is my top school, the waiting is making me extremely tired.When should I send another email?Or should I just wait it out? Has anyone heard back from Portland? Has anyone been accepted into UMASS for their MPH?
  4. Hi All! I am anxiously awaiting news about PSU MSW acceptance news and wondering if anyone has received news yet. Thanks!
  5. Hi all! I'm only applying to one PhD program so I am very nervous about getting admitted. Making it worse is that there is no information on here at all about my intended program. Is anyone else out there applying to the Earth, Environment, and Society PhD program at Portland State University?! Or has anyone previously applied or attended? Just looking for some people to commiserate with! Background stats for me: Undergrad: 3.0 GPA, UC Berkeley, Physics Masters: ~4.0 (no grades, written evaluations only), Evergreen State College, Environmental Science/Studies Experience: Tons of work experience in meteorologic data analysis for wind farms, coordinating educational programs, teaching college math/science, and working on science and sustainability with inmates in prisons. 1 conference paper, 1 conference presentation, 1 conference poster (AGU), 1 publication (chapter in book). Excellent letters of rec. GRE above average for PSU admits. Think I will get in? Cheers!
  6. Hey everyone, I know, I know the deadline is coming up fast. In fact I had already made my decision before receiving an email from PSU. I was planning on attending the University of Washington's CoreSLP program, with a grant from the university and the prospects of continuing working on the bilingual language acquisition research project I am working on during my gap year. (I should mention that I was an undergrad at UW and my family lives close to Seattle). However, I received an email this morning from PSU offering me a position in their Bilingual Research Lab, a modest tuition remission, and a monthly stipend. In the end, I think the cost is about the same. So, this isn't a research degree, but since I love it I am planning on doing research while completing the program. PSU, along with SDSU and UT-Austin also offer bilingual certifications, which while not totally necessary (from what I understand) might give me an edge if I am hoping to practice in English and Spanish. I haven't really heard about funding from SDSU and UT-Austin, but I believe RA opportunities etc. are only offered after an offer is accepted. However, the PSU email kind of gave me hope that I could have a chance at those. Given all of this, do any of you have opinions about any of these schools/their labs/bilingual certifications that could make or break my decision? I just don't want to make the wrong decision
  7. Hey friends! Other than the email we received a couple weeks ago, have you all been accepted, wait listed, or rejected to PSU? I'm hoping to hear back soon.

    Applying to MSW programs

    Hello everyone! I am new to The Grad Cafe. I am an undergraduate student from Michigan currently pursuing a degree in Sociology. I will graduate in April 2017 (1 year away)! I plan to attend an MSW program straight out of undergrad and am curious to get some insight from those who have already gone through the process. I have been researching for a few months and right now I am most interested in: University of Michigan University of Washington University of Denver Portland State University UC Berkeley Smith College My path would be clinical. I am most interested in working with Children/youth but am interested in a variety of settings (schools, hospitals, nonprofits) at home and even abroad. For those that have been accepted to one or more of these programs, what are your stats? What type of experiences did you have? What do you think made you stand out? When did you start applying to MSW programs? Do you have any tips? How far in advance of application deadlines did you start preparing? Did anyone else go straight out of undergrad? Do you think that this put you at an advantage or disadvantage? Is applying as an out of state applicant an advantage or disadvantage to most of these programs? My current stats: GPA: 3.6 America Reads Corp Member - (reading tutor in public elementary school) Substitute teacher in Detroit Public Schools Alternative Spring Break Volunteer (2 years in a row) Vice President of Student Organization - Have been involved in lots of event planning, volunteering/ and volunteer project creation, professional development, fundraising, etc. WHAT ARE MY CHANCES? WHAT CAN I DO IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS TO MAKE MYSELF A STRONGER APPLICANT COME WINTER? WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR EXPERIENCES IN THESE PROGRAMS? Thanks so much for any information you can share with me! I am so excited for my future in this field and to speak with some of you who share similar aspirations! Thanks everyone

    Choosing a school

    I was just accepted to MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston as well as the College of Saint Rose for graduate programs in speech-language pathology. I'm waiting to hear back from Portland State University and University of New Hampshire as well. It's going to be a really hard decision to make, so I was wondering if anyone had advice regarding any of these schools. I'm pretty sure I want to develop a special interest in neurogenic disorders, but I also want to ensure that I get quality experience in all areas of the field. Thanks!
  10. An announcement was made last week about Dr. Chabon's move as chair of the department to serve as associate dean of the humanities and social sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The new department chair is Dr. Christina Gildersleeve-Neumann. Also, two of the most notable faculty members, Dr. Rik Lemoncello and Dr. Kerry Mandulak, are leaving to join the newly created communication disorders program at Pacific University. There will be five faculty and staff members hired to fill in the gaps. Since this information has not been posted on the PSU website, I wanted for all of the prospective grad students to know what is going on with the speech and hearing sciences program. I think that a great deal of interest in the program at PSU was generated due to Dr. Chabon's presence in the program. Even though she will still be on campus, it will not be in the same capacity.
  11. Hi! Has anyone heard from PDX Applied Social and Community? I tried searching through the Results Survey for some clue as to when I'd hear back, but there isn't a single thing. On the site it says March, but I'm getting anxious. Let me know please!!
