Greetings all!—I am a new member here and I was wondering if anybody may be able to provide advice with respect to my situation. Are mental health counseling programs very competitive—esp. compared to social work programs? I am specifically interested in CUNY-Hunter College's program but worry I don't have enough experience aside from my 5-month research stint and three years at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, as well as work at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (also as an office assistant like at NYSPI). Because I am in a very poor financial situation, I cannot afford to travel from place to place to volunteer (I reside in Westchester County). As for my cumulative g.p.a., it is 3.89. Should I even bother applying? Thank you for your help.
